Think you need a turntable to be a DJ? Urbanears sees things differently and claims that you can mix tracks with what you already have in your pocket—your smartphone! All you need is one wee accessory to make it happen—the Slussen. It is a pocket-sized adapter that comes with an app that enables you to mix your favorite tracks while you’re on the go.
Hidden under a cap attached to a keyring, the Slussen hosts a 3.5mm jack that plugs into the audio port of your iOS gadget. Two audio ports rest on both ends of the U-shape—one that connects to your headphones or earphones, and one that connects to a speaker system.
As mentioned, the device works with an app you must download on iTunes (it’s free!) that lets you mix tracks easily on your iPhone. The app even comes with an equalizer to make sure you get the perfect sound for your mix.
Here are some videos to show you how the Slussen app works:
Urbanears has announced on YouTube that an Android version of the Slussen app is currently in the works.
Slussen comes in four colors—Pumpkin, Grape, Tomato and Petrol—and is available at the Podium, Astrovision, Automatic Center, Avant, Beyond The Box, Bratpack, Buzz, Complex, Digital Hub, Digital Walker, Egghead, Electroworld, Gadgets in Style, Gui, iCenter, iGig, iStudio, Mobile 1, Power Hub, Power Mac Center, Republik, ROX, Switch, Technoholics, Toby’s Arena and Urban Athletics.
