Sonos Launches Enhanced Roam 2 Speaker with Simplified Bluetooth Pairing and Stylish New Design

Sonos has introduced the second generation of its smallest portable speaker, the Sonos Roam 2 with several significant enhancements in design and functionality.

A key upgrade in the Roam 2 is the streamlined Bluetooth pairing process. Unlike the original model, which required initial setup on a home Wi-Fi network using the Sonos app, the Roam 2 allows direct Bluetooth pairing straight out of the box. This change enables users to start listening to their music immediately, eliminating additional steps. A new dedicated Bluetooth pairing button on the back of the speaker replaces the previous multi-functional power button, making the process more intuitive and user-friendly.

In terms of design, the Roam 2 retains its compact form factor but features aesthetic improvements. The Sonos logo is now monochromatic, blending seamlessly with the speaker’s color for a more understated look. It is available in five colors: Olive, Sunset, Wave, Black, and White, offering more variety compared to the original Roam, which had only two color options.

The Roam 2 continues to offer an IP67 rating for dust and water resistance, ensuring it can withstand harsh environments. Its construction includes shock-absorbent materials, providing added durability for outdoor use. Despite its rugged build, the speaker maintains a sleek and modern appearance suitable for both indoor and outdoor settings.

Sonos has optimized the battery life of the Roam 2, providing up to 10 hours of continuous playback on a single charge, consistent with the original model. This makes it a reliable companion for extended listening sessions, whether at home or on the go.

The internal driver layout remains the same, featuring one tweeter and one midwoofer, delivering the high-quality sound Sonos is known for. The speaker supports Trueplay, which automatically adjusts the audio to suit the surrounding environment, ensuring optimal sound performance. Additionally, the Roam 2 includes the Sound Swap feature, allowing users to seamlessly transfer audio between any Sonos speakers within their system.
