Design Improvements and Testing in Traffic

Friends,

A lot of you have asked to hear what SleekSpeak sounds like on the road and even though my tiny camera microphone can't do it justice, the video will give you a little taste of what it's like riding with SleekSpeak.  

Also, you can see some design changes we've made to respond to what the Kickstarter community is asking for.  You can see SleekSpeak now has a full anodized aluminum body and the speaker is round and inset into an amplifying cone.  Which style do you like better?

Love,

David and the SleekSpeak Team

PS: There are less than 10 days for us to meet our funding goal. If you want to see SleekSpeak on your handlebars this summer, please share SleekSpeak!

      Agree with above commenters on the design. However, if volume vs. appearance is the tradeoff, I'll take louder and uglier.

      My big question around the new look is what Bill said - is that metal speaker lid waterproof? The older design definitely looked more contained for the elements.

      It would be nice to see a video of the speaker in a quiet room, recording the sound from a number of angles, to give a good idea of how it sounds to passers-by. It honestly wasn't that clear in the example this time. Blink and you miss it.

      maybe some music in the vid with a bt more oomf. I dislike the beatles and there music sounds pretty tinny normally making your demo sound like it's just a tweeter. I appreciate how it was recorded but more sound stationary would be good as the wind noise on your mic does nothing to help.

      I agree that the old look was much nicer looking.

      Good job, that's what I wanted to see and hear. How is going to perform in hard rain? Is it water resistant? Thanks

      Thanks for the great update. I would say that the old look was visually superior. But if the new design sounds better, keep the new design. Let's spread the word!
