About

Introducing the Z10 : Wireless speaker with the brain of a computer.

At First glance, the Z10 is unlike any other wireless speaker . Years of development and several prototypes led to the latest innovation in wireless speaker smart technology . The Z10 is unique, smart, powerful and light. The Z10 thinks like a laptop and most of all it looks just as good as it sounds.

Perfection means everything. So we compromised on nothing.

The Z10 is the only wireless speaker ever made with:   

  • Wireless charger docking station;
  • Leather cover/keyboard that syncs with phones (easily send email and text messages, browse the net while listening to your favorite songs);
  • Bluetooth and NFC features;
  • Amplifier features for non-bluetooth phones;
  • Multi function touchscreen music controls.

The art of elegant innovation in the Z10.

The development of new product represents the elegant collision of tradition and modernity. With the Z10, our intention was to design something brand-new, yet familiar; it was a marriage of interpretive engineering and rational design. Its artisanal construction is more like fine-jewelry than manufactured product.

The Z10 pairs easily with your smartphone, iPad or other bluetooth device. We might add it goes well with any suit, shoes or dress.

Z10 production timeline.

Since 2014 we actually have tried everything in the world ourselves . It took us a long time to create a wireless speaker that we would be proud to use ourselves and also proud to offer to our backers . The Z10 has undergone extensive research and development delivering path-finding technology, integrated into a wireless speaker . As perfectionists, and we wanted to challenge years of wireless speaker making.

We are excited to get the best wireless speaker into your hands. A simpler smarter way to wirelessly listen to your music.

International Backers.

The Z10 is for backers all over the world. We'll be shipping worldwide! Please note that Eric (our very emotional shipping supervisor below) wants you to be aware that you may be responsible for any applicable VAT/tax/duties fees upon receipt of your reward. These fees are the responsibility of each backer.

 

What's in the future for the Z10 ?. 

With the help of our backers , we plan on expanding the Z10 family of innovative products and developing :

  • Z- Play: the first music companion app that automatically scans and organizes your music library, delivering mixes tailored to your daily activity. Consumers will be able to select options such as : gym mix, cooking mix, studying mix, sleeping mix, meditating mix, entertaining mix, and more. 
  • Z Keyboard S : the next level remote keyboard will come with a touchscreen LCD screen that will mirror your phone while it is docked on the Z10 wireless speaker. Consumers will be able to use the LCD screen on the keyboard to access all the features in their phones. 
  • Z10 Edge : the world's smartest wireless speakers for tablets and mini-tablets.

Risks and challenges

The Z10 has passed our review, prototype and testing stages successfully.
The projected timeline for production and delivery has been confirmed by our manufacturing partners. We've lined up shipping and repair partners.

That said we are fully staffed and ready to completely deal with any unexpected issues. We are confident in our ability to deliver this product on time, with superior quality. We will keep all of our backers updated along the way.

Unforeseen production delays: The Z10 is manufactured overseas however we expect this to be a low risk . We have been working with the same manufacturers since 2014.

What else? We're based in Connecticut. Your Z10 will be shipped from Connecticut and during the winter , which means deals can occur due to snowstorm .
We will do our absolutely best to fulfill deliveries to you, our backers!
We promise.
