Braun returns to audio industry after nearly 30-year hiatus

Braun returns to audio industry after nearly 30-year hiatus Despite originally establishing itself as an audio company nearly 100 years ago, Braun found itself in a position where it had to leave the industry in the early 1990s.

As we reported back in July, Braun Audio is bringing back its famous LE speaker range after a 28 year absence. Full details have now been released at IFA in Berlin where the new models are making their world debut this week. There are three models in the range: the £1099/99 LE01

When the news broke in July that Braun Audio's speaker line was making a comeback, pretty much everyone at Engadget was immediately hooked. Thanks to a deal with Proctor & Gamble, Pure Audio now has the rights to the iconic speaker name. While many of us expected a similar aesthetic to the Dieter Rams-designed devices from 1959, Pure is taking a decidedly modern approach with the revival of the LE line. They still have a minimalist look, but have been entirely redesigned both inside and out. This means that all the modern features are along for the ride. And it means the company is taking direct aim at Sonos.

The new speaker that most resembles those classic designs is the LE03. That's pretty much because it's square. It can also be mounted on a stand (either floor or tabletop) in a similar fashion to those previous speakers (in fact, the whole lineup can). And here is where the similarities end, at least design-wise. The larger LE01 and LE02 units are both rectangular, and can be used in either horizontal or vertical orientations. All three have rounded corners where the Rams designs were unabashedly boxy. There is a minimalist look to them, save for the LED indicators in the top right corner of each. The new LE line is also wrapped in an aluminum frame for both the black and white color options. These are meant to be "eye-catching without being intrusive," and for the most part Pure succeeds.

Sonos is working on its first-ever Bluetooth speaker

Sonos is working on its first-ever Bluetooth speaker One of two devices recently filed by Sonos with the FCC is a Bluetooth speaker, The Verge can confirm. In the filing for product model S17, Sonos directly states that it’s “a high-performance wireless speaker and part of the Sonos sound system. The device’s primary function will be for streaming with Wi-Fi, but also features Bluetooth audio streaming and Bluetooth Low Energy, used for simplified setup.” (Emphasis added by The Verge.) No other previous Sonos speaker has supported Bluetooth music playback, though the Sonos One includes BLE for the same reason of easier setup.

Like Sonos gear (well, until this week), the new Braun LE speakers are wireless, but they're not portable. They have to remain plugged in for you to use them. In terms of connectivity, Bluetooth 4.2 with AAC and WiFi are both on board. The latter allows you to use handy features like AirPlay 2, Chromecast built-in and Spotify Connect to beam music, podcasts and more to each of these speakers. WiFi also enables these to be used as a multiroom solution, which you can manage through Braun's software or with the Google Home app.

Voice control is part of the features list as well, as Google Assistant is here to handle your spoken commands and queries. An array of four beam-forming microphones handle both far-field voice recognition and acoustic echo cancellation. All of these wireless connectivity features are available on all three speakers, so you aren't forced to settle for a certain size if you want voice control and other tools.

Modern cave man offers 'Neanderthal' survival courses in Italy

Modern cave man offers 'Neanderthal' survival courses in Italy Guido Camia can show you how to light fires using just a flintstone, survive on a diet of insects and build a forest shelter. "I show them how Neanderthals lived, what they ate, how they lit fires, used a spear. I show them how to use the basic equipment to cook." For customers who opt for the beginners' survival course, "I provide them with enough to get by with." But more advanced customers have to find their own food over a number of days. "That makes people understand that the brain uses the most energy. And even very simple calculations become difficult after three days without food," he smiles.

While there is a Braun app for setup, control and tweaking EQ settings, each of the LE speakers has physical controls as well. There are buttons for actions, play/pause, skipping tracks, volume and Bluetooth pairing. Like many smart speakers these days, there's also a dedicated control for turning off the microphones. When they're disabled, the otherwise white LEDs on the front turn orange, as does the mute button itself. This way you know at a glance if the speaker is listening for your cues. Around back, there's a 3.5mm aux jack if you need to make use of a wired connection.

The main difference between the three units is both size and power. At the top with the pricey LE01, two 5.25-inch aluminum cone woofers, three 2.5-inch radiator drive units, two quadratic 8 x 4.5 inch passive bass radiators and three class-D power amplifiers. With the smallest speaker, the LE03, there's basically one of each of those, and the mid-size LE02 is in between the two. A 32-bit ARM multi-core digital signal processor is on all three models to help with "high accuracy and low noise," and the trio is capable of 96kHz/24-bit audio streaming. If you want to buy two of any of these models, you can use them as a stereo pair with dedicated left and right channels.

The demo room here at IFA was set up in a mostly concrete loft, so it wasn't ideal for making any final judgements on overall sound quality due to the echo. However, based on a few minutes of listening time, I can tell you the audio on the new LE series is very crisp and clear. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by the clarity. Instruments all stand on their own without being condensed down to a single blob of sound. And because of that, there's dimensionality to the audio that a lot of wireless multiroom speakers don't do well. The Braun LE series also has nice bass for standalone speakers -- the radiators for the low-end tone do their job well. Overall, the revival of Braun Audio makes a good first impression, but it's too early to say if they outperform Sonos without further testing. And I'm sure a lot of people won't be happy with the updated design.

The Braun LE series is set to arrive in October in both black and white color options. The largest unit, the LE01 will cost $1,199 (£1099/€1,199) while the mid-size LE02 will be $799 (£749/€799). The smaller, square LE03 is the most affordable of the group at $379 (£349/€379). As a comparison, the Sonos One is $199 and the Play:5, which most closely lines up with the LE02, is $499. In other words, if the audio turns out to be comparable to Sonos with these Braun speakers, you're paying a premium for the brand and its heritage. Again, that's something we'll have to test when we're able to review them.
