Bang & Olufsen introduces its most powerful portable speaker – the Beosound A5
Renowned audio house Bang & Olufsen has launched its most powerful portable offering yet, the Beosound A5. Designed in collaboration with the Danish-Italian design duo GamFratesi, the Beosound A5 is aimed to bridge northern and southern design cultures with an immersive sound experience by drawing design inspiration from the iconic Beolit series and the traditional Panama straw hats worn on beaches. Its available in two colourways – natural aluminium with a woven paper fibre front with a light oak handle and a black anthracite aluminium version paired with a dark oak wood speaker cover and handle. The new speaker boasts an IP65 water and dustproof rating, more than 12 hours of playtime and a wireless phone charger integrated into the top panel. The tag for the most powerful portable speaker of the brand comes courtesy of a four-way driver setup with four digital amplifiers providing a combined 280 watts of power and integrating the sound technology from Bang & Olufsen’s class-leading Beolab 90 and 50 hi-fi speakers.
