Beolab 50

BeoLab 50 is the first loudspeaker from Bang & Olufsen, emerging directly from the prestigious and innovative BeoLab 90 that set an entirely new standard for state-of-the-art loudspeakers. Perfect for both cinematic and musical experiences, the extraordinary performance of BeoLab 50 has gained from the uncompromising acoustic research and technological development of BeoLab 90 and shares several features with this iconic landmark loudspeaker. The loudspeaker’s distinct appearance reflects the technologies applied while still fitting elegantly into any interior decor.

HIGH PERFORMER WITH A LIGHT FOOTPRINT

The silhouette of BeoLab 50 is slender, tall, and rounded by floating lines and visible edges. The silver-polished aluminium surfaces and warm oak wood lamellas are recognizable trademarks of Bang & Olufsen products. The bottom part of the speaker is designed to visually lift the speaker from the floor, keeping a light expression of clear posture.

ADVANCED SOUND CUSTOMISATION

BeoLab 50 also benefits from the pioneering Active Room Compensation technology. Using an external microphone, BeoLab 50 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 side ‘cheeks’ adjusts to wide or narrow, which decides whether you are having a sweet spot listening experience or are going for a wider sound dispersion.

WIRELESS EXCELLENCE

The Bang & Olufsen App enables you to operate BeoLab 50, and will assist you in creating and selecting different listening presets in relation to your listening position and preferences. This is bespoke listening at its best.
