Using no electricity whatsoever, just pure acoustical engineering, the Phonofonics II will amplify the output from a set of earbud headphones connected to a music player to 55 decibels (about the maximum volume of laptop speakers). Only 200 of these unique retro modern acoustical design marvels will be made and at $875, I don't think they have to worry about iPhone-like lines of fans.
Implications - The Phonofonics II looks just like a Vinyl player but with a modern twist. Since you don't need an external power source or even batteries, you can take this musical treasure wherever your heart desires. The sound that comes from the Phonofonics II is "warm, rich and resonant."
