Bluetooth and Juice!

Can I get a DUH up in here?! — Because DENO is a portable audio design that just makes plain, perfect sense.

Compact and durable, it’s easy to tote around and also features a convenient cradle for keeping your device handy and stable. DO WANT!

Turn on the Quiet

Turn on the Quiet

This audio device, called Joe, will be your bestie when it comes to your personal office space at work. When surrounding noise pollution is disturbing your flow, Joe produces white noise (a sound composed of all audible frequencies to the human ear) to essentially “cancel-out” cacophony so you can focus. It’s like being in your own imaginary bubble of isolation when you don’t have the option to close the door! Vid after the jump!

Tube Amp Meets Tablet

Tube Amp Meets Tablet

Låmpion is a hybrid tube amplifier and dock designed for audiophiles who want to use their smart devices, including tablets and smartphones, without losing connectability to their other high-end audio equipment. Despite this added functionality, the design maintains a simplistic and balanced blend of materials and accents that support its premium vacuum tube amp style without being too technical in overall form. Definitely a man cave must-have!

A Different Desk from the Rest

A Different Desk from the Rest

Soundbox is a one-of-a-kind design that stands out both aesthetically and functionally! At the heart of this whimsical desk is an integrated old-school amplification system that captures audio from a recessed smartphone dock built-in to its surface. Odd, but oh-so cool! An eccentric blend of materials including mesh and polished metalwork mixed with patchwork wood are a perfect compliment to its overall unconventionality.

A Transforming Twist on the Speaker

A Transforming Twist on the Speaker

Twist is the portable speaker that functions exactly as you might imagine- with a twist! In the off position, it appears a smooth, simple cube, but turn it on and 2 corner layers twist around to reveal hi-def outputs. Keeping with the stark aesthetic, the subwoofer is also hidden on the underside. The transforming design not only puts the fun in functionality but protects the sensitive speaker components when not in use!

A speaker as good alive as dead.

A speaker as good alive as dead.

We’d like to believe our beloved devices will last us a lifetime, but they all have an expiration date whether it’s because we upgrade or they fail to continue working. Most current electronics are wrongly designed around our false trust that they will last forever, & therefore pay little attention to the product’s afterlife. The ORBiS Bluetooth speaker is not one of these products! Each & every component was thoughtfully crafted with awareness to it’s impermanence. As much as possible, it’s recyclable, salvageable, fixable & safely disposable. All without sacrificing functionality or beauty!

Headphones Inspired by YOU

Headphones Inspired by YOU

When we think of “biomimicry,” we usually expect an exotic, animal-inspired advancement… but let’s not forget the untapped resource we carry with us every day: our own amazing bodies!  The Canal Headphones are a perfect example of human-biomicry that utilize a series of interlocking and twisting canals that acoustically enhance music as it makes its way to the ears. Think of them as an extension of your own hearing system!

Pint-size Portable Audio With a Punch

Pint-size Portable Audio With a Punch

No larger than the palm of your hand, the Maru speaker concept is the compact choice for BIG sound.

Finally, Rest for the Weary!

Finally, Rest for the Weary!

Can’t sleep because of all the noise? No prob! Ipno allows you to find sleep even in the most disruptive of environments. This personal-size speaker broadcasts white noise: a sound that includes all frequencies and has hypnotic qualities that allow the brain to disconnect external noise while soothing the heart rate and clearing the mind. Good things when you’re trying to catch ZZZs! Simultaneously, microphones in the back capture surrounding noise which is then transmitted to a Digital Signal Processor to cancel out the external noise.

Far-Out Guitar Effects!

Far-Out Guitar Effects!

SpaceFuzz (love the name) is the go-to effect pedal for guitarists and bassists that love a thick and voluminous sound. Despite its simple interface, SpaceFuzz is actually quite versatile. Turn on the “Space” alone for a clear reverb and adjust the time with the potentiometer. Turn on the “Fuzz” alone for a thick and dry fuzzy distortion, then adjust the amount of distortion with the potentiometer. Turn on both to enjoy a filthy, air-ripping sound!
