Audi Bang and Olufsen®

Advanced Sound System


Audi was the first automaker to partner with Danish advanced sound expert Bang & Olufsen®, whose focus on both design and performance is a perfect match for the Bavarian luxury carmaker. The A8/S8 model lines are considered the flagship of all that Audi has to offer, and were the first models to introduce the collaboration between the carmaker and Bang & Olufsen® at the start of the 2007 model year in the United States.


Advanced Sound System

Since the release of optional Bang & Olufsen® Advanced Sound System in the A8/S8 model range, several other Audi models now feature sound developed by the Danish sound expert. Learn more about Audi models with the Bang & Olufsen® Advanced Sound System.
