PERI Creates New Category for Smartphone Accessories with the PERI Duo
First-of-its-Kind Charging Case + Hi-Def Bluetooth/Wi-Fi Enabled Speakers Debuts on Indiegogo
No mobile accessory on the market today solves the two greatest needs of every smartphone user – more battery power and amplified sound – until now. Today, PERI announced the PERI Duo, a first-of-its-kind case that integrates a hi-def, high-power speaker system and a 2500mAh battery. The Duo creates an immersive audio experience loud enough to fill any room, while also providing more than a full charge to your smartphone.
“This is the case everyone with a smartphone has been waiting for,” said Michael Hsu, cofounder, PERI. “The Duo solves the core general limitations of mobile speakers and phone battery capacity. Consumers don’t need to spend $100 plus on a battery case and then another $200 plus on a portable wireless speaker. Through innovation and technology integration, we’ve developed a charging solution and a hi-def portable speaker system in a slim design, creating an entirely new category within the mobile accessory marketplace.”
While development of the Duo is scheduled to support iOS and Android-based phones, the company intends to develop its first Duo case for the iPhone® 5/5s and iPhone 6. Interested supporters of the Duo can now visit its Indiegogo campaign, where Duo inclusive rewards start at $79.
The Duo has a patent-pending one-piece design for fast/easy phone-to-case coupling, and will be available in four premium color combinations: Black/Silver, White/Gold, Red/Black and a special edition Black/Black (via Rhymesayers Entertainment). Key benefits of the Duo include:
- Dual Purpose – Functions as a standalone Bluetooth or Wi-Fi portable speaker or encase your iPhone for on-the-go listening and added charge.
- Rich, Full Audio Experience – With an integrated hi-res DAC (digital-to-analog converter) and fully programmable single-chip audio DSP, the PERI Duo offers true EQ (equalization) settings through the embedded DSP firmware using the PERI Audio App.
- Multicast Your Music – Can be configured to multicast music with multiple PERI Duo cases through peer-to-peer Wi-Fi connectivity, creating a custom audio experience. Suitable for playing in surround sound mode, conference calling, party mode and creating other amazing sound experiences.
- Power On-the-Go – Boasting a 2500mAh battery, users will receive an additional 130-160 percent battery, translating into 12-17 hours of talk time or 4-6 hours of continuous playback depending on volume setting.
- Clear Conference Calling – Integrated microphone ensuring the clarity and crispness of voices.
