Bentley is known for its discerning taste, and now the British automotive company has put its mind to luxury audio goods. Taping Naim for a Mu-So wireless home speaker and Focal for a pair of Radiance headphones, the marque has delivered two pieces of luxurious sound equipment that are fit for any Bentley owner.
The collaborative works are for fans of Bentley, music, or design, as both the home speaker and the pair of headphones are beautifully crafted from materials only Bentley would deem necessary. Design cues are taken from the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar and the EXP 100 GT, while other elements such as the car’s cabins have also served as inspiration.
Naim and Bentley have made their Mu-So from Ayous, a sustainable African hardwood that has been stained and lacquered to give it a dark finish. This is complemented by the anodized copper heat sink, a smoked acrylic plinth, a copper-threaded speaker grille, and a tactile volume dial that’s finished with a signature Bentley lattice design surrounding that illuminates to the touch.
Joining this is the Focal Radiance headphone, which is equally as luxurious. It uses soft, breathable Pittards gloving leather for the earcups that also feature the reoccurring lattice design, as well as the highest quality leather hides for the padded headband. Bentley’s winged logo graces the side of the earphones just above the cups, appearing once more in copper.
Take a look at Bentley’s collaborative work with Naim and Focal above. The Naim Mu-So retails for $2199 USD, while the Focal Radiance headphones will cost you $1300 USD. Both can be bought from Bentley’s website now.
