Sonos has finally answered the prayers of audiophiles and frequent travellers alike with the debut of its highly anticipated Sonos Ace Headphones.

Given the brand’s reputation for delivering superior audio experiences, the excitement surrounding this launch was real. Sonos fans have eagerly awaited a venture into the headphone market for years, and from what is known so far, the Sonos Ace promises not to disappoint.

Features // Sonos Ace Headphones

The Sonos Ace Headphones are packed with advanced features tailored for discerning users who value both sound quality and travel-friendly design. These headphones boast a plethora of features that will ensure an unparalleled auditory experience.

The transparency mode will be particularly useful for travellers, allowing them to stay aware of important announcements or conversations without removing the headphones.

The Sonos Ace’s battery life is equally impressive. With up to 30 hours of playback on a single charge, users can enjoy uninterrupted music for longer without the need for a charge.

All Day Power

Additionally, the quick-charge feature ensures that a brief 3-minute charge can extend playback by another 3 hours.

Navigating through your playlists and adjusting settings on the Sonos Ace Headphones is effortless with their intuitive touch controls, or, as these are Sonos, users can use the app.

The Sonos app enhances the user experience by allowing customisation of sound profiles. Users can adjust various audio settings to suit their preferences, ensuring a personalised listening experience.

Sonos Ace leverages everything we’ve learned over two decades as an audio leader to bring stunning sound, sleek design and long-standing comfort to one of the largest and most popular audio categories worldwide.


The app also facilitates seamless integration with other Sonos devices, enabling multi-room audio setups and easy management of music libraries and streaming services.


“Unmistakably Sonos” is one way to describe the new Ace Headphones!

They offer a combination of elegance and practicality, including over-ear memory foam cushions, which will provide exceptional comfort for extended listening sessions—something many will need with 30 hours of playback!

The outer casing is constructed from premium, lightweight plastic, which ensures the headphones remain sturdy yet easy to carry.

Additionally, the headphones are semi-foldable, making them easy to store and carry in the provided carry-case.
