Yes, the Bentley car. We saw what would happen if auto engineers and designers worked with non-automotive brands in the past. For example, in 2013 I tested a Thermaltake gaming mouse with a really cool design with the BMW design team. We also know that OPPO is working with Lamborgini to create a really cool OPPO Find X2 Pro Automobili Lamborghini Edition.
In a recent design collaboration, Bentley is teaming up with two premium audio brands: Naim Audio and Focal. I haven’t had any experience with Naim Audio products, but the Focal Chora 806 audiophile bookshelf speakers still sit next to our TV in the living room and are still our favorite (be sure to read my review).
The collaboration between these three brands has resulted in two premium audio products: Naim Mu-so for the Bentley Special Edition wireless speaker system and Focal for Bentley Radiance headphones. The color accents refer directly to the interior and exterior design aspects of the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar, while a recurring grid pattern on both products is inspired by Bentley’s legendary diamond seat quilt.
Naim Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition
The Special Edition is based on Naim Mu-so 2nd Generation and is a wireless speaker system that offers authentic audio know-how combined with the latest music streaming technology, exquisite build quality, excellent usability and even the ability to listen to TV sound transform.
It is the first Naim Mu-so to feature a wood finish made from African hardwood called Ayous. There’s also a signature Bentley grille design that surrounds the tactile volume control and glows when touched by the user.
Focus on Bentley Radiance
Designed, engineered and manufactured in France, Radiance headphones are an enclosed design that incorporates a combination of the best of Focal technologies and high quality materials.
The Focal for Bentley Radiance headphones come with a custom-made carrying case that is included in the box and is made from the same woven material depicted on the speaker grille of the Naim Mu-so for the Bentley Special Edition.
You can also find Bentley styling accents on the ear cups, cable connections, and the underside of the lusciously padded headband.
Naim Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition and Focal for Bentley Radiance will be available from October through BusiSoft AV (and its authorized dealers) and Bentley dealers, as well as directly from the Focal, Naim and Bentley webshops. Retail prices are A $ 3,700 for the Naim Mu-so for the Bentley Special Edition and A $ 2,000 for the Focal for the Bentley Radiance. limited stock available.
