CLOSE YOUR EYES IN ORDER TO SEE
On a recent trip to the US, I bought Bob Dylan’s Original Mono Recordings. A complete compilation of his first eight albums in a remarkable sound quality. When I got home I spent an entire evening sitting on the floor in my living room, listening to the vinyls. It was just … you know, it’s physical what great sound does to you. A sort of whoosh when it touches you.
That sound on those records was so unique. You felt like you were actually there, at the Columbia Studios, just in front of Bob and his guitar. It was ... well. It was what music should always be like. It was true, authentic sound in all its splendour.
A soft texture. A warm touch. The surprising feel of Oslo comes from its wool cover. Selected yarns carefully woven into a specific pattern, designed by Kvadrat.
Reflection and intuition accompanied the entire work process during which Kvadrat translated their tactile knowledge to the domain of sound. Numerous hours and heaps of rough, smooth, bulky or silky weaving samples later, the fabric created is essential to the entire product experience. It appeals to the eye, the ears and your fingertips. Wool is perfect natural imperfection; it’s comfort and coziness; it’s a reassuring, basic feel. A universal material, revered through time for its resistance and the way it ages beautifully.
By a simple touch of Oslo you will truly understand the craftsmanship, the durability and the inherent quality of this product and the materials it’s made of: What you feel is what you get.
The things you cherish the most. From mere everyday basics, they grow over time, becoming your indispensable travel companions through life. How come? No one can say. You just know it when it’s there: It simply feels right.

The Vifa was clearly the best in terms of mid range and highs, with forward presentation of sound and quick response detail. In "Danger Zone", the percussion hits especially were clearest on the Vifa Oslo. The Beolit 17 had the best bass, but tended to become a little muddy at times, exaggerating the low end excessively. The Kilburn II trailed the pack but at half the price of the other two speakers, held up surprisingly well.
Sound: Absolute best sounding midrange and high end. Low end doesn't go quite low enough. Forward presentation, not especially wide soundstage. Sounds fantastic for pop, and electronic pieces. Tight sweet spot on this speaker, doesn't fill a room especially well, but great for sitting in front of.
Best build quality. The handle piece is made of what seems to be steel and feels cool to the touch. It feels incredibly well built and designed. The app is such a piece of crap you should ignore it.
The controls are poorly designed: the power button is on the back and turning the device off is kind of a chore, it requires you to hold the button for an absurd amount of time, first cycling through bluetooth pairing (WHY!?) and then watching an LED indicator change colors before turning off. Proprietary charger. You need to read a manual to use this speaker.
Sound: Very wide soundstage, blasts in all directions. Not much of a sweet spot due to 360 sound projection. Very good mids and highs but not as good as the Oslo. Extremely deep bass extension. Pendulum's Watercolour sounds great, extending deep into notes not found on other speakers. Has a bit of a 'dance hall' sound to it, due to the 360 projection of sound. Not the best speaker to sit in front of and listen to as a result. Low end can get slightly exaggerated and slightly muddy. Depending on material, this or the Oslo is best. If you like a lot of bass, you can't beat this speaker. If you prefer mid to high end, Oslo. Definitely beats out the Kilburn.
Build: Generally great build quality. Leather handle is fancy, but seems like it might not wear all that well. Excellent use of USB-C charging, extremely convenient. USB-C implementation here can even CHARGE YOUR PHONE! What a nice feature. App is okay, but buggy. At least it works.
Controls: Not bad. Power button on top is slightly weird, you have to hold the button down to turn it off, but the LED light is under your finger, so you don't know how long to press down for to turn it off. Nice to have other buttons on top including start stop buttons. Clear bluetooth pairing button.
Sound: It's much better than most cheaper speakers under say, $150. Certainly far better than a UE Boom 2 / 3. Compares unfavorably to a Sonos Play 1, 3, or 5. For most non audiophiles they'll love this speaker. Slightly muddy everything compared to the other speakers. Decent bass extension. Works well with pretty much any material. You won't get crystal clear lifelike renditions, but hey, it costs half of the other two.
Build quality: Not too shabby at this price point. Feels pretty solid, nice furry strap. It's definitely nowhere near the other two speakers, but they did a great job for HALF the price. Great looking design.
Controls: Awesome. Physical knobs. The best. It's simple to turn on and off, it's easy to adjust volume, bass, treble. Bass and treble adjustments increase mud unfortunately. Dedicated bluetooth button for pairing. No instruction manual needed. Built in power supply which is nice, no fat dongle.
Buy the Oslo if you prefer a tighter all around sound with a narrower soundstage, but great mids and highs. If you like the sound from say, a Shure IEM, you'll love this.
Buy the Beolit 17 if you prefer a wider soundstage with a dance hall feel, with deep bass extension. If you want your portable speaker to sound like it has a subwoofer, this is the one for you. The sound reminds me a bit of the Klipsch Promedia 2.1s.
Buy the Kilburn II if you aren't THAT picky and want a decent value. It's half the price of the others and maybe 70% as good sounding.
Overall for the material I listen to, the Oslo is the winner.
This is the best portable speaker that I have owned and has become my personal companion. It beat out a number from JBL, H/K, B&O, Marshall (though they are a very close second if you need loud and muscular), and Klipsch.
I cannot recommend enough.

I am a former audio dealer of mid to high-end gear
so I strive for clean sound not high impact base. The Oslo as reviewed offered ample base while still mainting a high level of audio.
The only caveat I experienced was from the app on my IPhone. Unit crashed the Bluetooth connection after changing Any of the included
features except the LED function which I was able to change without compromising the connection.
