Bang and Olufsen is a familiar brand to audiophiles for their sleek, minimalist design schemes. And their latest products, the Beolab 15 & 16, take that aesthetic to a whole new level.
The idea for the speakers came from Band and Olufsen’s work developing audio systems for luxury car manufacturers Mercedes and BMW. They’re built inside the walls of your home, staying almost completely out of sight (and designed to stick out, if necessary, for tilt-based sound-channeling), while delivering high-quality sound at the same time.
Building speakers into your walls has drawbacks, but Band and Olufsen have taken care of them with built-in cooling systems and Acoustic-Balance-Principal-utilizing designs, which prevent unwelcome vibrations. For all this, be prepared to spend around $4,595. You can check out Bang and Olufsen’s website for more info.
