Introducing The Aeroskull from Jarre Technologies

Jarre Technologies, founded by the musical ledge, Jean Michel Jarre has unveiled its latest speaker system, the Aeroskull.

The Aeroskull features two 15 Watt speakers hidden behind sunglasses with an impressive 40 Watt Sub Woofer covering the whole of the back of the skull as well as 1% THD (Total Harmonic Distortion), to deliver an uncompromising listening experience.

Jean Michel Jarre first used the image of the skull in 1976 on the cover of his world renowned album, Oxygene which sold over 15 million copies. He says, “For me, the skull symbolises the perfect acoustic instrument – it is the sound box for word, song and music.” mmmm….very deep JM!

The Aeroskull is compatible with all generations of iPhones and iPods and a jack cable can also connect to any Mp3 player, computer or CD/DVD player. Bluetooth simplifies connection to any smartphone and the listening experience is optimised by the APTX codecs.

Available in 11 striking colours, there is a choice to suit every taste and interior. Pretty cool we think.

Cool music sharing site: This is my Jam

This is my Jam is a cool new music sharing site where you can recommend tracks to your friends and followers.

Each week you can pick a new track (your “jam”), which is optionally shared over Twitter and Facebook. Your friends will similarly be recommending tracks and you can listen to them all in one set list – a kind of mix tape for the 21st century. You can also listen to a random jam, drawn from the thousands on the site, or a popular jam, which has had the most listens this week.

One downside of the site is that the list of songs is not comprehensive, but this has been nicely sidestepped by allowing subscribers to also select their jam from YouTube music videos, widening the selection considerably.
