Bang & Olufsen Beosound Balance Speaker

Whenever the guys at Bang & Olufsen have a new piece of audio apparatus on the market, we’re inevitably going to sit up and take notice here at Coolector HQ and this is even more the case when said apparatus is as awesome looking and top performing as the Beosound Balance Speaker. This exemplary bit of kit from Bang & Olufsen is a wireless speaker with a dynamic acoustic performance which has been designed to be positioned up against the wall on a shelf or side table in your home.

Delivering thoroughly impressive sound compared to its size, the Bang & Olufsen Beosound Balance Speaker comes with a price tag of £1750 and comes in two different colourways – namely, Natural Oak and Black Oak – which you can choose to best fit in with the interior design aesthetic of your home. The simplicity of the design, which is rooted in Scandinavian minimalism, contrasts strongly with its raw, high-performing sound that will have all your favourite tunes sounding their very best.

High End Design

As always with Bang & Olufsen products, the Beosound Balance Speaker excels from a visual perspective and boasts a luxurious design in an interior object form. They have collaborated on the design with Benjamin Hubert of Layer Design, a creative studio from London which is highly specialised not only in design but also in creating unique user interfaces. This fantastic speaker delivers carefully controlled beams of sound for a clear acoustic experience from the front and rich sound enhancement at the back.

The Bang & Olufsen Beosound Balance Speaker (£1750) has a beautiful design which actually interacts with you. It has a tactile user-interaction experience and light-through-aluminium for an understated look and a touch of magic with proximity sensors built-in to welcome you when you approach Beosound Balance for interaction – which means that the controls only appear when needed. When you walk away from Besound Balance, the controls dim once more leaving only the well-crafted aluminium surface visible.

Available with Google Assistant which means that you can effortlessly enjoy music at home just with your voice. You can play your favourite music, control volume and find information about the song that you are listening to – all hands-free. You can also plan your day, set alarms and control smart devices around your home – just by using your voice. A wonderfully versatile speaker that will deliver compelling performance whilst enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your interior design endeavours.

Different Sound Experiences for Different Needs

With its innovative acoustic configuration of seven drivers, the first class Beosound Balance from Bang & Olufsen is made to deliver a strong bass performance and a broad sound image for truly room filling sound when you want it. The capacity to deliver beam forming technology also enables the Beosound Balance Speaker to provide sound directivity for focused listening from all positions – all in one package.

It is is equipped with Active Room Compensation capabilities which optimise sound experience based upon the positioning of the speaker in the room, in practice by actively adapting the speaker tuning to compensate for acoustic surroundings. The acoustic set up of the speaker includes two 5.25” bass drivers for powerful bass performance, two 2” full range drivers and one 3/4 tweeter placed in the front for a clear, defined sound reproduction and finally two 3” full range drivers placed in the back that act as sound enhancers.
