B&O’s portable speaker is a friend you can rely on this summer
Weighing just 600g and small enough to sit in the palm of your hand, the Beoplay A1 is an exercise in sleek design and packaging. Its cool-to-the-touch rounded aluminium grille sits atop a durable polymer base, which houses the powerful 30W and 140W drivers and amplifiers. There’s a reported 24 hours of battery life, too, which should prove useful on those long summer days, whether you’re hiking in Yosemite or poolside in St. Tropez.
