Bass, reinvented!

The Sodapop speaker has been designed to solve the main problem for small portable loudspeakers: They struggle to reproduce low-frequency bass, resulting in a somewhat feeble sound. 


The Sodapop invention solves this problem by connecting the speaker to its own carrying case or any other suitable plastic bottle. This offers a compact portable wireless speaker that provides you with louder music, twice as much bass, and an overall superior sound.

 

DESIGNED IN NORWAY

Reuse & Connect

Connect a regular plastic soda/water bottle with standard threads to double your bass!

Long battery time

Enjoy up to 30 hours of nonstop music with awesome sound and deep bass

Small size!

Travel-friendly speaker that fits everywhere. Use the included bottle as a protective carrying case.

Smart design

Functional & clean Scandinavian design with a playful personality.

Great review of the Sodapop speaker by Lewis over at unboxtherapy.com

Does it work?

Yes, it works! Just by connecting a bottle the Sodapop will increase the bass with 10-decibel! For the human ear, this will sound approximately twice as loud.

In other words, the Sodapop speaker can generate twice as much bass just by connecting an empty bottle to the speaker unit. The effect is striking once you connect the bottle.

How does it work?

1. Sound waves are generated inside the speaker elements by the vibration of a flexible membrane attached to an electromagnet.

2. The air inside the speaker enclosure is pushed into the bottle by the membrane in the speaker elements.

3. The bottle more than triples the physical volume of the Sodapop speaker cabinet, enabling the speaker to push more air internally and as a result, it produces over 10dB louder sound in the low-frequency bass area and improving the overall quality of the audio output.

4. In addition, we have added a passive bass membrane at the bottom of the included bottle, this helps to push the air inside even more and gives the speaker an extra bass boost!

On a regular soda/water bottle, the elastic walls of the bottle itself act as a passive membrane.

 

SODAPOP GIVES YOU LOUD & RICH

SOUND WITH MORE BASS!

We have tested the Sodapop in professional sound labs and the results are exactly what we were aiming for. When connected to a bottle the Sodapop speaker delivers increased sound volume throughout the whole audio spectrum.

This results in the feeling of “warmth” in the bass without loss of definition.

The increased volume is due to the physical characteristics of the bottle and its materials combined with the properties of the Sodapop speaker.

The problem with other small speakers with bass boost (they all use a passive bass membrane inside a very small cabinet), is that they only boost the bass and this makes the music sound boomy and less defined.

Just as the frequency response graph on the illustration under shows, they are unbalanced and lack the richness in the mid-range.

The speakers are tested by playing the speakers at their max volume with the same music tune (typical pop/electronica with lots of bass) for one minute at the same distant (50cm) from the microphone.

The data in the frequency chart is not the peaks but the median pressure at that specific frequency area over 1 minute. This proves that the Sodapop speaker delivers a more dynamic and overall “warmer” feeling in the sound image as the bottle gives the speaker more space to bring more definition to the sound.

Extra bass boost!

The included bass bottle doubles as a protective carrying case for the speaker unit, and it has a built-in passive bass membrane for an additional bass boost. Still, the threads that fasten the bottle is compatible with most regular soda bottles, just about anywhere in the world.
