The Sonos Move 2 has officially launched and will be available on Malaysian shores (or in stores) starting on the 6th of October 2023. It is open for pre-order starting from the 7th of September at the Sonos Concept Store in The Starhill. Eager Sonos fans can get it for a premium price tag of RM2,799.
The second generation of the Move series brings an overhauled acoustic architecture, according to Sonos, with its dual-tweeter setup and stereo sound. There is Line-in, Bluetooth, and WiFi support available with the ability to connect a pair of Move 2 speakers for a wider sound or other Sonos speakers one has in their own Sonos ecosystem.
Audio playback is quoted to be double that of the previous generation, with up to 24 hours, and you are able to use it as a power bank of sorts to charge your other electronic devices via its USB-C port. The IP56-rated speaker also comes with automatic Trueplay tuning for the best sound in the space the user is in. Other than that, there is a switch to a slider interface system, which is aligned with the latest ERA series control system.
Earth preservationists will be pleased with Sonos’ dedication to sustainability as this speaker reduces idle energy usage by over 40%, uses recycled plastic parts, and has a removable and replaceable battery. Three colors will be available: Black, White, and Olive.
