Phonofonics II

July 14, 2007

 

The Phonofonics II looks more like a futuristic Vinyl player designed by Apple. However the Gramophone uses passive amplification to transform any personal music player + earbuds into a sculptural audio console. Without the use of external power or batteries, the Phonofone inventively exploits the virtues of horn acoustics to boost the audio output of standard earphones to up to 55 decibles which is roughly the maximum volume of laptop speakers.

 

Upon connecting active earphones to the Phonofone their trebly buzzing is instantly and profoundly transformed into a warm, rich and resonant sound.
