14 Feb Wanted Wednesday: Bang and Olufsen BeoLab 50
Bang and Olufsen are known for their beautifully stylish audiovisual products that combine cutting edge design with innovative technologies and their latest speakers don’t disappoint.
The BeoLab 50 speakers are floor standing and have been created to be a consumer-friendly version of company’s flagship BeoLab 90. Although with a price tag of over £22k, that puts them on the dream wishlist for most!
The speaker has a large curved base designed to create the impression that it is floating on the floor. Also featured is plenty of aluminium and oakwood lamellas giving the speakers that distinctive Bang & Olufsen high-end look.
As mentioned, the BeoLab 50 are based on the BeoLab 90 and so most of the technology that features in these speakers, also feature in the flagship product and has been developed to give the best possible performance whilst keeping costs down.
One of the BeoLab 50 technologies is Active Room Compensation. External microphones analyse the room their placed in and measure acoustic properties. The speaker then adjusts audio settings to deliver the best possible sound. Also featured is B&O’s Acoustic Lens technology. The lens rises out of the top when switched on – set to narrow or wide to disperse sound around the room to suit the setting.
BeoLab 50 come as a pair. One speaker is the master and the other is the slave – the master speaker has digital optical, USB, RCA and S/P-DIF connections. You can also connect wirelessly using the WiSA platform.
