Here’s our in-depth Sonos Ace video review

Hopefully, by now, you’ve read through my written review of the Sonos Ace headphones. They’re an extremely impressive first effort from the company, but with several features still in the “coming soon” column, it feels like they were rushed.

In this video review, I go deeper into what Sonos got right with the Ace and what still needs work. There’s also a segment where I cover why these aren’t quite the magical Wi-Fi headphones that many of the brand’s most loyal customers had long dreamed of. Crucially, the Ace can’t be grouped with other Sonos speakers, but at one point, the company prototyped headphones that could.

It turns out, they sucked — at least within the confines of today’s technology. This Reddit AMA post goes into more detail about the battery and CPU constraints. (The Ace have just a sliver of the CPU power compared to regular Sonos speakers, even including the Roam.) I hope we get there someday; it’d be wonderful to listen to vinyl through the Ace or have them seamlessly hand off music to my speakers when I walk through the door at home. Maybe next time.

Speaking of the Roam, I’ve got a short review of the new second-gen model coming up in the days ahead. After that, I’ll finally be able to come up for air and focus on non-Sonos products for a while — until the next leak that is.
