Design Sennheiser’s new headphone experience

No Comments

Can you transform young professionals’ sound experience?

Brands are rarely able to ride the success of a single product forever. Instead, most of the world’s top brands are notorious for producing one game-changing idea to market after another.

As new ideas are the foundation of sustained growth, Sennheiser, a world leader in sound, is ready  to reinvent itself with a ground-breaking new headphones set. As music is the gateway to relaxation and happiness for so many, Sennheiser sees tremendous potential in catering to the community of young professionals fusing their private and professional lives while in transit. Whether commuting to work on the subway or waiting for a flight after a consulting project abroad, these next-geners want access to quality-sound, chill-out time no matter where they are.


But knowing that these 20- and 30-somethings are eager to listen to their favorite tunes on-the-go is only half the equation. Sennheiser recognizes that it must think beyond everything it loves about its classic headphones. In order to offer a product that truly transforms the travel listening experience, they are asking for your help.

What is jovoto and how does it work?

jovoto is the creative workspace for designers worldwide. It is an open innovation platform where creatives, designers and innovators work together to solve design challenges for top global brands like Mercedes Benz, Coca-Cola, WIRED and Victorinox.

It’s a unique process with people from all creative disciplines working together to solve design and innovation challenges. During a jovoto Crowdstorm, creatives submit ideas, give each other feedback, and collaborate to make great ideas even better. Once a member of our community, you could be eligible for Invite projects with fixed daily payments of up to €450 per day.
