About this project

Simply Amazinc, LLC is proud to bring you the SoundBenderTM (Patents Pending with US Patent Office)
SoundBender amplifies iPad 2 sound instanlty!
As one of the 50 million + owners of the iPad 2 I am sure you have noticed that since the speaker is directed away from you it sends the sound all around the room, making it difficult to hear. SoundBender solves this problem instantly. It magnetically secures to the iPad 2 speaker area and bends the sound toward you causing amazing sound amplification and enhancement of your listening experience of music, movies, games, audiobooks, facetime, or any sound on your iPad 2!
Watch video of SoundBender in action and hear the difference!
Because SoundBender is magnetic it goes on and stays on keeping a tight fit around the speaker and reflecting sound to the max. It fits extremely well with the Apple SmartCover either open or closed and on all cases that have the speaker area exposed... since most do, the SoundBender should fit the vast majority of cases and covers on the market.
SoundBender's compact and cool design allows it to be left on all of the time or kept in your pockect, magnetized to your fridge or file cabinet, and always available! Its great for presentations, movie night, on the go, or anytime! With no need for cumbersome wires, or any power-source SoundBender is truly a MUST HAVE accessory you will never want to be without!

St. Paul Pioneer Press - "Weiss seems like he is a Kickstarter natural...Think of him as Steve Jobs with a yarmulke, a bushier beard and an energy level dialed up a few notches. He says "amazing" a lot, as the recently deceased Apple co-founder used to do." By Julio Ojeda-Zapata
