A1 2nd Gen – now better than ever

The second generation of the classic A1 is packed with new features, such as Alexa and Tencent integration, an improved interface and yet is even slimmer than before. The same great B&O sound from a stylish and portable speaker continues, making the Beosound A1 2nd Gen the premium portable speaker of choice.

Small speaker – big sound
As you'd expect from this legendary Danish brand, the Beosound A1 2nd Gen offers superior sound quality. Packed within the stylish design you'll find a two-way speaker for rich, full-bodied sound. Powered by a Class-D, digital amplifier that pushes out no less than 60 watts, the A1 2nd Gen provides room-filling sound. For such a small speaker, the Beosound A1 2nd Gen sounds anything but petite.

Stereo pairing
For an even more immersive sound, the A1 2nd Gen can now be paired for stereo. With two A1s, you not only get a larger, more generous sound but also a true stereo soundstage, meaning the music sounds just as the artist intended from the studio or live recording.

Improved Bluetooth connectivity
The latest Bluetooth 5.1 wireless connection gives enhanced sound quality with more detail and a punchier sound. Compatible with Apple’s AAC codec, as well as aptX Adaptive, the A1 2nd Gen produces the crispest and most precise sound from your music files. Simply pair with your smartphone, tablet or computer and stream stored music or music from your favourite apps such as Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music.

Getting straight down to it
Connecting to your music device is now faster than ever. With Apple Fast Pair (MFI), Google Fast Pair and Microsoft Swift Pair, the speaker is ready to go with your smartphone or PC in next to no time.

Talk to me
Voice assistant integration is now more comprehensive than ever. Alexa and Tencent integration with far field wake (3 to 5 metres) is now standard, making the Beosound A1 2nd Gen ideal for hands-free operation – perfect for when you’ve got your hands full in kitchen. The 3-mic array also gives excellent voice pick-up for top quality, hands-free voice calls.

Enhanced battery life.
With a built-in battery pack, the Beosound A1 2nd Gen is the perfect speaker to take with you. It’s the ideal speaker for music in the garden, camping, festivals or anywhere else where power isn't readily available. Battery life is up 46% to an incredible 43 hours at background volume (55dB) and a still impressive 18 hours at higher (70dB) listening levels.

Unique B&O style
The beauty of B&O design has always been in the detail, and the Beosound A1 2nd Gen is no different. The rounded, anodised aluminium grille doesn’t just look good it also forms a strong, protective shell around the speaker. The Bang & Olufsen branded, leather carry strap is another premium design feature. At just 46mm deep and 558 grammes in weight, the speaker is slimmer and lighter than before, making it even easier to take with you.

Dust and waterproof – IP67 rating
The final improvement made to this impressive speaker is that it’s now IP67 rated. This means that it has passed independent testing to be highly resistant to both dust and water. This makes it the perfect speaker to use on the beach or by the pool, without worrying if it gets splashed with sand or water, or even gets knocked into the pool!

Enjoy top quality sound, style and functionality, wherever you are, with the Bang and Olufsen Beosound A1 2nd Gen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Sound The speaker has excellent sound with a greater sound range than my previous speaker and I have heard detail on familiar tracks that I have not heard before. It's quite heavy but this makes it feel solid. Not having controls that can be felt makes operation a little more difficult than it need be, as one has to position the fingers quite precisely to operate them but this is a minor point. The ability to access Alexa is useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from B & O Beosound A1 Bluetooth speaker I bought this B & O A1 without hesitation as our son who is a freelance journalist specialising in technical equipment had tested and reviewed an earlier version a couple of years ago and rated it very highly. It was delivered within 24 hours of ordering and paired seamlessly with my iPhone 7. We use it hung on our swing bench in the garden and set it to 'ambient' mode. The sound is crystal clear with Spotify and My Music and so far has had several hours of playing without having to re-charge. As a long standing customer of Richer Sounds, I am always happy with the service and advise offered and will continue to use them.
