The Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi and Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi Assist are two new vanity mirrors from simplehuman, both integrating a smart AirPlay 2 speaker for daily routines.

Both of the new vanity mirrors use simplehuman's own tru-lux lighting system with 95 CRI (color rendering index) to help mimic natural sunlight. They also offer subtler color hues such as candlelight and nightlight for lighting the room but promoting better sleep by cutting out blue light.

"We successfully designed our first generation of mirrors by creating the best, most color-correct view," said simplehuman CEO and Founder Frank Yang.

Baked in are custom Danish-designed 2.5-inch drivers for true Hi-Fi sound. Music can be played over Bluetooth or through Apple's AirPlay 2 for better performance.

Using the simplehuman app, alarms can be set and the light can be tweaked. Google Assistant works with the slightly pricier Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi assist for hands-free audio commands.

The Sensor Mirror Hi-fi and the Sensor Mirror Hi-Fi Assist will be available starting in spring 2019 for $350 and $400 respectively.
