I have been living in Clapham for about 7 years now and for the first few years of living as a single man in London, the flat took a bit of a battering from pre-drinks to afterparty (on repeat). However I have spent the last year slowly redecorating the place and implementing new technologies into my interior design. For years I have had a wired speaker system, with smaller surround sound speakers physically wired into a large subwoofer. It served a purpose but it's time to move up a level, or 100, with Bang & Olufsen's incredible sound and impeccable design.
The new Bang & Olufsen multiroom collection. This collection of wireless speakers connects into one multiroom system allowing users to play different tracks simultaneously in different rooms - or play the same track throughout every space. Bang & Olufsen has an absolute focus on design and a signature sound. This technology is not designed to be hidden away, but to be a stylish addition to any room.
Fashion, tech and interior design are three of my passions and with Bang & Olufsen speakers I feel that they are the best at combining jaw dropping sound combined with stylish design and therefore fit in with my lifestyle perfectly. When choosing the right speakers for my London flat, I wanted to tick all of these boxes:
√ Multiroom functionality, so I can play one track across all speakers in different rooms.
√ Large range of speakers to choose from.
√ Stylish in design but something that would stand out.
√ Exceptional sound quality, both midrange & bass.
This range of B&O speakers clearly ticked all my boxes and based on my interior for the rooms I was going to place the speakers, I decided to go for the Beosound 1, Beoplay M5 and Beoplay A9.
The Beosound 1 was going to be my wireless, battery packed, versatile speaker, silver in design so would fit in to all room designs and wanted a speaker I could move from the hallway, kitchen and even outside on warm, dry days.
The Beoplay M5 was chosen for my bedroom, as the soft fabric finish in a black colour fits in perfectly with my exposed brick wall.
The Beoplay A9 was chosen to be my heavy weight speaker, a design masterclass and punchy sound, perfect for a design feature in my front room, dining room area.
BANG & OLUFSEN BEOSOUND 1 REVIEW
Bang & Olufsen are the ultimate leaders in speaker design and the new Beosound 1 has taken the brand into the stratosphere with this unique design that will hear the words "wow that's a speaker" all the time. The Beosound 1 is finished in polished aluminium with black contrast control panels, the design aspect is sleek straight lines in a mountainous shape.
It would be easy to neglect the sound quality with such an incredibly designed speaker, but that just wouldn't be the Bang & Olufsen way, would it! B&O have packed this small speaker casing with an incredible punch with a single mid-range speaker and woofer. Although it is the 360 degree sound which means that it can punch out exactly the same sound wherever you are standing around it and the rechargeable battery that offers from 4-16 hours of play-time depending on the volume level, that really makes this speaker truly portable.
BANG & OLUFSEN BEOPLAY A9 REVIEW
The Beoplay A9 is a complete beast of a speaker, in fact I would go as far to say that you should treat it like a piece of electrical furniture. Big and bold, a complete statement piece of stylish design - a talking point in any room. The Beoplay A9 is a whopping 70.1cm in diameter and weighs around 15kg with the legs attached, however you'll be pleased to know that it is portable with a handy handle at the back of the speaker.
As with all of these B&O speakers, it supports Spotify, TuneIn, Deezer and Google Cast streaming services. You can really crank up the volume with this speaker (or technically speakers) as it has a total of 5 builtin beauties - 1 woofer, 2 midrange and 2 tweeters combine to give off a sound that gives goosebumps. The Beoplay A9 comes in a variety of different colours and wooden legs, so if you want a descrete colour to mould into your furniture or a bold statement colour, the Beoplay A9 is for you.
BANG & OLUFSEN BEOPLAY M5 REVIEW
My final inclusion to my 3 speaker multiroom setup is this Beoplay M5 for my bedroom. A soft curved design finished in fabric give it a comfortable feel which is perfect for the bedroom. Connect this speaker via bluetooth to your phone and play your favourite playlist whilst getting ready for work in the morning or pumping yourself up for a night out. The Beoplay M5 comes in two tonal colours Black which is actually more dark grey and neutral which appears light grey.
With this speaker I keep the volume pretty low and the sound is crisp and with a slight bass. Turn the volume up with a touch panel at the top of the speaker and you'll experience a heavy bass and spine tingling sound.
But don't take my word for it, try it out for yourself!
