Bang & Olufsen Beolit 15 review: Portable picnic party

 

Bang & Olufsen is well known for making top notch speakers with quirky design features. In the Beloit 15 it's as though B&O has taken the concept of a picnic hamper and crammed a bunch of drivers into it for large scale on-the-go sound. The B&O Beolit...

Loud and clear sound quality, portable picnic party

Expensive, heavy to carry around

The B&O Beolit 15 is a different prospect to most Bluetooth speakers of this size (230 x 189 x 135mm), in that it's portable. With a battery that lasts up to 24-hours that all-day picnic could turn into an all-night party.

Bang & Olufsen Beolit 15 Review

 

Can one of the most evocative names in audio raise the Bluetooth speaker game?

Powerful and room filling sound ; Excellent build ; Handsome looks

Issues updating unit software ; Ap is iOS only ; Fairly pricey

This is a slightly frustrating summary to write. Judged objectively, this is an excellent Bluetooth speaker. The Beolit 15 has impressive reserves of power and Bang & Olufsen's experience with DSP and small drivers has resulted in a product that sounds...

Bang & Olufsen Beolit 15

 

The Bang & Olufsen Beolit 15 luxury Bluetooth speaker is an attractive design piece and an audio powerhouse in one—and it'll cost you.

Excellent audio performance with rich bass and clear highs. Gets very loud. Stylish Danish design. Can connect to two devices at once. Stores up to eight devices in memory

Expensive. Digital signal processing and enhanced bass response not for purists. No speakerphone functionality

There are affordable portable Bluetooth speakers, and then there are luxury portable Bluetooth speakers. The $599 Bang & Olufsen Beolit 15, clearly, falls into the latter category. If the price doesn't cause you to bolt, the speaker will not...

Bang & Olufsen Beolit 15 Bluetooth Speaker Review

 

The Bluetooth speakers comes in two categories affordable and luxury speakers. The Bang & Olufsen Beolit 15 clearly falls into the latter category. The speaker design is elegant and straightforward and when seen from the outside it resembles a lunchbox...

Stylish design, Excellent audio performance with rich bass and clear highs, Gets very loud, 24 hours music playback

No speaker phone capability

Bang and Olufsen Beolit 15 is one the few standout products in the wireless speaker category, featuring an elegant design and excellent sound signature. It will appeal to true audiophiles and to most listeners. If price is peanuts for you, then B&O...

Exceeds expectations

 

I knew this was good as a friend had one. On offer and in black it was too good to pass up, as it provides much more flexibility than my hard wired Zeppelin Air. Summer BBQs are going to get a whole lot better with this little beauty !
