Music is an art form, so it's only fitting that your speaker's design is a work of art as well.  Enter the BeoPlay A9 from Bang & Olufsen ($2,699).  It notes a stunning circular design that can be either free-standing or mounted on a wall; it notes superb audio quality and bass delivery; and it comes in either black or white color options.  Best of all, it's fully connected to all modern wireless technologies, so it works with Apple AirPlay, DLNA, and Spotify Connect.

Expanding their BeoPlay H3 headphone lineup, Bang & Olufsen is releasing a special BeoPlay H3 Golden Edition ($249) of the headphones.  Like the current lineup of H3 headphones, the new BeoPlay H3 Golden Edition is crafted from a single block of aluminum that's both lightweight and great looking, with the difference being the stylish golden hue.  Paired with the gold, the rest of the H3 Golden Edition headphones sports a black color scheme, providing a handsome contrast to an already great looking design.  Sound wise, you can expect the same fantastic audio quality Bang & Olufsen is known for, with the H3 headphones noting a custom-designed 10.8 mm driver that delivers dynamic sound with deep bass and superb mid-tones.  If you want a pair, the Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H3 Golden Edition Headphones will be available starting in February.
