SONOS has announced a new portable speaker called Roam. It’s their most affordable speaker yet and is designed to used on the go, with 10-hour battery life on a single charge, wireless Qi charging dock, waterproof for up to 30 minutes, and connection as an extra speaker for the SONOS family, or can swap to the nearest speaker by pressing and holding play/pause button.
The Roam also automatically switches to WiFi when you get home to communicate with the rest of your SONOS system, and automatically connects back to Bluetooth when the WiFi is out of range. Sound-wise, there’s two class-H amps, one tweeter, one mid-woofer driver and Trueplay system that automatically tunes the sound depending on its surroundings.
The Roam connects to the SONOS infrastructure that includes SONOS’s own radio with stations from the Chemical Brothers, FKA Twigs and more as well as integrating the usual streaming services like Spotify, TIDAL and Apple Music.
The SONOS Roam costs £159 and is available from April 20th. Find out more here.
