Combining advanced technological function with exquisite form is this new MP3 system from Bang & Olufsen - the BeoSound 2. Not much larger than a piece of jewellery and equally as beautiful, the Beosound2's tiny screenless stainless steel case fits in the palm of a hand, and the functions behind the control buttons were immediately evident. Apart from an exquisite tactile quality, it has the best set of three-way adjustable earpod headphones we've ever seen.

The PC-based software which drives it is equally elegant and user-friendly, enabling the playing music on your PC or any set of speakers in the home. Finally, to charge the unit, or download music from the computer, just rest the BeoSound 2 on the tiny nub. Pricing is $195 for the earphones and $1295 for the BeoSound 2, though an introductory offer enables both to be purchased for $1400.
