Zeppy is claimed to be one of the most durable speakers on the market, featuring an ability to withstand drops from up to 1 meter without internal damage. Dents and scratches on the membrane won’t affect its performance. This makes it a great choice for those with young kids or people who are always on-the-go.

Zeppy’s Progress

Rafael Kubisz, the production manager at Zeppy, was never a big fan of headphones and has been searching for alternative for many years.  He wanted to create an open, free sound field that didn’t bother anyone around him and didn’t isolate him at the same time. The solution came with the discovery of a material that had all the qualities he needed for Zeppy.

The company was founded in May 2018 after a crowdfunding campaign last year and they are continually developing new products. They currently offer four distinct styles of Zeppys, which run for 199 euros.
