Bang & Olufsen invites creative customers all over the world to design new front covers for BeoSound 8 – the best-selling audio product in Bang & Olufsen history.
BeoSound 8 is known for its excellent sound quality and visually appealing design. It appeals to a wide variety of customers and is already to be found in thousands of homes around the world appreciating the elegant design, the true-to-life sound reproduction and the placement flexibility. To celebrate this success, Bang & Olufsen invites customers round the world to create a unique design expression for BeoSound 8, and if it makes it through the final it will be offered in a limited edition worldwide.
The competition runs through Bang & Olufsen’s Facebook site – bang-olufsen.com/facebook, where people are invited to upload a photo or design suggestion. Visitors to the design contest page on Facebook will vote on the incoming design suggestions every day. Every two weeks, the three designs with the top voting scores will be selected to enter the Hall of Fame and receive a Form 2 headset. Simultaneously, we will also draw a lucky winner among the voters, who will receive a Form 2 headset. After eight weeks a jury at Bang & Olufsen will select one Grand Prize winner among the 12 designs in the Hall of Fame.
The winning design will be manufactured by Bang & Olufsen and sold worldwide as a Limited Edition. The Grand Prize winner will also receive his very own edition of BeoSound 8.
Bang & Olufsen’s powerful and distinctive looking speaker dock sold more than 50,000 units in the first year on the market, which makes BeoSound 8 the best-selling audio product in Bang & Olufsen history. It has seen an incredible amount of positive reviews in international audio magazines thanks to its striking design and sound performance.
In the prestigious German magazine Audio, for example, the Editor concludes that “BeoSound 8 is indeed luxury in the best sense: You don’t have to have it, yet you want it”.
BeoSound 8 also receives top grades from John Archer from the internet magazine Trusted Reviews who compares the product to a work of art and is particularly excited about the way Bang & Olufsen succeeds in making the product look amazing with both iPhone/iPod and the much wider iPad docked on it.
