irecorder-iphone-speaker

Although it looks very much like a cassette tape recorder I had years (and years) ago, the iRecorder is actually a speaker for iPhone 4/4S and 5/5S.  (It should work with any audio source with a 3.5mm jack, but the cassette compartment fits the iPhones.)  You plug the speaker's 3.5mm audio cable into the iPhone, [...]

This speaker is small enough to be portable, but it may be better off kept out of an overloaded gear bag.  Instead of metal, plastic, or wood, the Mason Jar Speaker and Amplifier uses a glass canning jar enclosure.  The battery-operated speaker components are in the "lid" and just screw down onto the jar.  You'll [...]
