PhonoFone II – zero power ceramic iPod speaker dock boosts earbud volumes – at a price

PhonofoneII

The PhonoFone II is a fascinating twist on the iPod dock meme. Made of ceramic, this zero power dock connects to your iPod earphones and boosts the sound through natural acoustic technology. The basic white version costs $500.00 (?) but this limited edition black model will set you back a cool $600.00. Yep, we’re also trying to work out the power saving return on investment angle too. Give us time.

 Without the use of external power or batteries, the Phonofone II inventively exploits the virtues of horn acoustics to boost the audio output of standard earphones to up to 55 decibels. Now let’s make this clear, 55 decibels is not going to entertain your party, but it’s fine for the office or next to the bed or or for a dinner party. But honestly, if you want to get a great sounding set of speakers that you can crank up and rock out to, get a set of Bose.
