Making access to music as simple as possible, Bang & Olufsen introduces Beoremote Halo: the new remote control that plays music, podcasts, and internet radio stations with a single touch.
The new addition to Bang & Olufsen’s portfolio of high-end loudspeakers, Beoremote Halo is at once a highly functional remote control and a sculptural object in its own right. A crafted aluminium ring, which appears to float in mid-air, encircles a discrete console; it can be mounted on the wall like a piece of art or stand on its own, allowing users to move the product freely throughout the home. When approaching Beoremote Halo, the display screen illuminates, allowing the user to choose their favourite music or radio. Controlling the volume offers a luxurious tactile experience, where the solid aluminium ring provides subtle haptic feedback as the volume is raised or lowered.
Beoremote Halo comes with four favourites buttons, allowing users to access their favourite music with a simple tap of the finger. This one-touch approach to music has been core to Bang & Olufsen’s DNA for more than 80 years. The favourites buttons also allow users to switch seamlessly between TuneIn, Spotify, or Deezer. The display clearly identifies the content being played and also shows a list of connected devices, allowing users to control their multiroom experience. To turn off all the music in the home, users simply press and hold the standby button.
“It should be just as easy to access the music in your home as switching on the lights. So we wanted to give our customers the convenience of a physical device, so they can easily start the music in their home without using their smartphones”, says Bang & Olufsen SVP of Product Management Christoffer Poulsen.
Beoremote Halo (AED 4,250 for the table version and 4,320 for the wall-mounted version) comes in natural, brass-tone and bronze-tone anodised aluminium. It is is now available at Bang & Olufsen stores in the region. It is designed to pair with any Beolab speaker, such as Beolab 90, Beolab 50, Beolab 18, Beosound Shape as well as a wide portfolio of the multiroom speaker range.
