Beolab 28 speaker’s stereo performance explained

Active loudspeaker technology and Active Room Compensation

The Bang & Olufsen speakers utilize 1250 watts of pure power and a frequency range of 27 Hz to 28 KHz. Combined with active loudspeaker technology, these speakers deliver exceptional clarity and depth from a sound system that’s designed to last. Additionally, the speakers sport three custom-driver 3″ drivers and tweeters that are placed for high sensitivity and optimum direction. Designed with a 6.5″ woofer, these speakers direct the sound downwards for powerful bass and a minimalistic profile.

Moreover, these Bang & Olufsen speakers feature Active Room Compensation that optimizes the low end based on the speaker’s position as well as the room size. Therefore, you’ll receive plenty of freedom over where to position the speakers to receive the perfect playback every time.

Narrow and Wide listening modes

The Beolab 28 speakers boast two modes: Narrow and Wide. Narrow mode provides a more focused listening where every note reaches your ears by reflecting from walls or objects. As a result, you can experience ultra-precise listening. Alternatively, Wide mode delivers a fuller, more impactful, sound to everyone in the room. A great scenario for using this mode is during dinner parties for full-impact audio.

Slender silhouette and numerous connectivity options

These Bang & Olufsen speakers not only sound great, but they look the part, too. They’re available in premium fabrics, handcrafted wood, and aluminum. Finished with a slender silhouette and 25 cm footprint, Beolab 28 becomes a home accessory as well as a fully functional speaker. The tall, slim design allows you to place these speakers virtually anywhere in the house without space being an issue.

Furthermore, the speakers support multiple connectivity options, including AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 5.0. You also receive physical connections such as Ethernet and Powerlink. The speakers also come with a remote or you can use the app for controlling music.

You can purchase the new Beolab 28 speakers on Bang & Olufsen’s official website. After hearing what these speakers have to offer, do you think they’re worth the $14,750+ price tag? Share your thoughts in the comments.
