Bang & Olufsen Beolab 3: Speakers From Another Planet

by Paul Strauss

I came across these dramatic little speakers from Bang & Olufsen and they really caught my eye. Not only do they look like no other speakers I’ve ever seen, they’re supposed to sound pretty amazing too.

Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 3 Speakers

The BeoLab 3 series of speakers is small enough to use with a computer or media player, but also produce big enough sound to fill a room. They’re capable of handling up to 250 watts of power, and feature a B&O’s unique “acoustic lens technology,” which is said to produce a 180-degree sound field that creates an optimal listening experience no matter where you are in the room.

The compact speakers measure in at 6.4″ x 5.2″ x 8.8″, are crafted from solid aluminum housings and come with a rubber base for tabletop use. They come in black, dark gray, red or blue finishes, and mounting options ranging from simply putting them on a desktop or bookshelf, to floor-mounted metal stands in a couple of different heights. If you’re looking for a little extra punch, Bang & Olufsen also offers a matched subwoofer, called the BeoLab 2.

As is always the case with Bang & Olufsen goods, working-class folks need not apply. BeoLab 3 speakers retail for about $3200 a pair, while the BeoLab 2 subwoofer will set you back about $2850. But they sure look good.

    those look supercool, but the price is nutty cuckoo.

  3. AJ says:

    They are not supposed to handle 250 Watts. They have two 125 Watts class D amplifiers built in each loudspeaker!!!

    Really? That’s different than I originally thought.

  5. GussyNOtv says:

    It is also noted that the company refuses to service in one country equipment bought in another, even when the local infrastructure to do so exists. Diplomats, expatriates, international shoppers, people on the move, should think twice before acquiring B&O products

    • Sérgio says:

      In Brazil they would be obliged by law to service any equipment bought anywhere. As long as the owner presents a prof of the purchase, it doesn`t matter where it was originally bought.
      Service here is guaranteed.

    To clarify – each speaker has a 125Watt tweeter and a 125Watt Amplifier. Each speaker has a total output power of 250Watts or 500Watts combined. However, the maximum sustained power recommend by B&O engineers is 220Watts or 440Watts combined. I have a set of Mk3s in White – the sound is astonishing for their size. Engineering perfection!
