"The public response to the 1Q has been simply amazing," says David Laituri, founder of Vers and designer of 1Q. "We've gotten praise for the idea, as well as some good insights on improvement." Support is accelerating.
The Vers 1Q is a powerful, compact 3" cube sound system that works wirelessly with any phone, tablet or laptop via Bluetooth 2.1. It is the newest in Vers' line up of audio components, which include wood sound systems (Vers 1.5R), cases (for iPhone, Touch and iPad) and earphones (1E and 7E). The 1Q speaker is designed for a mobile media world, with serious thought toward design, sound quality and use of natural, renewable materials.
"Like all of our products," says Laituri, "the 1Q line was created with a passion for performance, beauty and sustainability. Wood is simply the best material for sound reproduction – it's rigid, allowing the music to be heard as intended, but provides a natural warmth to the music not possible with plastic."
For each tree used in production, 100 are re-planted through Vers' partnership with The Arbor Day Foundation and U.S. Forestry Service. Use a tree – plant a forest. "We're excited to be able to go beyond achieving sustainability, helping to restore the environment where it's needed most," says Laituri.
