CASE STUDY: Custom Horn for iPod
Horn is the new HI-MACS hand-made art piece, designed by the renowned Korean architect Shi-hyung Jeon from Jeon Associates in collaboration with the HI-MACS team at LG Hausys.
The design concept delivers a full spectrum of sounds, while aesthetically it reinterprets the line of the sleeve of the traditional "Han-bok" and "Beo-seon" Korean clothes in a contemporary style.
After several technical tests with different materials, HI-MACS was demonstrated to be the optimum choice for the speaker cabinet. This was due to its nonporous features and to the minimal vibrations that the material generates in contact with the speakers. Therefore, HI-MACS helps to drive the vibration of the speaker enclosure and it allows minimal diffraction of sound, with a curved design that generates the purest result from the music. The thermoforming properties of HI-MACS were essential to create the extraordinary smooth curved shape of the Horn. Horn is made especially for iPod devices, and the acoustic material and sweeping curves serve up a stunningly clear, precise listening experience that today's audiophiles are looking for.
