Amplify your phone or handheld music player with a glass!
Let’s be honest, the speakers on my iPhone don’t produce the loudest sound. It isn’t always convenient or possible to have a docking station in order to amplify the music. I have a set of portable speakers that I can plug into my phone, but the battery doesn’t keep it’s charge forever (I do recommend purchasing a set of these though – mine were reasonably priced from iHome). What to do when you want louder music? Set the volume on your phone to medium (so the speakers don’t sound distorted) and set your phone in a medium sized glass. It works!
