SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE) – Sonos, Inc.

“We are very excited and proud to become a part of Sonos,” said Mattias Scheek, CEO of Mayht. “Our dream has always been to set a new standard in the audio industry. The integration of our technology into Sonos products will further revolutionize high quality sound.”
