About

 Bring the Future To You  

GravaStar is more than just another speaker. We have reinvented how speakers look: Tight, metal shell with sleek angles and built-in psychedelic lights, inspired by futuristic science fiction and FPS games.   

The metal spider robot appearance doesn't just look cool, but its spherical body allows the sound waves to resonate to enhance its audio and the tripod legs form its stable structure. With a weight of 1.6KG(3.53lb), GravaStar remains stable even when playing music with heavy bass at high volume, without affecting its sound quality.  

Simply, GravaStar provides you with a sensational musical experience through its powerful sound and deep bass. 

We sent a pilot production sample to the famous consumer electronics review magazine Stuff.tv, they really love the design and product. Read more on Stuff.tv

 Immerse Yourself in Sound Waves 

The GravaStar has a diameter of 140mm(5.51 inches) and a radiator of 80mm(3.15 inches). Its large bass driver delivers full and powerful bass for your music and gaming experience.

In addition, the GravaStar uses a 70mm(2.76 inches) 15W full-range speaker. The natural spherical diaphragm reproduces clear mids and crisp highs for a clear and smooth sound up to 20KHz. The bass driver is made from a polyphenylene composite with a metal magnetic core to reproduce deeper drums and vocals.

A Detailed Look at GravaStar and GravaStar Mini

We designed 2 models of the GravaStar: GravaStar and GravaStar Mini. Both models have the same great features, except for its size and lights.

*Note that GravaStar will be shipped in December, 2018. And Mini will be shipped in March, 2019.

Demo of GravaStar 

Futuristic Design Spherical Speaker

The sphere shape design provides GravaStar a much clear sound compares to other shapes. Without any parallel walls or edges, spherical surface can greatly reduce internal cabinet sound wave reflection and interference.  Meanwhile, a spherical speaker allows sound waves transform in all directions in the air, so the listeners will be immersed in soundwaves.

People like being different, and so does the Bluetooth speaker. The "alien" design with glowing lights makes the GravaStar appear like a creature from space, ready to come to life.

Decorate Your Life with GravaStar

Are you tired of old boxy Bluetooth speakers and looking for a cool one? Imagine listening to music, playing video games, enjoying movies, and watching sports with GravaStar. Its alien-look turns your room into a scene of your favorite sci-fi movie.       

 Take GravaStar on Your Next Trip  

Wireless means freedom so you can take your GravaStar everywhere. Take GravaStar on your next trip and you'll see how it will be your best travelling buddy. 

Shock-Absorbent Zinc Alloy Shell    

The main body of the GravaStar is composed from a high quality zinc alloy sphere that allows sound waves to resonate within its space. The metal legs at the base of its body form a highly stable structure which increases shock absorption. 

With a weight of 1.6KG(3.53lb), the GravaStar is stable even when playing heavy bass at high volumes, without sacrificing its sound quality. 

The legs can be easily folded for transportation and storage. 

Ambient Psychedelic Lighting

The mystical green glow makes GravaStar look like a space invader, which gives a higher sense of feeling as a high-tech product built for the center of your party. 

Note: The light of GravaStar is green, but the light of GravaStar Mini is red.

Deep in Sound 

Carefully engineered full-range and subwoofer drivers provides crystal clear and distortion-free sound, along with rich bass across all genres of music, from pop, to jazz, to rock.

Its strong magnetic core recreates a natural-sounding human voice with enhanced bass for strong musical beats. 

Bluetooth 5.0

GravaStar is equipped with Qualcomm latest CRS Bluetooth 5.0, with optimized features:  

  • Faster transfer speed;
  • Further range distance;
  • Lower Power Consumption 

The speaker adopts Qualcomm's Bluetooth® wireless audio codec with Qualcomm® aptXTM HD technology, improving its signal-to-noise ratio to minimize background noise. The listener will hear the tiniest of details in its music to provide realistic sound that is indistinguishable from the musician’s live performance.

1 GravaStar+ 1 GravaStar= Stereo Sound

GravaStar is equipped with Qualcomm's CRS Bluetooth chip with True Wireless Stereo (TWS), which means that the GravaStar can not only be used independently, but also can be connected with a second speakers. So you will have a Stereo sound at your home.  

USB-C Fast Charge+ AUX Input

GravaStar is charged via USB-C, which has reversible connectors and faster charging, and quicker data transfer rates.  

Meanwhile, GravaStar also has a AUX input port giving audio playback options through Bluetooth or 3.5mm stereo audio cable giving you choice of what you need when you use it.

Home Concert At Your Fingertips

The touch-sensitive volume control is on the top, allowing you to easily adjust its volume freely.  

 Note that this function is not available on GravaStar Mini.

16 Hours Battery Life 

You'll be able to use the GravaStar for up to 16 hours, which gives you plenty of time to enjoy your music, no matter the time of day or night, whether indoors or outdoors.   

Note that the battery life of GravaStar Mini is 10 hours.
