“Leophile’s product is ideal for active wear therefore we consider our audience to be quite playful and adventurous. So in addition to designing ergonomically suitable headphones, we wanted to help others to become more ‘playful’ with their life. In fact, we remind ourselves that our work attitude is to face life with a playful attitude,” said Leophile’s head of marketing Leslie Gu in an interview with Future Sharks.
