The Megaphone horns in on iPhone amplification duties

Have you been looking for a speaker system for your iPhone? How about a giant megaphone instead? Not unlike the Horn Stand Amplifier on steroids, the appropriately named "Megaphone," is a giant horn that will amplify the sound from your iPhone in a way that's bound to turn at least a few heads. Essentially just a giant megaphone, the horn's design amplifies the sound from your phone rather than a speaker system, with the actual volume control being taken care of on your handset rather than on the horn.
The non-powered horn is held up by a hand-carved natural wood stand, and is handmade out of ceramic. The docking area at the top of the horn is compatible with the original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and iPod touch. We also suspect you could use the megaphone with any other music player of a similar size to the iPhone with built-in speakers you can point into the horn. Due to the directional nature of megaphones, we're not sure how much use the unit would be for providing room-filling music at a party but it would probably keep those directly in front of it happy - and would definitely be a talking point.
The Megaphone is available now is black and white for 399.99 Euros (US$536), and in gold for 599.99 (US$804).
Here's some video of the Megaphone pumping up the jam with some old time tunes.
