Jonas Breme's design concept promotes slow listening by making the wearer savor the musical experience.

‘Listen Carefully‘ is a design concept developed by Jonas Breme as part of his BA about music-listening behavior at the Interface Design program at the University of Applied Sciences in Potsdam, Germany. The design is a pair of sensitive headphones that promote slow listening, reminding the wearer to focus and concentrate while listening to music. The headphones lower the playback volume if the wearer makes juddering movements, thus “forcing” them to sit still, relax, and enjoy the experience.
