Chinon, known as a camera manufacturer, is releasing a wooden horn-type passive speaker for iPhone (CH-PS840) on August 21.

The passive speaker amplifies sound by letting it pass through the wooden horn, not electronically. Therefore, it produces a soft sound to help people really enjoy the music.

It works without use of electricity. Simply place your iPhone next to the horn and it start playing music. You can use it as an iPhone charger and hands-free stand as well.
