HARTFORD, Wis. (Jan. 20, 2015) – Forget singing in the rain; it’s singing in the shower that people love to do. In fact, a recent study found that 75 percent of Americans use their smartphones and mobile devices in the bathroom, primarily for streaming music or listening to the news.* The new Broan Ventilation Fan with Sensonic Stereo Speakers allows consumers to easily enjoy music or their favorite audio, wirelessly, from their own devices during their morning routines.

Designed ideally for use in the bathroom, the Broan Ventilation Fan with Sensonic Stereo Speakers delivers high-quality audio via most Bluetooth-enabled devices.

Americans want to be connected no matter where they are; however, they don’t always have the space or capabilities to have audio in their bathroom. The Broan Ventilation Fan with Sensonic Stereo Speakers addresses this issue by using an existing bathroom feature to blend in with décor, prevent clutter on countertops and storage spaces, and free up much needed bathroom outlets.

“With this product, we wanted to show consumers that bathroom ventilation fans can add more value to their homes and daily routines,” said Ann Roever, Marketing Director, Household Ventilation, for Broan-NuTone. “The Sensonic Speakers deliver brilliant audio performance from behind the ventilation fan grille, providing you with your favorite music and audio while hidden in plain sight in your bathroom.”

Sensonic Stereo Speakers are available in two configurations to fit seamlessly into new or current bathroom designs. The complete Ventilation Fan with Sensonic Stereo Speakers features a powerful yet quiet operating ventilation fan (110 CFM fan, 1.0 Sone) with built-in dual high-fidelity speakers that deliver high-end stereo performance while concealed behind the fan grille. Developed with the expertise of world-class audio engineers from  its sister company, Core Brands, the makers of high-quality speaker systems like SpeakerCraft®, Korus®, Proficient® and Niles®, the speakers deliver clear and uninterrupted audio for a full, consistent sound. In addition, the fan’s housing depth and metal construction help to deliver enhanced acoustics that mimic a concert hall experience.

The Broan-NuTone Sensonic Speaker Kit, which has the same high-end audio quality performance as the Broan Ventilation Fan with Sensonic Stereo Speakers can be easily retrofitted to most Broan or NuTone QT Series ventilation fans installed in homes today.** Both configurations provide wireless Bluetooth technology to quickly and conveniently connect to Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops, for unbeatable audio entertainment.
