Indoor, outdoor, anywhere

Given that it's similar in size to your trusty old toastie machine when clamped shut, you’d be forgiven for thinking the latest speaker from B&O Play - high-end audio veteran Bang & Olufsen’s lifestyle-focused offshoot - would be left wanting in the noise department. But don’t be fooled - underneath its typically Scandinavian understated-yet-stylish exterior you’ll find three Class D amplifier channels that combine for a 215W peak output, with 360-degree sound distribution. That’s more enough to keep you happy in most rooms, and thanks to the Beoplay P6’s splash resistance and 16-hour playtime, it should make a great companion for your summer holiday swims, too. On top you’ll find five flex buttons, one of which can quickly summon Siri or Google Assistant on your phone. The B&O Beoplay P6 will be available in black and natural finishes from April 23, priced at £349.
