Customers want bold, crisp and accurate audio. They expect their devices to have fantastic sound reproduction whether using headphones or built in speakers. Customers also want to enhance sound to their liking.
HP and Bang & Olufsen will custom tune each notebook for precise sound. The new range of notebooks has a dedicated audio island that isolates the sensitive audio circuits from other signals on the motherboard. The headphone jack limits the amount of metal parts to reduce ground noise to help further perfect the audio experience on the devices.
Because customers want the ability to customize their audio for movies, music and voice, HP devices include an audio control panel. This allows customers to customize and enhance their audio experience based on preset configurations tuned by HP and Bang & Olufsen. Customers can choose from optimized presets or manually tune the sound to their liking.
