Bang & Olufsen present new Brass Tone colour of its Beosound Edge

B&O Beosound Edge

Bang & Olufsen has introduced a new colourway of its powerful wireless speaker, Beosound Edge.

This new colourway has been inspired by the Art Deco movement of the 1920s when Bang & Olufsen was founded. As a result of this, the new Beosound Edge Brass Tone combines polished brass-toned aluminium and Parisian Night Blue fabric to create a warm ambience in line with leading trends. 

The Beosound Edge’s circular shape allows two placement options; it can be used as a floor-standing centrepiece, amplifying and blending in with the colours of the furniture it’s next to, or it can be placed on the wall as a statement piece dividing spaces in the home. 

The speaker has proximity sensors to detect when someone comes near to it so that it can illuminate its aluminium touch interface. To adjust the volume, users gently roll Beosound Edge forwards and backwards. To change the volume more dramatically, a stronger touch is required. When you let go of the speaker, it rolls back to its original position. 

Beosound Edge comes with AirPlay 2, Chromecast, and Bluetooth for high-quality streaming capabilities. It also supports voice interaction when paired with either a Google Assistant-enabled speaker, such as Beosound 1 and Beosound 2, a Google Assistant device or an Amazon Echo device.

The Beosound Edge carries as RRP of 3,250 EUR and is available online and in Bang & Olufsen stores from today (May 20).
