PORTLAND, ORE.

The Zooka is now available at Walmart stores nationwide.

“From conception to execution, or as we like to call it, sketch to shelves, our team grabbed the attention of America’s top retailer, Walmart, in only 15 months.  That’s a remarkably short time period for any company to create, produce and sell a product at this level,” says Jason Martin, co-founder and chief creative officer of Carbon Audio. “It’s been an incredible ride since our debut in Apple stores, and we are excited to see what’s next.”

Zooka is a wireless speaker designed to be as mobile as your media. With a 30-foot Bluetooth range, multiple vibrant colors, and a low price point there are more than a few reasons for you to listen “LOUDERER” with Zooka.

About Carbon Audio

Carbon Audio is a non-traditional and highly innovative audio company that launched in early 2012 in Portland, OR. After a successful fundraising campaign on Kickstarter.com, they released their first product called Zooka: a Bluetooth® tablet speaker that has since received the prestigious Red Dot award for its unique functional design and is now distributed and sold on a worldwide stage ranging from Apple stores to Walmart.

Carbon Audio was originally formed by a like-minded group of music lovers who saw traditional audio products in a different way – a way that solved true consumer problems rather than simply creating products that followed the competition. Their products are inspired by the true mobile lifestyle of the 21st century – a lifestyle that understands that being loud is more than just making a sound, it’s about making a statement. Loud is bolder, brighter, and more fun, which is why Carbon Audio’s increasingly mobile products will ensure that you can live out loud wherever you and your media want to go.
