Danish luxury audio brand Bang & Olufsen have incorporated Google Assistant2 into their Beosound 1 and Beosound 2 smart speakers. The conical body of Beosound 1 and Beosound 2 hovers slightly above the surface, releasing thumps of bass from beneath. At the top, which is slightly open, the speaker driver plays downwards into an acoustical lens, creating an evenly distributed spherical sound profile. To make sure that the Google Assistant can hear commands through the wall of sound coming from the speakers, B&O’s sound engineers have built advanced acoustic echo-cancelling technology and five microphones into the aluminium structure that constantly analyses which sounds come from the speaker and which are commands from the consumer. Bang &
Olufsen is available from Illusion in Urb. Guadalcántara (www.e-illusion.es).
