The way SoundClip works isn't all that hard to understand. The iPhone emits a fair amount of acoustic energy through the speaker. Unfortunately, many of these sound waves are directed down and away from the user. SoundClip reflects them toward you so you can hear them better.
But how does it actually amplify? The dimensions and shape of the conical chamber create a resonance chamber facilitating the attenuation of some frequencies, and the amplification of others. The next part is the trickiest. We tuned the resonance chamber to actually improve the sound from your iPhone, resulting in a frequency response that is flatter, and more natural sounding.
Simple and Useful
- 10dB gain between 6kHz and 20kHz
- Focuses iPhone sound toward you instead of away
- Keeps your dock connector free of dust
- Prevents blocking of speaker while gaming
- Handy cord grip
Ever find yourself cupping your hand over your iPhone's speaker so you can hear it better? Or how about that video game thing where you turn left and then can't hear your bandicoot crash?
SoundClip solves these small problems, and also improves the quality of sound coming from your iPhone. In our testing, SoundClip amplified the iPhone speaker by 10dB between 6kHz and 20kHz. This small amplification gives your iPhone a brighter sound and additional clarity. The frequency response is improved, resulting in a more linear output and clearer audio.
Gaming in landscape mode occasionally results in the speaker being blocked by your hand. Steering is hard enough without also worrying about the sound. That's another small benefit you'll notice when using SoundClip.
Own your Sound
A tuned conical deflection chamber designed to make the audio from your iPhone clearer and also slightly louder. Sound waves are reflected toward you, instead of away, so you feel more involved in your game, movie, or music.
SoundClip amplifies iPhone audio by 10dB between 6kH and 20kHz, resulting in a cleaner, more accurate response.
Storage is simple. A cord-gripping feature keeps SoundClip securely fastened to your charge cable during syncing and charging.
