What do the light indicator colours on my Beosound 1 mean?


Beosound 1 has two light indicators which are used for multiple functions.

The Status indicator is positioned on top of the Beosound 1 in the middle of the touch plate: 


White (shortly)

Switched on

White flashing slowly

Charging battery

Red solid

Battery capacity between 0 – 10 %

Red flashing fast

Battery capacity below 2%

Hardware error

Note that when battery capacity drops below 10%, the volume is lowered. When below 2%, Beosound 1 switches off.

You can see the battery capacity and the state of the battery in the Bang & Olufsen app. Select the Beosound 1, go to "Product settings", "Configure", "About" and then "Status".

The Lens indicator is positioned in the middle of Beosound 1 directly under the touch plate.
