The speaker will be aptly named the Sonos Roam, implying that’s it portable.
The device is much smaller than their Sonos Move, the new speaker is 6.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 inches and weighs about one pound.
The Roam is fully waterproof and shares a similar design to Logitech’s UE Boom 3 speaker.
Like the Move, the Roam will have Wi-Fi, to use with your existing Sonos system and Bluetooth. You can use the Roam as part of a multi-room audio system.
There are also built-in mics hands-free for voice controls for Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa. The speaker supports AirPlay 2 and two speakers can be put into a stereo pair when on Wi-Fi.
Battery life is around 10 hours and uses USB-C. There will be an optional wireless charging dock that retails for $49 USD.
The Sonos Roam will retail for $169 USD (around $214 CAD) and comes in black and white colour options. It’s set to be unveiled at Sonos’ event next week and will ship in April.
