LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 – The biggest problem I have with my iPad is the speaker volume. Every time I try to watch a movie or TV show, I have to cup my hand around the bottom by the speaker. I feel like an old codger in reverse: cupping my hand around my iPad instead of my ear.
Here at the Consumer Electronics Show, Kubxlab is showing off an iPhone case that works really well at boosting volume acoustically.
The Ampjacket is a silicon case with an acoustic chamber on the back that boosts the speakers’ volume conch shell-like. Even in a noisy show hall, it worked really well. Kubxlab claims it doubles the volume.
The iPhone 5 case is available now for $35; an iPad and iPad mini version is promised soon.
