Beolab 28

Bang & Olufsen

Powerful sound in a slender design

With the Beolab 28, we have defined a new level of acoustic performance in the B&O column speaker category by transforming the base into a powerful woofer cabinet, keeping a slim appearance that complements any interior. As a floor-standing or wall-mounted design.

The legacy of B&O speakers continues

Column speakers have a strong heritage at Bang & Olufsen. They create elegance and great impression in the smallest space.

In our long-term partnership with B&O, we pursue a holistic vision that focuses on both the tradition and future of the brand. Noto’s design of the Beolab28 completes the high-end speaker portfolio while reflecting future living in the home.

The curtains open, and the magic begins

When turned on, the speaker opens its wooden curtains for a magical cinematic experience.

The Beam Width Control can be adjusted in two ways: Narrow mode focuses the sound to create a directed sweet spot by minimizing sidewall reflections. Wide mode opens up the listening area and fills the room with rich and colorful sound.

The intuitive touch user interface we designed on top of the device allows easy handling directly at the speaker, making it the first of its kind in this category.
