soundPad for iPadTM

World’s First Flexible Smart Cover for iPadTM With Built-In High Quality Loudspeakers by Atoll.

3 models are available:

  • soundPad Air for iPad Air


  • soundPad Classic for previous iPad generations (2, 3 & 4)

  • soundPad Mini for iPad Mini

All soundPads; Air, Classic and Mini have identical audio specs. Only sizes differ.


Twice As Smart: soundPad is a smart cover WITH a premium Bluetooth loudspeaker system for your iPadTM.

  • Smart cover: soundPad is a smart magnetic protective cover that flips open into a Bluetooth stand-alone speaker system.
  • Loudspeaker: soundPad has 4 built-in, High Quality speakers to deliver a truly premium sound.

We Love iPadTM … Except for the Audio Output

Unfortunately, the iPad has only two very small internal paper speakers reproducing left and right channel audio located together on the bottom-right of the unit.

Both Classic iPadTM and Air have speakers behind a single grill or 2 thin grills for Air model. The maximum sound volume is weak and comes only from one end of the product – not facing the user - flattening not only the audio experience but also jeopardizing the whole immersion into the iPadTM experience.
Moreover when in use, in vertical mode on the lap or in landscape mode either the lap or the hands are covering the grill(s). It is the same when your iPad is sitting on the table: the sound is blocked.



Why Did We Design soundPad? 

To truly enhance your audio experience by:

  • Creating a rich, immersive experience for your iPadTM
  • Taking your listening enjoyment further, providing music and video that sounds more natural and detailed
  • Listening to crisper dialogs
  • Providing a richer sound quality and surround sound effect making you feel like part of the action

soundPad Is The Perfect Companion To Your iPadTM

soundPad is tailor-made to discreetly complement and enhance your iPadTM. Like other smart covers, when you snap the soundPad into place, it wakes up, stands up and brightens up your iPadTM. It magnetically aligns for a perfect fit. When asleep, it hides all its functions, being silent and un-animated. When not a speaker but simply a cover it also matches perfectly with the grand design of iPadTM and protects it.

Acoustics Engineering

No matter if it’s music, movies or games – the sound is astonishingly clear, full and dynamic, and at last, the bass is unmistakably present. Every pitch range sounds natural and balanced.

Meticulously engineered, soundPad has 4 tuned speakers, turning your iPad into a portable entertainment system that has 5 times the sound volume of your iPadTM alone. You boost the intensity of the games you play. You enhance the clarity in movies and conversations. You experience the depth and detail you’re meant to hear in your music.

Beautiful Design


soundPad is simple, inconspicuous, intuitive, functional and elegant 

A Protective Cover on the Go

for iPad Air

For iPad Classic (generations 2, 3 & 4)


For iPad Mini

Designed for true mobility, soundPad is built using durable materials, with a magnetic protective cover that flips open into a Bluetooth stand-alone speaker system. It’s lightweight, built to deliver amazing sound wherever you go but also to protect and serve your iPadTM . The high quality silicone feels amazingly soft and silky and is easy to clean.

soundPad connects to iPad via Bluetooth


Truly Portable

We all hate cables. The speaker wirelessly supports iPadTM of course but also iPhoneTM, iPadTM mini or any other smartphone, tablet or computer via Bluetooth technology.

We paid particular attention to the soundPad battery.soundPad has its own rechargeable high capacity lithium-ion battery so there is no danger of draining your iPad’s power. It will give you up to 10 hours of unplugged playtime. 

A Long Process

In this very small form factor, the main difficulty is obtaining low frequencies (bass). It took us over a year and 16 product evolutions until we found the right ratio. Finally…the breakthrough!

We solved it by:

·  Creating speakers with mini-magnets

·  Having one resonance chamber per audio channel

·  Pairing each audio channel with mini sub-woofer and tweeter

The final result is an audio system with a unique 4-speaker configuration - 2 pairs of speakers - for a fully immersive, uniquely balanced experience.
