Industrial Design for Sennheiser from our Singapore studio
MX-W1 Wireless Audiophile Earphone System
OBJECTIVE: From a proof-of-concept prototype, create a design targeted to the lifestyles of predominantly male audiophiles and enthusiasts. The system consists of earphones and a docking storage with a built-in power bank to enable remote charging.
OUTCOME: We first worked with Sennheiser's audio engineers to establish basic ergonomic constraints and to explore component configurations. Multiple concept directions were created to define the product form factor. Mock-up variations were fabricated to test fitting on the ears of diverse users before freezing design parameters for the final design development. The design received a Red Dot Award from Germany.
