When it comes remote control, the logical assumption is, it is a small device that you can pick up to control your gadgets. Well, not the Bang & Olufsen Beoremote Halo Remote Control, though. For starter, it broke the traditional of remote design by not having a candy form factor.
As you can see, Bang & Olufsen Beoremote Halo is circular and while not exceedingly huge, it is definitely not very handy. In fact, it is more like an art piece on your coffee table (Table Stand version) or the wall (for Wall Mounted version).
“Beoremote Halo gives you all the convenience of a simple user interface to operate your Bang & Olufsen music system. When you get close to Beoremote Halo, the display lights up and offers you a one button press to select your music. There is no need to use your mobile device or to pull anything out of your pocket and fiddle around trying to find the right app to get started.”
Bang & Olufsen Beoremote Halo can connect to Beosound Core for use with your Beolab speakers or Beosound Shape. It can also be connected directly to your multiform speakers too.
The Table Stand version is battery powered so it can be relocated to anywhere in the house. It can be recharge via USB-C or wirelessly with B&O Beoplay Charging Pad. The Wall Mounted version, on the other hand, is self-explanatory.
TBH, I am not sure of its real purpose if a so-called remote if is going to be rooted. Just saying… Anyways… comes with an integrated touch screen display where you will find four favorite buttons which you can set your favorite buttons for one-touch access to favorite, say, radio station.
You can learn more about tradition breaking remote over at the product page as well as pick it up for a grand price of US$900.
