Bang & Olufsen has unveiled its latest wireless speaker, the Beosound Level, looks just as stylish as the rest of its opulent audio gear. The speakers come in either a natural oak veneer or a seamless knitted dark grey Kvadrat textile for a sleek look.
The Beosound Level has modular parts, includes swappable covers a user-replaceable battery. Most interestingly, a “streaming module” that could let you update the speaker’s wireless capabilities once they become obsolete.
The splash-proof speaker can be wall-mounted, stood upright or laid flat on a table, automatically adjusting its performance to suit its orientation, and supports Spotify Connect, Chromecast and AirPlay 2 streaming technologies, as well as optional Google Assistant. The optional wall bracket turns the speakers from an ordinary listening device into an objet d-art. It also allows you to charge the speaker whilst still listening to music and easily detach the speaker from the wall when you want the music to move with you. It looks sleek and when they look this nice on your wall, you won’t want to hide them away.
In addition to its design, Bang & Olufsen utilize its high-end electronic know-how for an unmatchable listening experience. Showcasing a collection of two four-inch woofers, one two-inch full range driver, two 0.8-inch tweeters and low distortion amplifiers can muster 79dB of bass and 96dB of mid-range loudness. However, the most interesting components are the ones B&O says will “fight technology obsolescence, enhance resource efficiency and improve longevity.”
Bang & Olufsen’s Beosound Level speaker retails for $1,499 USD
