Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 17, 18 and 19 Wireless Speakers

Bang & Olufsen Beolab 17, 18 and 19 Wireless Speakers

Bang & Olufsen is launching the three new speakers under its Immaculate Wireless Sound concept. The all-digital active speakers are the world’s first WiSA (Wireless Speaker and Sound Association) certified for multi-channel wireless sound, which claim to provide acoustic performance beyond anything you have heard without cables. The untethered flexibility means that adding stunning sound to any room has never been easier.

The new wireless line-up includes:

  • BeoLab 17, an extremely flexible, compact speaker with very large sound reproduction;
  • BeoLab 18, tall floor standing speakers, which can also be wall mounted; and
  • BeoLab 19, a radically redesigned subwoofer that pumps refined bass with a visceral punch.

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. Additionally, 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 you play on them and wherever you place them.

Since all three speakers run on the new WiSA standard, all you need to do is plug the active speakers into the mains in a room with any WiSA-compliant transmitter in order to link wirelessly to your 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. Of course, you can also connect the new speakers with wires, just as you can add wireless speakers to an existing wired setup if so desired.

The Wireless Speaker and Sound Association (WiSA) platform utilizes the relatively uncontested 5.2-5.8 GHz range to avoid interference from other signals, and to provide enough bandwidth to stream 24-bit, uncompressed music at native sampling rates. WiSA is the first wireless system in the U-NII band that provides multi-channel performance – up to a full 7.1 surround configuration.

“These new speakers are at the vanguard of a new era of high-end sound,” says Lars Fredsgaard, Speaker Category Director at Bang & Olufsen. “Until now, speakers with this level of performance had to be wired. Our latest launch uses a robust wireless standard with enough bandwidth and channels to deliver a listening experience the way the artist intended it. Upgrading to premium sound – without downgrading your decor – is now available in three ways.”

Price and Availability
Bang & Olufsen’s BeoLab 17, 18 and 19 wireless speakers will be available November 2013 at the following prices:

  • BeoLab 17: $3,990
  • BeoLab 18: $6,590 (black lamella fronts and floor base or wall bracket or + $1,390 for solid oak)
  • BeoLab 19: $3,395
