Full and Vibrant Theater Sound from Your Tablet

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

OIO AmpThe most amazing sound can come from this seemingly simple little accessory for your tablet. That’s right, with Amp by OIO, you will get a full theater experience while watching movies on your mobile device. This case offers a sense of surround sound by separating the left and right channels just like in the theaters.

Even though it appears to be a simple case with speakers, it’s the tech involved that makes it so extraordinary. The front is made of a honeycomb fiberboard so the whole surface creates the sound. And the circular disks on the back are electromagnets that pushes the whole front panel. This combined with the holes in the honeycomb allows the movement of air that creates a deep and encompassing sound that can fill an entire room. This listening experience is the result of over two years of research and development by experimenting with everything from drums, guitars and even cardboard boxes until they got it just right.

The case itself has 10 hinges like a laptop that allows it to be folded in different configurations and even with the speakers to the back of the stand to use in situations where headphones are a must, like on an airplane. The current design is made to fit the iPad Air 1 & 2 as well as the iPad Pro 9.7, however it connects via Bluetooth, so you can actually use any tablet or even a cell phone and still get the full theater sound. Also, upcoming models will include holders for other devices.

The units will be available in a couple of months starting at $249. Check out their Indiegogo InDemand for preorders and a 20% discount. This is something that you truly need to experience to believe. Our team was blown away by the sound when we fired it up at the booth and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
