The goal of the High-End 4D Surround Sound System by
Burmester and Mercedes-Benz was to personalize the sound in
the automobile to the maximum and to make it a true
experience. That’s why we set out to look beyond the sense of
hearing and integrate new levels into the world of experience of
those who hear. This innovation project has now been realized in
the Mercedes-Benz S-Class released in 2020.

Experience sound throughout the body

Since the beginning of our partnership with the automotive sector, our goal has been to create sound solutions that become an essential part of the luxury experience. The Burmester High-End 4D Surround Sound System for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is another jointly achieved milestone on this journey. Functionally, the High-End 4D Surround Sound System enhances the previous system by incorporating structure-borne sound transducers, so-called exciters, into the seat. This specially developed solution makes it possible to perceive the rhythms of the music not only through the ears, but through the entire body, which represents a completely new sound experience in the automobile.

The music experience, which is now also transmitted to the body in a tangible way, is additionally enhanced by the personalization function. Freely adjustable parameters can be used to create a sound profile adapted to the user’s own preferences. Subsequently, 31 high-performance loudspeakers and eight exciters with 1,750 watts of sine wave power provide the all-encompassing sound experience.

Surround speakers integrated into the front seats optimize the surround sound for the driver and front passenger. Clear voice reproduction during phone calls also benefits from these speakers positioned closer to the ear. Visually, emphasis has been placed on creating a fully integrated experience, where the design of the system blends seamlessly with the vehicle’s interior and its UX.


The perfect sound stands for hard work and a continuous quest for improvement. That’s why we are especially honored when the international community of music enthusiasts honors our products.
