Bang & Olufsen unveiled their inaugural loudspeaker BeoLab 50, that was created on the basis of the uncompromising acoustic research and technological development of BeoLab 90 and, thus, shares several features with this iconic landmark loudspeaker. The new BeoLab 50 delivers a truly exceptional performance through its innovative sound control technologies and unique design.
The distinct appearance of BeoLab 50, with Bang & Olufsen’s signature silver-polished aluminium surfaces and warm oak wood lamellas, allows it to fit elegantly into any interior decor. The silhouette of the new loudspeaker is slender, tall, and rounded by floating lines and visible edges. The bottom part of the speaker is designed to visually lift the speaker from the floor, keeping a light expression of clear posture in the center.
BeoLab 50 is fitted with an advanced Active Room Compensation technology. Using an external microphone, the speaker measures its physical acoustic surroundings and applies the ideal compensation filters to produce optimum sound at your listening positions or throughout the entire room. The unique Acoustic Lens Technology is applied on top of the speaker to handle the sound dispersion of the upper frequencies. The lens disperses the sound via Beam Width Control into either a 180-degree sound mode for social enjoyment. When BeoLab 50 is switched on, the lens appears in an elegant and controlled upwards movement, revealing a softly-lit cave to ensure that the lens is discretely visible both day and night.
The BeoLab 50s are interconnected via Digital Power Link in a master-slave configuration with sound sources being fed into the system via the master speaker’s comprehensive connection panel. The high-end active loudspeaker with 2100 watts of precision power also incorporates wireless technology using multichannel digital audio streaming with a very robust performance.
BeoLab 50 is available in selected Bang & Olufsen stores worldwide starting this month for $19,585 per unit or $39,710 a pair.
