SoundJaw Amplifier for iPad: Tiny Add-on, Big Difference
There are many things to like about Apple’s iPad, but its rear-facing speaker isn’t one of them. I’m not talking about how they’re weak and tinny since most mobile devices have below average speakers anyway. It’s that the sound is directed away from the user’s ears.

Artist Christopher Locke – who also made these gadget fossils – used a salvaged trumpet to make an analog amplifier.

Onkyo Debuts Cool Retro Style Audio Gear
I was a child of the 80’s, so I tend to remember all the weird stuff we had back them. The bright colors, questionable wardrobes, and gigantic electronics of the period are what I grew up with.

Heinz Can of Beans Amplifer: Musical Fruit

Heinz Can of Beans Amplifer: Musical Fruit
While it’s not as cool as those mini Marshall and ORANGE amps, this is certainly one of the more unusual portable amplifiers I’ve seen. Hand-built by some guy simply going by the name “Marcn,” this isn’t any ordinary can of beans.

Fully Playable Electric Guitar T-Shirt: This One Goes to 11

Dacport USB Dac/Amplifier: the Audiophile’S Travel Buddy
I’m not that familiar with audio gear and technology, but I do know that getting quality sound from earphones almost always comes with a high price tag.
