Sonos Roam review: Portable perfection

The Sonos Roam is super lightweight at just 430g, very portable and IP67 water and dust resistant so it can handle a bit of rough and tumble. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
You can use the Roam in vertical or horizontal orientation and Automatic Trueplay tuning will adjust the sound accordingly. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Charged via USB Type-C or Qi wireless, the battery life is around 8.5 hours in our experience and one button handles power and Bluetooth pairing mode. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Roam works as any other Sonos speaker when on Wi-Fi and any other Bluetooth speaker when outside of Wi-Fi range, auto switching seamlessly between them. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Roam delivers excellent sound from its small body, easily filling a large room or garden with whatever you've chosen, even at 50 per cent volume. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The tactile controls are very easy to use and offer some great features like Sound Swap. There's also a choice of Google Assistant and Alexa on board. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Roam is around the same size as a 500ml water bottle so easy to take with you wherever you go and it looks fantastic too. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
