Sonos Roam leak shows off new colors for the portable speaker: light blue, olive, and red

New, 11 comments

Currently the only options for the speaker are black or white

If you’ve been paying attention to the latest Sonos rumors, then you already know about its upcoming “Ray” soundbar and plans to launch a voice assistant that prioritizes speed and privacy. While we wait for official confirmation on those, you can add another rumor to the list: posters on the Sonos subreddit have reason to believe they’ll see new colors of the Sonos Roam speaker revealed this week, and now one of our readers points out that a Chilean reseller may have leaked which colors are on the way.

Emails sent to subscribers said “something colorful” is on the way with a countdown. Any doubt about what that something may be was eliminated once posters noticed the URL in the email includes “roamcolors_teaser_owners.”

As you can see from the photo above, the retail shop Music World is already advertising Sonos Roam speakers in new colors. That includes olive, light blue, and red.

We’ve seen expanded colors arrive from Sonos with limited-edition releases for the One and Play:1 speakers, however, those also added a bit extra to the price. The Roam has already received a $10 price bump to $179, as Sonos adjusted pricing for its lineup last year and said it was due to supply chain issues.

Now that we’ve seen pictures of some additional colors, Sonos customers in other countries should find out very soon if they can grab the pocketable (and occasionally mic-less) Roam speaker in colors other than the default black and white, and for how much.
