B&O Creates a $30,000 Speaker with Outstanding Musical and Cinematic Experiences


Bang&Olufsen (B&O)never disappoints the audiophiles and design enthusiasts with its range of opulent and innovative loudspeakers. This time around the company wants you to experience music like never before  with the launch of a high-end active speaker called ” BeoLab 50″.

With  a modest footprint that feels at home in any interior, the new BeoLab 50 at $30,000 (N11m) delivers beyond doubt an  exceptional performance with innovative sound controls and a uniquely unfolding design.

Designed with a  slender, tall silhouette and rounded base, BeoLab 50 stands out without being obtrusive. It  is a floor standing loudspeaker that fits in anywhere. It sports a light expression with a modest height of 103.6 cm and measuring just 45.5 cm at its widest.

According to Bang&Olufsen , “BeoLab 50 shares several technology patents and features from the radical BeoLab 90. Once again our audio engineers have created a speaker that performs beyond reference in every listening scenario.”

With the adjustable acoustic lens, BeoLab 50 can alter its sound delivery tailored to the position of the audience. For classic sweet spot listening, the moving cheeks of the acoustic lens will contract and send a direct and narrow sound beam towards your preferred listening spot. With a house full of party guests or a crowd gathered in front of the TV, the chins slide open for a room-filling sound performance.

Using an external microphone, connected to the loudspeaker, Active Room Compensation technology measures the acoustical behaviour of your room and creates a set of custom filters that compensate for reflections from walls and furniture in different listening areas.

BeoLab 50 also  offers seamless control options tailored to the ways you interact with technology in your home. It integrates completely with your BeoVision TV using the BeoRemote One. You can also use the Bang & Olufsen app on your phone or tablet to quickly set up and access saved presets, adjust settings and create new favourites.

With the 7 dedicated built-in amplifiers, there is no need for a separate amplifier or the clutter of audio cables. Just plug it into a power socket and BeoLab 50 is ready to perform.
