Bang & Olufsen’s Ferrari Collection Will Have You Seeing Red in a Good Way

Forza Bang & Olufsen? The new Ferrari Collection from the Danish high-end audio manufacturer pays homage to the Italian automaker with 4 limited edition products.

Bang & Olufsen Ferrari Collection 2023

Collaborations between high-end audio brands and luxury automakers have proven to be a mixed bag over the past 20 years, but there is a lot of positive momentum right now when you look at the success of the partnerships between Sonus faber and Maserati, McIntosh and Jeep, Bowers & Wilkins and Aston Martin, KEF and Lotus.

Bang & Olufsen are deeply involved in the luxury car audio experience with a number of automakers, but those are specifically tied to car audio systems and not products for the home.

Ferrari Sports Car

The new Bang & Olufsen Ferrari Collection aims to fill that gap with a limited-edition series of products that combine their latest wireless headphones, IEMs, and loudspeakers with the legendary Italian automakers signature colors and design accents.

The Ferrari collaboration also comes with some sticker shock for these limited edition pieces.

Here is a rundown of what products are being offered as part of the Bang & Olufsen Ferrari collection.

Beosound 2 Speaker
