Competition: we're giving readers the chance to win a pair of portable wireless speakers by Stockholm studio Nocs (+ slideshow).
Congratulations to the winner! Agnes Gidenstam from Sweden won a pair of Nocs speakers.
Nocs integrated the speakers with AirPlay technology that allows users to stream music from a Mac, PC, iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad without the use of cables.
AirPlay is able to stream to multiple sets of speakers so music can be played in each room that contains a pair of NS2 Air Monitors.
With Kevlar-reinforced woofers and silk dome tweeters, the speakers are coated in rubber for durability and come in red, orange, yellow, grey, black or white. Competition entrants can chose their preferred colour.
This competition is now closed.
The winner will be selected at random and notified by email. Winners’ names will be published in a future edition of our Dezeen Mail newsletter and at the top of this page. Dezeen competitions are international and entries are accepted from readers in any country.
Here is some additional information from Nocs:
Nocs’ new NS2 Air Monitors are a set of Active speakers boasting AirPlay technology, allowing you to stream music wirelessly from your Mac, PC, iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad. Tap into the NS2’s powerful sound and turn your device into the ultimate music experience!
Finally – speakers that sound as good as they look. Fire up the NS2 and let their powerful, precise output turn your smart device/cpu into a musical juggernaut. The NS2’s deep, accurate bass, accompanied by well-balanced mids and crystal-clear highs, creates a rich, natural sound that will liven up any room in your home.
Materials and design
Designed in Stockholm, where mastery of contemporary minimalism is the norm, the NS2 look great wherever you put them. Each component, from the hand-crafted/rubber-coated cabinets to the Kevlar-reinforced woofers and silk dome tweeters, has been carefully designed to offer an exceptional blend of sound and durability.
The NS2 is fully integrated with AirPlay wireless technology, meaning you can wirelessly stream music throughout your entire house. Enjoy your complete music library -- every song, every playlist -- in any room, at any time!
If the NS2 had a motto, it would be “hear everywhere at once.” For instance, say you have one set of speakers in your bedroom, another in your office, and a third in your living room. With the NS2, you can turn your lair into a formidable “house of sound” by streaming your music to multiple rooms simultaneously, thus guaranteeing that you’ll never miss a beat no matter where in the house you are. Just choose “Multiple Speakers” from the AirPlay menu in iTunes – then sit back and prepare to be have your house (and your world) rocked.
