Analysing sound

Digital music in the amazing B&O sound quality

Even if your music is on the mobile phone, play it directly via BeoSound 5 on great Bang & Olufsen loudspeakers. This may lead you to hear things in your digital music you have never heard before.

Intelligent playlist

BeoSound 5 respects your taste in music. If you like, the intelligent MOTS feature actually ‘listens’ to the song you are playing – analyses the sound, dynamics, and rhythmic aspects. It then finds similar music and automatically offers a playlist that can take you to places in your music collection you may have forgotten you had.

Technology made easy

Instant access to a world of music

With a storage capacity of 1 TB and built with some of the best signal processing, BeoSound 5 supports playback of WMA and FLAC lossless files in addition to the compressed file formats. These lossless file formats contain the bits that go missing from compressed mp3 music.

More than 13,000 radio stations

Rip your latest CD instantly, flip through inspiring album covers with friends, listen to more than 13,000 internet radio stations from all over the world and let the intelligent system find music you forgot you had.
