Sonos makes it of our favorite speakers and soundbars— we tested them all and we haven’t yet found one we don’t like. These devices are expensive, but the good news is that the Sonos Black Friday deals are here (even if it’s not Black Friday yet). Through November 27, you can score sales on the company’s Bluetooth speakers, soundbars, subwoofers, and more. We’ve included the best deals below. And be sure to read our Best Early Black Friday Deals summary for more discounts.
CABLE tests products throughout the year and selects these deals based on actual discounts, not just the discounts retailers claim to offer. Products that are out of stock or are no longer on sale at the time of publication will be
crossed out. We will update this guide through November.
Soundbar and subwoofer deals
The Arc (9/10, WIRED recommends) is our favorite soundbar for large home theaters. It’s equipped with three tweeters and eight midranges to deliver deep bass, as well as full Dolby Atmos support that can bounce sound off walls and ceilings in a way that mimics a sound setup surround. It also has a tasteful and understated design, so it won’t distract from the aesthetics of your interior. This soundbar was on sale for the same price during Black Friday last year, but that’s the lowest price we’ve tracked.
The Beam (Gen 2) contains many improvements over its predecessor, including a slight redesign (Sonos replaced the fabric covering on the front with a polycarbonate grille), improved audio with support for Dolby Atmos ( with compatible TVs and streaming apps), a faster processor and an HDMI eARC port for high-definition audio. It also supports Alexa, Google Assistant, and AirPlay 2. For surround sound, you can also pair it with a Sonos Sub (an expensive subwoofer) and two other Sonos speakers.
The Sonos section (9/10, WIRED recommends) is a great soundbar for an apartment or small room. It is compact, allowing you to place it on your entertainment center or dresser. If you want to free up space, you can mount it on your wall. It delivers clear, crisp sound that will easily fill your space. You can adjust the settings through the Sonos app for the best listening experience.
We recommend the Sonos Sub (Gen 3) to anyone looking to add more bass. The third generation model offers better processing power and more memory. It’s also intended to pair with Sonos’ non-portable options, such as soundbars, speakers, and amplifiers. (It won’t pair with Move, Roam, Port, or Connect.) It’s expensive, but premium. This is also the lowest price we have tracked so far.
The sub-mini (8/10, WIRED Review) is tiny, but you can count on it to deliver punchy bass and clear sound. It’s wireless too. In addition to plugging it into your power source, it pairs with your system through the Sonos app. This is also what you will use to fine-tune the subwoofer setting. You can set bass and treble levels, adjust audio depth and height, set volume limits, and add surround sound speakers. It’s not as impressive as the Sub, but hey, it’s half the price.
Speakers and accessories deals
This is the smallest and most portable speaker offered by Sonos. Equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, you can launch the Roam (9/10, WIRED recommends) in your bag and listen to music on the go. It doesn’t deliver audiophile-approved sound for its size, but it still delivers pretty impressive sound. The dual driver system, tweeter and subwoofer work together to deliver bold bass and clear highs (without distortion at high volumes). You’ll need to use the Sonos app to control it, but you can also stream from major services like Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, and more.
The Sonos Roam SL is another lightweight and portable speaker. It’s got everything we love about the standard Roam, including great sound quality, 10 hours of battery life, an IP67 dust and water resistance rating, and Bluetooth connectivity. But it doesn’t come with microphones. Basically, you won’t have access to voice control or smart assistants. Also missing is Trueplay auto-tuning (a feature that listens to your space and equalizes the audio to deliver the best sound possible). If you don’t like voice assistants or think Roam is too expensive, it’s a smart choice.
The 100 era (9/10, WIRED recommends) holds the title of best overall Sonos speaker in our guide for its improved sound and updates over the Sonos One (Gen 2). It features large woofers and angled tweeters for true stereo sound, punchier bass and crisp definition. With a faster processor, the speaker also receives software updates longer. There’s also now a volume slider, a play-pause button (so you don’t need to take out your phone to control it), a USB-C input, and a switch on the back to manually mute the mic.
This is not the latest version of the Sonos moving (the company published a second generation model in September), but we still recommend it. That’s nearly half the price of the Move 2. The first-generation Move offers Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, 11 hours of battery life, built-in microphones with Google Assistant or Alexa support, and automatic Trueplay ( which equalizes the audio as needed). the environment). It’s been down to this level several times before, but it’s still a good deal.
The amp is a great option for those looking for an amplifier to power their turntable, TV, outdoor speakers and more at higher volumes. The front control panel is touch-sensitive, so you can tap or swipe for things like pausing music and adjusting the volume. The Amp also connects through the Sonos app and supports AirPlay 2. It doesn’t come with built-in mics, but you’ll have voice control if you pair it with another voice-activated Sonos speaker as the Sonos One or Sonos Move.
While the amp powers the speakers, the port broadcasts to an amp which then sends a signal to the speakers. Unlike the Amp, it doesn’t come with a control panel, but you can use the Sonos app to adjust the treble, bass, and volume. It also supports AirPlay 2. Like the Amp, you can also pair it with other Sonos speakers for voice control.
