Just say no to plastic. We use FSC certified solid walnut as the enclosure for the PWS, both for its acoustic and visual properties. Wood, simply stated, sounds better, delivering a warmer, natural sound. The unique grain patterns on each PWS literally make every single unit one of a kind, no two will ever be alike, which is why using solid wood is so much fun.
From the sound board to the speaker. Leveraging the professional sound tools of MaxxAudio® (created by Waves a recipient of a Technical GRAMMY Award®) which is found in many famous mixing boards, the PWS delivers music as it was intended to sound. No games or artificial enhancements, just the sweet sounds as they were meant to be heard. We also include both Apt-X and AAC to ensure the highest quality audio standards.
We love things we want to touch and hold, and we know you will too. We’ve separated ourselves from the pack even further with the simple, elegant and timeless design of the PWS. It looks simple because it should be beautiful and easy to use, and that’s what it is.
but don't just take our word for it...
From The Pros
"...a depth and clarity that makes plastic competitors sound, yes, plastic"
- Wall Street Journal (The Off Duty Fall 50, Product #45)
"A gorgeous, one-of-a-kind BlueTooth speaker for $249? Don’t mind if I do."
-The New York Times
"...it's refreshing to see a speaker as refined and as beautiful as the $250 Grain Audio PWS."
- Wired Magazine (Things We Love: The Gear and Gadgets We Couldn’t Live Without This Summer)
"The PWS has a great sound, and it’s a noticeably classier speaker than most Bluetooth speakers we see..."
-Cult of Mac
"And when we put their Packable Wireless System to the test... the small speaker impressed us with its clarity of sound and simple, unassuming exterior."
"Perhaps our favorite of the devices we sampled, think of the Grain Audio PWS as the indie darling of Bluetooth speakers...This speaker’s solid walnut wood paneling is classy as hell, and because the wood contains natural variations, no two units are the same."
