Available on September 12th, Sonos One SL is the essential speaker for music and more. Sonos One SL has the same sound and many of the same great features as Sonos One, only without the built-in microphones, giving you the choice to add voice into your system or not.



Sonos One SL delivers rich, room-filling sound in a compact size. It features two Class-D amplifiers perfectly tuned to its unique acoustic architecture, powering a mid-range woofer and a tweeter.

Control it with the Sonos app, Apple AirPlay 2, and more. You can still control One SL with your voice when you wirelessly connect it to a voice-enabled device, such as a Sonos One, Sonos Beam, Amazon Echo Dot or Google Home Mini. Only where these services are available with Sonos.

The compact design fits just about any space. Put it on your kitchen countertop or tuck it away on your office bookshelf. Pair two Sonos One SL speakers, or a One SL and a Sonos One, to get stereo sound or for rear surround speakers in a 5.1 set-up.


More details on Sonos One SL:
  • Stream music to One SL with the Sonos app or Apple AirPlay 2.
  • Use Trueplay with an iOS device to tune the speaker to sound great no matter where it’s placed.
  • Capacitive touch controls on top let you tap and swipe to play, pause, skip tracks, adjust the volume, and group rooms.
Pre-order today on Sonos.com in stunning all black or all white for $179 US (€199 EUR), available worldwide starting September 12th.

Hmmm... so if I understand correctly, we have a Play:1 a One and a One SL? I have to figure this one out, the 'One' product line is not very clear to me.

The SL is replacing the Play:1
So, is the OneSL just a new version of the Play:1? The difference being that it CAN stereo pair with the Sonos One, where the old Play:1 could not?

A feature chart, showing the differences between the Play1, Sonos One, and One SL would certainly be helpful.

I like this product. I have several places where I bought a One, but don't need/want the voice crap. Would have saved me a few bucks.

Then again, I have some Play:1's around and they're fine too. 😎

As someone who was looking to add 2 rear speakers for a 5.1 home cinema and preferred the One's aesthetic to the Play 1, these are welcome addition.

I'll buy a pair of these. I've given up on voice assistants from a sonos device anyway. I'd rather connect a dot to the speaker.
As a non voice user, I was very excited to see this product released!
