Sonos is a premium audio brand and that means its wireless speakers are too expensive for some people. However, a new subcription service called Sonos Flex is making them more accessible.
It's similar to what Nura has done with NuraNow. It offers headphones at £9/$9 per month with the promise of upgrades every two years.
What is Sonos Flex?
In simple terms, Sonos Flex is a way of renting speakers so you don’t have to buy them at full price. You pay monthly for different sets of devices, depending on what you want.
How much is Sonos Flex and what speakers do I get?
There are three different tiers for Sonos Flex, starting at €15 a month. At this level you get two Sonos One smart speakers which you can use independently or connect together to make a stereo pair.
At €25 you also get a Sonos Beam, which is the firm’s smaller soundbar to connect to your TV.
How long is the contract and can I cancel?
Sonos Flex is a monthly subscription and can be canceled at any time.
While your subscription is active, units will be replaced with newer models as they’re released. Delivery is free and you can choose whether you want white or black speakers.
Is Sonos Flex available in the UK or US?
So far Flex is a trial in the Netherlands covering 500 homes, but if this is successful the service is likely to roll out to other countries.
