The Sonos Roam is an even better bargain with this Black Friday price crash

Sonos had discounted its Roam portable speakers ahead of Black Friday and the Roam has just received another deduction on top of its existing one over at Amazon.

The SL model has received a 26% discount, which amounts to a £40 reduction to bring the Sonos Roam SL to £119. The Sonos Roam has also received another secret discount, dropping from £179 to the more affordable £124. That means there’s only a £5 difference between the two speakers.

That is the cheapest we’ve seen for either the Roam or Roam SL speakers this year. For more of the best Black Friday deals check out our round-up of the best deals still available.

The main difference the two speakers is that the SL version removes the microphones, so you don’t get any voice assistance from Google or Alexa. Some may prefer that change if you’re concerned about privacy.

Aside from that the Roam SL is the same as the Roam, with both featuring Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support so they can be used in the home or out. Switching between the two modes is as easy as pressing a button on the speaker, and once you’re back home, the Roam speakers automatically detect a Wi-Fi signal and reconnect.

Connecting to a Sonos network allows for multi-room control with other Sonos products, so the Roam speakers can be hooked up to the same ecosystem as a Sonos Five or a Sonos Arc to handover audio from one speaker to another or play music across all speakers simultaneously.

The Sonos S2 app also offers integration with music services such as Tidal, Qobuz, Deezer and Spotify, so music can be controlled with a single app. AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth playback are other options of sending audio to this speaker.

Battery life is 10 hours and Auto Trueplay is supported, which means the speaker can adapt its sound depending on the surroundings it’s in as well as its orientation (the speaker can play both horizontally and vertically).

We were very much impressed in our review with the sound quality, finding it to be great with voices by offering lots of clarity and detail, while the treble performance is sharp adding “a pleasing sense of bite and detail”. Its bass output is the most qualified aspect of its performance, lacking the same presence provided by some speakers but they also happen to be bigger than the Roam SL.
