Sonos Unveils Move 2: A Sonic Revolution for Portable Sound

In a move that’s set to elevate outdoor sound experiences, Sonos has just announced the arrival of Move 2, the highly anticipated successor to its best-selling Move speaker. Move 2 combines cutting-edge sound innovations with an eco-friendly design, bringing stereo sound to the great outdoors.

The Vision Behind Move 2

Patrick Spence, CEO of Sonos, expressed the company’s commitment to creating sound experiences that foster deeper connections, regardless of the setting. He noted, “Move 2 advances our commitment to immersive listening by bringing stereo sound to our most popular portable, featuring the same next-gen acoustics and design we debuted with the Era family.”

Superior Sound, Inside and Out

Move 2 represents a significant leap in portable audio technology. It boasts a complete overhaul of its acoustic architecture, featuring dual tweeters that deliver spacious stereo sound with crisp vocals. Whether you’re at a serene al fresco dinner or a lively poolside party, you’ll feel the emotional charge of a live performance.

But it’s not just about the highs and mids. Move 2’s precision-tuned woofer ensures deep, dynamic bass, even in outdoor settings where most speakers struggle to deliver. It’s a portable powerhouse that promises to elevate your music experience.

Customise Your Sound System

One standout feature of Move 2 is its ability to offer both Bluetooth and WiFi streaming simultaneously. This flexibility allows you to stream via Bluetooth to a stereo pair of Move 2 speakers when connected to WiFi or sync it with the rest of your Sonos system via WiFi to crank your party up a notch.

Furthermore, Move 2 offers an impressive 24 hours of battery life, doubling the playback time of its predecessor. Additionally, its USB-C port can charge your phone or other devices on the go, making it the ideal companion for weekend road trips or outdoor gatherings.

Sustainability Meets Durability

Sonos is on a mission to make Move 2 its most sustainable portable product to date. The speaker reduces idle energy usage by over 40%, incorporates recycled plastics, and features a removable and replaceable battery to extend its product life. This commitment to sustainability is wrapped in a responsibly designed package that uses sustainably sourced materials, zero virgin plastic, and is curbside recyclable.

Built for Adventure

Move 2 is designed to withstand the rigors of outdoor use. With its ultra-durable construction and IP56 rating, it can handle accidental drops, splashes, rain, dirt, and sun exposure without missing a beat. The automatic Trueplay tuning continually optimises the sound for its surroundings, ensuring an exceptional listening experience wherever your adventures take you.

Elevated Design and User-Friendly Controls

Move 2 is not just about exceptional sound; it’s also designed to complement your surroundings. It’s available in Black and White colour options that seamlessly blend with other Sonos products. The intuitive user interface, similar to the recently launched Era products, includes a capacitive volume slider for simple control. Alternatively, users can employ Sonos Voice Control, Amazon Alexa, the Sonos app, Apple AirPlay 2, or Bluetooth for playback control, battery checks, and more.

Connectivity Beyond Boundaries

Move 2 is all about versatility when it comes to content. You can stream audio using WiFi or Bluetooth, and the Sonos Line-In Adapter opens up new listening possibilities by allowing you to connect turntables, computers, or other audio sources.
