Sonos’ popular Move has a new color, and it’ll send you over the moon

The Sonos Move is a versatile speaker that the company said is growing to be one of its more popular items (based on last month’s sales statistics that saw it grow to the top of its bestsellers list). Today, it is seeing some additional appeal added as Sonos announced its availability in a new color: Lunar White.

It’s a full inversion of the simple, understated all-black look for which Sonos has become widely known and is common in speakers from across the industry. This is not the first time Sonos has offered one of  its speakers in this manner, however, as all of their other current products are available in either Shadow Black or Lunar White.

When we reviewed the Sonos Move in 2019, we were impressed by its sound quality and versatility. As the company’s first Bluetooth-enabled device, it impressed with its long battery life, build quality, and weather resistance (it is pretty close to waterproof with an IP56 rating). Although it is heavy and rather expensive, we still found it to be a very good speaker with a wide variety  of uses. You can read that full review here.

Depending on your decor, the new white can almost disappear into the environment. In some of the images Sonos provided of the new Lunar White, it took us a moment to even see the Move. With the hundreds of speaker options available on the market, most of them in black, seeing the Sonos Move in a starkly opposing color is only what we can describe as “refreshing.”

In addition to the new color, Sonos also announced that all Sonos Move speakers can get an additional hour of battery life thanks to a firmware update. With that update, the Sonos Move can offer up to 11 hours of continuous play time before needing to be returned to its charging base.

Both the original Shadow Black and new Lunar White color options come in at the same $399 price tag. It’s not cheap, and as we mentioned, expense is a downside of the Sonos Move. But at least you can get it in the color of your choice without adding an additional fee.

The Lunar White Sonos Move is available for pre-order on, with availability in Canada, the United States, Mexico, and China starting on June 30. Sonos fans in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan will have to wait until July 7 for the new Lunar White to be available.

Sonos’ new Era 100 and Era 300 wireless speakers go all-in on spatial audio and Bluetooth
Sonos Era 300 and Era 100 side by side.

Sonos has officially unveiled two new wireless smart speakers -- the $249 Sonos Era 100, and the $449 Sonos Era 300. While the Era 100 is effectively a new version of the aging Sonos One, which it replaces, the Era 300 is an entirely new type of speaker for the company, with six drivers (including an up-firing tweeter) and compatibility with spatial audio formats like Dolby Atmos.

The leaks pretty much nailed it. Both speakers will be available on March 28 in 26 countries including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the U.K., Ireland, Germany, and Australia, with preorders beginning March 7.

C’mon, Apple — if Sonos can admit it was wrong about Bluetooth, so can you
Handoff between Apple iPhone and Apple HomePod second-gen.

For years, Sonos has relentlessly championed the benefits of Wi-Fi audio. The company even ran a cheeky (and hilarious) campaign showing how annoying it can be to use Bluetooth, featuring pinging notifications and phone calls routinely interrupting what should have otherwise been enjoyable music-listening sessions. Times have changed, however, and not only has Sonos added Bluetooth to its two portable speakers (the Move and the Roam), but recent leaks suggest that it’s considering expanding support for Bluetooth into its main portfolio of powered speakers too, starting with the new Sonos Era 100 and Sonos Era 300.

This amounts to a tacit acknowledgment that Sonos may have been too zealous in its past refusal to adopt Bluetooth audio, and I can’t help but think that it might be time for another company to rethink its rejection of Bluetooth: Apple.

New Sonos speakers apparently confirmed by accessory company
Rendering of a reportedly unreleased Sonos speaker created by The Verge.

If a document published by accessory maker Sanus is accurate, Sonos' next speakers will be called the Era 100 and Era 300, according to a report from Chris Welch at The Verge. Welch claims that The Verge had already learned from its sources that "Era" will be the public-facing name of the as-yet-unreleased smart speaker that he had previously reported on under the code name "Optimo," and that the Sanus document offers further evidence of this claim.

Sanus is a company that makes a variety of mounting solutions for AV products, including many Sonos models such as the Sonos Beam, Arc, and Sonos One. The discovered document, which was posted to the site, is entitled "Sanus Elite - Adjustable Speaker Wall Mount for Sonos Era 100 and Era 300 Speakers."
