K2 Snowboarding Introduces Genesis Pack Featuring Biosonic Technology
The K2 Genesis Pack is a one-of-a-kind backpack with all-new Biosonic Technology. Available this fall, the Genesis provides high-quality sound without the headphones, keeping you in touch with sounds from the outside world.
K2’s Biosonic Technology is a wearable sound interface that uses proprietary Flat-Speaker technology paired with ergonomic placement. The flat speakers are directionally positioned, one on each shoulder strap, for optimal listening. Using the HLT (high linear technology edge structure), a diaphragm with 2 layered voice coils, non-woven air damper and rare-earth magnets, the flat speakers are efficient, low-profile, and water resistant. 4 AA batteries will run the world’s smallest solid state, 1.2 Watt Microamp for up to 6 hours.
Biosonic Technology is easy to use, with a combination on/off and volume switch located on the shoulder strap to control the flat speakers. It’s also convenient – no headphones means no more wires in the way when you need to get in your pack. A hidden music player pocket fits your own popular music source (MP3, CD, Tape).
The pack itself features a removable media sleeve to fit CD’s or discs, a pocket for CD/MP3 remote, padded backpanel and shoulder straps with breathable mesh for comfort, and multiple easy-access organizer pockets. The Genesis is super lightweight, just 2.4lbs., and ultra-durable, utilizing high-quality 420D ripstop/600D/1000D polyester construction.
Lighter than a ghetto-blaster and more convenient than headphones, the K2 Genesis is perfect for anyone who carries a pack and listens to music.
