Samsung 'submarine' speaker system surfaces

Kelp helps make better sound. Apparently

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”.

Bio Kelp produces richer and better clarity sound, apparently

Do we believe Samsung? At the company's IFA stand it was hard to tell, what with a thousand and one other audio firms' wares blaring out.

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. ®
