Bang & Olufsen Sound System

Sound System - Designed by Our Best Ears

Through numerous hours of listening and the use of complex digital signal processing, Bang & Olufsen sound designers have created a unique sound tuning that matches the acoustic signature of the Audi models perfectly. 14 loudspeakers, 15 amplifier channels and a total output power of more than 700 watts adds to the perfectly composed soundstage in front of the listener. Bang & Olufsen`s general sound philosophy remains consistent. On average more than 400 hours are spent in the car by the Bang & Olufsen Automotive Acoustic Team. 

Added Functions, Uncomplicated Operation

The seamless integration also applies to the operation of the sound system, which is fully integrated with Audi’s built-in Multi Media Interface so operating the Bang & Olufsen Sound System is as intuitive as you would expect from Bang & Olufsen. In addition, this fully integrated in-car sound system is supported by proprietary True Image technology.


Sonic Intelligence

The Bang & Olufsen Sound System uses a microphone integrated in the ceiling of the cockpit to measure changing noise conditions, and automatically adapts the volume and balance accordingly. At the same time, the intelligent loudness system ensures that the perceived balance of bass, mid-range and treble remains constant at all volume levels to ensure clean, crisp and precise sound. The result: The listening experience is perfectly tailored to the car and the driving conditions and the sound quality is on a constantly superior level.
