"Even the heaviest beats are easy to carry" is the ambitious philosophy of this portable, power-packed little smart speaker.

Audio giant Bang and Olufsen is on a mission to prove that the very best things really do come in small packages with its pint-sized yet powerful Beoplay A1 Bluetooth speaker.

Weighing a mere 600g and only just spanning the palm of your hand, Beoplay A1 can blast ambient 360 sound to a peak power of 2×140 watts. With a new aluminium core sub-woofer and a powerful magnetic system and apps, Beoplay A1 can deliver a full range of sound even at low frequency levels.

If that jargon soup is a little too much for you to swallow, all you need to know is that’s more than adequate for setting up a makeshift dance-floor and having a spontaneous boogie on your upcoming summer camping trip.

While it packs a punch that’s way beyond its tiny size, Beoplay A1 can also act as a great personal speaker. Carry it in your pocket, hang it from your wrist, or set it down on your picnic blanket for easy listening wherever your adventures take you. It’s also got a built-in mic to let you use the speaker for hands-free calls, so cranking up the volume doesn’t mean you can’t stay connected.

Build-wise, Beoplay A1 is a sturdy fella with a splash and dust-resistant casing for plenty of outdoor rough and tumble. Its battery should put in a solid 24 hour shift before needing a feed by way of micro USB cable.

If you’re a long-time B&F appreciator, you’ll be unsurprised to hear that Beoplay A1 doesn’t come with a price tag to match its tiny size. This power-packed loud-mouth will set you back a cool £199. You can buy Beoplay A1 here.
