Not For Sale
*Important !!!

This model is not available any more due to some issues in printing.
Please check our website for mass production version in black or white color. It will be available in April 2014.


The Minimized Gramophone "iAcoustic S" is an accessory for your iPhone, but it was not intended for an additional, separate device.
You need the charging cable for the iPhone every day, and the iAcoustic S was designed to transform the cable into a multi-functional device. The cable dressed up with the iAcoustic S can become an acoustic amplifier and a stand as well as a charger. When you put the cable into your bag, the iAcoustic S can also be a cable winder.

Its design was simplified for following the additional functions, and to provice the longer vibrating air column for the better and louder sound quality, its curved tube shape was created. The thickness of its bell and curved tube is 0.8mm.

It can also fit the iPhone with a typical case or a bumper. A mock-up plug is included, so you can use it instead of the charging cable when you don't need the cable.

* It works with the original charging cable.

any chance we can have this printed in metal?

I have checked some old and new prints of the first design, but I could not find any problem, and also the mock-up plug fits well. If it doesn't fit, I doubt any printing issue. At the first time, you can feel some parts are tight to be assembled, but after using them a few times, they will be ok. This model has been updated to the first design again.

@karlyrizzo Oh. I am really sorry about it. It seems better to change the way to hold the lightning cable. I have another effective version. I will update this model to it. I apologize for this inconveniece and appreciate your feedback. Please email or private message me with your address and the material you ordered. I will update the model today and re-order for you.

@abite hi, it does not fit, I tried so hard to push it through, I thought I was going to break the whole thing. Should I mail it back to get a smooth one so it will work?

@karlyrizzo Thanks for purchasing it. If you ordered not polished, the plug and the wedge part would be pretty tight beause of the material powder attached on the surface. Please put in and out the parts individually serveral times without the cable. If the parts don't fit even after the initial work, please PM me. I will modify the model and re-order for you. If it works, please PM me your address, I will send you a couple of the rubber-sponge gasket.

I just received this item and the mock-up plug that was included does not fit into the gramophone! Why wouldn't this have been tested before it was mailed out?

Please PM me with your address if you have ordered this item. I will send you a couple of rubber-sponge gaskets via air-mail, which can prevent sound leakage.
