MegaPhone Holds Your iPhone In Place, Amplifies Its Audio to Mega Proportions
November 10th, 2011
Would you believe me if I told you that there was a way for you to increase the audio from your iPhone many times over without hooking it to some speaker or some other electronic device? If you’re sharp (and know a thing or two about Physics), then you might be thinking of something along the lines of some sort of amplifying device.
So picture the iPhone Portable Amplifier Horn – only about ten times more massive and prettier, and you’ve got the MegaPhone.
Basically, the MegaPhone ceramic amplifier that’s fashioned in the shape of a horn, kind of like the ones you see in movies where people sound alarms or grab the villagers’ attention (yes, I mean those kinds of movies) by blowing into it. However, the designer behind it, En & Is, gave it a modern look by giving it a coat of sleek black and white paint. There’s also a gold-coated version for people who have a more expensive taste.
The MegaPhone ships out with a thin, wooden stand to hold the MegaPhone upright. You can check out the video below to see (or rather, hear) just how much it amplifies sound coming from your iPhone:
The MegaPhone looks pretty, amplifies sound, makes for a fine display on your coffee table, and unfortunately costs more than what most people would be willing to shell out for an iPhone dock-slash-sound amplifier: the black and white versions go for 400 Euros (~$544 USD), while the gold one costs 600 Euros (~$816 USD).
