Hi, we are Filowz. Thank you for your interest in our project.
We love music, and many of us use smartphones as a source of music. We always have our smartphones with us, wherever we are. But how do we share the music we love?
The Sonomad is a Hi-Fi wireless portable sound system which lets you enjoy and share your music anywhere, anytime with an unmatched combination of performance and portability.

WHAT EXACTLY IS THE SONOMAD?

The Sonomad is:

  • a stereo high-end audio quality speaker
  • 20 hours of nonstop music playing on battery
  • an astonishing powerful acoustic output
  • an extremely user friendly wire free stereo system
  • a unique safe dock compatible with any smartphone
  • designed and made in France


EXTRA PORTABLE PERFORMANCE

Hi-Fi sound quality, huge power and long lasting battery life: the high quality internal components and materials of the Sonomad make it the best sounding and most powerful sound system of its class. And combined with its high capacity optimized battery, the entertainment will go on for hours.


HIGH END DESIGN AND AMAZING ERGONOMICS

The Sonomad is a unique piece of industrial design. Thought and built to be as strong as possible, the Sonomad is truly portable and really convenient to use, thanks to its compact form and its carrying functions (handle and shoulder strap). And if you do not want to carry it, you can easily throw it in your backpack. 

The Sonomad is compatible with any smartphone, computer, tablet, mp3 player…wirelessly connected through Bluetooth, or with a wire via the standard stereo input.

The safe dock is compatible with any smartphone which is less than 3 in (76 mm) wide and 6.2 in (160 mm) high. Let's say that almost all smartphones will fit nicely inside the Sonomad.


GREAT FEATURES

Designed in Paris, the Sonomad brings the 70's back with the latest and best technology of the 21th century. Carry it with the retractable handle or with the included shoulder strap and you are ready to be on the move…musically!

Connect to the Sonomad through Bluetooth and control the speaker from up to 30 feet (10 meters). And if you do not have Bluetooth or just are too far away from the speaker, simply use the standard audio connector.

Recharge your smartphone or your mp3 player through the included USB connector (5V). Since your smartphone battery will probably be empty a long time before the Sonomad gets a low battery, let's share energy and keep the music going!

Connect several Sonomad units together through the audio output to get a bigger, wilder sound. Connect a smartphone to a Sonomad, and just plug in as many Sonomad units as you want!



THE SAFE DOCK

The Sonomad is the only speaker including the universal mount which can protect your smartphone

Insert your smartphone between the grisps.


Turn around the trap.


Use it as a dock at home and as soon as you are on the move or doing outdoor activities, your smartphone is safe. Just need one hand…and your smartphone will not fear water, sand or any accidental fall.






SPECIFICATIONS


Designed and made in France!


Filowz is a French company based in Paris. Funded by Grégoire, a sound engineer who has traveled and lived in Africa for 6 years, where he felt the need for an effective, convenient and reliable portable speaker. Old school Ghetto Blasters are too heavy, not powerful enough and fragile; traditional Hi-Fi systems are expensive, not portable and cable messy.

Filowz gathers a team of professional industrial designer, electronics, acoustics and mechanical engineers, passionate about music and what they do.

Our aim is to bring the best sound quality anywhere at anytime, without any constraint: small size, small weight, small price, big sound, huge power, long lasting battery life.


WHAT YOU CAN HELP US DO

After 2 years and more than $70k of research and development, we are more than happy to introduce the Sonomad. But the trip isn't over yet. To bring this kind of industrial product to a market, we need to build injection molding tools, get certifications and have a minimum order quantity.
The funds we get from this Indiegogo campaign are for the following:

  • $40,000 for injection molding tools
  • $20,000 for global certifications
  • $35,000 for first production run




WHAT YOU GET

By supporting Filowz and the Sonomad, you will not only get one of the best portable sound systems but you will also be part of a great entrepreneurial adventure. You have the opportunity to support a young and innovative team of passionate people who want to improve our music experience and to keep making its products in France. For that, we need YOU to be part of our project.
