  • Sonos launches Roam 2, an improved version of its portable speaker.
  • Key features include enhanced controls, quick setup, automatic tuning, 10-hour battery life, and waterproofing.
  • Available globally today for $179.

Sonos has casually launched the Roam 2, the latest iteration of its rugged and portable speaker. It features enhanced controls and a quicker setup process, hopefully avoiding some of the frustrating setup hiccups of the first Roam, along with several updates aimed at improving user experience.

The speaker’s design has been refreshed with a sleek monochromatic logo and new, discrete power and Bluetooth buttons for easier use. Instead of having to connect the speaker to the Sonos app on your home Wi-Fi network to play music on the go, users will now be able to use the speaker anywhere right out of the box via Bluetooth. That’s definitely a more portable-friendly approach in our books. For home use, the speaker can be integrated into a Sonos system over Wi-Fi.

The Roam 2 also features Automatic Trueplay, which Sonos says will optimize the listening experience in any environment, whether connected via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. It should offer up to 10 hours of continuous playback on a single charge and boasts an IP67 rating, making it dustproof and fully waterproof, capable of withstanding splashes, dirt, heat, and cold.

The Roam 2 continues to support convenient features like Sound Swap, which allows users to transfer music between the Roam 2 and other Sonos speakers. Additionally, you can pair any Bluetooth-compatible device with the Roam 2 and share its audio across however many other Sonos speakers you have. However, the Roam 2’s USB-C port is solely for charging and does not offer line-in capabilities like the Move 2.

The Roam 2 is available in five colors: Olive green, Sunset orange, Wave blue, Black, and White. It will be available globally starting today, May 21, for $179.
