HP teams with Bang & Olufsen for premium sound on PCs

A range of HP’s tablets, PCs and accessories will soon incorporate B&O’s quality audio.

HP had been using Beats audio technologies since an agreement in 2011, but when Apple bought out Beats, HP had to look elsewhere for the technology.

Recognising that their customers want good audio for watching movies, playing games and for video communications, HP is now partnering with B&O to continue to meet this market.

Bang & Olufsen is an iconic Scandinavian audio company dating back 90 years.  Two Danish engineers started the company in Denmark in 1925, and the company has become known for its high quality audio products with elegant Scandinavian styling.

It is expected that the Bang & Olufsen brand will appear on HP’s Spectre, OMEN, ENVY and select commercial PCs. The B&O Play brand will appear on HP Pavilion PCs, tablets and PC audio accessories.

In their press release, HP states: “HP and Bang & Olufsen will custom tune each notebook, desktop, tablet and accessory for precise sound. In all HP devices that carry the Bang & Olufsen or B&O PLAY brand, a dedicated audio island isolates the sensitive audio circuits from other signals on the motherboard. The headphone jack limits the amount of metal parts to reduce ground noise to help further perfect the audio experience on HP devices.”

So if you want better audio with your computing, keep an eye out for the new products by HP launching soon.
