How to pre-order the new Sonos Roam portable speaker

Sonos's latest speaker is its most intriguing portable yet.

At a virtual event, Sonos’ product team laid out the biggest benefits of Roam, starting with its price point. While $170 may sound a bit expensive for a portable speaker, it’s a fraction of what you’ll pay for Sonos’ previous portable, the Move, and the Roam is seemingly a lot more versatile than its larger sibling, to boot.

That versatility starts with a slimmed-down design and a truckload of handy features, including IP67 dust and water resistance, meaning that like a lot of portable speakers these days, the speaker can actually be submerged in shallow water for up to 30 minutes. It also offers a solid (if not amazing) 10 hours of playback time per charge; support for Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple AirPlay 2; Qi-compatible wireless charging; and a sleek design that optimizes playback for both horizontal and vertical speaker orientations.

Speaking of audio optimization, unlike the Sonos Move, Sonos says the Roam will constantly optimize its sound for any room whether it’s using Bluetooth or WiFi.

We’ll see if and when those hiccups occur when we actually get the chance to test the speaker soon. But if you’re already sold, you can pre-order the Sonos Roam now ahead of its April release at the link below.
