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

 

The Sonos Era 100 is a compact smart speaker with a number of key features, two of which were unavailable on its predecessor, the Sonos One. The first of these, and the biggest turnaround for the company's home speakers, is Bluetooth. Sonos has always...

Excellent sound quality Bluetooth adds flexibility Robust ecosystem

A little more expensive Competition offers better features Some compression on bass heavy music No Google Assistant

When the Sonos One debuted in 2017, there was nothing else like it apart from some tentative smart speakers which quickly disappeared. Certainly nothing as well-formed and enduring as the One. (Yes, technically, Apple's HomePod was announced before the...

Review: Sonos Era 100

 

With the new Era 100, Sonos finally wipes the floor with competitors when it comes to sound quality too. With stereo tweeters and a more advanced room tuning feature, this is a single speaker that easily holds its own with everything but more expensive...

Listen to your music in stereo! Deeper bass. Easy to integrate with all your favorite streaming services. Bluetooth connectivity included, not just Wi-Fi. Improved volume controls. Impressive room tuning.

The room tuning feature works better on iOS devices.

The Era 100 truly is a fantastic-sounding powered speaker, with crisp definition up high and a great spread in the midrange that keeps guitars, pianos, and voices from standing all over each other like they can on other all-in-ones. It’s honestly...

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: 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

It’s easy to buy a less expensive smart speaker like the Nest Audio, HomePod Mini, or Amazon Echo. Anyone looking for a smart home controller first and music speaker second will still find some appeal in those devices. But with the Era 100, Sonos has...

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 Speaker Review

 

The Sonos Era 100 released in 2023. This premium home speaker has a wide array of built-in smart features to make the most of your listening experience. Alexa support lets you control the device with only your voice, and through the Sonos S2 app, you...

Room correction tools. Bass and treble adjustments.

Not quite loud enough for larger rooms. Some compression at max volume.

The Sonos Era 100 is satisfactory for music. The speaker has some features to adjust its output based on your room's acoustics, as with most premium speakers on the market. Its clean and balanced sound makes it suitable for listening to many different...

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 review: Room-filling sound meets thoughtful improvements

 

Is the Sonos Era 100 the Wi-Fi-connected speaker we've all been waiting for?

Terrific sound quality ; Compact size ; Intuitive companion app ; Now supports Bluetooth ; Expandable USB-C port (line-in or combo adapter)

Pricier than the Sonos One ; No Google Assistant ; Line-in and ethernet adapters sold separately

A nearly complete package

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

 

Era 100 commanded a deep resounding bass resonance, but not quite in the same way the HomePod did. The HomePod's bass could be described as looser and more ambient, while Era 100 tended to be tighter and slightly more constrained. Part of this is the...

Excellent sound quality Support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, AirPlay, and 3.5mm input Can be used for music or as part of surround sound system

Taller and more expensive than previous One speaker Line-in and ethernet require an adapter at an additional cost

the Era 100 is the wireless home speaker to beat. It incorporates tremendous sound quality, abundant features, and a reasonable price into a compact product. This Sonos speaker should place tremendous pressure on HomePod. Era 100 generally sounded...
