BeoLab 50 was the first speaker to offer some of the functions of one of the company's most expensive loudspeakers, BeoLab 90. Traditionally for Bang & Olufsen, the BeoLab 90 cabinet is made of oak and aluminum and tapers somewhat towards the end, which visually "lifts" the entire structure off the floor.
So that the sound quality of the speaker does not change depending on where it is located, the company's engineers have developed the Active Room Compensation system. With an external microphone, BeoLab 50 “scans” the environment and applies special compensation filters to adjust the sound in one way or another.
A proprietary acoustic lens that operates in two modes is responsible for high frequencies. In the first, "wide", the sound is scattered 180 degrees - it is suitable for watching movies or listening to music in a company. The second, "narrow" one is designed for one person sitting in a certain place. When the speaker is switched on, the lens gently slides upward to reveal a softly lit niche - one of the most interesting designs in BeoLab 50.
You can control the speaker functions and calibrate its sound using the smartphone app. A pair of two devices can be connected with or without wires, via WiSA technology.
BeoLab 50 will go on sale in August. Cost - € 14 625.>
