GADGETS+TECH BANG & OLUFSEN: THE QUEEN OF GADGETS IF YOU WANT TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR MUSIC BOTH AT HOME AND ON THE MOVE VIA A MULTITUDE OF INNOVATIVE SOURCES, BANG & OLUFSEN HAS A RANGE OF OUTSTANDING PRODUCTS THAT PROMISE YOU THE VERY BEST IN SOUND ALL YEAR ROUND. BeoPlay P2 BeoPlay P2 is a personal bluetooth speaker for the discerning listener – the first thing you’ll notice about the Beoplay P2 speaker is the eye-catching design. When you take the speaker out of the box, you’ll likely notice that it’s missing something most other bluetooth speakers have – controls. In reality, the controls are hidden; the on/off button is located under the logo on the bottom of the speaker, while playback controls are shifted from physical buttons to gesture or voice controls. £149. BeoSound EDGE A new powerful wireless speaker for the home, the BeoSound Edge is a minimalist speaker designed in collaboration between Michael Anastassiades and Bang & Olufsen that’s set to completely change how we live with sound. The circular shape of Beosound Edge allows for two placement options – on the floor as a stunning centerpiece, amplifying and blending in with the colours of the furniture standing next to it, or placed on the wall as a true gravity defying statement that divides spaces in the home. To deliver a rich sound experience at high volume, Beosound Edge debuts a groundbreaking acoustical technology named the Active Bass Port. £2,900. BeoPlay H9i BeoPlay A9 BeoPlay H9i are our most luxurious headphones – H9i combine ANC, bluetooth, an innovative aluminium touch interface and Bang & Olufsen signature sound. H9i have even better sound quality with an improved ANC performance, enhanced call quality and a new bass port which ensures deeper, more powerful bass. Available in black or natural. £449. The BeoPlay A9 has been designed and crafted like a beautiful piece of furniture – with a careful selection of materials and great attention to detail. The days of wanting to hide your bulky black stereo are over. No matter where you choose to place the A9, whether that’s on the floor or on an optional wall bracket, it is going to look beautiful. Base colour and fabric cover are available in various colours. £1,999. BeoPlay E8 BeoPlay E8 are Bang & Olufsen’s best selling premium wireless earphones. Designed to fit snugly and comfortably in your ear, E8 come in a genuine leather charging case so you can recharge them on the go. With up to four hours of playtime in one charge and an additional eight hours from the charging case, you can easily take E8 with you all day – and with transparency mode, you can tune into your surroundings with one quick gesture.
