ORA sound system for iPad by objekt

‘ORA’ sound system for iPad by objekt 


designed for iPad, ORA merges high-quality sound with a minimal, portable design that allows users a better way to enjoy their favorite movies, music, apps, and more. developed by san francisco-based design group objekt, the device provides immersive audio quality, and portable protection.


featuring eight tuned, front-facing speakers which deliver five times the sound volume compared to the iPad’s standard speaker, an integrated cover that protects the speakers and screen and flips open into a stand ensures a lightweight and rugged enclosure. the system also includes its own battery, allowing users up to 10 hours of unplugged play time. 


‘ORA’ is currently seeking funding on kickstarter

its advanced audio design features includes a digital signal processor (DSP) controls the 3D stereo expansion in both landscape and portrait orientations, creating a wider stereo image and a full, immersive experience. the incorporation of dynamic range control, makes use of the 16W peak power available to present small audio cues and prevent distortion from louder audio. a parametric equalizer adjusts the speakers’ dynamic response with optimized volume to ensure a better listening experience in all conditions.
