Chicago-based design studio studioellsworth is the mastermind behind this table top concert hall. They're made from salvaged phonograph horns which, combined with the wood block that acts as both iPhone holder and amplifier, "produce a rich vibrant sound that digital speakers cannot match."

Mobile devices are a music-lover's dream, but for discerning ears, those tiny speakers just don't cut it. This vintage industrial object is an acoustic amplifier for your device's internal speaker. It increases volume by 30%, and gives your music that unique old-fashioned quality.

You can buy this from lhooq's online store and they retail for $300 USD.
