Competition: win a Braun LE03 speaker and a BN0265 Chronograph watch

As part of today's VDF x Braun collaboration, we have teamed up with the German design brand to give readers the chance of winning a Braun LE03 speaker and a BN0265 Chronograph watch.

This competition has now closed. 

Since 1921, German brand Braun has designed products with a "less is more" design approach. This includes the LE03 speaker, which features an updated design by legendary designer Dieter Rams.

Crafted from aluminium and finished in either black or white, the LE03 is a compact speaker teamed with a subtle stand that also "elegantly resolves cable management".

Despite its size, the speaker is designed to produce solid, immersive sound at all volumes,  which can be controlled using your voice thanks to built-in Google Assistant.

All LE speakers are engineered with profile Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) drive units, which provide a near 18-degree soundstage, "meaning that the units are always easy to position without the worry of a specific sweet spot of traditional speakers," according to Braun.

Users benefit from regular software updates and can choose from over 300 music streaming services, all available with wi-fi streaming. Each speaker also has a dedicated privacy button to physically disconnect microphones should you wish.

"The perfect combination of form and function, the LE range is eye-catching without being intrusive, offering the perfect balance of unparalleled performance in a minimalist form," said Braun.

Also up for grabs in the competition is a BN0265 Classic Chronograph watch for men – winner of a Red Dot Design Award for 2020, an international design competition for product design, communication design and design concepts.

Described by Braun as a "modern interpretation of the brand's design philosophy 'less is best'", the BN0265 Classic Chronograph watch boasts a sleek, consistent connection between its black leather strap and matt stainless-steel case.
