Luxury brand Bang & Olufsen has released two models of smart speakers Beosound 1 and Beosound 2. Apparently they don’t even look like speakers aluminum cones «floating» above the surface, giving the bass the bottom.
Beosound 1 has a battery for wireless music playback, while the second model is only suitable for stationary use. Google Assistant has five microphones and acoustic echo cancellation. On the top face, which rotates to adjust the volume, are four buttons that can be assigned to, for example, report the weather or playing a favorite playlist. There is support for Chromecast and AirPlay 2.
The Junior version includes 1×1.5-inch full-range driver, and a 1×4-inch subwoofer, while the more expensive model has a 0.75-inch tweeter, two drivers, two inch and 5.25-inch woofer.
Beosound sales will begin in the fall in 14 countries, including USA, UK and Germany. The Junior model is estimated at $ 1,750 (~119 300 rubles), high — 2250 USD (~153 400 rubles).
