Grab & Go
Seasons come and go, so there’s little reason why you should only stick to classic colours, even when it comes to pairing your audio gadgets with your wardrobe. Bang & Olufsen has sniffed this trend out with its latest seasonal releases. We’ve picked four of its portable audio products in delicious summery shades to cater to each traveller.
For the beachcomber – Beoplay A2 Active
If you were holding out on getting the original Beoplay A2 Bluetooth sound bar because it wasn’t resistant to the elements (specifically, dust and water), and have an aversion to non-USB charging ports, there’s sweet relief in the form of the Beoplay A2 Active. Thankfully, all the great things about the Beoplay A2 are retained in the Beoplay A2 Active, including lush audio quality, 24-hour battery life and the ability to host up to eight ‘DJs’ on the same device. Now available with a new colour option, Charcoal Sand, the Beoplay A2 Active looks dapper with a sand-coloured strap, burnished gold body and dark grey speaker covers.
For the aesthete – Beoplay A1
The biggest problem with portable Bluetooth speakers is, well, they look like portable Bluetooth speakers. The Beoplay A1, on the other hand, looks like a hockey puck from the 31st century – one that will play your tunes, for a full day continuously. Conveniently enough, the Beoplay A1 also has a built-in microphone, so you can pair it with your smartphone to make calls. What’s new with the Beoplay A1 this season is the addition of three new colours (Tangerine Red, Sand Stone, Charcoal Sand) to bolster the four already on offer.
For the fashionista – Beoplay H4
The Beoplay H4 elevates headphones to new, savvy heights with its brushed metal accents, plus matching earcups and headband. These headphones will allow you to make and receive calls, so there’s no fumbling to take them off when a call comes in. With wireless technology here to stay, there’s no chance you’ll get tangled with cables, key to maintaining an ice-cool glamorous image. Even better is how it’s available in three fetching hues: Tangerine Grey, Sand Grey, and Charcoal Grey.
For the light packer – Beoplay H5
For those who are always on the go – whether it’s to your next meeting or when you’re working out – we understand that the key to efficiency is packing light. Whatever the case may be, the Beoplay H5 has got your back, or more accurately, your ears. A snug fit is ensured through a whole host of included eartips and smart features like magnetic earpieces (that automatically powers the Beoplay H5 down when together) makes the Beoplay H5 great for the eternally on-the-move urbanite. Premium materials and rock-solid build quality are a given, of course, along with availability in four colours (including a cheeky pink shade).
