New:

- alarm
- skip tracks from your device via Beolit 17 (but just forward, no backward)
- USB C
- faster charging
- tone touch (custom playlist via touch of the button)
- last track played

two colors:
- natural
- stone grey

if "stone grey" is the same color as on the Beoplay A1 it'll look great (only the color, the A1 still looks just ugly and stays unergonomical) Wink

Jeff:

Never trust a sociopathic megalomaniac. See companies making headphones with mics and line controls for iPhones now that the iPhone 7 has no phone jack.

The world (of technology) is ever changing.

P.S. My iDevices still have holes - I do not intend to scrap those as long as they work.

My A3 does a wonderfull job with an old iPad2.

If I will by the new H4, I am sure that I will gladly just use bluetooth ----- if my next iPhone should be without headphone jack.

What comes after that, we'll see then ;-)

regarding the remote:

Maybe (just an idea) it will be possible to pair a bluetooth remote with it. For example Essence Remote or Beoremote one BT

Did anybody try it on a Beolit 15?

Beolit 15 or 17? Did you actually try to pair a bluetooth remote with it?

Will be interesting to hear from someone, who has compared the 15 and the 17.

Maybe that will justify the change?

John o' Manchester, where are you?

I'M HERE! Thanks for that. I found this post by chance looking through the forum to see what people think of the new BeoLit 17. 

 

I've been with B&O for 10 years now, probably about time I signed up to a BeoWorld account!

I was a bit delayed thanks to getting the BeoLit 17's a bit late and then my first upload was restricted due to copyright on a piece of music. Got there in the end.

Went to try it today.

Looks very nice without the compartment.

Didn't test sound, only wanted to test the app.

Set an alarm. Waited. Did not play anything at alarm time. No-go for me Sad

Leogoeswild, you weren't interested in the sound?

That's always a fear with these kind of devices. But, let's face it, who really is going to setup a BeoLit 17 as an alarm? Too big for your bedside table? And wouldn't you need to set it up every day or is there a repeat option?

I have a DAB radio alarm and, occasionally, the DAB signal goes down. When that happens, it's supposed to display a loud audio beep instead of the radio, to wake you up. However, there's being the odd occasion where it plays silence: nothing. So you're supposed to wake up to a low hiss or similar!

I guess it must be very very hard for todays engineers with this absolutely new thingy called "electronics" to build an alarm clock that works... reliable. Big Smile
