Description & Specs

Introducing OB–4, the portable high fidelity loudspeaker with two 4'' bass drivers and a pair of neodymium tweeters that deliver crystal clear, open natural sound with 38 watts per channel — that's around 100 decibels of incredible sounding stereo. Listen using line input, bluetooth, FM radio and disk. The interface is minimal, with only the things you really need, yet if you look below the surface, there's a lot more than meets the eye. 

What's all the hocus pocus about?
have you ever wished you could instantly rewind when listening to the radio, to hear the title of the song just played? OB–4 continuously memorizes everything you listen to on an endless looping tape. Rewind, time-bend and loop at the flick of your fingertips. on purpose or by accident. Instant rewind on radio is just one of the OB-4's magic tricks.

Natural Sound
four tailor-engineered speaker elements deliver pure quality sound and a stereo field that fills the entire room. a flow-optimised bass reflex duct delivers deep natural bass.

72 hrs Listening
How about normal radio listening for a week without charging? The high capacity lipo battery delivers about 8 hours of noise at max volume, or an average of 40 hours on a single charge. 

The Wireless Part
The OB–4 hardware platform supports both high-definition bluetooth classic and bluetooth low energy standards. Works with ortho remote for wireless volume control. 

Smart Antenna
We've spent years fiddling with the antenna so you won't have to. and for those tricky listening places, we've included a fine-tuned smart spiral antenna that neatly integrates in the handle. 

Motorized User Interface
Use your fingers to grab, spin and interact with the sound. Digital-motion controlled volume knob and tape reel. We call it the next level of user experience.

Turn your mind on with disk mode.
If you skip the traditional inputs like line in, bluetooth and FM radio, you end up in disk mode. This is where we will continuously develop new experimental features for the OB–4. It's our public research space, where we allow ourselves to explore and prototype everything that this media-instrument, as we like to call it, can become. For now, there are three functions on the disk; ambient, karma and metronome.

The Handle-Stand
Designed to be played outdoors, in public spaces and at high volume; carried on one shoulder with speaker elements facing the head. Note: it is assumed that passers-by share the same musical taste. Or why not give it a home in your kitchen? with any luck, the iconic handle makes it a breeze to carry anywhere, and can even be used as a stand for a more relaxed listening position. 

Bill Amberg Edition
Made in london by our friends at bill amberg studio. The OB–4 leather bag is the elegant protection you need when you walk the street in that high fashion district in a metropolitan city somewhere. Or, when you just want to round off the edges of OB–4 and feel the soft touch of genuine leather. Ultra durable cow hide is hand stitched along four edges for a perfectly tailored and acoustically transparent fit. The detachable strap can be adjusted to several lengths. each of these first edition bags are unique and hand marked with an edition number.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
