Making electronics fashionable and fashion electronic
Get a quick introduction to Zound Industries
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.
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.
What we do, we mostly do ourselves. Zound Industries’ office contains brilliant people capable of building brands that reach as high as the tallest skyscrapers. We create our own strategy, products, packaging, marketing and engineering. From A to Ö, we do it all.
Eight ambitious individuals founded Zound Industries, with different backgrounds ranging from design, product development, finance, marketing, sales and business. Most of the eight founders are still active in the company today, many of whom have even completed high school.
Zound Industries was founded at the end of 2008, and our first products hit the market in December 2009. Since then we have sold over 10 million products, established four brands to connect with different audiences, set up distribution in more than 100 markets, and are widely available at over 20,000 locations globally, including Apple, Best Buy, HMV, Target, Urban Outfitters, Colette, FNAC, Media Markt, Telia, Deutsche Telecom, Orange and Tesco.
“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.”
Zound Industries already has offices in New York and Shenzhen besides the headquarter in Stockholm. The latest addition is the Paris office which will strengthen the support to their partners in the southern Europe region. The opening of the Paris office marks another step in the Zound Industries growth plan.

Marshall London rewarded with GIGA AWARD for ‘Best Designed Product’ at IFA 2015
Bam! Marshall London has only been out to the public a couple of months but has already won prices for its design. This time as ‘Best designed product” at IFA 2015 by German magazine Giga.de.
“Marshall London rewarded for Best designed product at IFA “Marshall London smartphone breaks out of the famous glass-plastic-metal mold. The somewhat extravagant design might not speak to everyone, but it provides a welcome change from the smartphone monotony these days. A special feature with a nostalgic effect: The mechanical volume wheel and the two headphone output for a shared musical moment.”
Not only is the Marshall London probably the loudest phone on the market, it has also been honored with the “Best of IFA 2015″ – award on the first day of the fair. IFA is in full action in Berlin and is listed as the worlds biggest fair with thousands of exhibitors, which means that the award was received in some tough competition.
