Sonos Move review: Great outdoors

 

Sonos' first Bluetooth speaker was made for life outdoors, and can power a pool party single-handedly. But is it worth the investment? Here's our full review.

Superb build quality ; Integration with Sonos systems ; Sounds especially good outdoors ; User-replaceable battery

Sonos app doesn’t work over Bluetooth ; Big size, big price

The Sonos Move is a pricey portable, but it sure can power a pool party

Sonos Move review: house shaker, not road warrior

 

Sonos' first portable speaker is more comfortable at home than on the go.

Loud, full sound ; Reliable wireless connectivity ; Seamlessly integrates with other Sonos products ; Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant on board ; Sounds great indoors or out

Pricey ; Some significant setup bugs and headaches ; Too big and heavy to travel with ; 10-hour battery life is shorter than other Bluetooth speakers

Sonos Move

 

The Sonos Move is a powerful multi-room smart speaker with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice control, as well as a durable, battery-powered design you can use anywhere.

Powerful audio with rich bass depth and bright highs. Portable, dust- and water-resistant build. Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice control.

Expensive. Heavy. Sculpted, mono sound signature not for everyone.

The Sonos Move is rugged, portable, sounds great, and works with an app that allows you to tweak the sound signature to a degree. Throw in voice control with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, and there's not much to complain about. Those looking for...

Sonos Move Review: Cutting cords not corners

 

Expectations were high for Sonos Move, the multi-room audio company's first portable, Bluetooth-compatible speaker. Dangerously high, you could argue: Sonos says its users have been asking for a completely wire-free speaker pretty much from day one,...

Sonos style subtly integrates ruggedization ; Sounds great, inside and out ; Automatic Trueplay is simple and effective ; Long battery life and fast recharging ; Replaceable battery is reassuring

Expensive for a Bluetooth speaker ; Bluetooth experience lacks some of the Sonos niceties

Sonos Move review: Glorious audio performances at home and on the road

 

Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, indoors, outdoors, portable, and battery powered: The Sonos Move is the best speaker Sonos has built in years.

Fantastic audio performance, indoors and out ; Automatic Trueplay optimizes audio performance for wherever the speaker is playing ; Amazing range while operating over Wi-Fi ; Long battery life and smart battery-charging tech

Highly directional sound stage (it's wide, but not circular) ; No support for the aptX or aptX HD Bluetooth codecs ; Limited to 16-bit/48kHz resolution

The Sonos Move is a two-way mono speaker with one Class D amplifier driving a down-firing tweeter and a second Class D amp driving a front-firing woofer. Sonos has declined to reveal much beyond that, including what materials the drivers are fabricated...

Sonos Move review

 

The $399 Sonos Move is a battery-powered smart speaker and a portable audio beast.

($349), which also has built-in support for Alexa and Google Assistant. The stationary Sonos One is still a better option as an in-house smart speaker, but the Move adds a long-demanded dynamic alternative to the Sonos lineup.

Sonos Move Portable Wireless Speaker Review

 

The waterproof/dustproof Move is one of the best-sounding and full-featured portables available. It may just be my new favorite speaker.

Fabulous sound quality; Replaceable battery; Supports Alexa and Google Assistant; Convenient charging base

Mono playback; Audio input limited to wireless; No phone capability

Sonos Move review: Sonos just burgled Google Home and drowned out Echo

 

This is by far the most luxe, water-resistant, rugged 'portable' speaker (it's hefty) ever - and it's got Alexa and Google Assistant inside

Excellent sound ; Connects over both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth ; Impressively ruggedised and water resistant ; App supports numerous streaming services ; And there's Apple AirPlay, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, too

Unusually hefty for a 'portable' speaker ; Also unusually pricey, though you get your money's worth ; Audio takes a little bit of a hit when on Bluetooth
