If you want a stunning well-designed music player that you can speak to (and it listens, unlike your children!) and it delivers the music (or podcast, program, etc.) that you’ve asked for while also being portable and beautiful, then the Aether Cone will rock your world.
I placed my Aether Cone in white/silver on my shelves in my dining room where I entertain the most and after testing it for several weeks now, I found it to be the perfect addition to the space without cluttering it up with cords, clunky equipment or having to dock my phone (I’ve always hated doing that with other players). It’s also cordless because the battery lasts for 8 hours (there is a cord for plugging it in to a power source too in case you need it). I listen to my many playlists wirelessly and love it.
The Aether Cone is obviously wireless but also multi room, meaning you can pair multiple cones so you can hear the same song (or program, podcast, etc.) throughout the house without a single cord. I also like the discreet intuitive dial on the front on the rim of the cone so you can simply turn it and hear something similar to what you’ve been listening to. You can speak to it to change what is playing – there is no screen needed to change the song. It’s seriously so cool.
With this cone you may also control your playlist by speaking to it as I’ve mentioned already OR by logging into your Rdio account (or other playlist) and stream music from there. You can play music from Spotify, Beats Music and Pandora and also from a phone, laptop or iPad or other tablet because it has Bluetooth. I really LOVE this feature.
