ION Sound Shine Wireless Speaker Bulbs Win TWICE Picks Award at CES 2015

With Bluetooth audio and wireless lighting control with free smartphone app, Sound Shine wins TWICE's first annual award

Cumberland, Rhode Island - January 19, 2015 - ION Audio, a leader in lifestyle consumer electronics, is a proud recipient of the prestigious TWICE Picks Award for Sound Shine, a pair of wireless LED light bulb speakers with app control first introduced at CES 2015.


Sound Shine turns any two standard light bulb sockets into a pair of powerful wireless speakers, streaming music from any Bluetooth® music player or smartphone. Each Sound Shine speaker can be used independently to deliver rich, room-filling sound with your favorite tunes, or they can be wirelessly paired together (up to 30 feet apart) to provide a true stereo experience.

TWICE Magazine, producer of the Official CES Daily, began its first annual awards program, honoring products at 2015 International CES. The award "celebrates those products that demonstrate the greatest innovation, and potential at retail, chosen by the industry's most trusted brand, TWICE." TWICE judges visit the entrants' products on the show floor and rate their impressions, discuss their findings and pick those that have the most potential. Award recipients were announced on January 9, 2015 during CES 2015.

"We're excited to receive a first-ever TWICE Picks Award for Sound Shine. It's really a product that makes it easy for anyone to install a sophisticated wireless sound and lighting system in minutes, without getting involved with an expensive, elaborate custom project," said Wendy Fortin, Product Manager for ION Audio. "The award recognizes Sound Shine's innovative features and potential for retail success."

Sound Shine will ship in March 2015 at a retail price of $129.99 per pair. For more information on ION, please visit www.ionaudio.com or follow ION on Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter.
