Rockford, lIllinois (February 13, 2014) – Prescient Audio, developer of the just-released ThinDriver™ TD-12, the world’s thinnest, lightest, coolest-running 12″ subwoofer, introduces the Prescient AudioCase™, a sleek new audio-enhanced smartphone case – and a Kickstarter campaign to fund commercial development and tooling. The PrescientAudioCase will be made available for iPhone 5/5s and Samsung Galaxy S4.
“Crowdfunding is the perfect way for a cutting-edge company like ours to launch this newest product,” said Prescient founder and CEO Paul Niedermann.
“The Prescient AudioCase will bring the highest quality audio possible to people who care about smartphone sound – without awkward external speakers. Literally, the Prescient AudioCase puts high performance audio in the hands of the people. So, we are giving the people an opportunity to lend their hands to its final manufacture.”
In conjunction with Product Development Technologies, Inc. (PDT), a global, full-service product development firm, Prescient Audio has designed one of the most promising, innovative pieces of audio technology for smartphones. A $99 Kickstarter Campaign pledge allows individuals to be among the first to own the Prescient AudioCase, a smartphone case featuring both TrueVoice and ThinDriver technology to enable high quality, high-volume, two-way audio. Kickstarter backing affords a significant discount to the planned retail price of $149.
About ThinDriver™ Technology
The technology that enables such high quality audio in such a thin package began with the most radical loudspeaker design in 90 years: Prescient’s ThinDriver™ TD-12 12” subwoofer. The high-performance, 1000-watt loudspeaker boasts a brilliant repositioning of the components from behind the loudspeaker to its perimeter, resulting in a shockingly thin mounted depth of just 2.25”, the shallowest in the world. The ThinDriver TD-12’s superior sound quality is turning the industry on its ear and was named as an International CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree.
ThinDriver™ technology has now been dramatically scaled down into a Mini ThinDriver™ to be integrated into the Prescient AudioCase, with an active surface area ten times greater than current smartphone speakers, making the first fully integrated audio case for the iPhone 5/5s and Samsung Galaxy S4 with mind-blowing sound quality and volume.
