Burmester meets Mercedes

Striving for the perfect
"feelgood sound"

With the debut in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class in 2013, a new dimension of hearing in the premium sedan segment began to emerge worldwide. With the world‘s first 4D sound system in a production vehicle, Burmester was able to advance into another dimension in terms of sound in the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class in 2020. Today, the Burmester high-end sound is an acoustical benchmark in all Mercedes-Benz models. The cars of Mercedes-Maybach and Mercedes-AMG are also experiencing increased driving pleasure with the Burmester sound on board.

Highlights

The special features of the Burmester sound systems


Ring radiator

A so-called ring radiator is used to reproduce even the finest details in the high-frequency range. A narrow aluminium ring forms the membrane. Due to the ring shape, a uniform radiation is possible up to the highest frequencies. The deep-drawn shape of the membrane achieves a very high internal rigidity, which, in combination with the damping provided by the double suspension, allows almost no resonance. The result is a clear, undistorted sound reproduction that reveals all the nuances of the music.


Using this component also in the center area, in conjunction with a midrange driver, stabilises the sound stage centrally on the dashboard. This achieves identical sound characteristics in the three front channels that are essential for optimum sound quality - for a homogeneous and therefore realistic stage image.


Hybrid amplifier

Another unique selling point in the market is the use of powerful yet efficient hybrid amplifiers. We have utilised our decades of experience in analog amplification in the home audio sector into the automotive field. Analog amplification and filters for the high and mid-range are combined with digital amplification in the low-frequency range - for a warm, natural, detailed but at the same time powerful sound.

4D sound

With the Burmester High-End 4D Surround Sound System, so-called exciters are used for the first time in a production vehicle. These structure-borne sound transducers integrated into the seats transfer the rhythms of the music to the entire body, which represents a completely new and enhanced sound experience in an automobile.

Personal sound profile

A highlight of the latest generation of Burmester sound systems is the personalisation function, which allows the sound image to be adapted to individual preferences. An assistant uses sound examples to determine the parameters for a sound profile to suit your taste.

VIP seat

With the VIP function, the sound is focused on the selected listening positio. It is the optimal tuning for the “VIP” in the vehicle.
