What does $862 get you nowadays? Premium headphones and a 4GB digital music player.
Bang & Olufsen’s new Beosound 6 is perfect for people who wear pleated khakis and loafers with no socks, enjoy 24 hours of battery life, and don’t have time to comparison shop. If that’s you, great.
If that’s not you, maybe you could just pick up Samsung’s YP-Z5 — the Bang & Olufsen player looks like it and uses its software. It’s listed on Amazon for $159, a savings of almost a billion dollars.
Use that savings for a nice pair of headphones and oh, I don’t know, some groceries.
