Are Bang & Olufsen Products Worth It?

What is Bang & Olufsen?

Bang & Olufsen is a brand that’s been around for almost one hundred years (!) providing expertise in the audio-visual industry. The brand was founded by dynamic duo Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen who both combined their love for Scandinavian design with their engineering proficiency.

With a rich heritage, a global audience, and a selection of high-performance sound products – we thought we’d explore the burning question on everyone’s lips, are Bang & Olufsen products worth it?

Are Bang & Olufsen Products Worth It? 

In short, YES.

Now an international design icon and recognised internationally, the Bang & Olufsen brand is renowned for its high-end quality speakers, headphones and sound accessories and is loved by athletes, musicians and creators galore.

Bang & Olufsen’s reputation speaks for itself, but are their range of audio products worth the price tag? We asked 3x creators what they thought and why…

Why Bang & Olufsen?

To be honest, I’m a bit of a nerd for sound quality. I have a love for clean, timeless design and I feel that Bang & Olufsen really encompasses that as a brand! Their products are created with both design and sound quality at heart.

Pick your top Bang & Olufsen product:

For sure the Beoplay E8 Sport Wireless In Ear Earphones.

 

 

What do you use these for?

Honestly; everything!

For work, on walks, runs, travel and at home. I’ll probably have these glued to my ears, you can ask my girlfriend, I love listening to my music.

Who’s on repeat?

I’ve found it comforting revisiting a lot of the albums that I used to listen to in the past. It’s like coming back with a fresh pair of ears and made me appreciate the music even more than I did back then.

I’ve mostly been listening to a lot of Electronica recently, stuff like Bonobo, Maribou State and Moderat y’know? But I’ll occasionally mix it up with some Hip Hop or Metal just to keep things interesting!

Why Bang & Olufsen?  

I am obsessed with beautiful design and exceptional sound quality. Music gives me life. Bang & Olufsen brings all these elements together!

 I also love Scandi design, partially because I grew up in Finland! 

Pick your top Bang & Olufsen product:

Beosound A1 2.0 Portable Bluetooth Speaker. It’s light, fully dust and waterproof and has 18 hours of playtime! 

 

 

What do you use this for?

 To make some moves. Music makes me move!

I use it at home to set the mood, to dance, to create choreography, to do yoga – honestly everything!

The portable speakers are also handy when I’m working on TV / Film sets doing movement direction. It’s super easy to carry around for rehearsals.

What’s On Repeat?

 Laura Mvula’s new upcoming album is going to be a killer! I’ve been coaching and creating movement for her live streams, the new tracks are epic. 

 My boyfriend and I love listening to music, not just having it on in the background but REALLY listening and tuning into it!

 Currently on repeat – ’#15’ by Aphex Twin.
