Polk Hinge Wireless
PRODUCT | USER INTERFACE
An update to the original Polk Heritage collection launched in 2013, the Hinge Wireless was the first wireless headphone that Polk had created. Our task was to adapt the original Polk Hinge on-ear headphones for easy-to-use wireless functionality without turning a classic apparel accessory into a visually complex eyesore that would be misaligned with the wardrobe of our target user base. We leveraged a rotary jog dial and color-coded user interface to achieve simple and easy-to-use control without removing any functionality. We also updated the material and color palette to capture a spectrum of trends emerging in both fashion and consumer products.
