Impressive 360-degree sound
BeoSound 2 is an elegant and uncomplicated speaker system designed for a relaxed 360-degree listening experience. It is presented slightly bigger and is more powerful than BeoSound 1. It needs a permanent power connection to produce its vigorous output of excellent sound with great clarity and distinction. It is primarily intended as a stationary music system, but it can easily be placed elsewhere when the need arises. It is usually placed on the floor or on a low piece of furniture.
Visual, the natural anodized, cone shaped cabinet that is slight curved (almost like a trumpet) creates the compact impression that makes the device fit in anywhere on a shelf or at the breakfast table. The shape makes it unobtrusive while still providing sufficient space at the bottom for the bass driver to create a great sound experience.
The OneTouch user interface of the Beosound 2 with Google Assistant has been revised and improved. It offers an almost magical 360 degree experience and is surprisingly easy to use. The interface has been enhanced with dedicated and personalized favourite buttons, a command button to start voice control, and multi-room functionality.
In addition to the integrated Google Assistant, Bang & Olufsen has placed four favourite buttons on the top of the speakers. These can be assigned various functions Frequently used commands such as streaming a radio station, playing the favourite playlist, reading out the weather forecast or calendar entries for the current day can be assigned to a single button. The buttons are independent of content and respond to any device or music service compatible with Google Assistant. The favourite buttons are LED illuminated and only visible when the product is active.
In addition, the smart speakers also feature proximity sensors that detect your presence and automatically turn the touch controls in your direction.
For a seamless sound experience throughout your home, you can also connect the speaker to other BeoLink Multiroom products. Simply connect your smartphone via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and play music.
