Bang and Olufsen Emerge (Source: Google)We have all been listening to our
favorite songs on Bang and Olufsen’s speakers for some decades and with their
attractive and innovative approach to the design of speakers, the company has
made a name for itself in the market. Recently they have announced their new
speaker call Emerge. It has a book form shape which was made during the
announcement of the speakers, with side form panel covers and the logo printed
on the spine just like a book.
Bang and Olufsen Speakers This is a change from the company’s previous designs
some of which have been huge, hulking form factors, that typically stands out
from the ambience of a room. Emerge take its inspiration from Ikea’s lamp style
structured Symfonisk speakers helping them blend with the ambience and structure
of a room.
B&O says the Emerge speaker?s small form-factor shouldn?t make it a slouch in
the sound quality department, however. ?The vision for Beosound Emerge was to
create the slimmest speaker possible that could still deliver full range,
ultra-wide sound despite its size through its revolutionary driver
configuration,? says the company?s head of product management Christoffer
Poulsen. Internally there?s a triple-driver configuration consisting of a 4-inch
woofer, a 1.45-inch mid-range, and a 0.6-inch tweeter. Source: The Verge
In terms of connectivity, it supports all forms of connection, be it wireless
connection or physical connection such as Spotify Connect Support, Bluetooth
5.0, Airplay, Chromecast, in built microphone for Google Assistant, line
in/optical jack, Ethernet, USB-C port for power. Also a bonus feature, is the
pairing of two Emerge devices together to get that stereo effect.
Bang and Olufsen uses the same connectivity as it recent Beosound level, but if
outdate it can be replaced.
The Emerge is going on European market today priced at ?599 for the black model,
while the gold model which has an oak wood cover costs slightly more at ?749. It
will be launched globally this Autumn.
