You know that Bluetooth audio has come a long way when serious audio manufacturers like Bang & Olufsen decides to launch their first ever bluetooth speaker in the BeoPlay A2 – a stylish and portable speaker true to their Danish heritage.

Bang & Olufsen’s BeoPlay A2 has been designed by Cecilie Manz and is going after perhaps the hottest mobile accessory category at the moment; the portable bluetooth speaker market. As always with B&O we are talking about the high end of the market, as this is not your run of the mill black hard plastic speaker you can buy at your local supermarket. This is still Danish audio design and manufacturing at its best, always stylish, and highly desirable. This is reflected in both the modern color options of black, grey/rose gold or green, and the use of tanned leather for the carry handle.

The BeoPlay A2 is designed for life on the go, it has no back or front part so to speak, a slim and versatile profile, and comes with a rechargeable battery promising 24-hours playtime between charges, which is more than any other portable wireless speaker I have come across to date. Throw into the mix the B&O True360 omni-directional sound solution and an impressive 180W power output, this speaker could be the new standard in portable bluetooth. Weighting in at 1.1kg and measuring 256 x 142 x 44 mm, this is not however a small, throw in the bag, bluetooth speaker.
