We are very excited about the upcoming Today’s Special Value offer from B&O PLAY by Bang and Olufsen – it’s a stunning speaker that you just won’t want to miss! We caught up with guest Ben Staniforth to find out a little more about him and the A2 speaker offer, over to you Ben…
I’m Ben, and for the past 10 years I have devoted my career to Bang & Olufsen, where I have managed over six different showrooms, and am now one of the Regional UK managers. I absolutely love the brand, it’s a bit like me, it goes to the beat of its own drum, it doesn’t follow the crowd, and certainly doesn’t always follow the rules. In a world where manufacturers seem to follow each other to all go bigger or smaller, wider or slimmer, B&O keeps to the core of what it believes in – beautiful design and genuine honest materials, created to enhance your lifestyle in an enduring magical way.
I was very musical before joining Bang & Olufsen, and qualified as a sound engineer and was a professional dancer! I was in some terrible bands and enjoyed writing some terrible songs. It was my passion for music that attracted me to Bang & Olufsen in the first place, and although their sound is second to none, it’s the design, craftsmanship, and pure magic that I really love.
My favourite B&O Play product that I own is the BeoPlay A2. It represents everything I love about the brand. It’s a truly portable Bluetooth speaker, and people are always shocked by how amazing the sound is. It features patented True360 Omni-Directional Sound so that wherever you are in the room, you can enjoy its great audio, plus it has a clever and intuitive design, beautiful materials, and unique, meaningful technologies, such as 24 hour battery life for life on the go.
I always take it on holiday with me; it follows me in to the garden, kitchen, and sometimes even the bathroom! I always bring it out when we have guests, as everyone is fascinated by it and it’s always a real talking point. It looks so cool, has such an impressive sound for its size, and is so versatile, I always feel proud talking about it and showing it off, and of course when the party really gets started – turning it up!
A little about me… as I mentioned, I’ve always loved music, but I’m also a keen martial artist, although I struggle to find the time as I’m now a family man with an 18 month old baby boy called Jude. He’s wonderful but not a great sleeper, which means I always have tired eyes. I live in Essex with my wife, I work in London, and my family is from Leicester, although I’ve moved around a lot including living abroad in Hungary and Spain, so sometimes you can pick out a weird tint to my accent!
I hope you’ll join me on Saturday 30th April to find out more about the A2 speaker, plus lots more coming up, including the H6 headphones I’m wearing in the picture above. See you then!
