NOTRE DAME, IN – 12/06/2017 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Resonado is pleased to announce the launch of its Mini-O IndieGoGo campaign which gives audiophiles on the go a second chance to meet and own the revolutionary Bluetooth speaker, which has already successfully raised $15,000 via Kickstarter.
Weighing in at just 2.5oz (72g) with up to six hours of playback from an hour’s charge, the credit card-sized Mini-O was made for travelers and music-lovers seeking a sleek, modern design which also delivers unmatched weight-to-sound profile.
The tiny little Bluetooth device packs the most powerful audio punch on the market for a speaker of its size, and it’s all down to the state-of-the-art Flat Magnetic Speaker (FMS) technology which powers it.
The FMS technology does away with the traditional, cone-shaped speaker design, replacing it with a slimline design which delivers an output that outperforms speakers three times bigger.
The FMS technology used in the Mini-O is already familiar to Asian consumers, having made its debut in its native country of Korea and several other markets in the Far East. The Resonado team has worked closely with the patent owner in South Korea for the past two years to build an attractive device for the Western market, and the Mini-O marks the technology’s first steps into the U.S. marketplace.
“There’s nothing else like this on the market right now. For people who are constantly on the go, this is a barely-there speaker that delivers a superb audio experience,” said Peter Moeckel, co-founder of Resonado.
“Whether you’re a backpacker partying on a Greek beach, a digital nomad seeking lightweight, yet powerful speakers, or a business traveler seeking to make a hotel room more relaxing, the Mini-O delivers.”
The funds raised from the combined Kickstarter and IndieGoGo campaigns will be used to raise the initial funding required to purchase raw materials for the mass manufacturing process; with $15,000 already secured, production lines are already in place to bring FMS technology into the pockets of travelers in the United States and beyond.
For digital nomads, backpackers, and other travelers seeking to enjoy music on the road without sacrificing luggage room or sound quality, the Mini-O marks a huge step forward.
The speaker has already received positive reviews in the tech press, with one leading online publication, Digital Trends, noting that the design “means that you can easily slip it into your pocket and take it just about just about anywhere you want to go.”
