Hilarity will surely ensure if you invest in this iPhone amplifier.  It costs $500 and is sold by Hammacher.  Seriously, though, you probably could have guessed that if you’ve ever visited the online retailer before.

Not for nothing, the horn is entirely handcrafted.  And while it wasn’t birthed in the mouth of a volcano, it is made from slip-cast ceramic fired in Vincenza, Italy.  Apparently, its craftsmanship is comparable to that of the finest Chinese porcelain.  The result, especially at this price, should be something similar to acoustic bliss found at Colorado’s Red Rock’s amphitheater.  In other words, it naturally, without any external power sources, amplifies the sound from the iPhone using authentic horn acoustics.   And to ensure the cleanest of sound, the entire horn is supported by a walnut base that does its darnedest to avoid contact.

The Ceramic iPhone Horn weighs 5.5lbs and measures almost 18-inches long.
