Bizarre Old-School iPod DockJul 14th, 2007 | By James Lewin | Category: iPod Accessories, iPods & Portable Media Players, Reviews, Strange
Science & Sons has created a bizarre old-school style iPod dock that offers to replace the typical cheesy iPod¬†speakers with a souped-up gramophone.
The Phonophonics II delivers 55db directly from your iPod, acoustically amplifying the output of your portable media player’s earbuds.
Here’s their info on the strange device:
Through passive amplification alone, These unique pieces instantly transform any personal music player + earbuds into a sculptural audio console.
Without the use of external power or batteries, the Phonofone inventively exploits the virtues of horn acoustics to boost the audio output of standard earphones to up to 55 decibles* (or roughly the maximum volume of laptop speakers).
Upon connecting active earphones to the Phonofone their trebly buzzing is instantly and profoundly transformed into a warm, rich and resonant sound. ¬†
