ABOUT US

We are a bunch of music enthusiasts, electronic engineers, and craftsmen. We've been producing incredible sound, and now we want to push it a bit further.

Good sound deserves to be packed by precious material, but that could cost a fortune. With your help, we could make this luxury affordable.

With your support, we could make it happen

---------------------------------------------

ABOUT LEATHERWEIGHT 

 

Among all kind of materials we can choose, we picked METAL and LEATHER at last. One is dense, rigid and cold; Another one is soft, flexible and warm.

Together they are one of the most classic combinations, that human beings have been using for thousands of years.

---------------------------------------------

FUNCTION

We put real effort for this well-processed, functional extra layer of skin. And we don't just put it there for a good grip.

Roll out the skin, LEATHERWEIGHT could work as a stand for your devices.

When you are watching movie with your device, you need 2 things

1. A speaker to amplify the volume and quality of the sound

2. A stable stand

Leatherweight is the total solution with elegance

With the eyelet on the skin, you can hang it up with you easily.

Or leave it unattached, wireless connection via Bluetooth 4.0 .

And AUX in, long live analog.

 

---------------------------------------------

SOUND

As music enthusiasts, sound quality is more important than anything else.

We seek for high sound resolution, high volume, and long playing hours. Sounds complicated, but it's pretty straight forward to us

We put a pair of powerful 40 mm, 4ohm, 5 Watt dynamic speaker unit, in metallic body, wrapped with soft leather. Perfect combination to kill the buzz. 

Well Packed with the high capacity lithium-ion battery, altogether, they will make sure this boy can sing LOUD and CLEAR. For 8 hours!

With our experience in electronics and acoustics, we can gurantee you the best sound of Leatherweight!

Risks and challenges

Leather, like any other natural material, it's hard to maintain consistency of its color and texture, small flaws might occur too, but that's what materials are, and that's the essence makes it unique; We are handling precision with flexibility, which is the risk we're taking, but that's the only way for us to make it realistic
