Bang & Olufsen has put on the market its new model of wireless Bluetooth speaker baptized as BeoPlay M3, a team below the BeoPlay M5 that we have seen and that maintains the iconic design of all the products of the Nordic signature.
A speaker that we can use alone or together with other speakers of its multiroom range and that has an oval shape covered in part of fabric. A body that serves to accommodate three tweeters, a driver for media and a 5-inch woofer and features that we now go over.
The BeoPlay M3 is the most compact member of the family of wireless home speakers and has been designed by the designer Cecilie Manz to conjugate with the brand’s hardware offer design and sound quality.
With an oval shape the BeoPlay M3 is made of rigid polymer to accommodate the acoustic chamber, while a softer polymer at the base of the speaker provides greater stability and separation from the surface on which it is located. At the same time offers an interchangeable cover that allows the speaker to adapt to the decoration of our home. The front cover comes in two possible finishes : a mix of premium wool with acoustic transparency from Kvadrat, or anodized pearlized aluminum.
The BeoPlay M3 offers the possibility to transmit music directly from your mobile or tablet to the speaker through the Bluetooth connection or if you prefer to connect the speaker to your wireless network to configure the multiroom function. With this system we can play music on as many B & O PLAY or Bang & Olufsen multiroom speakers as we have at home and have control of all through the B & O application of our smartphone.
