After weeks of anticipation, Sonos Move 2 has been finally officially introduced. It builds on the success of the original Move speaker, which was launched back in 2019.
With several improvements, the Move 2 sticks to the core principles of the Move line. That is, it’s a wireless speaker meant to offer you a versatile outdoor audio experience.
Now, when it comes to the improvements, the first standout is that the Sonos Move 2 comes with an overhauled dual tweeter architecture. This acoustic architecture allows the speaker to deliver spacious and wide stereo sound.
In addition to that, Sonos has turned the driver setup of the Move 2 to make it offer deep, dynamic, and, most importantly, clean bass. You’re pretty much set to get an enjoyable experience regardless of the environment you’re in.
What’s more important is that you get double the battery life, just like the leak from last month suggested. It offers up to 24 hours of continuous playback with a full charge.
For recharging the Sonos Move 2, you get a wireless charging base. Alternatively, you can charge the speaker while you’re on the move with a USB-PD power supply.
On the note of charging, the Move 2 can act like a power bank for your gadgets and mobile devices. It can connect to an audio source through the auxiliary cable and the line-in adapter from Sonos.
Another versatile aspect of the Sonos Move 2 is that it can act like a route. All you’ll need is an ethernet cable and a Sonos combo adapter. The speaker also brings support for AirPlay 2, letting you locally stream music through Apple devices.
Additionally, the Move 2 has streaming support with WiFi and Bluetooth. You can also get a stereo effect by pairing two Move 2 through Bluetooth. It has an indicator light that offers you the speaker’s current state.
Regarding the build quality, the Sonos Move 2 is ready for all your outdoor adventures. It comes with a durable shell and boasts an IP56 rating.
Sonos has also designed the Move 2 to withstand accidental falls, extreme temperatures, UV rays, moisture, dust, and other extreme weather conditions.
Moreover, the Sonos Move 2 features Automatic Trueplay tuning. Thanks to this feature, the wireless speaker can optimize its sound output by considering the surrounding environment.
Controls are refined too. The speaker comes with intuitive touch controls, which are elevated. You can quickly pause, skip, and play with them. Also, like the Era 300 and Era 100, the speaker features a user-friendly volume slider.
The Sonos Move 2 also saw some design upgrades. That includes a new Olive colorway along with the traditional black and white options. And for those wondering, the speaker has three Class-D amplifiers, a woofer, two-angled tweeters, and a mid-woofer.
