One-Touch Connect with Bang & Olufsen Play’s Beolit 17 Portable Speaker


Bang & Olufsen Play’s new Beolit 17 portable speakers bring added smarts, thanks to a one-touch connect button that the user can easily customize using the Beoplay App on their smartphone. Measuring 23 x 18.9 x 13.5 cm and weighing just 2.7kg, the new Beolit 17 is built to be enjoyed both indoors and out. It has a robust polymer top and bottom, and an anodized pearl-blasted aluminum grill with a handle crafted from premium grain leather to complete the premium feel.

Inside, the speaker houses two 35W Class D amplifiers for both bass and treble, and features one 5.5-inch long-stroke Wideband Woofer, two  4-inch Passive Bass Radiators, and three  1.5-inch Wideband Tweeters to deliver 240 watts of peak power to easily fill larger living room spaces with that classic Bang & Olufsen sound.
