Sonos Play:3 Review

The Sonos Play: 3 is the cutting edge when it comes to the portable speakers category. For a very long time, people have been associating Sonos products with class.

 

True to this, it is needed to say that this company has been on the fore front in production of high quality and reliable gadgets. Since the invention of wireless, multi-room speakers as well as Bluetooth speakers, what we have seen from the Sonos Company is high quality and very durable gadgets. The Sonos Play: 5 was the first to hit the market and people really liked these gadgets. The only way to set the standards is by comparing the Sonos Play: 3 with another superior quality gadget and its predecessor the Sonos Play: 5.

 

The first thing that you will notice when you take a look at the Sonos Play: 3, is that it is smaller than its predecessor. However, this gadget is still able to produce the room-filling sound which is a trademark for the Sonos Company. The quality and magnitude of sound produced by these speakers does not disappoint compared to its small size. One other thing that I really like about the Sonos Play: 3 and I must say is the ease to set up. It is very easy to set up these speakers and there are no complications at all. However, as compared to the Sonos Play: 5, the clarity of the sound at the mid and upper ranges is not so good.

 

When using low sounds the Sonos Play: 3 is fantastic but the higher the sound the lower the quality since the clarity fades. This is an area that the manufacturer should consider doing some better work. There are also some added features that make these speakers easier to use and produce good sound. One such thing is the on-board accelerometer. This device enables the speakers to sense if they have been placed in horizontal or vertical positions and thus they can auto-correct from stereo to mono thus producing the required quality of sound. This is also good in terms of space as you can slot in your speakers to any place that you deem appropriate.

 

These wireless speakers are very easy to set up and connect to virtually all audio devices known to man. The connectivity is also very easy and works perfectly. There would be no problems of incompatibility with any device. You would also need a Sonos Bridge so as to connect to the internet. Another option apart from this would be a direct connection to your Ethernet router. However, they all work well. One of the things that Sonos devices have always been known for are the high prices. Some people may argue that is due to the high quality gadgets. However, the Sonos Play: 3, comes with some great news as it is about $100 cheaper that its previous version the Sonos Play: 5. This makes these speakers affordable and would be great to buy.

  • The Good :
    Small, easy to set up, connects to all audio devices
  • The Bad :
    produces low quality sound at mid and upper ranges
Our score:
4.5 / 5
