Sonos Announces Limited Time Sale Offering Two 'Sonos One' Speakers for $349 [Update: Now Available]

Sonos has announced a limited time sale launching tomorrow, January 26 in the United States and United Kingdom, bundling two of the company's Sonos One speakers together for $349/£349. Individual Sonos One devices cost $199 in the U.S., so the company's new sale offers $50 in savings.

The sale offers two Sonos Ones for the same price as Apple's $349 HomePod, and is debuting on the same day that customers will be able to pre-order the HomePod in the U.S., U.K., and Australia. With two Sonos Ones, users can have a stereo pair of speakers to enhance sound, or play music across multiple rooms -- two features HomePod will not have at launch.
"Sonos One sounds incredible on its own, but the ability to have a stereo pair or have music in two rooms vs. one at $349 US feels like it's an easy choice for those who truly love music," said Joy Howard, chief marketing officer at Sonos. "We believe in freedom of choice and don't want to lock people into a specific ecosystem – it's why we support more than 80 streaming services globally and will take an agnostic approach to voice assistants as well."
Sonos One supports Amazon Alexa, and the company previously confirmed that Google Assistant is coming later this year. Support for Apple's AirPlay 2 protocol is planned for 2018 as well. Like other smart speakers, Sonos One can be controlled with voice and can read out information sourced from Alexa like the weather and news. Sonos launched the Sonos One in October 2017.

Sonos did not mention how long the new limited sale will last, but confirmed those interested will be able to take advantage of the offer on Sonos.com and through participating retailers. We'll update this post tomorrow if the company creates a new landing page for the sale.

Update 1/26: The Sonos One Bundle is now available to purchase on Sonos.com for $349 with free delivery.

Sonos feeling the HomePod heat ;-)


'HomePod heat'? You can't be serious. HomePods won't even be able to be used as a stereo pair or in a multi-room setup at launch, which is something Sonos has been doing flawlessly for years. If you give Apple $349, you get one speaker. If you give Sonos $349, you get two speakers. I know which one I'd choose...Sonos every time.

Sonos will not run scared... their device can be used for other things the HomePod can't.

That's a great deal actually. And they have Alexa, so you're getting 2 pretty good smart speakers for the price of one HomePod.

So it's just coincidence that Sonos is starting this sale the same day the HomePod goes on sale? It's just a coincidence that their CMO alludes to HomePod when announcing the sale?

Perhaps "concerned" is a better word than "scared," but don't be naïve to think Sonos didn't launch this sale to entice people to buy Sonos over the HomePod. Sonos wouldn't be doing their job if they didn't realize this and attempt to head it off.

For me, living in an all Apple Eco-System is becoming more of a novelty. I am beginning to just use what works and is best for my needs. Who knows, when the HomePod comes out it may the end all be all and I will have get one, or just another option in a sea of speakers. Either way Siri and Alexa functionality does not interest me at this point. Sound quality does.


I feel the same about the “eco system”. It used to be more of a selling point, but these days I don’t find that it offers much of an advantage. After Apple Music and the wretched iTunes Match service screwed up my music library I dropped Apple Music for another service. And I don’t miss Apple at all. It was easy to leave the eco system.

My Sonos system lets me use my high end in-wall and in-ceiling speakers throughout my house (using Connect and Connect:Amp boxes) plus I have a few Sonos speakers for rooms without built in speakers. They all work together and play true stereo - and have done so for years.

Apple isn’t bringing anything new to market here. It’s just their spin on a speaker. No doubt a lot of overnight “audiophiles” who never cares about “audio quality” until Apple entered the speaker market will buy it. But after that, good luck competing with Sonos and other systems that offer more functionality and choice of music services.
