Aether is a cone speaker which knows what music you want to listen to, based on your listening history and ratings.

Aether connects to Wi-Fi and collects data from your listening history and music ratings from streamed music sources, to develop soundtracks targeted towards a person's specific taste. The company hopes that with a single push of a button, the Cone will play exactly what you’re in the mood to listen to. The Cone is simple to change; by turning the dial to the right or left, you can play another track -- if you twist the dial a little further, the device will play something entirely different.

If you’re tired of the music that you’re currently listening to, or if your playlists just feel like they’re getting old, the Aether speaker will keep the music coming and the beats fresh. Stats for Preference-Selecting Speakers Trending: Older & Mild
