Haven’t I seen this speaker some­where be­fore?

It’s pos­si­ble, old timer. The Be­olit se­ries first launched 78 years ago, but has been brought bang up to date with the Blue­tooth Be­olit 17 con­nected speaker. Pre­mium fea­tures, in­clud­ing a pearl­blasted alu­minium grill, pre­mium grain leather han­dle and a non-slip tray for your smart­phone, are the brain­child of award-win­ning Dan­ish de­signer Ce­cilie Manz.

It sure looks good, but how does it sound?

The new de­sign has freed up room for 240 watts of eardrum-fondling power in­side the speaker, de­liv­er­ing B&O’s fa­mously lux­u­ri­ous sound but with added mus­cle. Wire­less stereo pair­ing en­ables you to connect two Be­olit 17s, if the mood takes you.

Rad! Where does the tech come in?

The Be­olit’s one-touch connect but­ton can be tailored to your needs via the Beo­play app. Early start? Set an alarm within the app and use the connect but­ton to snooze. Want to hear the last song you played on Spo­tify, or tog­gle be­tween tone pre­sets? The power is yours at the touch of a but­ton.

So I can tweak the sound, too?

Ab­so­lutely. The Beo­play app’s ToneTouch func­tion makes it easy for au­dio­philes to per­son­alise the Be­olit’s sound to suit the space you’re in and the mu­sic you’re play­ing. Found a bang­ing sound for your work­out playlists? Save it as a pre­set for when­ever you train.

Yes! I want one.

Well, it’s not yet on sale in In­dia but we ex­pect it to re­lease it soon.

Whether at home or on the go, the por­ta­ble Be­olit 17 can blast a full day’s worth of mu­sic, pod­casts and more be­fore it needs juic­ing up 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
