Decent, yet not groundbreaking – Portable Silicone Horn Style Stand Acoustic Amplifier for iPhone 5 - Black Reviews

Pros:
This is a cheap alternative to costlier design examples. Silicone shape seems to be well-done, it didn't scratch my iphone Obviously, this can't fit a phone with a housing It came in two parts, that you have to mount togeter (easy done). The two parts are tightly bound together, yet remain amovible.
Cons:
... well it's silicone. And silicone is soft and flexible. So it does kind of dampen sound a bit. Which is obviously what you would NOT expect from this gizmo.
Other:
It doesn't amplify sounds by a tremendous amount, but at least you can take it to the beach. Or to the swimming pool. Or both. The fact that the horn and the support can come apart is great in case you need to shove this in your pocket, or if you need to clean it. The matte black finish goes well with a black iPhone. Just sayin' !
Bottomline:
Well, what is this useful for ? If you spend most of your time at home or at friends', where you have access to a set of speakers... then this is a gadget. However, if you spend time in places without too much noise, without speakers, and where you would need some slight amplification of some kind to get some atmosphere... then go for it, this gizmo will definitely do the trick
