NEW YORK, NY, November 10, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Bhold is excited to announce our crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for the Bheard Sound Pod, an acoustically optimized phone speaker with an original never-before-seen shape. We're proud to share that the design has been selected as a Kickstarter Staff Pick.
The Bheard Sound Pod amplifies and improves the sound from your phone speakers. The sound pod enhances the highs, mids and lows of your audio to deliver richer, more balanced sound. Use it to amp up your music when hosting friends, when you're cooking or when you're taking a shower. Or, take a phone or video call with it as the sound pod works as an excellent speakerphone as well.
The sound pod's been acoustically optimized through many versions, 37 versions in 6 weeks, through Bhold Labs, a rapid prototyping and beta testing program using 3D printing. This ensures that the final version is more usable and thoughtfully designed for you.
Bhold is the first to introduce the concept of rigorous "beta testing" for physical products to create better design, an entirely new way to use 3D printing. The program is called Bhold Labs.
Here are a series of fun demo videos to show it in action:
