Excellent Wireless Listening Experience       

Elevate your music lifestyle by creating a powerful speaker network customized to all listening scenarios, with wonderful sound and powerful connectivity. The centerpiece of Luna’s design, Luna Eye, which includes a tweeter will automatically emerge when it is powered on. This telescopic system benefits the diaphragm vibration by giving more space for the speaker inside. It will be super easy to connect Luna to your phone, tablet or laptop for music streaming from your spotify or pandora account. Powered by MESHNET network technology, the Luna network can support up to 32 units paired together as a stereo system.

Luna Eye          

Luna Eye is to the essence of this innovative light and audio system. It comprises an independent tweeter speaker, a light guiding component, a dome and a ring ornament. Applies smart electric telescopic system, Luna eye will automatically come out of the body when powered on just like a camera lenses.

Telescopic Tweeter Speaker System         

To deliver a more layered sound performance better than a sole full-range speaker, our acoustic engineering team equipped Luna with one more tweeter speaker responsible for high-frequency sound independently. The tweeter is embedded in Luna Eye. The telescopic mechanic allows it to come out of the sphere body to give more space between the tweeter and the full range speaker inside. It allows better diaphragm vibration performance and make the whole Luna sound better.

To give you a benchmark of how Luna will sound, here we have a direct comparison between one Luna unit and three other popular speakers on market. In this video we are using the latest acoustic sample of Luna that the R&D team just completed. We are pretty confident that in stereo mode with 2 units of Luna or above, the sound will even be even better.

“It really took me by surprise honestly to have such full beautiful sound that coming out of this small compact device. And with the brush aluminum surface, it feels so familiar. Like my iPhone.” Garrett Martin - Creative Director, Luna User.          

Immersive Stereo  System       

Luna sound system enables a even more layered and immersive stereo listening experience with multi-speaker pairing technology. With one single speaker you can only enjoy the best sound quality in front of the device. On the other hand, traditional stereo system costs tons of money. But today thanks to wireless pairing tech, we can expand the audio experience into stereo groups you can easily afford. Luna applies MESHNET technology, with which you can add up several Luna together to customize your own stereo system easily.

The future of wireless music is here          

Luna’s performance is balanced and smooth in all frequency ranges which makes the music both naturally pleasant and distinctly more layered. Its high sensitivity makes the sound more transparent and resonant. Under the same music source, it renders an all-around upgrade of acoustic performance.

Luna is built with the most advanced audio engineer technology, which is a perfect integration of Sound, Light and Appearance. The aircraft grade aluminum skeleton as well as the most robust structure that ensures crystal clear delivery of full range sound. Press the back power button, let the outstanding, distortion-free sound fills the room, feel the difference.

Luna Eye Full Range Speaker          

Luna’s 2-inch full range NdFeB speaker with less distortion, more linear magnetic path. From damper to air-flow design, from harmonic absorption to control of sizing technique, the fact that we never overlook a single detail that consummates Luna’s delightful voice.

Feel-in-Chest Bass Sound          

No more internal airflow disturbance or bass reflex structure wind noise, thanks to the superior acoustic chamber engineering. It gives mid-Frequency Response and superior separation, which make deep bass precise and effortless.

Multiroom experience has never been so smooth and easy. No need for bridges or complicated apps. Luna is natively compatible with your home Wi-Fi. Set up multiple speakers in different rooms to expand your music experience into the entire house.          

Party Mode          

Luna is the perfect fit for your home party. Simple and easy sync up maximum 32 units of Luna to rock every corner of your room. Everyone can stream their own music to share with the crowd.

Only with a simple touch on your Luna, it instantly streams music to any room you want. Powered by MESHNET network technology, the music network can be expanded up to 32 rooms.          

Whatever you listen to with your Spotify or Pandora account, you can easy have it on Luna. Speaker should be designed to keep updated with people’s listening behavior. We work closely with all mainstream music service, and third party platforms. The result is universal compatibility with dozens of service providers. Straight out of the box, Luna is ready to rock off your roof.           

Seamless Integration with Airplay          

Luna fits perfectly with your airplay devices as its Hi-Fi complement. Connect multiple Luna wireless to your Apple TV to get a full immersive audio-visual experience. www.apple.com/tv

Futuristic Design          

Luna inherited the spirit of our relentless pursuit of great design and futuristic expression from its predecessor, Mars by crazybaby™. The sphere is the most perfect and harmonious geometric pattern in the world, yet also an insurmountable challenge in the field of industrial design. To give Luna a truly flawless look, we specifically picked aircraft grade aluminum as its material and adopted both three-dimensional stretch-bending technology and a high precision cold forging technique.

Just the right amount of comfortable grip    

Made of aircraft grade aluminum utilizing with three-dimensional stretch-bending technology, Luna has this stunning design like a piece of fine art, from the Uni-body front cover . to the exquisite brim. But these features aren’t just for shown: its sophisticated crafted anodized surface feels as good as it looks.

High precision cold forging technology          

Luna’s surface is made with cutting-edge CNC cold forging technology. It requires extremely high precision and is far more complex compared to traditional die-cast molding techniques, however, we took the risk of increased costs, just to ensure Luna has a 100% flawless look.

In order to minimize the potential risk, we have consign a dedicated team with project and product leaders to monitor the engineering team to hit the target timeline. If delays, we will loop all backers in and resolve a fast route.

• Forecasting Risk
We do our utmost to align production plan towards the forecast demands. Each forecast has some variance according to our past production knowledge, which may result in short supply of materials and capacity to fulfill all demands. We will keep you timely update in case such incidents will occur and always resolve at first priorities by calibration of the supply chain.

• Supply Chain Risk
We are a group of the experts in research & design, manufacturing, operations and logistics. With proven records during past a decade, we have established solid relationships with the complete supply chain for the consumer electronics, and dive deep to producing the premium products, Luna by crazybaby is one of the many. However, sometimes we still facing unforeseeable factors that causes delays and shortages of supply caused by logistics or force of nature.
