Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system

A framework for the future

When matching brands come together, spectacular things can happen. Bang & Olufsen and BMW combine an unrelenting quest for technical excellence and an uncompromising commitment to quality and style, with the Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system as the perfect embodiment of this philosophy

Concert experience

In motion


Dynamic sound of a dynamic world

The BMW 5 Series, BMW 6 Series and BMW 7 Series models as well as the BMW X5 are equipped with the innovative Bang & Olufsen high-end Surround Sound system. It brings supreme listening pleasure and a magnificent driving sensation to merge into one unique experience.

For a perfect sound stage and maximum authenticity on every seat, the Acoustic Lens Technology adapts sound. Sixteen active speakers (twelve in the BMW 6 Series Convertible) with a total of 1,200 watts (1,000 watts in the BMW 6 Series Convertible) produce music in brilliant quality. Just as in an orchestra, instruments and vocals assume their exact position and create musical enjoyment fit for a concert hall.

An automatically retracting centre speaker houses a mid-range driver and the acoustic lens. It is this acoustic lens that guarantees brilliant surround-sound in all seats and distributes the sound to provide constant audio quality in every part of the vehicle. Acoustic options can be selected: in “Studio” mode a clear sound emerges, while in “Expanded” mode the acoustic space appears enlarged, thus creating an incomparable surround-sound experience.

The artistically elegant styling matches the high level of sound quality: speaker trims appear to hover thanks to the floating design. The centre speaker opens whenever music starts up. Fully aluminium speaker trims with their precise perforation pattern are characteristic of the Bang & Olufsen design. Every viewing angle reveals perfect lines in harmony with the design of the BMW models.


  • BMW Individual 6 Series Gran Coupe “Bang & Olufsen Edition”

    The BMW Individual 6 Series Gran Coupe “Bang & Olufsen Edition” exemplifies the design and engineering process of the two luxury-sector manufacturers. In a special edition clearly designed for seekers of exceptional luxury and exclusivity, Bang & Olufsen’s high-end Surround Sound system delivers a sound quality and visual drama that is in complete synergy with BMW’s vision. For this limited edition that will be sold exclusively in the US market Bang & Olufsen has designed bespoke aluminum speaker grilles, for which it has developed an exclusive brushed black finish, alongside surprising LED illumination. The system also features Bang & Olufsen’s signature motorized tweeter, which rises from out of the dashboard.

    To celebrate the success of the Bang & Olufsen home and mobile audio range, each BMW Individual 6 Series Gran Coupe Bang & Olufsen Edition comes with a black BeoPlay H6 high-end, over-ear headphone. Each BeoPlay H6 is finished in the same brushed aluminum finish as the car’s loudspeaker grilles.
