Thank you for checking it out. +KNOB An Audio Speaker connects to anything Apple like the iPad, iPhone and iPod, anything Android, Blackberry or Windows Phone7

amazing sound

Our Goal is to create the best sounding audio speaker to reproduce music naturally; power it by an audiophile amplifier and give you wireless.

no plastic please

While it is easy to squeeze gorgeous shapes out of plastic housings, gorgeous sound comes from good materials, thick walls and controlled acoustics.

isolation cones + tripod

Great sound without vibration control is useless. Isolating the vibrations from the surrounding area is executed by combining two time-honored solutions. The Isolation Cones and a Tripod. The Isolation Cones reduce the vibration frequencies to the point of contact while the Tripod provides the most stable supporting structure regardless of the surface it rests on.

solo or concert mode

The +KNOB can be run in two modes selected by the Bluetooth button on the back panel. Solo mode is the default mode, where the phone mates automatically as demonstrated in our videos. Perfect for the small apartment or office where you don't want to share your sound. Great for dorm rooms as well. Concert mode is selected by pressing the big blue button on the back panel. If you have more than one +KNOB and want to distribute in the entire house, this is the mode for you. The other +KNOB's in range slave up to the +KNOB master. Up to 7 of them with BT 3.0 and up.

iconic simplicity

To make this possible we have taken all our knowledge of design, engineering and sound and repackaged it in an iconic simplicity. I have applied everything I know, chosen the right materials, the right electronic components, make a list of the ones we have to have and the ones we can leave aside while still allowing the speaker to sound good. We appealed to everyone I and my friends know and gave it everything we have. Help us make this real. The more pledges we have the more we can negotiate with our suppliers for the best possible speakers.

"Personality goes a long way”

DesignHuman Colectiv

This whole dream, our american dream, will not be possible without you. Or without the ever growing collection of talented individuals that call themselves DesignHuman. We started humbly, we still are and will always remain. We all had a dream of making something better, a statement when we grow up. And sooner or later we have to grow up. So we started with what we know, design, and what we love, music. We hope you'll pledge to make this dream real and become a part of our DesignHuman Colectiv movement.

Thank you for helping us get here!
