The definition of great design is something that both looks beautiful and performs with excellence. That would also be a fair description of Bang & Olufsen’s BeoSound 2. This new wireless speaker combines the form of modern architecture with remarkable 360-degree sound quality.

– Distinctive design spreads sound throughout the room

– Streams music directly from Spotify, Deezer, TuneIn, and more

– Also supports Bluetooth, AirPlay, Google Cast, and DLNA

That new wireless speaker sound

Different gadgets come with different levels of unboxing excitement. The latest iPhone might be about 6/10, while a new laptop is a solid 8/10.

On this scale, the BeoSound 2 from Bang & Olufsen is the full 10/10. For starters, the design is stunning. The unique conical shape and metallic finish give this speaker a modern feel. You could say that it’s the center of attention for all the right reasons.

In addition, the conical design allows sound to spread in all directions. With one tweeter, two mid-range drivers and a woofer, you get remarkable richness from a 7.7-inch footprint. The kick will satisfy bass nerds, while the upper range reproduces string sections with perfect clarity. The power is also something to behold; it may just cause goosebumps.

Along with Bluetooth, the BeoSound offers a wealth of connectivity options. You can stream music directly from Spotify, Deezer and QQ, or use TuneIn to enjoy your favorite radio stations. The speaker also works perfectly with Apple AirPlay, Google Cast and DLNA. Each connection is surprisingly easy to set up, and the speaker syncs with other Bang & Olufsen products.

You can control the BeoSound via the free BeoMusic app on your smartphone. Alternatively, the “roof” of the conical structure acts a bit like the scroll wheel on the old iPod Classic. You simply turn, swipe and tap this touch-sensitive surface to adjust the volume and switch tracks. It means you can actually switch your phone off for once and relax.
