The light switch for music.

BeoSound Essence is a simple, elegant one-touch music system. An entirely new way to have iconic Bang & Olufsen sound, at your fingertip.

Available in most stores now.

A giant step forward

When we started working on the new BeoSound system, we wanted to create a simple way to enjoy today’s incredible wealth of digital music, without compromising our dedication to the finest audio quality.

Advanced simplicity

Unleashing great sound is now as easy as flicking a light switch. You don’t even need your phone. Simply connect BeoSound Essence to any Bang & Olufsen active speakers and start playing the music where you left off last time with just one touch.

Integrated music services

Explore wireless music with your smartphone, computer or tablet, via AirPlay and DLNA streaming or use BeoSound Essence’s integrated direct access to Spotify Connect, QPlay and internet radio by TuneIn.

Sublime touches

Start your music where you left off last time with a single touch, or adjust the volume when needed with a smooth turn of the aluminium wheel.

In tune

Complete your experience with the new BeoMusic App. An intuitive way to browse the endless music at your fingertips. Switch music with a single touch when you find what you are looking for, regardless of its source.
