Best sound in business 4/5
Love it perfect sound!!!
Great sound! 5/5
The speakers sound amazing and are small and sleek, so that they are not obvious in the space. Only issue involves me having to often times re-set the radio station and which speakers I want to play. Not sure why that happens, but other than that, I love my Sonos!!
Real Limitations. 3/5
Advantage: Pairs with great hardware. Love the speakers.
Disadvantage: Unlike bluetooth connections, you can only play audio through certain apps, rather than being able to play anything that your phone can.
Disadvantage: Also, even when internet connection is strong and consistent, songs go through periods of inexplicable skipping. This is true for both Pandora and Spotify.
Not functional enough for the price 1/5
By Alpenglow Sports
Broken and disjointed playback for music and podcasts all the time. Super lame. For this much money I’m shocked at how poor it is.
Network like it’s 1999 1/5
In its rush to abandon users who have invested in large FLAC and/or ALAC libraries (audiophile quality files) on their home networks, Sonos refuses to update the SMB protocol support beyond the deprecated, insecure SMB 1. Forcing users to run insecure protocols on their networks in inexcusable in today’s security-conscious world.
Recently crashing a lot 3/5
Generally I love Sonos. I have it in many rooms. Recently I have been struggling with the app - both iPhone and iPad.
It works great when I first open it up and start playing music. Often when I reopen it to make a change (volume or music) the app won’t connect. I then have to stop the app and restart it. Then it takes a few seconds and connects. Very annoying. Please fix this!

This by far is an awesome speaker. I’m really happy that I have it. The sound quality is great.
Good, Apple Watch app needed. 4/5
This is a good app and probably the best way to control a Sonos system. The app should have an Apple Watch app though. It would be nice to be able to see watch music is playing from my wrist and be able to quickly switch songs or music sources without having to go back to my phone to do it.
It is what it is 4/5
By Reindeer Instructor
The bass has a slight reverberation type of thing -the equalizer helps but it's not a very advanced equalizer (which could perhaps change in the future who knows). I live not to far from Disneyland and at first it reminded me of the fireworks that we can hear in the distance for some reason. But it works with apple "moderately" I'm sure not all the functionality that apples speaker would (I'm not sure)
Like I said -it is what it is if your caught in the middle of Alexa and apple.
I can’t listen to any sports!
Best system ever 5/5
Well worth the money .
Constantly having connectivity issues. One day everything works great...the next day the app cannot locate any of my four speakers. Nothing wrong with my WIFI (same network & still able to stream TV / movies). Resetting the speakers works about 50% of the time. Definitely our last Sonos products.
Excellent quality! 5/5
Love so many radio stations with NO ads!!!
So -so 3/5
I bought Sonos due to the technology. But I do experience issues with songs skipping which is very irritating.
Unreliable Connectivity 1/5
Too many updates to handle.... everyday it seems something is wrong and update is needed. Perform update then.. wait for it.. still doesn’t work. Works when it wants to.
Keeps dropping rooms! 2/5
Used to just play nicely but lately (last 3-4 months), Sonos will suddenly stop playing in random rooms or just stop completely. My system is updated and we have adequate speed for all devices. I’m tired or uninstalling and reinstalling.
Where the Apple Watch app tho? 3/5
I try to use siri from my Apple Watch to play on Sonos one. Doesn’t work. Get it together. Luxury brands should work with Apple Watch, you rubes.
Sometimes it works...sometimes it doesn’t 3/5
The sound is good. The app still needs work. Still is not connected to my iTunes account since I did an update.
Too many REQUIRED UPdates 1/5
Have you ever heard the old saying, “Your possessions own you?“
Nothing better illustrate this concept then the Sonos music player system.
No less than a one out of 10 times, the Sonos needs you to update the system before you can listen to music. It absolutely requires this. There is no way you can enjoy your music unless you keep your software up-to-date according to the Sonos schedule. I bought this system so that I could make it play music for me!
Instead, I am now an unpaid employee of the Sonos music system, having to install updates all. The. Time!
DO NOT BUY SONOS!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - EASY INSTALLATION 5/5
A MOTHER’S DAY GIFT FROM MY SON PUT MUSIC BACK IN MY LIFE! LUV IT!!!!! GREATEST SOUND SYSTEM THROUGH OUT THE HOUSE! 🤗🤗🤗
Like butter! Nothing else to say...LOVE IT
App functionality 2/5
I love everything about Sonos except the iPhone App’s performance. It repeatedly crashes and freezes up. I routinely update when the new versions come out and it keeps happening. You have to shut the app down and reopen it ALL THE TIME. Please fix this guys... this is the only app I use that has performance that is this bad.
Just can’t get it right! 2/5
The audio quality is exceptional! BUT, when I get home I just want to turn on the music and go about my business. With Sonos I open the app and HOPE it finds my bridge. About 1/3 of the time I get “can’t find any Sonos devices” Then, when I do get music playing the iPhone app jumps to the next song before the first ever finishes. I keep updating the system to latest code only to uncover even new bugs. I wish I had purchased a $100 Bluetooth speaker over this aggravating and expensive system.
Good sound but.. 4/5
It sound as I expected but the issue that doesn’t work without a WiFi network, wont let me give 5 stars. It definitely needs the Bluetooth system.
Can’t shuffle songs 1/5
You can’t just click on amazon music and easily shuffle songs anymore. It seems you’re suppose to add each song individually to a queue, which is time consuming and stupid. So I’ll sell it on Craigslist and if no one there is dumb enough to buy this I’ll use it as a tire wedge because that’s the only use I have for it now.
Great until they tried to integrate airplay 4/5
The Sonos app has been a great controller for my music from multiple sources, including iTunes. However, when they decided to try integrating airplay, presumably to make it easier, they missed the mark. When I try to control my speakers through AirPlay it rarely connects properly and when it does it’s linked to the service through my iPhone rather than directly through my WiFi network. Worst of all I lost the ability to control the system from my phone’s lock screen
An honest review 1/5
By todd from ct
I love my sonos system
I have 6 different sonos speakers in my house, but for the love of god please stop updating it, the beauty of sonos is its simplicity, but it seems every time I use it there is another controller update, if you want to innovate come out with some exterior speaker options and please stop making me update my controller.
Sound quality not great 3/5
I enjoy the variety of music selections but not the sound quality.
Bad update 2/5
Lost all speakers. Still can’t get my playbar back which is my tv speaker....is Bose easier?
It is ridiculous that it doesn’t connect with Spotify free. They need to work out a deal somehow
Great sound & great control of all streams audio! 5/5
Great sound & great control of all streams audio!
Sync with you tube 4/5
Would be great if Sonos synced with you tube.
We love it. It is so easy to use
Best ever sound! 5/5
By BJ Titsingolf
Amazing and sound is the best.
So easy and all done from your phone
Inconsistent Sound + WiFi 2/5
As others have said, moving your Sonos system from one WiFi system to a new one is maddeningly difficult.
But I am writing about the sound. We use our Sonos ones on output for the TV and occasional music. For TV in particular, the volume plays extreme loud sound for music and sound effects, and extreme quiet sound for speaking voices, leaving us constantly turning up and down the volume over the course of watching, to avoid very loud or very quiet sounds - depending on if someone is talking or not.
Sonos tells me this is because our Ones aren’t meant for TV, but this isn’t accurate as they are clearly sold as part of several TV audio sets / home theater set ups. If Sonos introduces a “reduce loud sounds” option, I would consider expanding our home system.
The WiFi piece is terrible. It is constantly loosing signal or one speaker is missing. I spend more time rebooting the system than listing to music
Serious issues when trying to play music from iPhone library 1/5
I lose connection with sonos from playing music on my phone that I’ve downloaded onto my phone. I’ve googled this issue and sonos recommends that I change my settings so my screen doesn’t lock (which will cause me to disconnect). I’m okay having to do this even though it’s a slight nuisance but the fact that my sonos app completely freezes when I try and pick a specific song is totally unacceptable. I also started using another app on my phone and sonos again disconnected. I feel like this app isn’t compatible with playing music from an iPhone and regret purchasing sonos
Love the music, needs to be tweaked 3/5
I love my wireless music system. Sonos does a good job of moving the music throughout the house. But it is needlessly complicated. The answer from their help line to my questions was to use the Pandora and Spotify apps to control Sonos. To say that the ability of those apps to control Sonos is unstable is an understatement.
Enjoying listening to sonos in my bedroom! It’s a great the start my morning off!!! 5/5
By Transfer from VHS to CD
My sonos is a great companion! It’s with me morning, noon and night. I wake up happy to awesome music at my fingertips.
Does not Sync with iTunes Music Library 3/5
I want to be 100% in love with this, because the functions that do work work wonderfully. Sadly, it doesn’t sync properly with my iTunes music Library. Evidently this is quite common (which I’ve recently discovered as I try to investigate solutions). Sonos needs to get this remedied with easy solutions to the problem
Songs skip on iPhone X 1/5
Songs in your queue skip using iPhone X. Sent message to support 6 months ago and still not fixed.
By Ticho Lee
Music flows and everyone can select a sound that they enjoy. The freedom of selection and the seamless straining is simply tight.
Great customer service 5/5
By Brett McVean
Best customer service ever
Problematic basic playback 3/5
App will stop mid song and lose the progress. Very frustrating. It happens repeatedly.
Slowest, most dysfunctional app I've ever used. LAGS, crashes, outdated
By Sammi -18
I moved, and got a new WiFi network etc. I loved your speaker, but now I’m throwing it in the trash. Make it easier to set up because I’ve been sitting here for almost an hour trying to connect it and I’m about to go insane.
The sound is solid. The software is annoying. The company is arrogant. You will send an update that has to be now. In the middle of a party. Doesn’t matter you will have to stop using sonos. You will be forced to have Alexa no way to opt out. It is forever losing its mind and has to be rebooted.
Unreliable playback 1/5
By Hooter mcboob
Sonos randomly skips songs when playing from my IPhone music. It happens about every other song. Or just stops playing altogether. I’ve updated everything the app the firmware blah blah blah... These overpriced speakers are getting on my nerves.
