Unbelievably good portable speaker
23 October 2017
This 'little' box by B&O is a marvel.
It's pretty small given how big the sound is, the battery is a monster and it looks amazing. Then again, for nigh on £450 it should shouldn't it?
The speaker looks amazing, the carrying handle is a great touch and it looks durable, and yet, for me, this was going to live plugged in in the leaving room.... why? Because I have a small space for a speaker which I want to give us an alternative to the stereo, unfortunately, though it looks as though myself and this B&O piece of kit weren't destined to be together. I have tried about 4 devices so far but nothing has quite satisfied my needs.
The sound on this was brilliant, but unfortunately constantly having to reconnect every time I wanted to use it was the killer - the problem here is that this is designed to be mobile and I just want to leave it switched on to automatically connect when I need it and not have to interact with it past pressing play.
Oh well, the thing is, my few days with this piece of kit did teach me that this is the best mobile speaker you can find, it's just designed to be mobile though, not for the living room. I can't give it anything less than 5 stars even though I returned it, given that it does sound incredible for a portable speaker and it does work as advertised, it just turns out - perhaps unsurprisingly - that it won't do what it's not designed to do.
