Ikea is quite literally turning up the volume on its technology offerings: The company has been exploring recent experiments with home automation, and has also announced two partnerships with speaker entertainment companies Sonos and Teenage Engineering. So, it looks like everyone’s favorite Scandi retailer is expanding its selection of gadgets for your home. The brand's most recent feat? Banishing those fights over the aux cord.
Ikea has just released its very own Bluetooth speaker: Introducing the Eneby. It boasts a sleek design and is available in two sizes (8x8 inches and 12x12 inches) and two neutral color choices for the most convenient and stylish of jam sessions.
We all know Ikea does minimal, Scandinavian style best, and these speakers are no exception. These chic offerings don't even have any buttons: The one feature aside from the speaker and front cloth itself is a singular knob that controls volume. But one of the best parts is the fact that the speakers are said to be able to pair with up to eight devices. However, they also have 3.5 mm aux cable capabilities for those who still like to listen to music the old-school way. See? Versatile and on-trend.
The simple system retails for $49 or $89 (depending on the selected size), and can be mounted on stands or wall brackets you can buy separately, or placed in the Kallax or Eket shelving systems. Plus, if you opt for the smaller 8-inch model, the speaker comes with a handle for maximum portability. You can also buy a battery pack for an extra $20 that is said to keep the Eneby running for eight to 10 hours longer.
The company’s website boasts “a clear and powerful sound experience" with these speakers—and if that's any indication of the future, Ikea's about to become a one-stop shop for all your home and technology needs.
