BeoPlay A1 - 1st Generation.
The speaker weighs 600g and feels reassuringly weighty in your hands. In keeping with Bang & Olufsen’s heritage of using luxurious materials, a genuine leather strap is included. Contrasted against the metal of the speaker, it provides a nice counterpoint as well as giving you something to hold when carrying the speaker around or a means to hang the speaker up.
B&O Beoplay A1 review: Features and microphone
All of the controls are seamlessly integrated into the polymer base, meaning there aren’t any protruding buttons to disrupt the clean lines. The cabinet is both splash and dust resistant, so it can handle being taken on outdoor excursions provide you don’t submerge it in water.
There are volume controls as well as a multifunction control button for playing and pausing your music. A microphone is also included and you can use the Beoplay A1 as a conference speaker either with your Bluetooth device or with a computer when connected through USB.
