Braun speakers make a return with Airplay 2 and Google Assistant
Legendary design brand Braun is back in the speaker business with its first new products since the original Dieter Rams-designed LE line 28 years ago, launching a trio of modern takes on the classic speakers at IFA 2019: the LE01, LE02, and LE03, via 9to5Mac.
Or, sort of: the speakers aren’t technically being produced by Braun itself, but rather by Pure Audio, which licensed the Braun Audio branding from Procter & Gamble earlier this year. That said, the three new speakers are clearly inspired by Rams’ original design, albeit with some modern innovations added in, like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. That also means the new speakers support things like AirPlay 2, Chromecast, and Google Assistant, thanks to built-in microphones.
