Hi All,

Bang & Olufsen have literally just launched their 'new-look' website and are interested to hear our views, feedback and criticisms.  I've just had an email from the Sales and Marketing Department who would appreciate what we have to say - good or bad...

Here's the LINK.  It's going live as I type this - so it may take a little while longer for all the servers to update, so please be patient if you don't see the new site immediately..

Fire away!

Lee

The main problem with the site is that it is presumably not finished.  Quality control should be the main focus for Bang & Olufsen and it didn't happen here.  Usually when a company is launching new products and canceling other products, they have a complete website.  The web is part of the marketing campaign.  Consider there are customers new to the brand trying to figure out the various products and trying to decide what goes together.  There is not a cohesive message.  The dealer locator is very poor.

I dislike being a beta tester for a website and any software from Bang & Olufsen.  I am not looking to buy anything now but maybe in a year.  I get the feeling B&O may not exist like it is in a year.

I agree with Evan.  The automotive products are well done and that's probably is the future.  I am sure there will be no Beoplay for BMW and others.

From the website i'm confused whether the BeoSound 8 will be in current production. It seems really bad having the BS8 on it sporting Bang & Olufsen and then A8 Airplay sporting B&O.  My best friend who is new to B&O asked me about this and was confused with two names for a product that looked very similar!  I know what he means, bit unprofessional really!

My dealer is confused, too. He was told they would both continue (at the two very difference price points), then told only the A8 would continue, now he says that both will continue until the existing Beosound 8 runs out of stock, or tat least for the foreseeable future.

Does seem to be a very confusing mixed message.

Yes totally agree Moxxey. Same looking design icon with 2 different brands - very indifferent.

Ive noticed that audio side to my iPhone 4S is improved yet again, compared to last years iPod Nano & the iPod & iPhone before that! Clear, more punchy & louder!

Lovely images on the new site, and very aspirational feel to the whole site - like it!

I like the fresh look but I have found that as well as the current phones missing there is no BeoPort, Beoplayer or reference the apps available from the Apple store

 

Oh and a very large image of an early version of the Beo4 (SAT V-Tape A-Tape) in the connectivity section of Picture

Just saw this on the B&O Facebook page. It was in response to a comment that the phones were no longer featured on the new webpage.

Do not despair - you can still see and buy the famous BeoCom phones in our stores - no change in this. Upon designing the new website and preparing the launch, we decided to focus on the core products for a start. As the site develops we will add more relevant information and we are also working on a mobile / pad version. Thank you for your comments.

I quite enjoyed reading about people homes - last one I thoroughly enjoyed was the architect who live in a converted barn in Italy. We need more of this.......

I can't find the current PUC list for my beovision. Nor can I find the changes list for the current DVB software update. It's also so sloooow to use it drives you away back to beoworld.

Out of the website titled "How to become a hacker"

But just having a home page isn't anywhere near good enough to make you a hacker. The Web is full of home pages. Most of them are pointless, zero-content sludge — very snazzy-looking sludge, mind you, but sludge all the same.

To be worthwhile, your page must have content — it must be interesting and/or useful to other hackers.

I recommend to add some content about every B&O product.
