In their AGM, B&O touted that they have more than 10 new products in the pipeline.

Now, as we have launches such as H95 and the new floor stand for Stage, I'd like to keep a list of said new products. Are they Gen 2 products, headphones or accessories?

H95 probably was one of the new products. Maybe the Stage floor stand was another. And Halo is very interesting.

Which releases will get us to 10+ products, and how will they shape B&O's portfolio?

From past experience ( last dealer meeting in Cannes approx 2008?? ) I would expect  it’ll be the same cr8p in different colours?

Would love it if there were some new innovative products.

When B&O do the things well it is a joy, but for over 10 yeas now it’s been a pain!

Could it be that the BS Balance is counted as 1 of 10?

- BS Balance

- Stage stand

- H95

- Halo remote

- TV stand for Harmony

- Horizon update

I would believe that B&O counts ‘stand’ with some added functionality of any kind as a ‘new’ product.

Let’s wait and see ...

If Balance is taken into account, you should also add the Harmony 88!

Another one:

- Beolit 20, as the successor of the Beolit 17. Somewhere in winter 2020 or spring 2021.

I can see this happening sooner rather than later.

B&O is going to prioritise products which which will generate the quickest and biggest returns. I wouldn't expect brand new major big hitting releases which need intensive dealer support and so on. I'd expect to see more consumer-led products and updates to existing bigger-selling products.

As much as we're all lauding this CX/C9 + Stage stand, it's actually a very basic product with a relatively high markup.

I really hope the 20 will have NL-support!

Ah, when was the AGM, so if they are set to launch 10 new products, it would have been from that point.

I wonder if new colours is a new product, or new product means all-new product.

The AGM was on August 20, 2020.

Therefore I'd count the new products from there(abouts) onwards.

So:

H95

Stage floor stand

Do we have a date(ish) when this was communicated? It would be nice to have a reference point in time.

I think the Motorized Rotating Stand for Harmony counts as a new product Smile

The Beolit20 turned up in the FCC ID database. Looks like it's going to be bluetooth only... and probably not released before mid February 2021. (Short-Term Confidentiality)

I wonder, if there is something in the category ‘gaming’ coming.

The launch of the new Xbox is very soon - and a cooperation with Microsoft was already hinted.

Following on from claiming new colours to be new products they are soon to start classifying anything sold in pairs (headphones) as two products.

Ban boring signatures!

Sure - must be headphones.

But it can’t just be ‘headphones’ with an Xbox/B&O logo.....that would be ridiculoous.

Immmersive audio is a big thing for gamers.

At least it must be something with a built-in microphone - maybe wireless.....

Obviously B&O is expecting to benefit in this market.

Disclaimer!  Not being a gamer I really have no idea of what a gamer would expect from a ‘new’ headset.

Yes they already do that. Indifferent
I can understand that they want to sell a lot but why say 10 new things if they are not really new??? New colors don't make a product new
