Sonos PLAY:1 wireless streaming music speaker

A world of music you can fit almost anywhere

If you have a wireless home network and a smartphone, then you're ready to start streaming music in any room in your home. All you're missing is Sonos, the easiest way to create a network of wireless music players throughout your home. The compact Play:1 offers easy setup, clear sound, and simple placement or wall mounting in almost any spot you'd like to liven up with some tunes. It's even humidity-resistant, so go ahead — add music to that bathroom or covered porch.

How much music can you access with the PLAY:1? How about pretty much any music available anywhere? Get Pandora® Internet radio, Spotify®, Apple Music™, Rhapsody®, SiriusXM, and thousands of free Internet radio stations. The compact Sonos PLAY:1 lets you enjoy music from the Internet as well as songs stored on your home computers or portable devices — without filling your room with audio gear. It's perfect for small rooms and cozy corners, and setup is as easy as pushing a button. You can even pair two PLAY:1 speakers and configure them for rich stereo sound.

Expand to any (or every) room

Place Sonos players like the Play:1, as well as the larger Play:3 and Play:5, in every room where you want to listen to music. You can set up the players to work on your existing Wi-Fi® network. Or, you can connect any Sonos speaker to your network router, and Sonos will create its own dedicated wireless network for even better performance. You can also use a Boost to create this network if you can't place a speaker near your router.

Sonos controllers

The Sonos app gives you easy wireless control

You can use your iPhone®, iPod touch®, iPad®, or Android™ smartphone or tablet to control any and all Sonos players. A free download turns your smartphone and tablet into a full-fledged Sonos controller. Easily navigate and search through playlists and tracks stored on your computer, or select an Internet radio station. Create customized playlists on the fly for individual rooms or for playback over your entire Sonos system. You can also mute or adjust the volume of each of your players.

Trueplay speaker tuning for optimal sound

If you use your Sonos control app on an iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®, great news. You can use your iOS® device to fine-tune the Play:1 with Sonos's Trueplay feature. It uses the mic built into your device to measure how the sound reflects off your walls and furnishings, and then it adjusts the speaker's settings for the best possible sound. Trueplay works with every Play:1, Play:3, and Play:5 speaker in your system. (Currently for iOS devices only.)

Spotify®, Pandora®, SiriusXM, and more at your fingertips

The Sonos system works seamlessly with a host of streaming music services, including Pandora, Spotify, Deezer, Rhapsody®, TIDAL and more. You also have access to thousands of Internet radio stations from around the world through TuneIn Radio, and terrestrial radio stations through iHeartRadio. If you subscribe to SiriusXM Internet Radio, you can tune into all your favorite programming on any Sonos player in your system.

Play music stored on your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®

Sonos gives you convenient wireless access to music and podcasts stored in the Music app of your iOS devices, for playback throughout your entire Sonos system. This function works on devices running iOS6 or later (see below for full list of compatible Apple devices). The system even lets you connect a combination of up to 16 PCs, Mac® computers, smartphones, tablets, and digital music storage devices from your home network simultaneously.  

Queue up songs from your iPhone to play in the kitchen while you cook, while your spouse streams a podcast in the den from the family computer, and your children use their tablet to enjoy music from their kid-friendly Pandora station — all at the same time.

Using an Alexa voice control assistant with your Sonos system

Sonos has introduced a new speaker that has Alexa voice control built right in — the Sonos One. It lets you select songs from compatible music services using nothing but your voice. You can also control your Alexa-compatible smart home devices with it.

But what if you already have Sonos speakers around your home, like the Play:1? You can get those same cool voice control features by adding an Alexa-compatible voice control assistant and pairing it with your existing Sonos system via the Alexa mobile app. Alexa will "see" all the rooms that you have set up in your Sonos system, and you can control music playback in all of them, simply by talking to your Alexa device.

Which music services work with Alexa?

Here's the list of services you can control with Alexa:

  • Spotify®
  • Apple Music
  • Pandora®
  • SiriusXM
  • Amazon Music
  • iHeartRadio
  • TuneIn Radio
  • Deezer
  • Audible

Not robust and reliable. Great when working.

Evan from Austin, TX on 5/7/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The Sonos Play:1 is like the little girl with the curl in the Wadsworth poem. When she was good, she was very good, but when she was bad she was horrid. When it worked, it was great. During the past several days I have been unhappy more than happy with the speaker. I bought the speaker for two primary reasons: 1. Better sound quality and longer distance coverage over WiFi versus Bluetooth. 2. The flexibility to move the speaker to other locations. When working properly it sounded great. However, maintaining the connection was not robust. Also, moving the speaker frequently necessitated a full reinstall to reestablish the system. Streamed from an iPhone, from a PC library, or internet radio. I don't subscribe to streaming services. However, I had to reinstall it several times. Often when I opened the Sonos app on my phone, it could not find any Sonos speakers on the system. Strange, because my WiFi app reported it as connected to the network. If I opened the camera on my phone while streaming from my phone, it often lost connection. Frankly, I found it was not robust in an iOS multitasking situation. Perhaps the most frustrating flaw for me, was the inability to restore the setup after I unplugged the speaker to move it. BTW, my WiFi is strong and fast everywhere on my property. The speaker now resides with a friend who has a Sonos system. He primarily streams from a paid service and rarely moves his speakers. Too costly to work this

Pros: Speaker offers good sound for size and cost. Sturdy construction.

Cons: Network setup is not robust. Doesn't play we with iOS in multitasking situations.

Easy, good, expandable

Crutchfield customer from Winston Salem, NC on 5/5/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Easy enough for a non-technical person to set up and use (just need to be able to download apps), sound is great for general music listening if you're not an audiophile, can start with one or several and expand as you can afford to do so. Much easier than my $10k Control 4 set up that requires a 3rd party to maintain. Not sure how the surround works, but hopefully easy. My brother has twonofnthe stand alone amps hooked up to his built in speakers so he can control with sonos app. Expensive, but if you can afford them and just want ease of enjoyable music listening, great choice.

Pros: Easy set up and use Great sound for most people Can expand system as you can afford to

Cons: Expensive White Play 5 (diff than Play 1) has black grill, so defeats purpose having an white version

Mind blowing quality for the price

Crutchfield customer from Houston, TX on 5/1/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Absolutely awesome. I don't want Alexa listening in on me, so I had to stick with the Play:1s. Glad I did. The audio quality is seriously remarkable. The build quality is almost shocking. Considering the price and size, you'll likely be blown away by these. If by chance you're like me and wondering whether to get this speaker or a Play:5, let me make it simple. A 1-1 comparison of a Play:1 vs 5 will have you scratching your head because the audio experience definitely doesn't feel like a $350 price difference. So do yourself a favor. Get two play:1s $200 cheaper and absolutely forget about the Play:5. Those only make sense if paired in stereo and you have no room/ability to wire the speakers or get a sub.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

The Great Play:1 Makes a Greater Play:1 Stereo Pair

Crutchfield customer from Plantation, FL on 4/10/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased this speaker to make a stereo pair with an existing Play:1. So there was no illusion on how good it sounded ahead of time. However, in a stereo pair, they build on each other's quality dramatically. There are thousands of reviews praising the Play:1 speaker, the Sonos app, ability to play from numerous sources, and more. I'm just here to say that Crutchfield offered a seamless process of purchase and shipping. They even used the biodegradable packing peanuts, which was nice to see. The order arrived when they said it would, undamaged. I see no reason to not buy electronics from them.

Pros: Incredible sound quality, great app support, multi-room playback, stereo pairing, play from numerous sources

Cons: No bluetooth? (that's not what these speakers are) No AirPlay2 (though newer speakers on the network can group to these and play that way, so "kinda AirPlay2")

Incredible sound from a simple speaker.

William from Nashville, TN on 3/10/2019

I purchased another Play 1 to balance out our kitchen. One SONUS was good, but by combining two speakers you can separate them into left and right channels. It is incredible sound quality, easy to connect to your WiFi and great looking gear.

Pros: Easy to install.

Cons: I recommend purchasing two speakers for the best stereo sound.

Works with Roon Music Player

David from Prairie Village, KS on 2/15/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

in addition to all the good points mentioned in other reviews, this device connects and works perfectly with The Roon music server which I highly recommend if you own a large music library and subscribe to Tidal. I purchased this as an open box item. The wifi settings were configured to the prior owner. I had to go thru quite a bit of instructions on the app before it led me to press and hold 2 buttons on the unit to initialize the wifi settings and communicate with the app as a new device. Little bit of confusion but heck, I saved 20 bucks :) I was looking for a speaker I could take to the basement, garage and the yard to listen to my music while working on projects.

Pros: Quality construction and sound. Easy connectivity.

Cons:

I was very impressed with the sound quality from these small speakers, especially for the price. I was also quite happy with the speedy and free shipping. I will be adding more as my time allows.

Pros: Small, easily placed speakers with much better sound, particularly bass than I was honestly expecting.

Cons: I bought from the "scratch and dent" offerings, I could not see why they were so classified, but I had issues with setting them up as the lights were not as the instructions told me to expect. I had to search for how it had to be done with speakers that had already been setup with another account.

Outstanding small wireless speaker

Brian from Schaumburg, IL on 1/17/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is our second Sonos product; we already owned the Play:5 and love it. Right from the start this unit surprised and pleased us with its rich, full sound, especially from such a small speaker. Since we already owned another Sonos product, this one was a snap to set up - simply open the Sonos app and choose Add Speakers. Setting up from scratch is also very easy. The only glitch we encountered was streaming music from our iPhone, which would drop the sound on occasion. Apparently Sonos is aware of this issue and is currently working on a solution. We got around this problem by setting up our music library from our iMac and have had zero issues with that configuration. I could go on and on about how wonderful Sonos is, but let me make it simple and just say that if you are in the market for a top notch wireless speaker that works with your home wi-fi setup, you can do no better than Sonos. The Play:1 is a fantastic choice for smaller rooms or if space is limited, and if you have a larger room or want a wider soundstage go with a Play:5 and add a sub. All in all I highly recommend the Play:1.

Pros: Small footprint; surprising rich, full sound; easy setup; great value

Cons: Sound drops out if streamed from iOS devices - much better to stream from a home computer

Sonos Play:1 without Alexa

WK from Littleton, CO on 1/16/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

We have two Play:1 speakers and a Play:3 in our house. The sound is great and belies the size of the speakers. Pandora and Apple Music all work well. The reason for the 4-out-of-5-star rating is Sonos's chronic app updating. Several updates occurred within weeks of each other, and I suspect it was because the initial release was absolutely dreadful. If you don't update, you lose the ability to make sound adjustments (bass, treble) to the speakers. They move certain features around in the interface as well. If I find a version of the app I like, why can't I just run it without updating? I don't understand why they hold you hostage by disabling bass and treble adjustments until you update the app to a version that may or may not run well. Other than that, Sonos makes a quality product with a small footprint that blends seamlessly into your living space(s). Also, I refuse to invite Alexa into my house, so I nabbed one of the older, less-expensive Play:1 units before they're gone.

Pros: Sound and build quality Old(er) models without Alexa are less expensive Seamless integration with multiple streaming services

Cons: Incessant app updates that are required if you wish to make sound adjustments to speakers No "next" or "previous" track controls on speakers (only play/pause and volume) No Bluetooth connectivity

We own a couple of Play 1 and own one Play 3. You don't see many fully enclosed speakers (i.e, does not have a port "hole" for the air to circulate inside the speakers) in the market today. Sonos Play speakers are well made, a bit pricey, but well worth it. I was disappointed to learn Sonos discontinued making Play 3. The next speaker from Play 1 now is Play 5.

I am truly amazed at how well this little speaker sounds! The sound is full and not too bright. There was no problem setting it up and have had no connectivity issues since day 1. If you want an unobtrusive speaker that sounds fabulous then I highly recommend. I plan on buying another so I can pair the two for stereo sound.

Pros: Neutral sound, easy setup, great control app

Cons: none

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great service from Crutchfield. Like to purchase from them over any other online source. Purchased quite a few of these over the years for myself and for gifts for family.

Pros: Great sound and discreet size of the Play 1 fits rooms without drawing attention. Is relatively easy to download the Sonos app and once a person is used to the controls, it's quick to get to the station, music, book or downloaded podcast. Really like that there are manual off/on and volume controls on each speaker.

Cons: Not at all crazy about the updates. If you don't do it on your own, it won't let you play anything without being forced to update. Invariably, something always seems to change in the appearance of the app (on the laptop or phone) and/or the way the controller works. (Not sure how the software engineers think that is a good thing). Then a person has to get used to that again. Happened several time over the last few years. Would give this a five star rating otherwise.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Set up was not as simple as promised. Called Sonos, but they were unavailable to help on the weekend - they apparently keep bankers hours. Luckily Crutchfield rep was there and was steadfast and ultimately able to figure out the problem. Glad I bought it through Crutchfield and not Amazon or directly from Sonos! The whole process of doing set up took me several hours. After set up... sound quality is not as good as the reviews led me to expect, but will experiment with locations and settings and hope for more.

Pros: Crutchfield customer service

Cons: Sonos customer service

Crutchfield customer from Rcho Sta Marg, CA on 12/13/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Sonos Play:1 speakers are great and they do everything they promised. I would have given them 5 stars, but they lack the option of an external battery pack. This means that your speakers always need to be near a power source, or they will not work. My normal setup this is no problem, as I've added electrical outlets. But when I have people over, I'd like to expand the music throughout the house and it's not always convenient to place the speaker near a plug.

Pros: sound good app is easy to use can play same sounds on all speakers or have different music in different rooms.

Cons: expensive has to be near power outlet

Crisp sound,

Ryan from Destrehan, LA on 12/12/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This sucker absolutely bangs. I would've never ever guessed this beautifully designed little speaker could supply as much bass and clarity as it does. I've used Vizio sound bars (5.1), Bose speakers in car and home as well as other brands, and nothing can honestly compare to this one It sounds about as crisp as a cold soda and as bright as a sunny day. And when I say this, I'm only talking about 1 of these things. Having two,three or the whole set up incorporated into your house would be life changing. The ability to play music from multiple playlists and apps that you've already set up along with individual volue control for each speaker makes this buy a no brainier if you're in the market for a home speaker, whether it be a speaker in just one room, or a system throughout your entire house.

Pros: Clarity Bass Ease of set up Loudness Volume control Ability to connect multiple speakers

Cons: Must be on a WiFi network of hardwired

Bill from Spartanburg, SC on 12/11/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I got two Play:1's to go with a Sonos Beam as a sound system for my TV. The detail they add is amazing. When I watch sporting events I hear individuals in the crowd along with the announcers. I also listen to music on Pandora and again I hear things I have never heard before. I guess I can put off buying that hearing aid!

Pros: A lot of sound for the money.

Cons: You have to pair these speakers with other Sonos products which is OK but you give up some flexibility.

Our son requested 2 book shelf speakers and we found, with guidance from another son, the best quality in a small package. It delivers! And Crutchfield delivers as well, swiftly, well packaged, and for years to come.

Pros: Just the right size for the sound they want. Quality, Crutchfield service, who could ask for more

Cons: none

Big sound from a small package

BRIAN from Flagstaff, AZ on 12/9/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I had already purchased a Sonos Play 5 for the master bedroom, and expected the smaller Play 1 would sound, well...smaller. I was pleasantly surprised to learn despite the diminutive size (and less expensive price) the Play 1 offers nearly as much range as it's big brother. I'm using one Play 1 in the kitchen and one in my office (to compliment the wired system in my great room and Play 5 in the bedroom), and now the entire house has seamless, rich sound no matter where you roam. In hindsight I'm wondering if using two Play 1s would be a better bet than one Play 5...Sonos now offers the option of splitting the signal for full stereo effect if you choose that route. Next time...

Pros: Big, rich sound Small price Easy setup and interface

Cons: None

burton from Walpole, MA on 12/1/2018

I really wanted to like this system. It sets up easy and the sound is great quality. Unfortunately, I have had many problems with the Sonos app not being able to find my speakers. Sometimes it finds all of them. Sometimes one. Sometimes two. The latest episode was the random skipping of music in the middle of a song playback. Sonos said it was my music service but I've had no other problems with Apple music. Often Sonos can't connect the appa says my wifi is the problem but my wifi works great for my cameras and smoke alarms. I've been on the phone with Sonos in the past as well and you have to beg to speak to someone technical. I gave up and got rid of my speakers after only 9 months of aggravation.

Pros: Great Sound. Easy to set up.

Cons: Often the app can't find speakers on the network. Songs skip randomly.

Nice sound. Uses WiFi for better data transfer than Bluetooth. The speaker is nice and the sound seems reasonably balanced. It is not meant to play wall shaking and earth shattering (loud bass) sound. However, the SONOS smartphone app could use some improvement.

Currently, I have 3 pairs of the SONOS Play:1. I'll probably add 1 more pair before I'm finished building my system. Great for smaller rooms! I especially love the fact that they are small enough to move where ever I want music and I can fill the whole house with the same music.

Pros: Small, portable, powerful sound for small to medium sized rooms. Can be used wherever you can plug them into a wall outlet and can all be controlled from a single or multiple devices. Great flexibility with the SONOS system.

Cons: May need to be integrated with a sub woofer for larger rooms. Need to commit to the total SONOS system in order to use.

Sonos is still king

Brian from Louisville, KY on 2/25/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have three Sonos Play 1 and one Sonos Connect Amp. The Sonos Play 1 is a great speaker as long as you stay at or below 50% volume. Once you go beyond that, you can start to hear compression. 50% volume is plenty loud to fill the house up, however, this isn't for those bass thumping house parties. Love the Trueplay Tuning option. Only issue I had but now seems to be resolved - I used to have the Sonos speakers in wireless mode except for one speaker. The one speaker that was wired up with CAT5 was always clearer. After a few experiments, I feel that CAT5 wired mode definitely sounds clearer and fuller. The issue- when I connected more than one Sonos speaker to my network, it would take down my DHCP on my router. I had to reset my router each time I added a speaker in wired mode to solve the issue.

Pros: Sound Quality, ease of setup, Trueplay tuning.

Cons: No aux line in.

Great sound. So great to use wifi rather than a bluetooth speaker ... much better audio quality. App works great at tying together our online music sources. Didn't want a microphone on the speaker, so chose this one over their newer version with Alexa.

Pros: sound, app, overall quality build

Cons:

The set-up and on-line connectivity was simple and easy -- probably took less than an hour. We're using a single unit to 'sound' a medium size retail store. Setting up the speaker in the middle of the store works well, but will, at some point, probably purchase another speaker for better, more even, dispersion.

A Garden Like Acoustic Experience

garth from Pembroke Pnes, FL on 1/28/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The audio clarity is mind blowing, if you like bass, then there is just enough and there are other Sonos products that'll deliver on that for you, but for a bedroom setting you can not argue with the Play1. As for the ease of use with App, wow, when I was installing it and it made me "wave" my phone throughout the room to measure acoustical characteristics that's when I knew these are serious players in the business and their product definitely reflects that.

Pros: Sheer ease of use. Build Quality Ability to scale up to other Sonos products Well built and regularly updated App

Cons: Little better bass responsiveness, (not a deal breaker) Was pricey at first. Placement needs careful planning and access to wall outlets.

Crutchfield customer from Winter Park, FL on 1/18/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this as part of a home theater system that includes a Playbar, a SUB and two PLAY: 1 surround speakers. The whole system sounds terrific. Setting up and tweaking the system are made easy by the SONOS app. Plus, stuff they didn't tell me: I can control my iTunes music library (Imported CDs) and streaming radio stations using the app. I have so much more flexibility than I did with a home theater system than was built around a tuner-amplifier and wired speakers. My only problem was in set up: because my router is on another floor and at the furthest part of the house, the WIFI signal was intermittent. I solved this problem by installing my neighbor's BRIDGE. The system has been flawless since.

Sounds Easy, and it is!!!

Eric from Silver Spring, MD on 1/16/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Purchased a pair of Sonos Play:1s for our living room to replace an old receiver and wired speakers. Had been considering a Bluetooth adapter but have not been happy with the bluetooth performance in the house. The speakers are a breeze to setup and they sound great. I have them in our living room and have been very happy with the sound and volume. They are plenty loud with surprising base for such a small size. Trueplay Tuning was a breeze and ensures they will sound their best. Would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a multi or even single room Wireless speaker setup.

Pros: The setup was incredibly easy. Within minutes of unboxing my pair of Sonos Play:1s I was enjoying stereo sound in my living room. The sound these little speakers produce is amazing, and they have incredible bass especially considering their size. Adding music services was a snap, and I was able to tune in my favorite NPR Station. Connecting to iTunes library is a snap, and I was even able to setup to access music off of my NAS. I would definitely recommend these wireless speakers.

Cons: I have had issues setting up my Plex Server but it appears to be an issue with my router settings, just haven't had the time to adjust them, but since I was able to access the music straight off the NAS this isn't a big issue. Airplay would be a nice feature as well.

Initially, I had one Play 1 to listen to music from my phone. It sounded so good that I now have two Sonos Play 1's in my family room playing as a stereo pair. Easy to set up and sounds great. Each of my three grown children requested Sonos Play 1's for Christmas presents and were very excited when they received them. Two of them have already bought another Play 1 to play in stereo because they sound so good. Ordering from Crutchfield is very easy and Sonos were received quickly and in perfect condition. I'm about to order a Sonos Sound Bar to set up with the two Play 1's for even better sound in the family room. Exceedingly good experience.

Pros: Quality product, sounds great! Easy to set up and start listening.

Cons: None.

Simply a top notch speaker that can satisfy any audiophile. It is highly impressive how this speaker can fill space, both indoors and out, such as on a patio. Its weight and construction are indicative of its quality. The audio performance of this speaker in many ways outperforms the Play 3, in my opinion. The built-in amplifier delivers impressive sound energy without distortion. I hope this model isn't discontinued in the Sonos line.

Pros: Audio performance and accuracy. Size, looks, and operative simplicity. Ability to fill large areas with sound.

Cons: Not designed for unprotected outdoor use.

I love the Sonos Play 1. This is the second one I am purchasing. It is great to be able to access all the music on my computer as well as internet radio. The one thing to note, in order to control your music from your phone it must be on your home network. So make sure your wifi network coves any area you want to listen to music, inside as well as outside. I had to add an extender to cover my backyard. Great product easy to set sound is good.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

What makes apple so popular is the design, quality and simplicity. Sonos does the same with wireless audio. A few clicks and taps initially and then it just works...almost flawlessly. The web and iphone app works across several services, it can play nice with itunes... it plays well with podcasts. Toss in a echo dot and a skill can give you voice call. Pair them or place them in the bathroom (Moisture resistance)...it works It gets loud and stays clear at higher volume levels It packs a punch in a tiny dense body The app tuning molds the sound to your room Yes there is no bluetooth but audio over bluetooth always suffers in quality. I've seen audio over wifi as superior in every way. At the current price point.... Buy it !

Pros: spotify and alexa play nice wireless/wifi > bluetooth tuning to room needs pairing multiple speakers to give stereo modular... add more to the system

Cons: no aux input bluetooth option would be nice but its not really missed

I have a bunch of Sonos products and I love them all. It's amazing how great the sound is out of a pair of Play:1's. I have them setup as a stereo pair of rear surrounds with a Playbar in front and a sub. This pair replaced a pair of Play:3's that were in the room (they were relocated to extend the music to other rooms in the house) and I can't even tell the difference in sound. Small, unobtrusive, look sleek, well-built, super reliable, easy to setup and versatile. Sonos products aren't cheap but being able to toss my old audio equipment, get rid of that rat's nest of wiring, switches and nonsense was awesome. It took me longer to unbox and place the equipment then it did to get it all setup and running. Well worth it.

Pros: Great sound. Small and unobtrusive. Ease of setup. Versatility of relocation and movement (anywhere you have an electrical outlet). Build quality. Reliability.

Cons: Not cheap.

Great speaker for the price. The Alexa interface is a excellent application for streaming music services.

The setup process itself was the only place where it fell below expectations as my experience required trouble shooting and took approximately 2 hrs to complete.

Great sound

William from Memphis, TN on 12/7/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The product itself produces amazing sound for such a compact speaker. The sonos system is easy to set up and control. I have several throughout my home and they all sound the same which is a major plus - I say this because without the true tune the speakers sound differently depending on the acoustic surroundings. I cannot recommend this brand enough and this product in particular. I started out with a single play1 last christmas and them immediately went out and purchased 3 more. Then another 2. I am now up to 12 throughout my entire home with plans to buy some subs and eventually a Connect:Amp for outdoor sonos integration.

Pros: Great sound for such a compact speaker. The other major pro would be since they are smaller they are easier to incorporate into your home. I now have 12 throughout my house and they blend in wonderfully

Cons: Only con would be the connection can get lost sometimes and certain speakers will stop playing music even when they are on "play all". I have ordered a sonos boost to replace my sonos bridge, so this point may become moot.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Initially heard these in several stores and loved the room filling sound. First time the speakers were hidden and I couldn't find them. They don't seem to perform as well in my kitchen. They seem to need more base. If you control from your phone you need to have speakers and phone on same network. This is a problem if you have more than one network in your house.

Pros: Easy to set up

Cons: Needs stronger base

Great solution for sound around the house!

Gene from Kearney, MO on 8/27/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This piece was icing on the cake! I wanted a system for music in the house that was streamed from the Internet. I hadn't heard of Sonos before I called an advisor at Crutchfield. So, we talked about the options like DAC vs. Sonos and the Sonos app. I chose Sonos since the amplifier and network were established by the Sonos pieces. I purchased 2 Sonos 1 speakers, the Sonos SUB, and the Sonos Boost. Yes, expensive investment. So far, worth every penny of it. My conventional sound system was NAD and B&W loudspeakers. Frankly, I've lost enough hearing that being an audiophile wasn't much fun anymore. My hearing aids distort sound around 3000Hz or so, and it's just too hard to program a "natural" setting. That definitely entered the equation for choosing Sonos. Don't get me wrong ... nothing about the Sonos system is cheap or poor sounding. In fact, it sounds great! Best of all, I can now spread speaker throughout the house, have different Internet streams running several sets of speakers, and control it all by way of an app on my smartphone or computer. Awesome!!!

Pros: Great sound right out of the box. Love being able to control volume from either one of my Sonos Play1 speakers.

Cons: I wouldn't set this up with the smartphone app. Too complicated. Just use the app for your computer at home. Much more straightforward.

Great speaker!

Dave from South Bethany, DE on 7/31/2017

The Sonos PLAY:1 wireless speaker produces great sound and is easy to set up.

Pros: The Sonos PLAY:1 is very easy to set up and produces great sound. Its compact size makes it appropriate for many locations. The Sonos Controller app that's used to control the PLAY:1 is very intuitive and helps make setup and control a breeze.

Cons: This isn't really a con, it's more like a tip. I was trying to use the Sonos Controller app exclusively during setup and was having a hard time getting the system to recognize the PLAY:1. After 10-15 minutes or so I finally realized that I needed to go to my Wi-Fi settings and tell my iPhone to recognize the PLAY:1 before the Sonos app would recognize it. Other than that setup was a breeze.

Great sound from a speaker of this size. Super easy setup. We have one speaker in the bathroom and one in the bedroom. Occasionally we'll pair the speakers together and put them in our living room when we are entertaining. Would highly recommend these and will likely by more.

Pros: Easy setup, very good sound, multiple uses

Cons: None

The Answer to Distributed Home Audio

Patrick from Vienna, VA on 7/19/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Outstanding product. Sonos speakers always seemed too expensive to me, and as a result, I resisted making the investment for years. In that time, I have easily spent the same amount on inferior solutions. Make no mistake, this is the only wireless home speaker system that matters. Apple, Google, Amazon, Bose, Harmon -- despite their respective success in (often many) other fields -- are all pretenders. Get Sonos. The audio quality is top-notch. The setup could not be easier. The software offers everything you need, plus a lot you would not expect (but will happily end up using).

Pros: Everything. Well-designed, easy to use, just outstanding.

Cons: High price point, but worth it.

Sonos Play-1 units are great!

David from Arlington, VA on 7/7/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The Play-1 is high quality, and it's easy to set-up right out of the box. The phone app makes it easy to pair two Play-1 units to achieve full-room stereo sound. I had to do a lot of extra work adding back online music sources because I mistakenly tapped "Add a New System" rather than just adding a Play Unit. :-0 I've bave been a Sonos user for years -- still using my ZP-100s, and some functions of my CR-100s.

Pros: Easy set-up and good customer support. Fair price; I got mine at a discount during a Sonos sale.

Cons: none

A Growing System

Freddie from St Simons Island, GA on 6/18/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Just added two Play1's as rear field to my Sonos Playbar and Sonos sub to create the 5.1 surround. Just the Playbar and sub are excellent but the rear field adds a fullness that makes it well worth the addition. I do have a single Play1 in my master bath and one in the workshop and will add a few more in other rooms. I still find myself amazed at the sound that cones from one small Play1. If I were choosing to have a single speaker in a large room I'd opt for a Play5 but I am 100% satisfied with the tiny footprint of the Play1 in all my rooms except the family room. Mindlessly easy setup and control with the app and you only need an electrical outlet to plug in each speaker and a wifi. As you add more it's very pleasurefull to walk through your home with music playing in all your rooms. Also if you get a sub learn about the "bass crawl" as it made a huge difference when I found the best placement.

Pros: No hardwiring limitations, great sound, ability to easily relocate, easy setup, easy to add to system.

Cons:

Great sound as a pair!

Chris from Coatesville, PA on 5/28/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I now have 2 pairs of these Sonos 1's, they are excellent: one pair is in the kitchen and one pair is in the bedroom. The app makes set up a breeze. One thing of note, when setting up any Sonos products, you may sometimes need to remove the case from whatever (iTouch, iPhone, etc) you are setting them up with. I did not have this issue with the Sonos 1's but I did with the Sonos 3's (living room) I bought. I was totally skeptical at first but as I set them up and started playing them, I immediately noticed how rich they sounded as a pair. They might be a bit light on the bass, I am one that likes some bass but not an overwhelming bass sound. I like to hear everything and these do just that. I made the mistake of purchasing these through Sonos instead of using Crutchfield, I will not make that mistake in the future!

Pros: Great sound, solid build, Easy set up, nice app.

Cons: A bit light on the bass for some.

The Sonos PLAY 1 just feels solid and extremely well constructed. Then, the sound...simply enriched and amazing! It's super easy to use and love that it's so compact. Bought it for my wife as she had more music on her phone and would insist on using the phone's speaker to listen. My next purchase will be the soundbar when we update our entertainment center. Eventually planning to incorporate a few more of the PLAY 1's for some incredible surround sound, too.

Sonos most versatile speaker. Price is right sound is excellent.

Sonos is the best!

Steve from Lewisburg, PA on 4/9/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have a Sonos Connect that I run through my Denon M50 micro audio system in the master bedroom (via optical input), and the Play 1 downstairs in the kitchen. The units are controlled with Apple iPhones and an iPad and are perfectly compatible. The Play:1 sounds like a much bigger speaker with great bass and awesome imaging. It provides great sound in a large kitchen/dining area and very listenable sound quality in adjacent rooms including a family room, living room, and dining room. I like the group feature that allows one to play the same same source throughout the house. I can move from the second level to the first and not miss a beat- a truly liberating experience. I would like to move the Play:1 to the master bath and replace the kitchen speaker with a Play:3 at some point, now that I realize that I can blanket cover the first floor of my home with a single speaker. Further down the road, I would like to add more Play:1 speakers throughout the first level to augment the listening experience, and perhaps, someday add them to some of the upstairs bedrooms. The quality, design, and functionality are outstanding and are on a par with Apple products.

Pros: Outstanding sound Superior interface that can be operated through smartphones and other handheld devices that connect to home wi-fi network. Sophisticated, intuitive software with a commitment from Sonos to continuously update and expand The play/pause and volume control on the speaker and connect unit are useful for quick adjustments Easy to set up and modify as needed Hardware can be expanded gradually over time in order to lessen financial and marital impact

Cons: Quite expensive if you want to blanket your home environment, but worth it!
