As we are slowly getting settled in our new home (we moved in 3.5 months ago), we are carefully selecting products that can simplify our life while still providing an elegant aesthetic to our home.

I love music.  I prefer to have something playing in the background whether Knox and I are playing with his toys, I am working at my desk or lounging in the back yard.  And, of course, when we are entertaining guest.  When selecting my perfect player, I had three qualities on my wish list.  It was important to me to find a speaker that had a high quality sound + a high quality look.  And, I also needed something that was portable so I can easily take it with us to the back yard or to the lake house.

At least, I thought that was my only criteria.  After discovering the Aether Cone, I now know that I wanted so much more.

I first fell in love with the well-designed, simple build.  I knew it would look beautiful displayed on a shelf or more prominently on a stack of coffee table books.  But when I learned about the ‘whole product approach’, I knew it was for me.  The Cone’s intuitive dial and voice command free’s you from needing a screen or an app to control the device.  If you want to hear Taylor Swift (guilty!), you simply press the center button and ask out loud “play Taylor Swift”.  Or, if you prefer to listen to the news (or a specific radio station), you can request that, too. 😉

More favorite features…

Multi-room: You can sync multiple cones to enjoy the same music throughout your home – or play a variety of sounds simultaneously for different listeners.  It is easily adjusted to suit your current needs.

Turn dial:  If you would like it to play something similar to what is currently streaming, turn the dial a little.  If you would like to listen to something completely different from what you are listening to, give the dial a big spin for a totally different selection.

App: Lastly, if you’re curious about what Cone is playing, you can find out in the Aether app.
