The Explorer (Pre-Order)
Streaming Enabled HiFi Music Player
In other words, this flask shaped piece of magic makes your music sound ridiculously good.
If you think music just doesn't sound right listening to
MP3s on your phone...you're right.
The Explorer is a portable hifi audio player that puts the feeling back into listening on-the-go. Using state-of-the-art digital audio conversion technology, along with an enormously powerful 300mw amplifier, the Explorer enables you to experience your favorite music in the way the artist intended you to hear it. Crystal clear highs, robust mids and silky smooth bass derived from the world renowned "Burr Brown" DAC chip, combined with enough power to drive even the most demanding of headphones, and run entirely on an open Android 6.0 platform, the Explorer is a HiFi audio player designed to meet the exacting criteria of modern audiophiles. Oh, and just for kicks we have partnered with TIDAL, the worlds premier HiFi music streaming platform, to offer a free 3 month trial subscription with your purchase, enabling you instant access to over 48.5 million songs in lossless quality.

Dedicated to Sound
Since the dawn of the MP3 age, people have become used to bad sound. Most streaming and download services use low-quality MP3 files, and smartphones process audio with cheap audio components chosen for cost rather than quality. The Explorer bucks the trend by using professional-grade audio hardware to recreate a truly lifelike listening experience, revealing intricate details and allowing you to hear your favorite songs in the manner originally intended by the artist.
Step Outside the Box
While most smart phones are designed to be thin, light, and cheap, the Explorer was crafted with sound, design and artistic sensibilities in mind. Its time-tested form factor provides superior ergonomics, curving to fit the shape of your hand and pockets. Each Explorer is truly one of a kind thanks to its sustainable solid hardwood chassis, creating an authentic look and feel that is as timeless as it is modern.
All of Your Music, All the Time
Take all of your music everywhere by loading your library onto the Explorer's ample, expandable internal storage and caching music from streaming services. With the Explorer’s generous 4,000 mAH battery and 264GB of storage (64GB internal, 200GB via microSD), you can listen to your heart's content no matter where life takes you.
