INTEGRATED MUSIC SERVICES
Spotify, Deezer, QPlay and TuneIn are all integrated, which makes it quick and convenient to access millions of songs and thousands of playlists and radio shows – and you don’t even have to pull out your phone or tablet to start playing.
Because the streaming services are incorporated in BeoSound 2 it has the added benefit of preserving battery life on your mobile device because the speaker streams directly from the cloud. The feature also allows you to keep using your phone, for calls, texts and games, without it interrupting the music.
A CLEAR IDEA OF FUNCTION AND PURPOSE
“Simplicity was paramount,” says Torsten Valeur, the man behind the design of BeoSound 1 and BeoSound 2, “and our dream was to create something that resembled musical instruments. Products where every part conveys its purpose which is to spread beautiful music.”
MORE ABOUT ALUMINIUM
The conic aluminium bodies hover slightly above the ground, letting the thumps of the bass units out beneath. They are slightly open at the top for acoustical reasons, but apart from that you are met with a uniform expression on the surface ¬– so what you experience is solidness and a design that has been reduced with precision. And, when you look closer at the structures of the aluminium you get the sense that this has been made by hand, almost formed like an instrument.
Aluminium is a signature material of ours, and it was not chosen purely from a design perspective; but because a closed aluminium cabinet provides the best acoustic properties thanks to material stiffness, avoidance of dissonance from joints and corners, and the elimination of distortion.
360 DEGREE SOUND PERFECTION
Immerse yourself completely in the 360 degrees of sound. The sound you will experience is spherical, powerfuland precise – no matter where the speaker is placed, and no matter where you are placed.
ACOUSTIC LENS TECHNOLOGY
The ¾ inch tweeter plays downwards into a reflector, and the spherical sound profile is a result of the tweeter placement and the width of the opening between the top and bottom of the speaker.
The Acoustic Lens Technology spreads the high frequencies horizontally around the room, while reducing reflections from the floor and ceiling, so the sound performance remains unchanged – and always ideal.
THE SOUND SPECTRUM
The two 2 inch midrange drivers are placed back-to-back beneath the intricate grill system, providing you with a larger sound spectrum and even more details to your music.
The 5 ¼ inch bass driver is placed upside down in order to utilise the full capacity of the cabinet – and to provide a sound that spreads evenly across the room.
Adaptive Bass Linearisation harnesses surplus capacity in the amplifiers and driver units to bring you even more bass, while also monitoring and adjusting for excessive peaks in the sound.
PLACE IT ANYWHERE.
The conical shape gives you countlessof placement options. The actual footprint of the speaker is minimal, which allows you to put it wherever you need your sound to be.
Unplug it once in a while, and move it around your home as you see fit.
A FAMILY OF FLEXIBILITY AND FINESSE.
A set of speakers designed for convenience, crafted for mobility and featuring an impressive 360 degrees of spherical sound magic. Integrated access to your favourite streaming services, and fast and easy connectivity through Chromecast built-in, Bluetooth, AirPlay andDLNA.
