The 'Tone and Tune' Emits Sound on Various Materials

Plenty of speakers give users the ability to customize and tailor settings of a specific sound, but the Tone and Tune offer in-depth control by allowing listeners to tune their music to the vibration frequency of various materials. Instead of passing sound through the air like traditional speakers, the Tone and Tune emits sound by directly vibrating an object in contact with the diaphragm of the speaker.

The Tone and Tune is constructed entirely of concrete and while this may not be to everyone's aesthetic taste, it ensures distortion and unnatural tones are not produced by the device. The sound generated from the speaker will depend on what material it is placed on as it reacts to vibration frequency. This means thickness, density and pattern of the material will all have an effect on the sound the speaker produces.
