i2i music sharing device
Aerielle today launched its i2i Stream Digital Music Broadcaster, a device that allows users to listen to music wirelessly by streaming music content from any audio device. The company will demonstrate the device streaming CD quality sound for the first time at CES next week. "Whether it's friends hanging out and listening to a single iPod or the desire to stream music wirelessly to speakers in the home, the i2i Stream is the perfect solution," said Art Cohen, president and CEO of Aerielle. The i2i Stream is already available for $70, with 2-packs priced at $130.
The i2i is universally compatible with Apple's iPod, as well as other MP3 and media players. Each i2i can broadcast or receive music, and features a compact lightweight design.
Aerielle i2i Stream works with standard headphones or ear buds, and provide a quick way to stream audio content to speakers located throughout the home from sources such as laptops or televisions.
The company touts a 30-foot broadcast radius, and the device can broadcast up to three channels in the same location without interference. Seven color codes indicate the current frequency, and the device boasts up to seven hours of battery life on one charge.
"We've created a way for friends to listen to music content without the hassle of sharing ear buds or swapping MP3 devices," Cohen added. "With our one-to-many capability, friends and families can now easily share tunes wirelessly."
