Premium sound designed for sharing
The BeoPlay A2 Active Speaker delivers the signature Bang and Olufsen sound in all conditions. With powerful, full range drivers and an audio output of 180 watts, these speakers produce the signature, premium B&O sound. The A2 Active allows for multiple DJs, so up to eight people at a time can connect and share their music. The True360 feature means the sound disperses in every direction, meaning the sound quality is maintained no matter where your BeoPlay A2 Active is positioned. You can also connect two BeoPlay speakers together with wireless stereo pairing, to increase the distance your music can travel, filling a venue and maintaining the perfect acoustic atmosphere.

Add soundtracks to your adventures
The BeoPlay A2 Active has been specially designed to withstand the roughness of the outdoors, while still maintaining its sleek and smooth appearance. The A2 Active is both dust and splash resistant, so you can go outdoor exploring or simply lounge in the garden while still enjoying brilliant audio quality. The A2 Active Speaker is a lightweight unit at only 1.1kg, making it especially portable. It also comes with two interchangeable, short straps supplied in a random selection of colours. This speaker has an impressive battery life of up to 24 hours on a single charge. Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay products each have a smart charging system, so the charge speed adapts to the ability of the USB cable used. The charge time for the A2 Active is less than three hours so it won’t be long until it’s ready for another full day of playback. 

Customise your experience with the BeoPlay app 
The Beoplay app allows you to personalise your compatible B&O product with a name and colour. You can customise your music experience for your current mood using ToneTouch. The app also allows you to quickly set up wireless stereo pairing so you can play music from two speakers in stereo or ambient. All these features work with the BeoPlay A2 Active, enhancing your overall audio experience whether at home or on the move.
