Sennheiser approached us to help them re-design the highly popular line of classic in-ear headphones, the CX series. Designing from ground up, we took the opportunity to create a new look that would allow consumers and loyal users to recognize and feel excited on the performance, heritage and appearance of these in-ear headphones.
With the mind-set to create a line of iconic and recognizable earphones that speaks volumes of the brand, we developed an oblong stage where the Sennheiser brand logo stands proudly. The transducer-resonator housing was blended smoothly into the ear adaptors from the oblong stage to create a modern flow of sound. Detailed scrutiny of the design will reveal a multitude of precise construct and rich touches to accentuate the individual audio elements.
Besides providing an accurate acoustic experience, we designed a well crafted n inline three button remote with integrated mic for either Apple iOS or Samsung Galaxy smart devices. Cable management is a big part of the experience. We designed a portable hard case organizer that allows users to coil the cables neatly and quickly while storing the required ear adaptor sizes in it. The organizer also proudly shows-off the designs as a pair of jewelled technology.
The CX5.00 in-ear headphone is the premium classic ear phone for Sennheiser. The overall shape is ergonomically formed for outstanding comfort within the left and right ear canals. The extended oblong façade is stamped in metal for the exquisite touch. The CX3.00 in-earphones a replacement of the legendary CX300/II. Constructed in the same ergonomics principle as CX5.00, the CX3.00 mid-housing allows expression of different colours and finishes.
