New version of the ultraportable speaker adds easier controls and quicker set up.

Sonos Roam 2 Portable Speaker

Sonos has just launched its newest portable speaker — Roam 2 — a revamp of the ultraportable Roam, now improved with easier controls and quicker set up. Here are some of the speaker’s key features:

  • Size-defying sound — Delivers the rich, detailed sound and bass with the clarity, depth, and fullness you’d expect from a larger speaker.
  • Refreshed design and UI — Includes a monochromatic logo and separate power and Bluetooth buttons for easy use.
  • Instant set up — As soon as you unbox, connect to your mobile device over Bluetooth and enjoy immediate music on the go. Set up on Wi-Fi at home to connect to the rest of your Sonos system.
  • Automatic Trueplay — Always tuned for the best listening experience in any environment, available on both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
  • Powered for adventure — Up to 10 hours of continuous playback on a single charge.
  • Ready for the elements — Dust proof and fully waterproof with an IP67 rating, so it can handle splashes, dirt, heat and cold with ease.
  • Five vibrant colors  Available in Olive, Sunset, Wave, Black, and White.
