For this new chapter in the partnership with the iconic car manufacturer, Focal and Naim are moving up a gear. Working closely with Bentley Motors, the brands have developed special products for their iconic models to deliver a sensational listening experience both on the road and at home. Combining outstanding design, exceptional materials and cutting-edge audio technologies, these products embody the excellence and unique expertise of these three luxury manufacturers.

Focal and Naim have designed two brand-new products with Bentley: the Focal for Bentley Radiance Headphones and the Naim Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition speaker.

A Bentley collection for an extraordinary musical experience, that goes beyond the car

Building on the success of the partnership between Bentley and Naim established in 2008 for the design and integration of custom onboard audio systems, Focal joined the adventure in 2011. This new collaboration between the design and engineering teams of the three companies goes a step further to offer music lovers sensational listening experiences both on the road and at home.

It’s been a privilege to work with Bentley on our in-car partnership for more than a decade and an exciting journey taking their extraordinary design DNA beyond all the vehicles. Together, we have blended sustainable materials with innovative technology to develop these unique audio products.

Focal & Naim Design Director

Sustainable materials and cutting-edge technologies, the excellence of French and British expertise

The refined design of these special editions is complemented by cutting-edge technologies from Focal and Naim for a high-quality listening experience. The lows are powerful and the mids very smooth. Sonic harmony is very precise: whether you’re listening to the Mu-so speaker or using the Radiance hi-fi headphones, both the sound and Bentley’s esthetic style set a high standard.

The speaker’s copper effect was inspired by the EXP 100 GT, which represents Bentley’s move towards more sustainable materials. It can also be seen in the weave of the front and rear grilles.

Extreme attention to detail and care in everything, without compromise


Each Focal and Naim product has its own identity while still embodying the spirit of Bentley. The Copper finishes on the speaker and headphones are a reference to the iconic Bentley Mulliner Bacalar model, itself inspired by the remarkable EXP 100 GT electric concept car. The recurring pattern on both products is inspired by the iconic “Diamond” upholstery of Bentley seats.

Focal for Bentley Radiance

The Radiance closed-back hi-fi headphones are created, developed and manufactured in France by Focal and combine acoustic technologies and pure design. These headphones isolate external noise and provide exceptional performances. Full-grain Pittards® leather, which has a reputation stretching back to 1826, covers the earpads and the inside of the headband for even greater elegance, softness and comfort.

Released in fall 2020, the Focal for Bentley Radiance hi-fi headphones are sold for €1,299.

Naim Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition

The Mu-so 2nd Generation wireless speaker is a special edition model that has won multiple awards across the world. It incorporates high-definition music streaming services. Its wood finish uses Ayous, a sustainable African wood, for ultimate elegance.

Released in fall 2020, the Naim Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition speaker is sold for €1,999.
