Bang & Olufsen have launched the 2020 upgrade of the powerful and portable Beolit Bluetooth speaker, its heritage dating back to 1939. The new Beolit 20 retains the trademark big sound capabilities - beautifully housed in a desirable and easily transportable package - but with vastly improved battery life, integrated wireless Qi charging capability on its top shelf and a subtly updated design.
Beolit 20 retains the iconic silhouette of the Beolit series, which was designed in collaboration with Cecilie Manz (2012), whilst introducing a number of design updates to make day to day usage of the speaker even more pleasurable. The original hole pattern has been reimagined with a modern design. Repeated angled lines and spiraling corners give a distinct and dynamic look whilst optimizing acoustic performance with 45% air transparency for clear, refined sound. The height and curvature of the top shelf has been revised to give multiple placement options when charging smartphones, the buttons made more durable and a vegetable tanned leather strap adds the perfect finishing touch.
