Aether Cone

Aether Cone_blackandcopper

Description: Cone by Aether is the first music player that learns where, when and what you like to listen to in order to play the perfect sound for the moment. Cone uses your inputs -- such as skipping a song, changing the volume, or requests via voice control -- to build a listening experience tailored to you. Think of it like having your own (very stylish) personal DJ.For example, on Wednesday evening you ask Cone to “play Frank Sinatra” using voice control. The next night it’s not necessarily going to play Frank Sinatra, but something similar. And if that’s not right for the situation, you can simply turn the dial and Cone will slightly deprioritize that song. Cone takes about two minutes to set up out of the box, then you simply turn the front dial and it instantly plays the perfect music for the moment, as well as podcasts and Internet radio. You can stream audio wirelessly from your smartphone, tablet or computer using Airplay. And recently, Aether announced Bluetooth and Multi-room capabilities for Cone, which makes it the perfect companion for you anytime, anywhere. No matter where you listen, Cone can take care of the soundtrack.
