These look rather cool. It’s speakers but it’s also a sort of stand for your iPad.
Carbon Audio has announced the launch of an innovative new lifestyle brand specializing in advanced audio products with uncompromising design. Their first – Zooka – is a slide-on speaker bar designed as an accessory primarily for Apple® products, including iPad®, iPod®, iPhone® and MacBook®.
Among the key features and benefits of Zooka:
- Extraordinary sound quality – Zooka gives listeners a concert hall experience, significantly enhancing music, movies, games and more.
- Wireless Bluetooth mobility – Zooka can “project” sound through wireless Bluetooth, allowing the speaker to be moved up to 30 feet away from the parent device.
- Built-in microphone – Zooka turns your iPad into a high-quality speakerphone enhancing use with Skype, FaceTime and other communication software.
- Unique patented design – Zooka slides onto the edge of an iPad or MacBook without inhibiting the use of the camera.
- Removable kickstand – Zooka allows your iPads to stand up, perfect for watching videos.
With a retail price of $99.95, Zooka is available in nine colors including black, blue, dark grey, green, orange, pink, purple, red and teal and will be released in August.
The Carbon Audio team includes Mark Schneider (Co-Chairman/CEO), formerly vice president and general manager of Logitech International’s audio division; Danny Guez (Co-Chairman), well-known in the fashion industry for his highly successful endeavors, including launching William Rast with partner Justin Timberlake and creating the premium denim label Dylan George Jeans; Jason Martin (Co-Creator/Partner), co-founder and owner of NEW design and previously designer for such brands as Coca-Cola, Gillette, Unilever, Nike, Intel, Dell and Motorola; and Timothy Martin, President of Channel Pacific who brings over 15 years of sales and marketing experience in high tech companies in developing and managing worldwide strategic channel partnerships.
