Opus is a passive amplifier & stand for Apple products. There are two halves to Opus: the left side is an acoustic loudspeaker & the right side firmly holds your device in place. The interlocking halves easily snap & stay together using magnets.
Opus â€™compact size makes it easy to bring along nearly anywhere. The clean lines & graceful geometry of Opus make it a sculptural piece both when in use & when not.
Sanjeet, designer of Opus, says:
â€œI was frustrated with my iPad case, it didnâ€™t function properly as a stand. I wanted to create something I wouldnâ€™t have to attach to my iPad at all times & wanted to preserve the smooth look & feel of the iPad. After research into similar products, I found an interesting concept for amplifying sound from the iPads internal speaker. This is where I found white space & started to develop the concept for Opus. There wasnâ€™t a product out there that combined both a stand and a sound amplifier.â€
Speakers on Apple products often project sound down or to the back. This kills the clarity & volume of your music, movies or conversations. Using low tech, proven geometry:Â Opus catches, redirects, enhances & amplifies sound.Â Opus turns the meager sound coming out of an iPad, iPhone or iPod into aÂ room filling resonance.
Opus holds your device firmly in place at anÂ ideal & ergonomic viewing angle. This frees your hands up to dance around (raise the roof, do the dougie), cover your eyes during a scary movie, or have a very animated & gesture filled conversation.

MikeShoutsÂ – “First off, we are most certainly impressed by the accessory when not in use: they kind of looks like the yin-yang thing where two halves come together by the force of magnet, making it one handy ball-like form for easy storage and transportation.“
Kick In ShowÂ –Â “No more toilet paper roll amplifiers for you!“
Yanko DesignÂ -Â “Genius!“
InStashÂ – “You see a lot of products for both iOS and Android-based products that incorporate a speaker into the docking station, but many donâ€™t offer compatibility across multiple devices, and they make extremely poor stands if youâ€™re wanting to actually use your table or smartphone while getting better sound out of the speakers. Enter the Opus Speaker Stand.“
GadgetSinÂ -Â “We have introduced many well-designed stands for iOS devices, but if you need more functions, you may like to check Opus, a universal stand and sound amplifier.“
iPhonenessÂ – “We have covered plenty of attractive iPad and iPhone speakers here in the past. The Opus speaker is pretty neat though.“
GizmodoÂ –Â “So chic and practical“
