“Simplicity was paramount,” says Torsten Valeur, the man behind the design of BeoSound 1 and BeoSound 2, “and our dream was to create something that resembled musical instruments. Products where every part conveys its purpose which is to spread beautiful music.”

The conic aluminium bodies hover slightly above the ground, letting the thumps of the bass units out beneath. They are slightly open at the top for acoustical reasons, but apart from that you are met with a uniform expression on the surface - so what you experience is solidness and a design that has been reduced with precision. And, when you look closer at the structures of the aluminium you get the sense that this has been made by hand, almost formed like an instrument.

Aluminium is a signature material of ours, and it was not chosen purely from a design perspective; but because a closed aluminium cabinet provides the best acoustic properties thanks to material stiffness, avoidance of dissonance from joints and corners, and the elimination of distortion.

BeoSound 1 Piano Black has been crafted to perfection. Polished, anodized and then polished some more – there is no limit to the meticulous attention paid to the finish of the speaker’s sturdy aluminium body. A process resulting in a mesmerizing reflective surface in pure black, that draws the eye to its geometrical design and converging silhouette.

BeoSound 1 features sophisticated 360-degree sound dispersion. An advanced simulation tool was used during development, to ensure perfect audio distribution across the speaker while also factoring in the exterior of the speaker – and using that information created the perfect soundscape.

So no matter where you are seated you will experience great sound.

Thanks to our Acoustic Lens Technology you will experience an almost spherical sound that is surprisingly loud yet extremely nuanced, so you get to enjoy all the beautiful details your music has to offer. 
The custom-built 1 ½ inch full range driver plays downwards into a reflector. It is a combination of sound direction and speaker construction that results in the spherical sound profile - and the uniform timbre experienced in all directions. 

The 4 inch bass driver is placed at the bottom of the speaker. It is placed upside down which allows us to utilise the entire capacity of the cabinet and use a relatively large driver – and because it plays downwards it provides a bass experience that spreads evenly across the room.

The bass is powered by a 40 watts amplifier and the upper frequencies are supported by a 20 watts amplifier.

Designed for convenience
BeoSound 1 is a portable wireless speaker system that fits wherever you want your music; on the shelf, casually on the floor, by the coffee table…or even outdoors. Its unobtrusive and casual design lets it blend into any interior with a subtle touch of delicacy and ease.    

Thanks to the sturdy aluminium body and built-in power source your BeoSound 1 speaker is perfect for a flexible lifestyle where the beauty of the music goes with you; between rooms in your home or for that special occasion outside.

BeoSound 1 plays along with all of the preferred wireless technologies. With Chromecast built-in, Bluetooth, AirPlay, Spotify Connect or DLNA we have you more than covered. 

Connection and setup are both easy and fast.

Play directly from your favourite music apps via Bluetooth or WIFI or get the full Bang & Olufsen experience through the Bang & Olufsen app
Spotify, Deezer, QPlay and TuneIn are all integrated, which makes it quick and convenient to access millions of songs and thousands of playlists and radio shows – and you don’t even have to pull out your phone or tablet to start playing. 

Because the streaming services are incorporated in BeoSound 1 it has the added benefit of preserving battery life on your mobile device because the speaker streams directly from the cloud. The feature also allows you to keep using your phone, for calls, texts and games, without it interrupting the music.
With the Multiroom technology you can connect your Bang & Olufsen and B&O PLAY products in one seamless wireless system. With a simple tap on top of BeoSound 1 you automatically start or join the music experience. 

You can either play different music in different rooms or let the same sound flow throughout your home. You can even use your Bang & Olufsen TV in the setup – sending the sound of the TV to other rooms or use the TVs speaker to listen to music.
The essence of control

BeoSound 1 has a built-in proximity sensor, which means that when approached, it detects your presence and gets itself ready for your command. The proximity sensor calculates and applies instantly, so the user interface is automatically turned towards you.

The top of the speaker functions as a minimalistic control panel; you simply turn it like a wheel to adjust the volume, and swipe and tap on top of it to control everything else.

A set of speakers designed for convenience, crafted for mobility and featuring an impressive 360 degrees of spherical sound magic. Integrated access to your favourite streaming services, and fast and easy connectivity through Chromecast built-in, Bluetooth, AirPlay and DLNA.
