As with almost everything in this comparison, it’s fair to say that Sonos has been ahead of the pack in terms of operating systems. The lack of proper access to your entire music library and an access to the nuances of streaming music provides a far superior experience than anything on the market. But, the lack of both sensible controls and an OS doesn’t matter if the price is right.
Great sounding speaker, that can play indoors connecting to your existing Sonos system… you have the option of taking it outdoors as well… it connects via Bluetooth or WiFi… very durable, water resistant… it also works with Alexa or Google assistance. There are Smart Speakers, this is a Genius Speaker… it does it all… and it does it all, Very Well.
My old bluetooth speaker blew out, so I decided to upgrade to the Sonos Move. Obviously, it’s pricey. But with that price comes a sound quality I didn’t expect from a portable speaker. Audio is rich and clear. Bass is deep enough, but noticeable better in smaller quarters.
The build quality is what you’d expect for the price. The charging ring-type stand is a nice touch. And speaking of touch, the touch controls on the top of the unit are responsive with a light tap.
When it comes to portability, it fell like carrying a gallon of water around. Carry this around in a backpack and be ready to sweat. It does come with a soft felt fabric bag which is only good for keeping dust and debris off the unit. If you plan on taking it places, get a case.
The Sonos Move is a solid buy if you want to splurge.
