HiFi-Skyn iPhone case adds better sound and more power

Audiophiles who use an iPhone will want to check out the new CEntrance HiFi-Skyn sound system that is designed to fit inside a rather bulky iPhone case. In addition to offering some protection for the iPhone, the case is also designed to bring audiophile quality audio. The case also has an internal battery to help your iPhone run longer and features a built-in headphone amp.

The designers of the iPhone case say that it will allow audiophiles to leave their higher end audio players at home and carry one device that works for music and communication. The biggest downside to the HiFi-Skyn is that it adds a lot of bulk to your iPhone.

The case appears to be about a third longer than the iPhone itself. Its internal battery is good for up to ten hours of use per charge. HiFi-Skyn supports asynchronous digital streaming and mastering-level sound up to 24-bit/192 kHz resolution. The device supports DSD audio as well.

The HiFi-Skyn is on Indiegogo seeking $12,000 and has raised over $16,000 with 43 days to go. A pledge of $174 or more will get you one of the Skyn cases with an estimated shipping date of March 2015.
