When Pause, a high-end hi-fi store in Stockholm, promise customised sound systems for every wallet. They really mean it!
Sound specialists Pause have teamed up with Swedish advertising agency Åkestam Holst to invent the world’s first business card speakers. Their ingenious Pause Speaker Cards are traditional business cards that can be quickly folded and transformed into tiny acoustic speakers for use with any model of smartphone.
Apparently, these babies deliver a 17% boost in volume when you slip your phone inside them. Better still, no batteries are required to power them.
The Pause business cards are apparently made from 330gsm Plike paper. The cards’ plastic-like, rubbery surface seems to be the secret behind their dual-use as impromptu audio speakers.
Now you can always have a handy mobile speaker system in your pocket, wallet or purse that’s ready to rock ‘n’ roll – or dubstep – in a matter of seconds.
