The Sonic Chair can be best described as a surround sound speaker with a seating area. The Chair has input jacks, so you can connect your iPod, laptop or favorite gaming console, letting you feel the sound in your own little world. The nicest part of the chair is the two-way acoustic insulation which acts a barrier between listeners and the people around you. The company states
“despite the open design, the sonic chair”s background noises will not affect the enjoyment
of music in the sonic chair, and “what the listener chooses to hear is hardly audible beyond the chair.”
The sonic chair provides a unique audio experience, allowing you to sit at the very centre of a sound system. Whether you enjoy listening to symphony orchestras, rock concerts, or audio books – the precise arrangement of the integrated satellite speakers will provide maximum listening pleasure. The speakers are encased in a carefully crafted body that createssufficient volume for powerful bass tones, while two body-focused sound generators, in the seat and the backrest, further augment the lower frequencies – recreating the feeling of a live performance.
