Any home will benefit from a smart speaker, and if you’re thinking of buying one, the good news is that Black Friday deals have started arriving early this year. If you want to look around for offers that may catch your eye, there’s no better place to start than with Best Buy Black Friday deals. You also don’t have to wait until November 27 to enjoy a discount on a smart speaker as the Sonos Five is part of the one-day Best Buy Treat Yourself Black Friday Sale, where it is being sold for $400, down $100 from its original price of $500, in an offer that expires at midnight.

Sonos is a trusted name that’s rising in popularity within the smart speaker space with products such as the Sonos One. The Sonos Five is the Sonos One’s more powerful brother, with three high-excursion woofers, three tweeters, and six driver amplifiers, all working together to create sound of the highest quality. The speaker also features Trueplay technology, which tunes the audio according to the acoustics of where the Five is located.

You can wirelessly connect the Sonos Five to voice-enabled devices like an Amazon Echo or Google Home so that you have hands-free control of your music, and you can also stream directly from your iPhone or iPad as the smart speaker supports Apple’s AirPlay 2. If you prefer to do things manually, you can play, pause, and skip tracks by tapping or swiping on the capacitive touch controls at the top of the Sonos Five.

If you want to upgrade your home with the Sonos Five, the smart speaker is currently available in the one-day Best Buy Treat Yourself Black Friday Sale for only $400, for a $100 discount from its original price of $500. The offer is only available until midnight, so you should click on that Buy Now button as soon as you can. You won’t have to worry about missing out on a better offer if you buy the Sonos Five now, as Best Buy’s Black Friday Price Guarantee will give you a refund of the price difference if the smart speaker’s price dips even lower until November 28.

If you're thinking about taking advantage of Bluetooth speaker deals, why not go for smart speakers instead? Best Buy just slashed the prices of the Sonos One SL and the second-generation Sonos One, with the Sonos One SL down to $159 from $200 for $41 in savings and the Sonos One Gen 2 down to $175 from $220 for $45 in savings. Either of these smart speakers will be an amazing addition to your home, but you're going to have to hurry with choosing which one to purchase because these offers are only available for a limited time. If you take too long with your decision, you may miss out on both bargains.
Sonos One SL -- $159, was $200

The Sonos One SL is a more affordable version of the first-generation Sonos One, but it comes with most of the smart speaker's most helpful features such as the capability to play room-filling sound with its tweeter and a mid-woofer, compatibility with the Sonos Controller app so you can search for songs and control playback through your smartphone or tablet, and support for Apple AirPlay 2 to easily stream music from your iPhone or iPad. Two Sonos One SL smart speakers can pair up for stereo sound, or connect with a Sonos soundbar to enable surround sound. The Sonos One SL doesn't have a microphone though, which means it doesn't work with voice assistants.
