Plantronics announced earlier this week that the BackBeat PRO, BackBeat FIT, EncorePro 510/520 and EncorePro 540 have won the prestigious International Forum (iF) Product Design Awards 2015 in the Audio/Video category. Plantronics
products have previously been honored with iF design awards, including the Voyager Legend CS and RIG Gaming Audio System (2014), the Voyager PRO Bluetooth® headset (2010) and EncorePro headset (2009).
For more than 60 years, the iF design award has been recognized around the world as a label of design excellence. This year, the high-profile, international jury evaluated more than 5,000 entries from 53 countries in order to determine who would receive this coveted seal of excellence. Products were evaluated based on criteria including innovation, functionality, design quality, material, ergonomics and environmental compatibility.
“Functional, attractive, high-quality design is fundamental to developing products that integrate seamlessly into today’s modern lifestyles,” said Darrin Caddes, vice president of Corporate Design at Plantronics. “Being recognized by iF for the design of several of our products this year is a tremendous honor, and we will continue to integrate exceptional design with industry-leading performance audio and reliability in our communications solutions for businesses and consumers.”
The official iF Product Design Awards 2015 ceremony was held on February 27th in Munich. The award-winning
products will also be featured in one of three subsequent special shows in the iF design exhibition in Hamburg, Germany.
The iF award for design is the latest award for the Plantronics BackBeat PRO and BackBeat FIT headsets since being introduced last year. BackBeat PRO and BackBeat FIT were also named 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honorees in the Headphones product category.
