In 1925, working out of a Danish farmhouse, Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen reinvented the radio, developing The Eliminator, the first mass-produced radio that could be plugged into the wall, without the need for a battery. A century later, that entrepreneurial spirit of innovation lives on in everything we do. It’s what drives us: to change how we all hear, see and feel the world.
From the beginning we have not just predicted, but also shaped home design trends. Our century of firsts includes reinventing the turntable and introducing touch-sensitive controls that defined the look of an era. We pioneered the creation of universal remote controls, as well as connected home speaker setups. Our latest speaker technology leads the electronics industry in longevity and upgradeability. And the list goes on.
