A brand new sound

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News


Beoplay A1 

I’m in love with Beoplay A1

I’m always impressed with B&O products. The sound, the quality and the overall experience are something that are irreplaceable. Did you know that Brunei has a physical Bang & Olufsen store and it’s located at Kiarong.

Last evening, B&O Brunei officially launched the latest speakers, the Beoplay A1 and it’s the smallest speakers to date from the B&O Play. Designed for life on the go by award-winning designer Cecilie Manz, it fits comfortably in the palm of your hand and packs a punch well beyond its size. Yes, from the demo last night, the A1 packs a punch indeed.

I congratulate Howard Leong, General Manager of Sejalin Enterprise, and his team on the introduction of the Beoplay A1 and also the B35 speakers. I truly love the B&O showroom and it’s something I want my work station to be like one day. Enough about that. Let’s focus more on the Beoplay A1 speakers.

I love them, A1 😀 It can act as a speakerphone for taking calls out loud and up to 24 hours of battery life (awesome) and you can show off to others who used other brands in terms of battery life performance.

So Ewa, are you getting one?

Passing around the Beoplay A1 for the invited guests to feel the quality of the A1 speakers

I wonder if Stuart will purchase one after the 30th of May :p

The Beoplay A1 is dome shaped and is akin to an oversized hockey puck with its 132mm diameter. The top of the A1 is covered in a perforated, thick layer of aluminium which certainly contributes to its premium and elegant look. Meeting the aluminium roughly half way down the body is a base made of rubber material that houses all the control buttons. The soft-push controls provide some tactile feedback.

The circle button, for now, is used to reconnect to your last playback device and start playing music. As a contrast to the hard industrial design, B&O throws in a full-grain leather strap.

The A1 can be used for business and pleasure – you can take calls and it also has a microphone to provide uniform 360 speech sensitivity. Now that’s amazing. It might be ideal for my podcasting.

In conclusion, you will definitely be seduced by the sound and its sleek design. I’ve always trust in B&O products and I would highly recommend the Beoplay A1 speakers whether be it indoor and outdoor. For a price of BND 399, this is a great buy. Pre-orders can be made at B&O showroom (follow them on Facebook Page) and the stock will be available in two weeks’ time. I’m still thinking if I should invest in one. My conscience is siding more owning one. We shall wait and see.
