Built-In Bluetooth: The BeoPlay A1 offers built-in Bluetooth (version
4.0) with support for wireless music streaming (A2DP) and hands-free
communication (HFP). The speaker can pair with your Bluetooth device with a
single press of a button and no PIN entry.
- Bluetooth Music Streaming (A2DP): With support for
Bluetooth A2DP wireless audio streaming, you'll be
able to stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled Apple
iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Windows PC, Mac computer,
Blackberry, and more to the BeoPlay A1 speaker system. You'll continue to use
your compatible Bluetooth-enabled device to control music playback functions
and view song/artist information.
- Hands-Free Communication (HFP): BeoPlay A1 has a built-in
microphone and mic button which allows you to answer and end calls, as well
as dial out using voice recognition (phone must also support voice dial
function). When there is an incoming call, your music will be paused and the
callers voice will be heard through the Bluetooth speaker, while you carry
on your side of the conversation through the built-in microphone. Advance
phone functions will still need to be done from your smartphone.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some
Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may
not support all features when used with the BeoPlay A1.
Two-Way Driver Design: The BeoPlay A1 features a two-way
driver design with one 0.75" tweeter and one 3.5" woofer powered by a 30W RMS (140W Peak) x 2ch Class D amplifier for an audible range from 60Hz-24,000Hz. Bass
extension is greater than you'd imagine for something so small. Armed with a new
aluminum core woofer with a powerful magnetic system it can deliver full-range
sound with great character even at low frequency levels (down to 60Hz).
Rugged Housing: The BeoPlay A1 combines a double-molded polymer base
with a rounded aluminum grill to form a strong protective shell for the
Bluetooth speaker. Splash and dust resistant, the BeoPlay A1 is designed to take
its fair share of bumps and scrapes while still protecting the delicate drivers
and electronics inside.
