Alongside the announcement of its new Ray soundbar and in-house voice assistant, Sonos, the American sound specialist, also revealed the arrival on the market of color versions of its Sonos Roam Bluetooth speaker.
We see life in color at Sonos. Not content with extending its range of soundbars with the arrival of the Sonos Ray and presenting its very first in-house voice assistant, the American manufacturer has also decided to offer its portable Roam speaker in more colorful versions.
So here come the terracotta (Sunset), blue (Wave) and green (Olive) versions of the smallest home Bluetooth speaker. A powerful and versatile product, but not necessarily the most prolific in the catalog, which wants to appeal to the youngest potential consumers, fans of outdoor listening.
The color to tip the balance
It must be said that the Bluetooth speaker market is extremely competitive and saturated. Behind the almost untouchable Ultimate Ears and JBL, it’s hard to find a place in the sun and to be the ultimate companion for outings with friends or evenings on the terrace. So you have to stand out and, out of the traditional choice between white and black, color can be an asset.
The American brand has chosen rather matte colors which reinforce the very elegant and qualitative design of the Roam. Inspired by lush landscapes, the serenity of a swimming pool or seaside, even by a sunset, the colors are varied and should appeal to as many people as possible.
In this, Sonos is close to the Bose mini-speakers which rely on less garish colors than the UE Megaboom. However, the Sonos Roam is not there to make its basses speak in competition, but to play versatility. Bluetooth, mobile, waterproof and shockproof for use outside the home, it can also work over Wi-Fi and be added to your Sonos ecosystem to integrate live listening. multi-room or in stereo grouping.
It also displays a good improved autonomy (one day of continuous listening), with possible wireless charging, and is also equipped with a voice assistant of your choice which can now be the Sonos Voice Control in addition (or instead according to your needs). ) from Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant).
