This article was published on: May 3, 2013

When you think of speakers, do you picture large, cumbersome devices? What if there was a speaker that was not only portable but also a complete sound system? Meet Tiptop, a revolutionary speaker that redefines what a portable sound system can be.

Created by three Stanford University students, the Tiptop speaker serves as both a portable speaker and an integrated sound system. It’s designed to be user-friendly and versatile.

This innovative speaker is Bluetooth-enabled, allowing seamless connectivity with any Bluetooth-compatible device. Right out of the box, Tiptop is ready to go – no wires, no buttons, just pure convenience. You can control the volume directly from your device.

The design of Tiptop is space-efficient, making it perfect for modern living spaces. Unlike traditional speakers that sit on tables or floors, Tiptop is designed to optimize unused space—specifically, the corners of your walls. Simply mount it using its magnetic system.

Various Uses of Tiptop

The mount comes with built-in magnets, allowing you to easily attach the Tiptop speaker. The magnetic mount also serves a dual purpose—you can hang your keys on it when you take your Tiptop out for portable use.
