Sure, you can play music from your smartphone, but that doesn’t mean the sound quality is any good. The CEntrance HiFi-Skÿn rectifies this, slipping over your iPhone to boost the music to how it should be heard.
The HiFi-Skÿn works by bypassing the iPhone’s inferior speaker jack and connecting with the music file itself. It then allows you to plug in those super-expensive headphones you own. In music-geek language, the case acts as a combination digital-audio converter and amplifier. Put simply for us laymen: the gadget takes the digital signal from your phone, cleans it up, and cranks it up so you can rock out without carting around a specialized music player.
The CEntrance HiFi-Skÿn currently comes in three colors and fits only iPhones. Besides the enriched sound, it also includes a one-amp charging circuit, which means your phone recharges twice as fast as normal. So line up that extended playlist and tune the old air guitar. For those about to rock, we salute you.
