18. How does the sound come from the KELOSOUND®product?
The sound comes from the KELOSOUND® product in a way that the wood resonates, vibrates and plays the sound. The wood becomes a speaker, and the sound is played with the help of the wood. By pressing your ear against the KELOSOUND® wood, the sound begins to resonate in the skull bones, taking you to the middle of nature.
19. Can I hear the sounds, if I don’t go close to the wood or hug it?
Yes, you can hear the sound at all times, and the sound comes from the wood in 360 degrees filling the room entirely with the nature sounds. The sound plays from the product without the need for hugging. The hugging and pressing the ear against the product creates a deeper relaxing sound experience, even though it is not necessary. We suggest to adjust the volume lower when hugging the wood.
20. How does the KELOSOUND® product work?
The KELOSOUND® products work together with the mobile application with which you can control the sounds. The products will work with a Wi-Fi connection.
21. How is KELOSOUND® different from a normal Bluetooth speaker?
The KELOSOUND® product is not a normal speaker, because the wood resonates and becomes a speaker. When you press your ear against the wood, the sound will also start to resonate in the skull bones, and will take you to the middle of nature. The sounds will be played from the wood through Wi-Fi with a mobile application. Therefore, we also offer the sound content to the product as a service. The product is also a huggable and relaxing well-being device. It is also a design product, and a beautiful element as part of the interior design. We will bring a piece of nature to an inside space and closer to people.
22. How is the price of the KELOSOUND®product formed?
The KELOSOUND® products are fully made as handicraft in Finland. The wood pieces are all unique and approximately 250-500 years old pieces of kelo wood (naturally dried wood, which takes a minimum of 120 years for a pine tree to die and become kelo wood), which will be chosen individually to become the product. The products also include a new kind of sound technology developed by Kelosound Oy, based on which the product and the sound service works. The sounds have been recorded by sound artist Kirsi Ihalainen around Finland’s wilderness during several years.
23. Can I buy only the sounds or the mobile application with sounds without the KELOSOUND® product?
The sounds or the mobile application only can not be bought as separate from the KELOSOUND® product. The mobile application with the sounds always comes with the KELOSOUND® or SAUNASOUND®product.
24. How can I order SAUNASOUND®?
Please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill the offer form, (Linkki tänne: kelosoud.com/saunasound) if you are interested in purchasing SAUNASOUND®. We will need details about the customisation of the product, including a possible on-site installation, in order to make an offer. The offers will be negotiated individually.
25. How does the price of the SAUNASOUND®sound system form?
The pricing of the SAUNASOUND® sound system is dependent on the size of the sauna and the sound content coming to the space.
26. How can I order a bigger amount of KELOSOUND® products to my company?
At the moment, it is possible to order a maximum of five (5) pieces of each model of the different KELOSOUND® products in our webshop at a time.
