Bang & Olufsen set to bring high-end audio to Xbox Series X

Bang & Olufsen

Bang & Olufsen has officially shared a press release announcing that it is partnering with Microsoft’s Xbox to create high-end audio equipment designed for gaming.

In the press release, Bang & Olufsen vice president and head of product management, Christoffer Poulsen, cited the growth the gaming industry has experienced over the past few years and its increasingly diverse global audience. As gaming technology continues to advance, Poulsen said that the company sees an opportunity to leverage its own expertise.

“By entering the gaming industry, we want to do what we do best: delivering outstanding sound performance wrapped in astonishing design and solid craftmanship,” he noted. “We see a big commercial potential within gaming, and in Xbox we believe we have found the ideal partner to realise that potential.”

Bang & Olufsen is primarily known for producing extremely high-quality audiovisual products. Further details are yet to be announced on the partnership.

Xbox head of hardware partnerships Matt Kesselring added that: “As we march towards release – we’re excited to partner with Bang & Olufsen to bring a new premium tier of gaming audio to market for Xbox and Bang & Olufsen fans around the world that travels with you everywhere you love to play Xbox.”

As a big fan of both brands, I cannot wait to see what happens.
