Sonos speakers are synonymous with impeccable sound, a sleek, minimal design, state-of-the-art technology, and consistent innovation. The Sonos founders launched their first speaker back in 2005 with the goal of “helping music lovers play any song anywhere in their homes.”
Almost 20 years later, the Sonos line has expanded to include soundbars, popular portable speakers, home theater experiences, in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, and so many more rad offerings.
Sonos products can run on the higher end, which is why Black Friday deals are the perfect time to invest in Sonos speakers if you’re looking to upgrade your audio game.

How to choose the best Sonos speaker for you
Sonos is known for their superior, and cinematic quality sound systems, but which speaker should you start with?
We recommend considering how much you want to spend, how much space you have for the speaker system, and how you intend to use it.
Where do you want to play your Sonos product? In the kitchen while you’re cooking, outside, or are you trying to create the best sound for watching movies? Knowing where and how you’ll play your speaker will help you decide if you need bass, portability, or even a turntable set.
Sonos products range from their Roam portable speaker ($160) up to an immersive sound system featuring a soundbar, subwoofer, and speaker for around $2500, with so much in between. Once you decide the price range you’re willing to spend, you can figure out which products to peruse on Black Friday.
