Product Information

  • Six drivers: The three tweeters and three mid-woofers, each with their own class D amplifier, deliver you an impressive sonic experience. The arrangement of three drivers above and three drivers below produces clear and powerful sound.
  • WiFi streaming: Play music from your library, choose a station from one of the many internet radio stations available, or stream from popular services like Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, and Amazon Music. It's all possible with the free SONOS Controller app, avaible for smartphone, tablet, and desktop computer.
  • Touch control: You can also control the SONOS PLAY:5 speaker using the built-in touchpad. With the tap of a finger, you can change the volume, play and pause the music, and swipe left or right to change the song.
  • Multi-room listening: Play different songs in different rooms or let your favorite song fill the whole house. When you add other speakers to your SONOS PLAY:5, you can take advantage of the multi-room function.
  • Trueplay tuning: Thanks to this unique technology from SONOS, the sound of the PLAY:5 speaker is adjusted to the particular properties of the room it's in.
  • Combinable: The SONOS PLAY:5 can be used on its own or combined with a second PLAY:5 to produce stereo sound. To set up two speakers as a stereo set, just place them both horizontally and they will automatically play in stereo. To get even more out of your sound system, add a SONOS PLAYBAR and experience home-theater sound.
  • Amazon Alexa: "Alexa, play music on the SONOS PLAY:5" - this WiFi speaker can also be controlled using voice commands, as long as you have an Amazon Echo or SONOS One.

The SONOS PLAY:5 WiFi speaker in action

The SONOS PLAY:5 plays your favorite songs with warm, deep sound. Even at high volumes, the sound remains clear. And thanks to its connection to WiFi, it can stream music all by itself – meaning that there's no need to wear down the battery on your smartphone streaming background music.

The advantages: higher sound quality, streaming without interruptions, and sound that is customized for the room you place it in. This WiFi speaker from SONOS is easy to install, use, and expand on.

A true sonic experience with Trueplay

When you set up your SONOS PLAY:5 for the first time, you have the option of optimizing the sound using SONOS's Trueplay software. Trueplay uses the microphone on your iOS device to measure how sound is reflected from the walls, furniture, and other surfaces in a room. It then adjusts the settings on your WiFi speaker to deliver you flawless sound. SONOS speakers sound great in any case, but Trueplay brings you even more faithful sound.

More than just WiFi

In addition to playing music using WiFi, this streaming speaker offers you the option of connecting external devices using a 3.5 mm cable. This makes it possible to play music from your friends' smartphones, a connected record player, and other devices. The best part: if you have more than one SONOS speaker, you can then stream the music from the PLAY:5 to other speakers.

Still singing a cappella in the shower?

The cherry on top of this WiFi speaker is its humidity-resistant casing. This means you can place it in rooms like the bathroom or kitchen without worrying about the moisture. However, it is not water- or weatherproof, so make sure that it doesn't get too wet.

Can I control the SONOS PLAY:5 using voice commands?

The PLAY:5 WiFi speaker is compatible with Amazon Alexa. So if you have a SONOS One or an Amazon Echo or Echo dot, you can control your PLAY: 5 with just your voice.

How does Trueplay work?

The sound from a speaker is reflected from the walls, furniture, and other surfaces in a room before it reaches your ear. Due to these reflections, some frequencies can sound softer or louder than they do in the studio mix. Trueplay determines these acoustic properties of a room and then adjusts the settings on your speaker accordingly.

What speaker configurations are supported by Trueplay?

Trueplay is compatible with single speakers as well as with two speakers used as a stereo pair. It can also be used when the SONOS SUB is added to either of these configurations.
