First Bluetooth speakers from Ikea
IKEA launches its first Bluetooth speakers, they are called Eleby
The famous Swedish company, IKEA, continues to diversify its business and betting on the technology segment, where we have already seen its furniture with wireless charging panels, as well as its connected bulbs. Well, now they have an interesting new product, since for the first time they venture into the market of Bluetooth speakers.

At the end of 2017, IKEA signed a collaboration agreement with Sonos to manufacture high-end audio devices with designs that match their furniture. In these new speakers still does not intervene Sonos, since this alliance will bear fruit until 2019, however, is an interesting bet to go preparing the ground.

IKEA is launching its new line of ENEBY speakers, which are designed and designed to be placed on some shelves and bookshelves of the same company. They have a square design and come in two sizes: 8 and 12 inches (20.3 and 30.5 centimeters).

These are not smart speakers, so they only have a Bluetooth connection compatible with up to 8 devices, as well as a 3.5 mm auxiliary input to connect devices that do not have a wireless connection.

They have a detachable panel in black or gray polyester fabric, as well as a single dial on the front that serves to adjust the volume. IKEA has not shown the specifications of these speakers, but from what you can see in the images, we have a tweeter and two woofers.

The 8-inch version includes a carrying handle, which also serves as a support. In addition, this model can be fitted with a rechargeable battery, sold separately, to make the speaker portable, providing between 8 and 10 hours of autonomy.

The ENEBY 8-inch speaker is priced at $ 49 and the battery to make it portable costs $ 20. While the 12-inch version has a price of $ 89 to which we can add a support for $ 10 more, which will serve to place it on a table or mount it on a wall.

Both speakers will be available in the United States, the United Kingdom, Sweden and some continental European countries, although those who wish to buy them will have to go directly to an IKEA store, since at the moment they will not be available via the web.
