So easy to set up and has transformed the sound of my tv without using a full home cinema system in a modest sized room. It has especially improved the clarity of voice making films/tv easier to follow and transformed music performances. I love this item and it works easily with the other home Sonos.

Sonos products never cease to amaze me! yes they are expensive, but like anything in life, you get what you pay for. I always consider a SONOS purchase an investment into our family home, and the addition of the sound beam and sub are no different. Infact, the combination of the two are without a doubt the best purchase I have made for a very long time. No review can put into words how good these things sound together. Quite simply, if you are debating buying, juts do it! You wont regret it.

Faultless, high-quality product with crisp sound and punchy bass.

Fantastic sound quality

Gordon Hamm

Great sound. Well worth the money.

Scott Silver

Brilliant little soundbar. Works with my Xbox One X and Apple TV perfectly. I wish it could support Dolby Digital Plus but other than that it's a smart looking little soundbar and sounds great.

Best sound bar I have ever owned. Very easy to setup, and sound is amazing!

David Wilkins

The Sonos Beam was recommended by a friend of mine. He spends his money wisely so I know if he says this product is good then that’s good enough for me. Having bought this I can confirm the reviews on this product are very true. The sound is fantastic and very easy to install as long as you follow the instructions and would recommend this sound bar with no hesitation.

Thomas Green

The Sonos Beam, comes in a very nice looking box, and is extremely well packaged for ultimate protection. The set up of this was extremely easy, (I have 10 Sonos products in my house, so only took a couple of minutes.) For the room this product is in, it ensure great sound quality. If you have a larger room, I would probably recommend the Sonos Playbar, however for the smaller room, eg bedroom, dining room, conservatory etc it is the perfect soundbar.

Took a long time to get set up on my 2018 LG OLED, but eventually made a breakthrough (google it) and everything is now working and sounding great. Fantastic product and looks slick. Good work!

Amy

Great piece of equipment, makes the sound on the TV like a cinema and had loads of great functions. The built in voice assistant is great and you can control the volume through the TV remote as well as on the beam itself.

Great additional to my Sonos setup

Timea Farkas

Awesome little sound bar with a much bigger sound than it should have. Warm, inviting sound, easy controls and setup. I just wish my TV had better connections.

Angela Burt

Great all round sound.

Mark

Nice piece of kit, looks and sounds great. Setup not as easy as expected with Panasonic TV and Netflix but sorted in the end.

Christopher Boseley

Excellent service, arrived the next day as promised, guarantee is great and the device is excellent too. All round very good service.

Tim

I was a little sceptical about purchasing the Sonos Beam but I’m very happy with the sound quality it produces. Far better than my Sky Soundbox

Brian

Purchased the Sonos Beam along with 2 x Sonos One (Gen 2) for a three rooms set up - great quality product and sound quality is excellent. Looking forward to expelling the system in future.

Having redecorated my living room and removed all the wires for the speakers. I wanted a sound bar that would do the job but it something huge which would be bigger than my existing tv and stand. I’ve always used an surround sound amplifier and speakers so I wasn’t expecting this to be up to much in comparison. My wife always says how she doesn’t get all this sound stuff. But I plugged the Sonos Beam in and although you really need some surround speakers, the sound was pretty good for such a small device. We sat down just to watch some normal tv and from that could still here things we hadn’t noticed before. My wife actually commented that the sound was so much better. A few movies from Netflix and we were very impressed. It could maybe do with a bit more bass. But I can’t fault it for price/features.

Paul Harvey

I am very pleasantly surprised and impressed with the overall quality of the Beam. The build quality is very high and gives confidence it will last. It seems expensive at first, but when you factor in all its features, the build quality, it’s great sound quality and the way it can be the start of a multi room system I can happily recommend it. We effectively down graded from a top of the range Samsung sound bar and sub from a few years back. My partner was not over keen with the size of the bar and especially the sub which was massive. So we decided to compromise and purchased the Beam , our first Sonos item. I was not expecting any miracles from the Beam, but don’t be fooled by the size, as the Beam produces a lovely, wide sound stage with surprising bass and power. One of the best features (apart from Alexa and Spotify integration) was the way it made speech sound so very clear! One of the problems with many sound bars is the way dialogue can disappear into the background, especially during action scenes. This never happens with the Beam. Dialogue is always clear and this is with the standard settings. I’m glad we bought the Beam and don’t miss our larger and supposedly more powerful predecessor. This is my first Sonos purchase and quite likely not my last!

Simon Drake

Better sound than I expected for a compact sound bar. Will add the Sonos one speakers as surrounds as soon as funds allow.

Guest

Absolutely awesome. High quality sound and plenty of it. We have one open plan living area, 8m x 10m. This fills the room. Very easy to set up and use. Alexa voice control is tremendous and the Alexa and Sonos apps work well. It's not often that I buy something which exceeds my expectations. This does.

  • Simple setup and control
  • Apple Airplay 2 compatible
Immersive home cinema experience

Immersive home cinema experience

Experience your favourite movies better than ever before with the Sonos Beam. Developed by Oscar winning sound engineers, the Beam emphasises human voice to help you follow the story and supercharges the bass to take you deeper into the action.

 

Add surrounds without the wires

The Beam gives you the front 3 channels in a 5.1 set up. Wirelessly add 2x Sonos One or One SL as surround sound rears or take things one step further by adding the Sonos Sub for extra bass and to provide a fully immersive home cinema experience. 



Superb sound output

Superb sound output

With four full-range drivers and a tweeter, the Beam produces a crystal clear sound. By the nature of it’s design, the speaker also pushes the sound wider and further, giving you a broad sound that demands attention.

To make sure you get that ‘edge of the seat’ thrill’ action movies are designed for, three passive radiators supercharge the bass making you feel every explosion and engine rev that graces your screen. 

Nightmode is a handy inbuilt feature allowing you to suppress louder, more ‘bass-y’ sounds, making sure you don’t wake up the kids!

Speech Enhancement makes more of  the vocal sound channel, a great feature if you occasionally struggle to follow what’s being said.

Voice control from either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant

Voice control from either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant

Choose between Alexa or Google Assistant to control the Sonos Beam using your voice. Search for any artist or song, turn on your TV, check the news and even control your smart home hands-free.

With five, far-field microphones built-in Beam can hear your commands from the opposite side of the room, even when music is playing.

As seen in other voice-controlled Sonos products, Sonos respects that privacy is paramount. Use the mute button on the top panel to cut the power to the microphones whenever you want. If the LED is off, the microphone isn’t powered.

Sleek, compact design

Sleek, compact design

Compact and sleek design fits snuggly in spaces where ordinary soundbars won’t.

Slim height and depth also make the Beam visually sleek and unobtrusive, allowing you to focus on the TV you're watching and not the speaker.

There are a range of accessories available for the Sonos Beam including wall mounts. 

Simple set-up

Simple set-up

Set up couldn’t be easier. Simply plug into mains then connect to your TV via HDMI-ARC. If you don’t have HDMI-ARC on your TV, just use the connection converter in the box to link via Optical. 

You’ll then need to set up the Beam on the Sonos App, a quick process that takes a couple of minutes and unlocks great music streaming over wi-fi.

Setting up the Beam with your remote is also simple, making control seamless. In contrast to more traditional home cinema systems, you save drastically on wiring and set up time.

Sonos Beam FAQs

Sonos Beam FAQs

Q - What is HDMI-ARC?

A - ARC stands for Audio Return Channel. Most TVS will have a HDMI- ARC port, enabling synchronisation of audio and picture as well as pairing with your TV remote. If your TV doesn’t have a HDMI-ARC port, the Beam comes with an optical audio adapter to connect your Beam via the optical port on the TV. You don’t lose much through this method of connection, but Optical will prevent you turning the TV on and off using voice.

Q - Can I wall mount Sonos Beam?

A - Yes the Beam can be wall mounted. Check out our Sonos Beam accessories page for more information.

Q - What audio codecs and formats will Sonos Beam support?

A - Sonos Beam plays audio from PCM stereo and Dolby Digital sources.

Q - What if my TV supports a codec that isn’t one of the supported by Sonos Beam?

A - When connected via HDMI-ARC, the Beam automatically detects and selects the best format for both your TV and the Beam. If using the Optical Audio Adapter, PCM stereo and Dolby Digital are supported.
