Quality and style, ready to go
Bang & Olufsen has a knack for creating distinctive-looking products that sound great. The BeoPlay A2 sports a unique, highly portable design that makes it easy to enjoy your music everywhere. This sharp-looking speaker is well-crafted, durable, and boasts 24 hours of battery life. Music plays wirelessly from your phone or tablet using Bluetooth. True360 omnidirectional sound creates a genuine social experience — everyone around the A2 enjoys the same natural sound.
24 hours of battery life? Really?
That caught our eye too. When the A2 is fully charged, you get a whole day's worth of music. You can also borrow some of that power to recharge your mobile device via the USB port.
Smooth sound from every angle
Bang & Olufsen packs an impressive array of drivers into the slim BeoPlay A2. A pair of 3" full-range woofers power your tunes, with the bass enhanced by two 3" passive radiators. Two 3/4" tweeters deliver the highs. Bang & Olufsen's exclusive True360 sound technology makes sure the whole crowd hears the same well-balanced sound. No matter how you place the speaker, music radiates in an omnidirectional soundfield.
The BeoPlay A2's aluminum core adds stability and reduces vibration. A tough polymer shell protects the vitals. Grab the premium leather strap to tote the speaker from place to place. The A2 was constructed with both looks and practicality in mind.
The BeoPlay A2 pairs effortlessly with your smartphone or tablet. It's equipped with Bluetooth 4.0, which includes support for aptX® audio coding. This delivers higher-fidelity sound from devices that have that technology built in, but the speaker is also backward-compatible with older versions of Bluetooth, so you can stream music from just about any mobile device.
