How we help your car really move you.

PART 1: PRODUCING LIVE SOUND

Hippo Campus strives to give their studio records a full, live sound. That's what we strive for, too.

"ROAD SETS" WITH
HIPPO CAMPUS

Just as Hippo Campus obsesses over every detail of their music, we obsess over every detail of how you hear it. See how it all comes together for sound as alive as their shows. Join us as we cruise through L.A. on our way to an exclusive rooftop recording of their melodic track "Tuesday," performed live under the neon lights atop the Rosslyn Hotel.

PART 2: SURROUNDED BY SOUND

You don't have to fill a cabin with speakers to fill it with sound.

PART 3: SOUND WITH EMOTION

The song "Halocline" is meant to feel visceral and raw. None of that should be lost when you listen to it.

PART 4: THE ESSENCE OF BETTER SOUND

They put their hearts into their music. We put ours into the research that gets you closer to it.

Bose Active Sound Management Technology

  • Re-engineering Powertrain Sound

    We have expanded our audio expertise to consider the total sound environment in a vehicle with our Active Sound Management technology. It can add life to the sound of the engine, or quiet it down. All so you have a better driving experience.

  • Cancelling undesirable noise

    Making your engine sound great is no simple task. Some engine sounds can be unpleasant or droning. Bose Engine Harmonic Cancellation continuously measures and analyzes engine noise and vehicle data. We then use the vehicle’s audio system to produce an acoustically opposite signal to reduce those undesirable sounds. Watch video »

Bose Engine Harmonic Enhancement analyzes your powertrain sound and generates a complementary signal to enhance or modify it to achieve the auto manufacturer’s desired sound.
