Combine your Bang & Olufsen and B&O PLAY multi-room devices and you can play different music in separate rooms or fill the whole house with one melody.

With our Acoustic Lens Technology, you will experience an almost spherical sound that is surprisingly loud and extremely detailed, so you can enjoy all the beautiful musical nuances.

Adaptive Bass Linearisation technology allows the spare power of amplifiers and speakers to be used to reproduce even richer bass, while controlling and adjusting the sound at maximum load.

The Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 2 has a 3/4-inch tweeter that plays sound down into a reflector, and the spherical sound profile is the result of this speaker placement and the width of the gap between the top and bottom of the speaker.

The tapered aluminum enclosures float slightly above the floor for bass response from the woofers. They are slightly open at the top for acoustic reasons, but the rest of the surface looks smooth – so it has a solid and thoughtfully minimal design. And if you look closer at the structure of aluminum, you get the feeling that the product was made by hand, practically shaped like a tool.

Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 2 is made in the form of a cone, the upper part of which is responsible for control. The body of the device is made of durable aluminum, which protects the internal elements and emphasizes the stylish appearance of the device.

Aluminum is our proprietary material and was chosen not only for design, but also because the closed aluminum housing provides better acoustics due to the strength of the material, preventing dissonance from joints and corners and eliminating distortion.

The device is designed to distribute sound in any direction, so it can be installed anywhere, while the sound quality remains unchanged. The model is equipped with a subwoofer that will provide deep bass.

Play tunes directly from your favorite music apps via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, or enjoy the full Bang & Olufsen experience with the BeoMusic App The

top of the speaker functions as a simple control panel: you simply turn it like a wheel to adjust the volume and tap and slide your finger across the top to control the rest of the functions.

BeoSound 2 has a built-in proximity sensor, which means it detects your presence as it approaches and is ready to follow your commands. The proximity sensor instantly calculates and uses the received data, so the user interface automatically turns to you.

Spotify, Deezer, QPlay and TuneIn are integrated so you can quickly and conveniently access millions of songs and thousands of playlists and radio broadcasts – without even having to take out your phone or tablet to start playing.

Because streaming services are built into BeoSound 2, it has the added benefit of extending the battery life of your mobile device by streaming directly from the cloud. This feature also allows you to continue using your phone to make calls, send text messages, and play games without interrupting your music.


Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 2 is a powerful wireless room-filling speaker system that fills the entire room with 360-degree sound, with a durable, beautiful aluminum housing, integrated Spotify, Deezer, QPlay and TuneIn access, and BeoLink Multiroom technology that connects Bang & Olufsen products to one wireless system throughout your home.
