CEO Patrick Spence has confirmed to investors that Sonos will be “focused on launching new products in our existing product categories” for the rest of the financial year. Since headphones would constitute a new product for the US brand, it won’t happen before October 2022. That’s quite a long wait.
That said, there’s still plenty for Sonos fans to be excited about. Since the statement from CEO Patrick Spence, Sonos has revealed a new product – the Sonos Roam SL. As the name suggests, this pocketable speaker has the same rugged design, water-resistant case, and the ability to switch between Wi-Fi streaming and Bluetooth.
The only difference between the Sonos Roam and Sonos Roam SL is the latter ditches the far-field microphone array that enables hands-free smart assistants like Alexa. It is also £20 cheaper.
