Beauty in a Small Package: B&O PLAY A1

By  |  0 Comments

Portable speakers are no longer a novelty for the young who want a means to play music at their outings. The B&O PLAY A1 is an example of a quality, practical speaker that’s equally at ease at home or away.

Whether you just want something unobtrusive around the house that can also provide room-filling sound, or something you can bring around for gatherings or getaways, the A1 is perfect either way. It combines beautiful Danish design by award-winning Cecilie Manz as well, and is B&O’s smallest Bluetooth speaker to date. The beautifully contoured aluminium dome forms a strong protective housing and gives it elegance, while the double moulded polymer base blends smoothly with the dome and provides traction when placed on the table. It’s small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, while the soft leather strap invites you to carry it everywhere.


The A1 sounds bigger than it looks, thanks to advanced tech that creates a spacious 360-degree soundscape. The aluminium cone mid woofer and silk dome tweeter will wow you with crisp, clear audio and impressive lows.

What’s impressive also is its battery life: up to 24 hours portable playtime, thanks to an Adaptive Power Management that feeds only the exact amount of power needed, when needed.

The built-in speakerphone and the microphone provides uniform 360 speech sensitivity, no matter where people are speaking in proximity to the microphone.
