I Like That: Trumpet iPhone Speaker Amplifier

April 22, 2013


This is the 'Cobra' iPhone 4 and 5 speaker booster made by Vinnie Veen (although it may be a take on the trumpet iPhone speakers made by Christopher Lock of HeartlessMachine. I don't know -- sometimes people come up with the same idea without it necessarily being ripped off. Hell, last year I was convinced I invented squircles). It's made out of brass instrument parts and is cool looking and I want one. If you're interested, you can contact Vinnie or Chris yourself about having one made. Alternatively, you could buy a trumpet, hack it apart, weld it back together in a configuration similar to this one, realize what a f***ing horrible job you did, then contact Vinnie or Chris about having one made.

Hit the jump for two videos of the amplifier in action.

Thanks to c-nasty, who agree everything sounds better through brass. Except the grating voice of an ex-girlfriend. That doesn't sound good through anything.

  • Not sure what came first, the itrumpet, or the iHorn? http://www.daftgadgets.com/...

    2nd video is bullshit. volumes not even up on the iphone. what a dick

  • Sybera168

    The video is flipped (The musical note is backward). So the volume is all the way up.

    you can still hear the glitch when he takes the phone out. my phone doesn't do that when i have music playing and pick it up off the side. what a boner

  • but still, you can tell by listening to it, its dubbed over
