incorporating a portable entertainment system into its thin cover, european and US-based company atoll have designed the ‘sound pad’. the accessory includes a magnetic, protective outer case that flips open into a bluetooth stand-alone speaker system. delivering a premium sound, the high quality speakers include four built-in and two mini sub-woofers. the cover itself is made from durable silicone that is soft and silky to touch, while being easy to keep clean. the ‘soundpad’ boosts the overall intensity of playing games, enhances the clarity in movies and conversations and also helps to experience the full range of music being played.

the tailor-made piece discreetly compliments the iPad, magnetically aligning itself to fit, like an extra layer of skin. meticulously engineered, the four tuned speakers transform the ability of the iPad to play sound, offering five times the original volume. the wireless device also supports, the iPhone, iPad mini or any other smartphone, tablet or computer via bluetooth technology. designed to be completely mobile, a rechargeable high capacity lithium-ion battery means it won’t drain the device’s power, and gives up to ten house of unplugged playtime.
