Preface by MusicLife Ltd.
Jarre Technologies®, founded by the musical legend, Jean Michel Jarre has unveiled its latest speaker system, the AeroSkull XS +. Uniquely
designed to arouse fascination and curiosity, the AeroSkull XS + is a monument to design, power and precision.
Optimal sound quality goes hand in hand with design at Jarre Technologies®. The AeroSkull XS + features two 3 Watt speakers hidden behind
sunglasses with an impressive 6 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.”
The AeroSkull XS + is compatible with a large range of devices (see Compatible Devices for details) and a jack cable can also connect to any
Mp3 player, computer or CD/DVD player. Bluetooth simplifies connection to any smartphone, laptops and any other Bluetooth . NFC devices
can easily pair the Bluetooth of their phones via the One Touch Pairing feature.
