Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A1 Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Wired review:

“Superb sound. B&O applies some gentle digital signal processing to keep the audio distortion-free as you crank it up, though it succeeds in keeping things crisp at all volumes. Music rarely sounds overly processed.”

PC Mag review:

“The B&O Play Beoplay A1 is a portable Bluetooth speaker with some of the best bass response you’ll find in such a compact size. Excellent audio performance with surprisingly strong bass response. Simple, stylish, rugged design. Long battery life.”

Featured in PCMag’s Best Wireless Speakers of 2018.

What HiFi review:

“While needing to better negotiate its weighty, solid sound with more sparkle and attack, the A1 does stand out in the smorgasbord of quality that is the portable Bluetooth speaker market, with good (and practical) looks, generous battery life and a clear, full-bodied sound.”

Alphr review:

“In all, there’s very little to dislike about the B&O Play Beoplay A1. It’s true that you can’t connect via Apple AirPlay, Spotify Connect or aptX – and I’m going to knock off a star for those shortcomings – but as a speaker to complement your phone or tablet on your travels, it’s perfect.”

CNET review:

“The Beoplay’s strong design, sound and battery life make it a worthy premium mini Bluetooth speaker contender. The dome-shaped, aluminum-clad Beoplay A1 speaker looks sleek, delivers relatively high-quality sound for its very compact size, has excellent battery life and works well as a speakerphone.”
