- Where to Buy
Bang & Olufsen's most versatile speaker ever. This sleek and compact speaker can be placed anywhere in your room, in any setup you prefer. Designed by Noto, the Beolab 8 is incredibly flexible. You can use it on its own or as part of a complete sound system. And for easy customisation, B&O created the most versatile and user-friendly stand programme in the brand's history. A modular mounting system with a Y-shaped spline at its core allows for a wide range of movement possibilities.
The design concept combines elements of a sphere and a cylindrical shape, featuring an orbital cut that opens at the front to accommodate the drivers while maintaining structural strength. The speaker's volume is divided into distinct parts, visually minimising its size, yet each element, from the shell to the front, back, and top, serves a functional purpose beyond aesthetics.
Ease of customisation is clearly a priority, with toolless removal of the front cover and aluminium parts. Access to the Mozart module at the back allows for platform updates without requiring a full disassembly.
The Beolab 8 is designed for longevity, with a focus on repairability and updates to ensure an extended product life. It aligns with Cradle-to-Cradle principles, aimed at proactive design for a sustainable future.
Functionality-wise, the speaker shares key features with other family members, including a discreet light indicator for beam-width control. Its minimal design harmoniously fits within the existing product range, with elegant curves and smooth sides consistent with the design language of Beosound Theatre, Beolab 28, and Beolab 50, creating a unified product family with shared geometric shapes at its core.
