Whether you're in a white boy summer or hot girl summer mindset, having a good quality Bluetooth speaker is a must. Sonos, as one of the biggest names in premium audio, has thrown its hat into the portable speaker ring with the Sonos Roam. This compact Bluetooth speaker brings all the great aspects of a Sonos audio system to a portable and fantastic-sounding form factor. It's close to being the ideal portable speaker, but a couple of shortcomings keep it from true greatness.
Sonos has just revealed its latest speaker, a new portable, Bluetooth-connected model called the Sonos Roam. But, if its $169 price tag didn't make that clear, this is more than just your typical bargain-basement Bluetooth speaker. In addition to the usual battery-powered wireless music experience you'd expect for the category, Sonos promises exceptional audio quality, plenty of features, and integration with the rest of the Sonos ecosystem for those already deeply invested in it.
