In recent years, multi-room audio specialist Sonos has established itself as one of the leaders in the soundbar market with the Sonos Beam (Gen 2) and Sonos Arc. The manufacturer will soon tackle entry-level bars, with the Sonos Fury. Still kept secret by the brand, the latter should offer a more compact and affordable alternative to previous Sonos soundbars.
Sonos Fury: the smallest Sonos bar
Known internally as S36, the upcoming Sonos Fury soundbar will be the brand’s smallest. With a length of 55cm, it is 10cm shorter than the Sonos Beam (Gen 2), promising a more harmonious association with small televisions. However, the Sonos Fury is still 6.9cm deep and 10cm high. We would have appreciated a slimmer format in order to integrate it more easily in front of a recent television, like one of the models in our “10 thin soundbars that will fit under the TV” article.
Sonos Fury: more affordable
The Sonos Fury soundbar should be available from June 2022 for a price of around €249. A price much lower than that charged by the manufacturer for its previous models: €499 for the Sonos Beam (Gen 2) and €999 for the Sonos Arc. As expected, this more attractive price implies the absence of certain features such as Dolby Atmos, as well as the microphones for voice assistant compatibility. In addition, the Sonos Furry could also have no HDMI input, leaving only the possibility of connecting it optically. It would then support Dolby Digital surround sound. Of course, it will be compatible with the Sonos multi-room ecosystem in WiFi, allowing it to be associated with the brand’s connected speakers and subwoofers to create a wireless 5.1 system. As such, the brand could also launch a more compact subwoofer: the Sonos Mini Sub.
Sonos Mini Sub: the smallest subwoofer from Sonos
To accompany its connected speakers and soundbars, the American manufacturer currently has the third-generation Sonos Sub wireless subwoofer. Although it is already very compact and visually discreet, the manufacturer seems to want to go even further with a smaller and cheaper subwoofer: the Sonos Sub Mini, known internally as the S37. Again, this model is kept secret by the brand, but its name was mistakenly leaked in November in the Sonos mobile application. According to other leaks, it seems to adopt a cylindrical shape and is smaller than the current Sonos Sub. Its price is still unknown, but it will undoubtedly be below the Sonos Sub (Gen 3)’s €849 price tag.
With the upcoming Sonos Fury soundbar and Sonos Mini Sub, the multi-room specialist will offer more affordable products for the home.
