Impressive sound accessed via very simple operation and wrapped in elegant design is the essence of the new portable music player from Bang & Olufsen, BeoSound 6. BeoSound 6 is based on a robust Samsung platform with specific acoustic refinements such as the high performance on signal-to-noise. This means that the annoying noise known from many digital music players is almost absent in BeoSound 6. BeoSound 6 offers an almost minimalistic design where the front and rear sides are surrounded by a stainless steel frame. The rear side features a black soft-touch lacquered surface whereas the front side has a black 1.81 Inch TFT LCD (128 x 160 pixels) display with a simple graphical user interface and a keypad placed underneath the display. The rectangular touchpad is used for menu navigation and the surrounding keypad, made of black silicone rubber, is primarily for playback functions.
The bass boost function in BeoSound 6 used for the enhancement of bass reproduction has been optimized to the Bang & Olufsen Earphones that come with it. The dynamic full-tone loudspeakers mounted on a telescopic bar are constructed according to the open loudspeaker principle that allows you to hear a non-intrusive amount of the surrounding sound at lower volume levels. So, you are not entirely cut off from the surrounding world when wearing the Earphones.
The user experience is enhanced by the extended battery life, allowing up to 40 hours of playback – more than twice the market standard for battery life. The user can always follow the battery status, as the navigation bar indicates with a colour change when the battery needs to be charged. Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 6 portable music player measures 90.7 x 42.7 x 12.2 mm, weigh 65 g and ia compatible with OS Windows XP SP2 and for MAC iTunes BeoSound 6 plug-in needed. Included accessories- Bang & Olufsen Earphones, USB-cable, travel charger and leather bag.
