IKEA Vappeby Bluetooth speaker in yellow, hung in a shower

IKEA just made the ultimate super-cheap Bluetooth speaker for epic showers

Posted on

Inexpensive flat-pack furniture and quality hi-fi products may seem strange bedfellows, but IKEA has been wowing us for some time in the audio sector – just check out its record player collab with Swedish House Mafia, its Sonos-certified Symfonisk Table Lamp Speaker (which also comes in a floor-standing version) and its Picture Frame with Wi-Fi Speaker for starters. 

So what now – a music-streaming kettle? A solid-state amplifier-slash-egg-poacher? No. IKEA has added to its entry-level Vappeby lineup with a tiny Bluetooth speaker – and if it looks like a soap on a rope, that’s because it was designed primarily for the shower. The best bit? It’s priced at just $15 (which will be around £12 or AU$22 when it launches globally in April), and it’s available now in the US (opens in new tab)
