Bang and Olufsen‘s latest product is just amazing. The company designed a wireless speaker named Beosound Emerge. The exquisite audio product is based on the book’s form factor. The product is built with premium materials that reflect its price too.
Benjamin Hubert of the London-based Agency LAYER designed this book-like speaker. The company aims to “create the slimmest speaker possible” without sacrificing sound. The front side of the speaker comprises a thin erratic part that enlarges in the back. It features B&O’s logo and two side panels.
Beosound Emerge will be available in black and gold colors. And the device looks elegant in golden. The golden design features light oak side panels, woven Kvadrat textile, and an aluminum base. While the black design has polymer side panels, an aluminum front grill, and a base.
The top surface of the speaker contains lavish buttons that enable users to change volume, skip or pause the songs, and check the Bluetooth and microphone LED indicators.
Moreover, the wireless speaker backs Spotify Connect, Google Assistant, and multiroom techs like Google’s Chromecast and Apple AirPlay2. It has a broad set of connection options such as Bluetooth 5.0, a line-in/optical jack, Wi-Fi, and an Ethernet port. It also features a USB-C port and a micro USB service port.
Turing to Beosound Emerge’s specs. It has a 4-inch woofer driver (60W), a 0.6-inch tweeter (30W), a 1.4-cinch mid-range driver (30W), and a 45-22,000 Hz frequency range.
Like B&O’s Beoplay portal, this product is expected to be more expensive as compared to rivals. The black and gold models will cost $699 and $899 respectively. Beosound Emerge will be launch globally in the fall.
