When designing Robin, the team wanted to create a phone that people loved listening to music on. The dual, front-facing speakers are loud and crisp, and one of the many reasons why we enjoy it. And, since we’re always testing our device for audio quality, you can always hear SOMETHING playing in our office!

 

Recently, we partnered with AiAiAi, an audio design company based in Denmark dedicated to developing high-quality headsets, to create a one-of-a-kind product we thought you would love. When the collaboration began, AIAIAI also selected a couple of renowned DJs they sponsor to work with us. As part of the project, they were asked to create unique ringtones with the design ethos of AIAIAI and Nextbit in mind.

 

About Lauren Lo Sung

When Lauren was younger, her older siblings would blast music that would influence her immensely. At 11, she convinced her parents to buy her beginner decks and now, the Liverpool native is working with famous DJs across the globe. She’s known for her dub techno sound, and according to Decoded Magazine, ‘weaves a heady mixture of warm sonics and complex layers of sound which wrap her audiences in a cozy blanket of happiness and joy.’ Check out Lauren's song "On My Mind" from her SoundCloud page:

Awesome @Khang! Nextbit is branching out and making sound related products and making the Robin sound even better- my dream is coming true! Smiley Happy. For me, Avicii and the Chainsmokers have been my favorites! Definitely gonna check out the songs on SoundCloud soon Smiley Happy

 

EDIT: Oh my goodness, both songs are absolutely sick!

These are soooo good!  It makes me excited to be involved (even just as a fan)with a company that can see their product as something more than just a device. Looking forward to what other collabs come down the road!
