"What might have caught us off guard is just how impressive they sound. ... As a result, these might be some of the first 360-degree speakers that have truly impressed us when it comes to both looks and sound. ... The BeoSound 1 puts an emphasis on portability, with a built-in rechargeable battery that allows it to be carried around your home. Battery life is stated as up to 16 hours of playback time at “moderate” volume, or four hours when listening at louder volumes. That’s still fairly impressive considering it packs in two amplifiers — one 40-watt class D amplifier for the full-range driver, and another 20-watt class D amplifier for the woofer. ... Both speakers bring the 360-degree concept to the design of the speaker as well as the sound. Both models feature a conical design that looks similar to the base of a lamp, allowing them to blend in with the decor of a room rather than loudly declare exactly what they are."
"The Beosound 1 & 2 are eye-catching, and seem designed to stand out rather than vanish into the furnishings. One nice touch, however, are the speakers' antennae, which form short black strips on the sides to maximize the signal strength."

"B&O’s Acoustic Lens Technology works a treat in the BeoSound 1: the circumaural spread of sound is incredibly wide and evenly dispersed. There’s no sweet spot here – you’ll get the same sound no matter where you’re sitting or what direction you’re facing the conical speaker. In that alone the BeoSound 1 is a success: no other wireless speaker at this price has been able to deliver 360-degree sound quite so convincingly.Crank up the volume and you’ll be surprised by just how loud the BeoSound 1 can go, (almost deceptively so) thanks to low distortion levels. It’s a clean sound, with no jagged edges or lumbering lows to blight the smooth delivery."
