This Bluetooth Speaker is Smart Home, Water Resistant, with 360 degree Sound | Instant News

Because locking restrictions gradually relax, people expect to go out.

Finding the perfect Bluetooth speaker that works well inside and outside the room is quite a task, but it is possible.

TechRadar recently registered the best Bluetooth speakers for 2020, including Bose, Sony, Sonos, and JBL. However, there is one promising speaker who claims to answer indoor-outdoor needs, even though it is not on the list.

Bang & Olufsen claims to provide customers with complete speakers, who can work well inside and outside the home.

Classis New Design with Alexa Features

The second generation Beosound A1 initially claimed “the world’s first Bluetooth speaker with a fully integrated Alexa.” While other portable speakers like UE Megablast can connect with Alexa via Wi-Fi, Beosound A1 only relies on Bluetooth to do this. This means that as long as you have data, you don’t need a Wi-Fi connection to access Alexa intelligence to control your home device.

The speaker button has been redesigned and moved closer to the strap to make it easier to reach and use. The button displays a larger and clearer symbol, while the LED indicator has been moved above the speaker to make it easier to see from different angles.

While maintaining a slick grip, Bluetooth speaker shaped chip has been given a redesign with the default Alexa. According to the company, its slimmer shape is “completely dust and waterproof.”

Beosound A1 is IP67 certified, which means “the waterproof speaker enters to a depth of 1m for 30 minutes, and is safe from sand and dirt so users can enjoy music outside by the pool and on the beach,” Bang & Olufsen said.

One of the best things is that battery life reaches 18 hours, so this can be a perfect companion when traveling, whether camping or going to the beach.

360 degree sound

The speaker is well built. Amazing smart features. How about the sound? First, Bang & Olufsen offers the new Beosound A1 to deliver 360 degree audio with two 30W Class D amplifiers to run woofers and tweeters.

The main body is made of a 3.5-inch cone aluminum mid-woofer with a neodymium magnetic system. At the same time, the treble tip is sent via an inch-driven silk dome tweeter driven by advanced DSP filtering with two 30-watt Class D amplifiers.

To make audio deeper, pair two second A1s genes for stereo sound while using the Bang & Olufsen app to have an equalizer preset that can be adjusted to personalize the sound.

Meanwhile, the brand also promised to give good voice calls. Three microphones and speaker support for Microsoft Swift Pair and Google Fast Pair allow quick settings when using speakers for business conference calls.

The new A1 Beosound will be available today and will cost $ 250 or £ 200. Australian clients need to wait a while because the official Australian price has not been announced, although currency conversions say around $ 380 AU or $ 245.14 USD.
