Our history

We are a team of enthusiasts who wish to offer the best musical experience to our customers by offering them a speaker in their image.

XAVIER VERSTRAETE
FOUNDER

The reasons for this adventure

From a young age, I have been drawn to Hifi. I remember, as a teenager, my first visits to auditoriums and listening rooms in London! And yet, I never considered making it my job.

However, the love of technology led me to training as an engineer and to a professional R&D career in industrial engineering.

So how did this project come about?

I was just looking for a deeper, more complete musical experience.

If sound quality is essential, the time, the place, the conditions are at least, if not more, important. Iris was born from this observation.

Iris is a customizable speaker, decorated and configured according to your tastes. It offers a decoration, a unique light atmosphere and is piloted by gestures.

All of these elements make Iris unique, just like you.

It can only be made for you!

“My claim is not to make the best speaker in the world … But the best speaker for you! “
