Don't buy it.Harshad P.I love the design, and people get attracted to IKEA products of their elegant design. I have been using these speakers for 6 months. 1st of all it only get connected to Sonos app which is very much slow. Also when I am listening to the songs via Airplay, it gets disconnected after half an hr. guys please don't buy this scrap product.\1

Decorate your home with sound
You might think IKEA and Sonos are companies with completely different cultures, values and customers. But when we created SYMFONISK WiFi bookshelf speaker together, we realised we have a lot in common, for example a will to make people’s everyday better and simpler.
“We connected right away”, says Björn Block from IKEA, part of the team that went knocking on Sonos’ door. The shared values make the partnership easier, which isn’t to say it’s without challenges.
A creative mix
“There’s always a tension when you are two likeminded organisations, that still have different point of views regarding the final execution”, says Patrick Murray, Senior Director Global Business Development at Sonos.
But, friction is also part of the process.
“We challenge and stretch each other – and in the end, great things happen. Sometimes 1 plus 1 definitely equals 3”, says Patrick.
A booming result
SYMFONISK WiFi bookshelf speaker is one of the products from the collaboration. It can be mounted on the wall – or stand – horizontally and vertically, and works just as great tucked away or as a centrepiece in the room. And it’s as simple to use as the rest of the Sonos family.
Through the development, Sonos has made sure that the sound quality lives up to their high standards. In many ways it’s a perfect match, solid home furnishing knowledge with deep sound expertise. The best of two worlds to make good sound available for many people.
