ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics (LG) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with premium audio firm B&O PLAY to offer smartphone users an enhanced high-quality audio experience. Firmly grounded in 90 years of audio and design excellence, craftsmanship and product innovation from Bang & Olufsen, B&O PLAY interprets the same values for new types of contemporary products aimed at quality and design-conscious customers, in line with LG's position as a leader in smartphone audio.
The two companies have been working closely together on the new LG G5 to ensure the best, most immersive sound experience for LG G5 users. LG will be the first company to offer powerful Hi-Fi audio features co-designed by B&O PLAY.
"We are very excited to work with LG. With LG's dedication to premium smartphones, the collaboration gives us the opportunity to bring B&O PLAY's acoustic excellence to an even broader customer base," said Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, President of B&O PLAY. "B&O PLAY appeals to music lovers who want the best available products on the market. They are uncompromisingly innovative, without boundaries and constantly on the go, and they expect the same from the headphones as well as the mobile devices they choose, so this is a perfect match."
Building on its many advances in smartphone audio, LG plans to expand its collaboration with B&O PLAY to enhance the competitiveness of its smartphone audio experience further.
"By collaborating with B&O PLAY, we believe we can meet and surpass the heightened expectations of consumers seeking the next generation of enhanced audio experiences on their smartphones," said Juno Cho, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "Our collaboration with B&O PLAY has proven mutually beneficial, and LG will continue to work with other leading companies in a variety of different industries in order to set new standards for innovation in the premium smartphone market."
