(Palo Alto, CA – June 2, 2010) – Etón, a leading emergency preparedness company and creator of green-powered electronics for everyday adventures, announces Soulra – the new portable, solar-powered sound system for iPod and iPhone. Featuring a large solar panel and a rubberized exterior, the Soulra provides a portable sound solution that you may never have to plug in – providing hours of sound powered by the sun.


As a new self-sustaining sound system on the market, the Soulra provides portability for an on-the-go lifestyle. The Soulra contains a large, high-efficiency solar panel and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that delivers power to charge and play your iPod or iPhone. In addition, the battery charge indicator alerts you when you need to recharge the Soulra in direct sunlight or via an AC outlet.


To provide a solution for all-weather use outdoors, the Soulra has an aluminum and rubberized body providing ultimate durability, while maintaining a modern, sleek design.  Its rugged case is IPX-4 splash proof and the speakers are sealed on the inside – providing protection from sand, water and other outdoor elements.


Soulra’s full-range speaker drivers provide crisp highs, balanced mids and bass-boosted lows.  The Soulra also contains an audio line input for added flexibility.

“There has been a void in the consumer market for a quality, green-powered digital music player and we are excited to make this never-been-seen introduction with the Soulra,” said Esmail Amid-Hozour, CEO of Etón Corporation. “Not only does Soulra offer an unmatched level of performance and technology, but it also comes to market with rugged good looks. Whether you are camping, spending a day at the beach or tailgating – the Soulra will be a mainstay at any outdoors event.”

Available now in black for retail $199, Soulra comes packaged with an AC adapter, remote control and user manual. For more information or to purchase the system, visit
