Bang & Olufsen presents Beosound Edge: A speaker you can roll around

Bang & Olufsen has impressed us yet again — this time revealing the minimalist and powerful Beosound Edge. Collaboratively created with acclaimed lighting designer Michael Anastassiades, the speaker is carved like a huge circular coin; with a polished aluminium body and matte black fabric cover. Along with its striking curvature, comes state-of-the-art features that redefines sound. 

Debuting with the Active Bass port design discreetly hidden behind the fabric fronts (imagine a gate that closes at lower volumes to produce a more delicate sound and opens at higher volumes to produce a powerful sound), the Beosound Edge promises optimal sound performances for all occasions; whether you require strong bass and high volume for a party or a subtle listening experience at home.

Its circular design allows two placements — a striking centerpiece on the floor or mounted on the wall. Opting for the first? Simply tweak the volume of the speaker by physically rolling the speaker; a gentle movement will produce a slight change in volume while a stronger movement produces a more dramatic change. Armed with proximity sensors that activates and lights up the interface as you approach, the Beosound Edge is definitely a glimpse into the future of technology. It also features three directional sound settings: the front, back and a 360° omnidirection to fill the entire room — all with the touch of a single button on their phone app. Movie nights at home might never be the same again. 

Drawing on warmer tones, the circular speaker is also available in a sandy golden hue, as part of the Danish brand's limited edition bronze collection. 

Beosound Edge and Beosound Edge (bronze collection) will be available at Bang & Olufsen Grand Hyatt, Bang & Olufsen Takashimaya and Bang & Olufsen TANGS from mid November 2018 and mid December 2018 respectively.
