Gear up for Halloween with Jean-Michel Jarre's Aeroskull speakers
Ah; Jarre Technologies. If there’s one audio gear manufacturer you can rely upon to deliver something truly outlandish, it’s them. Headed up by French electro pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre, they’re today showing off their Jarre Aeroskull.
And yep, as their name suggests, they’re shaped like a creepy, sunglass-wearing skull.
Available in 11 colours including red, silver and purple, each houses two 15 Watt speakers behind the lenses of the skull’s eyewear, and a 40 Watt subwoofer around the back. Enough to rattle one’s bones, presumably.
Offering Bluetooth connectivity, a 3.5mm jack and an Apple dock for iPhones and iPods (though you’ll need a Lightning connector adapter for iPhone 5 and 2012’s iPod line up), each skull weighs 4.5KG and comes with an IR remote.Priced at £349, the Jarre Aeroskull speakers hit the UK in October, just in time for Halloween!
We caught up with Jean-Michel Jarre at IFA last year in Berlin, where he was showing off his insane, 15-foot AeroDream iPad dock. Check out the interview in the video below:
