personal sound field all around you, a stylish one
One thing our design team learn from M2 is that some people like the idea of personal sound field, however, they also think the product image of M2 couldn’t fit their style. This inspires the team to start designing a Music Wrap product that is more stylish and static. When designing M2, the length of strap is not critical since it’s bendable, yet in M3, we need to really consider the neck-size in design for the hard housing. We study the ergonomics of neck sizes and share the result with M25 project. That bases the foundation of our M3 design.
The customer gives M3 a very positive feedback about the design and all the material we make, however, the cost of production has made the business postpone and look for more opportunity to proceed into selling it on market.
Ｍ3 is acknowledged by Good Design Award 2015. Special tanks to design lead Luke Wu, Jimmy Chen, director Elton Fang, and all the teams involved. Also thanks to David Wang and Luis Yi's support for video shooting.
The Slim and the Performance
We reference some existing neck-rounding products on the market like LG and Sony. We decide to design two lines for M3, one is bigger with better performance, and the other is slimmer and light-weight. For each line we make two deigns for different potential business purposes.
Four working prototypes are made for our sales team to evaluate the the product design. Finally they and the design team reach to a decision that we will have one of the design go to the next engineering evaluation stage.
M3 is a stylish Bluetooth Speaker that can go anywhere with you. With easy pairing via Bluetooth, you can stream music and feel the stereo sound field. The place of the speaker can be easily adjust to fit different preferences, and M3 also provides a standing mode when you’re not wearing it.
