Sgnl is the brainchild of Innomdle Lab, the first company ever to officially spin off from Samsung Electronics. Pronounced ‘i-nom-dul’, it means ‘dudes’ or ‘guys’ in Korean with an added nuance of friendliness and intimacy. It also stands for 'Innovation Medley', which conveys the team’s ambition for the endless pursuit of innovation through resolving daily discomfort with ground-breaking technology.

People who have tried it say the product works as advertised, but the audio quality isn’t amazing. It sounds like an old timey radio broadcast. Media Link
