Bang & Olufsen Beosound Explore

Camping is getting more and more popular here in Hong Kong – but that term means different things to different people. Some will pack as little as they can, happy to enjoy the trip based on what nature has to offer, while others will pack every possible tool and gadget “just in case”. For this latter group, the Beosound Explore portable Bluetooth speaker from Bang & Olufsen is going to be perfect.

The solid Beosound Explore speaker has recently been enhanced with two new colour options – Navy and Chestnut – in addition to the existing Black Anthracite, Grey Mist, and Green. Measuring just 81 mm wide, 124 mm tall, and 81 mm deep and weighing just 631 g, the wireless speaker can easily be clipped on a backpack or grabbed by the strap.

With a rubber base and aluminium shell, the Beosound Explore is designed to be durable and handle the sorts of abuse seen in hiking and camping situations, and the IP67 dust and water resistance rating ensures that the speaker is fully weatherproofed in the event of an accident or an unexpected downpour. The 27-hour battery life is another advantage huge advantage for the adventurous. As for the sound – while the unit itself is very small, it delivers shockingly loud and clear audio with its dual 1.8 full-range drivers.
