SONOS :: Behind the Scenes

by Volker Weber

Sonos does not only make great products. There also also really nice people there. Mieko once made a long trip to meet me in San Jose with a suitcase full of demo gear. And John MacFarlane used to have a very different haircut. :-)


Sonos looks like a fun place to work. There should be more companies like this.

Very true,

if you ever had the opportunity to meet some of the key individuals there, such as Bill Waugh, Director of Operations, whom I had the pleasure to work with in the past, then you know why they are so successfull - listen, understand, introduce, listen again and only be satisfied with a 100% result!

Thanks, SONOS!

Jetzt hast Du es endlich geschafft, Volker. Ich bestelle mir nachher einen Play:1 als Einstiegsdroge bei Herrn Lang im Shop...

Ralph Hammann, 2014-02-07 10:39

Puh, das war jetzt aber auch echt schwierig mit Dir.

A very clever video, ticking all the right communications boxes. Or. Just the way it is. I prefer the latter.

@Ralph: Ich würde gerne mal einen play:1 größentechnisch austesten. Unser play:3 passt nämlich nicht mehr auf die Hängeschränke in der neuen Küche...

Ralf Hammen, 2014-02-08 17:41

Ralf: falls die Höhe das Problem ist: Der Play:1 ist höher als der Play 3 liegend.

Another segment Apple transformed for the better - Marketing Videos. I like it

As most of my articles roll off the front page rather quickly, I am making an archive of previous posts available here. You can also use the handy search box at the top of the page if you are looking for something particular.
