Bang & Olufsen launches BeoSound Moment

BeoSound Moment introduces a new, intelligent feature that adapts one’s listening patterns and suggests music or radio programs that fit with the relevant day of the week and the time of day. The advanced PatternPlay feature automatically memorizes musical preferences and makes listening experience both familiar and explorative.

Bang & Olufsen launched the BeoSound Moment, said to combine access to digital music with a new simplicity and playful creativity. BeoSound Moment makes it easy for the whole family to collect, discover and share favorite music.

The top of the new BeoSound Moment is a detachable and double-sided interface that allows for two different listening experiences.

One side is an aluminum interface with a touch screen for engaging interaction. This is where music lovers can browse the online music catalogue, their favorite playlists and share their music collection.

The wooden side is designed for one-touch access to exactly the sound experience that fits the daily rhythm. The panel of touch-sensitive oak allows users to have their favorite music flowing from speakers with just one touch on the wooden wheel.

The advanced PatternPlay feature automatically memorizes musical preferences and makes listening experience both familiar and explorative.

Over time, BeoSound Moment will gradually start to know tastes in music, and be able to play what is most likely wanted to be heard, without even having to ask.

The music presented by PatternPlay stems from user’s own preferred favorite artists and playlists plus an extensive online catalogue of music, with access to more than 35 million songs, supplied by global music streaming service Deezer. One touch and the music flows according to personal preferences. Users can activate PatternPlay directly, with one touch, on the oak panel.

The aluminum interface displays another new feature of BeoSound Moment, the MoodWheel. EA single touch on the multi-colored MoodWheel activates an automatically generated playlist defined by the finger’s position on the wheel. The closer to the center of the wheel, the more familiar the music. In the very middle of the MoodWheel the music will be picked from lists of favorites only, whereas the outer parameter of the circle tempts the listener with musical adventures of associated music from the online catalogue of songs.

The MoodWheel is divided into a color gamut that ranges from blue to red to yellow. Combined, these two dimensions on the intuitive MoodWheel offer limitless possibilities for defining the selection of music.

BeoSound Moment is compatible with the whole Bang & Olufsen range of wireless and wired quality speakers that will create an impressive sound experience in your home.

“With BeoSound Moment we are bringing back one-touch access to music in a luxuriously simple manner. BeoSound Moment gives cloud-based music a physical place in the living space. It is easily accessible and caters for the composite needs of the family – whether you want one-touch access to your music or whether you want to browse your collection. BeoSound Moment brings it together and gives you exactly that”, says Marie Kristine Schmidt, VP for brand, design and marketing at Bang & Olufsen.
