Cumberland RI, USA (July 15, 2015)—ION Audio, a leader in lifestyle consumer electronics, today announced the immediate availability of its new Sound Shine wireless speaker with built-in lighting. Combining long-lasting LED lighting and a high-excursion full-range speaker in one unit, this remarkable new product simply screws into any standard light bulb socket, turning it into a powerful wireless speaker by streaming music from any Bluetooth®-enabled device. Sound Shine speakers can either be used singly to deliver rich, room-filling sound or they can be wirelessly paired with another Sound Shine (up to 30 feet away) to provide an exciting stereo listening experience.
Sound Shine was originally announced at CES in January 2015, where it won the prestigious TWICE Magazine Picks Award. The award recognizes the products that demonstrate the greatest engineering innovation and the most potential for retail success, as chosen by a panel of experienced industry judges from TWICE Magazine.
These speakers are ideal for any application that uses standard light bulb threads. They provide pleasing, white illumination equivalent to a 60-watt light bulb, yet their energy efficient LED lights consume only a fraction of the energy required by a conventional light bulb. Sound Shine simply screws into any standard light bulb socket—no batteries, no rewiring, no hassle!
The free downloadable app for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets allows you to control the dimming and trigger on and off for lighting, giving you total control of your media playback. All this makes Sound Shine a fun and practical DIY solution—simple and affordable—for lighting and music in any room.
As a result of enthusiastic customer response to these features and the TWICE award, Sound Shine very quickly became one of the most eagerly awaited new ION product introductions ever.
“This is a product that makes it easy for anyone to install a sophisticated wireless sound and lighting system in minutes, without getting entangled in an expensive, elaborate custom project,” said Wendy Fortin, Product Manager for ION Audio. “Our goal was to deliver a lighting and sound entertainment product that was simple to use and sounded great. And…. we wanted to offer a tremendous value.”
The Sound Shine from ION is currently available nationwide, for $69.99/ea.or in pairs for $129.99/pr.
