Sonos Release First Battery-Powered Outdoor Speakers
Sonos is stepping out of the home with its new Move portable speaker – a durable, battery-powered smart speaker built for the great outdoors – is now globally available for pre-order from the company’s website and select retailers for $649.
Perfectly suited for indoor listening and powerful sound on-the-go, Move supports more than a hundred streaming services, multiple voice assistants, AirPlay 2, and more.
A full part of the Sonos system on Wi-Fi with the added range of Bluetooth, it is simple for users to play audio directly from a phone or tablet to Move for great sound on-the-go.
Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are built-in, so users can play music, check the news, control smart home devices, ask questions and much more, completely hands-free when on Wi-Fi.
To ensure an even better listening experience in all the places where Move could go, Sonos built on it’s tuning technology with the introduction of automatic Trueplay, in which the speaker tunes itself to perfectly balance the sound for the environment.
Move features a sleek, oval shadow-black design with a tough, durable exterior that will withstand falls, bumps, rain and moisture, dust and dirt, UV and extreme temperatures – featuring a rating of IP56.
Move’s battery allows for up to 10 hours of continuous playtime on a single charge.
“Our platform gives you the freedom to play any song you want, any way you want,” said Patrick Spence, Sonos CEO.
“Move takes freedom of choice to the next level and for the first time, you can take Sonos anywhere.”
“Move marks the beginning of a new era for Sonos – one where brilliant sound not only fills your home, but extends to every part of your day.”
Further building on the company’s smart system of speakers and components, Move is one of three new products from Sonos launching soon, joined by Sonos Port and Sonos One SL.
