Big family? Different tastes. You might want to watch a Marvel series, she might like to watch NatGeo shows and the kids are too small to watch anything – they need quiet time for sleep and rest. Hub by Ekko is a sleek gadget ready to help you manage that situation without sacrificing anyone’s free time.
The Kickstarter project promises a multi-room listening experience when you connect the multiple Wi-Fi, Hi-Fi sound pucks to speakers. When you share the audio instantly using earbuds or headphones, you simply get a personalized audio experience. The HUB is a charghing dock for 4+ puck receivers. You grab one, connect your earbud to it and personalize audio settings from it such as volume control.
It comes with a smartphone app that gives you more control over the device. From there, you can set volume safety limits for kids, manage security options and tune equalizer settings. As for battery, expect about 5 hours of uninterrupted high-quality sound, enough to watch 2 movies or half a season of a TV show.
The price for this #objectmagic starts with $159 if you order as quickly as possible. Earliest delivery date is set in June 2017.
