If you are a Music Aficionado, you would agree with us that Bang & Olufsen manufactures the world’s best audio sound systems and speakers.
Founded in 1925 by Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen, Bang & Olufsen has come a long way and this year, the world’s oldest audio company is commemorating its 90th birthday with the Love Affair Collection.
The Love Affair Collection sees six of the company’s current products rejuvenated with a new palette option in keeping with the surge in interest towards beautiful materials, especially rose gold, which is experiencing a renaissance in the jewellery industry. One of the most emotive aspects is its underlying meaning. While white gold represents friendship and yellow gold means fidelity, rose gold represents love and is therefore the ultimate inspiration for this collection.
During the roaring 20s, Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen started their journey into technology when it was still an almost magical phenomenon, and with the accompanying flourish of Art Deco, it was clear that luxury, glamour, and exuberance were at the heart of the time.
Fast-forward 90 years and the company is pleased to launch a collection that truly captures the mood and style of the time, setting the stage for a love affair that could last the ages.
Combined with the warm colour fabrics recently developed in cooperation with Fashion Designer Stine Goya, the company hopes it will truly capture the hearts of customers who have enjoyed a love affair with the company over the years.
The radiant and romantic rose golden nuance is achieved through a unique dyeing process, which in itself inspires Bang & Olufsen’s designers to create concepts that can match any style and any age, where the only limit is their imagination. This, combined with warm and elegant walnut wood, bridges past and present to represent the passion, pride and persistence that has been driving Bang & Olufsen for the last 90 years.
The Love Affair Collection consists of six current Bang & Olufsen’s products.
The first is the majestic and recently launched BeoVision Avant 85, and then the all-in one entertainment solution BeoVision 11 and BeoRemote One. Also included in the range is the extremely popular magic-touch BeoPlay A9 music system and the elegant, lightweight BeoPlay H6 headphones.
Last but certainly not least, the collection will include the classic, slender, and straight-lined BeoLab 18 with a new walnut lamella front and a cabinet in a stunningly elegant rose golden version.
Though all of the six Bang & Olufsen’s products captured our hearts, the one that stood out for us is the elegant and lightweight BeoPlay H6 headphones that is retailing at SGD$698.
The BeoPlay H6 combines a natural and authentic sound performance with carefully selected, high-quality materials that rest softly and comfortably on the head, bringing a true sense of everyday luxury.
The softness of the lambskin on the ear pads is the first thing one will notice and the memory foam inside the ear pads adapts ensuring great comfort.
The head band is also very durable and it ages with grace because of the cow leather that gains patina and personality when worn over time.
This stylish over-ear headphones made from premium materials definitely deserves a mention for delivering top of the line sound quality.
