just gotta do itI have to jump in on this thread.
We just started researching the market because we plan to develop a line of SLAPPA headphones. One of the biggest success stories in the headphone market is SkullCandy. I've never listened to any of their product, and will admit that their designs are not my style.....BUT they are HUGELY successful with regards to sales and generating buzz in new markets. They have done a great job at marketing the product.
So, as we look at entering this market, SkullCandy is a model that we look at as a successful selling model. Do we want to water down the SLAPPA brand name by making low-quality headphones? Definitely not.
We have a lot of cool ideas but wanted to reach out to you guys, because you guys are the experts and we always love to work with the users (and not think we know it all).
so if you have ideas on what the market is missing and what we should focus on, send me a PM. As we develop our first models we will be sending out units for free for users to test and provide feedback on, so if you get involved now you can help push us down a path of your liking.
I'm interested to hear what you guys think!!
