Bang & Olufsen specializes in the art of sound reproduction. Ever since 1925, we have aimed at putting the listener in touch with the music. Now, we bring our expertise into your car.
Our starting point was that while most car passengers may spend hours listening to their favorite music, the quality and performance of car audio systems has not followed the rapid development of the car itself. With the launch of the first Bang & Olufsen sound system for a car, the Audi top-of-the line A8 in 2005, Bang & Olufsen redefined the segment for car-audio by increasing the joy of ownership and use of the sound system.
Bang & Olufsen’s ability to redefine car audio is based on decades of research and development in the field of acoustics. This has given Bang & Olufsen its position as one of the leading manufacturers of loudspeakers in the world.
A car is one of the most difficult environments in which to achieve pure sound. Road noise, the engine, the wind and the limited space conspire to deaden what you hear. This is why our passionate sound engineers have dedicated themselves to the task of making sure that your ears are coated in rich, deep sound, whether you are cruising along a country road, flying down the autobahn or standing still. The Bang & Olufsen sound system will bring you as near as possible audio can to the experience of being in a concert hall.
More than 100 engineers at Bang & Olufsen work within the field of acoustics. They are involved very early in the development of vehicles that will have our sound systems and often find very effective and innovative solutions for integrating the system with the vehicle.
Bang & Olufsen’s philosophy has always been to produce a pure, authentic sound that is as true and as distinct as the original source.
We believe in creating audio equipment that precisely reproduces the timbre of the music, where the purity of each voice and each instrument strikes you to the very core. Every detail and the passion which brought the music to life should communicate itself to the listener and, collectively, create a natural and coherent impression that inspires and moves the listener. Such should be the purity of the music that, even at high volumes, it never distorts.
More than this, we believe that the quality of audio reproduction should never tire the listener. Its emphasis on accurate reproduction must never be allowed to dominate the music.
The most advanced technologies are needed to reproduce sound accurately. This is why we strive to build them into our systems. They are not led by technology, but use it to bring the listener and the sound closer together.
