By Paul Joseph

There’s no shortage of high-end wireless speakers on the market today, but few carry the allure of aesthetic and technological quality as those produced by Danish audio experts Bang & Olufsen.

Now the brand’s affiliate company B&O Play has unveiled the Beoplay M5, all new multi -room wireless speakers built in a sleek cylindrical shape and  boastings 360- degree audio capacity that ensures an even spread of sound in all directions.

The lavish device is designed by award-winning Danish industrial designer Cecilie Manz, who also has to his credit the Beoplay A2, the Beolit 15, and Beoplay A1 model designs.

Covered in an acoustically transparent wool-blend fabric from compatriot manufacturer Kvadrat, the multi- room speaker can adjust the volume and rotate itself to a neutral position from any corner. Its top disc is made from crafted aluminium which is pearl blasted and anodized for a smooth finish and dishes out tunes and pauses music on being gently pressed.

Ensuring omnidirectional sound, the Beoplay M5 is in-built with three tweeters, a full range front-facing midrange driver and a 5-inch neodymium powered downward-firing woofer. Furthermore, it also features a built-in Chromecast, which allows users to stream songs from more than 100 music streaming services in up to 96KHz/24bit lossless.

Available in natural grey and black, the Beoplay M5 is available priced at $599.

Founded in Denmark in 1925 by Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen, Bang & Olufsen has grown to become one of the world’s most renowned designers of high-end audio products, television sets and telephones.
