Named after the year of its release like the two speakers before it, the Beolit 17 pushes to deliver the quality that you expect to find from a company like B&O. Its design features a mix of pearl-blasted aluminium and robust polymer for both durability and visual presence It promises to deliver up to an impressive 240 watts of power, giving it a strong audible footprint for whatever room you place it in. Despite the amount of power it packs, it also promised to provide up to 24 hours of listening on a single charge.
It charges via USB Type-C to allow for quick and efficient charging and featuring a slew of options, such as a customizable one-touch connect button that can be personalized using the Beoplay app. It puts out 360-degree omnidirectional sound, allowing you to fill an entire room regardless of where you place it.
Being that it comes from B&O, that means it also comes with a pretty hefty price tag. The Beolit 17 will set you back $499. Thankfully , if it’s anything like its predecessors, it may actually be worth it.
