B&O BeoPlay A2 review

 

Not perfect, but the A2's spacious sound, battery life and looks are appealing

Clean, open sound Goes loud Plenty of detail Precise timing Stylish Battery life

A persistent hard edge Rivals offer a subtler, more fluid sound

The B&O A2 comes off as a touch clinical and soulless, but there’s plenty to admire about its detailed, spacious sound and clean presentation. Its stylish design is appealing, as is the lengthy 24-hour battery life. It may not be class leading, but the...

B&O BeoPlay A2 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Bang & Olufsen products generally look and feel great, and the portable BeoPlay A2 Bluetooth speaker is no different. It's small enough to carry around comfortably and comes with a luxurious leather strap for convenience. But with a premium price tag,...

Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A2

 

If you've got the money to spend, the Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A2 is a great-looking portable Bluetooth speaker that delivers sound quality and battery life that won't disappoint.

Clear, powerful performance. Does not distort on deep bass tracks. Attractive design. Drivers on each side make for a larger field of sound. Long battery life.

Expensive. Not for big bass lovers.

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with a lot of challenging deep bass content, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the BeoPlay A2 doesn't distort at all even at maximum volumes, which you would hope for at this price point. Unlike the boosted bass on...

Review: B&O Play BeoPlay A2

 

It's nice to see the premium electronics brands beginning to embrace trends, and now that we're seeing a few top tier audio entities take a look at portable wireless speakers, it's time for Bang & Olufsen to have a play.

Clear sound; Can charge gadgets off its USB port; Comes with a carrying strap; It’s a good looking portable speaker; Auxiliary 3.5mm input; Bright sound; Fair amount of bass; Loads of volume;

Mids need work; Doesn’t charge from microUSB; No NFC; No case included in the box, just the built-in carrying strap; Only one charge connector;

Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay A2 Bluetooth speaker review

 

Bang & Olufsen has entered the Bluetooth speaker market but in typical style, the company has put its own unique design spin on it to make it stand out from the crowd.

Consumer review (johnlewis.com)

Poor battery life

 

Had mine around a month and I'm so disappointed that it only lasts less than 2 hours on a full charge and that's at less than 50% volume. Excellent sound quality but not sure where the 24 hour battery life that is stated comes from. Not what I expected...

Poor battery life

 

Had this product for 6 months now and can only advise everyone to save their money and avoid this product! Such a shame because the sound quality is amazing but the battery life is rubbish! I'm only getting about an hour of use far less than the 24...

Superb sounding speaker

 

The A2 Active is a superb speaker, it's a very large speaker to say the least! I was surprised at the size of it, also by the weight, even though it's primarily plastic on the grills, there's a lovely weighty feel to it, very solidly built. Soundwise,...
