BEOSOUND ESSENCE

LIKE TURNING ON THE LIGHTS

Control your music in the simplest way imaginable.

BeoSound Essence

A one-touch music control to hang on your wall or place wherever you need it.
Features
Just touch BeoSound Essence and start your favourite music sources. The control elements are reduced to the bare essentials. You can start your music, stop your music, skip tracks, change source and adjust the volume. That’s all you need.

A CLOSER LOOK

BeoSound Essence consists of two separate components: A circular remote control available in two versions: for hanging on the wall or placing wherever you need it in the room, and a discreet hideaway box. The few control elements on the remote are intuitively accessible, bringing simplicity back into your music.
