Bang & Olufsen Beosound Explore review: Canny design?

About the size of a tin can, this portable speaker is made from aluminum, and is rather cannily designed to output sound through its full cylindrical shape. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
On-body controls make for easy adjustment, while Bluetooth 5.2 and fast-connectivity mean any device can quickly connect. There's app control & adjustment too. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Its portable size is one thing, but the addition of a carabiner means you can easily clip the product onto anything you so wish. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There's up to 27 hours of battery life per charge, with a USB-C port to the 'rear' for top-ups when needed. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
B&O's answer to its lack of a 360-degree portable product does exaclty what it sets out to achieve. Thing is, the Beosound A1 2nd Gen is simply better... (image credit: Pocket-lint)
