Sonos Move Is the Company's First Speaker With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Sonos Move Is the Company's First Speaker With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth”

Along with the Move, Sonos has also unveiled another new speaker called the Sonos One SL.

It's a smart speaker, too, with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa baked allowing for voice commands over wi-fi.

But fret not, as the signature Sonos design includes a nifty handle to help you lug this thing around with relative ease. Besides, the sleek oval-shaped "shadow-black" speaker is made to resist falls and bumps, as well as rain, moisture, dust, dirt, UV radiation, and extreme temperatures, which explains (at least in part) why it needs to be so bulky.

The Wi-Fi-based Sonos Move ($399) is a weather-resistant smart speaker that doubles as a voice assistant via Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant and incorporates the company's Trueplay tuning technology that automatically adapts the speaker to the acoustics of the environment it's in for the best possible sound.

The Move's battery lasts 10 hours on a single charge, and Sonos confirmed the rumour that the Move charges on an included base station.

The former replaces the Play:1 in Sonos' speaker line-up, and is supposedly identical to the Sonos One - just without built-in microphones and voice assistant support. The device comes with a charging dock and you can place it there to charge the device easily.

Sonos is also introducing the new One SL speaker today, which is essentially the Sonos One without the personal assistants.

Specs-wise, the Move features two Class-D digital amplifiers and a mid-woofer for the premium sound quality you'd expect from Sonos. That means it doesn't come with any built-in microphones, which will be flawless for those who want a little more privacy.

The Sonos Port is the successor to the Sonos Connect box, which some Sonos fans felt is no longer quite in keeping with the rest of the Sonos range's reserved aesthetic. The Sonos One SL has access to more than 100 streaming services controlled with the Sonos App, Apple AirPlay 2, individual music apps, and more.

Instead, the Sonos One SL is focused on delivering the same room-filling sound we're accustomed to from the Sonos One and, before it, the Play 1.

The Move ships later this month and is available for pre-order now on sonos.com.

Sonos says the new Sonos Move will be available starting September 24 for $399, while the One SL will sell for $179 on September 12, and the Port will be available for $399 on January 2020.
