Bang & Olufsen’s BeoSound 8 “More Than A Dock”

By P. Joseph

Launched in May 2010, the BeoSound 8 speaker dock for iDevices has grown to become the best selling audio product in Bang & Olufsen's distinguished 86-year history.

Delivering seamless sound performance combined with the Danish audio manufacturer’s trademark elegant design, the BeoSound 8 offers a highly flexible solution for enjoying digital music, and can be fitted on both a wall bracket or on any flat surface.

Available in black or white, the cone shaped speakers are designed to complement the aesthetic environment of any area of a house, including a main room, kitchen or patio. A variety of optional soft coloured speaker fronts are also available, whilst the distinct Bang & Olufsen look and feel is further enhanced by aluminium rings outlining the speakers.

In addition, the luxurious speakers also come with a manual room adaptation switch with 3 positions which allow them to be placed anywhere without compromising the sound performance.

Meanwhile another innovative function of the BeoSound8 is that it can be networked using the Apple Airport Express, enabling users to stream their music collection wirelessly from their PC or Mac to the dock.

Founded in 1925 by Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen, Bang & Olufsen has grown to become one of the world’s most renowned designers and makers of high-end audio products, television sets and telephones.
