You know Bluetooth speakers? Of course you do and I am sure you also know that those so-called stereo Bluetooth speakers ain’t really stereo because the ‘stereo’ is, in fact, packed into one unit. Now, that’s not exactly stereo, is it? For the sake of portability, it looks that will be the closest solution you can get (to actual stereo, stereo) but not if DUOECHO can help it. The ingenious thing about DUOECHO is, it appears to be a sleek, single unit, but it is actually two speakers that are magnetically adhered to each other for easy of storage and transport.
When you are ready to use, just pull the apart and you got yourself two speakers that are wirelessly connected, and all set to pair with the Bluetooth-enabled source of your choice. Inspired by bamboo, each speaker sports a sleek curvature aluminum construction and packs a 1.25-inch 3W silk dome tweeter with nano-coating to boot, along with a 1.57-inch 6W Kevlar-reinforced pulp fiber woofer and a passive radiator technology to deliver pure and natural audio reproduction with punchy bass. All told, the duo puts out a healthy 18 watts of audio bliss with a frequency response ranging from 110Hz-20kHz.
Wireless streaming is afforded by Bluetooth 4.1 with aptX, while rechargeable lithium-ion battery in each speaker offers up to 8 hours of playback in between charges. Like any good Bluetooth speakers, DUOECHO also serves as a speakerphone for taking calls in the midst of your audio enjoyment. Two finishes are being offered now on Kickstarter: Minimal Grey and Future Silver.
With nearly a month and half left on the calendar, DUOECHO has already won’t the Internet over. The campaign have since blast past its set funding goal of $30K, pushing past the $100K mark – thanks to the 700 plus backers. The early bird perks are all spoken for, but you can still grab a set for $159. I don’t want to exaggerate, but DUOECHO may very well be the best thing to happen since the invention of Bluetooth speakers. I kid you not. I mean, seriously, Bluetooth stereo speakers that are actually separate units and yet portable as one? That is innovation.
