Are the bells and whistles of the gray, white and black speakers that Apple, Amazon, and Google sell are a bit boring? Sonos today launched a special edition of Sonos One, which was co-produced with the Danish design brand HAY. The new colors yellow, green, red, pink and gray will be available from November 5 to $ 229. The buyer will therefore pay a premium of $ 30 for a more energetic speaker. The standard Sonos One is sold in black and white and sold for $ 199.
Limited edition Sonos Ones is not available to all Resellers of the Company. You can get HAY colors from Sonos store in Manhattan or from Son.com.com, Hay.com from MoMA design store. No Amazon or Best Buy, I'm afraid.
But they look really sharp. I have been able to see the collection recently, and the red and yellow options will personally be the front runner for me. "Vivid red" Warn in advance that Sonos One can use more pink tones in accordance with the room lighting. Let's compare the above picture with the picture taken by Sonos.
The blue speaker looks like a clear missing piece, but maybe next time. Either way, it was nice to finally see these colors beyond the colorful Google Home Mini. Google's larger speakers keep it as simple (and boring) as its competitors. It is a little disappointing that the "limited edition" is more expensive in this case. According to Google Assistant's theme, Sonos said it is targeting Sonos One and Sonos Beam by the end of next year.
The special edition Beastie Boys Play: 5 will be released in December and will be available at a standard $ 499 price. Here are some really cool things: 100% of proceeds will be transferred to Peace Sisters and Little Kids Rock on behalf of the Adam Yauch Foundation. But Sonos says the Beastie Boys speaker is going to make an extremely limited production. If you like, you should not waste a lot of time when starting with Sonos.com, Sonos NYC stores and "Select retailers around the world".
