Sound Cover, an ultra-thin iPad smart cover with built-in flat NXT stereo speakers, offers excellent sound, portability and protection.

Have you ever wished for better sound on your iPad for travel, business and entertainment on the go?

Now you can grant your iPad an amazing audio experience, anywhere, anytime!

Sound Cover, an ultra-thin iPad case with built-in NXT stereo speakers, offers solid, powerful, crystal clear sound that boosts your iPad's volume by up to 300%. It's perfect for music, video games or movies; it protects your iPad, keeping it safe and stylish on the go; it has a super lightweight and modern design, ideal for travel, office or home.

Sound Cover™ is an ever-evolving product dedicated to the iPad series, so you can choose a Sound Cover based on your iPad model (iPad 2 or newer).We have been hearing many rumors about the next generation iPad's design; to tailor-fit the new specifications, we'll add a new model of Sound Cover after the new iPad is released. Now we are taking pre-orders for both the iPad 2 and iPad 3 versions.

We ship all over the world! The shipping and handling costs are already calculated and shown in each tier, which covers a flat rate for registered airmail to anywhere worldwide from Hong Kong.

Sound Cover™ has two unique features: 

-Rechargeable NXT stereo speakers built into an ultra-thin and durable ABS case

-Integrated aluminum speaker stand with bass boost function

The system is powered by a built-in lithium-ion battery. The Cover has a USB cable you can connect to a computer or USB power source to charge the internal battery. It also comes with a 3.5mm jack to connect your iPad to the built-in speakers, and the volume is managed by iPad’s standard controls. Sound Cover™allows full access to all your iPad buttons and ports, automatically sleeps or wakes up your iPad just like the Apple Smart Cover, and serves as a video/picture viewing stand and typing support.

Sound Cover™ has a Bluetooth edition, enabling a wireless audio connection to your iPad.
