Zound scoops two Red Dot Awards for Urbanears and Marshall Headphones
It’s another double win for Zound, with the Urbanears Boo and Boo Tip and Marshall Motif A.N.C. headphones both earning prestigious Red Dots for product design in the audio category. As with all Zound products, they were designed and developed in-house at the global headquarters in Stockholm.
Urbanears Boo and Boo Tip boast a bold sound and clean, minimalist design, and, crucially, have been made with 97% recycled plastic. These ‘Made from Trash’ True Wireless Headphones represent the first steps on Zound’s journey towards being fully circular and carbon neutral by 2030.
“It is gratifying to be recognised by the Red Dot Jury for our efforts with the Urbanears Boo and Boo Tip,” says Calle Uggla, Chief Design Officer, Zound Industries. ‘These headphones represent the start of an exciting period for us, where sustainability sits alongside design and innovation, helping to drive the industry to a more responsible future.”
We’re also thrilled that the Marshall Motif A.N.C. headphones have been recognised by Red Dot for their product design. A hit with customers and reviewers alike, Marshall’s flagship in-ear headphones effortlessly blend the brand’s rock ‘n’ roll heritage with cutting edge wireless technology, huge battery life, headlining sound performance and exceptional active noise cancellation.
“It is always an honour to have our products awarded by the Red Dot Jury,” says Jeremy de Maillard, CEO, Zound Industries. “The two award winners exemplify what we strive for, the perfect combination of great design, acoustic performance and sustainability. Everyone involved should be immensely proud of their achievements.”
