Choose between 8-inch and 12-inch models in black or white.
In December last year, Ikea announced that it is collaborating with Sonos for a new line of products to make playing music anywhere in your home easier. But those products won’t arrive until 2019. Ikea isn’t one to ignore a gap in its product offerings, which is why it’s now possible to buy Ikea’s own take on the Bluetooth speaker.
Two Bluetooth speakers have been introduced using the name Eneby. They form part of Ikea’s new range for April 2018 and include an 8-inch and 12-inch speaker. Both will be available in black or white plastic with a soft fabric polyester front which can be removed to expose the underlying parts of the speaker. Up to eight devices can be paired with the speakers, but a 3.5mm jack allows for non-Bluetooth devices to also be connected. The knob on the speaker is multifunction. As well as turning the speaker on or off, it also intuitively adjusts the bass, treble, and volume.
The smaller 8-inch Eneby is the more portable of the two and includes a carry handle, but the 12-inch version remains easy to move around. Optional extras include an Eneby wall bracket so the speakers can be permanently mounted without taking up any surface space. There’s also an Eneby battery allowing the 8-inch speaker to be powered for up to ten hours. The battery isn’t an option for the 12-inch speaker, which is a shame. The option along with a carry handle just like the smaller model would be nice.
If the sound quality is great, then Ikea is sure to have a hit on its hand at these prices. More than one to ensure your home can have music playing everywhere is also something Ikea will be hoping you consider.
