When changed into once the final time someone of us invested in a elephantine-fledged hi-fi audio plan? It nearly sounds adore a blast (I’m no longer talking factual about earth-shattering sound) from the past at a time when Spotify dictates your audio playlists. After per week with the Sonos 5, I felt I reconnected with my past, when the neighbours would know I had guests over and when I would headbang with my campus pals.

The Sonos App

The Sonos 5 doesn’t have a Bluetooth pairing possibility. This is nearly unthinkable at a time when your smartphone talks to hundreds of devices from smartwatches to earbuds through Bluetooth. It’s no longer a dealbreaker even supposing. It took me some time to pair our review unit with an iPhone, but that’s furthermore ensuing from I had to ‘laborious reset’ the speaker since it had been previously synced with a certain machine. I furthermore tried the Sonos App on an Android smartphone and it labored equally smartly. You might tweak the sound settings with the equaliser. The default settings labored smartly and I didn’t lean on the equaliser unbiased. The app furthermore facets Sonos Radio with more than one tune stations. The Sonos 5 changed into once connected through Apple AirPlay and tune changed into once played straight some distance flung from Apple Song.

The Sonos 5 is a expensive speaker that looks each and each trot premium. We checked out the murky shade possibility; it furthermore is available in white. I beget the Sonos 5’s comprise magnificent plays out severely smartly in murky but this would per chance boil to personal preferences. You might space the oblong speaker both vertically or horizontally, and the bodily buttons are straightforward to regain admission to. There’s a play/dwell button and a swipe to flip tracks but it surely’s unlikely these shall be used on condition that you simply would per chance per chance tweak all settings from the telephone.


Unbelievable Sound

There’s no longer incessantly a genre of tune I didn’t strive on this speaker. For many of the day, it changed into once lounge and downtempo tune from artistes adore Yotto and Joris Voorn at low volumes. I severely enjoyed tracks with heavy vocals adore “ocean eyes” by Billie Eilish and “Continually Keep in mind Us This Methodology” from the Superstar is Born soundtrack by Lady Gaga. The Sonos 5 facets a generous soundstage with crisp vocals. The sound setup comprises three tweeters, three mid-woofers, six class-D amplifiers. It’s a formidable setup in a speaker that weighs about 6.3kg. Accurate adore those wide hi-fi programs, the Sonos 5 delivers gargantuan diminutive print, even at low volumes. It handled high volumes with equal ease as wellm when I switched to “Stratego”, Iron Maiden’s contemporary single.


The Sonos 5 doesn’t reach low-price but it surely delivers one among top-of-the-line audio experiences on any speaker good now. It misses out on Bluetooth connectivity and doesn’t provide utter Google Assistant or Alexa increase adore one of the necessary opposite Sonos speakers but these are minor cribs. You might pair it with other Sonos speakers (we tried this and it works seamlessly) for a mighty broader soundstage.


This one’s for audiophiles or someone who takes their tune critically. I would possibly hear the whistles and applause from the target audience factual sooner than the Eagles “Original York Minute” are residing version. I will’t beget of too many speakers that can match this sound ingredient. 

The Sonos 5 is available in murky and white shade alternate solutions, and charges Rs 59,999.
