Bang & Olufsen has just unveiled the BeoSound Moment, an intelligent and unique wireless music system that incorporates your own music library and many music services into one. Plus, it features the world’s first touch-sensitive wood interface, that will become your single entry point to your music. It is all about making the limitless access to digital music, much more simple and creative.

In terms of design, Bang & Olufsen is known for having some of the best designed products, the BeoSound Moment is no different. The top of the device is a detachable and double-sodded interface, it allows for you to choose from two different listening experiences. The first is an aluminum interface with touch screen that can be used for interaction. On the display you can browse the endless online music catalog, as well your playlists and you can share your music collection. The aluminum interface also contains the innovative MoodWheel, simply express your mood via the colors and BeoSound Moment will find the perfect music to match. You touch the colorful click wheel to do this and the farther you are away from the center the more unfamiliar the music will be, while if you click the center it will only pick from your favorite songs. The colors range from melancholic blue over a passionate red zone to an energetic yellow area.


The other option is an insanely awesome wooden side, specially made of Oak, that gives you one-touch access. You simply do one touch to the wooden wheel and the music begins to play, you can also control volume on this wooden click wheel. This is the first time in the world that a wood interface has been made touch-sensitive, to say the least I am very eager to test this out.

You are probably wondering how the BeoSound Moment is intelligent, and this is through a feature called Pattern Play. After a week or a day the Moment beings to learn and will memorize your musical preferences, this makes your listening experience both familiar and explorative. Overtime, like with making a friend, it will learn and it will know what you want to listen too without even having to select it. The Moment can pull from your own library, Spotify, or even Deezer.


The BeoSound Moment will be landing exclusively in Bang & Olufsen stores as of January 30, 2015. The Moment will cost $2795 in the US, EUR 2195, DKK 16.995, and GBP 1.795. This price also includes 12 months of prepaid Deezer Premium+. The device is compatible with Bang & Olufen’s entire line of wired and wireless speakers, and it can work with other brands as well. I cannot wait to check out the BeoSound Moment and I think it is one of the most exciting products announced at the 2015 CES. Stay Tuned To NJTechReviews For More Coverage Of The 2015 Consumer Electronics Show!

BeoSound Moment, the intelligent and playful music system that matches your mood

BeoSound Moment is an intelligent and intuitive wireless music system that integrates your music collection and services into one. Experience the world’s first touch-sensitive wood interface and enjoy your new single point of entry to the world of music.

CES – January 2015

Bang & Olufsen’s BeoSound Moment is all about combining the limitless 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 your favourite music.

Navigating on wood

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 elegant aluminium interface with a delicate touch screen for engaging interaction. This is where music lovers can browse the endless online music catalogue, their favourite playlists and share their music collection.

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

Intelligent PatternPlay

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

Over time, BeoSound Moment will gradually start to know your taste in music, and be able to play what you most likely want to hear, without you even having to ask. Just like friendship, it only gets better with time.

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

The intuitive MoodWheel

The aluminium interface displays another new feature of BeoSound Moment, the innovative MoodWheel. Express your mood and BeoSound Moment will find the perfect sound track to match it. A single touch on the multi-coloured MoodWheel activates an automatically generated playlist defined by your finger’s position on the wheel. The closer to the centre of the wheel, the more familiar the music. In the very middle of the MoodWheel the music will be picked from your lists of favourites only, whereas the outer parameter of the circle tempts the listener with musical adventures of associated music from the vast online catalogue of songs.

The MoodWheel is divided into a colour gamut that ranges from melancholic blue over a passionate red zone to an energetic yellow area. Combined, these two dimensions on the intuitive MoodWheel offer limitless possibilities for defining your 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.

“As a modern, cloud based music system, BeoSound Moment will offer software updates with new features and improvements. We have prepared a firm software update roadmap for BeoSound Moment including the deployment of a very compelling multi-room experience that encompasses both television and other audio products planned for Summer 2015”, says Marie Kristine Schmidt Vice President, Brand, Design & Marketing Bang & Olufsen.

BeoSound Moment will be available exclusively at Bang & Olufsen stores as of January 30, 2015 in selected countries where both Bang & Olufsen and the Deezer music service are available.

Recommended street price EUR 2195/DKK 16.995/GBP 1.795/USD 2.795 – incl. 12 months of prepaid Deezer Premium+.
