K-array Presents Ecodock, Mini Loudspeaker for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S(January 11, 2012)
Old Lyme, Conn., January 9, 2012 Audio specialist Sennheiser announced a new consumer audio accessory from distributed brand K-array: the Ecodock. The Ecodock is a freestanding miniature loudspeaker for iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, capable of boosting the audio signal by up to 10dB ? with no battery or external power supply. Sporting a sleek, compact design and priced at just $19.99, the Ecodock is perfectly suited for amplifying conference calls, listening to podcasts, or enjoying music at modest levels.
With a base of clear Plexiglas and a similar form factor as the iPhone, the Ecodock uses the natural laws of physics and the principle of the ?horn loudspeaker to efficiently distribute acoustic energy over a wide air surface. Since the device fits easily into a pocket and requires no batteries, it can be used just about anywhere and is effortless to operate.
A small package making a big difference
For every Ecodock sold, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the ?A Smile for Burkina association, a charitable organization dedicated to helping the ?Les Saints Innocents childrens orphanage in Burkina Faso ? one of the poorest West African countries in the world. ?Les Saints Innocents is home to 130 orphans, four nuns and 16 caregivers.
?A Smile for Burkina began working with the orphanage in 2008 and is now hard at work on the construction and furnishing of three new classrooms for the children.
?The Ecodock packs a lot of fun and ingenuity in an incredibly small package, commented Dawn Birr, Vice President of Installed Sound and Distributed Brands at Sennheiser, which distributes K-array products in the U.S. ?It is the perfect inexpensive accessory for iPhone users and also supports a great cause for children in need.
The Ecodock is available individually or in case packs of 24. For more information on the Ecodock and ?A Smile for Burkina, please visit http://www.k-array.com/en/ecodock.
