Eco friendly Turntable? This was very clever Matt Lim! Fastcode turns us onto this student project… While most of your readers are familiar with the Sennheiser name, the German audio company’s name is supposedly known by less than 10% of “regular” headphone consumers. Not sure on that.
Well, industrial design student, Matthew Lim, looks to raise the company profile with his student project, Ecovinyl, which produces a turntable and headphones from sustainable materials. Lim claims that with current production costs, Ecovinyl could retail for $350; not a bad price for the combo.
Trouble is, Sennheiser has not said yea or nay on producing the project. We’ll see what comes of it.
