A Bluetooth speaker like no other.

Today's portable speakers share the same problems:

  • Not enough volume
  • Totally boring bass

Belle is our answer. It's an innovative, next-generation speaker that can:

  • Blast 100W of powerful sound and deeper bass than any competitor.
  • Sync with speakers of other brands and literally multiply your sound.
  • Become a dedicated subwoofer in "SUB Mode" and play pure, exhilarating bass.

The result is full, powerful sound in any room or space.

Stop sacrificing sound for portability.

Back Belle today and experience your music how the artist intended, everywhere you go. And with free worldwide shipping, anyone can take advantage of this limited Kickstarter deal.

We hope you enjoy the rest of our page.

Sincerely,

The Podo Labs Team

  • Question: What's louder than the most powerful Bluetooth speaker?
  • Answer: That speaker plus more!

Belle solves the problem of weak portable sound by syncing together speakers of any brands.

This will allow you to fill any space with a multi-speaker setup, meaning full surround-sound you can take anywhere.

Give your old speakers new life, or meet up with friends to sync theirs. Only Belle can connect to them all. 

The best part is, Belle is future-proof, as it will work with any Bluetooth speaker coming out in the future.

So you can invest in Belle's multi-syncing abilities with peace of mind.

Music is just not the same

...without sufficient bass, which is painfully weak on current Bluetooth speakers.

Belle breaks the usual mold for the following physics-based reasons. When it comes to bass, bigger is better:

  • The largest bass radiators of any portable speaker
  • Giant 5" subwoofer 
  • Large interior volume 

The results are clear in the graphs above. Belle is consistently more powerful throughout, especially in the lower frequency regions.

Belle can reproduce bass down to 35 Hz, lower than any of these more expensive speakers from $299, to even $499. This means that in comparison to Belle, you end up paying more to literally hear less.

Check out this video to see Belle take on Bang & Olufsen's $499 flagship speaker:

 

 

Take it to the next level

...with "SUB" mode, by dedicating all power to pumping out pure, raw, bass. This transforms Belle into the first standalone Bluetooth subwoofer. Connect more speakers to handle the mids and highs while Belle supplies the bass.

See and feel the bass

...like you never have before with Belle's pulsating bass radiators. Ours are second in size only to those on the $3,000 Phantom Gold and allow Belle to reach such deep bass in a smaller size. 

These radiators pound rapidly in and out with the music, creating vibrations you can not only feel in your body, but see with your eyes and feel with your hands.

It's an exhilarating addition to your music you absolutely must experience yourself. 

 

 

 

We source top quality components from prominent suppliers and bring them to you without celebrity endorsements or crazy brand-name markup.

With this, Belle delivers crisp, clear, and powerful output of 100 watts. In addition the orb shaped distribution ensures your music sounds great from any spot in the room.

The best part is, Belle's multi-syncing lets you grow and build your sound however you want. Supplement the mids and highs and allow Belle to focus on the lows. Your fully custom sound system is all up to you.

 

 

All the sound you need, anywhere.

Belle is completely wireless and battery-operated, so you can enjoy quality sound wherever your adventures take you. It'seasy to carry, durable, and definitely a conversation-starter.

Belle plays approximately 8 hours on one charge and takes 3 hours to recharge. Or, leave Belle plugged in and play for as long as you'd like.

You can add non type-B wall adapters after the conclusion of the campaign.

 

 

Belle is as perfect around the house as it is for any outdoor adventure.

Add a dedicated subwoofer to your room's audio setup, or move Belle around with you to the bathroom, garage, bedroom, etc.

As easy-to-use yet more powerful than the speakers you're used to, Belle just might be the last speaker you ever need.

 

 

 

With Belle, you can create a sound system with any speakers you want with complete control over the brands and budget.

You're also not limited to any one music playing app. Simply imagine the entire system as one normal speaker playing anything from your device.

Not to mention if you want to take this setup outside, a Wi-Fi system is completely out of the question.

You can even make your sound system Google Home or Amazon compatibleby connecting to Belle and controlling it with your voice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                     

 

 

Risks and challenges

While Belle is our fourth product after designing and successfully delivering several products in the past, manufacturing a new product carries with it risks for delays in production. We pledge to be open and honest in our communication in the event that any delays arise. Currently we are finishing production of our last product, Jack, which will ship to backers through September and October 2017.

Kickstarter is an amazing platform where backers can show their enthusiasm and support for new ideas. Podo Labs and Kickstarter both stress that this platform is not a traditional "store" and hope that you understand that you are joining a journey and relationship. We're confident that it will be a great one. Thank you so much and we can't wait to bring Belle to you all.
