Yantouch Black Diamond 2 The Black Diamond 2 is a dark globe with a diamond-style pattern on the forward-facing section, an angled slot for your phone on the rear and a sturdy rubber base to stop it from rolling away.  Although it looks solid, the Black Diamond 2 is actually hollow and peering in through the dock’s slot reveals a textured front surface, shaped like a cut diamond.  Turning the dock upside down reveals two small holes which correspond to the iPhone’s speakers, allowing audio amplification.

With the dock plugged in, a blue light emanating from the base to show you it’s powered up and ready to go.  However, before you pop your iPhone in, head over to the App Store and download the Black Diamond app, as it’s essential to the dock’s appeal.

The colourful display makes the Black Diamond 2 come alive, with the front of the dock glowing and pulsating.  All the effects produce different light shows, and you can move through them with a simple tap of the Black Diamond 2, thanks to its use of voice control.  It’s actually quite difficult to catch on film or in picture form as it is quite subtle, and the image shown above is actually far brighter than the effect in real life.  After all, the Black Diamond 2 is an ‘ambient’ dock and therefore not supposed to burn your retinas out with blinding degrees of light.

The user experience cannot be put into words here and you need to try it out first hand at retail store near you.
