Encircle Surround Sound Speakers

What if a portable speaker could provide the immersion of full surround sound?

Consumers spend enormous amounts of money every year on sound. Headphones, speakers, home audio, and more. What these have in common is a strive for quality, encompassing audio that transports the user to the center of the music. However, there's always been a compromise; portability vs immersion. Encircle is a concept speaker that combines portability with immersion for an improved and adaptable experience.

This portable speaker can snap apart and form an array of smaller speakers that sync to the same source. They charge when stacked, and are held together by the charging strap.

The dial can be turned to elevate or decease volume, and moved to switch songs or connect to bluetooth.
