Bound by Sound Magazine

Together with the cooperations with BMW, McLaren and Maserati the car audio systems for Volvo are an important corner stone in the automotive strategy of British audio company Bowers & Wilkins. The two companies celebrate their partnership with ‘Bound by Sound’ – a magazine that features people, design, technology, craftsmanship and all the emotion audio on the move can evoke.

The design of the magazine carefully merges the visual cultures of the two companies to create an instantly recognisable format that carves its own editorial niche in the automotive audio space.

Bowers & Wilkins

Bowers & Wilkins is the UK's leading manufacturer of loudspeakers, sound systems, headphones and car audio with distribution in over 60 countries around the world. Ever since the company was founded by John Bowers in 1966, innovative acoustic engineering has been the hallmark of its products. Bowers & Wilkins' technological advances have resulted in rave reviews and the company's products are sought after by recording professionals and music lovers alike.

Bowers & Wilkins has always enjoyed a close relationship with recording engineers who provided vital feedback on how loudspeakers could be improved. As a result of this relationship, Bowers & Wilkins' famous 801 was launched in 1979 and soon became the reference speaker in nearly all of the world's classical recording studios, including EMI Abbey Road, Decca and Deutsche Grammophon. The phenomenal success of this product pushed Bowers & Wilkins to the fore of all loudspeaker manufacturers.
