I make this photo through the window ....

It shows like a very small speaker and the cheapest in the range.

Shame there's no Mozart, and hence no Airplay. I suppose it's time to give in and buy a Sonos Roam for the shower. 

Will be interesting to compare the performance with that of the A1 (2) - Explore is listed at £169.00​, compared with £200 for the A1.

The driver difference is curious - swapping the woofer & tweeter for two full range seems backwards to me. Will this replace the A1, or just sit as a cheaper addition to the line? It's getting a little crowded down there.

And now Steve knows why this has no line-in port.

Because he simply can’t take his old B&O gear outsite to the campfire in the wilderness....his smartphone will have to do the job.

Andybody had already a chance to listen to it? In the video John said that it lacks bass compared to the Beosound A1 but during the sound comparision part the Beosound Explore also doesn't seem to sound as clear/bright as the Beosound A1!? Hope that's only the recording.

I just unpacked my latest B&O. It will be great for the beach and even more at my spa bath as it fits perfect in the drink holders. Easy to operate and it sounds good. OK, it’s not the biggest base, but not the biggest speaker either. And I will not use it for party’s, but mostly for chill out music.

No hesitation when choosing colour, I love the green! So B&O.

Whenever getting new speakers from B&O, I carefully choose the music to be played first. Often something from my favourite, Jean Michel Jarre. But this time it was actually a clip from Danish radio with the four goals against Russia in Euro2020. A perfect choice for tonight. The commentators for sure didn’t hold back.

How does the Explore sound compared to the A1 or P2?
Is the Beosound Explores sound quality really as bad as many Amazon, Youtube reviews etc. are stating?

Yes, I’ve read those reviews too.

I never listened to A1 or P2, but I will comeback after some days listening with a comparison to my A2 mk1. IF I get a chance to borrow the speakers from my kids ...
