WHAT: A portable Bluetooth speaker that stands out from the rest
WHY: Another cutting-edge design from B&O
In a saturated mobile Bluetooth speaker market, it takes a forward-thinking company like Bang & Olufsen to make a truly standout product. The B&O BeoPlay A2 ($399) boasts eye-catching styling, sleek, solid build quality, and, most important, a sonic signature that is deserving of the B&O name. The high sound quality results from six speaker drivers strategically placed on both sides of the device. The leather strap makes it truly portable, and a 24-hour battery life is ample time for anyone with an active lifestyle. If you like the styling, an optional cross-body leather strap is available to keep the A2 close at hand.
