For those of you who listen to their vintage tunes on an Ipod or other mp3 player and want a new accessory... this might be for you.

At the Science & Sons website, this Canadian company has created some ceramic devices they call phonofonics whose appearance resembles a miniature old phonograph. They are designed to amplify the ipod oputput by up to 55 decibles.

Basically the ipod earbuds are placed over a couple of small holes in the base and the natural accoustics of the ceramic horn amplifies the sound much like an old phonograph horn - without any additional electricity!




The price? A mere $875 (Canadian dollars)!!

They are only making 200 of them so you better hurry tongue.gif !

Hey, if you've got a pink ipod, why not these porkies???


..and where would you put the volume control ?



.. another option could be these portable monkey speakers.



..or you could just walk away from the whole thing...
