Bang & Olufsen has been a pioneer in melding home entertainment with aesthetics and lifestyles elements for the over 80 years. Founded in 1925 by Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen, B&O had a number of electronic firsts in Europe. Research and development lead in 1999 a joint venture called ICEPower, one of the leading providers of Class D amplifiers for subwoofers, car audio, mobile phones, and more. Companies like Samsung, Alpine, Pioneer, MartinLogan, and Rotel all use ICEPower chips.

In recent years Bang & Olufsen has expanded out of the home into the car audio space, with many Audi, Aston Martin, and AMG Mercedes models featuring custom B&O audio systems. Unique in the car audio space are tweeters that rise out of the dash to offer better and more direct sound.

Other notable products include the Bang & Olufsen Beolit 39, one of the first mass produced radios in Europe, featuring a distinctive Bakelite cabinet. Also notable is the Beosystem 2500, featured on the TV show Friends, the BeoGram CD X, featured in just about every 1980s movie, and the BeoLab 5 powered loudspeakers.
