(Cybertech) – Sonos has sent out invites for a “special event” taking place on Tuesday 9 March 2021. The company’s CEO Patrick Spence previously confirmed a new product was on the horizon and would be revealed in March, but a specific date was not given at the time.
The invite doesn’t give much away in terms of what the company might reveal during the special event, showing the back of a woman with a small backpack on, seemingly out on a walk or hike of some sort.
Rumours have all pointed towards Sonos launching headphones, as well as a smaller bluetooth speaker than the current Sonos Move. The invite doesn’t confirm either, though it does suggest a product that can be taken on the move, meaning both are still plausible announcements in March.
The Sonos special event will take place at 13:00 PST, which is 21:00 GMT. It will be livestreamed on Sonos.press so you’ll be able to follow live as the new product is announced.
The headphones are said to be over-ears and come with a number of features, including USB Type-C, a 3.5mm line-in and noise cancelling. The Bluetooth speaker is expected to be smaller, and more affordable than Move. It is also expected to have a different form factor, with the FCC documents suggesting cylindrical.
