Griffin AirCurve Play

 

This battery-free amplifier delivers impressive volume for your iPhone at a great price.

Relatively portable ; Stand for both vertical and horizontal viewing ; Adds huge volume boost ; Great price

Slightly muddled sound quality

When it comes to portable passive amplifiers, you can't expect much more than this. The Griffin AirCurve Play is the best bet for iPhone 4 owners looking for serious sound without any batteries or wires. At $19.99, it's cheaper than both the Bone Horn...

Griffin AirCurve From ThinkGeek

 

The AirCurve by Griffin is a dock for the iPhone that also amplifies your sounds or music without the use of a speaker or electricity. The dock is made out of clear plastic and feels very sturdy, with the AirCurve you get 2 iPhone dock adapters one for...

Read Griffin AirCurve

 

As an iPhone owner, I'm familiar with the Griffin line of iPod/iPhone/Apple accessories. I'm also familiar with the shortcomings of the iPhone's speaker, and that holding or cupping your hand around the speaker port will enhance (or at least change)...

Cheap, sturdy, attractive construction

Docking connector is a fiasco

20 is pretty steep for a hunk of plastic, but would be the going rate. If it included an honest pass-through connector it would be a very useful product, but as-is it’s rather gimmicky. It really does make the iPhone sound better and (much) louder, but...

Griffin Aircurve boosts your iPhone audio without power

 

I've been testing the new Griffin Aircurve with my iPhone for the past week. My primary alarm clock each morning is my iPhone which I've set to wake me at the same time each weekday. Usually I just leave it flat on my nightstand. Sometimes I plug it...

Griffin AirCurve review

 

An acoustic speaker that amplifies the speakers built into the iPhone, the Griffin AirCurve is a simple but brilliant gadget.

Innovative, well designed, and incredibly useful

Not that loud

At only £18 with no running costs and a fantastic curiosity factor, the Griffin AirCurve is the sort of ‘green’ gadget that oozes coolness, and it’s massively innovative in a battery-powered market.

Decent

 

I use this at work to boost my audio on my iPhone since it's usually very loud there from mechanical noise.

Uses no power, passes through USB connector, can be used as a dock ; Works great as an audio booster, the +10DB is no lie

Distorts audio quite a bit. I'm very picky about my audio

Great Product, DOESN'T WORK WITH IPHONE 4

 

About iPhone 4: I've been using the AirCurve with my 3G for over a year and a half now (forever in i-product time) and love it, however I bought an iPhone 4 yesterday and realized Apple had moved the speaker to the other side. This means the iPhone 4...

I've been using the AirCurve for over a year and a half and love it. It amplifies and channels the sound of my iPhone very well. It's ok for music/videos, but excels as a non powered way for me to use my iPhone as an alarm clock, and a great way of...

None from my experience. I guess I wish they made one of out metal and not plastic, so it can be recycled and also match the iPhone better

Awesome

 

Awesome, cool physics involved, zero power use, simultaneous battery charging

Keep forgetting where I put it because I want to take it everywhere, my wife rolling her eyes every time I use it, have to use an official (read: expensive) ipod cable for the simultaneous battery charging, cheap cables don't usually fit

Sweet deal!

 

Newegg never disappoints, and Griffin iPhone accessories don't either IMO.

Price ($!0), appearance, functionality. I love this dock, it is a sweet modern looking dock, requires no power, and the best part is that my alarm actually wakes me up now. This dock is beautiful physically also, feels very solid and the corner screws...

Does what it says

 

Can be tricky to assemble -- make sure you're using the right connector.

Solid, does what it says -- holds the iPhone/iPod and increases the volume. Relatively stylish and quite clever design

Distorts the sound a little. You can hear the compression at the high and low end; the music doesn't have its full range any more. Sounds a little tinny as well, more so than the iPhone/iPod alone
