Sonos Roam review (2022): It truly is nearly as good because it sounds


And as soon as you are out of range of your private home Wi-Fi network, Sonos Roam becomes a Bluetooth speaker that could be paired with any iOS or Android device to wirelessly stream playlists, albums, podcasts, and audiobooks on-the-move.

Sonos Roam is now available in a large selection of colors: Shadow Black, Lunar White, Sunset, Wave, and Olive. Whether you are trying to match the décor inside your private home or bring a flash of color to your next pool party, Roam is probably the most vibrant speaker within the Sonos lineup. And if you should ensure this portable speaker matches the remaining of the house audio setup inside your own home, you may all the time go for the Shadow Black option, which is colour-matched to the Sonos Beam, Sonos Arc, Sonos One, and even the Symfonisk speakers in-built collaboration with IKEA.

The fashionable triangular design not only helps the Sonos Roam stand out from the crowds of rival Bluetooth speakers, but additionally makes it easier to carry – even when it’s soaking wet. That is useful because the Roam could be plunged into one meter (3.2ft) of water for half-hour. Even when you are afflicted with butterfingers, Sonos has used “shock-absorbent materials” to make sure the Roam can withstand just a few accidental drops. In our time with the Sonos Roam, our review unit endured a few tumbles and still looked brand-new.

In truth, our only gripe with the Sonos Roam is the 10-hour battery, which feels a bit of lacklustre at this price point. For instance, the similarly-priced MegaBoom 3 by Ultimate Ears can blast tunes for 20 hours between charges.

In fact, that speaker is not doing a few of the clever TruePlay tuning within the background, but for many who wish to spend all-day on the beach listening to their favourite songs …the Sonos Roam is not quite as much as the duty. Thankfully, Sonos Roam uses USB-C to recharge, which is similar charging cable you will find with all recent Android smartphones, Nintendo Switch, iPad Air and iPad Pro, and probably the most recent Microsoft Surface and MacBook Air. So, that can avoid wasting space in your suitcase whenever you’re packing on your next holiday.
