Newsflash: People still love music.
According to Nielsen’s Music 360 2016 study, 93% of the U.S. population listens to music, spending more than 25 hours each week jamming out to their favorite tunes.
So we’re listening to music more than ever, but how we listen is changing. These days, most of us rely on our phones, tablets and laptops to play the songs we love and our speakers and headphones are becoming increasingly wireless. Wireless headphones, already gaining in popularity, quickly became the go-to choice when Apple released the iPhone 7 without a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. If the biggest tech company in the world thinks that the future is wireless, we're paying attention.
Given music's popularity and universal appeal, it makes good business sense to put brands on the speakers and headphones we use to enjoy our tunes.
