Sonos Roam announced: portable smart speaker

Much awaited Sonos Roam announced. It is available in the market from April 20 for 179 euros online and through participating dealers.

The Sonos Roam connects simultaneously via WiFi and Bluetooth. When you listen at home, Roam connects to your system and streams via WiFi. When you go out, it automatically switches to bluetooth to connect to your mobile device. With the new Sound Swap feature, you can hold the play / pause button on the speaker to switch the music to the closest speaker in your Sonos system at home.

This is Sonos Roam

This way you can easily move the music from one room to another. The connectivity options also allow bluetooth streaming for the rest of the system; With the Sonos app, all Sonos speakers can be grouped with Roam when streaming via bluetooth. Roam works with more than a hundred streaming services, including Sonos Radio, and can be easily controlled with the Sonos app, your voice via the Google Assistant, Apple AirPlay 2 or directly from your favorite streaming services and apps like Spotify.

The Sonos Roam should produce a rich and detailed sound, thanks to its acoustic architecture, which sounds just as clear, deep and full as you would expect from a larger speaker. Automatic Trueplay tuning is now also available when streaming via bluetooth (but also wifi of course).

Roam is available in Shadow Black and Lunar White. Thanks to the triangular shape and the soft profile, you can easily grasp it. The speaker is dust resistant and completely waterproof and has an ip67 rating. The silicone end caps protect against drops and bumps. The Sonos Roam’s battery lasts up to ten hours on a single charge. In addition, the battery retains its charge for ten days if the speaker is not used. You can charge it with the included USB-C cable, but you can also connect it to the – sold separately – special magnetic wireless charger from Sonos, or a wireless Qi-certified charger.
