Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 8 Breaks Cover

The company has been offering up different speaker systems for music devices like the iPod for a while now in the BeoSound line and the latest offering in the family is the new BeoSound 8. The device has the fancy design that Bang & Olufsen are known for with designs and materials that are as important as how the gear performs.

The new BeoSound 8 has been designed to work well for listing to music in any room. The device has B&O room adaption switch technology where the device can adapt the sound to be ideal for any room small or large. The tech has a switch that lets the user choose if the BeoSound 8 is in a corner, on a flat wall, or in the center of the room. The docking station also has adaptive bass linearization technology that takes extra power inside the integrated amps at normal listening volume and uses that power to improve the bass the device offers.

There are still a bunch of docking stations for the iPod and other Apple devices on the market that require you to put a plastic holder into the dock port for each device you use to ensure a snug fit. The BeoSound 8 uses an adjustable connector that will adjust to fit any device from an iPod, to the iPhone, all the way up to the iPad. There are now plastic trays required with the thing. It will support any dockable iPod and can charge and play music from the players at the same time.

The dock ships with a remote control, a wall mount, a tablet stand, and can be had in either silver or black frame versions with white or black fabric. Other fabric colors are optional to let the device fit in better with the room it is placed in. The BeoSound 8 measures 26" x 9.4" x 6.5" and weighs 9.35 pounds. The effective frequency range is 38.3 - 24,000 Hz and it has a USB input to allow the docking of other music devices. The thing will ship in December at a price reported to be £895.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
