This is Zound

Zound Industries is a brand incubator of the highest standard. Four brands currently reside in this incubator, each with a distinct personality intended to serve a specific target audience and address their needs. This is why each brand has its own staff, products and philosophy and is treated separately from the rest of the brands.

  • House brands
  • Licensed brands

Urbanears has built its success upon a few simple ingredients, great design, innovative features and lots and lots of color. These building blocks are what has helped catapult Urbanears into 90 countries (and growing) worldwide, and changed the perception of how people think of headphones.

Triangularity. From the packaging to the logo, and even the small details on the headphones, the triangle has a constant presence throughout the Coloud brand. That attention to detail combined with ergonomic design and a bang for your buck price give Coloud a leg up on the competition. It appeals to a broad audience, especially the younger demographic, who appreciate quality in design without breaking the bank.

50 years of rock ‘n’ roll history has been poured into every detail of the Marshall line of products. From headphones to speakers, the Marshall legacy lives on for those who wish to bring the big stage presence home with them.

Bold and distinctive, Molami takes a revolutionary approach to headphones. First and foremost, it’s the first feminine electronics brand designed by women, for women. The use of exclusive materials and tailored design also firmly place it in fashion’s upper stratosphere. Because of this, you’ll find Molami sold in the finest boutiques and department stores in the world.

From the Mind of a Mad Man

“It happened one morning. It was a morning not unlike any other morning. I was lying there peacefully in my bed, just having woken up from a restful sleep, when out of nowhere a bold question comes rushing into my head, disturbing my thoughts like a bat out of hell.”

Marshall x Gramercy Park Hotel

Legends stand the test of time. For nearly 100 years, Gramercy Park Hotel has stood as a beacon for creative souls and bohemian spirits looking for refuge. Likewise, Marshall has been at the forefront of Rock ’N’ Roll for more than 50 decades, working with some of the same musicians that have called the Gramercy their home. With a history that is intrinsically intertwined, these two legends have come together to collaborate on a special edition speaker that is a testament to Rock ’N’ Roll.

Zound Industries wins Telekomgalan’s Company Of The Year Award

Telekomgalan Pris 2015 smal A?rets bolag Hög

Zound Industries received the SwedishTelekomgalan’s prestige price ‘Company of the year 2015′.

The jury’s motivation: The price goes to Zound Industries, a company that finds their own way in innovative solutions in a stereotype industry. Even though they already keep a strong position in the market, they have kept an aggressive growth in new and existing territories. Just as the Beatles song ” Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes” , we agree that Zound Industries has managed to combine great sound with stylish and attractive products”.

Konrad Bergström in the Evening Standard

UK-based Evening Standard interviewed Zound co-founder Konrad Bergström, at the CES show about the Marshall London: “All our products are called different Tube stations in London, but the smartphone is the largest so we called it London.”
