If you are a Surface tablet owner, you might have definitely hoped for a better speakers/sound experience from Microsoft. It is more of a hardware and design, so you can’t Microsoft to fix it via any upcoming Windows update. There is a simple accessory solution called Ears that allows you to increase the low volume levels on the Surface tablets. They don’t require wires, a power source or batteries.
The Ears for Surface tablet are small silicone pieces that slip over the top corners of your Surface RT/2 or Pro/2. They cover the speakers and redirect the sound to the front. Thereby, you get an increase in 10dB loudness and clearer sound when listening to music or watching movies.
When the Surface first came out, the max sound level was very low. Many people complained about it, and Microsoft updated the Surfaces to make them louder, but not much. Ears make up for the fact that the speakers on the Surface are not facing you. They work by simply redirecting the sound without using a power source.
Ears are small, lightweight, and won’t interfere with use of the Surface. If you bump or move the Surface, or even hold it upside down; they won’t fall off. You can put them in your pocket or put them in your Surface’s bag as they take little room. They are a convenient way to increase the sound of your Surface.
The project is on Kickstarter now. The early bird offer of getting Surface Ears for just $5 is over now. Hurry now to get it for $10!
