Sonos has been in the wireless speaker game for quite some time, and is well known for their high-quality pieces. They very recently released the Sonos Roam which they proudly claim to be “the most compact speaker on the planet.”
Designed to go anywhere, it’s perfect if you don’t want it to take up space in your adventure bag. But how does this new speaker fare? Let’s find out.
Design and Specifications
The Roam is a small speaker, measuring at 168mm x 62mm x 60mm. It has a lightweight design weighing just over 400g.
The color options are black and white, which both look sleek and stylish. The speaker has 360-degree sound which provides an immersive listening experience, even at a distance.
Connect to the World with Bluetooth
If you’re planning on going to a party or festival, this speaker is perfect for you. It has a Bluetooth capability, so it’s easy to connect your phone and share your music from anywhere. You can also use Spotify Connect to play music through the Sonos Roam.
What I love about this speaker is that it’s durable and portable. It’s small enough to fit in your hand but powerful enough to fill a room with sound. The Bluetooth range is good up to 30 feet which gives you plenty of freedom without having the be tethered to one spot.
The battery life is also great at up to 10 hours! That means you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy your music without worrying about running out of juice.
The one downside I found was that there weren’t as many features as other speakers on the market. However, for those looking for a more compact and lightweight option, this could be the speaker for you!
How Good Is the Sonos App?
The Sonos app has a lot of features that make it easy to use and understand. You can easily set up your speaker, control its settings, and sync it with other speakers in the house. The app tells you what level the speaker is at, so you know if you need to change anything. It’s also very easy to connect your phone to the speaker via Bluetooth so you don’t have to worry about getting out a cord or anything.
The Sonos Roam is an excellent speaker, but it’s not without its flaws. The inclusion of WiFi and Bluetooth allows it to be the best wireless speaker on the market, but the design makes it a little less stable than we would like to see.
It also has a lot of competition in this price range and there are potentially better sounding speakers out there. However, if you’re looking for a wireless speaker that can do it all and won’t break the bank, the Sonos Roam should be your number one choice.
