Ampli Phone – Review

On March 18, 2009

OK, so I thought I saw and heard everything in the land of accessories for the iPhone.  I mean, cases, docks, remotes, speakers, screen protection, and even battery packs, but this?  No way.  Never would have thought of this.  It’s the Ampliphone!

Rightfully named, it uses no batteries, no plugs, no speakers, nothing but a good old fashioned horn to amplify your iPhones built in speaker.  Of course the horn is plastic, and if your looking for any bottom end sound, just stop reading here, but if your looking for a good way to really amplify your built in speaker (and i mean fill a room with sound), this works.

The other nice feature is that you can charge your phone while it’s in the Ampliphone, there is a cutout below the dock that lets you sneak your plug through.

I could absolutely see taking this thing with me to outdoor events where some nice background music (not high quality sound), is all that I’m looking for.

At $34.95 its a toss up for value, but its light weight, durable, and definately the only choice for non powered amplification.
