Nosediving into the lyrics that make up your favorite song is not a new concept, as people have been doing so since made possible via records’ inner linings. However, with music consumption constantly progressing, it only makes sense to craft a way to bask in lyrical appreciation that’s built for the streaming age. Cotodama has been providing that for quite some time now by way of its innovative Lyric Speaker, and now the Japanese brand has teamed with fashion label mastermind JAPAN to add some suitable streetwear flair to the Lyric Speaker Box.
The sleek, Wi-Fi-enabled speaker brings words to life via Cotodama’s state-of-the-art Lyric Sync Technology, operating as a built-in engine as an LCD screen plays in the foreground. For the sake of accuracy, the motion graphics blend seamlessly with the song being played, with soothing visuals for calmer songs and dynamic ones for tracks that hit harder. As far as sonic prowess is concerned, the Lyric Speaker Box boasts a 3-inch woofer and 0.75-inch tweeter, ensuring a wide-ranging listening experience.
This is not the first time that the pioneering gadgeteers at Cotodama have collaborated with a notable fashion house, having done so in the past with Saint Laurent and Franck Muller. While these are practically household names in its own right, mastermind JAPAN hails from the same stomping grounds of Cotodama, and the two have managed to pull off what each one set out to: shine a light on “high-level fusion of Japanese quality.”
The joint effort from Cotodama and mastermind JAPAN is merely one sign of technological progression continuing to look presentable. The brands’ special-edition Lyric Speaker Box retails for $2,075 and is available at a number of outlets, including END. Clothing.
