Our technological breakthroughs never seek technology as an end.
Acoustic lenses spread the high frequencies horizontally around the room so that they cover more of the listening area while reducing reflections from the floor or ceiling. Walk around a room and the Bang & Olufsen sound performance remains unchanged.
Adaptive Bass Linearisation delivers great bass from small speakers by harnessing surplus capacity in the amplifier and driver unit. We extend a speaker’s bass output far beyond what it would normally produce and automatically adjust it for excessive peaks.

Sophisticated from the inside out
Beolab 20 is a truly powerful speaker, designed with an elegant and surprisingly compact appearance. With the body almost entirely draped in your choice of high-quality fabric, this stylish speaker easily adapts to its surroundings.
Hear it and believe it.
Very few speakers can rival the formidable combination of power and poise of the Beolab 20. At the heart of its refined acoustic performance is a custom-built digital sound engine, that’s refined to optimise every single component inside this wireless speaker.
Putting the highs on a pedestal
The crowning glory of Beolab 20 is the Acoustic Lens that delivers smooth high-frequency sound in full 180 degrees. The results are uncompromising listening experiences across your room and much greater freedom in terms of where you place your speaker for optimal sound.
Creating the perfect lows
To deliver precise and intensive bass without the risk of damaging your speaker at high volumes, our Adaptive Bass Linearisation technology constantly monitors and adapts the speaker’s bass performance.
Superior sound from any position
Every speaker will sound different depending on its position in a room. Beolab 20 features our innovative room adaptation technology that optimises the audio performance based on your speaker’s actual placement in a corner, against a wall or free-standing.
ACOUSTIC LENS TECHNOLOGY (ALT)
The benefit of ALT is a 180-degree horizontal dispersion of the upper frequencies, leading to uniform sound characteristics in the area in front of the loudspeaker allowing you to place yourself more freely and still get an optimal experience.
