If you find that the updated Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A9 $3,000 price tag is not even remotely objectionable and also happens to adore Yves Saint Laurent (or simply, Saint Laurent), well, then here’s a good news. The two brands have come together to rework two of the Danish high-end audio equipment, the Beoplay A1 and Beoplay A9, and selling them to you at an even higher price. I am not even kidding. It is happening, or rather it has happened.
The Saint Laurent x Bang & Olufsen speakers are part of Saint Laurent Rive Droite, YSL’s high-end designer line with focus on Paris origins for men and women, plus accessories and more. If you haven’t already done so, you may want to check out this interesting line. There are bunch of interesting products that, as much as I love, my bank account aren’t overly enthusiastic about.
Anywho… the Beoplay A1 features a black anodized aluminum, detailed with Saint Laurent branding as well as a choice of brass/goldish button. The Beoplay A9, on the other hand, is presented with a choice of black or gold brass feet. As with the updated B&O A9, this collaborative model is also voice-enabled and the A1 fully supports Apple AirPlay.
If you are so incline, you can find the Saint Laurent x Bang & Olufsen speakers exclusively at Saint Laurent Rive Droite locations at Rue Saint Honoré in Paris as well as Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles. Prices are $460 and $4,650 for the Saint Laurent x Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A1 and Saint Laurent x Bang & Olufsen Beoplay A9, respectively.
