The SmartSound case is designed to work in tandem with Apple's Smart Cover, seamlessly interacting with its magnetic detachable cover and automatic sleep/wake function. With SmartSound and Apple Smart Cover working together, the front, back and sides of your iPad 2 will always be fully protected. With built-in audio-boosting abilities, the SmartSound iPad 2 case offers more than just great protection. The unique SoundScoop boosts the volume from your iPad 2 and directs the audio towards you, producing louder, clearer and brighter sound. The SmartSound results in a volume increase of up to 10 dB – doubling the perceived volume of the iPad 2.
