Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 2 review

 

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 2 Bang & Olufsen, the Scandinavian electronics company best known for its exquisitely designed--and expensively priced--audio and video equipment, has unleashed its first portable audio device on the world: the BeoSound 2. The...

Sounds awesome ; modern spaceshiplike design will appeal to some; included earbuds sound great and are comfortable.

Extremely expensive; horribly confusing user interface; cannot play DRM-protected WMAs; no LCD; no features of any kind; no internal memory.

The BeoSound 2 sounds absolutely superb, but there's nothing else to justify its sky-high price tag.

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 2 review: Dalek-shaped delight

 

A 360-degree speaker that's determined to exterminate boredom in your home

Lush, room-filling sound ; Exquisite aluminum craftsmanship ; Adaptable to a wide range of uses and positions

Much pricier than most of its competition ; Some sound fidelity sacrificed in the name of fun ; The Dalek jokes will never end

We can joke about its robot invader appearance and we can poke fun at its $1,995 price (because, come on, who’s paying that much for a wireless speaker?), but we shouldn’t dismiss the BeoSound 2 as a bad product. Bang & Olufsen could have given us some...

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound2

 

It's a music player meant for those fixated more on style than features, though portable audiophiles will appreciate its sonic delivery.

Stylish design ; Clean audio

Major lack of features ; Indifferent transfer time

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 2

 

This exorbitantly priced MP3 player should do more than just sound fantastic.

Sounds ; ; modern spaceshiplike design will appeal to some; included earbuds sound great and are comfortable.

Extremely expensive; horribly confusing user interface; cannot play DRM-protected WMAs; no LCD; no features of any kind; no internal memory.

The BeoSound 2 sounds absolutely superb, but there's nothing else to justify its sky-high price tag.

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound2

 

Wow. The 'brand name' of this product is the selling point. The 'sound quality' is due to the earphones that normal people aren't used to hearing. A decent $100 earbud is what sounds good, and it only costs $100.

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound2

 

typically UGLY B&o design-everything they make looks like a Playboy article from the 60's - high-style for hicks from the sticks

Consumer review (cnet.com.au)

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound2

 

.mp3 compression compromises the quality of digital recordings that no amount of 'sonic delivery' can bring back.

maybe some idiot would compliment you because hes stupid

It's like a gold screwdriver, at the end of the day it drives screws just like it's cheaper brethren
