Bang & Olufsen, one of the most recognized names in the car audio and visual equipment, has just released that it has a new automotive client, Merdedes’ high end performance division, AMG, thus enriching the portfolio which also included Audi and, more recently, Aston Martin.
This new partnership between AMG and B&O has made quite a few people in both companies smile. On the AMG side, Chairman of the Management Board, Volker Mornhinweg stated that “Mercedes-AMG represents high performance and exclusivity. The same is true of Bang & Olufsen’s in-car sound systems. Jointly, we are therefore able to meet Mercedes-AMG customers’ expectations to sound systems.”. On the B&O side, President and CEO of the company, Karl Kristian Hvidt Nielsen also stated that previous experience with Audi will be developed even more by this new partnership, “The agreement enables Bang & Olufsen to further utilize the expertise and processes we have built up in order to meet the requirements of the automotive industry, and, of course, Mercedes-AMG is also an interesting partner for Bang & Olufsen because the cars are sold across the world.”.
This comes as great news for future Mercedes drivers as the regular sound system in the cars wasn’t really that good, at higher volume, the sound becoming really distorted.
