Bang & Olufsen's new speaker might look like a PS5 because it's tackling a similar problem: How to give complex hardware the smallest footprint possible.

B&O's Beosound Emerge speaker features a Flatiron Building-style vertical design that, though slim, houses an upgradeable electronic system with aluminum heat syncs to disperse heat and reaches everywhere in the room with full range and ultra-wide sound.

The ultra-slim profile contains a driver configuration finely tuned by Bang & Olufsen engineers. The 4-inch woofer produces omnidirectional low frequencies no matter where it is pointing, while the compact 1.45-inch mid-range driver and 0.6-inch tweeter are arranged at the top for maximum impact.

Hitting the market globally this fall, the discrete speakers look like no other offering on the market. Instead, it looks like a design object that sits tastefully and unobtrusively in a contemporary interior — from a bookshelf in the bedroom to a tight corner in the kitchen.

Arriving in a textured, black plastic body with a black aluminum grill, or wood and tweed, the Emerge slots into a shelf like a book, yet produces the kind of sound you might expect from a more generous sound system. Take a closer look via the gallery above.
