Refined, forceful sound

Flexible wireless speaker combining delicate highs and forceful lows for full acoustic impact.

Meaningful innovations

Our technological breakthroughs never seek technology as an end. Acoustic lenses spread the high frequencies horizontally around the room so that they cover more of the listening area while reducing reflections from the floor or ceiling. Walk around a room and the Bang & Olufsen sound performance remains unchanged.

Adaptive Bass Linearisation delivers great bass from small speakers by harnessing surplus capacity in the amplifier and driver unit. We extend a speaker’s bass output far beyond what it would normally produce and automatically adjust it for excessive peaks.

ACOUSTIC LENS

Putting the highs on a pedestal

The crowning glory of Beolab 20 is the Acoustic Lens that delivers smooth high-frequency sound in full 180 degrees. The results are uncompromising listening experiences across your room and much greater freedom in terms of where you place your speaker for optimal sound.

SOUND

Hear it and believe it.

Very few speakers can rival the formidable combination of power and poise of the Beolab 20. At the heart of its refined acoustic performance is a custom-built digital sound engine, that’s refined to optimise every single component inside this wireless speaker.

DESIGN

Sophisticated from the inside out

Beolab 20 is a truly powerful speaker, designed with an elegant and surprisingly compact appearance. With the body almost entirely draped in your choice of high-quality fabric, this stylish speaker easily adapts to its surroundings.

ADAPTIVE BASS

Creating the perfect lows

To deliver precise and intensive bass without the risk of damaging your speaker at high volumes, our Adaptive Bass Linearisation technology constantly monitors and adapts the speaker’s bass performance.

ROOM ADAPTATION

Superior sound from any position

Every speaker will sound different depending on its position in a room. Beolab 20 features our innovative room adaptation technology that optimises the audio performance based on your speaker’s actual placement in a corner, against a wall or free-standing.

  • Each speaker’s integrated subwoofer, with two 160-watt class-D amplifiers and a 10-inch driver, is sealed away within an independent 18-liter enclosure. B&O’s Adaptive Bass Linearisation constantly monitors and adapts low frequencies, helping to deliver extreme bass without risking subwoofer damage when playing at full volume. And finally, there are two more 160-watt class-D amplifiers dedicated to a 5-inch driver for midrange frequencies and 3/4-inch tweeter.
