Following a few leaks, Sonos has officially announced their newest portable speaker the Sonos Roam.
As the name implies, the Sonos Roam is portable. Meaning you can take it along when you “roam” around, even if that’s around your house.
While the Sonos Move was 6.61 lb, the new speaker is much smaller at under one pound and the dimensions are 6.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 inches.
In terms of sound quality, the Roam has two Class-H amplifiers along with a single tweeter for high-frequencies and a mid-woofer for the mid and low-end audio.
The Roam also features automatic Trueplay technology that works wherever you use the speaker, even when playing music over Bluetooth.
The Roam has built-in mics for talking to Alexa or the Google Assistant, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi to use with your existing Sonos system at home.
The speaker also includes a feature called Sound Swap that will pass the music to whichever Sonos speaker is nearby. To use Sound Swap, just hold the play/pause button for three seconds.
Battery life is around 10 hours and charges over USB-C or Qi wireless charging (using the charging dock sold separately). The Roam is IP67 water and dust resistant.
