The Flexound® Story

Flexound was born under the amazing Finnish aurora borealis.

Requested by his wife, the inventor Jukka, PhD in acoustics and a violinist, created the first instrument that transformed plain music into a magical combination of high-quality sound and distributed vibration. Meant first to be a therapy tool for children only, the team quickly realized that this game-changing innovation feels so good and makes one so happy that it must be offered to everyone. 

Jukka Linjama, who has a PhD in sound and vibration technology and has also worked for Nokia, wanted to create something new that would help his wife Mirja, an occupational therapist, in her work with disabled and autistic children. This wish gave first birth to a soothing, vibrating mattress. Through many stages and a great deal of teething troubles, the feelsound player that is now known as Taikofon was born.

Inside the pillow-like Taikofon is an instrument - the Flexound® Xperience - that creates both sound and distributed vibration in unison. Taikofon is successfully used now as a therapy tool, but the team quickly realized that the Flexound® Xperience creates a completely new dimension to listening music. The innovation is game-changing and must be offered to everyone.  

Designed and Engineered in Finland

Of course in Finland. Where else?

The Home of Flexound: Finland, Finland, Finland.

It’s a country with more saunas than personal cars, with 187 888 fresh water lakes, midnight sun and vast uninhabited forest areas. Its people speak one of the most difficult languages on the globe and drink more coffee than anyone. The tiny nation tops global statistics in equality, education, anti-corruption, patents and innovations. No wonder that Finland with its clean air and Northern location is also the home of both Santa Claus and the Flexound® Xperience.
