B&O Play BeoPlay A1 Portable Bluetooth Speaker ( Moss Green)

 

Designed by well-known Danish furniture designer Cecile Manz , the aluminum-clad A1 is clearly meant to take on Bose's popular SoundLink Mini II wireless speaker, and it's one of the best-sounding mini Bluetooth speakers I've heard, though it better be...

The dome-shaped, aluminum-clad Beoplay A1 speaker looks sleek, delivers relatively high-quality sound for its very compact size, has excellent battery life and works well as a speakerphone. A leather carrying strap allows you to hang the speaker from a...

It's fairly pricey and heats up a little when played at high volumes for long periods. Also, no protective carrying pouch or case is included.

The Beoplay's strong design, sound and battery life make it a worthy premium mini Bluetooth speaker contender.

B&O BeoPlay A1 review

 

A detailed and solid-sounding wireless speaker that brings the luxury of B&O into a budget price bracket...

Solid, weighty sound ; Decent bass ; Tonally balanced ; Gorgeous design ; Can pair with another A1 ; Generous battery life

Sound lacks sparkle and rhythm

It’s not the most thrilling sound, but the BeoPlay A1 is a solid and detailed performer that brings luxury performance into a lower price bracket

B&O BeoPlay A1 review

  (Rating Hidden)

B&O's robust BeoPlay A1 portable Bluetooth speaker is well equipped for outdoor activities and adventures, but the hefty price tag may put some potential buyers off. We sent the mini BeoPlay A1 off to the test lab to see if it's worth getting excited...

Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A1

 

At R5 000, the BeoPlay A1 from Bang & Olufsen is pricey for a portable speaker. Its premium design and acoustic range, however, makes it difficult to match.

Solidly constructed; Good audio range; Highly portable

Price can be hurdle for some; Controls faintly printed on speaker

Yes, R5 000 is fair bit to paying for a portable speaker, but the A1 is well designed, delivers good sound and proves itself an all-rounder in a number of scenarios. For consumers that want a compact portable speaker that has well balanced mixed of...
