Evaluation

This is a good example of minimalistic design, which was the goal of the design. Simple designs are very difficult to realize, but this mini audio device is a good example that achieves it. The interface is well made and adequately shows the necessary information. The intent of the exterior design is to appeal its easiness and simplicity to the user, and this is effectively achieved. The mounts are especially beautiful, with the beauty of the hidden mounts giving a sense of the calculated, well made design. We can feel that the impact of the mounts on not only the design but the sound as well was considered, which makes us empathize with the designers.
