Bang & Olufsen promises ‘second-to-none’ experience from new wireless speaker technology

Wireless speakers still aren’t usually the first choice of those primarily concerned with sound quality, but high-end manufacturer Bang & Olufsen is setting out to change that perception with its latest offering. Announced at the CEDIA conference this week, the company’s new wireless speaker platform promises to deliver 24-bit, uncompressed audio to either a pair of speakers or a full 7.1 surround setup. To do that, the platform employs the WiSA open standard, which operates in the 5.2-5.8 GHz range, along with some more proprietary tech from B&O and Summit Semiconductor. The end result of that, the company says, is not only speakers that provide a “second-to-none multi-channel wireless experience,” but ones that are compatible with any WiSA-compliant device. The company isn’t quite ready to show off any new speakers based on the new platform just yet, though; it’s saving that announcement for late October, when a new set of “Immaculate Wireless Sound” speakers is set to debut.

B&O Play H3 and H6 bring Bang & Olufsen’s newer badge to headphones

Bang & Olufsen H3 and H6 bring the B&O Play badge to inear and overear headphones

Bang & Olufsen already offers headphones, and it has the B&O Play line to serve a mobile-oriented world. Wouldn’t it be nice if the two categories mixed? As of today, they do. The B&O Play H3 in-ears and H6 over-ears apply that Danish love of aluminum and leather to the kind of headphones you’d want to pack with your MP3 player or smartphone. The H3 carries 10.8mm drivers, a mini bass port and a 20Hz to 16kHz range in a unibody shape that should hold up to exercise; the slightly more stationary H6 over-ears sport 40mm drivers and a wider 20Hz to 22kHz range. Both have primarily iOS-oriented in-line mics and remotes, although the H6 alone has Monster-sourced daisy chaining support to share tunes with others. Don’t expect a significant break in B&O’s premium pricing just because they’re B&O Play-branded headsets, however. The H3 and H6 will respectively cost €249 and €399 when they hit some retail stores in May, and US pricing isn’t likely to be much cheaper.

Meet Bitplay BANG!, The Lamp You Can “Shoot” From Across The Room

dynamism

A strong chunk of my malleable years was spent lurking under tables, peering around corners, and typically tiptoeing around whenever feasible. I fancied myself a little James Bond (or Weng Weng, considering my heritage) and– odd as it might sound– there’s nothing I would not have provided to have the bitplay BANG! remote controlled lamp help me live out my pre-adolescent fantasies.

And how exactly would that work? Well, placing apart its sleek, minimalist design, the remote to operate the light is a little white weapon. That’s right, if you’re ever before in need of even more light, simply shoot the light to turn it on or off– the gun/remote has a range of just under 50 feet too, so there ’ s no excuse for leaving that lamp on as you roam throughout the residence. Sadly, I haven ’ t been able to identify whether or not the firearm makes that terrific ricocheting bullet noise when it “ fires, ” which would merely put me over the moon.

Even far better, the lampshade automatically tilts itself when “shot” into the off position to finish the result. I expect if you desired to take the monotonous technique, you could constantly just make use of the on/off switch found on the power cord, but where’s the fun in that?

Alas, the lamp includes a pretty significant cost– it’ll set avid spy impersonators back a cool $ 299, and I picture that frequently turning the light on and off just for kicks might require users to stock up on plenty of extras.

Bang & Olufsen launches BeoPlay V1 HDTV and A3 iPad multimedia dock

Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay V1 HDTV press

We’d heard rumors that high-end manufacturer Bang & Olufsen was prepping a new television, and today the company made things official with the introduction of the BeoPlay V1 HDTV. Available in both 32-inch and 40-inch models, the 1080p side-lit LED television features five HDMI inputs, a USB port for playing photos, movies, or music from an external source, and a slot behind the TV so you can tuck away your Apple TV out of sight. Created by designer Anders Hermansen, the television comes in either black or white, and allows owners to slide in one of five different fabric sleeves behind the front grill to give the display a splash of color. In a cool twist, a light sensor built into the front of the V1 dynamically adjusts the contrast of…

The Big Bang Theory S1 and S2 will finally hit Blu-ray July 10th

Image

Considering the usual subject matter of The Big Bang Theory it’s a bit bizarre that the first couple of seasons weren’t already available in high definition, but Warner Home Video has now announced they will be released on Blu-ray July 10th. While later seasons have already seen Blu-ray releases, those looking to start back at the beginning for Leonard, Sheldon, Penny and the rest of the crew had been stuck with DVDs. Assuming you’re a fan of CBS’ comedy series, you can preorder each Blu-ray / DVD combo release now, priced at $ 23.99 for the first season and $ 54.97 for the longer second season. Of course, what we’re really wondering is what this means for other orphaned releases that only have some or none of their seasons available on Blu-ray as studios have shifted strategies, we’re still waiting for How I Met Your Mother season one. Drop a note about any other shows you’re following that have holes in their HD releases in the comments below, or just check out a video clip of the show with the canned laughter cut out — it’s… different.

World’s largest telescope underway, scientists definitely observe big bang

Image

Once again astronomers are observing formative explosions, but this time a little bit closer to home. Three million cubic feet of planet earth is being blasted from the Chilean Andes as work on what will be the world’s largest telescope begins. The location is the Carnegie Institution’s Las Campanas Observatory, and the project is a collaboration between South Korean, Australian and American institutions to create the Giant Magellan Telescope. The first mirror segment is just being completed, and is so precise it, matches its optical prescription to within a millionth of an inch. The project will cost $ 700 million once complete, small change we say for a chance to glimpse light from the edge of the Universe.

It’s just announced its new BeoVision 12-65, a plasma TV that makes use of a so-called NeoPDP panel and some clever design touches that make the 65-inch set appear as thin as possible. It’s also naturally full HD and 3D compatible, and it packs an integrated center channel speaker that can be paired with a surround sound setup. Alongside it, B&O has also debuted its new BeoLab 12 loudspeakers, which pack a total of 480W and once again place a heavy emphasis on style.

Bang & Olufsen BeoVision 12 3D TV and BeoLab 12 loudspeaker hands-on

via cdn1.sbnation.com

Bang & Olufsen’s introduced its new BeoVision 12 and BeoLab 12 television and loudspeaker systems at CES, and we got a chance to check them out for ourselves. The BeoVision is a 65-inch 3D plasma TV with integrated 7.1 surround sound speakers. To our eyes, the 3D looks very good, with a bright screen and rich colors — of course, you’re going to have to shell out $ 11,350 to get your hands on one (or $ 19,749 if you want to throw in B&O’s proprietary video engine and sound processor). You can expect the BeoVision 12 to land in late February or March.

The BeoLab 12 loudspeakers are beasts of their own, each including two 6.5-inch subwoofers, one 2-inch midrange speaker, and one 3/4-inch tweeter, all providing 480 watts total audio power….
