BeoCom 4 -- Form and Function, Redefined
Standing upright, this two component handset and base combination
offers exceptional convenience and unrivalled ease-of-use. BeoCom 4 is Bang
& Olufsen's latest masterpiece that is asymmetrically divided into two
halves and therefore provides a high level of interaction. When placed
together the two units form a distinct tower, when apart they offer two
separate, fully functioning visual identities.
BeoCom 4 is very light weight and is operated through a smooth, raised
wheel located on the handset. The wheel is navigated with one-step thumb
operation allowing the user to scroll through the built in phone book and
call list. High sound quality reproduction from the built in loudspeaker is
ensured by a combination of Bang & Olufsen skills in acoustics and advanced
digital signal processing. The handset, consisting of a loudspeaker and
microphone, is built upon the same design concept as our award winning
earphones, where individual adaptation to each user is applied.
BeoCom 4 features a smooth and durable surface, ensured by an extensive
ultra violet lacquering process which produces a highly scratch-resistant
surface. BeoCom 4 comes in black, blue, and beige, has caller ID and call
waiting functionality. MSRP $350.00 USD
BeoLab 4 PC/MAC -- The Ultimate Computer Loudspeaker
BeoLab 4 is the first dedicated and self amplified PC and MAC based
computer loudspeaker from Bang & Olufsen which offers a very compact design
with robust sound. BeoLab 4 is the perfect solution for those who rely on
computers for any and all sources of entertainment. Given the increasing
role music plays on the development of computer games and digital music
sharing and listening, Bang & Olufsen has come up with the ultimate
solution to enhance the listening experience.
Based on our proprietary digital ICEpower(R) amplifier technology,
BeoLab 4 enables very large sound to be produced from such a small speaker
shape. With its unconventional pyramid-structure, BeoLab 4 is approx. 8
inches high and 9 inches wide, yet it delivers impeccable range within the
entire audio spectrum, from deep bass to high treble.
BeoLab 4 is an intelligent loudspeaker that automatically adjusts the
bass according to the volume level. When playing at normal volume, the bass
provides the foundation for a natural "soundscape". Conversely, the bass is
adjusted downwards when the volume is high, to avoid damaging the bass
unit. This self adjusting patented system by Bang & Olufsen is called ABL
(Adaptive Bass Linearization), and it has proven its worth in our
loudspeakers for many years. BeoLab 4 connects easily to a PC or a Mac
using a normal mini-jack plug and is immediately ready to use for plug and
play operation. It can also link up to the BeoSound 2 MP3 player or any
other MP3 player on the market. BeoLab 4 is available in red, blue and
black. MSRP is $990.00 USD
