Bang & Olufsen's BeoSound Moment is an intelligent and playful music system with a unique, touch-sensitive wood interface.
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 aluminium interface with a touch screen for engaging interaction. This is where music lovers can browse the online music catalogue, their favourite playlists and share their music collection.
The wooden side is designed for one-touch access to the sound 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.
BeoSound Moment introduces an 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 PatternPlay feature automatically memorizes your musical preferences and makes your listening experience familiar. 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.
The music presented by PatternPlay stems from your own preferred favourite artists and playlists plus an online catalogue of music, with access to more than 35 million songs, supplied by global music streaming service Deezer.
The aluminium interface displays another new feature of BeoSound Moment, the MoodWheel. 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 online catalogue of songs.
The MoodWheel is divided into a colour gamut that ranges from melancholic blue over a red zone to a 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.
The system 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.
