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.
