Red Dot
The M500 on-ear headphones show an unmistakable design with visual reference to a musical note, indicating the product’s high sound quality. The technically sophisticated hardware is housed securely in an anodised aluminium frame. The wiring system between the two drivers is internally managed, which successfully retains the clear, elegant design language of the headphones while considerably enhancing wearing comfort at the same time. Furthermore the connection cable is interchangeable.

Statement by the jury

»The design of the headphones is well-conceived and coherent. Each detail is geared to comfort and high performance.«
