      Throw away product though v good sound

      I bought this speaker some 2 years ago and enjoyed very much its very good sound quality though the only problem i had was poor for low light conditions marking I bought this speaker some 2 years ago and enjoyed very much its very good sound quality though the only problem i had was poor for low light conditions marking of control buttons. I had left the speaker for say 3 months in a draw and one day i heard its ting tong sound when the power goes on or off, it went on and off for several minutes no stopping, i thought the battery was low so connected to the power supply no the battery indicator soon turned green, since then the speaker would spontaneously start doing ting tong for hrs which drove me nuts had to put it into the garage. Also i could not not play any music as every 3-5 minutes it would switch itself off with the ting tong sound. Since the warranty expired i took it to a Bang & Olufsen shop and asked whether it could be repaired, The sales person informed me that these speakers do not get repaired if anything goes wrong it is either replaced with a new one if the warranty is still valid or thrown away as rubbish it outside the warranty. So we have a Danish company making seemingly high quality gadgets which when broken down, i do not think i have done anything to it, are throw away like plastic straws or shopping bags, rubbish. Not very environmentally friendly philosophy by B&O in a country proud of environmental protection stance. I would never have bought this speaker had i been informed of such policy. The potential buyers should be warned that there is throw away policy by B&O for this product, and I suspect it applies to other products by them too, if anything goes wrong.

      Amazing And Immersive

      This is an amazing portable bluetooth speaker. It's sound quality is amazing with crisp notes and heavy bass. It might be small, but it's volume can easily fill This is an amazing portable bluetooth speaker. It's sound quality is amazing with crisp notes and heavy bass. It might be small, but it's volume can easily fill any mid-large room. It doesn't have too wide of a sound stage, and it can be adjusted through the application. The best way to enjoy it is to distance it away enough from you to be able to experience its best bass and clarity. There is a certain sweet spot but you can't be too close to it. However, updates from the speaker can take up to 1 hour to download and you can't exit the application or the whole thing will restart. You will also need to be playing music on the speaker as leaving it idle will cause it to shut down by itself and cancel the update... but all in all, an amazing speaker that is definitely worth its price.
