Originally launched in November 2012, the Fench startup known as Whyd offered music bookmarking functionality that let users curate tracks from YouTube, Vimeo, Soundcloud, Dailymotion and various MP3 blogs for later playback. The company has since pivoted to hardware development, and it's now set to launch the new Whyd speaker, featuring a unique wireless design that stands vertically, enclosed in a knitted envelope developed in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Activated by voice control, Whyd delivers the highest-quality sound thanks to a 100mm subwoofer, four full-range drivers, class-D amplifiers and a carefully constructed port tube.
