The Beoplay A2 Active is a high-end portable speaker from Bang & Olufsen, based on their popular A2 speaker. What makes this Active edition different from the A2 is its dust and splash proof protection. It is designed to be taken wherever you go.
While reviewing the speaker we decided to hit the road and take it with us on an adventure a beach south of Sydney in Australia. While doing so we found the quality of sound to be one of the best we’ve experienced from a portable speaker and battery life to be long lasting for a wireless product.
The speaker itself is made from aluminium and comes with two canvas straps which encouraged us to carry the speaker. The choice of aluminium not only gives the speaker a premium look and finish that we expect from Beoplay, it improves the quality of sound. Even at high volume the quality of sound always remained clear and did not distort.
What We Love
We ask ourselves what is the one feature we love most.
The quality of sound. It produces clear high-quality sound, even at high volume and I felt the quality of the audio wasn’t compromised. – Ben
The changeable straps. It comes with two straps which can be easily swapped over for the style you like. – James
