New US Patent Filed for Sonos Wireless Earbuds?

Are there Sonos wireless earbuds or headphones on the horizon in 2021? A new series of patent filings in the US suggests something is afoot.

Sonos S2 App

The folks in Cupertino are not going to like this. Have Sonos filed a new patent in the United States for a new wireless earbuds product? It would appear that may be the case. New Sonos wireless earbuds are apparently on the horizon with a giant target painted on the back of the Apple AirPods.

Interesting to say the least. Sonos have created a lot of customer loyalty and there are no shortage of Sonos customers who would give these a try if they sound good and work with the existing Sonos S2 app.

Sonos Earbud Patent

A new US patent filing (spotted by zatznotfunny) highlights Sonos’ first ever pair of wireless earbuds. The filed patent drawings are rather basic but appear to show a couple of different designs, including a wedge-shaped pair that slot into either end of a USB-C charging case. 

The patent filling is rather vague and doesn’t contain enough details, other than to confirm the proposed Sonos wireless earbuds will feature voice control, media playback, and the ability to sync with “Multiple Network Devices,” which suggests that you could stream from other Sonos speakers like the Arc or new Sonos Roam portable loudspeaker.

It’s not unusual for manufacturers to submit multiple patent filings every year even if the product never makes it to market.

One thing for sure — the Apple AirPods Pro and AirPods Max will likely have some interesting new competition by the end of 2021 from Sonos.

Hopefully the new Sonos wireless headphones will support hi-res lossless unlike Apple’s current product lineup.
