The Phitek Nebula are economy airline headphones designed for Phitek Systems through a sponsored studio during my semester abroad at AUT University in Auckland, New Zealand.
After research into what stakeholders surrounding the aerospace industry we're after I designed a headphone that was both extremely low weight and low cost for both the airlines and Phiteks benefit.
The final solution arrives as a sheet of perforated polypropylene that users can fold into an over the ear headphone. For the airline’s benefit when delivered they take up only one-third the space of existing economy headphones. Due to the minimal design, the final solution costs just 10 cents per unit to manufacture.
