Retro Phone Handset

Share

Dial “R” for Retro

Yeah, we know all about those bluetooth headsets for cell phones, but
forget that stuff! We have here the latest development in cell
phone technology and it’s a big hunk of beautiful plastic. An
accessory for your phone that you can really grab onto. Something
with heft and that good-old-American solid construction feel – like
a 1972 Cadillac.

The Retro Phone Handset is a new production replica of the
Western Electric 500-series model, which was the classic phone
handset for several decades. It’s been slightly modified to work
with the headset jack of most cell phones (or via a “hands free”
adapter kit, sold elsewhere). Just plug-in and dial – or for added
effect, put your cell phone in your pant’s pocket – then it looks
like you’re talking on a phone connected to… well, who knows?
