What is the Sonos Move 2

The successor to the Sonos Move, the updated Sonos Move 2 aesthetically resembles the original Move though it has a number of notable upgrades, chief among them being that the new Move 2 has a stereo setup for better sound staging off a built-in subwoofer and a pair of tweeters; its predecessor only offered mono output.

Another key upgrade is that the Sonos Move 2 offers up to 24 hours of music playback time which is more than enough for any party whereas the original Move only had about half of the playback time. Charging the Sonos Move 2 is done via a USB-C port placed in the rear of the speaker that also accepts line-in audio via a compatible adaptor. If wired charging doesn’t quite appeal, you can also opt to use a wireless charging pedestal.

Performance upgrades aside, the Sonos Move 2 retains the IP56 dust and water resistance of its predecessor and its somewhat hefty carry weight that tips the scales at about 3 kilos. Fortunately, it does have a built-in handle though the weight still makes the whole affair a  bit hefty to tote around to your next beach party. 

On the bright side, you’ll get to work those biceps. Sonos has also added in touch controls akin to the Sonos Era 300 and Era 100.  Of particular note is that the new Move 2 has automated TruePlay tuning support that adjusts its acoustics based on where it’s plonked down in your room or party. It also retains WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity for easy pairing.
