Bang & Olufsen’s Beosound Explore, a tough and robust portable speaker, is now available in SA. Designed for adventure, the speaker is developed to be lightweight, waterproof, have excellent playtime and is the perfect outdoor speaker.
“We created Beosound Explore to be our toughest speaker that can withstand the outdoor elements. The speaker is dust and waterproof, embodied in a scratch-resistant type 2 anodised aluminium surface. The exceptional sound quality for its size makes Beosound Explore the perfect companion for any adventure”, says Bang & Olufsen SVP of product management Christoffer Poulsen.
Designed with portability in mind, the speaker has a cylindrical shell which makes it easy to grip or put in a rucksack pocket. It also features an aluminium carabiner — as well as an integrated strap — so that you can tightly hang the speaker from a rucksack while on long hikes. And thanks to the IP67 dust and waterproof rating, you don’t have to worry about your speaker getting wet and ruining the adventure.
Usually portability means sacrificing audio quality but that’s not the case with the Beosound Explore. It features dual 1.8-inch full range drivers to deliver Bang & Olufsen’s signature sound. The company says that particular attention has been paid to outdoor performance and supreme bass with the speaker about to deliver 59dB in bass capability despite its portable size. The grill is cut in 360-degree lines to ensure that you get True360 omnidirectional sound.
With such impressive features and durability, it may surprise you to find out that the speaker weighs a mere 631g and affords up to 27 hours of playtime at typical listening volumes.
Beosound Explore is available in a Black Anthracite, Green or Grey Mist finish, and the price is R4,599.
