Sonos One Gets An (Imperceptible) Upgrade

New additions said to make setup easier for consumers

Sonos is updating its Sonos One smart speaker, adding Bluetooth LTE, a new processor and more memory.

The improvements to the speaker, which first launched in 2017, will make initial setup easier, said the company, but consumers will not otherwise notice a difference between the two models. There are no changes to the design.

The second-gen Sonos One became available today. Although Sonos is transitioning out the older version, it said the first-gen will continue to be supported through software updates. During the transition, select retailers may drop the price of the original Sonos One from a $199 suggested retail down to $179.

When asked what prompted the change, a Sonos spokesman said that while the company typically updates products via software updates, “There are a few instances where making small adjustments to the internal components will ensure we can bring even more experiences going forward.”
