  • Re: Bang and Olufsen Outsourced

    [quote user="Jonathan"] [quote user="Dkatz"] I lived in London for 5 ½ years, which is probably far more multicultural than any city in Australia. I met and befriended people from almost every country in the world, and as mentioned I had flatmates from China, Japan, Cameroon, France, England, Italy, many countries in that

    [quote user="folkdeejay"] [quote user="Jonathan"] I think Dkatz is just a snob, pure and simple... [/quote] Snob or otherwise, it seems he has seen and experienced an awful lot of designer items, brands and retailers ( not to mention the numerous factory visits round Europe !!) in the his first eight years of adulthood. I say first

    Jonathan – There's no need to insult me or anyone else on the forum. You may think of me as you wish, but I made quite valid points and if you had actually read and responded to them, then you could have inputed something more than just calling me a snob. I lived in London for 5 ½ years, which is probably far more multicultural than

    I visited over a dozen factories in Europe and Japan and talked to Product Managers, Directors, CEO's, etc... The working conditions were excellent, they were extremely transparent, I could go and talk to the workers if I wanted to. They all worked decent hours and got excellent pay. When I was at the Leica factory, the product manager talked abut

    [quote user="w5bno123"]I am not sure how anyway can feel ripped off by purchasing one of the worlds best speaker docks? It sounds great and looks amazing. The fact that BeoSound 8 is B&Os most successful item ever speaks volumes. 70% of owners are actually NEW to the brand. I have never had anyone ask where the product is made and if we

    Moxxey – If it wasn't necessarily about surviving and it was more about appealing to younger audiences then they have completely changed their image to become some “hip” brand. Unfortunately, I don't think this is the right way to go about it. They are ruining their brand image. Think about what Bemtleyman said: If RR outsourced

    Puncher – Perhaps in your case this item was $20 but my point is that it doesn't cost B&O that much more to produce an iPod dock in China than it does many other manufacturers that charge ¼ of as much so B&O are actually making more of a profit per item than them based on their name and prestige that people buy for although

    Jonathan – We all live in the same world hence why we should all have respect for each other and not profit off other peoples poverty with near slave labour. We as consumers all have a choice. Moxxey – I think we in the west learned our lessons, hence why Labour unions were formed. In the UK people were getting paid much better wages in

    Puncher – My argument is that they didn't have to outsource in order to survive. 15K plus TVs aren't the only thing they sell, they have many audio components that they are a lot more famous for such as the Beosound and Beolab products many of which are reasonably priced in the 1-5k range. B&Os problem is exactly one of becoming a

    [quote user="burantek"] Outsourcing, from anywhere to anywhere is an immensely considered undertaking... have you now changed your opinion that it is solely "to fill their pockets?" Have you ever been directly involved in a GO/NO GO corporate decision regarding outsourcing? [/quote] There is more than one reason for outsourcing,
