NEW CLOSED BACK MODEL IS COMING OUT EARLY 2021.
The audio community all over the world accepted the S4R remarkably. But we always listen, and when we have enough feedback we always try to deliver better.
And now it's time to update the S4R model.
THE NEW MODEL BUCKET LIST:
KILLING THE OLD S4R MODELYou might be wondering why we've discontinued two of the core models that actually made OLLO a reality?! Well, we listen to your feedback and whenever we can, we implement changes, make upgrades and launch them in new versions of our S series headphones.
Every time, we have a better target to go after, we do it. Yes, it takes time, it takes resources and the final result is not always guaranteed. But we keep pushing.
We asked our customers how satisfied they are with the S4R model and sorted feedback into two buckets. The good stuff and the bad stuff. The more research we did, more obvious it became what are the challenges we will need to face.
RESEARCH and DEVELOPMENT
We let you behind the scene with our research and development team and take you through the process from a prototype to a finalized product.
TESTING WITH ARTISTS
Every time we release something new, we invite 25 of our closest endorsers to get a very early preview and help us finalize the product.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED IN THE R&D?
We love to base our research on feedback from users as opposed to our own ideas. So you can leave your feedback and ideas on our social media channels, through help desk or simply shoot us an email to email@example.com
If you are our endorser you’ll get a chance to be a beta tester. We call that group the Special 25. Every time we release something new, we invite 25 of our closest endorsers to get a very early preview and help us finalize the product
STORY BEHIND THE S4R
We came up with the S4R model idea after one of the very first ambassadors we ever got Chris Brown, a London based engineer that worked with Muse, Radiohead and other big names, asked us if we can turn the open back headphones into a closed version for him.
And we did that. We wanted both models to look similar, so the main challenge was to tweak the acoustics, so they sound good with the closed back plates. After we were pleased with the results, we send them out to Chris, as well as to some other engineers. When we gathered the feedback that was essentially very good, we knew we could start selling them with confidence.
