LAS VEGAS—Speaking feet away from where Kygo held a cocktail reception at CES 2020 to celebrate his new product line, the Norwegian DJ took a moment to chat with Adweek about his new line of earbuds and headphones.

After going through many pairs of headphones, Kygo, whose birth name is Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll, said he wanted to prioritize comfort and sound in his own design.

“It’s always been a dream of mine to be part of this whole development process,” he said. “I’m very excited about the product we have now.”
