Apple Now Selling Sonos One SL Wireless Speaker, AirPods Pro Cases

Apple in the last few days updated its online Apple Store with new products that include cases for the AirPods Pro and the Sonos One SL Wireless Speaker.

Apple is stocking the Incase AirPods Pro Case made from Incase's proprietary Woolenex material, with the case priced at $30.

Apple is also selling a new Catalyst Waterproof Case for the ‌AirPods Pro‌, which is also priced at $30 and is available in black. The Incase ‌AirPods Pro‌ case is shipping out in mid-January, while the Catalyst case will arrive to customers in late January. Apple retail stores will have the AirPods cases later in the month as well.

Alongside the two new ‌AirPods Pro‌ cases, Apple is also now offering the Sonos One SL Wireless Speaker in its online store. Apple previously had a partnership with Sonos and offered several Sonos speakers for sale, but there hasn't been a Sonos speaker in stock from Apple for quite some time.

The Sonos One SL Wireless Speaker features AirPlay 2 support, which allows it to work alongside other ‌AirPlay‌ 2 speakers like the HomePod.

Apple is selling the Sonos One SL Wireless Speaker for $180, but the Sonos website has the same speaker on sale for $30 off through Sunday, so the Sonos website is a better buy at the current time. Amazon is also offering the speaker at a $30 discount.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with Sonos and Amazon. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

They don’t seem to be pushing the homepod that much anymore. It’s a shame as it’s a great sounding speaker. All they need to do is continue to work on siri and that is all software based. It doesn’t need New hardware.

Cool! Accessories for the accessory to an accessory of an accessory!

(iPhone -> AirPod -> AirPod Charger -> the case for that charger.)

Sonos is fantastic. Glad to see Apple supporting them.

And the SL series is the right single speaker to buy from them as it doesn’t have microphones—no Amazon/Google spyware.

Besides Siri being a disappointment, HomePod pretty much priced itself out of the home assistant market.

More important: no one cares about audio quality enough to buy one of these pieces of garbage. And if they did, they would buy the superior Google Max.

I bought one and love it. Do not care to use anything google, even if only MR posters think it's superior.

Wait, the HomePod originally had an EQ? That is my only complaint with it. It sounds bad in a large or small room. An EQ could fix the sound quality issues I had.

EQ is more important than that. If you have any kind of hearing loss, EQ is needed to bring the audio to a point where it sounds tight for you. Example: my dad worked in a factory and has lost high frequency hearing. I asked him to describe it and he says when he drops keys in a ceramic floor he gets a dull thud not the shimmer most would associate with this. This explains why, in his house, he has the bass turned off of everything and treble right up. It sounds awful...if you don’t have hearing loss, but for my dad it sounds just right. If a device doesn’t have EQ it locks out many potential users.
