The Sonos Era 300 and Era 100 arrive: smart speakers of the future

Sonos, an audio specialist, presented its new smart columns, or Smart Speakers, this March. We are talking about the Sonos Era 300 and Era 100, which promise to be part of a new chapter in sound and design innovation.

The highlight is the Era 300, designed to deliver the best loud spatial audio experience with Dolby Atmos. Era 100 is a remaster of the best-selling Sonos One.

This family of speakers is tuned by award-winning artists and engineers and embraces Sonos’ new responsible design ideology with energy-efficient technologies and the use of post-consumer recycled materials.

The Era 300 is compact, but packs six powerful drivers that direct sound left, right, forward, and up. Equipped with Dolby Atmos, it puts listeners at the center of your movies and music.

3 key points about the Sonos Era 300

  • Designed for space: The Era 300 wraps its beautiful and complex acoustic architecture in a sleek belted hourglass design, with every angle, proportion, and perforation enhancing sound direction and dispersion to truly surround the user.
  • Surreal Surround Sound: The Era 300 is the first speaker from the brand to provide multi-channel surround sound when used as a home theater system. Moviegoers can pair two speakers with Arc or Beam (Gen 2) to create a rich Dolby Atmos experience that draws them deeper into the action.
  • Deep collaboration with the music industry: SONOS worked closely with its community of leading artists and creators, including Sonos Soundboard members, to meticulously tune the Era 300 so listeners can enjoy sound straight from the studio, which is true to the artist’s intent.
