SONOS Beam Soundbar (Gen 2)

This sound bar's upgraded CPU is 40% faster than the original Beam's. This increased processing power enables two additional audio arrays for enhanced clarity and depth. It has the same number of speakers as the original Beam, but they can all act independently to create 3D sound effects.

The Beam (Gen 2) uses psychoacoustics — the way our brain processes sound in three-dimensional space — to map and project effects so they sound as if they're coming from above or behind you. Its five built-in speakers steer the sound effects for a greater sense of accuracy and immersion. Track sounds as they move in three dimensions, from a helicopter hovering overhead to bullets zipping from one side of the room to the other.

Connect with Sonos

The Beam (Gen 2) is a part of the Sonos wireless multi-room ecosystem, which means you can group it with other Sonos speakers to stream music throughout your home. The Sonos app has an intuitive interface that makes it easy to play whatever you want, wherever you want .

You can play the same song everywhere at once, or different music in each room. You're only ever a couple swipes on your phone away from a house filled with music. Start up the Moana soundtrack in the living room for the kids, and you can still jam to Soundgarden in your office after a long day at work.

Both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa are built-in, which lets you play your favorite tunes with just the sound of your voice. You can even use the sound bar's voice control to give commands to other Sonos equipment it's connected to. A far-field microphone with echo cancellation makes sure your instructions come through clearly. You can play more than music too. Both voice assistant platforms can snag recipes while you're cooking, give you weather updates, help you shop online, set alarms, or control other smart devices in your home.
