- These are the first solutions to come out of the young partnership between Bang & Olufsen and Scuderia Ferrari, the Bang & Olufsen Ferrari Collection.
The new Bang & Olufsen Ferrari Collection is the first result of a partnership between the Danish consumer electronics company Bang & Olufsen and Scuderia Ferrari, which was only concluded in February 2023. In the course of this partnership between Bang & Olufsen and Ferrari, an advertising cooperation was initially agreed, with the Danish company’s logo emblazoned on the Formula 1 cars of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz. In addition, however, a more far-reaching cooperation was also to be part of this partnership, which is now also proven with the presentation of the Bang & Olufsen Ferrari Collection.
The products in this collection are intended to symbolise the two brands’ shared passion for elegance, performance and precision, as the companies state in a corresponding release.
Inspired by super sports cars – The Bang & Olufsen Ferrari Collection
For the first time, the new Bang & Olufsen Ferrari Collection has disregarded an approach that has always been followed, says Bang & Olufsen. Bang & Olufsen’s industrial designers have always strived to develop solutions that fit as seamlessly and harmoniously as possible into the user’s personal living environment.
This is not the case with the products of the Bang & Olufsen Ferrari Collection, these solutions should stand out, should be perfectly in the limelight and thus be a real eye-catcher in every modern living ambience.
“Our classic speakers are designed to fit naturally into people’s homes while standing out with their beautiful design. This collection is different. These are real statement pieces. Much like supercars, they make sure you see and hear them everywhere.”Christoffer Poulsen, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Partnerships at Bang & Olufsen
Reinterpretation of different headphones and speakers
The Bang & Olufsen Ferrari Collection is a product line that reinterprets various Bang & Olufsen headphones and speakers in a particularly distinctive design that focuses on aluminium and the classic red of Ferrari, giving these solutions a completely new character.
“We are very excited about this collaboration. When we teamed up to design this collection, there was a strong sense of history. The collection harks back to the beginnings of B&O and Ferrari. The founders, Enzo Ferrari, Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen, were visionaries who redefined their respective industries by challenging the status quo. Their legacy runs like a thread through the decades, helping both brands reach new heights to this day.
The combination of world-class performance, graceful aesthetics and meticulous craftsmanship brought B&O and Ferrari together to create this collection. Added to this is the unmatched legacy of both brands, making this collaboration an unforgettable event.”Kristian Teär, CEO of Bang & Olufsen
Bang & Olufsen Beosound 2
The Bang & Olufsen Beosound 2 offers a 360° home audio experience that fills any room where it is placed. Its design is so flexible that it can be placed on the floor, on a table or on a shelf. It is also easy to move from one room to another. Active RoomSense and built-in proximity sensors combine the beauty of Beosound 2 with smart technology. A high quality aluminium cone surrounding the speaker ensures a flawless appearance and premium sound quality.
The Bang & Olufsen Beosound 2 from the Ferrari Collection is anodised in Bang & Olufsen’s Factory 5 in Struer, with its design reinterpreted in Ferrari’s signature red. The aluminium body is polished to a high gloss, which makes the red colour stand out even more. The legendary Ferrari emblem is located under the speaker grille and completes this edition.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H95
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H95 is the top of the range Bang & Olufsen headphones, offering premium sound and innovative features. The custom-made titanium drivers deliver sound that is more powerful than ever before. And the Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation can be adjusted by simply turning the aluminium ring on the earcup.
With soft lambskin leather and a playback time of up to 38 hours without interruption, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H95 are built to last.
The headphones are finished in the timelessly classic deep black of Ferrari and feature the laser-engraved Bang & Olufsen logo and the Ferrari prancing horse logo to match. Under the earcups, the speaker covers are anodised titanium in a vibrant shade of red, chosen specifically for this collaboration.
Bang & Olufsen Besound Explorer
The Bang & Olufsen Beosound Explore is a portable speaker that is perfect for outdoor use. It has an IP67 rating, which means that it is designed to be dustproof and waterproof, so you can take it with you wherever you go.
Thanks to Bluetooth and Fast Pairing, music is just a touch away and can be enjoyed all day long with a playback time of up to 27 hours.
The Bang & Olufsen Beosound Explore is now ready for any adventure with the laser-engraved Ferrari prancing horse and a striking black carabiner. The speaker’s two-layered housing is anodised in red and black, so the speaker grille immediately stands out against the dark interior.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX is Bang & Olufsen’s most powerful true wireless headphone. They feature active noise cancellation, unsurpassed sound and come with a wireless charging cradle for up to 20 hours of music enjoyment on the go. Thanks to the six microphones and intelligent beamforming technology, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX can be used for business calls as well as for listening to music.
The Ferrari Collection features an eye-catching black foiled Ferrari emblem logo on the right headphone under a glass that has been cast in the legendary shade of red, cut and polished to create a mirror-like shine.
