Nomadic Audio takes the route less travelled, and boy, are we impressed!

Bluetooth speakers are all the rage. And unfortunately, taking quite a beating with many an unworthy device coming into the mix. The Nomadic Audio looks to things a bit. Morel’s a very well respected name in audio circles, whether for their reference car speakers and home audio speakers like the flagship Fat Lady. Which explains why they decided to do the unthinkable: Reinvent the humble Bluetooth speaker into a scalable, traveler-focused format. The Nomadic is two things in one. One the one hand, it’s an Aptx enabled high-end portable Bluetooth speaker for traveling audiophiles. Dock the speaker into the Speakcase slash carry-on suitcase, and the acoustic box turns it into a massively powerful big box speaker.

The concept is brilliantly simple, staying true to Morel’s roots. For one, take the Nomadic Audio speaker. Standing aside from small portable devices that artificially boost bass and high frequencies, the Nomadic ensures better sound by going back to the basics. They have included big audio drivers in the device, and around 70% of Nomadic speaker’s surface consists of a  moving membrane of two 4”x 6” woofers along with two 22mm tweeters. Come to the Speakcase, and here things take an interesting turn. When you dock the Nomadic into the suitcase, it operates as a driver in a boxed enclosure. The end result? A fully air generated sound system with the promise of big sound.

And they have made the device scalable as well. With True Wireless System in the mix, you can sync and use two Speakcases at the same time.

Quality sound for every travel experience? The Nomadic has you covered.

The Nomadic Audio is now live on Kickstarter, and doing rather well, with 50 days left in their campaign. Deliveries are expected by August 2018, with the Nomadic Audio and SpeakCase combo set to retail for $699.
