Top customer reviews
Now, onto the speaker itself. It comes in excellent packaging, which includes a small pamphlet and the speaker's charger. The design of the speaker is excellent - it really looks like the premium speaker that it is. The leather strap is premium as well. It looks good, feels good, and is useful. The speaker is a bit larger than others, but it is thin, flat, and light. There is a USB port to charge your phone from the speaker (very cool, although I haven't tested how useful this really may be yet), an auxiliary input, and a spot for B&O's proprietary charger (sorry, no micro-USB charging for this speaker). Under the speaker grille is a USB port, conceivably for software updates or maintenance.
The sound quality of the A2 is truly phenomenal. The "True 360" moniker is appropriate, as no matter where in the room you are relative to the speaker, the experience is the same. You can comfortably listen to this speaker at half-volume, jam out by turning it up a bit louder, or fill a whole house at max-volume. Turned all the way up, this speaker is incredibly impressive, sounding more like a full stereo system than the small bluetooth speaker it is. I had NO distortion at any volume level or with any song. Again, this may just be my experience based on the music I have/listen to, but regardless, there has been no distortion. Bass, treble, and mids are all accurately reproduced. Sitting in front of the speaker, there is almost a true stereo affect. Soft or loud, this speaker sounds superlative. So far, battery life has been good for me. If this ceases to be true, I'll update the review with more details.
A few minor negatives, but nothing too disturbing for me. First, the charger is proprietary and a bit bulky. Second, there is a button for volume, but not play/pause or changing songs - this can only be done on the player. Last, and most annoying, there is not a real battery indicator. Only when the battery dips below 10% will the light change from white to red, meaning that if the light is white, your battery is anywhere from 11%-100%. This is also a $400 speaker, so that can be considered a negative. However, the sound and quality of the speaker justifies this high price point for me.
So, for quick review:
- Incredible, full sound, especially for its size
- "True 360" sound means great quality at any listening angle
- Premium look/feel
- So far, good battery life
- Option to charge phone from speaker is a great concept
- Lack of some useful buttons/indicators
- Proprietary charger
Overall, I'm a huge fan of this speaker. I haven't heard one better, so if you can stomach the high price point, I'd definitely pick this up and enjoy the remarkable sound.
In addition to the BO, of course the USB port to charge iphone, the leather strap, the drivers on both sides and promised battery charge made the rest easier to decide against the T7.
I can't believe such a tin device like this BO A2 can drive that decent amount of base. I love Led Zepp and have been enjoying John Paul Jones tones in Celebration day, Mobidick, or Lemon song, without compromising Jimmy's and Bonzo's sound.
So far the battery has lasted at least 10 hrs on, I would say, 60% of the volume. But am fine with that, this is even leaving the device on to auto shut and continue using it next day.
I read reviews this won't last more than an hour with max volume, BUT lets face it, who will use this device at full volume? I tried in my backyard, and if I go beyond 70% my neighbors would complaint, and won't let me chat with my friends. If I want to have music to dance, I can turn the volume up with charger plugged, or just use my wired speakers, come on. Amazon ease my decision with that amazing price 309 compared to 399 for colored ones (I don't mind the colors, I mind the audio quality).
- The design is indeed great. Good material and premium feeling.
- Sound is OK for it's price, but not the best in its price range.
- Horrible battery life, B&O claims 24 hours battery life which is total lie. On full volume it doesn't even last an hour and on average volume around 2 hours to 3 hours.
- Bluthooth connectivity is not stable.
