At Sonos, music drives everything we do. We make a product that simplifies access to music in the home with the best possible sound quality — the way artists intended music to be heard. But music also faces increasing threats in today’s world. Too many artists face barriers when it comes to free expression and others can be jailed or even killed for merely sharing their songs over the internet. Communities lack space and resources to ensure all musicians can be heard. As this adds up, we’re failing to foster a new generation of music lovers prepared for success in the modern economy.

To address this, we’re making it our mission at Sonos to promote and protect the future of music. Our new initiative, Listen Better, will enable our company to act meaningfully on behalf of our values around music.
