Upgrade your smart speakers to Sonos One

The Sonos One (Gen 2) is one of the best-selling speakers for its superb sound, compact size, and built-in voice control.

The Sonos One (Gen 2) is on sale

Sonos One smart speakers rank at the top of my list for sound, ease of use, and smart features. This Gen 2 edition is the latest release, and you can grab it in black or white. The second-generation Sonos One is small enough not to become the focal point of any room but has a deep sound usually associated with much larger systems.

This smart speaker comes with Alexa installed, and it works with all your Alexa-compatible devices, so you flip the switch on smart bulbs, turn the thermostat up, and turn a smart plug off and on with just your voice and the Sonos One.

The Sonos One connects seamlessly with Apple AirPlay, the free Sonos App, all streaming services, and it’ll even connect with Google Home.

With a room-saving design, small footprint, and tap and touch controls, you’ll love the second-generation Sonos One. And if you’re in the Apple ecosystem, you’ll appreciate AirPlay 2 support, which lets you add other speakers not in the Sonos family to your speaker group and tell the speaker what to play and when rather than fumbling around in an app.


  • Excellent build quality
  • Apple AirPlay 2 support
  • Ability to use Alexa and Google Assistant
  • Great sound
  • Compact size


  • It’s still a big investment

Is the Sonos One the right smart speaker for you?

The Sonos One is a beautiful system with excellent sound. If you own a smart speaker with so-so sound, you’ll be blown away by this second-generation model. Add a second Sonos One, or a third, and you can play tunes in stereo or throughout your house.

If money is a driving factor in your decision, the Sonos One remains one of the pricier options out there, though it’s hard to go wrong at this sale price.
