We've all been there. Whether you're waiting in line for a show with a friend or sunbathing poolside with your crew, sometimes you just need to rock out to your favorite song in a public fashion. But let's be honest, no matter how new your phone is, even Siri can't help you increase the wimpy volume of your cell. But fret not, we've got two quick and easy ways to transform your cell phone's muffled sound into a mini stereo.

Trick #1: Drop your phone in a chip can. 
You won't believe the way it amplifies the sound, and you're recycling and reusing. Double win.
