      Beautiful product and very similar in build quality and dimension to the first generation mode. I wanted to love this speaker, but unfortunately, despite better sound specs on paper, it doesn’t sound as good nor does it get as loud as the first generation model.The first gen A1 has a much, much wider soundstage and much more believable bass. The second gen A1 simply sounds like another Bluetooth speaker. Sorry, B&O…you can’t have awesome sound and battery life…something’a got to give. Power draw for the 2nd gen while in use is 5W, whereas the 1st gen draws 15W. Yes, battery life will be worse in the first gen speaker, but the sound is significantly better to my ears. You’ll have to decide what’s more important; sound quality or battery life/waterproof rating.Read more

      I purchased the B&O Beosound A1 2nd Gen to improve my MacBook Pro – based, 2 cable (1 monitor power cord, 1 USBC to drive the external monitor + power my MacBook Pro) work from home setup. My work area is limited and in the middle of my kitchen / living / dining area — so aesthetics are also a factor.I specifically wanted: (1) reliable, high quality audio for conferencing and music, (2) small footprint, (3) cable-free / wireless operation, and (4) long battery life.On paper, the B&O Beosound A1 seemed ideal; however after extensive research I felt like I would be paying a premium for the small form factor while compromising on sound quality (ref Alan Ross YouTube videos) and perhaps battery life. I decided to take the plunge as I could return the unit if it disappointed.The unit was delivered on time and I was very impressed with the packaging, instruction booklet, physical quality, and straightforward button layout. Setup and software update using the B&O iOS app was intuitive and almost effortless. Pairing the unit with my MacBook Pro and selecting the microphone and speaker in MacOS preferences was routine. The unit charged from 80% to 100% using my MacBook Pro USBC power adapter in about 2 hours. I immediately tested music playback and found it acceptable and inline with Alan Ross’s review (good highs and mids, less than robust bass, and sound quality highly sensitive to speaker placement / tweeter orientation). I also observed that the unit would power off after a period of inactivity and was concerned that I might have to reset the speaker and microphone connections after turning the unit back on. All in all these were potential complications I could live with.The unit passed its inaugural 1 hour Microsoft Teams meeting / video conference with flying colors the following day: powering it up reestablished wireless Bluetooth pairing, plus microphone and speaker assignments; and audio quality was reliable and exceptional throughout the meeting. This is the primary reason I purchased the unit, so I was ready to claim mission accomplished. However, a surprise was in store.After my conference call I decided to check battery level using the B&O app — the unit was at 95% after a few hours of experimenting with music playback, letting the unit sit overnight and a 1 hour conference call in the morning. That was reassuring, but while in the app my attention was drawn to the app’s Equalizer feature which I had glossed over during setup and did not examine during my prior musical exploration — so I decided decompress to random selections from my Apple Music library while also testing the equalizer settings.Wow, I was blown away by the difference in sound quality using the equalizer — particularly the Ambient setting. I listened to selections from John Williams, Florence + the Machine, Acadia, Los Lonely Boys, Makaveli, Chick Corea, James Blake, Lydia Low, Ani DiFranco, Prince, Coldplay, Matisyahu, Public Enemy, Anthony and The Johnsons, Yael Naim and others. The range featured classical, R&B, rock, reggae, metal, alternative, singer songwriter, vocal, instrumental, a cappella — an excellent sample of what I listen to — and nothing disappointed: Sound clarity is excellent, highs are bright, mids are uniform and punchy, lows are deep and moving for a 5″ speaker, and volume is excellent for my use case (personal audio — not throwing a party).Net-net: It turns out that the Beosound A1 2nd Gen was a no compromises purchase for my requirements. The form factor perfectly matches my minimal Mac setup, the conferencing functionality is great and the sound quality is exceptional for my musical tastes. This product is of the best purchases I’ve made.Read more

      I’ve been using Bose products for over a decade and recently I tried a pair of B&O headphone and immediately noticed the difference. This is my first B&O Bluetooth speaker and it certainly delivered. Once again immediately noticed the difference and sound quality over my Bose Soundlink Revolve +. I am officially sold on B&O and will never look back. For such a small speaker it packs a punch and we love the integrated Alexa feature that works flawlessly with our smart home.Read more

      Bluetooth very glitchy. Female voice will come on saying make sure Bluetooth in range & power on, would do this every few hours & very loud, louder than music when it’s already connected to Bluetooth. Also would disconnect to Bluetooth out of the blue a lot. All this happenings was too much where I couldn’t enjoy the music or audiobook so I had to returned the speaker back. I payed a premium price & should’ve worked the first time. If B&O could fix this Bluetooth problem, I would buy it again because the sound was phenomenal & personalizing the sound was a plus, has Alexa, P6 water resistant, & premium quality feel to the speaker.Read more

      For its size, the sound quality is great. I do have some songs that it just doesn’t handle all that well though. Battery life is amazing. I use it at work for about 6.5 hours (at about 40% volume), then about an 1.5 hours more at home (at about 30% volume), and only need to recharge it once a week. Yes, turning up the volume will require more power. But, if you just like adding ambiance, keeping it below half volume gives great endurance.Bluetooth delay greatly depends on the app being used. For most video streaming purposes, the lag was minimal to where it wasn’t a distraction. Games were a few seconds behind which makes this not a good experience.Using the speaker for phone calls worked well.Since I use it daily, it has quite a few dings. At work, I tie it around my belt so it does get hit once in a while. The scuffs really do show, and not gracefully contrary to the advertising.Price may be a pain point for some buyers.Read more

      As with anything Bang & Olufsen, everything is gorgeously designed to the max. The sound is literally like buttah. and can be wonderfully manipulated through the app. But the maximum output is rather disappointing. I suppose it depends on the quality of the input (e.g., laptop, phone, etc.) but I had expected it to be substantially more.Read more
