A wireless speaker with a dynamic acoustic performance designed to be positioned up against the wall on a shelf or side table in your home. Impressive sound compared to its size.
Beosound Balance with the Google Assistant
An interior silhouette balancing gracefully on a base of natural wood. The simplicity of this design, rooted in Scandinavian minimalism, contrasts strongly with its raw, high-performing sound. And with a shape distinctly broken into two components, Beosound Balance is luxurious design in an interior object form. We collaborated on the design with Benjamin Hubert of Layer Design, a creative studio from London highly specialized not only in design but also in creating unique user interfaces.
Maximise the sound performance
Designed to be positioned up against the wall on a shelf or side table, Beosound Balance delivers carefully controlled beams of sound for a clear acoustic experience from the front and rich sound enhancement at the back. The result is an impressively big acoustic experience compared to its size.
A unique combination of luxurious materials crafted to create an iconic look and a premium sound performance — a precision-crafted aluminium grill with a Fibonacci pattern for acoustic transparency and a solid oak wood base for a sculptural feel.

Beautiful design that interacts with you
Welcomes you with a human touch
Tactile user-interaction experience and light-through-aluminium for subtle look and a touch of magic with proximity sensors built-in to welcome you when you approach Beosound Balance for interaction – so the controls only appear when needed. When you walk away from Besound Balance, the controls dim once more leaving only the well-crafted aluminium surface visible.
Get more done with just your voice
Beosound Balance with the Google Assistant. You can easily enjoy music at home just with your voice; you can play your favorite music, control volume and find information about the song that you are listening to, hands-free. You can also plan your day, set alarms and control smart devices around your home - just by using your voice.
Moreover, Beosound Balance has four favourite buttons, where you can save your favourite Google preset and listening experiences for easy access.

Different Sound Experiences
Different sound experiences for different needs. With its unique acoustic configuration of seven drivers, Beosound Balance is made to deliver a strong bass performance and a broad sound image for truly room filling sound when you want it. The ability to provide beam forming technology also enables Beosound Balance to deliver sound directivity for focused listening from all positions – all in one package.
The acoustic set up of Beosound Balance includes two 5.25'' bass drivers for powerful bass performance, two 2'' full range drivers and one 3/4 tweeter placed in the front for a clear, defined sound reproduction and finally two 3'' full range drivers placed in the back that act as sound enhancers.
Active Room Compensation
Beosound Balance is equipped with Active Room Compensation capabilities which optimize sound experience based on the positioning of the speaker in the room, in practice by actively adapting the speaker tuning to compensate for acoustic surroundings.
“What appeals to me as a creative is to work in a more democratic fashion… it always improves the end result, the experience and the products you're delivering.” We sat down and spoke with the designer Benjamin Hubert in his East London studio and discussed creative process, musical inspiration, and creating the Beosound Balance speaker.
