Overview of our technologies

Bluetooth aptX
plug & play

Whether you’re looking for a little sonic motivation at work or in the kitchen or a bit of relaxing sound in the bedroom, the Motiv B is the answer thanks to a compact size, sophisticated audio technology and great feature set.

The ultimate Bluetooth speakers
The sophisticated aptX Codec for Bluetooth is perfect for the wireless transmission of music in transparent sound quality. Enjoy your digital music collection with precise, clear and distortion-free sound.

After an ititial pairing procedure, your source device will henceforth connect to the Motiv B automatically thanks to a

Bluetooth auto-pairing feature.
The Motiv B can save up to six Bluetooth-enabled devices with this feature, giving you a wide range of music players that can almost instantly connect to your speakers. Forward compatibility means that the Motiv B will be able to play even newer Bluetooth standards for years to come.

We understand many will want a wired connection to their playback deivces. That’s why we’ve included an AUX input on the back for use with a standard stereo cable.

The Teufel advantage: Always the best sound

  • 48 watt class D amplifier for high, distortion-free levels, low noise and extreme efficiency
  • Bi-amping technology: Tweeter and midbass driver are each driven by a DSP-guided amplifer. This reduces non-linear distortion and increases the precsion of the acoustic image
  • 2-way system allows the tweeter and midbass driver to work in their optimal ranges resulting in voices and instruments that are reproduced with clarity and precision. Digitally guided group delay improves the stereo image which allow instruments and voices to be precisely positioned
  • A progressive bass reflex system with a broad bass reflex vent enables a low end of 65 Hz (-3dB) for deep and powerful bass from such small enclosures
  • High excursion midbass drivers enable the greatest possible membrane movement for distortion-free bass even at high volumes
  • Pads for positioning the speakers are included with delivery. This allows the speakers to be optimally angeled towards the listener and uncouples the low bass vibrations from the table or desk top

Automatic standby
The Motiv B switches off automatically when not in use. This saves electricity which is a big win for the environment and your wallet. An LED light on the front panel indicates when the system is on.

Motiv B review of Area DVD
Motiv B review of Area DVD
"Teufel's Motiv B Bluetooth loudspeaker pair thrilled us with a sleek look and high-end workmanship, and especially with their incredibly natural, lively and thoroughly powerful sound."
Area DVD 14.08.2014
Sound

"Teufels Motiv B certainly does not produce an in-your-face confrontational sound, but rather a sound that is mature in a way that one hadn’t anticipated.”

"[W]e [were impressed] by the Motiv B’s impulse fidelity, liveliness and dynamic. [...] The upper range is not muffled or overshadowed but rather incredibly free and flawlessly transparent. Even the bass could be appreciated. For such compact enclosures, the punch and depth is excellent.”

"It’s good that Teufel’s sound engineers took their job of carefully and precisely tuning a Bluetooth loudspeaker so seriously. This is often not the case, even with expensive competitors [...]. With the Motiv B, it’s a different story: The bass range is really good, the mid and upper ranges balanced and clear. Masters were at work here who took their time and didn't want to throw a “me too” product on the market, but rather a truly good and substantial-sounding BT loudspeaker.”

"Small dynamic differences are wonderfully expressed, much better than is the case with many expensive competitors. [...] The Motiv B proves [...] that it is able to be play back all styles of music in excellent sound quality – another indication of precise tuning.”

Conclusion

"Teufel's Motiv B Bluetooth loudspeaker pair thrilled us with a sleek look and high-end workmanship, and especially with their incredibly natural, lively and thoroughly powerful sound. The level stability is extremely high, the fine dynamics are excellent for this price class.”

Motiv B review of SFT
Motiv B review of SFT
"Practical: The Motiv B turns itself on automatically as soon as it receives an audio signal"
SFT 08/2014
"With the Motiv B, Teufel presents a compact loudspeaker set that plays music from cell phones, tablets or computers thanks to an AUX input, 3.5 mm stereo connection and Bluetooth.“

"The flexible sound duo present themselves in classic white. An integrated amplifier ensures a rich sound.”

"Practical: The Motiv B turns itself on automatically as soon as it receives an audio signal and changes over to an energy-saving standby mode once 20 seconds go by without data transmission.“

Motiv B review of GAME ZOOM
Motiv B review of GAME ZOOM
"Even very discriminating listeners will really enjoy the Teufel set.”
GAME ZOOM 08/2014
Workmanship
"There’s nothing to complain about when it comes to the design: The matte white loudspeakers cut a very fine figure on the desk.“

Technology
"We really liked our test system‘s high degree of level stability: Even at 90 percent maximum volume, we were unable to detect any distortion.“

Sound
"The Motive B really shows its strength in very bass-heavy situations; but the 2.0 set masters even treble and mid ranges [...] In other words: Even very discriminating listeners will really enjoy the Teufel set.”

Conclusion
"The 2.0 set scored points with high-end workmanship, faultless technology, clear highs and a powerful bass. The ease of use and high degree of level stability were also positive surprises. The timeless black and white design and the practical standby mode perfectly round out the whole.”

Motiv B review of c't
Motiv B review of c't
"The sound image was […] neutral and three dimensional."
c't 07/2014
"The speakers receive audio signals either per analogue via stereo cable or digitally via Bluetooth. For the latter, the Motiv B supports the codec aptX.”

"The sound image was […] neutral and three dimensional. It brought across the bass […] powerfully yet discreetly.“

"For their size, these compact speakers sound truly good.“
Motiv B review of allroundPC
Motiv B review of allroundPC
"The loudspeakers produced a rich bass with clear and balanced highs."
allroundPC 07/2014
Design & workmanship
Chich, chic! This was our first impression as we unpacked the Motiv B. The matte white loudspeakers looked very good on the desk [...]. The workmanship on our test model was without fault and left nothing to be desired.

Sound quality
Considering the Motiv B’s compact dimensions, we did not expect this sort of full sound […]. The loudspeakers produced a rich bass with clear and balanced highs. […] The maximum volume is very loud with a laptop and a smartphone […]. All the while, the Motiv B maintains stable levels […]. The signal is wirelessly transmitted via Bluetooth 3.0 with an aptX codec that is supposed to guarantee CD quality sound. All-in-all, the sound image of the speakers was pleasant and persuasive .

Conclusion
For 249.99 Euro, one gets classically mature speakers that enhance a desk both visually and sonically. The Bluetooth function on Teufel’s Motiv B with which friends can quickly and easily connect their smartphones to the system is especially useful.

Help regarding this product
My Bluetooth speaker produces a lesser quality sound with my Windows PC or laptop.
It could be that the speaker is connected as a device with speakerphone function. Please go to: settings menu > devices and printer > BOOMSTER (or other Bluetooth device). Right click on the device and remove the check mark next to the “speakerphone” option.
Can I order the Teufel speakers in different colours than those offered?
To realise the very reasonable sales prices usual for Teufel, it is not possible to offer the speakers in a multitude of housing designs.

This circumstance would drive up the production and storage costs, which would result in a significantly more expensive sales price.

A paint shop in your vicinity will surely be able to repaint the speaker housing to your preferred colour without loss of warranty - after expiry of the eight-week right of return.
