Swedish furniture seller IKEA has unveiled the first in a new line of minimalist Bluetooth speakers from the company.

Called Eneby, the Scandinavian-styled units come in 8-inch and 12-inch sizes, can be wall- or stand- mounted, and are made to fit in IKEA's Kallax and Eket storage systems.

The plastic speakers come with a mesh polyester fabric front panel that can be removed to expose the drivers, and a knob on the front of the speaker controls power, bass, treble, or volume.

A 3.5mm auxiliary output around the back lets you attach a wired device, while the smaller 8-inch speaker also features a carry handle and an optional battery pack for portability.

Up to eight Bluetooth devices can be connected to a single Eneby speaker at a time, so there's no need to disconnect one user to make way for another.

IKEA's Eneby 8-inch speaker costs $49 and is available in white, gray, or black, while the 12-inch model costs $89 and comes in black or white.

The battery pack for the smaller speaker is sold separately for $20, and you can also buy black speaker stands for $10 each that fit both sizes.

Last year, IKEA brought to market its own Apple HomeKit-compatible smart Lighting range of products called Trådfri. The range includes LED bulbs, a remote dimmer switch puck, a gateway kit, a motion sensor kit, and dimming lights.

Good for them. Fifty bucks for a BT speaker, and they already have millions of customers in the door? These should sell like hot cakes. The Masses don’t care about “audiophile quality” and digital assistants are still a gimmick.

LOL you can buy either seven of the 8 inch version or four of the 12 inch version or one HomePod. These things could be amazing with airplay 2. I hope the audio quality is at least pretty good. Can’t wait for the reviews on YouTube
If the HomePod sounded like a $10 speaker, being sold for $350, maybe you would have a point.
The reviews are saying it's like a $1000 speaker, being sold for $350.

The HomePod is the cheapest product in its class; and it's not in the same class as this IKEA speaker... obviously... That's like comparing an iPhone X to a $50 Android phone.

Not to slate these - they look nice, and plenty of people will surely buy them and enjoy them. I might even get one (for the kitchen or bathroom).

Ikea's speaker is designed for the living spaces of real people, cramped, cluttered, chaotic. They put it on a shelf or set it against the wall. BT, the lowest common denominator, gets the job done on Android and iOS. No assistant needed, it just plays music. Eneby even has an optional battery pack making it portable.

HomePod was designed for imaginary customers living in homes with multiple large rooms. It begs to be placed near the center of a room and demands our attention...hmmm...
