NewSchool design students worked with SoundUnited, a group that develops top quality audio equipment, to develop new products for their line. SoundUnited challenged our students to envision products that would serve “the future of sound.” The purpose was not only to design a beautiful piece of audio equipment but also potentially challenge how we currently use sound equipment.

After several months of learning about the SoundUnited brand from the companies designers and learning about the audio equipment, students presented several new products to the SoundUnited designers. Among the many products presented was a design called The Clip. Created by design student, Josep-Maria Serra, The Clip is a small wearable device that can deliver focused, personal sound without the burden of wearing headphones.
