Bang & Olufsen Beosound Balance is a posh smart-speaker
Bang & Olufsen has unveiled its new Balance smart-speaker, which pairs premium design with a whopper of a price tag.
The new Beosound Balance costs US$2,250 (but obviously, if you want a stereo experience you’re going to have to shell out for two).
The Beosound Balance is the first collaboration between B&O and designer Benjamin Hubert. The round speaker is covered in solid oak, with a knitted textile. According to the brand, it was designed to ‘blend in with any décor’.
Each speaker features the ability to work omnidirectionally or point-to-point (which lets you string a couple of them to work together). It comes with B&O’s ‘Active Room Compensation’ tech, which means the speaker will automatically optimise its sound depending on where the speaker is in the room.
The new speaker is available right now, in either black oak or natural oak versions.
