About this Product

PATENT PENDING: Unfortunately, the only material this should be purchased in is ElastoPlastic, which is not available outside of being a maker material. Also the price is quite high as this service is not a mass-production setting. I am working to make this available via mass-production for significantly cheaper. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A lot of tablets seem to have woefully inadequate speakers, and the Surface Pro by Microsoft is no exception. In a way, the Surface Pro may be a leading offender.

.

The design of the Surface Pro, and most tablets, results in the speakers being deployed around the edges of the device. In the case of the Surface Pro, the sound coming from the side of the speakers is pushed outward and behind. Up to 66% of the sound that comes from the speakers never reaches your ears.

.

With the EARZ for Surface Pro, you have the opportunity to fit two small plastic objects that funnel and direct the sound coming from the speaker straight to you (merely increasing their efficiency). This makes the perceived sound from your Surface Pro speakers 2-3 times louder!

.

It is a cheap alternative to extra bulky speakers requiring Bluetooth or USB dongles to operate.

.

To test this phenomenon yourself, simply locate the speakers on your Surface Pro. They are at the top left and right corners of the tablet. They curve around the corners from the top and extend to the top of the tablet's stand. Now, cup your hands behind these speakers so that the sound is redirected at you. You will immediately notice an impressive difference in the volume and quality of sound, simply with your hands.
