A perfect wireless speaker for any room in your home.
Bedroom. Kitchen. Living room or bathroom. If you have a room, there’s a Sonos speaker that will sound great in it.
The compact, yet surprisingly powerful PLAY:1 delivers deep, crystal clear sound and fits just about anywhere –– the counter in your kitchen.
That bookshelf in your den. Or in any other snug space where you’d like some big music.
Clear, true sound. And a deeper bass response than the PLAY:1. That’s what gives our slightly larger PLAY:3 its rich, room-filling power. It sounds equally great whether you place it vertically or horizontally. And its sleek, modern design brings a contemporary touch to any room.
The ultimate listening experience. With the purest, deepest, most vibrant sound ever heard from a wireless speaker. That’s what our PLAY:5 is all about. If you’re a fan of sonically true, intensely vibrant, face-melting sound, this is the Sonos speaker for you.
Easy setup. A range of options.
Sonos wireless speakers are simple to setup and use. Plug in the power cord. Download the free app. Connect to your WiFi network. In minutes you’re streaming all the music you love. Whether you choose PLAY:1, PLAY:3 or PLAY:5, Sonos will make your music sound great. In any room of your home.
Stereo listening with a tap.
Want to enjoy your favorite music in crystal clear, high fidelity stereo? You can turn two matching Sonos speakers into a stereo pair using the free Sonos app. With a simple tap, they’ll become dedicated left and right channels, delivering that clean stereo separation that gives your music amazing depth and range. Want to add music to another room? Just tap on the app again––your PLAY:1, PLAY:3 or PLAY:5 pair goes back to working independently.
Get even deeper into your music.
Adding a Sonos SUB to your system brings the deep bass out. The Sonos system dynamically optimizes the other wireless speakers working with SUB for the richest listening experience. PLAY:1, PLAY:3 and PLAY:5 automatically deliver high and mid-range frequencies, while SUB booms out the bass.

Do you make an outdoor speaker?
No, but they're all light and portable. As long as there's an outlet, you've got Sonos. The speaker units that we sell, the PLAY:1, PLAY:3 and PLAY:5, are not weather-rated. They can certainly be moved outside, but they are not designed to live outside unless they are in a covered space. If you are looking for a permanent outdoor zone of music, you can use our CONNECT:AMP unit with traditional weather-rated speakers.
Can I use two PLAY speakers as a stereo pair?
The PLAY:1, PLAY:3 AND PLAY:5 can easily be setup as a stereo pair, using the controller app. If you are looking for more distinction between the left and right channels, you can use any two matching Sonos speakers in a stereo pair. Creating a stereo pair is a simple software toggle which turns one speaker into a dedicated left and the other into a dedicated right. Stereo pairing creates a wider stereo experience to help you hear every instrument and vocal more discretely, and fill a room more evenly with sound.
How do I mount a PLAY:1 or PLAY:3?
The PLAY:1 and PLAY:3 each have a 1/4", 20-thread mounting socket on the back. You can use any speaker mount with a 1/4", 20-thread insert. Just make sure the mount is designed to support the weight of your speaker.
Which speaker is right for my room?
All of our speakers sound great in any room; which speaker is best for your particular room depends on your desired room experience. For many, the PLAY:1 will provide an incredible music experience with deep bass and plenty of power. Consider upgrading to a PLAY:3 or PLAY:5, or to a stereo pair of speakers if you:
- Want deeper bass
- Want more power
- Have the space to set up two players in stereo pair mode
How do I choose between a PLAY:5 and a stereo pair of PLAY:1s?
While both options deliver an incredible music experience, each has its unique benefits. The differences:
- Choose PLAY:5 for maximum power and the deepest bass.
- Choose a stereo pair of PLAY:1s to create a wider sound stage, allowing every vocal and instrument to be heard more discretely.
