Microsoft's Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 are great machines for getting things done. They're equally as good at entertainment. Movies, television shows and games look great on the 1080p resolution spread across the 10.6-inch display found on both machines. Here's a project on Kickstarter that's going to increase your listening experience when watching video or playing games. Want some Ears for your Surface?
Ears for Surface is a new project on Kickstarter that aims to add 10dB of loudness to your listening experience. The Ears are small pieces of silicone that slip onto the corners of the Surface. They work by directing and focusing the sound from the speakers forward, towards you.
These little pieces of silicone are designed to work with the Surface RT, Surface 2, Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2. Right now the early bird pricing of $5 to get a paid on Kickstarter has sold out. You can pledge $10 to get a pair of Ears for Surface if you want. There are of course pricing tiers that increase in the amount you need to contribute, but you get extra perks as you move up the ladder.
Ears for Surface come in a variety of colors and even include the colors to match your Type or Touch Cover. You've got cyan, magenta, orange, white, purple, black and green to choose from.
Anyone thinking of picking up Ears for Surface? While they certainly won't beat a pair of wireless speakers or headphones, they could be a very good way to increase the volume for your kids without damanging their ears. Anyways, let us know what you think!
