Bang & Olufsen Beosound Explore
Bang & Olufsen introduces Beosound Explore, a tough and robust speaker created for adventure, helping you reach your peak with sound by your side. Developed to be lightweight, waterproof and with excellent playtime, Beosound Explore is the perfect outdoor speaker featuring Bang & Olufsen's signature sound and Scandinavian design, built for durability. Beosound Explore is the first speaker on the market to feature Type 2 anodized aluminum for improved scratch resistance, making it the perfect speaker for outdoor activities. Created at Bang & Olufsen's Factory 5 in Struer, Denmark, the anodization is achieved by building up the aluminum oxide on the surface.
"We created Beosound Explore to be our toughest speaker that can withstand the outdoor elements. The speaker is dust and waterproof, embodied in a scratch-resistant type 2 anodized aluminum surface. The exceptional sound quality for its size makes Beosound Explore the perfect companion for any adventure." - says Bang & Olufsen SVP of Product Management Christoffer Poulsen.
The speaker features an aluminum carabiner so that you can tightly hang the speaker from a rucksack whilst on long hikes. Together with an integrated strap for hanging, Beosound Explore is extremely versatile, delivering excellent performance no matter where it is placed. Whether hiking or camping outdoors, the IP67 Dust and Waterproof rating protect the speaker if it accidentally gets wet. Designed with portability in mind, Beosound Explore's cylindrical shell provides a secure grip and fits easily into rucksack pockets so you can stay focused on the track ahead. Despite its durable outer shell, the speaker is lightweight at 631 grams, letting you stay agile whilst on the move. With up to 27 hours of playtime at typical listening volumes, Beosound Explore gives you the freedom to use the speaker all day without needing to rely on a power supply and is a faithful companion when out in the wild.
Reminiscent of forests, glaciers, and fjords typically found in Scandinavian landscapes, Beosound Explore is available in a Black Anthracite, Green, or Grey Mist finish for an understated and natural aesthetic. The aluminum shell feels special to touch and features a simple and intuitive user interface on top of the product for excellent visibility which is also easy to use with gloves on for colder conditions. Beosound Explore delivers Bang & Olufsen's signature sound and features dual 1.8" full-range drivers to deliver powerful sound. Attention has been given to outdoor performance and supreme bass, delivering 59dB in bass capability despite its compact size. The grill is cut in 360-degree lines to ensure True360 omnidirectional sound, perfect for nights spent around a campfire. Info and photos by Bang & Olufsen.
