Bang & Olufsen’s tiny new Bluetooth speaker boasts a 24 hour battery
High-end audio manufacturer Bang & Olufsen has unveiled the BeoPlay A1, a new entry-level Bluetooth speaker said to fit in the palm of one's hand. Despite its small stature, B&O says the BeoPlay A1 will provide a full 24 hours of music playback.
For comparison, the similar sized UE Roll only lasts for nine hours. The UE Roll is however one third the price, and water resistant.
Corporate VP of B&O Play Henrik Taudorf Lorensen describes the BeoPlay A1 as a speaker that's ideal for both home and "on the go".
"With the BeoPlay A1 we have pushed the boundaries of the ultra-portable speaker category and empowered people to take powerful sound and beautiful design anywhere they choose," said Lorensen.
