Porsche Design has unveiled the Porsche Design Conference Speaker PDS30 – a smart multifunctional device that combines high-quality sound with a functional design. The new conference speaker allows for an intuitive switch between calls and music playback. This hybrid device is an important addition to Porsche Design’s growing audio portfolio.
The divide between the upper and lower housing allows for the speaker’s hybrid functionality. To activate the conference mode, the two layers are turned in opposite directions, opening the speaker and exposing the underlying microphones. Four independent microphones provide 360-degree coverage over a distance of three meters. When the device is closed, the PDS30 functions as a Bluetooth® 5.2 speaker at home or on the road to stream music and podcasts in high quality. All controls are concealed underneath the fabric. The speaker is decorated with engraved Porsche Design logo on top.
The touch control buttons are positioned on the top of the speaker to allow for easy navigation. They control volume change, play/pause (when in speaker mode) as well as accepting, rejecting, ending and muting calls (when in conference mode). A USB-C dongle allows the device to quickly connect to a notebook. The dongle is stored in an easily accessible compartment on the bottom of the speaker. Users may also connect any Bluetooth®-enabled smartphone, tablet or laptop to conduct meetings from anywhere. Additionally, the PDS30 is compatible with any smartphone assistant and can be paired via Bluetooth® to create a broader, fuller audio experience and even better conference call quality. The PDS30 provides up to 12 hours of battery life and is charged via a USB-C port, taking about 3 hours to reach a full charge.
The Porsche Design Conference Speaker PDS30 is now available in Porsche Design stores, specialist retailers, and online, as well as from selected online shops, at an RRP of €329. The speaker is housed in a slim, light carry case that comes with charging cable and adapter (USB-C to USB-A) underneath it. The case is made of high-quality protein leather, durable fabric on the inside and a rubber zipper.
