Aether’s Cone Speaker
This sweet little speaker might be our first splurge of 2015. But don’t think we’re only into its good looks — though that sleek, wireless, gramophone-inspired design is really good-looking. Nope, we’re into the Cone for its techy features, too. It streams music from your computer, phone or tablet via WiFi, or through Rdio if you have a subscription — and then it uses an algorithm to learn your habits, noting what you like to listen to at particular times of day, or in different rooms of your home. Pretty cool, right?
