Taking the portable and convenient luxury of a wireless speaker into the great outdoors, the Bang & Olufsen Beosound Explore Waterproof Outdoor Wireless Speaker in green is a rugged, sand and weatherproof audio option for weekend warriors and extreme explorers of all stripes.

Waterproof & Submersible

With an IP67-rating, the Beosound Explore can withstand rain and sand quite easily, but it can also handle being submerged into water. Whether you drop it into a stream by accident or plunge it under to wash it off, the speaker can handle being under up to 3.3' of water for up to 30 minutes.

Powerful Sound

The 360° sound of the Beosound Explore is ideal for letting everyone in your adventuring party enjoy the music. Music is pumped out of two 1.8" full range drivers and powered by two 30W class D amplifiers.

The Beosound Explore supports Bluetooth 5.2 for wireless streaming of music, podcasts, or audio books. To preserve battery life, you can also use the USB Type-C port to play audio over a wired connection.

Fast Pairing

When out in the wilds of mother nature, there's no time to fiddle with Bluetooth pairing. This is why Bang & Olufsen gave this wireless speaker the ability to fast pair to a variety of devices. Using either MFi for Apple products, Google Fast Pair for Android, or Microsoft Swift Pair for Windows, you can easily pair to the Beosound Explore with a tap.

Multipoint Compatible

With multipoint support, you can pair up to two devices to the Beosound Explore and switch between them seamlessly.

Bang & Olufsen App

The mobile Bang & Olufsen app gives you access to EQ presets and gives you the ability to customize your own. It also gives you a precise status of the speaker's battery life.

Bang & Olufsen Beosound Explore Reviews

Early days, but very promising

My goal in acquiring a brace of these speakers -- in order to make a stereo pair -- was to allow me to listen to music while sitting in my garden. So far, I'm very pleased with the results; I've listened to some music (which, as various reviews have suggested, defaults to a somewhat bass-heavy roominess, but which can be tuned using the B&O app) and to parts of an Audible book. In both uses the speakers were very competent, and managed the 'infinite' sound field of the garden very well. As you'd guess, they are not noticeably directional, which is ideal for my purposes. Maybe one day we'll even have an outdoor party again, and these speakers will step up to provide a soundtrack; they certainly are loud enough -- I was conscious of not wanting to disturb my neighbors' in their back gardens, and kept the speakers (which, control-wise, act as one when stereo-paired) at a moderate level. I'm not fully in synch with the software yet -- it seems that when I turn the speakers off and later turn them on again, the stereo pairing is lost, but I don't think this is intended behaviour so I'll work out what I'm doing wrong. The final piece of the puzzle is getting Roon to recognize the Bluetooth connection as an audio output option so I can play everything I own over the B&Os; I'm awaiting the arrival of a Bluetooth dongle which, according to online lore, will let Roon 'discover' another option, and solve this problem. Fingers crossed. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase -- they're very solid in feel, good to look at, and startlingly small. The colour match for the metal body, nylon straps and carabiner is remarkably accurate and gives a sense of attention to detail which I always find satisfying.
