Connected speakers FAQ
Make sure your phone is connected to the Wi-Fi network where your speakers are installed. Connect the speakers to power and wait for one minute. The speakers are now ready for setup. 1. Download the Bang & Olufsen App and create a profile. 2. Add your speakers one at a time in the app by using the Add button. After a speaker is added, it will be detected automatically. 3. Connect your speakers to the Wi-Fi network by following the instructions in the app. 4. If you are an Android user, you can add your speakers in the Google Home app. You will be able to configure your new group of speakers by going to "Media" and "Create group". 5. Now you can start streaming music with your favourite apps, simply selecting two or more speakers (or a pre-configured group of speakers) of your choice.
To stream music, use your favourite streaming app from your phone or tablet while connected to your Wi-Fi network. Depending on your product, you have three streaming options:
- Beolink multiroom: requires the Bang & Olufsen app.
- AirPlay: you can activate it by selecting the AirPlay symbol on your phone or streaming app.
- Chromecast: you can activate it by selecting the Chromecast symbol on your phone or streaming app (requires the Google Home App).
To adjust your speaker's sound modes, start the Bang & Olufsen App and select your speaker. In the listening modes section, go to the Beosonic equalizer and move the circle to the audio settings you prefer: warm, bright, relaxed or energetic. You can save the settings as personal listening modes for easy access next time you activate the speaker.
Use the Bang & Olufsen App in your phone or tablet to set up your speakers in your Wi-Fi network by following these easy steps:
1. Connect the speakers to power and wait for a few seconds. The speaker can now be detected.
2. Download and open the Bang & Olufsen App, create a profile, and add the speakers you want to have in your setup one by one.
3. Start your favourite streaming app and select the speakers you want to play music from.
Connected speakers setup
Select your speakers based on the size of your space, your placement options, your preferred design style, and the performance you are looking for. We have speakers suited for a variety of purposes: seated cinematic experiences, social gatherings in a large room, background music in the home office, music for smaller rooms, and speakers that can easily be moved around. Learn more in our Home Speaker Systems guide.
With wireless speakers you can choose between multiple placement options, and the speakers can adjust their performance to their position for the best sound experience. Depending on the speaker model, you may be able to use a manual switch to optimise the speaker performance to its placement in the room or you may benefit from an automatic room compensation feature. With a manual switch, you can choose between wall, corner or freestanding placement. With automatic room compensation, the speaker calibrates itself to its position in the room. You can also choose the room compensation feature in the Bang & Olufsen App to get the optimal music experience.
Select the right speakers for you by taking into account your room sizes and design preferences. You can use the compare feature on our website to see different speaker prices, features, connectivity options, as well as the recommended room size for them. For a larger speaker setup, we recommend contacting your nearest retailer for personalised advice.
