Bang & Olufsen introduces a major breakthrough in wireless sound with the launch of a new range of high-end wireless speakers in three unique designs.
With the launch of three new wireless speakers, Bang & Olufsen once again confirms the brand’s dedication to excellent acoustics, uncompromising design and craftsmanship, and technological innovation that makes life simpler for discerning users.
The all-digital active speakers leverage the new WiSA standard for multi-channel wireless sound to provide outstanding acoustic performance. The wireless flexibility allows stunning sound to be added to any room easily.
The new wireless line-up includes BeoLab 17, a place-anywhere compact speaker with outsize sound; BeoLab 18, the latest incarnation of Bang & Olufsen’s sculpturally iconic audio columns for walls or floor; and BeoLab 19, a radically redesigned subwoofer that pumps refined bass with a visceral punch.
Lars Fredsgaard, Speaker Category Director at Bang & Olufsen describes the new speakers as being at the vanguard of a new era of high-end sound. Pointing out how until now, speakers with this level of performance had to be wired, he said that their latest launch uses a robust wireless standard with enough bandwidth and channels to deliver a listening experience as intended by the artist. One can now upgrade to premium sound in three different ways without downgrading the décor.
While the WiSA standard has been integrated into the new speakers, Bang & Olufsen has also rethought practically everything about exterior design, custom-made components and dedicated digital sound engines.
With an acoustic lens tweeter and 21-lamella front, available in solid oak as well as black or white, BeoLab 18 marks a quantum leap in the evolution of Bang & Olufsen’s signature column speakers.
BeoLab 17’s wedge-like form makes it easy to place anywhere from bookshelves to walls.
BeoLab 19, the subwoofer draws on the extraordinary rigidity of a 12-faced dodecahedron and two drivers operating in-phase to eliminate unwanted vibrations.
All three speakers come equipped with new sound engines that include thermal protection, Adaptive Bass Linearization and a room position switch, so they deliver crystal-clear definition whatever is played on them and wherever they are placed.
Bang & Olufsen is launching the three new speakers under its Immaculate Wireless Sound concept.
Sound that is reproduced as the artist intended it to be has long been a Bang & Olufsen hallmark. With Immaculate Wireless Sound, Bang & Olufsen brings this tradition of acoustic authenticity into the wireless age for the first time ever.
Since they run on the new WiSA standard, all that needs to be done is plug the active speakers into the mains in a room with any WiSA-compliant transmitter in order to link wirelessly to the TV, Blu-ray player or set-top box.
For example, all Bang & Olufsen Immaculate Wireless Sound speakers work seamlessly, simply and spectacularly with the WiSA-updated BeoVision 11 television. With WiSA-compliant transmitters and receivers integrated into the physical and digital design, Bang & Olufsen now delivers unparalleled acoustic performance in a wireless surround setup.
BeoLab 17 is available in stores now while BeoLab 18 and 19 wireless speakers will be available in December at Bang & Olufsen stores worldwide.
