SAVE $10: As of Sept. 20, the lunar white Sonos Roam is on sale at Walmart for just $169 (or 6% off its usual retail price of $179).
We’re not exactly heading into Peak Portable Speaker Season™️. Sure, we still have a few glorious weeks of early October ahead of us, but after that, it’s smooth sailing into what will probably be our second winter stuck inside. And what’s the point of a take-anywhere speaker if you can’t take it anywhere?
That being said, it never hurts to plan ahead: Grab the all-new Sonos Roam while it’s enjoying a rare discount, and you’ll be set for your next hangout (wherever or whenever it happens).
The ultra-durable Roam is dust-resistant and IP67 waterproof in up to three feet for 30 minutes.
The Roam usually retails for $179, but as of Sept. 20, Walmart had returned the lunar white variant to its original launch price of $169. (The shadow black one is still sitting at $179, unfortunately, but at least it’s in stock at the big box store; the Sonos website had it on backorder ’til Oct. 1 at the time of writing.) That 6% savings wouldn’t normally be something to write home about, except the Roam was selling out on Amazon for as high as $255 this past summer.
There’s a good reason for that: The Roam is fantastic, having nabbed a Mashable’s Choice Award as well as a spot on our list of the best gadgets of 2021 (so far). Tech reporter Alex Perry found that it managed to cram “big sound into a compact shell” for “uncompromising audio,” with more than enough volume for larger gatherings and plenty of pairing options for easy control.
Other highlights include an all-day battery life, drop resistance, and an IP67 rating for protection against dust and water (submerged in up to three feet for half an hour, at least). All things considered, “you’ve got a portable speaker that’s tough to complain about,” Perry wrote of the Roam. Click here to read his full review.
