While the Wave Cradle does act like a neat little dock for the iPod, this item actually helps amplify the sound that comes out of the tiny speakers of an MP3 player.
What sets it apart from other items on the market is that it doesn't rely on electronics to turn up the volume. Instead, the curvy design helps redirect the speakers on the bottom of the device back towards the front. It's guaranteed to fill a small room reaching up to 20 feet away with crisp, clean sounds that would not be achieved if the device was simply laying flat.
The Wave Cradle is an interesting concept that does the job of an amplifier without the complexities of wires.
