“A bell-shaped horn is best for transmitting low-frequency instrumentation like violins, a truth beautifully captured by the Chicago-based Specimen instrument shop. Its bookshelf-appropriate Little Horn speakers are diminutive versions of the speakers that accompanied musician Andrew Bird on his ’09 tour. They’re constructed of high-density fiberglass, which aids resonance.” – i-D Magazine
“…I don't know my treble from a hole in the ground. Needless to say, I am not an audiophile. So why am I so transfixed by the Little Horn Speakers unveiled this week by Chicago-based custom guitar and amp shop Specimen? Well, just look at them. They're gorgeous. Apparently they also make music sound incredible. . . ”– Pastemagazine.com
”…these would be great speakers to have around. Not only do they have a look that is bound to turn heads, but those horns attached to the speakers do actually contribute to the sound quality. Giving a much bigger and more realistic sound.” – CoolestGadgets.com
