powered up so these Bluetooth streaming speakers play brightly all summer long.

ION Audio, a leader in lifestyle consumer electronics, today announced today the introduction of two new self-powered rechargeable outdoor speakers, the Solar Stone and the Keystone, both with wireless Bluetooth streaming capability. ION recognizes that the demand for wireless outdoor music solutions is growing constantly. Old-styled “outdoor speakers” that need to be wired to the inside stereo and can only be controlled for volume and program selection by constantly running into the house is not what customers want.

ION’s new Solar Stone and Keystone speakers solve all the traditional shortcomings of outdoor speakers—and they go even further. First of all, they’re self-powered with on-board amplification, so customers don’t need expensive, complicated hard-wiring back to an inside system. They wirelessly stream music from any Bluetooth device, so the user has complete local control over music selection and volume. They’re both IPX4 water-resistant, so they can be left out in the rain, no problem. They can both be used singly, or they link wirelessly to a second speaker, forming a true stereo pair.

But the really amazing thing about them is this: they both have a discreet solar panel that keeps their battery charged all the time, so they’re always ready to go. No more plugging in the unit in order to recharge the battery. With Solar Stone and Keystone, the music is always “on.”

Keystone features:

  • 2-way speaker with 4-inch woofer and 1-inch soft dome tweeter
  • 40 watt peak system power fills your space with lifelike music
  • Wirelessly streams music from any Bluetooth device
  • IPX4 water-resistant so you can leave it out in the rain
  • Long-lasting rechargeable battery provides hours of uninterrupted music
  • Embedded solar panel keeps battery recharged
  • Links wirelessly to second speaker through TWS (True Wireless Stereo) technology
  • Multi-direction articulating mount for great placement flexibility
  • Cabinet shape enables free-standing use as well as wall-mounting
  • Remote control included

Solar Stone features:

  • 6.5-inch full-range speaker delivers rich, vibrant sound
  • Realistic rock design blends in anywhere
  • 20-watt peak system fills your space with lifelike sound
  • Wirelessly streams music from any Bluetooth device
  • IPX4 water-resistant so you can leave it out in the rain
  • Long-lasting rechargeable battery provides hours of uninterrupted music
  • Embedded solar panel keeps battery recharged all summer*
  • Links wirelessly to second speaker through TWS
  • Control panel on rear for easy access

“ION is committed to designing and delivering innovative entertainment solutions anywhere the customer wants,” said Wendy Fortin, Product Manager for ION Audio. “Our new solar-rechargeable outdoor speakers take the combination of user convenience and great sound to a new level. These speakers are all enjoyment with no downtime. We think this is just what people are looking for.”

U.S. Retail Prices are as follows:

Solar Stone: $ 199.99/pair, $129/single
Keystone: $249.99 pair (sold only as a pair)

They will be available in the Spring of 2016.
