With the technology that goes into smart phones, it is hard to find a fault in them. After all, they are capable of replacing many gadgets that used to require a purse or backpack to fill. The cameras that they come with now are extremely tiny, and much different from that of an old 1 megapixel camera that was the size of a small brick. Even as a video player, they can deliver high quality video in such a small area using a wireless connection. With ports from anything from speakers to USB cables, it is hard to find something that a phone today cannot do well.
I think there is one fault that we can all agree on, and that is sound. Sure, every smartphone out there can play much through its speakers – but unlike the rest of the technology that has been shrunken down, speakers cannot. To …

For car audio, bass would be looked at much different than inside of a producer’s studio

My guess is that it has been quite a while since any brand has attempted to sell clothing with speakers installed in them. Even if these were some decent quality speakers from a reputable speaker company, many would never take them seriously – including me. I’ve seen maybe 2 instances where this idea was partially successful, and one of them was when the speakers were embedded inside of a backpack. The only issue with the backpack came from the fact that it had a hard time performing “backpack” duties; the speakers and amp took up too much space in the top of the pack.
If this idea could be executed again, but with 100% of the effort being put towards sound quality (and skipping the backpack idea), it might just work. This is what …
