Get ready for Graphene-based speakers from Ora: "Advanced nanomaterials for high performance loudspeakers" ORA brings the exciting properties of Graphene to the audio industry. Due to the high stiffness & low weight of Graphene, our drivers not only sound better, they can be made smaller, lighter & more energy efficient. Ora's technology is compatible with current speaker designs & competitively priced. Graphene is the strongest material known to (wo)man, 25 times stronger and 200x times stiffer than steel, it is also 4 times lighter. We use the amazing properties of graphene in our proprietary nanocomposite formulation to build unique, high performance loudspeaker membranes. We provide audiophile quality sound from smaller, more efficient loudspeakers. From cellphones to rock concerts, ORA will revolutionize how we listen. http://www.ora-sound.com/
