Griffin Aircurve Review

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on January 24, 2010 by misterjrtaylor

I was lucky enough to be given a Griffin Aircurve as a stocking filler for Christmas, having previously seen them reviewed on the telly. What a simple, elegant little device, creating a good quality amplified sound straight out of the box!

Not only does it look fantastic, but it really does amplify the sound, reproducing enough bass to convincingly make this sound like a decent(ish) set of speakers. Yes, none of that high pitched, tiney, bassless non-sense here!

Griffin say:

“AirCurve looks like a simple, elegantly minimal stand for your iPhone. But inside is a coiled waveguide “horn’ that collects the sound from the built-in speaker of your iPhone, amplifies it (by about 10 decibels), and projects it into the room. AirCurve’s waveguide has been mathematically engineered to deliver amazing amplification — you’ll swear there are full-sized speakers in there. And AirCurve’s see-through translucent polycarbonate body lets you appreciate the graceful curves inside that do all the work.”

Time Magazine say:

“Designed to collect sound from an iPhone and amplify it without using additional energy, the AirCurve works wonders thanks to the spiral structure inside its translucent base.”

I say:

“It Rocks.”

It was a fine, clear day (although freezing) and the rusty metal sculpture rose high over the hills, starring straight at the sun. The scale of the Angel is unbelievable… standing at it’s feet, looking up makes you dizzy!
