Bang & Olufsen, the Danish brand well known for its decorative range of home speakers has launched a new speaker called the Beosound Explore. It is a waterproof wireless speaker designed to be used in any condition. Its hardened, scratch-resistant and dust and waterproof shell can withstand a little more than normal wear and tear.
Beosound Explore has a rubberized base and aluminum body. The base ensures stability while a meticulously constructed internal design protects against drops and falls. It has IP67 water and dust resistance rating and can therefore withstand being submerged in a meter of water for up to 30 minutes, the company notes.
Powered by dual 1.8 full-range drivers coupled with two 30W Class D amplifiers along with an innovative grill design, the speaker offers a promising sound quality that can be enjoyed anywhere. Beosound Explore is an ultra-portable speaker that can be clipped to a belt or strapped to a backpack using provided carabineer or can be carried in the hand with the included waterproof strap. It provides up to 27 hours of continuous playback.
The speaker uses Bluetooth 5.2 for connectivity and there is also a USB-C for charging and streaming features. Users can control it easily with the onboard buttons. From quality to design, it seems like a really cool speaker.
Beosound Explore is available in three styles and can be purchased for €199 (about $242) from the official website.
