Bang & Olufsen today introduced Beosound Level, a portable wireless home speaker that delivers impressive sound, unrivalled craftsmanship and a modular design that improves longevity. With its slim design and built-in recessed handle, portability is at the heart of Beosound Level. Whether standing upright in the kitchen, lying flat on a table or hanging gracefully on the wall, the speaker intelligently changes its tuning to deliver an exceptional music listening experience in any position, in any room.
HONEST MATERIALS THAT SOFTEN TECHNOLOGY
A pure expression of timeless design by Torsten Valeur and crafted at Factory 5 in Struer, Denmark, Beosound Level showcases Bang & Olufsen’s unrivalled expertise in aluminium manufacturing with its pearl blasted aluminium frame. Using materials that soften technology whilst suiting any interior, the speaker covers are available in a natural oak veneer, which has been treated to highlight the natural grains and texture of the wood, reminiscent of luxury Scandinavian furniture, and a seamless knitted dark grey Kvadrat textile which makes Beosound Level inviting to touch and visually appealing from any angle.
Beosound Level can easily be carried around the home and even taken into the garden thanks to its wireless technologies and IP54 Dust and Splash Water Resistant Rating. The speaker’s user interface is seamlessly integrated into its aluminium frame and the buttons can be activated through soft touch, allowing you to reach your favourite song or radio station effortlessly. When approaching the speaker, Beosound Level lights up to greet you through integrated proximity sensors adjusting its brightness to suit day or night. After you are finished interacting with the speaker, the light slowly dims, allowing the minimal design to take centre stage.
SUPERIOR SOUND THAT IS MADE TO MOVE
With 105 watts of music power, Beosound Level delivers excellent clarity and dynamic bass due to its powerful five-driver speaker setup with two 4” woofers, one 2” full range driver, two 0.8” tweeters and low distortion amplifiers which allows for adaptive sound staging and delivers 79dB bass capability and 96dB in mid-range loudness.
Beosound Level has advanced multi-channel supporting acoustic features including next generation active room compensation and comes with industry leading 16 hours of playtime at typical listening volumes. This is made possible by intelligently analyzing the behavior and continuously adjusting the power consumption and tuning of the speaker. The audio architecture of Beosound Level has been created to automatically adjust its acoustic tuning from 180-degrees to 360-degrees based on the way it is positioned, optimising your listening experience.
IMPROVING LONGEVITY THROUGH DESIGN
Bang & Olufsen is renowned for its long-lasting products, and with Beosound Level the company is also introducing new solutions to fight technology obsolescence, enhance resource efficiency, and improve longevity. In addition to its timeless appearance, Beosound Level has been modularly designed for easy maintenance, service, and repair where customers can perform simple operations like replacing the battery and service partners can easily access vital parts of the speaker.
Beosound Level comes with Bang & Olufsen’s new replaceable streaming module, which will power all the company’s future home speakers. The module has been frontloaded with enough processing power and connectivity technology to receive new performance updates and features for many years to come, and the module can easily be accessed for exchange and reconnection to the main board as a service solution. In case connectivity and streaming technology should become outdated over time, the module can be replaced with the latest version. This means that the speaker can be future proofed by updating to the latest technology standards to deliver decades of great sound experiences.
