Aether Cone makes music simple: It learns what you like to listen to, when and where you like to listen to it, and it puts all that behind something natural -- a dial. Turn the dial and it instantly plays music and Internet radio you'll love. If you know what you want to hear, just ask for any artist or radio station and Cone plays it for you.
"We started Aether to make beautifully simple products that everyone could use and enjoy. Adding ad-supported music from Rdio right out of the box and removing the need for a subscription is a big step forward toward that goal," said Duncan Lamb, Aether's co-founder. "It's been amazing to hear how customers have fallen in love with their Cones -- its simplicity and unique ability to learn what they love and pick the soundtrack has helped put music back into their daily lives in a really delightful way."
30 Million Songs, Out of the Box
Cone's unique dial and voice interface work wonderfully with Rdio's full on-demand subscription service or its free, ad-supported Internet radio service, both providing access to a catalog of more than 30 million songs.
A Great Gift, Now for Everyone
Just in time for the holidays, Cone is now even simpler for anyone to set up. Order at Aether.com or Amazon.com and Cone arrives on your doorstep in an easy-to-open box. A new Web-based setup takes you through the steps of connecting Cone to your Wi-Fi and getting the music playing. No subscriptions needed.
Aether also announced today that Cone will be sold internationally in the United Kingdom. Information on Cone's expanded availability can be found here.
