The Sonos Roam is an improvement on the previous Sonos Move, with enhanced durability, portability, and affordability. While the Move is water resistant, the Roam is fully waterproof with an IP67 rating and can even be submerged for up to 30 minutes without damage.
In addition to its enhanced water resistance, the Roam also has several smart features, including Auto TruePlay which adjusts the speaker’s sound output based on its surroundings and a handy handoff feature that allows you to seamlessly transfer playback from the Roam to a wired Sonos speaker when you bring the Roam inside. At a lower price point than the Move, the Sonos Roam is an excellent choice for those looking to stay within the Sonos ecosystem of interconnected speakers.Current Specs
