The Sonos Roam SL takes the top quality sound and style from the standard version but loses the microphones and voice operation, for a top value and versatile Sonos portable speaker. Ideal for where you don’t need or want voice control, such as when using two Roams in stereo, the Roam SL continues to be a premium portable speaker.
Still the smarter portable speaker
With the Sonos Roam SL, you get to take the sound of Sonos wherever you go. Compatible with wi-fi, Bluetooth and Apple AirPlay 2, this portable speaker works your way. Thanks to its waterproof durability and 10-hour battery life, it’s set for any adventure.
Connect your way – Bluetooth and wi-fi
Thanks to wi-fi connectivity, you get to enjoy the unmatched Sonos experience at home. When you’re out and about switch to Bluetooth for a direct link to your smartphone or tablet. Roam SL automatically connects to your home network and pairs with your smartphone/tablet, making switching between them totally seamless.
Apple AirPlay 2 for seamless streaming from your Apple device
Featuring AirPlay 2, you can stream directly from your Apple devices or ask Siri to play your favourites from Apple Music throughout your home. (Requires wi-fi for AirPlay operation).
10 hours battery life
With up to 10 hours of battery life, the Roam SL has you covered for everything from a day in the garden to an all-night party. To save power, the Roam SL switches to sleep mode when not in use and wakes in less than a second.
Wireless charging option
Compatible with wireless Qi chargers, it’s easy to keep the Roam SL’s battery topped up. For an even neater solution, Sonos’s optional Roam SL Charging Base (sold separately) magnetically snaps to the base.
Class-leading Sonos sound
If you’ve already got Sonos equipment you already know just how good they sound. If you haven’t, then you’re in for a treat. Smooth, spacious and well-balanced, Sonos sounds just as good whether you’re listening to drum n’ bass, rock and pop or full-scale symphonic Classical music.
Optimised sound - automatically
Helping further to get the best sound, wherever you are, the Roam SL features revolutionary Trueplay technology. Trueplay scans the surroundings, analyses the results and then fine-tunes the speaker for the ideal listening experience. Whether you’re indoors or out, the Roam SL adapts to give the most natural and realistic sound possible.
Tough and durable – IP67 rated
IP67 rating means that the Roam SL is waterproof up to a metre, for 30 minutes. This makes it brilliant on the beach, at a pool party or for just singing in the rain. The drop-resistant construction is perfect for life on the move.
Pair for stereo sound
Just like other Sonos models, the Sonos Roam SL can be paired up for stereo sound. Link two* using the Sonos app and you’ve instant, immersive stereo sound. *Note, pairing only works via wi-fi and so requires being within range of a wi-fi hub.
Enjoy the best ever value Sonos sound on the move, with the Sonos Roam SL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mez20 from Few glitches to update s1 to s2 app Had a few issues with using s1 app with my older system, i seeked out help on forums and got around it in the end luckily. Great product but be mindful to check that your current firmware on older systems can be updated as some can not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marylyn Coosner from So much sound in such a small parcel. The sound quality is amazing. I bought it to play in my small garden which is on a busy street. My only reservation on listening to it in the shop, was would it stand up to the sound of the traffic. This was quite unfounded. It was no contest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sonoise from Small but powerful Great little speaker. Fills the room if you have it turned up. Neat and simple design. No problems with WiFi or Bluetooth connectivity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrisW10 from Little Beast Superb product…… Sounds fantastic outdoors and in the house. Setup on the existing sonos ecosystem was next to no effort. Don’t forget to add it to a new sonos setup or existing system at home on wifi, prior to using it whilst travelling (is a prerequisite)

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveAprilia from Instantly connected to existing Sonos products Great service both pre sale and after sales as usual from Richer Sounds, I’ve bought all my Sonos products from here and feel very happy and secure that assistance is only a call away should I need. Sonos Roam is a quality piece of kit which sounds full and rich inside or outside, waterproof and durable with excellent battery life

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Sonos roam for linking bluetooth devices I purchased this Roam device to link bluetooth devices in my home to my other Sonos devices. I got this working eventually, but it took a lot of faffing around. Anyway, now I can group the Roam with other Sonos speakers and play bluetooth, devices all around the place. The only problem is, it is all a bit erratic, so I often have to spend time setting things up for a particular listening requirement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by P Thorne from Good Sound From a Little Box Had this 3 weeks now, hooks up easily to existing Sonos and to the Sony Blue Tooth record deck I picked up at the same time. Main reason for purchase to play music at bbqs at the top of the garden. Not tried yet.
