Seashell iPhone Passive Speakers: Shellphone
May 20th, 2013
Thanks to the pathetic speakers on iOS devices, we’ve seen many types of passive speakers come about. A sub-type of these passive speakers are ones that repurpose other items. We’ve seen one made from an old gramophone horn, a trumpet and even a piece of bamboo. WAAM Industries’ Shellphone speaker is a modified seashell.
I really want to hear the sound that’s been amplified through a Shellphone.
Does it also sound like it’s coming from far away? Does it sound like the ocean? Is it as soothing and calming as the sound that you hear when you put a shell up to your ear, the air caressing its cool and smooth walls? Most importantly, does $75 (USD) sound like a fair price to you? Because that’s how much WAAM Industries is asking for one.
