  • The Sonos Ace has leaked ahead of its launch.
  • The headphones are said to last up to 30 hours.
  • They can be used in conjunction with the company’s soundbars.

Sonos, best known for soundbars and Bluetooth speakers like the Era 300, announced last year that it would enter a new “multi-billion dollar” product category in 2024. Since then, leaks have revealed that this new product category would be the headphones market. The latest leak now shows us what Sonos’s first-ever headphones will look like.

Today’s leak comes courtesy of Roland Quandt from WinFuture, who has managed to obtain images and details about the incoming cans. According to the leak, the headphones are called the Sonos Ace, feature a 40mm driver, and has eight microphones for active noise cancelation (ANC) and voice control.

These headphones apparently do not feature a 3.5mm jack. Instead, it will come with a USB-C cable that can connect to a 3.5mm port. It will also be a bit on the heavier side at 312 grams. For comparison, Sony’s WH-1000XM5 weighs about 249 grams. But based on the images, it looks like the headset will have a high-quality build.

The Sonos Ace is said to offer support for spatial audio and lossless sound. Something interesting about the audio device is that it can take advantage of Sonos’s soundbars for a unique surround sound experience that’s controlled by hand gestures on the right earphone surface.

You can reportedly expect for the Sonos Ace to last for up to 30 hours. It takes about three hours to charge, but three minutes of charge can provide about three hours of playback.

This isn’t the first time the Sonos Ace has leaked. Just last week, a retailer prematurely posted a listing which revealed details and showed the device costs €403.58, which is around $430.
