Bang & Olufsen unveils luxury 4GB music player

updated 10:10 am EDT, Fri July 13, 2007

B and O Beosound 6

Luxury home theater producer Bang & Olufsen today committed itself further to portable music with the Beosound 6. Instead of the Danish firm's past practice of relying on SD cards for storage on earlier Beosound models, the 6 includes 4GB of built-in flash and a more conventional sync process through USB. Less conventional is the inclusion of the company's A8 premium earbuds that promise good over-the-ear sound without the bulk of headphones. Battery life is rated at a complete 24 hours.

Its minimal shape is said to be based on last year's Samsung YP-Z5 and includes a customized version of that player's software, which offers playback for MP3 and WMA music. Bang & Olufsen has only briefly alluded to the player on its pages and has not officially announced details, but plans to ship the Beosound 6 in the summer for about 625 ($862) bundled with both the A8 and a deluxe leather case.
