Soundfreaq Makes your iPad Sound Good
 
 

The number of accessories on the market for the range of Apple gear like the iPhone and iPad grows more every day. Many of the iPhone products are docks that are designed to charge and let the user play music from the device at the same time. There are a few docking stations on the market for the iPad today, but not nearly as many as there are for other platforms.

One of the best things about the iPad and the iPhone is that the devices support Bluetooth, which means you can stream that music wireless to speakers and other devices from across the room if you want. A new speaker platform has surfaced that is aimed at the iPad, iPhone, and any other Bluetooth packing device has surfaced. The thing is a docking station for the iPhone or iPod touch and other dockable iPods and will charge the devices.

The only way to get music to this thing from the iPad and other devices that aren't from Apple is with Bluetooth streaming. That is fine though, Bluetooth music sounds really good as far as most of us are concerned. I use Bluetooth streaming from my iPhone to my car stereo all the time with Ford's Sync system and it sounds as good as the same tracks do on CDs to my ears.

The Soundfreaq Sound Platform as the device is officially called has custom engineered Kevlar reinforced balanced drivers inside and an acoustically tuned dual-port chamber. The device looks old school with large knobs rather than buttons that remind me of my dad's stereo form the 80's. The Sound Platform will also support audio when watching movies and viewing video on your device. The device will hit Target stores on November 29 for $199 and will be sold online as well.

"The Sound Platform addresses the reality of living in a multi-device, multi-user, multi-tasking world," said Matthew Paprocki, Boombang co-founder and creative director of Soundfreaq. "We designed Sound Platform to deliver exceptional acoustics that can be enjoyed with any Bluetooth-enabled product - the audio experience is amazing."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
