B&O mobile headset with Bluetooth and DSP

May 4, 2007 Bang & Olufsen’s A8 earphones are now five years old but remain one of the most functional and aesthetic earphones on the market, having subsequently spawned the Earset 1 for mobile phones. Now the Danish tastemeister has evolved the distinctive, comfortable and stylish design to incorporate Bluetooth and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) noise cancellation technology. The US$420 Earset 2 offers four hours of talk time, weighs just 22g and will perform most admirably in any environment where background noise can take over. Exceptional transmission quality is achieved by two omni-directional microphones which filter and suppress background noise, giving the best voice transmission possible. The loudspeaker in Earset 2 is a fully-fledged closed cabinet loudspeaker unit in miniature. Supported by air vents and a bass port together with an ergonomic design, the loudspeaker has a frequency response that gives an exceptionally high degree of tonal precision.  Read More

BeoLab 9 loudspeaker combines superior sound with freedom of placement

April 2, 2007 A strong manifestation of Bang & Olufsen’s sound competences, the BeoLab 9 is the fourth loudspeaker from B&O that applies Acoustic Lens Technology licensed from Sausalito Audio Works in the treble area. Partly integrated into the conically-shaped cabinet that holds the mid-range and bass units, the lens sits atop the speaker - almost like a lighthouse – dispersing the treble in an arc of 180 degrees. Normally, a loudspeaker’s performance is strongly influenced by its physical position in the room. Yet, Beolab 9 adapts to its placement through a manual position switch that makes it possible to place the speaker in a corner or close to the wall without compromising the sound.  Read More

Invisible sound from Bang & Olufsen

February 26, 2007 Adding further validity to the “sound systems should be heard and not seen” school of thought is the news that long-term discerner of public taste Bang & Olufsen is to release a passive loudspeaker that can be placed in places where active loudspeakers fall short. Bang & Olufsen has played a leading role in the evolution of entertainment systems and its BeoVox 1 points to the future of home entertainment. Being a built-in loudspeaker, BeoVox 1 fits nicely and discreetly in hallways or rooms where you do not have much space. It can be completely concealed in the walls or in the ceiling. It's extremely well suited for places where the primary activity is not listening to music, but where you'd still like to have music either as secondary entertainment or background sound. Another product from the imagination of designer David Lewis, the two-way passive system includes 1” treble unit and a 6” mid-range/bass unit, delivering a frequency range of 50-20,000 Hz.  Read More

March 1, 2005 danish design icon Bang & Olufsen has released its BeoVision 7 television, a 32” LCD widescreen TV with integrated DVD player, digital surround sound module and a three-way stereo loudspeaker system. The BeoVision 7 system also incorporates Bang & Olufsen’s VisionClear, a package of picture technologies designed to deliver the best possible picture in all situations. For example, if the curtains are opened, the BeoVision 7 automatically adjusts its picture to match the light conditions of the room. A special anti-reflection coating reduces the effect of incoming light, allowing the TV to be viewed even in broad daylight.  Read More
