Waterproof Bluetooth speaker now available online

Rahway, NJ — Earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, iHome caused quite a stir when they offered a sneak peak at their new waterproof Bluetooth speaker, the iBN6. The smart design and sound beyond its size helped it capture a “2014 CES Innovations and Design” honor and an iLounge “Best In Show” award. Today the highly anticipated speaker is now available on iHome.com and select retail outlets throughout North America.

Cleverly designed, portable and featuring an iPX7 waterproof rating, the iBN6 is the perfect solution for an active lifestyle music lover. With an oversized rechargeable battery, the iBN6 serves up 14+ hours of use, or even emergency mobile device charging via its universal USB port. The versatile speaker also allows easy, seamless connectivity with Bluetooth pairing, as well as tap-and-pair Near Field Communications (NFC) technology, making connection to the device a snap.

Pop open a drink with the included carabiner bottle opener and enjoy full command of the iBN6 with its slickly integrated buttons. Have complete control of the music or easily take a phone call with the unit’s voice echo canceling speakerphone. From poolside to mountaintop, the iBN6 is the perfect speaker for any season and outdoor setting.

“The iBN6 is a great choice for active lifestyles and those looking for a durable and feature rich outdoor portable speaker designed to thrive in both wet and dry conditions,” said Ezra S. Ashkenazi, President and CEO of iHome. “It’s one of the most innovative products we’ve ever created, packing a lot of functionality into a small speaker box and we’re thrilled to bring it to consumers in time for the late summer and early fall outdoor season.”
