Design Your Own Headphones

Design Your Own Headphones


In the world's first crowdsourcing design competition for headphones, beyerdynamic is letting consumers get involved and is giving the web-community the vote. Since September 6, anyone can design an individual version of the CUSTOM ONE PRO model and officially enter it in the my-headphone.com competition. Users can also give their design a name and explain, how they came up with the design.

Thomas Halbgewachs, Consumer Business Unit Manager at beyerdynamic, told us, "Thanks to our intuitive configurator, anyone can create a cool design within 5 minutes."

After 3 weeks, almost 3.000 designs have already been uploaded by users around the world, "Cat Killer," "Beyer Monkey," "Broken Heart" and "The Seaman" are just four examples. But beyerdynamic doesn't judge the proposals. It is solely up to the web-community to decide which design will make its way from the virtual world to the ears of music fans. At the end of 2013, beyerdynamic will start selling the CUSTOM ONE PRO model with the winning design as a special edition. The designer of the winning headphones will win 1.000 Euros and a pair of his or her headphones.

Pricing and Availability:

Designs can still be uploaded until October 18. Votes will be counted until November 1.
