BORN FROM INSPIRATION 

Symphony Shells emerged as the result of unbound creativity. What started out as a fun design competition to create the best acoustic amplifier for the iPhone resulted in a product with potential just waiting to be unleashed. The NAUTILUS was the first Symphony Shell created and was an instant hit, making it obvious that we had to pursue and expand this design concept. Thus, Simply Amplified and Symphony Shells were born. Inspired by marine life, our line of Symphony Shells not only enhance your listening experience but are also customizable to fit your lifestyle. Unhindered by the restrictions of traditional manufacturing, Symphony Shells are functional art pieces unlike anything on the market.


A PROVEN CONCEPT 

Phi, or the Golden Ratio, is a mathematical pattern that is not new to the design world. But by combining this ratio with art and functionality, Symphony Shells gain their ability to amplify and enhance your music in a way that’s, well, symphonic. Turning sketches and concepts into CAD, the Golden Ratio defines the acoustic channel that amplifies music from your iPhone speakers. The result is aesthetically pleasing, notably functional, and simple to use acoustic iPhone amplifiers. Using the limitless capabilities of 3D printing (Additive Manufacturing), we were able to bring these beautiful sculptures to life. Free from cables or batteries, Symphony Shells don’t exhibit the limitations of other amplifiers and are as much art as amp.  They can be placed in many different areas while maintaining their artistic appeal. Simply set your iPhone into the amplifier and you are ready to enjoy your music – just as if you are in the front row at the symphony.

The URCHIN
Impress your friends with this compact beauty. The URCHIN is our only universal amplifier, allowing you to express creativity with any iPhone model. Our customizable URCHIN is our most affordable piece and, with an average amplification of 12 decibels, it offers the best “bang” for your buck (see amplification video). All of our customization options can be found in the COLORS & INFUSED GRAPHICS pdf via the link at the bottom of the page, choose from a single color or one of our gradient color options. Below is a preview of these options. Don’t miss out on our Limited Edition Infused Graphic, available to ONLY 200 backers at a discounted price.

The MUREX 
The neighbors will be jealous of this eye-catching work of art. The omni-directional sound design makes this a perfect centerpiece in any environment. It is tailored to fit your iPhone 3G/S or 4/S. The MUREX amplifies by an average of 16 decibels (see amplification video) and has more custom options than the URCHIN. Customization options can be found in the COLORS & INFUSED GRAPHICS pdf at the bottom of the page and include two color choices as seen above or your choice of a single Infused Graphic. Don’t miss out on our Limited Edition Infused Graphic, available to ONLY 150 backers at a discounted price.

The NAUTILUS 

If you really want to make a statement, this stunning masterpiece is for you. Our most customizable piece is the original design that started it all - the NAUTILUS. Commanding attention, the NAUTILUS instantly becomes the audio and visual focal point of the room. Like the MUREX, it is tailored to fit your iPhone 3G/S or 4/S. With an average amplification of 19 decibels (see amplification video) you can enjoy the NAUTILUS at many outdoor events, such as backyard BBQ’s, picnics, and camping trips. Customization options can be found in the COLORS & INFUSED GRAPHICS pdf at the bottom of the page and in addition to the MUREX Options, the NAUTILUS offers you what we call a “floating” Infused Graphic which allows you to pick your own base color on top of which the graphic is applied. Don’t miss out on our Limited Edition Infused Graphic, available to ONLY 100 backers at a discounted price.

FAQ

  • Yes! Once you've made your Symphony Shell pledge choice, back us a 2nd time at the $5 level and receive the ultimate custom amplifier, designed to fit any iPhone case.

  • We can only speculate exactly how the iPhone 5 is going to be designed, so we can not say for sure. If what all the blogs and other sources are saying is true, that it is just thinner and taller and if the width does not change, then the current design for the 4 will work. If they decide to switch the side the speaker is on like they did between the 3 and 4, then we will create a free adapter for anyone who ordered theirs for a 4, upon request. If the iPhone 5 comes out before we start production, then we will produce yours to fit the iPhone 5 if you would like. Assuming the width does not change, the URCHIN will work no mater what side the speaker is on because it was designed with two ports on either side, which is what makes it universal.
