This is because even after 10 years of launch, the Beoplay A9 is one of the most popular speakers from the brand.
However, this is no ordinary celebration as they have partnered with renowned artists to launch limited edition covers for the Beoplay A9 under “ART OF A9” covers. Just like every other thing about the brand, these covers are also premium, classy, and expensive. So let’s explore everything there is about them:
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A9 Speaker
Before we talk about the new limited-edition covers for the Beoplay A9, it is vital to discuss the Beoplay A9 speaker so that the users can get complete clarity. From its design to its sound quality, everything about the Beoplay A9 is entirely unique, and most of you might have never seen a speaker like this.
The Unique Design
Simply by looking at the Beoplay A9, you will never be able to guess that it is a speaker. In terms of design, the speaker looks a lot like an art canvas; maybe that is why Bang & Olufsen decided to partner with artists to make limited edition covers for it.
It has a circular design with wooden stands to support it. No matter where you put it, the speaker will definitely attract eyes and enhance the room’s overall ambiance. It comes in five different color options: Gold Tone, Black, White, Bronze Tone, and Brass Tone. So it doesn’t matter what kind of room it is, the speaker will go perfectly with it.
The stand on which the speaker rests is made of natural oak, and then the Kvadrat wool covers the speaker. From top to bottom, this speaker just radiates class.
It has seven drivers, including an 8’ woofer and two ¾” tweeters. The speaker can deliver a room-filling sound, and you can also do a lot of customizations with the Bang & Olufsen companion app. It also has support for Google Assistant for hands-free operations.
