Come April 2007, with only US$149.99, you can customize the horn sounds of your car.

Horntones, a US-based company has launched a new mobile audio system called FX-550 that will be able to load up to eight sounds, be it music, rude voices or sirens. The sounds of your choice will be loaded to the unit via a USB thumb drive, and the unit can either be installed in-dash board or be placed on the dash.

In addition to this unit, you will also need to purchase an audio amplifier as well as weather-proof speakers under your hood.

The product made its first debut at the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show in late January this year and it created a high level of interest amongst the visitors.

Horntones is currently accepting advance orders, and due to the overwhelming demand, the initial production will be allocated to customers on the first-come-first-served basis.

This new gadget will definitely be a great delight to many in Asia, especially to the car-proud Singaporeans. I wonder what our local authorities would say on this matter; perhaps it’s about time to enact the “honking” law in Singapore, before advertisers flourish the outdoor scene with their creativity and have branded jingles on these horns!
