Malibu will be available online at urbanista.com/malibu and retailers worldwide from late September 2023.

Unbound freedom with Malibu

Malibu’s mobile companion app gives you deep customisation options such as fully customisable EQ band, so you can adjust the speaker’s audio to meet your taste. The app also helps you keep track of the speaker’s live light-charging and historical data to make the most out of your playtime. Malibu comes with a full day battery reserve, making sure you will never run out of charge, no matter the lighting conditions.

Putting you in complete control of your audio experience, with Malibu you can effortlessly take charge of your audio with the speaker’s intuitive control buttons, or connect up to two devices together with the Stereo Link function for a true stereo experience.

Tuomas Lonka, Brand and Marketing Director at Urbanista, comments: “We have been excited to continue to progress and innovate the audio market with brand new applications of the latest in solar cell technology. We knew as soon as we launched our self-charging headphones, Los Angeles, that we would be striving to apply this innovative technology to create a new way of consuming audio, to other product applications for our customers. We continue to push the pace and boundaries of innovation as this is our third light powered product launch in three years. To bring yet another world’s first product with Powerfoyle™ technology to market is something we are very proud of and we are excited to see the adventure people go on with Urbanista Malibu.”

Giovanni Fili, CEO at Exeger comments: “Urbanista is setting the example I expect all our partners to follow. In 2021, we started with the world’s first self-powered headphones, the ‘Los Angeles’, followed by the ‘Phoenix’ true wireless earbuds. Today, the ‘Malibu’ speaker becomes the third product in just three years, completing the full line-up of audio devices powered by clean, endless energy. Urbanista has created the blueprint for the rest of the consumer electronics industry by showing that Powerfoyle, with its increased functionality, ultimate user convenience, and a positive impact on the planet, should be in every new product! This is how we set a new standard of convenience and sustainability in the consumer electronics industry and I invite everyone to join our journey.”
