Sonos would be working on some premium wireless headphones that could be offered for sale for about $300.
Sonos could expand its business by launching premium wireless headsets. The indiscretion comes from Bloomberg which shows how the company could decide to focus on this market segment after having proposed for years almost exclusively audio speakers. There are no details about these new products. However, the source shows that Sonos headphones will certainly be characterized to support the use of voice assistants such as Alexa and Google Assistant.
The project is still at the beginning and therefore it is not clear when they could be officially launched. Surely over the next few months will come out more information on these new features. On the part of Sonos, however, it’s a logical choice. The company, in fact, is trying to expand its presence in the audio market and the choice to focus on products such as headphones is certainly a logical and correct choice.
However, Sonos will have to be careful. There are already some premium headphone manufacturers on the market that offer integration with voice assistants as well as other sophisticated technical solutions. Sonos headsets will have to compete with popular products such as Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless, Bowers & Wilkins PX, Bose QC35, Sony WH1000XM3 and Beats Solo3 Wireless. Sonos will therefore need to create a product that stands out and offers users the highest level of sound quality as well as unique features.
Of course, this quality will also be reflected in the final price. The source reports that Sonos’ future premium wireless headphones may cost more than $300. Niche products, therefore, and only for true lovers of quality music.
All that remains, then, is to wait and find out what Sonos has in store for its most loyal customers.
