Bang & Olufsen’s Ultra High-end Beolab 8 is a Finely Crafted Compact Speaker
 

Bang & Olufsen is a much-loved brand in the audio space, with speakers that take both stylish good looks and performance to the next level. Now, they’re back with the Beolab 8, a truly high-end speaker in every sense of the word.

It’s a gorgeous and unique speaker: a one-piece aluminum body with a spherical and cylindrical shape, featuring either a fabric grille or wooden lamellas, and glass-top interface. But all of these features aren’t just for show—they’re also critical to the creation of crystal-clear, well-balanced acoustics.

 

 

The speaker delivers impressive sound on its own, but it can be paired with other B&O speakers (both latest models and any of their “heritage” speakers built after 1984) for a larger sound stage or surround sound.

Despite its compact size, it maxes out the bass to give you a truly epic listening experience whether you’re playing dubstep or an action movie. Thanks to its 5.25-inch woofer, 3-inch midrange driver, and 16mm tweeter, you get industry-leading performance every time you use it.

 

 

It’s also got one very cool feature: it lets you adjust the listening modes between “narrow” (focused only on the listener, producing a “sweet spot” for top-quality sound) and “wide” (filling a space or room with diffuse sound).

Form truly meets function in this high-end, next-level speaker.
