Amazon Prime Big Deal Days is in full swing, and even though Bang & Olufsen aren't known for affordable price tags or participating in mega-deals, you're in luck. The brilliant little B&O Beosound A1 (2nd Gen) Bluetooth speaker has a rare discount for Prime Day, with 33% off right now.

Read our B&O Beosound A1 2nd gen review
The B&O Beosound A1 (2nd Gen) may appear to be style over substance at first glance, but this model actually has a robust IP67 rating – just like many of JBL's top rugged portable speakers – making it waterproof to a depth of up to one metre.
On top of that, the speaker offers 18 hours of battery life at normal listening volumes, or up to 48 hours at a more conservative level. There's a three-mic array for operating Alexa voice controls, and set-up is straightforward using both the Amazon Alexa and Bang & Olufsen apps, too.
Most importantly, the Beosound A1 (2nd Gen) sounds great. Smaller Bluetooth speakers can often sound unbalanced and tinny, but not this one. Using the A1, voices are clear with plenty of expression, timing is snappy, and dynamics are engaging.
Rival speakers such as the JBL Charge 5 are a bit more punchy but Bang & Olufsen has succeeded in maintaining its trademark sound profile in this tiny but stylish A1 speaker. And with this fresh 33% saving at Amazon, it's definitely worth considering before the sale ends at midnight tonight...
