Editor's Note: We make mention in our video review that the Beolit 12 had to be manually reconnected to our Wi-Fi network each time it was powered up. B&O has since informed us this will be changed with a firmware update that will be available by the...

Very good sound ; Highly portable ; Impressive battery life ; Clean, unobtrusive design

Ridiculously priced ; Plagued by iPhone 4S AirPlay compatibility problems

The Beolit 12’s portability is convenient, and its sound quality well above average for a speaker of its size. However, justifying an $800 price tag is a huge stretch for us.

Bang & Olufsen's $990 Beolit 12 looks like nothing so much as a compact picnic basket with its rectangular box design and leather strap around the top. Oh, and it's also a speaker system designed for AirPlay and direct playback (via USB) from iPhones,...

Impressive sound quality; AirPlay feature; pleasingly portable

AirPlay battery life; some issues with awkward ports; price tag

We’d like to see AirPlay battery life longer than four hours, but overall, the Beolit 12 is very good: AirPlay functionality is great, and portability is impressive. If you just need a good portable system, there are plenty of quality transportable...

Geek Treat of the Week There are AirPlay speakers and there are AirPlay speakers. This unit from Danish hi-fi gods Bang & Olufsen is eye-wateringly expensive but has plenty of features, including a built-in re-chargeable battery which, B&O says, will...

Expensive but stylish and capable of gorgeous sound reproduction.

The BeoLit12 sound better than any other portable speaker its size. There is no question. Undoubtedly its this performance (down to 35hz!) that draws the higher price tag.

The sound is fantastic but th wifi capability is poor and the range is limmited. Apart from this the battery performance is poor as well. You can play music for max 4 hours instead of the 8 hours.
