Smart features, a compact design and an affordable price help to propel the Sonos Roam above the pack in the very crowded Bluetooth speaker market. You wouldn’t typically expect a sub $200 speaker to offer self-tuning, but this is where we are now.

The Roam comes with Auto Trueplay, Sonos’ proprietary technology that uses the Roam’s internal microphones to measure acoustic reflections, obstructions and its position in a room to tune itself and make it sound its best. A pair of class-H amplifiers inside makes sure you get a decent amount of punch out of it as well.
