There are many different smartphone speakers available to suit specific consumer preferences. Some are interested in having all of the bells and whistles like Bluetooth integration and portable capabilities, others may be interested in something a little bit different or quirky. The new smartphone speakers ‘Volta Sound Block’ caters to both crowds, including all of the new technologies that we all love so much. They also offer a truly unique piece that is different from anything I have seen in this category so far.

Each Volta Sound Block has been custom made out of a solid block of Oregon Northwest Alder. The actual speaker is made from a bison's horn. The Alder wood delivers a warm and crisp sound, and the horn amplifies. The horn is attached with magnets so it can be taken apart easily and carried around.
