Few brands have succeeded in hitting the pinnacle of both design and performance, Bang & Olufsen is one of them. The Danish company is famed for both sides of the equation and it’s not hard to see why.
We might expect that any speaker boasting the best sound technology available for the home would look purposefully high-tech, with blinking lights and equalising knobs dominating the face. Incorrect. Bang & Olufsen ensure that at the very least their speakers are anonymous, and normally benefit a room visually. As you already know, at OPUMO we like to keep things simple and what’s more simple than black? We’ve picked five of our favourite Bang & Olufsen products and it just so happens that they’re all black…
One of the brand’s most recognisable creations, the Beoplay A9 Speaker is a wireless, three-legged device. This unorthodox design is characterised by a large circular module which is made up of one woofer, two midrange speakers and two tweeters that together provide incredible depth of sound. Touch and motion controls finish the futuristic make up of the Beoplay A9.
The Beoplay P2 Portable Speaker is the portable bluetooth speaker to end all portable speakers. Durable thanks to the sleek pearl-blasted aluminium construction and giving top-level sound quality with a woofer and tweeter, it also lasts a solid 10 hours of playtime so you needn’t worry about your moment coming to an unexpected end.

Offering a frequency range of 43-22,000 Hz, you’ll be hard pushed to find something that the crafty M3 can’t handle. This wireless speaker has the power to fill multiple rooms with rich, authentic sound without being an imposing presence in the room.
P2’s older brother packs a hefty punch in a portable package. This small, powerful speaker offers True360 Signature Sound which has no problem in filling a room with high-fidelity sound. Crafted from a pearl-blasted aluminium grill and premium quality leather strap so that you can carry the beating heart of the party.
Promising a range of sound that we’d be pleased to find in our home sound systems, Bang & Olufsen’s Black E8 2.0 Earphones are at the peak of wireless earphones. 16 hours of playtime per charge means that even if you forget the box you won’t be caught stranded. Easy touch controls give you complete freedom over your favourite playlists on the move and, obviously, they look amazing
