Whether the Beosound Level is standing up, lying down, or hanging on the wall, the orientation can be changed whilst maintaining the same sound quality. The use of sensors that continuously monitor the orientation of the Beosound level help the speaker achieve high-quality sound regardless of position. The Digital Signal Processing (DSP) adapts the product performance in real-time for uncompromised sound, at any position, standing upright, on the wall, even when the Beosound Level is laying on the floor. As for stereo spread; uh, let’s not go there. Even when seated directly in front of it, I rarely sensed more than an occasional hint of channel separation. Yes, it’s now possible (thanks to a recent B&O software update) to combine two Levels as a stereo pair, but at a cost that strikes me as lunatic absurdity. Too true? The design of the Beosound Level has all the makings of a modern classic. Just as well, with its ... [+] sustainable design, this is one speaker that should last for many years. B&O
Equipped with two 4" woofers, one 2" full-range drive and two 3/4" tweeters, Beosound Level delivers an impressive sound experience. The Digital Signal Processing (DSP) has been specially tuned to challenge the limits of physics no matter how or where you place the product to listen to your music.

Unlike most wireless speakers, B&O has designed the Beosound Level to have a user-replaceable ... [+] battery and an electronics module that can be completely replaced when wireless technologies evolve. B&O Despite being a wireless device, and having a handle, the Beosound Level certainly isn’t a portable speaker. It weighs 3.3kg and measures 34.8 x 23 x 6.6 cm – suffice to say you won’t be carrying this out on your picnics. The Beosound Level’s magnetic charging plug and power cable are color coordinated. Flies in the ointment
They say you can never be too rich or too thin. This view from the top shows the Level to be the slimmest of them all. The battery is replaceable and can be swapped over by the user simply by removing the speaker grille. The grille is also replaceable and B&O says there will be optional covers available in a range of finishes in the future. It’s good to see a company providing a battery that can be easily replaced because no lithium-ion battery lasts forever. I don’t know of any other wireless speakers that have a user-replaceable battery.
