Sonos Roam review: Tiny speaker, huge value

 

The $169 Sonos Roam isn't the cheapest Sonos speaker, but it is easily the most versatile. We think it's an incredible portable speaker for the price.

Excellent design ; Lightweight and portable ; Totally water and dustproof ; Very good sound for its size ; Choice of smart speaker assistants ; Wireless charging

No Bluetooth stereo pairing ; Doesn’t work as a speakerphone ; Less battery life than some other speakers

Sonos Roam Review

 

The versatile Sonos Roam can easily be moved between your home speaker setup and the great outdoors, though you're paying a premium for convenience over audio quality.

Mono output ; Digital signal processing can overwhelm the audio at high volumes ; Not as loud as similarly priced speakers

Sonos Roam Review – A portable speaker to get you hooked

 

Sonos needs a gateway for new users, and the Sonos Roam is its answer. What looks like a regular Bluetooth speaker actually hides double the functionality: a portable speaker when you're on t…

Most affordable Sonos entry point ; Sounds great ; Easily transitions between Sonos and Bluetooth connections ; Qi wireless plus USB-C makes charging easy ; Rugged without looking ridiculous

Sound Swap and stereo pairing only work in Sonos mode ; Battery life falls short of Bluetooth-only rivals ; Price premium compared to Bluetooth-only speakers

Sonos Roam review: Now you really can take the exceptional Sonos sound anywhere

 

Small, lightweight, packed with great networking features plus your choice of Alexa or Google Assistant, the sweet-sounding Sonos Roam just became the portable smart speaker to beat.

Exceptional sound for its size ; Auto Trueplay now works over Bluetooth ; Sound Swap feature lets you “swap” music with other Sonos speakers ; Small and light, with a waterproof design

Slow wireless charging (at least with third-party chargers) ; Sound Swap doesn’t work across Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirPlay 2 modes

Sonos has been offering the choice of onboard Alexa or Google Assistant on its speakers for years now, and the Roam follows suit. From the Sonos app, you simply pick which assistant you want installed on the speaker, and the Roam does the rest, pausing...

Sonos Roam Portable Wireless Speaker Review

 

If portability sound quality are important to you, the Sonos Roam smart speaker is an outstanding choice.

Rich, warm, sound; Impressive bass; Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and AirPlay 2; IP67 water- and dust-proof

Lacks treble clarity at high volumes; Pricey for a portable speaker

Sonos Roam Review: Building out the band

 

Sonos has finally released a portable Bluetooth speakers and it's really great. However, it's likely not the best mobile speaker for everyone.

Premium materials ; Big sound in a small body ; Has access to all of Sonos' features

Doesn't float ; Sonos software can be a tad overbearing ; battery life is a little lacklustre

This is the perfect speaker for Sonos fans, for everyone else, it's just a speaker

Sonos Roam review: The best portable smart speaker yet

 

The Sonos Roam is portable, durable and competitively priced, making it an attractive Bluetooth speaker on-the-go and a Sonos system enhancement back home.

Lightweight, portable design ; Auto TruePlay works outdoors ; Extensive connectivity features

Doesn’t support multiple Bluetooth sources at once ; Battery life could be better

for sound-lovers that don’t want to feel like they’re schlepping their soundtrack. Save the room in your bag for snacks, sleeping bags, swim towels and other adventure necessities — the Sonos Roam won’t weigh you down.
