Sonos Era 100 Review: The Best Smart Speaker Gets Even Better


The Sonos Era 100 offers excellent sonics, refined design and one of the best streaming platforms for any speaker.

Sonos Era 100 review: the new default smart speaker


This is how you follow up on what was already a good product. Over the course of my time reviewing the new Era 100 speaker, which succeeds the Sonos One introduced in 2017, that's been my consistent takeaway. It's gone up in price slightly — now $249...

Improved sound (now in stereo) ; Bluetooth and line-in support ; Privacy-conscious microphone controls

No more Google Assistant ; Rejiggered controls have a learning curve ; Line-in requires USB-C dongle

Even if it can’t go head-to-head with the $299 HomePod in audio fidelity — Apple’s speaker takes that victory — it’s far more flexible in how you can listen to music. You’ll get plenty of enjoyment out of the Era 100 on day one, which isn’t as easy to...

Sonos Era 100 Review


Balanced stereo sound ; Excellent companion app with room analysis and adjustable EQ ; Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity ; Alexa and Sonos voice control ; Supports most major music streaming services

No Dolby Atmos, Google Assistant, or Google Cast ; Underwhelming sub-bass

The Era 100 is a worthy starting point in the company's lineup thanks to powerful stereo audio, easy integration with other Sonos speakers, and an excellent app experience.

Sonos Era 100 Review: Stereo Sound Is Just The Start For This Smart Speaker - SlashGear


The Sonos Era 100 improves on its predecessors with feature updates where it counts most -- but for Sonos upgraders, is it worth replacing what already works?

Broader soundstage and more bass than Sonos One ; Bluetooth and 3.5mm line-in support ; Greener to run and easier to recycle/repair

More expensive than Sonos One ; No Google Assistant at launch

Sonos Era 100


Honest, full bodied, stress-free sound ; Unusually well carved bass, natural-sounding mids, and whistle-clean highs ; A great smart speaker with either Amazon Alexa or Sonos Voice ; No one does multi-room audio better than Sonos ; Bluetooth and Wi-Fi...

You might need two to fill your listening space ; Lacks the channel preset buttons found on some competing speakers ; Optional accessory required to get line-level input and/or hardwired ethernet connectivity ; There’s no non-smart, otherwise...

The Sonos Era 100 is the best-sounding compact streaming smart speaker we’ve encountered; by itself, as a stereo pair, or performing as the rear surround channels with a Sonos soundbar.

Sonos Era 100 Speaker Review: Versatile and Compact


Performance Features Ergonomics Value

Move over Sonos One—there’s a new kid on the block and its time has come. The Era 100 is one of two new products from Sonos, the other being the larger, pricier Era 300. The Era 100 boasts an array of features that address many complaints from earlier...

Sonos Era 100 review: Puts HomePod on notice | AppleInsider


The old Sonos One was a versatile speaker at an entry price that didn't quite match the HomePod. The new Era 100 speaker changes that with a more dynamic sound and robust features — while managing to undercut HomePod in price.

Sonos Era 100 review


As the successor to the popular Sonos One smart speaker, the Era 100 lives up to expectations and brings a big boost to performance and connectivity.

Even with Google Assistant support MIA due to ongoing litigation over smart speakers and voice control technology between the two companies, the Era 100 is a well-rounded smart speaker and a great addition to Sonos’ ecosystem.

Sonos Era 100 review


Sonos delivers a terrific step up in performance and features

Big, open sound ; Crisp and clear detail ; Engaging, pleasing way with rhythm, timing and tonal balance ; Vast streaming features; Bluetooth addition ; Excellent, easy to use app

Rival Apple HomePod 2 is more natural with voices ; Adapter for wired connection is an extra cost

The Era 100 packs in an astonishing amount of streaming and playback features alongside an enjoyable sound that’s bigger, more detailed and more open than before. What’s not to like?

Sonos Era 100 review: big upgrades, but a dangerous price


The Era 100 checks off almost everything we wanted to upgrade in the Sonos One

Excellent detail and clarity ; Much improved bass over Sonos One ; 3.5mm line-in option and Bluetooth

Bass can be heavy-handed at times ; Less audio improvement over Sonos One than expected ; Higher price

The Sonos Era 100 is nearly the ideal small and flexible speaker. It offers wide dispersion of sound, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, a line-in option, support for tons of streaming services, voice control, and it goes as loud as you could need it to. But it's...
