The Sound System By Burmester

The premium sound system in the EQS 580 is made by Burmester, a German manufacturer of high-end car audio systems. Burmester is known for its advanced technology and superior sound quality, and has been a supplier of premium audio systems to Mercedes-Benz for many years.

The sound system is specifically tuned to provide rich and detailed sound, with a wide frequency range and a high level of clarity. The system is powered by a high-performance amplifier that provides ample power to the speakers, ensuring that the audio is always clear and distortion-free. Features such as digital signal processing, equalization, and active noise cancellation, help to optimize the audio quality and provide a more immersive listening experience.

As soon as the music starts, it’s like being transported to another world. The sound is so rich and detailed, with a wide frequency range and a high level of clarity. Every instrument, every note, every nuance is clearly audible and it’s like being right in the middle of a live performance. The bass is deep and powerful, yet it never overpowers the rest of the music. The mids and highs are crisp and clear, providing a sense of depth and dimensionality to the sound. The active noise cancellation feature helps to eliminate any external noise, and the sound is so pure and immersive that it’s like being in a private concert.

Range & Battery Size

The battery pack of the EQS 580 4MATIC is very large with a capacity of 108.8 kWh, this allows the vehicle to travel long distances without needing to be recharged. The vehicle also supports fast charging, which allows the battery to be charged to 80% in about 30 minutes from a fast charging station under ideal conditions. During my time with the EQS 580 in the michigan winter, it took 54 minutes to get from 10% to 80%. In terms of range under normal driving conditions you can expect around 340 miles.

Driving Dynamics

The vehicle’s electric motor provides instant torque and responsive acceleration, delivering an effortless driving experience and with a 0-60 time of just 4.1 seconds it can certainly throw you back in your seat. The vehicle’s advanced aerodynamics and lightweight construction also improve its overall efficiency and range.

It’s also equipped with 4-wheel steering, which improves the vehicle’s handling and maneuverability. This advanced technology allows the rear wheels to turn in the opposite direction of the front wheels at low speeds, which helps to reduce the vehicle’s turning radius and make it easier to maneuver in tight spaces. At higher speeds, the rear wheels turn in the same direction as the front wheels, which helps to improve stability and handling on the highway.

It drives exactly how you’d want your luxury EV sedan to, it’s quick, quiet, comfortable and refined and manages to be a bit of fun too especially in sport mode. While it’s not as engaging as a C63 AMG, it can certainly deliver a bit of fun when you want.
