Sonos has launched Sonos Era 300 and Sonos Era 100, the next generation of smart speakers ushering in a whole new chapter in sound and design innovation.


Era 300 is a bold, revolutionary new speaker built to deliver the best experience for outloud spatial audio with Dolby Atmos, while Era 100 is a remastering of the best-selling Sonos One. Tuned by award-winning artists and engineers, the Era family powers new levels of immersive listening with expanded connectivity and Trueplay technology. Era 300 and Era 100 are also the first speakers built to Sonos’ new responsible design standards, which span long-term serviceability, energy-efficient technologies, and the use of post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials.

“In an age of constant background noise, quality listening matters more than ever. Our vision is to make listening an experience that is charged with feeling, and help our customers feel joy and vitality through their favorite music and audio content," said Patrick Spence, CEO of Sonos. "The Era family is the next generation of smart speakers, epitomizing our commitment to sound innovation, responsible design, and a deep connection to the creator community.”


Era 300: an unmatched spatial audio experience with Dolby Atmos for listeners and creators alike

Unprecedented for a single compact speaker, Era 300 boasts six powerful drivers that direct sound left, right, forward, and upward, delivering a breakthrough audio performance featuring Dolby Atmos that places listeners at the very heart of their movies and music.

“Dolby Atmos created a new way for music and audio entertainment to be experienced. Sounds and music come alive with unparalleled clarity and depth,” said Kevin Yeaman, President and CEO of Dolby Laboratories. “Era 300’s sound innovation with Dolby Atmos creates a completely immersive music experience.”


Sameer Seth, Director of Marketing at Dolby India, stated in his presentation, All of us at Dolby are extremely excited to be a part of today's launch of the Sonos AR300, which features Dolby Atmos. We highly value this partnership with Sonos because we believe that our company's goals align closely. At Dolby, we are passionate about delivering consumer experiences that consistently exceed their expectations, and Sonos shares this commitment. We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to our partners, Sonos, for this outstanding collaboration. We've had a fantastic time working together on developing this product and other Sonos offerings that incorporate the World e-Experience.

  • Designed for spatial: Era 300 wraps its beautifully complex acoustic architecture in an elegantly cinched hourglass design, with every angle, proportion, and perforation enhancing the direction and dispersion of sound to truly surround you.
  • Surreal surround sound: Era 300 is the brand’s first speaker that delivers multi-channel surround sound when used as a home theater rear. Movie fans can pair two speakers with Arc or Beam (Gen 2) to create a supercharged Dolby Atmos experience that draws them deeper into the action.
  • Deep music industry collaboration: Sonos worked closely with its community of leading artists and creators - including Sonos Soundboard members - to meticulously fine-tune Era 300 so listeners can enjoy sound straight from the studio that’s true to the artist’s intent.

“Just like the shift from mono to stereo, spatial audio is the next evolution in listening - creating a sound experience that wraps you in music,” said Giles Martin, VP, of Sound Experience at Sonos. “As both creators and major streaming platforms embrace spatial audio for music, the time is right to create an out loud listening experience that delivers against the promise of this thrilling and creative format.”


Luv Malik, Director at Luxury Personified expressed in his presentation that audio is more important and prevalent than ever. Audio connects us to our surroundings, communities, and culture. In today's busy world, setting aside time for intentional listening has become an essential component of self-care. It stimulates our emotions and promotes well-being. SONOS strives to create sound experiences that cater to this need – experiences that are intimate, human, and true to the artist's intent. We are motivated and inspired by innovation that can revolutionize the way we listen, enhancing our connection to the music, audiobooks, movies, or podcasts we love.

Premium, responsible design that keeps everyone in mind

Building on Sonos’s timeless acoustic-driven design aesthetic, Era 100 and Era 300 are responsive to the challenges facing our environment—and better for everyone who interacts with our designs, featuring a bold new UI and innovations that will help them last longer, use less energy and make use of recycled materials in each product.
