IKEA is the place to go when it comes to inexpensive, assembled modern furniture. But the Swedish company also wants to be your home gadget provider.
With this in mind, IKEA has recently released a lineup of Bluetooth speakers called the Eneby. The products are available in two sizes: an 8 x 8-inch model and a 12 x 12-inch one. Obviously, the smaller version is meant to cater to those who need something more portable, so it comes with a handle.
Your next Bluetooth speaker is waiting for you at IKEA
Interested parties can choose between black or grey polyester fabric on black or white plastic. Because it’s IKEA, the design is minimalist. There’s only a knob on the front to turn it on/off and adjust the bass or treble.
The two Eneby speakers can be connected to devices that don’t have Bluetooth using a 3.5mm auxiliary cable. Users can also pair up to eight other gadgets to the speakers. What’s more, the Enebies include an auto-off function that’s meant to save energy when they is not in use.
The smaller speaker can be used with an Eneby battery (sold separately) for a total of 8-10 hours of playtime.
What’s more, it’s possible to mount these speakers to wall brackets or on a stand, but you’ll need to pay separately for those.
Note that the Eneby speakers are not smart speakers, which means you won’t be able to ask them to play your Spotify playlist or set an appointment.
Anyway, the larger Eneby speaker will take you back with $89, while the smaller one costs $49. The Eneby battery pack will cost you an additional $20 and the stand $10.
The speakers are not available to purchase online, so you’ll have to take a trip to your nearest Ikea store if you want one.
IKEA’s new Eneby Bluetooth speakers are so far available only in the US and UK.
