Introduction: How to Amplify Your IPhone Speakers...with Your Hands!

Picture of How to Amplify Your IPhone Speakers...with Your Hands!

I was listening to a song one day on an iPhone and didn't have any external speakers, so I came up with this method to boost an iPhone's speakers, using only your hands.

Step 1: Grip

Start by holding the iPhone like this. You will notice that the speakers have been amplified immediately, and the sound will get slightly deeper.

Step 2: Cup

Cup your left hand around the iPhone and right hand like in the picture. This boosts the sound quite a lot, and the sound gets much deeper. Make sure that there are no spaces between your fingers, as this will ruin the tone.

Step 3: Adjust

Adjust your hands and experiment to get the best tone. If someone has a variation of this technique that works better, feel free to put them in the comments!

Thanks for the comment! Yes, I may do something like that in the future. If you haven't seen it already, you should check out the Whirlwind by urant. It's a really nice paper speaker and stand combo that can fold up into a pocket or wallet.
