[GIVEAWAY] SoundJaw Makes your iPad 2 Louder?
SoundJaw is a one-man operation based out of the US. The SoundJaw is built to re-direct the muffled sound towards you for a more crisp sound.
In order to use this nifty little device, your iPad must not have a case around it (although it does work with Apple's Smart Cover). It is easy to attach and remove, and made out of hard plastic which won't hurt your iPad. It sticks out a little less than an inch from the bottom.
After using this, we had a hard time noticing any difference. With the volume quite low there was a definite improvement in clarity, but we were unable to get that boost of volume we were hoping for and have seen with heftier solutions like Griffin's AirCurve.
Their website is an iWeb standard with a PayPal purchase button that sells SoundJaws at $12.99 plus $4.99 shipping/handling. We've got a couple to give away as well - comment below and we'll pick a winner over the weekend to ship to!

Thats pretty cool, I use a small cardboard piece to kinda do the same thing. It does make a difference directing the sound to the front

I use the smart cover to redirect the sound, not too bad too.

Great idea and wish I had thought of it. I always "cup" my hands on my ipad and iphone to do sort of the same thing. Really like this idea.

I saw your original article a few months ago about this. I went to purchase one but they were on pre-order, I might have to splurge now.

I notice you do lose a good bit of audio. If you curve your hand and place in on the speaker, you notice louder volume.

Wheres the iphone version... still would love to try it out on my ipad2.. ;P

I usually cup my hand and notice a difference. Guess the noise goes everywhere.
02-17-2012, 08:03 AM #11
I'd love one! I definitely cup my hand around it anytime I need to listen to music or a video and I don't have my headphones handy.
02-17-2012, 08:06 AM #12
Please send one so I can get some volume in my life...

Would love to have one! And even more experience it =)

Cool idea...would love to try.

I'd love to win this!
It would be a great addition to my dadīs iPad 2
My dad and mom are going to be married for 25 years next month.
Iīd love to give this to my dad, since he always complains that the volume of the iPad 2 isnīt loud enough.

I need bring my iPad to the beach for party this weekend....!
02-17-2012, 08:49 AM #18
this is a smart idea! I've found myself propping my ipad awkwardly against walls and other things nearby to try and bounce the sound. This would definitely come in handy when I don't have anything to prop it against!
02-17-2012, 08:50 AM #19
This would be great, I'd even cut my case if it meant things would actually be louder.
Who puts a speaker on the back of a device, I mean really?!

13 bucks or curve my hand around my iPad? Ok I'll pay up
