Sonos, Inc. Key Developments

Sonos and Mood Media Partner to Offer Wireless Sound and Licensed Streaming Music for Business

Sonos has joined with Mood Media to bring its popular wireless music experience to restaurants, retailers and other public spaces. Sonos fans who own businesses can now find Mood’s commercially licensed streaming music service, called Mood Mix, in the Sonos app. Mood is now also carrying the Sonos line of products for its clients. Sonos products are renowned for their versatility and for their high music quality, which is an ideal fit for the customization and music selection of Mood Mix. Both companies see a growing market for modular and portable sound system solutions in the retail and restaurant sectors as well as smaller footprint businesses. This new solution is equally ideal for short-term commercial events, such as holiday pop-up stores and kiosks, as well as permanent entertainment, hospitality event, or banquet venues that demand the flexibility of wireless and customizable audio systems.

Sonos Introduces Trueplay Tuning Software and New PLAY:5 Smart Speaker

Sonos ushered in the next great era of home audio innovation with the introduction of new speaker-tuning software called Trueplaytm and an all-new SONOS PLAY:5® smart speaker. With Trueplay, millions of listeners can easily tune their existing Sonos speakers to optimize the sound no matter where the speaker is placed. The new SONOS PLAY:5, elegantly designed from the inside out, delivers the purest, deepest, most vibrant sound yet from Sonos. Both Trueplay and the new SONOSPLAY:5 will be available later in 2015. Trueplay stems from the insight that few homes are acoustically perfect. The placement of the speaker and the room it's in impacts the way it sounds. In the past, customizing speakers has required complex and expensive professional calibration. Now with Trueplay, anyone can tune speakers with the press of a button. The result Music is liberated so that it sounds great in every room, in every home. Using the Sonos app, the microphone on an iPhone or iPad, and a special tone emitted by the Sonos speaker, the system analyzes how sound reflects off walls, furnishings, glass and other surfaces in any given room. Sonos then smartly tunes that speaker so the music sounds its very best. The new SONOS PLAY:5 delivers a listening experience that is closer than ever to how every track was mastered in the studio. Built with six synchronized, custom-designed drivers, the speaker's three mid-woofers create smooth mids and deep, powerful lows, and three tweeters deliver crystal clear highs at any volume. The array produces a soundstage that is much wider than expected in a single speaker, creating room-filling sound with precise separation of vocals and instruments.
