PROTOTYPE

I’ve used many cases in my time as a blogger and smartphone user. Everything from a simple bumper to a heavy duty waterproof/dustproof case. I’ve even used a decent amount of power cases. But Prescient Audio is making something just a bit different from what I’ve ever used before. The AudioCase is not only a protective case and extra battery. It also houses a premium speaker inside which Prescient Audio is saying will deliver high quality sound. It’s really a neat concept and one we hope can deliver. Check out the video below.

Prescient™ AudioCase™: is a groundbreaking new smartphone case that delivers high quality audio to iPhone 5/5s and Samsung Galaxy S4 users. It is the only solution that will be equipped with CES Innovation Award-winning ThinDriver™ Technology. It multitasks as a striking case and battery backup for your smartphone while delivering the heart-thumping, crystal clear audio performance you crave.

The Prescient AudioCase has been developed through the working prototype level, and we must now fine tune the development of the Prescient Mini ThinDriver™, the thumping heart and special soul of the product.  It is the Mini ThinDriver™ that with delivers the incredible audio to music fans, video watchers and conference callers, alike.  Finally high quality smartphone video is paired with high quality smartphone audio!

What is ThinDriver™ Technology?

It began with Prescient’s first product: the amazing ThinDriver™ TD-12, a super-thin 12 inch subwoofer, the most radical loudspeaker design in 90 years. The high-performance, 1000 Watt loudspeaker boasts a brilliant re-positioning of the components from behind the loudspeaker to its perimeter frame, resulting in a mounting depth of 2.25”, the shallowest available and an incredibly light weight of only 8 Lbs, delivering amazing audio depth and clarity. A typical 1000 Watt driver is 10″ deep and weighs 40 Lbs!

The superior sound quality is turning the industry on its ear and was named as an International CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree.

We dramatically scaled down TD-12’s patent-pending technology to produce the Mini ThinDriver™, which provides 10 times more surface area than any existing smartphone audio speaker!

The Mini ThinDriver will be integrated into the Prescient AudioCase, the first of its kind, delivering mind-blowing sound quality and volume.

Prove it to me!

The Sound of the Human Voice-Mini ThinDriver™ Technology is designed to deliver enhanced audio and the full frequencies of the human voice are missing from current portable electronic device audio speakers.

A voice frequency or voice band is one of the frequencies, within part of the audio range, that is used for the transmission of speech.  In telephony, the usable voice frequency band ranges form approximately 300 Hz to 3400 Hz. Typically smartphones only play frequencies above 700 Hz.  The voiced speech of a typical adult male will have a base frequency of 85 to 180 Hz, and a typical adult female from 165 to 255 Hz. A typical child ranges from 255 Hz to 500 Hz.  Thus, the fundamental frequency of most speech fall below the bottom of the “voice frequency” band an dwell below typical smartphone speakers.  However, enough of the harmonic series will be represent from the missing fundamental to create the impression of hearing the fundamental tone.

In other words you have never heard the real voices of family, friends, or others on a smartphone – but you can on the Prescient AudioCase. And, everything else will sound infinitely better, too, like music, of course.

We ran some tests, represented by the graph below, which show how a Prescient AudioCase (yellow line) will deliver more volume (higher db / frequencies) and better audio quality (a flatter and more detailed line on average) than the typical smartphone (blue line).

Phone: Samsung Galaxy S4 // Our target is a significant and more detailed 20 db improvement in the lower frequency and vocal range.
