About the product
The most compact Sonos speaker. A perfect fit for bookshelves, counters, and other snug places. PLAY:1 lets you enjoy great-sounding music wherever you want to listen. Surprisingly Powerful: PLAY:1 sounds a lot bigger than it looks, thanks to two Class-D amplifiers and custom-built drivers, all meticulously tuned to the speaker’s unique acoustic architecture. Trueplay Speaker Tuning: This exclusive Sonos feature fine-tunes your PLAY:1 to make sure you get the very best sound in any room, no matter where you place it. Humidity Resistant: Enjoy your favorite songs in music-starved places like bathrooms and outdoor patios. Stereo Pair With Another PLAY:1: Turn each speaker into separate left and right channels for wider, bigger and deeper stereo sound. Home Theater Rears: Add a pair or PLAY:1 speakers to PLAYBAR and SUB for an epic surround sound experience.
Listen to your favorite audio tracks wirelessly, indoors or outdoors, via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi audio streaming. The compact enclosure features humidity resistance, making the HEOS 1 ideal for listening in damp or steamy environments, such as the bathroom. It’s also a perfect outdoor system when on the go.
