Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A1

Long at the forefront of creating audiophile pleasure centers, Bang & Olufsen, those Danish sound masters, continue to produce exceptional quality speakers and headsets which are always complimented with Scandinavian design notes.

Beautiful objects making beautiful noise. At Cellucity we are going to be stocking a select range of headsets and speakers from B&O at our premium outlets around the country. The Beoplay A1 is the smallest of their portable speakers and weighing only 600g is perfect for your packback or beach bag.

With an aluminum speaker grill and a warm polymer base, the simple design is very desirable, and works well being played lying flat or hanging from it’s bespoke leather strap, thanks to it’s ambient True 360 sound.

The A1 is at the top end of the premium portable speaker market, and in our opinion outperforms the Beats Pill, and is the top contender against the Bose Soundlink (2&3) range. Providing a much fuller sound and minimal distortion at higher volume and base levels than your average portable speaker, the A1 sets the bench high, thanks to it’s 2 X 140W Peak Power and 2 X 30W Class D Woofer.

It is a greater speaker, and it can also double up as a handsfree for calls and being splash and dust resistant, ideal for everyday use and with a battery life of upto 24 hours is perfect for those long lazy summer days, or crisp evening’s at AfrikaBurn.

At R5,099 it is probably one of the most expensive portable speakers on the market, but well worth the price to put a soundtrack to your life, wherever you go.
