Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A2

 

If you've got the money to spend, the Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A2 is a great-looking portable Bluetooth speaker that delivers sound quality and battery life that won't disappoint.

Clear, powerful performance. Does not distort on deep bass tracks. Attractive design. Drivers on each side make for a larger field of sound. Long battery life.

Expensive. Not for big bass lovers.

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with a lot of challenging deep bass content, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the BeoPlay A2 doesn't distort at all even at maximum volumes, which you would hope for at this price point. Unlike the boosted bass on...

B&O BeoPlay A2 review

 

Not perfect, but the A2's spacious sound, battery life and looks are appealing

Clean, open sound Goes loud Plenty of detail Precise timing Stylish Battery life

A persistent hard edge Rivals offer a subtler, more fluid sound

The B&O A2 comes off as a touch clinical and soulless, but there’s plenty to admire about its detailed, spacious sound and clean presentation. Its stylish design is appealing, as is the lengthy 24-hour battery life. It may not be class leading, but the...

B&O BeoPlay A2 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Bang & Olufsen products generally look and feel great, and the portable BeoPlay A2 Bluetooth speaker is no different. It's small enough to carry around comfortably and comes with a luxurious leather strap for convenience. But with a premium price tag,...

Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A2

 

It might be the middle child, but the BeoPlay A2 should not be glossed over as it too delivers a solid mix of sound and build quality.

Well constructed and sturdy design; Solid sound quality; Great battery life

A little expensive; Not sold on leather strap

R7 600 for a portable speaker is a lot of money to be shelling out. Given the prices seen on other products in the BeoPlay range, it doesn’t come as a surprise. Being part of this Bang & Olufsen lineup also means there are no surprises in the sound and...

PERFECT PORTABLE SOUND

 

I love this portable speaker. It does seem to loose bluetooth connection (4 stars) when there is a lag, as with streaming radio, or changing stations. Wish it was able to be recharged by USB, because now I must carry another "brick" to recharge it.

Fantastic sound and design!

 

Brilliant sound, without being so bass heavy and overdone. Love the handle for carrying around. Love the slim design as it fits in my briefcase so easily, like a book. Would buy again in a heartbeat.
