Kickstarter is quickly becoming the go-to place for new great iPhone accessory projects. So far i have personally pledged to the HiddenRadio bluetooth speaker project, which was a huge success on Kickstarter, and now i might just have to pledge again for the Sonastand.
The Sonastand is a beautiful looking aluminum iPhone 4/4S amplifier dock that does not require any power connection, battery, or much space to enhance the audio experience of your favourite iPhone. Its beauty lies in its simplicity, and the fact that it really seems to work. What the Sonastand does is prop up your iPhone while in landscape mode, ensuring that its passive speaker horn is connected to the iPhone’s tiny speaker, and then it significantly boosts mid and high-end frequencies, all while looking very smart.
Lets face it, this is not an accessory for those that are looking for big sound from their iPhone, in which case you might want to consider a more traditional iPod speaker dock or an Airplay speaker, but rather a nice little accessory that both looks great and gives your iPhone audio a bit of a boost when out and about, or perhaps in the office, without the need to connect it to anything else. With its machined aluminum finish and consideration for allowing other connectivity sources, such as the pin connector, freedom to work while in use, makes this little accessory a well thought out little gem that should enhance both the audio and the style of your Apple iPhone.
In fact, don’t take my word for it (after all i have not tested the Sonastand), but check it out this video they have provided.
Colin and Bob, the guys behind the Sonastand project are currently getting real close to achieving their minimum pledge goal, which will take the Sonastand into full production and make it available in different color finishes as well. If you are interested in pledging, head over to Kickstarter to find out more. You can pledge as much as you like, but starting at $39 you ensure that you get your pre-order for a Sonastand in your choice of color and size (available in two different sizes).
