BeoLab 5 - HIGH QUALITY LOUDSPEAKERS 

Get an out-of living-room experience. You will completely forget all the advanced technology that enables your BeoLab 5 speakers to erase themselves from the picture.

Get an out-of living-room experience

We want you to believe that you are somewhere else. Right on the stage with Brünnhilde and Siegfried; in the recording studio during the Birth of the Cool; tumbling around the U-96 as the depth charges detonate. You are no longer in your living room.

Follow your ears

It listens and learns

The acoustic properties of your listening room play a very important role in the quality of the sound from high-end speakers – as do their placement relative to walls and furniture. Luckily, digital technology from Bang & Olufsen known as Adaptive Bass Control will listen and analyse "the sound of the room" and tailor the speakers' performance accordingly.  

Always in the right position

You can move around a grand piano as much as you like, and the music will still move you. In contrast, a traditional stereo speaker set-up locks the listener in a 'sweet spot' position of limited physical dimensions. If you move around, you lose out on the subtleties in the music because of the directionality of the speakers.

It is about the experience

Absolute power without corruption

How do you fit a full symphony orchestra between the sofa and the easy chair? The BeoLab 5 may not appear small compared with other Bang & Olufsen loudspeakers, but its physical size is in fact negligible when compared to the sound it delivers. This is where the 2500 watts of digital amplification comes in. With these power reserves, we can coax a bigger, clearer, more realistic and potentially much louder sound out of something relatively small.  

Freedom to listen – freedom to move

Enter Acoustic Lens Technology exclusively from Bang & Olufsen, and feel free to sit anywhere you like. You will always be in the right place. Problem solved.
