LaCie’s Sound² speakers are perfect for ogres, ents and Michael Clarke Duncan. Designed by Neil Poulton, the Sound² kinda look like flattened earphones. Huge flattened earphones.
Each speaker measures 7.87 x 5.51 in. LaCie backs up Poulton’s design with French audio company Cabasse‘s technology. Sound² speakers are equipped with a Class D digital amplifier, magnetic shielding and a peak output of 30 W (15 x 2), as well as Cabasse’s Wide Band ICF Driver with a frequency response of 80Hz – 20kHz. Not that I understand any of that. Here’s more technobabble! Maximum Acoustic Level : 95.5dB@1m! And did you know Signal Processing & Frequency was 16-bit / 48kHz?
The Sound² comes with a power adapter, but if for some reason you don’t want to bring the adapter with you, the speakers can also run off the power that it gets from your computer via the built-in USB cord. You can buy the Sound² at LaCie’s online shop for $100 (USD).
