Sonic-Ear is a simple iPad attachment that makes the device sound appreciably louder. It works by redirecting the sound towards the listener. Since the iPad speaker is on the side, the sound goes out to the right or left instead of towards you. The Sonic-Ear simply get the sound pointed at you. You could cup your hand around the iPad speaker to get a similar effect.
Since it slips onto the iPad, Sonic-Ear can go everywhere the iPad goes. Although a tad odd looking and bulky, the Sonic-Ear can be left on the iPad. It is smart cover compatible and has a pass-thru hole for a charging cable so you don’t have to remove it to charge.
Sonic-Ear is made in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way using a plastic substitute that is derived from plants. This helps to reduce green house gas emissions. Since it is made from carbon-absorbing plants, the Company claims the product is carbon neutral.
Sonic-EAR is made in North America. Unlike plastic injection molded parts, SONIC-Ear is instead made as a single component with a process called 3D printing. It typically takes an hour to make one SONIC-Ear compared to 60 parts that can be made in the same time with injection moulding. It is a more expensive process, however the benefit is a thin, light weight, strong, single contiguous component without seams or screws.
