Business model

This is Zound

Based out of Stockholm, Sweden, Zound Industries designs, develops and markets headphones and speakers. With a genuine passion for new technologies and user centric innovation we aim to create products that define our time. The house of Zound includes a portfolio of distinctive brands, Urbanears, Marshall and adidas, a new partnership with the first products launching in 2019.

  • House brand
  • Licensed brand

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.

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.
