Reed Heath Ltd (RHA), based in Glasgow, Scotland, has received the prestigious ‘Observeur du Design’ award 2017 for its flagship T20i Metal Injection Moulded headphones. The award was presented in the product design category, recognising quality in technological and design innovation, with additional criteria including overall value and the corporate responsibility of the product’s manufacture.

One of over a hundred entries for the 2017 award, the MIM stainless steel T20i headphones will be exhibited with other winners in prominent galleries and museums across France throughout the second half of 2016. The tour will culminate in Paris in December where the product will compete against other L’Observeur winners for the ‘Étoiles du Design’ award.

RHA received a further award for its T20i MIM headphone at the Visual Grand Prix in Japan at the end of May 2016. The T20i is certified to High Resolution Audio standard by the Japan Audio Society and features RHA’s revolutionary DualCoilTM driver technology as well as the two-piece MIM casing enabling it to outperform traditional drivers in the replication of true-to-life sound.
