LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Sight meets sound as simplehuman today announces its latest product innovations, the Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi and Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi Assist, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The two new sensor mirrors combine the best lighting with quality audio, expanding its line of vanity mirrors and signifying the company’s continued disruption in the cosmetic accessories category.
“We successfully designed our first generation of mirrors by creating the best, most color-correct view,” said simplehuman CEO and Founder Frank Yang. “The new Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi and Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi Assist models dramatically raise the bar by combining our tru-lux light with superb audio to enhance your morning routine — from makeup application to listening to your favorite music, our next generation of mirrors were developed to revolutionize your morning routine.”
Both mirrors boast simplehuman’s proprietary tru-lux light system with 95 CRI (color rendering index), which closely simulates natural sunlight shedding enhanced visibility on the subtle variations in makeup color. Both models introduce “night shift,” a first-to-market setting that shifts to softer, more-relaxing light to promote better sleep, in addition to “candlelight” and “nightlight” modes offering greater variation.
As for audio, the mirrors’ finely-tuned optimum-acoustics speaker delivers crystal-clear high-fidelity sound. Its custom Danish-designed 2.5-inch acoustic driver produces smooth, well-balanced sound that fills up the entire room. The connected audio capability streams sound over Bluetooth® or Wi-Fi for devices operating AirPlay® 2, which allows for uninterrupted texts and calls while listening as well as pairing with other speaker systems in the home.
Both models work in tandem with the simplehuman app, which unlocks additional features for setting alarms as well as increased control over sound, lighting and sensor activity. And the Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi Assist model works with the Google Assistant, enabling hands-free vocal commands of certain audio functions.
“The mirror automatically lights up when you approach so we integrated the Google Assistant as a second layer of access to easily get the weather, news and other useful intel with just voice commands,” Yang said. “It’s extremely intuitive – now you can start the day stress-free while getting ready with tru-lux lighting.”
Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi and Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi Assist will be available in spring 2019 for a suggested retail price of $350 and $400 respectively at simplehuman.com and brick-and-mortar retailers nationwide.
