Social Audio

Consumers search for collective audio experiences

Implications - The ubiquity of personal devices has made listening to music an often isolated experience. While this system might be perfect for daily commutes, consumers continue to crave a way to share their musical tastes and preferences. Products designed to encourage this approach to music reflect a consumer desire for communal experiences and a way to share content.
