We see this as a significant benefit: we’re all living in noisier environments, whether on a plane, train or sitting in a crowded coffee shop. We’re also developing new solutions for other consumer trends, among them the growth of a group we call ‘fit fanatic millennials’. MusicChain technology even allows two people to listen to the same music source – which is great when you are training together. Another development relates to increasing headphone use by kids. With the shift away from the traditional TV as the key entertainment source, solution for this younger demographic. What’s in stall for traditional music listeners? Music lovers demand a high quality listening experience.
