Product Expert soundbars

With this set, consisting of the Sonos Beam and 2 Play: 1 speakers, you can create a 5.0 home cinema setup in your living room.

You'll hear footsteps behind you during an exciting scene, for example. The Sonos Trueplay technology adjusts the speakers to the acoustics of your room. This means the sound is clear. regardless of where the speakers are. Do you want to create a Sonos multi-room system at a later time? Add another Sonos speaker to the set and place it in another room.

"The best soundbar you can ask for"
In the version: Beam Zwart

By Gábor Kozár on 29 July 2019

  • Pros:
    Amazing sound quality and depth even without a subwoofer
  • Pros:
    Seamless audio streaming from any source
  • Pros:
    Easy extension options with other Sonos products
  • Pros:
    App provides extensive control and customisation possibilities
  • Pros:
    Easy to set up
  • Con:
    Relatively expensive
  • Con:
    Does not support 5 Ghz WiFi

After my experiences with the LG SK8 soundbar, the Sonos Beam was a breath of fresh air. Seamless, quick setup, amazing audio quality and the ability to easily stream any audio from any source. I've been using it daily for a month now, and yet to run into any notable problems. The one slight complaint that I have is that it can only operate on 2.4 GHz WiFi, and does not support 5 GHz - but this very unlikely to cause a problem for the overwhelming majority of people.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the sound quality. Given the lack of subwoofer, I expected the sound to feel hollow, but nothing could be farther from the truth. The Sonos Beam sounds simply amazing, and that's not something I say lightly.

This is definitely the soundbar I would recommend to anyone who has ~400 EURs to spend. It's worth it.

"Great sound shame about the connectivity to phone sources"
In the version: Beam Zwart

By Vijay Deb on 5 December 2019

  • Pros:
    Design and build quality
  • Pros:
    Sound in a small to medium size room
  • Pros:
    Quick setup
  • Con:
    Unable to play music directly from IPhone

Over other sound bars for me this has to be the best looking. I am surprisingly pleased with sound output. The bass is decent enough for movies.

I was disappointed to find that i was unable to connect my Iphone directly to the Sonos Beam.
