Creative Director

at Normal in NY   —   Jun 24, 2014   |  
Overview
Henry Ford would have shot his brains out if he’d ever attempted to standardize these weird little flaps of flesh.

The cartilaginous collectors of sound and repositories of wax are the rocky shoals upon which many a captain of industry have landed.

And with good reason. Every ear is different. But has been treated the same.

It’s why most of what you see in the marketplace is essentially an admission of failure from manufacturers who have tried and failed to crack the earhole.

To us, putting a mediocre one-size-fits-all product into the intimate and one-of-a-kind spaces on either side of our our heads is no longer acceptable.

There’s probably someone else in the world who looks like you, has the same name and the same weird fetish for hairy Scottish men, but we guarantee if we stuck a finger in their ear, it would be completely unique.

So we did what any insensible person would do, we figured out something that won’t work for anyone else but you...

Normal is an entirely new kind of headphones- built by leveraging the latest advancements in internet, mobile technology & manufacturing.

We’ll tell you more in person.
