TED ringtones now available!

Posted by: Matthew Trost

That catchy music that introduces every TEDTalk is now available as free ringtones!

Both the current “TEDTalks Phase II” theme and the familiar “TEDTalks Classic” jingle are available. (And, very soon, we may add a few priceless TEDTalks clips that passersby are bound to find interesting as they emanate from a purse or pocket. Tell us your ideas!)

It’s a great way to increase your random TED encounters and surprise connections.

Download them as MP3s and transfer them to your mobile device. Or, if you have an iPhone, download the M4R version and sync it to your phone through iTunes.

You can use the links on the sidebar to the right of the TED Blog to download, or use these links:

(TEDTalks themes were composed and recorded by Michael Montes.)

    I’m using these for alarm tones now. It makes me excited to wake up and learn new things every day!

    LOVE the ringtones – but cannot figure out how to download. They open immediately in Quicktime and give no option to save as mp3. Help?

      You have to right click on those Ringtone links and select “Save Link As…” ( if you are using Firefox ) or “Save Target As” if you are using Internet Explorer. Then save them where you want to.
      Hope this helps!
