B&O speakers could use a little makeup
They probably sound great, but the design comes up short in our book.
Some of us at Crave are an admittedly superficial lot, one that's particularly taken with just about anything that comes from the designers at. But not this time.
The Danish company's "BeoLab 3" speakers seem kind of like a high-tech interpretation of the emperor's clothes--they look almost naked, but we're supposed to laud their innovative design. Given B&O's track record, however, we have little doubt that they'll provide quality sound; according to Luxurylaunches, each unit houses three drivers with a tweeter positioned on top like a periscope, all the while employing Acoustic Lens Technology. It's just that, with these particular aluminum-and-rubber models, we wouldn't feel as if we were getting our money's worth for $3,200.
