Frown not for the $299/£279 Beoplay M3 is here. For half the price of the Beoplay M5, which will make it a lot easier to get a handful of these and place them around your home.

Aluminum, wool and polymer; hand crafted materials have been used for M3 to maximize the quality of its sound and design. Blended lamb’s wool or pearl blasted, anodized aluminum have been used in the manufacture of its front covers. A soft polymer base adds stability to the speaker and improves bass performance.
The $300 price point is reasonable, but the M3 has a lot of competition in the wireless audio space. Market leader Sonos has a voice-activated speaker starting at $200 now, and it works directly with far more streaming services.
Meanwhile, Apple is getting ready to launch the $350 HomePod and Google has the $400 Home Max coming soon as well, both of those speakers may cost a little more, but they’re larger and have more drivers across the board. Still, if you’ve wanted to try B&O without totally breaking the bank the M3 should be a decent entry point into their wireless ecosystem.
The B&O Play Beoplay 3 is available now for £279, an extra fabric front cover cost £54 while an aluminum grille costs £64.
