The Airplay Speaker offers yet another example of tech companies indulging in a little bit of a throwback design spell. This simple and quaint sound system for the Apple iPhone features a retro aesthetic that will surely appeal to those looking for a nostalgic addition to their homes.

Brought to us by Bang & Olufsen, the Airplay Speaker goes in a pretty surprising direction despite the demand for vintage-like products. Bang & Olufsen is known for AV tech that all but screams luxury and affluence. Of course, it is always good to have a bit of diversity.

The Airplay Speaker boasts a perforated grill that embraces the Beolit 12. Paired with a convenient leather handle, the Airplay Speaker looks like a wicker basket. Equipped with Wi-Fi capabilities, it is compatible with iOS devices and computers. Stats for Retro Smartphone Acoustics Trending: Older & Mild
