World renowned for a distinctive range of quality audio, picture and multimedia products since 1925, Bang & Olufsen has opened its doors on Melrose Arch’s High Street. B&O flagship speaker, the BeoLab 5, uses digital signal processing to adjust its frequency response to the room and location in which it is placed. Its midrange and treble spread the sound over a 180-degree range in order to fill the room, overcoming the directional range limitations of normal midrange and treble drivers, and preventing the sound from reflecting off the ceiling and floor before reaching the listener. A distinctive design appeal, often described as “quality media delivery via striking objects”. B&O’s work with radios and loudspeakers has led them to value high fidelity musical reproduction uninfluenced by technological limitations; “honest music reproduction”. To this end, psychoacoustics has been, and remains important to designing B&O products.
