If you’re looking to cut a deal on one of Sonos’ pricey smart speakers, bad news: The manufacturer just announced that it will soon increase prices for about a half-dozen of its products, including the popular Sonos one bookshelf speaker and Arc sound bar.
Some of the price increases, which are scheduled to go into effect on September 12, are relatively modest. The portable Sonos Roam, for example, will get a price increase of $ 10, which will increase its price to $ 179. Meanwhile, another portable speaker from Sonos, the $ 399 Move, will not see a price increase at all.
That said, the Sonos Arc soundbar is about to get a huge $ 100 price increase, bringing its total price to $ 899. The $ 699 Sonos Sub and Sonos Amp will also get a substantial price increase. of $ 649, each of which will increase in price by $ 50 this Sunday.
Here’s the full list of Sonos products that are about to get price increases:
Other than the Sonos Move, the $ 99 Sonos Boost wireless adapter won’t get a price increase.
In a statement to TechHive, Sonos blamed price increases (which it had mentioned during its third-quarter earnings call last month) on pandemic-related supply chain restrictions that have affected the entire tech industry.
“We are always evaluating market dynamics, including demand, supply chain and component costs, and the competitive landscape, and making pricing decisions accordingly,” the Sonos statement said.
