Form and function blend almost seamlessly together to produce an exquisite expression of refined, powerful sound.
An absolutely flexible wireless speaker with smooth high frequencies and an ultra high-intensity bass that can be placed anywhere in the room without impairing the look or the sound in any way.
TWEETER ON A PODIUM
The crowning glory of BeoLab 20 is the Acoustic Lens. Its 180-degree horizontal dispersion conveys smooth high-frequency sound evenly throughout the room.The Acoustic Lens maximizes the area of optimum sound in front of the speaker, enabling the listener to move around more freely while still experiencing perfect sound. The technology also minimizes the effect of floor and ceiling reflections, reducing unwanted distortion, thereby improving the overall sound experience.
PERFECT BASS PLAYBACK
In order to deliver ultra-high-intensity bass without risking woofer damage when playing at full volume, Bang & Olufsen’s patented Adaptive Bass Linearisation technology constantly monitors and adapts the lows. For maximum placement flexibility, the speaker can be optimised to suit its immediate surroundings via a manual position switch, activating Bang & Olufsen’s innovative room adaptation technology

"RATHER THAN PRODUCING A TUNING BASED ON A PREDICTION, WE BASE IT ON EXPERIENCE INSTEAD – BY PLAYING THE LOUDSPEAKER IN DIFFERENT ROOMS AND DIFFERENT POSITIONS AND CREATING THE SAME SORT OF BEHAVIOUR AS WE'D FIND IN THE REAL WORLD"
METICULOUSLY MATCHED POWER, ELEGANT DESIGN
From the legendary Acoustic Lens down to the base of the conically shaped cabinet, BeoLab 20 seamlessly merges form and function. Everything underlines its own particular purpose. The soft-touch lacquer on the cooling grill hints at the role it plays. The pearl-blasted base of the Acoustic Lens creates a gentle contrast with the high-gloss aluminium of the lens itself – highlighting the unit’s importance in spreading sound evenly throughout the room. And the cleverly designed base of the cabinet makes it seem as if the speaker is floating.
