This time the two partners have come up with another unique sound system in a matchless car. Meet the Bang & Olufsen Sound System designed specially for the Audi A5 Coupe.

Within the industry and among end-users, Bang & Olufsen is considered the most prestigious consumer audio brand in the world. In recent years, the company has strengthened this brand position by entering the automotive audio industry. Our sound systems have made Bang & Olufsen the most desirable brand for automotive audio systems, and today Bang & Olufsen is a world leader in quality-driven sound systems for high-end cars.

This position has been achieved by combining decades of experience in developing superb sound with complete born-with-the-car integration of sound and visual design. Last year, the Advanced Sound System for the Audi A8 and S8 won one of the most prestigious car sound system awards, and leading car magazines like Auto, Motor und Sport and Auto Express have characterized the Advanced Sound System as nothing short of a revolution surpassing all other automotive audio systems.

Tested and proven

The Bang & Olufsen Sound System for the Audi A5 comes from a fine line of sound systems developed especially for Audi. Like its precursors, this innovative audio system offers the perfect combination of sound and vision with its strong performance, integrated operation and dynamic design that matches the sporty look and feel of the Audi A5 perfectly.

Music is an indispensable part of modern life, and so good sound reproduction is more important than ever. With the sound system for the A5, there is no compromise in this respect. Surrounding the driver and passengers with sound from its 14 speakers, the 500 watt system completes the driving experience much as the unique design of the aluminium rings integrated in the speaker grills merge seamlessly with the cool interior of the Coupe.

The quality of the sound system has been tested and proven by the best Tonmeisters in the trade. And the audio system for the A5 incorporates the same proven technologies, competencies and philosophy as the Bang & Olufsen Sound System presented in the stunning Audi R8. In other words, yet another car-audio system has been added to the family of high quality automotive audio systems from Bang & Olufsen.

New standard in this segment

“With the recent introduction of the Bang & Olufsen Sound System in the R8, we introduced a new audio platform as a supplement to the successful Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System in Audi A8 and S8. Now, we are very pleased to build on our R8 audio platform in the brand new Audi A5,” says Jens Peter Zinck, Managing Director for Bang & Olufsen Automotive.

“By so doing, we are able to set a new standard for fully integrated and attractive sound in this segment – a sound that is designed to please not only the ears but also the eyes of the owners,” Jens Peter Zinck adds.

Expanding on the extremely successful cooperation with Audi, the Bang & Olufsen Sound System for the Audi A5 Coupe is the first high-end, integrated system in this class of car. Most of our competitors offer sound systems, not integrated solutions, but to Bang & Olufsen and our end-users standard is not an option. We’ll settle for nothing less than the best sound along with integrated design and operation, and that is one of the reasons Bang & Olufsen offers unique brand-value.
