Looks like Sonos is working on a new subwoofer, and it should be smaller and cheaper than the Sonos Sub. Mention of the Sonos Sub Mini was spotted within the Sonos app by a keen-eyed Redditor (via The Verge).

The mention appeared within the option to connect a second subwoofer. According to the app, the Sub Mini is a "smaller, cylindrical subwoofer", as opposed to the hulking 16kg Sonos Sub. Because of its smaller size and (presumably) lower power, the Sub Mini should also be cheaper than the £600 ($699, AU$1099) Sonos Sub. Which many would welcome.

The app also lets slip that you won't be able to add two Sub Minis to your Sonos set-up. So if you want more low-end rumble, the standard Sub is the way to go.

This isn't the only new device up Sonos' sleeve. The firm has been rumoured to have a pair of wireless noise-cancelling headphones in the pipeline, and they could even launch before the end of this year. Fingers crossed.

    The Sonos App is unfortunaly outdated for me and lags for 10-20 seconds when changing the volume.
    As I told them: If they made their products to last longer than 5-7 years I´d be happy to get more speakers to add to my home. As Sonos works today, I have to replace every speaker instead as time goes by.
    I got an old stereo from 1975 that still works, not super but charming. A separate streamer is the only way to go, for all of us unless we want to build mountains of 10 year old hi-fi garbage.

    If you´re stubborn, rich and ignorant and still want Sonos products, only get the latest products.
