Reviews around quality (5.00 of 5)

  • But once that was done, I found it has great sound quality.
  • The sound quality is excellent and, unlike some other speakers, the connection to my phone is clear and doesn't drop even when I wander to the far end of the house.
  • Sound quality is sensitive to placement - put the M5 in a corner and you'll get more bass, but not as good dispersion
  • Bottom line is that the M5 offers reasonable sound quality that doesn't make you want to get up and turn it off
  • Overall, the Bang & Olufsen M5 is expensive but has the best sound quality and is the best looking wireless speaker over Sonos and Denon

Reviews around way (5.00 of 5)

  • I like the way the M5 sounds and I that it recedes into the background
  • He'd stated that the best way to ensure a strong and consistent connection is to hook it up to your home network, but even having mine hardwired via Ethernet cable to the network, the BeoPlay app STILL doesn't see my M5 - even though I've ensured that my iPhone is connected directly to the thing via Bluetooth, and the Ethernet cable has it hardwired into my WiFi network
  • That aside, best way I can describe the sound quality would be to compare the M5 to some of the other speakers I routinely listen to
  • Flow is the best way to describe the best part and value of this speaker
  • Don't even bother playing video games with this as there's just no way to sync it

Reviews around design (5.00 of 5)

  • PROs:-beautiful design-sounds incredible-more features than Sonos including Airplay & Bluetooth connection.-omni-directional sound is better than the SONOS.-stylish metal pancake volume knob on top
  • It produces just as great quality sound, it connects with no problem, the design is modern and doesn't look like a throwback to the Mod days of the 60s (what's up with this woolly sleeve, anyway?), and the control buttons are easy to access... not buried on the underside of the speaker as is the case here
  • This is an aesthetically well-designed piece and just so pleasant to see on the table

  • PROs:-beautiful design-sounds incredible-more features than Sonos including Airplay & Bluetooth connection.-omni-directional sound is better than the SONOS.-stylish metal pancake volume knob on top
  • The app for the M5 doesn't do much beyond setup unless you utilize Google Cast (now Chromecast Built In) that evidently will facilitate stereo pairing and some other features
  • This is a great feature of what is one of the most magnificent sounding speakers I own.

Reviews around aluminum top (4.53 of 5)

  • You don’t ever need to touch the speakers as the app can be the brains on what you want to do.- The aluminum top is pretty neat as you can control the volume, pause, and play any music with just a twist or a press down.-
  • The B&O is the most expensive of the three now that the Denon 7 has dropped in price
  • I personally love the aluminum top as everything on this machine has a purpose, and nothing is on here just for show
  • The Bang & Olufsen M5 can be controlled with touch control of the aluminum top
  • Once you set it up, simply press down on the Beoplay M5's nicely machined aluminum top to control the music's volume or to pause it

Reviews around phone (4.40 of 5)

  • The B&O is the most expensive of the three now that the Denon 7 has dropped in price
  • I've tried installing and reinstalling various permutations of the B&O streaming app on my two-year-old smart phone and my Samsung Galaxy tablet that is several years old
  • From the other direction, I have a few similarly priced Bose products (including the SoundTouch IV), and I'd say that I prefer the B&O to any of the Bose products I have
  • Plus, there's that B&O "cool factor" and obvious build quality that you just don't find in too many other brands
  • I'm fortunate enough to own a number of fine B&O products, and virtually every one has exceeded my expectations

Reviews around m5 (3.56 of 5)

  • Compared the the Beolit 15, the M5 is much clearer in the highs, slightly less punch in the mid bass (not a bad
  • the M5 stumbles ever so slightly
  • Once you set it up, simply press down on the Beoplay M5's nicely machined aluminum top to control the music's volume or to pause it
  • The True360 M5 is pricey, but once you hear it, you'll understand why
  • The M5 is definitely worth an audition if you're looking for a high quality, compact speaker in it's price range.

Reviews around app (3.16 of 5)

  • The app also gives you a way to upload updated firmware into the speaker (happily, this worked flawlessly for me) and to get the version and the serial number of your device
  • The app is consistent and efficient as I have no doubt that over time it’s going to be upgraded to let you do more with this speaker than what it offers on the app now.-
  • It wants you to download an app to set it up and that app only works on an iphone, not the ipad
  • Perhaps in the future Bang & Olufsen will update their app so that it plays well with ALL others, but as of right now, NOTHING that I do to get the app to "see" this M5 works
  • I then tried the Beosetup app from app store and that still wouldn't work
