The Aether Cone is a high end WiFi and Bluetooth speaker system which lets you play music from smartphones, tablets, laptops and more using Bluetooth and WiFi airplay. With its rechargeable battery you can take it anywhere as well – room to room or out and about with you. You’ll get about 8 hours of music from a single charge, impressive!
When the Cone was originally released a few years ago it retailed for £300. Aether, the parent brand, made a deal with streaming service RDIO for exclusivity on the device, promising features like voice command and intelligent playlists. Unfortunately, in November 2015, RDIO closed its doors and streaming service shut down. Due to the deal with RDIO, Aether was also forced to close, but not before giving the Cone a final update, changing its functionality and exclusive RDIO playback to work as a Bluetooth and WiFi Airplay speaker and enabling Spotify Connect.
We have bought all remaining stock of the Cone and slashed the price from £300 to just £39.97, meaning you literally will not be able to find a speaker of this quality or sound for anything near this price. Plus it’s exclusive to us so you won’t find the cone at this price anywhere else.
It’s easy to compare the Cone to brands like Sonos and Bose with its clean, modern design. It’s also easy to compare the sound quality to top brands as well, because whilst the Cone may be a fraction of the price it really holds its own in terms of sound quality vs models that literally cost 5 times as much.
Crafted using the highest quality materials, the unique, sophisticated shape offers an eye catching twist on form and function that's beautiful even when switched off.
Using Spotify Connect you can easily browse, explore and play high quality music from any room in the house using your smart device as the remote. With a direct Spotify connection, you can play music straight from the cloud and still use you smart device for calls or videos without interrupting your music, even if your smart device goes out of WiFi range the cone will keep playing, thanks to its direct connection to Spotify over WiFi!
Set up and connecting is a breeze too, in our tests we were able to connect over Bluetooth and be playing our tunes in less than 30 seconds, no waiting around or spending hours trying to get it working, but that’s what you’d expect from a £300 speaker, isn’t it? The difference is, you’re only paying £35!
The Cone keeps it simple; featuring only 4 buttons that let you control your music; a simple front ring, central touch pad and volume buttons that let you take control of your music with just a tap or a turn.
The two metal buttons on the top control the volume.
To change track simply twist the dial clockwise, no faffing with your phone.
The central touch pad controls your music, tap once to pause and again to resume play.
The Cone isn’t just good looking; it also offers fantastic sound quality. Its unique profile is great for acoustics. It delivers impressively rich, detailed audio through a 3 Inch woofer and 20-watt amplifier, and with the ability to use all your favourite steaming services, like Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music and more, you’ll almost have too much to choose from! Or if you prefer play the music stored on your phone, tablet or laptop? No problem – you still just connect over Bluetooth or WiFi and you can stream straight from the device!
Great question! The Cone has a rechargeable battery that lasts around 8 hours and takes 2 - 3 to fully charge. You can still play all of your music while it charges too so if you're near an outlet you'll never run out of juice.
If the looks alone of the Cone could kill, then the sound will make you drop dead! Everyone in the office simply can't get over how good it sounds! We all have one now!
The chances are very high! The Cone is Bluetooth 2.1 compatible, meaning if you have a device with Bluetooth 2.1 and above it will work fine! Refer to the manufacturers specifications on your device to double check though!
The Cone isn't water resistant so make sure to keep it away from water! Don't dunk it in the tub or place it too near the kitchen sink and you'll be fine!
The very last software update that changed the functionaity of the cone means it will always be compatible over bluetooth or Wi-Fi. No matter what happens to any of your streaming software going forward, this version of the cones software is futureproof and works flawlessly!
You can only play music through one speaker but you can definately buy multiple and connect them all to your network to use in individual rooms! One of us even bought 5 to scatter around his home!
Not at all, if you prefer to just lie there in the ambiance you can just control the music and volume from your device.
