Portable wireless sound systems have come a long way in recent years, but as small as they've gotten, they still often take awkward shapes. The OWN Personal Speaker is a slick concept that reduces the amplifier down in one dimension, so much so that it can be slipped right into your pocket.
Simon Lauwerier's slim and smart-looking device has a beautiful cork case that hinges open to become a stand. A diamond-textured surface is perforated for perfect sound emission that the user can direct towards his ears. The way that it has been designed makes it ideal for short-range listening; the OWN Personal Speaker will not disturb anyone around you. You can connect it conveniently via bluetooth to your smartphone to play music, and even to amplify your voice conversations.
