It’s been at least a year since I’ve seen a new portable Bluetooth speaker that wasn’t some half-hearted rehash of the millions that came before. But this little B&O number—it’s something.
Bang and Olufsen is usually best known for audio equipment that costs more than your car. But now, it's decided to create something that normal people can afford—its first ever portable Bluetooth speaker.
We can all be a little OCD about our music sometimes. We want to listen to just the right thing, and we're happy to go search through our phones or computers to find it, then connect it to our stereo, and play it. Other times, we simply want to put some music on. Something we like, and if it's not easy, we're not…
Spotify is getting into the hardware game. The company is teaming up with a slew of great audio companies to bake Spotify right into Wi-Fi connected speakers.

Bang & Olufsen, venerable purveyor of luxury AV products from Denmark, just fired this handsome 27-inch diameter speaker disk into the world. It kind of looks like it could be used to communicate with similar dishes across down. It can't, but it can play music from your DLNA device wirelessly.

B&O's products have such an air of wealth to them, I'm surprised more owners aren't killed each year. Their latest home-music system comes in at $3,350, and streams music from PCs, network servers, hard drives, other wireless devices and from over 13,000 internet radio stations.
Super-mega luxury electronics purveyor Bang & Olufsen has a new headphone set out—and it's got an i-suffix, so you know who they're trying to grab! The EarSet 3is have a microphone, phone/volume controls, and are moderately shiny.
In today's Remainders, a buncha dreamers: too many people read too much into a fake Apple tablet ad; DARPA, having loved Avatar, casts about for 3D surveillance; a new B&O TV that will cost more than $10,000, and more.
I go through the world marveling at the objects around us—from lamp posts to toothbrushes to buildings to sailboats—looking for details, craftsmanship, function, beauty, and purpose. If you know someone nutters like that, here are some gift ideas:

No one will be mistaking the Bang and Olufsen Beo5 for another remote anytime soon, thanks to its distinctive form factor and features. The Beo5 sports a touchscreen on top and an array of buttons arranged in a circle below. What makes this thing special, besides the obvious design, is that it is fully programmable to…
Bang and Olufsen, that Danish designer that loves to charge way too much for oftentimes oddly designed electronics, is really living up to their reputation with the new Beolab 3 speakers. These portable computer speakers pump out 250 watts of power in 180 degrees, which is impressive. The look is, well, OK, I guess,…
Apparently Bang & Olufsen didn't get the memo that people aren't really buying CDs anymore. Their Soprano Music Trunk is a big piece of furniture that can hold 480 CDs in its two dozen drawers. It has a built-in Beosound 3000 CD player and a couple of Beolab 3 speakers.
