BANG & OLUFSEN BEOPLAY A1
This palm-sized beauty punches way, way above its weight in the audio department.
The mids and highs are crisp and clean, and the bass isn’t sacrificed (although if you’re used to the muddy bass from Beats, this speaker might not be up your alley). The most impressive aspect of this Bluetooth speaker is how easily the music fills up a cavernous room without any hint of distortion. The late David Lewis (who designed many of its iconic products) might have questioned the doorknob-friendly leather handle, but we can’t deny its practicality.
