If you want to add a unique decorative piece to your home that also does a good job of boosting the sound from your iPhone, then the Megaphone is what you’re looking for.
Designed to resemble an Alpine horn, the Megaphone is a stylish ceramic device that allows you to place your iPhone in the ‘mouthpiece’ so the unique design can give your iPhone’s speaker a little omm-pah-pah boost by acting as a passive amplifier. Even if you choose to never make use of the horn’s sound-enhancing quality, it would make a stylish statement sitting on its little wooden stand and acting as a centerpiece for the room. I don’t know about you, but I can easily picture this thing sitting on my bar.
