Columbus, OH – August 30, 2016 – OIO, an independent startup and innovator in portable tech products and audio solutions, announces the launch of their flagship product Amp, an ultra-portable iPad speaker case for iPad Air™, iPad Air 2™ and iPad Pro 9.7™. Amp is the only integrated surround sound theater system of this kind with symmetrically positioned right and left channels for a true stereo sound theater experience with your iPad.

“We began working on Amp with the goal to create a unique experience in the crowded field of Bluetooth speakers,” said Gregg Davis, Owner and Founder of OIO. “Our first and foremost focus has always been elevating shared experiences through the devices we love and use every day. And with the iPad, we saw the untapped potential to create a one-of-a-kind personal entertainment hub with Amp.”

Amp’s top of the line stereo sound includes two ultra-low profile electromagnetic exciters, multiple audio codecs (A2dP), and two resin fiber honeycomb acoustic panels that are covered with microfiber optical quality fabric. Its portability makes Amp a great traveling companion bringing high quality entertainment anywhere in a sleek protective case.

The Amp excels at offering:


The lightweight speaker case is compact, highly durable, and versatile. The folding speakers close over the iPad, while the stand folds back behind the case, creating a theater experience that goes anywhere.

Amazing Materials

High quality aluminum speaker frames and stand extend iPad’s elegance and quality.

iPad Integration

Re-think the iPad with Amp’s unique ergonomic design. The iPad Air or Pro clicks into place on the specially designed stand, so the user can sit back, relax and enjoy.

Quality Sound

Remarkable dimension and depth through Amp’s unique Honeycomb speaker design and a built-in amplifier that provides a room-filling surround sound experience.

Wireless Connectivity

Easily paired once, Amp automatically connects again on startup. No iPad? No problem. Amp connects to any Bluetooth enabled smart device.


Consumers can choose from three colors, including classic Asphalt, vibrant Limon and soft Periwinkle.

Battery Life

The 900mAh 7.4v Lithium Ion rechargeable battery provides up to 7+ hours of run time.
