The range versatility ensures that hearO speakers will be regarded not just as tennis-inspired novelty items, but as conversation pieces. hearO was developed in collaboration with the Innov8 Group, a Paris-based atelier with a vision that technology becomes lifestyle.

The tennis ball serves as a protective skin for hearO’s electronics. The rubber inside the tennis ball absorbs excess vibration and enhances audio clarity. The speaker’s grill pattern is a Fibonacci spiral sequence that enables optimal sound projection without sacrificing strength or appearance. The one- button speaker rests on a charging cradle with a 360-degree magnetic connection. Once fully charged, a mobile hearO can stream wireless audio continuously for up to 5 hours.
