The Beoplay is designed by Cecilie Manz and considerable care and thought has gone into this classically retro looking speaker. It is 1.7 x 5.6 x 10.1 inches, so whilst it is not the smallest speaker on the market it is a compact easily portable, lightweight (2.4lb) device with the added bonus of leather strap for easy carrying.
The Beoplay comes in 3 stylish colours: Black, Grey and Green and is a tasteful rectangular shape, making it ideal for maintaining its style through time.
Battery Life and Power Source
One of the great things about this speaker is the long, 24 hour battery life. It has a Rechargeable Li ion battery. It can be charged through a standard DC power supply or through USB making it a convenient model to have.
Bluetooth and Setup
The beauty of this speaker it is it simply designed with 3 buttons, power, volume and Bluetooth. It is simple to hold the Bluetooth button down and the Bluetooth 4.0 will connect to your device. Additionally, it remembers up to 8 users making it a great way to listen to music with a group of friends.
Quality of Sound and Experience
A lot of care and thought has gone into the design of this speaker and this shows in the experience you have when listening. The True 360 feature allows you to listen to music from anywhere in your room without having to worry about where you position the speaker or blasting it out so loudly that the sound is distorted.
However, given the price of the Beoplay as you would expect even when the volume it turned to maximum there is no distortion of the sound, it remains crisp and clear. It should be noted though as mentioned in the Cons if you are a big bass fan then this may not be the speaker for you.
Whilst the Bass is clear the sound is more focussed on the high- mid tones. This in actually makes the clarity of sound better for most tracks you want to listen to. This speaker performs to such a high standard it is great for parties, there is no need for large sound systems this will provide the music you want for a great night.
