IFA We’re all for eco-friendly products here at Register Hardware, but hope Samsung isn’t taking the proverbial with its latest speaker system, which, the company claims, uses materials sourced from the sea.

Samsung's eco-friendly speaker - with Bio Kelp diaphragm

Each speaker features a new diaphragm material called “Bio Kelp”, which Samsung has literally fished from the ocean and stuck into its speakers.

According to Samsung, Bio Kelp works so well as a speaker diaphragm because of the high density of its fibres – which results in better clarity, the firm claimed.

Sammy's “cutting edge bio-technology” also ensures a “warm and delicate sound”.

But if you’re interested in going on a submersive sound experience with Samsung, then the firm’s rolling the speakers out into stores now. ®
