peuvent ne pas supporter vos appareils, son moins bon au volume maximum.

Hands On: Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 8

 

iPad speaker system that makes an artistic statement.

Unique design ; Instantly compatible with multiple iDevices ; Flexible placement ; Free internet radio app

iPad placement leaves it exposed to bumping

Bang and Olufsen BeoSound 8 review

 

For anyone that appreciates design, this is a coupling that makes the pulse race. B&O's achingly stylish products share an aesthetic with Apple's own gear, so it's fitting that they are together at last in this sophisticated-looking sound system.

Exquisite build quality ; A design classic in the making ; Excellent sound dispersion

No Bluetooth or Airplay connec ; Outrageous price tag

Can any iPod speaker dock ever be worth £895? Actually yes, if the remarkable new BeoSound 8 is anything to go by.

B&O BeoSound 8 Review

 

The price might be steep, but the looks and sound justify the coinage

If you already own some Bang & Olufsen kit, chances are that you live in a Le Corbusier-designed house on stilts and swim in a pool filled with £50 notes. And if you don’t, you might think its pro

B&O BeoSound 8

 

The price might seems steep, but the performance does well to justify the cost

Relishes big volumes; bold and unified sound; unique looks

Sounds less engaged at more restrained levels; not cheap

Expert review by:

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 8

 

If you're looking for a top-of-the-line iPod dock that not only supports iPads but looks and sounds amazing, Bang and Olufsen's BeoSound 8 is what you should get.

Supports iPads ; Distinctive design ; Crisp, clean sound ; USB PC support

Sound hardens at volume ; May not support your device

At AU$1500, the BeoSound is one of the most expensive iPod docks we've seen, but feel that people who are drawn to the distinctive design won't be disappointed by the sparkling sound on offer.

B&O BeoSound 8

 

Bang & Olufsen today launched its first speaker dock for iPods, iPhones and iPads, filling a hole in its lineup of premium AV products.

Beautiful sound, design and build quality; very reasonable price for a B&O product

None – it’s gorgeous

Bottom line? A one-night stand with the BeoSound 8 is nowhere near enough.

Wow!

 

Great sound with my IPad. Deep bass. Best on the market but a little pricy

Easy To Transport, Great Sound

Consumer review by:

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 8

 

It is a work of art this dock. Unfortunately what they advertise as "wireless stream" from your computer to the dock is just an RCA input at the back which you must connect to an airport express unit to get this wireless playback. Not so "wireless" as...

Sound Quality, Built Quality

At low volume, Bass is too strong and needs airport express for "wireless" stream
