3D Printed Symphony Shells Amplify Smartphones with Style

I’ve seen lots of acoustic amplifier add-ons for smartphones, but never any that are quite as cool looking as these. Symphony Shells are 3D printed acoustic amplifiers which are reminiscent of marine life.

The organic shapes serve not only to amplify sound, but to add a touch of nautical style to your phone while docked. They come in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes, ranging from the $45 (USD) Urchin :: solo (shown in green above), which boosts your phone’s speaker by about 12db, to the $95 Murex :: solo (shown in orange), which increases volume by 16db, up to the $165 Nautilus :: solo (shown in blue), and boosts volume by 19db. All three designs are also available in the “ensemble” variants which infuse multicolored designs onto the shells.

Simply Amplified, the team behind the Symphony Shells is currently raising funds for production of the line – to be made out of fully-recyclable 3D printed materials. The docks will be compatible with a wide variety of smartphones, including iPhone 3G/3GS/4/4S/5, Samsung Galaxy SII/SIII/Note II, Nokie Lumia 920, HTC Droid DNA and Motorola Droid Razr MAXX models

If you’d like to get in on the action, head on over on Kickstarter and pledge. Early supporters of the Symphony Shells save $10 to $20 on the designs compared to the retail prices mentioned above.
