    Bang & Olufsen’s pricey new wireless speakers look like martini shakers

    If nothing else, Bang & Olufsen knows how to make an impression. The Danish audio company announced a pair of new wireless speakers — or rather, one speaker in two different sizes — with conical aluminium designs that, if nothing else, certainly stand out. The BeoSound 1 and 2 (names, interestingly enough, already used for a pair of shiny multi-room speakers about 10 or so… Read More

    B&O PLAY’s Beoplay A1 packs a lot of sound into a little Bluetooth speaker

    Some days it’s hard to get excited about Bluetooth speakers. That’s not a statement of judgment, really, it’s just that the space has been flooded with a lot of like-minded devices that are honestly pretty tough to tell apart. And then something like the Beoplay A1 comes along and gives you hope that maybe there’s still a little more excitement left in the category… Read More

  • Spend that tax return on a $12,000 46" Bang and Olufsen TV (monocle not included)

    To be fair, the $12,000 figure cited in the headline is pure guesswork on my part. But when the 40″ version of the TV, reviewed here at FlatPanelsHD, costs £6000 (about $10,000), it’s easy enough to do the math. These mega-lux TVs are meant to be the final word in current LCD TV technology — and will of course be worth less than a fig once AMOLED is the standard. Until… Read More

  • Bang & Olufsen sound coming to Mercedes-AMG cars

    We can’t think of a more fitting partnership than sticking ridiculous overpriced and over-engineered Bang & Olufsen speakers into a ridiculous overpriced and over-engineered Mercedes-AMG motorcar. The gadget gods above must be smiling down that two of their greatest creations are finally working together. B&O-equiped cars have been rolling around for a while now — notably… Read More

  • Hands on with the B&O, Samsung Serenata

    Here we have the lovechild of Samsung and Bang & Olufsen. It’s a quirky looking phone that most would think is upside down. We typically see scroll-wheels set at the bottom of the handset rather than the top. Sound quality on the Serenata is superb. It definitely improves on the Serene. The UI is all done from the scroll-wheel or on the touch screen, which is limited to firing up… Read More

  • Update: Samsung+Bang & Olufsen F310 Serenata Cellphone: Totally real, totally $2,000

    This Samsung F310 Serenata is real. I asked one of my friends at Samsung and he’s like, “I’m pretty sure.” That’s air-tight confirmation right there. He doesn’t know it it’ll come out in Americaland, though, so for now we’ll just have to make due with these renders. No spy shots, no unboxing, just a few renders. The stats aren’t bad by… Read More

  • Bang & Olufsen BeoLab9 Loudspeakers: Marketed So Fancily, You'd Hardly Know They're Speakers

    These crazy looking things are the Bang & Olufsen BeoLab9 loudspeakers. Now, when you go to B&F’s Web site, you’ll notice that the copy reads like the speakers are some sort of United Nations program to save the world from certain doom. But they’re not. They’re just unique looking speakers. Yes, they have all the goodies to ensure they sound wonderful, but… Read More

    Sorry, we missed this yesterday, but luxury electronics-maker Bang & Olufsen launched its first North American mobile phone, Serene, which was co-developed by Samsung. I know it’s not new new, and the set of functions on the $1,300 plus mobile isn’t anything more than standard (camera, SMS, MMS, e-mail, calendar, WAP and Bluetooth). However, its design is fairly unique… Read More
