Introducing Ampple, the next generation of portable iPad sound

09 Jun 16

The Ampple speaker might just fix your tinny iPad sound - well that's that a team of sound engineers and tech geeks from Latvia are thinking.

The Ampple is an active HD stereo speaker fitted into a 12mm iPad case, which provides 3x the sound that a normal iPad can produce.

Just put your iPad in the case, turn the Ampple on, connect both devices through Bluetooth and then play your audio/video with instant sound boost that can be heard 18 metres away.

The lightweight Ampple uses an acoustic design that enhances frequency range, a professional CONEQ sound algorithm that produces clear, hi-def sound, a 5000mAh Li Po battery that lasts 10 hours.

Ampple is committed to producing and delivering all pre-ordered devices, so if the Ampple sounds great enough to purchase, the company will make sure that you get it.

Ampple is currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to support its development. If you would like to contribute, donate here.
