About

Thanks for checking out the EYE1, EYE1 is a speaker that utilize the vacuum tube technology .Vacuum tube is the memory of an era and the origin of electroacoustic. The vacuum tube speaker has its inherent charm. Let's witness the regeneration of the classic together! 


Whether you encounter any unhappy moment in the workplace or in daily life, music and the warm lights emitted by vacuum tubes will give you strength and courage to continue!

We chose two kinds of solid wood, black walnut and white maple, which are most suitable for making speakers. These two kinds of wood can guarantee not only the acoustical perfection, but also the beauty of the finished products. It's not only a retro but also a friendly speaker.

We have chosen linen as the sound mesh fabric. The texture of linen can be perfectly combined with wood. The combination of these two materials  make the product simple and elegant.

There are two choices, Light and dark colours. You can choose them according to your home environment.

The linen, when you look at it quietly, is like the stars in the night sky, twinkling and twinkling. When you listen to music, inadvertently see it, you will find it's low-key elegance.

In the past, the vacuum tube loudspeaker was large, with many cables, complicated and high power consumption. Now, we combine the vacuum tube and loudspeaker into one. Through modern design and technology, on the basis of guaranteeing the original sound quality of the original vacuum tube loudspeaker, we can achieve a suitable size. Let it be in your home or office where you want to put it.

The size of eye1 :( 242 x 130 x 138 mm )/  ( 9.5 x 5.1 x 5.4 in)

Vacuum tube, It has a history of more than 60 years in the field of audio.It's so beautiful, it shouldn't be in history, it should be in our life.

The Model of vacuum tube we selected is 5670, and its service life can be up to 1W hours.

In audio design, we use vacuum tube as front pole power amplifier and combine 3 inch full frequency neodymium magnetic loudspeaker with L-type phase guide tube solution. Eye1 achieves the perfect auditory experience of low-frequency fullness, medium-frequency gracefulness and high-frequency penetration.

In order to achieve a suitable bass, we tried different sizes and shapes of inverted tube, and finally chose the L-type inverted tube which is now used. In this process, we found that sound is really a magic thing.

The size of the body is only 242x130x138mm, the frequency response range is 65HZ-15KHZ, and the sensitivity is 86 dB.

Frequency parameters are important but the frequency response parameter of a speaker does not represent the sound quality of a speaker. We believe that good sound quality needs to be adjusted a little by the tuner's ear. 

Eye1 can satisfy your pursuit of not only jazz, rock, blues, symphony, R&B tone quality, but also satisfy your pursuit of other types of music tone quality.

To avoid the complicated cables of traditional electronic tube speakers, we use wireless connection. In order to enable music to be transmitted without loss, we use Bluetooth 4.2 module. Effective transmission distance can reach 10 meters, of course, we have reserved 3.5 mm audio interface, you can use the audio line we configure to connect your audio player.

Before the Kickstarter campaign, we had  tested for different users. As a result, many people would ask a question: Can this vacuum tube scald my hand? In fact, when the vacuum tube is working, its surface temperature is below 40°C  (104°F)

For the sake of our common survival of the earth, the solid wood provided by our partners has been certified by FSC. FSC certification is also one of the important factors for us to choose timber partners!

Eye1 is like a kid. We've seen it turn from drawings to products. When our team connected and made a sound after a PCBA test, wow, we're really happy right now! After that, we tested and adjusted it again and again. Finally, we heard the sound quality  eye1 should make.We thought that the good sound quality should be shared with everyone.

Thanks, we are a small team, including designers, acoustic engineers and hardware engineers, some of whom are band guitarists. Our goal is to bring you high quality acoustic products. We believe that good sound can spread to distant places.

Eye1 will bring you a good hearing experience

Risks and challenges

Eye1 is an nostalgic yet kind product,Before coming to Kickstarter we worked around the clock in the past time. We have completed the product development, and submitted our design to all significant quality and performance tests through numerous prototypes.

In the process of product development, we have encountered many problems, such as the sealing problem caused by the use of solid wood splicing, but we have perfectly solved these problems through professional factories and it can be mass-produced .

We believe that when you receive Eye1, you will give it a satisfactory smile.
