Ikea Preps ‘Eneby’ Wireless Bluetooth Speakers, FCC Filing Shows
After launching smart ZigBee lighting controls, Ikea moves on to wireless speakers, according to an FCC filing showing Bluetooth-enabled models in two sizes.
Alongside inexpensive dresser drawers, pillows and complete kitchens, Ikea of Sweden AB may be showing wireless speakers under the brand Eneby, according to an FCC filing showing the product user manuals. The boxy Bluetooth speakers -- no photo is shown at this time -- seems fairly unremarkable.
The smaller Eneby 20 measures about 8" x 8" x 3" and features an optional battery back that can run for about 10 to 12 hours. The larger Eneby 30, roughly 11" x 11" x 4 inches.
Companion wall mounts and stands are sold separately.
The move into wireless audio follows several months after Ikea launched a line of ZigBee-enabled smart bulbs and controllers.
