Although it is small and compact, it delivers a sound that will astonish you with its power, precision and depth.

Impressive little numbers

Looks can be deceiving. Especially when you see BeoLab 3 for the first time. Although it is a small and compact loudspeaker, it delivers a sound that will astonish you with its power, precision and depth.

Adapting to the room

The shape of BeoLab 3 is distinctive, without any sharp edges. The acoustic lens, designed in
accordance with the properties of the ellipse, contributes further to its highly differentiated look. The visual expression of BeoLab 3 changes with the many placement options, ensuring that
it always fits in with your living environment, challenging preconceptions or disappearing visually

Pure sound

Great things come in small packages

For B&O, the philosophy has always been to reproduce sound as authentically as possible. To produce pure sound that is true to the original, we have to master the knowledge of sound processing from the source to the ear.


For this purpose, we have developed a two-pronged strategy deploying not only physical but also perceptual testing. The trick is to make those two things map onto one another and make perfect sense - then we've got the perfect speaker.

“As far as sound goes, we have no religion and no preconceptions, only an open mind – and ear”
Gert Kudahl Munch
Bang & Olufsen Acoustics

A contradiction in size versus sound


The two ICEpower amplifiers in each BeoLab 3 produce very little excess heat, so there is no need for the cooling space often necessary with traditional active loudspeaker construction.

A conventional speaker would have to be about ten times the size of BeoLab 3 to deliver a comparable sound. The speakers have three pre-set bass settings for placement in corners, against walls, or freestanding in a room. This is made possible through Adaptive Bass Control Technology.

The sweet sound of 180°

The acoustic lens delivers the sound horizontally 180 degrees in front of the lens, resolving the limitations of the ‘sweet spot’ of traditional stereophonic sound.

The cymbals placed above and below the lens reduce the sound reflections from ceiling and floor, further improving the perceived sound quality. This means the listening experience is not so dependent on where the listener is seated in relation to the loudspeaker.
