Even though iPods and iPads has come a long way, to enjoy Hi-Fi music many of you will have to plug the device on to a speaker system.
The music files in it may be compressed to save up disk space which is a very crucial element since the memory available is limited. It won’t be much acceptable for audiophiles to compromise on audio clarity for the sake of other factors. So the only way to enjoy music in the way it is suppose to be; is by using a high end speaker having an iPod dock.
Bang and Olsufen BeoSound 8 lets you enjoy good quality music from your iPod’s. The first thing that you will notice about the device is its unique design. It looks like the letter 8 when laid horizontally.
The speakers are huge and they have a conical rear portion. Usually speakers have round or tapered design in the back, but the conical shape in Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 8 lends it a magnificent look. Since the back is conical you won’t be able to see the back portion, so the speaker appears to have a flat design if you look at it from the front.
The iPod dock sits in between the two speakers. The two big domes might seem to be connected via rectangular structure, and this structure has the iPod dock. There is a click wheel interface in the front, which is similar to the one you will find in an iPod.
The speakers can be kept in a table or it can be wall mounted. The grilles in the speaker system come in various color options too. They include everything from simple black to funky yellow.
There is a circular holding device behind the device dock. It helps to hold the iPods and even iPads in its designated position. The remote of the device is a piece of design marvel too.
It is made in such a way as to replicate the look and feel of the circular front control panel in the device. It consists of all the audio manipulation controls in it and yet it is very cute and simply stylish.
Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 8 is simply packed with features. The device can adjust its sound levels and effect based on the type of room in which it is in. If the Beosound application is downloaded and installed in your phone then the device can be used to browse through internet channels and stream music.
In case you don’t have an iPod/iPad the device has an auxiliary input port at its back so you can attach normal Mp3 players too to it. There is a USB connectivity option too via which you can play the audio files present in it.
The most important factor of the music system is its sound. Beosound 8 carries on the Bang & Olufsen legacy and offers some of the most amazing sound clarity that you can get from a home entertainment system.
Even if the music files are very much compressed the sound output from the speakers will be of Hi-Fi quality. The bass response of the system is also simply out standing.
Though exact price of this device in India is not available but it is expected to be expensive relative to other regular iPod/iPad docks. But if you don’t want to compromise on sound quality; then Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 8 is your best choice.
