The Bang & Olufsen Beosound lineup has always been exciting. Not only does the series come with high-end audio devices, but they are generally packed with features.
But this time, the audio specialist has taken things to the next level. The 5th gen version of the Beosound A9 and the 3rd gen version of Beosound 2 are the definitions of future-proofed wireless speakers.
These two come with new colors, updated designs, and, most importantly, new features. So, what changed in the new Bang & Olufsen Beosound speakers?
Let’s first look into the Beosound A9. Unlike the predecessor, the A9 comes in three new standard finishes: Gold Tone, Black Anthracite, and Natural Aluminum.
But the colors are not the main highlight of the high-end speaker. Instead, the speaker’s new and improved interface is the thing that makes the A9 a proper upgrade.
This new interface will enable you to change the volume by sliding your hand across the surface. And with single-tap controls, you can instantly play, pause, or skip the playback.
On the other hand, the Bang & Olufsen Beosound 2 comes with a unique conical shape. This specific design allows the speaker to offer 360-degree sound.
And like the Beosound A9, it comes with three different finishes. Also, you will find the brand-new interface in the Beosound 2, allowing you to control playback smoothly.
Moreover, the Beosound 2 features Active Room Compensation, which will let the speaker detect its position in the room and adjust the sound accordingly. With it in place, the speaker can offer you the most optimized sound for a better listening experience.
Another big improvement that both the new Bang & Olufsen Beosound models enjoy is the addition of the Mozart software platform.
It is basically what is making the speakers future-proofed. Thanks to it, the speakers can be updated or revised to align with the latest innovations and changes in software and platforms.
There is also a replacement module inside the Bang & Olufsen Beosound speakers, which B&O claims to be extremely powerful. How powerful is it?
Well, according to the brand, it will be compatible with the software updates and features “for years to come.” When the connectivity or the streaming platform becomes outdated or obsolete, you can just simply replace the module with a new one.
In other words, you might never need to buy a new speaker after getting one of the new Bang & Olufsen Beosound speakers. Besides that, both speakers can fit into any future muti-room systems.
Overall, the Mozart program is the main upgrade on the new Bang & Olufsen Beosound A9 and Beosound 2 speakers. And with it in place, you will never need to worry about having outdated features on your speakers.
