AeroSystem is a system of loudspeakers designed and developed by Jean-Michel Jarre for use with Apple's iPods and iPhone. Upon launching JMJ Technologies in collaboration with MyFab, Jarre revealed he had imagined a line of concept-products with a unique design and optimum sound experience through technology.

The envelope of the enclosure, made of ultra-resistant glass, allows the system to deliver extremely pure sound. From concept to production, AeroSystem relies on latest-generation technologies, materials and innovations, according to JMJ Technologies. “This technological advantage, combined with Jarre's expertise, allows AeroSystem to offer music lovers and fans the most demanding and accurate sound reproduction.”

Unlike traditional speakers, its electronic circuit signal processing has been specially designed to restore bass and treble for MP3 encoding. AeroSystem is now entering the iPod world as “a new standard of beauty and listening quality,” JMJ Technologies reveals.
