The Sonos Move 2 Offers Improved Battery Life

Sonos Move 2 is an ultra durable water resistant portable Bluetooth speaker with improved stereo sound and 24 hour battery life for $449.

Sonos Move 2 portable Bluetooth Speaker Black Carry

The rumor about the Sonos Move 2 we reported last month has finally become official. Sonos has introduced Move 2, an ultra durable water resistant portable wireless speaker, which improves upon the original Move in a number of ways.

It also launches at the same time of the new Ultimate Ears EPICBOOM that offers superior durability in regard to dust, water, and abuse. However, the new Sonos Move 2 offers seven additional hours of battery life from a full charge.

Unless you plan on dropping this in the pool (it will not survive), seven hours of additional battery life and a superior OS are genuine points of differentiation that would make us lean towards the Sonos.

What’s new?

Sonos Move 2 bumps up the price $50, but adds stereo sound and extends battery life to 24 hours (previously was 11 hours). There are new touch controls and a USB-C port for charging or connecting audio devices. The company says Move 2 is upgraded inside and out to include all-new hardware and software, while also claiming it’s their most sustainable portable product to date.

  • Sustainably designed to outlast any adventure: Move 2 reduces idle energy usage by more than 40%, incorporates recycled plastics, and uses a removable and replaceable battery to extend its product life – all wrapped in a responsibly designed package that uses sustainably sourced material, zero virgin plastic and is curbside recyclable.
  • Versatile sound you can move around: With its ultra durable design and IP56 rating, Move 2 is built to withstand accidental drops, splashes, rain, dirt, and sun. With automatic Trueplay tuning, Move 2 continually optimizes the sound for its surroundings, so you’ll always get the best listening experience no matter where life takes you.
  • Elevated design and controls: Move 2 is available in an Olive colorway to complement neutral indoor and outdoor aesthetics, as well as Black and White colorways that blend seamlessly with other Sonos products. Move 2 features the same new intuitive user interface as the recently launched Era products, including a capacitive volume slider for simple control, or use Sonos Voice Control, Amazon Alexa, the Sonos app, Apple AirPlay2 and Bluetooth® to play, pause, check your battery, and more.
  • Connect to all your favorite content: Stream audio using WiFi or Bluetooth, and unlock new listening possibilities by connecting your turntable, computer, or other audio source using the Sonos Line-In Adapter ($19).
