JDS Labs makes headphone amplifiers and digital-to-analog converters that perform
true to sound. Their success comes from an obsession with brilliant audio engineering.
In their quest for audibly perfect sound, we designed their new all-in-one flagship system
that embody their "true performance design" philosophy.
Client: JDS Labs
Creative Field(s): Industrial design
It's all about the interactions between users and product. The plenitude of
the best sound is a pure emotion. So we went for that honest feeling and translate it
into the design. We expressed the magic in between, the connection, the bound.
The result is a bold and intuitive approach.
The Element is a no compremise amplifier and a digital-to-analog converter.
We designed it to enjoy our headphones without compromise.
Its amplifier renders shocking power, driven by an ultra clean DAC.
Unlike the competitors, the volume knob is big, highlighted, functional and
comfortable for a better control. We removed the unnecessary, like
an on/off button which is now integrated into the knob and focus on
the essentials in a sleek and ultra clean aluminium enclosure.
