Ikea has increased its line of products to include audio equipment, announcing its Eneby range of Bluetooth speakers.
Designed in a square format, the Eneby speakers will be available in grey and black, or plain white by removing the mesh covering. In keeping with Ikea’s practical style, the speakers are specially designed to fit inside the Kallax or Eket storage systems designed by the furniture retailer. Alternatively, the Eneby speakers feature a handle and can be portable, attached directly to a wall or be propped up by a custom stand also available.
At present, two sizes of the Eneby speakers are available on the Ikea website. The smaller Eneby speaker measures in at 20 × 20 centimetres and the slightly larger edition is 30 × 30 centimetres. Stylistically nestling in with the rest of Ikea’s products the wireless speakers are minimally designed, featuring just one turnable dial to turn the speakers on and to adjust the bass and treble. “Our speakers have a clean, modern design that makes them perfect to show off as part of your décor,” states the Ikea website. “Easy to use, their rich and powerful sound can be controlled wirelessly: just connect a speaker to your phone, computer or any other Bluetooth-enabled device and play your favourite tunes out loud — but don’t keep the neighbours awake!”
The Eneby wireless speakers sees Ikea further venturing into smart technology products, currently selling a range of wireless control lighting. The announcement of the audio range also follows the news of a Sonos and Ikea collaboration range announced at the end of 2017.
