Sonos has long been the standard bearer for smart speakers that merge advanced technology with high-end aesthetics, and its Sonos Move Speaker is further proof of that. First released a few years ago, the Sonos Move became an instant must-have among tech junkies and audiophiles alike, for its big, bold sound, easy pairing and sleek, streamlined design.
Now, it’s easier than ever to get your hands on a Sonos speaker, with the brand offering a rare discount on the Sonos Move as part of its Black Friday sale. Regularly $399+, the smart speaker is on sale right now for $299 on Sonos.com. That’s 25% off the original price and the cheapest price we’re seeing online (for reference, Amazon has the Move listed at $387).
The Sonos Move Smart Speaker delivers rich, full sound, with deep bass and crisp highs. Sonos’ “Trueplay” technology automatically adjusts the sound based on your environment and the type of music you’re listening to, so tunes always come out crystal clear.
Where previous Sonos speakers only connected through WiFi, pairing the Sonos Move to your device is super easy over WiFi or Bluetooth. It’s also compatible with Apple AirPlay. Battery life is strong, at up to 11 hours of playtime on a single charge. This set comes with a charging base and you can also use a USB-C charging cable to power up.
What we like: while the Sonos Move makes a great indoor speaker, it can also be taken outdoors, thanks to a built-in handle and a durable, shock-proof case. The speaker is also rated IP56 for water-resistance, and it can withstand even extreme high or low temperatures.
Control everything using the Sonos app — honestly a great user experience — or use Amazon Alexa to control settings with your voice.
The Sonos Move discount comes on the heels of the brand’s recent launch of the Move 2 Speaker. Released in September, the Sonos Move 2 featured upgraded audio, an enhanced acoustic housing and up to 24 hours of battery life. You can pick up the Sonos Move 2 speaker for $449 here.
The cheapest Sonos speaker, meantime, is the Sonos Roam SL, which is on sale for $119. The Sonos Roam SL is lightweight enough to take with you on-the-go, but we also like it as a portable speaker for the bedroom, office, kitchen or dorm.
