I created the AudioGlove for folks like me who wanted to use their iPhone the way in which it was intended – to be able to talk on the phone while multi-tasking hands-free or while using other apps like email, Google Maps or browsing the web!
PORTLAND, OR (PRWEB) August 15, 2012
An innovative, unique new iPhone case has been introduced on the Kickstarter.com crowdfunding website. The AudioGlove iPhone case is a sleek polycarbonate protective case that uses smart-design and patented Natural Sound Amplification™ technology to dramatically increase the iPhone’s volume – by 20% – and improve the performance of its microphone.
Part technical wonder, part fashion statement, the AudioGlove features a waveguide chamber that slides open to amplify and redirect the iPhone’s sound waves coming both out of its speaker and into its microphone. Now, with the AudioGlove, iPhone users can use their device to truly share their music, video and games anywhere – at a party, the mall or the park – without having to sacrifice audio quality or drain battery power.
Falco Freeman, a Portland entrepreneur, invented the AudioGlove. “I was always frustrated with my iPhone’s speakerphone,” says Freeman. “So I created the AudioGlove for folks like me who wanted to use their iPhone the way in which it was intended – to be able to talk on the phone while multi-tasking hands-free or while using other apps like email, Google Maps or browsing the web!”
The AudioGlove alone will retail for $35, but as part of the Kickstarter campaign, backers will receive a case for pledges as low as $20. The case comes in black, white, pink, purple, green, and yellow. Because it is in two parts, consumers can customize their case by mixing and matching color combinations.

“I think we have a game-changing product in the AudioGlove. But it’s tough for the ‘little guy’ to get a foothold in the market. That’s why we think this is a perfect Kickstarter project, where you have people who are passionate about good design, the performance of their gadgets, and want to support cool products.”
The campaign funding goal is to reach $30,000 by September 3rd; if successful, the proceeds will be used to defray the cost of the die-cast mold and final production of the matching AudioGlove solid aluminum stand, as well as the manufacturing cost of new cases.
