Sound you’ll want to share

With enough volume to fill a room, Beosound A1 punches way above its size. It has the largest bass woofer you’ll find in this type of compact speaker, delivering punchy low end and great dynamics. And its round shape spreads sound in every direction so everyone can tune in.


Lots of time for play

With up to 18 hours of playtime, chances are you’ll tap out before Beosound A1 does. Depending on volume level, this little speaker can keep the garden party or marathon meeting going for hours. Without missing a beat.

Always on call

Three microphones – positioned at the top for greater clarity – make Beosound A1 the perfect speakerphone for catchups and meetings alike. And with Alexa Voice Assistant, it’s now even easier to interact: pick a song, plan your day or check the weather without lifting a finger.

Reliable connection

Musical fidelity? It’s all down to a seamless, solid connection. Beosound A1 features Bluetooth 5.1 technology, which means a better connection that uses less energy. And with Microsoft Swift Pair and Google Fast Pair, you connect even faster to your devices.



Partner in sound. From the pool to the penthouse.

Grab it and go. Or hang it on the wall. Beosound A1 has been specifically crafted to move with you and fit in just about anywhere. From cooking in the kitchen to cooking in the sun, the fully dust and waterproof IP67 construction means you don’t have to worry about any of life’s thrills or spills.


Elegance. On or off.

Brushed, perforated aluminium. High-grade water-repellent leather. And almost a century of craft. Beosound A1 is an enticing speaker design that manages to stand out while fitting in.


Discrete, intuitive controls

Durable aluminium shell

Versatile leather strap

A1 2nd Gen – now better than ever
The second generation of the classic A1 is packed with new features, such as Alexa and Tencent integration, and an improved interface and yet is even slimmer than before. The same great B&O sound from a stylish and portable speaker continues, making the Beosound A1 2nd Gen the premium portable speaker of choice.

Small speaker – big sound
As you’d expect from this legendary Danish brand, the Beosound A1 2nd Gen offers superior sound quality. Packed within the stylish design you’ll find a two-way speaker for a rich, full-bodied sound. Powered by a Class-D, digital amplifier that pushes out no less than 60 watts, the A1 2nd Gen provides room-filling sound. For such a small speaker, the Beosound A1 2nd Gen sounds anything but petite.

Stereo pairing
For an even more immersive sound, the A1 2nd Gen can now be paired for stereo. With two A1s, you not only get a larger, more generous sound but also a true stereo soundstage, meaning the music sounds just as the artist intended from the studio or live recording.

Improved Bluetooth connectivity
The latest Bluetooth 5.1 wireless connection gives enhanced sound quality with more detail and a punchier sound. Compatible with Apple’s AAC codec, as well as aptX Adaptive, the A1 2nd Gen produces the crispest and most precise sound from your music files. Simply pair it with your smartphone, tablet or computer and stream stored music or music from your favourite apps such as Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music.

Getting straight down to it
Connecting to your music device is now faster than ever. With Apple Fast Pair (MFI), Google Fast Pair and Microsoft Swift Pair, the speaker is ready to go with your smartphone or PC in next to no time.

Talk to me
Voice assistant integration is now more comprehensive than ever. Alexa and Tencent integration with a far-field wake (3 to 5 metres) is now standard, making the Beosound A1 2nd Gen ideal for hands-free operation – perfect for when you’ve got your hands full in the kitchen. The 3-mic array also gives excellent voice pick-up for top-quality, hands-free voice calls.

Enhanced battery life
With a built-in battery pack, the Beosound A1 2nd Gen is the perfect speaker to take with you. It’s the ideal speaker for music in the garden, camping, festivals or anywhere else where power isn’t readily available. Battery life is up 46% to an incredible 43 hours at background volume (55dB) and still impressive 18 hours at higher (70dB) listening levels.

Unique B&O style
The beauty of B&O design has always been in detail, and the Beosound A1 2nd Gen is no different. The rounded, anodised aluminium grille doesn’t just look good it also forms a strong, protective shell around the speaker. The Bang & Olufsen branded, leather carry strap is another premium design feature. At just 46mm deep and 558 grammes in weight, the speaker is slimmer and lighter than before, making it even easier to take with you.

Dust and waterproof – IP67 rating
The final improvement made to this impressive speaker is that it’s now IP67 rated. This means that it has passed independent testing to be highly resistant to both dust and water. This makes it the perfect speaker to use on the beach or by the pool, without worrying if it gets splashed with sand or water, or even gets knocked into the pool!
