“Sound, simplicity and design”: Bang & Olufsen products combine form and function

Spotlight on companies:

Bang & Olufsen, the world’s oldest audio / video company, continues its 96-year tradition of providing “the best design-driven acoustic products on the market” in the La Jolla showroom, says the store owner.

Located at 7851 Girard Ave., the La Jolla site offers the full range of Bang & Olufsen products, from portable headphones and speakers to home sound systems and televisions.

“We combine sound and aesthetics and there is no other brand that offers what we do,” said store manager Nicole Perez. “The designers and engineers work hand in hand on each project because it’s not just about finding a design that looks great, but about making the sound sound amazing, because it’s really a combination of the two. No one offers sound, simplicity and design like us.

Bang & Olufsen is so aesthetic that there is an exhibition centered on Bang & Olufsen at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and so acoustically advanced that it is the home speaker system for residents of La Jolla and musicians Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz.

“I come from the music industry; I worked for Universal Music and Gibson Guitars, ”said store owner David Junk. “I’ve been around musicians and directors all my life, and the most important thing about Bang & Olufsen is allowing people to listen to music the way the artist intended. And our televisions and the movie mode they offer are designed with directors in mind, that’s how the filmmaker wanted you to see it. “

Bang & Olufsen pioneered many simplified methods of transmitting sound, such as preset radio stations in a car and the steering wheel function on the first generations of iPods, and were the first to offer a high-performance system. – speakers for the whole house.

“We always try to stay one step ahead and always think about how this product will fit into your life,” said Perez. “We can do anything. You can come with a set of plans and we can design your whole house if that’s what you are looking for. The materials are all sourced and made in Denmark, which Perez says allows for Scandinavian design and quality.

Perez joined Bang & Olufsen in the Bay Area in 2011, and moved to San Diego in October 2020 and now lives in UTC. She is a member of the board of directors of the La Jolla Village Merchants Association and will be sworn in at a future meeting.

“People tell me they’ve never heard the sound as it comes out of a B&O speaker,” she said. “They tell me that they’ve never heard a person breathe after singing lyrics, or that they’ve never heard a guitar so clearly as they can hear their fingers scratching. We all love music, music takes us through all the feelings we have in this world. It’s there for us, and what’s better than crystal-clear sound?

Bang & Olufsen is located at 7851 Girard Ave. and is open from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Tuesday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Saturday, 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sunday and Monday by appointment. Learn more: (858) 750-2202 or bang-olufsen.com.
