Very disappointed in the quality of the Sonos Roam. I am an ex-dealer and part of the reason we dropped the line is due to poor support and the fact quality has dropped on both hardware and app. The latest issue is with the Roam battery. This particular roam was always charged on the Sonos base with a Sonos power brick. It stayed there when not in use and was used sparingly. One day it was just dead. No way to revive it even with support from Sonos. I wish they had would stand behind their product but the only option is to receive a 30% credit….which means they continue to profit on the sale of the replacement since dealer cost is MSRP less 30%. No longer the high quality company they once were!
Earlier this week I was leaving from the gym around 4am when I was attacked by two transient young men when the first perp attacked me the other climbed into my vehicle and swiped a good bounty of my belongings amongst them I'm pained to say was my Sonos move I worked an entire year of overtime to buy this wonderful device and to have it ripped from my possession in such a nasty traumatic filled rush is so debilitating and now I can't rest while listening to my music or at least have a negative reminder it's out there somewhere in some encampment. Sorry to sound so why me but really wish I had some sort of location service
I'm surprised by the use of a subpar battery in Sonos products, and it's disappointing that they haven't initiated a product recall or offered battery replacements. This experience has eroded my trust in Sonos, and I'm uncertain about relying on them in the future. Additionally, I expected more assistance from customer service. Long story short, if you are facing battery issues with ROAM, that is expected and you just need to live with it. Sonos will not do anything
Hi,I have a new roam speaker. But i think there is a problem with it.Every time the USB-C mains power is connected, First the bottom LED flashes red, then the top LED flashes white slowly, after a few minutes this LED lights up continuously. Then the device is visible in the system for connection, but you can't get any further than connecting and an update is needed, but every time an error message is displayed. Error 1008.That's problem 1Problem 2 is the doubt about the operation of the on/off button on the back.The device has been connected to the mains for more than 24 hours, so the battery should be charged.But without a connection via USB-C to the mains voltage, I can't get anything out of the device. Normally you could switch your device on and off via this button, but nothing happens. Even if I don't hold anything for a long time, ....So I'm at a loss.
Hi there I recently purchased a Sonos Roam cause it falsely advertises it works on bluetooth. Of course that is only true you have access to Wifi to set it up. Mightily PIssed OFF as I'd bought it for ROAMing around the world. anyone been able to set up a Roam without access to a wifi network? any hacks? Is it just a waste of money
I’ve had my Sonos Roam (bought at Costco) for slight over a year and the orange light is on.Originally, I had it on the wireless charger and when I went to turn it on, nothing happened. Then, I switched over to the wired charger and the orange light came on. I left it on for hours (over a day), but still nothing. I’ve held the power button down for 15 seconds, but still unresponsive. After spending over $100 on this speaker, just over a year ago,I’m starting to really doubt the quality of Sonos. Seems like their battery is no better than those on much cheaper speakers. Any other suggestions?
I have a new Sonos Roam and pleased with it so far but cant get it to connect to my laptop via Bluetooth!Both are on the same Wi Fi network, it is connecting to other devices seamlessly and I can see the Roam in the recognised Bluetooth devices, but cant get an option to actually connect it!Would appreciate any advice and thanks
2x dead roam speakers 14 mos/ 17mos use. The china 18650 batteries are junk. I guess the battery module is smart enough not to overcharge these lithium batteries to a thermal runaway condition and burn down the house. Never buy these speakers, knowing they are disposable same as the cheaper ones.Good job on battery control module, no lithium battery fires reported yet!!
I have two ROAM units that are both stereo paired as bluetooth and as SONO stereo pair when connected to my home WIFI.What I want to be able to do is to have the units remain paired when I leave my home WIFI network and take the speakers to the beach or other outing.What is happening is that the moment the speakers are disconnected or turned off or go to sleep and I have to reconnect them to bluetooth, they will NOT pair to each other so only one will play. I have tried repeatedly turning just one or the other on, but it won’t work. Clearly BOTH are connected to my iPhone 7 plus at the same time, but WILL NOT play at the same time.The only thing that works is to literally keep the phone connected to the bluetooth pair while I’m traveling to my event and HOPE they don’t run out of power or get disconnected.Anyone have any ideas?I have spoken to tech support repeatedly and they have said it should work, but it doesn’t.
Hi. I’ve recently started using a new mesh router. I’ve managed to hardwire all my speakers except the Move without problem. However the Move won’t use SonosNet. However i can’t connect it to my new network. I’ve tried factory resetting but for some reason it automatically reconnects to the old network and I can’t work out how to stop it doing so! Any ideas guys?! Thanks!
I just received my Move today. All set up and playing. Sounds great. I have both Port & Boost coming next week. Question. All my Sonos is on my wifi router. When I get my Port and Boost should connect my Port first before connecting my Boost? Is there a certain procedure to connect Boost when all of the Sonos are already on a router wifi?
I am away from home in a family house (different wifi network, geographically separated), but have bought a Sonos Move. What’s the best way to set it up? I want to be able to start using it, but then when I go home have it join the rest of my main Sonos system. Should I set up the move with a new/different Sonos account (email) at my family home, and then when I return home, should I factory reset the move and re-set it up on my home wifi + home Sonos account? Should I first set up the Move using the same Sonos account but different Sonos system (apparently one account can have multiple systems?). Then when I take the Move home, somehow have it join my home system (I hear the Move can join multiple wifi networks?) Is one better/cleaner? I don’t plan on moving back and forth between these two places, I just don’t happen to be at home when first starting to use the Move.
I recently added a Boost to my system, as the core wifi network uses a set of extenders and I kept getting the ‘wifi extender’ error message. However, because the system includes a Move - which apparently cannot connect to the Boost - the message won't go away (unless I power off the Move and exclude it from the system). Any suggestions? It’s super annoying that the system won’t function together properly.
Good evening, I’ve had my Move for about 4 months now and usually have it sat on its base. However, whenever I take it off to use it elsewhere in the house, the battery dies really quickly? For example, today I took it off the base (it hasn’t moved from there in a few days so should be fully charged) and into the room I work out in for about 45 minutes (of music play time). I then turned the music off and went about my evening before grabbing it 2 hours later to take back upstairs, by which point it was totally dead. This has happened on a few occasions and I’ve never actually attempted to have it running on battery for longer than that. Surely this isn’t normal? Can I expect that sort of performance or is it likely my unit has a bad battery? Any help appreciated before I contact Sonos! Joe
My Sonos Move will not reconnect to the rest of my system after we had a power outage and lost Wifi for a period. Wifi router has been rebooted and I have followed all the steps on the app. Note that I am using the S1 app as 2 of my 5 devices are not compatible with S2. I have submitted diagnostics, number: 725298348
I started my Sonos system with a Move, which was remarkably easy to setup and has worked flawlessly. Next I purchased the subwoofer and added a pair of One SLs (with which I created a stereo pair). Again, all setup could not have been easier and all components--including the app--interacted without even a minor glitch. All of these products, incidentally, we're acquired in the last couple of months. Two days ago I picked up my Arc from Best Buy and the only thing that works consistently now is the Move. The Arc works fine by itself, but the One SLs and the subwoofer will not connect at the same time. We have tried the app on 4 devices (2 IOS and 2 Android)--two of them don't even show the Arc. We have followed troubleshooting to the letter, unplugging/plugging countless times, doing factory resets on all components repeatedly, resetting the wifi router, etc. At no time in the countless iterations of this process would all components appear in the app at the same time; further
HiI just got a Move, at first all seams to work fine, but after some hours on the charging ring it just stoped working. The battery was flat and it didn't charge on the ring. Charling directly with USB-C works fine and it connects and play fine. The charging indicator on the app is only on when the USB-C is connected. I have tried multiple outlets (they all works for all other devices). I have tried to measure the power from the connectors on the ring using a voltmeter, no indication of any output. Any fix ? Regards Christian
Hello, I'm french so I'm sorry by advance for my english.I own a Sonos Move and I live in two different house (I change house every week) and I i bring my Sonos Move in my two houses. At first it worked perfectly, I could connect my Sonos Move in both of my networks. However, it's been more than a month that I need to factory reset my Sonos Move every week because it cannot connect the the new networks. Everytime I try to do the setup where I click on "New router or changed WIFI settings". Then it says to put the speaker on the charging base and click on the "infinity" button behind the speaker (what I do everytime I try). And then it says that it can deconnect my phone from my actual network for a few moments during the setup of my speaker. But after 1-2min it says that there was a problem while trying to connect to my Sonos and I don't why I can't connect my Sonos Move to a new WIFI even that it can actually connect to 16 different networks.If anyone could help me with that problem i
