Want to brighten up that living room or home office? There are plenty of smart LED light bulbs currently available. However, if you want something that will truly transform those surroundings, take a peek at Ion Audio’s Sound Shine.
The Sound Shine is a product that combines a smart bulb with a wireless speaker. That means you can tweak lighting levels, but also rock out—all while using the same product.
Ion Audio has made Sound Shine LED light bulbs insanely easy to install. All you need to do is screw the bulb into any standard light socket. Then, connect your smartphone, tablet or computer to the bulb using the Sound Shine’s built-in Bluetooth support.
That wireless link will allow you to stream digital music you have stored on your portable, as well as streaming services such as Spotify and Pandora. You can even stream games and Netflix selections!
Because the Sound Shine uses Bluetooth technology, you won’t be able to control lighting remotely from the office or while on vacation. Instead, these LED light bulbs can be paired with devices up to 30 feet away. Speaking of pairing, you can also pair one Sound Shine with another for a stereo listening experience.
Each Sound Shine can deliver white light that’s equivalent to a 60-watt bulb. Ion Audio has also designed an app for iOS and Android devices, which allows users to manage media, as well as dim and power lighting.
“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.”
Ion Audio is currently selling Sound Shine LED light bulbs for $69.99 each or $129.99 per pair.
