IKEA has done it again, adding another product to their already impressive VAPPEBY lineup. This time, it’s a Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker that is perfect for use in the shower or anywhere else where water is present. And the best part? It’s priced at an incredibly affordable $14.99, undercutting most of the competition.
The product design developer, Stjepan Begic, explained that the main goal behind the new product was to offer a versatile product that can be used anywhere, without compromising on sound quality. And it seems like they have achieved that goal. The speaker is just three inches square by two inches thick, making it compact and easy to carry around. It also comes with a lanyard-style cord, so you can hang it in the shower or take it with you on-the-go.
The VAPPEBY portable Bluetooth speaker is available in three vibrant colors – black, red, and yellow. And if you’re feeling extra fancy, you can even purchase a second speaker for a stereo pair. At 50 percent volume, the speaker can deliver an impressive 80 hours of battery life, which is more than enough for a week’s worth of shower singing.
But what about its durability? The VAPPEBY portable Bluetooth speaker has an IP67 rating for water and dust resistance, making it perfect for use in the shower, at the beach, or even in the rain. And with its silicone coating, it has a comfortable grip and a sleek appearance that is sure to complement any decor.
This isn’t IKEA’s first foray into the world of Bluetooth speakers. Their VAPPEBY lineup already includes an outdoor LED lamp that doubles as a Spotify-enabled Bluetooth speaker. This model has an IP65 dust/splash rating and delivers 360 sound, making it perfect for outdoor gatherings. Additionally, the Symfonisk lineup of Sonos speakers offers a bookshelf speaker, floor lamp/speaker, and a wall art/speaker combo.
