iPhone Passive Wooden Speakers: Look Ma, No Electricity!
November 11th, 2011
Ever thought that you would own one of those acoustic speakers that works without electricity to amplify your tunes from your iPhone? Well, now’s your chance, thanks to Lowell’s minimal wooden iPhone speakers. No electricity is needed to power this baby, and you can choose from a few different types of wood to make it extra special.
The iPhone Speaker is basically a wooden dock that amplifies your iPhone’s tiny internal speaker. It’s supposed to work with all iPhones, and Lowell says the amplification effect is “amazing.” The dock measures 2″×2″×9″ and comes made out of cherry, walnut or soft maple. Each one has been handcrafted and finished with orange oil, coupled with wax.
Note that Lowell mentions that some older iPhones with cases won’t work in this dock. Other types of wood are available for $10 extra. The wooden iPhone speakers sell for $60 to $70 (USD) at Lowell’s Etsy shop, YellowGlueBlues.
