B&O Beoplay M3

 

B&O Beoplay M3 review: Premium design and audio, plus some smarter features too, but it doesn't have a microphone for voice control.

Excellent sound quality ; Beautifully designed ; Spotify Connect, Google Cast and Apple AirPlay ; Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connected

No built-in microphone for voice control ; Mono speaker only ; Expensive

A relatively pricey speaker that offers premium design and audio quality with decent connected features. It lacks stereo, however, and could benefit from a microphone for future-proofed voice controls.

B&O Play Beoplay M3

 

The B&O Play Beoplay M3 multi-room speaker delivers powerful bass for its size, sometimes at the expense of overall balance in the mix.

Rich bass response and powerful overall audio performance. Sleek, minimal design. Streams via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.

Bass can overwhelm mix at times, and digital signal processing can squash dynamics. No playback or track navigation controls.

The drivers inside the Beoplay M3 actually sound great—it's that DSP that becomes problematic at times. Many listeners will enjoy the rich bass response it brings out of mixes, but it isn't an accurate sound signature, and at high volumes, dynamics get...

B&O Beoplay M3 review

 

Sleek and simple multi-room

Spotify Connect, Google Cast, AirPlay and Bluetooth support ; Voice control via Google Home ; Looks great

Mono only ; Comparatively expensive

A great sounding mono speaker with support for every major streaming protocol, but it's a shame there's no stereo pair option.

B&O Beoplay M3 review: A small multi-room powerhouse

 

Bang & Olufsen's most affordable multi-room speaker is a strong value.

Rich, deep bass and a wide soundstage ; Supports Chromecast and Apple Play as well as Bluetooth ; Minimalistic design and solid build quality

Monaural speaker, you’ll need to buy a second M3 for stereo ; No Spotify Connect functionality ; Expensive compared to competing products

Thanks to the plethora of connection options, minimalistic design, and rich bass-heavy sound, the B&O Beoplay M3 is an excellent choice for anyone interested in building a multi-room speaker system for their home. But, as it’s more expensive than many...

B&O Beoplay M3 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The B&O Beoplay M3 has premium Scandinavian styling, with blended lamb's wool or 'pearl blasted, anodized aluminium' interchangeable covers. It's also claimed to have 'rich and authentic Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound'. So did this speaker impress out...

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay M3 Review

 

The speaker had the highest audio quality during our tests.

It doesn’t have voice-control capability.

If you are serious about audio quality, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay M3 is the best wireless speaker for less than $400.

Beoplay M3 im Test: Wie gut ist der neue AirPlay-Lautsprecher von B&O?

 

B&O hat uns schon mehrfach mit kabelfreien Multiroom-Lautsprechern verzückt. Mit dem Beoplay M3 wächst das Lineup um ein preislich gesehen einsteigerfreundlicheres Modell. Aber leidet der Klang unter dem Preisdruck? Wir haben das Produkt getestet und...

schickes Design, sehr guter Klang

nur mono, nicht mit anderen M3 koppelbar

Optisch elegant und dennoch nicht langweilig, wie man es eben von Bang & Olufsen gewohnt ist, macht sich der M3 in beinahe jedem Ambiente gut. Klanglich gibt es im Vergleich zu anderen Mono-Lautsprechern dieses Formats praktisch nichts auszusetzen....

Multiroom: Beoplay M5 & M3 – snygga cylindrar fyllda med bas

 

Med Chromecast, AirPlay, Spotify Connect och Bluetooth kan det väl knappast gå snett? Mycket med Beoplays M-serie imponerar, men installationen lämnar en del att önska.

Grymt snygg design, främst Beoplay M5. ; Riktigt bra ljud. ; Chromecast built-in.

Krånglig installation. ; Saknar möjlighet till stereokoppling. ; Simpel app utan inbyggda streamingtjänster.

B&O PLAY Beoplay M3

 

Met de Beoplay M3 betreedt B&O PLAY de wereld van multiroom. En ze doen het nog goed ook.

Veel opties voor streaming; Analoge ingang voor gebruik met video; Tone Touch

Soms te veel bas; Geen Spotify Connect
