Monolith x Aluminum

Designed & engineered in Sweden

"The challenge once again has been to strip away all that is unnecessary. Countless hours were devoted solely to achieving the perfect symmetry in the positioning of the drivers. There are no logos, no frills - only the sleek yet refined appearance of solid aluminum remains. Timelessness is paramount to me."

-Daniel Alm

From an idea born of the desire to bring the immersive sound experience of the Monolith to an ultra compact format and to offer our cutting-edge technology to a wider audience, we are now launching the Monolith Aluminum. Crafted with precision by our dedicated team at Nocs, the Monolith Aluminum embodies a harmonious blend of minimalist design, audio excellence, and environmental responsibility.


In detail

The Monolith Aluminum embodies a significant advancement in innovation, offering the revered Nocs signature sound in a portable and eco-conscious design. CNC-machined from a single block of aluminum, then meticulously sandblasted and anodized, every aspect of its creation reflects our unwavering dedication to environmental responsibility.

In our pursuit of perfection, we have worked tirelessly to refine the Monolith Aluminum, ensuring that every detail contributes to its exceptional sound quality. Under the guidance of our founder, Daniel Alm, our team meticulously tunes the Monolith Aluminum in our in-house Lab in Lund, Sweden. After sessions of listening tests and measurements, the tuning is set, ready to be implemented in mass production, ensuring a balanced and immersive auditory experience.

All parts of the Monolith Aluminum are replaceable, with the mindset of offering a cradle-to-cradle consumer product.

Nocs studio sound - like the artist intended

Our journey with artists and DJs has been a profound learning experience, shaping our understanding of sound tuning in unprecedented ways. Each musician brings a unique perspective to the listening experience, and our role as speaker designers is to honor their vision.

At the Nocs Lab, our collaboration with the music community is at the heart of our audio development process. We value the insights shared by artists and DJs, as they guide us in fine-tuning the speaker experience to preserve the authenticity of their craft.

With every iteration, we refine our tuning techniques, drawing from the wealth of knowledge gained through our partnerships with musicians. Premium components further enhance our ability to deliver unparalleled sound quality, empowering listeners to immerse themselves fully in the music.

This collaborative approach not only ensures the highest-quality sound but also fosters a deep connection between the artist and the audience. At Nocs, we are committed to elevating the listening experience, one speaker at a time.
