Luxury auto brand Mercedes-Benz is to offer Dolby Atmos Music in a range of its top models, starting with the Maybach, from the summer of 2022. It’ll then roll out to other vehicles equipped with the new MBUX system, introduced with the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

The Atmos experience will be built into the optional Burmester high-end 4D and 3D sound system and shortly afterwards in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

The Maybach becomes one of the first cars in the world and the first Mercedes-Benz, to offer Dolby’s 3D sound experience.

The Burmester 4D sound system, installed in the Maybach and the S-Class, is well equipped to handle Dolby Atmos. It includes 31 speakers, including six 3D speakers that emit their sound from above, 4 near-ear speakers in the front seats, an 18.5-liter subwoofer; eight sound transducers (that’s two per seat), two amplifiers - and in total 1750 watts of amplification.

“Our customers rightly expect the highest level of music enjoyment in a Mercedes-Benz vehicle. Therefore, Mercedes-Benz is one of the first luxury car brands in the world to rely on the ground-breaking Dolby Atmos technology”, says Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG responsible for Sales.

”With Dolby Atmos and the Burmester sound system, we offer our customers an exciting music experience in the vehicle that is almost like a live concert. I am sure the customers will be delighted.”

John Couling, Senior Vice President Commercial Partnerships, Dolby Laboratories said: “At Dolby we are passionate about extending the Dolby Atmos Music experience, so that consumers can enjoy it anywhere and Mercedes-Benz shares our vision. We are excited to be collaborating with them to accelerate the adoption of this immersive auditory experience in cars. The integration of Dolby Atmos into the S-Class and the Mercedes-Maybach will offer an additional superior feature to customers whether they are in the driving seat or a passenger.”
