Together with the University of Design in Pforzheim/Germany OBE developed an exclusive earbud concept based on the MIM-technology. Two industrial design students became the task to create different complex earbud housings made from metal. Target for them was to utilise as much as possible the benefits of the design freedom of the MIM-technology by considering at the same time ergonomic aspects of an earphone. Only the relevant inner components of an earbud gave the design limitations. On the other hand the intention was to create also a more visible and valuable product compared to small and rather invisible plastic earbuds.
