    Pros: 1. Superior Active Noise Cancellation (ANC): The standout feature of the Sonos Ace headphones is undoubtedly the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). The ANC performance is top-notch, effectively drowning out ambient noise and creating an immersive listening experience. Whether you’re in a busy office, on a noisy commute, or simply trying to enjoy some quiet time at home, the ANC does an excellent job of keeping distractions at bay. Compared to other headphones in this price range, the Sonos Ace holds its ground remarkably well. 2. Sound Quality: The sound quality is another high point. The audio is crisp, with a balanced mix of bass, mids, and highs. Music genres from classical to rock sound fantastic, and podcasts and audiobooks are clear and easy to listen to. The headphones handle both high and low volumes without distortion, making them versatile for different listening preferences. 3. Comfort and Build: The Sonos Ace headphones are lightweight yet sturdy, crafted with high-quality materials that feel durable. The ear cups are well-padded and comfortable, even for extended listening sessions. The adjustable headband ensures a snug fit without being too tight, which is perfect for long-term wear. 4. Aware Mode: The Aware Mode (Sonos’ version of transparency mode) is another highlight. It seamlessly blends external sounds with your audio, making it easy to stay aware of your surroundings without removing the headphones. This feature is particularly useful when you need to have quick conversations or be alert in busy environments. Cons: 1. Initial Charging Issues: One frustrating aspect I encountered was the difficulty in getting the headphones to charge initially. Despite following the instructions, the headphones didn’t seem to charge properly the first few times. After some troubleshooting and trying different cables and outlets, the issue eventually resolved itself, but it was an inconvenient start. This could be a potential deal-breaker for those who expect a hassle-free setup out of the box. 2. Price: While the Sonos Ace headphones offer great features and performance, they come with a premium price tag. For some, this might be a significant investment, especially when there are other competitive options available at lower price points. Final Verdict The Sonos Ace headphones excel in delivering high-quality sound and exceptional ANC, making them a great choice for audiophiles and frequent travelers. However, the initial charging issues can be a bit of a setback. If you’re willing to overlook this minor inconvenience, the Sonos Ace headphones are a solid investment for anyone seeking a premium audio experience.

    Solid debut

    The hype of these headphones prior to launch was unknown to me. I’m aware of their speakers for home & entertainment. Era 100 & 300 got me into the Sonos brand. When notified by Sonos of their Ace, I preordered. Initially I was expecting a lot considering the price point. But after a few days of ownership I can say it’s a solid debut. The sound signature did take some getting used too without messing with the simple EQ avail (Bass, Treble, and Fade) The bass is apparent but not overwhelming and Treble is crystal clear but not ear piercing. With the likes of Bose QC Ultra for comparison; those seem more bright in signature. Sonos Ace has a more darker tone & balanced signature. I thought it was lacking personality initially, but after putting in more listening time, it’s definitely Sonos sound but in your ears. I don’t own an Arc soundbar to test its sound swap feature; that’s the one thing it has over its competitors. The look of the Ace is Sonos. Very simply & minimalistic. If AirPods Max & XM5’s had a child, this would be it. The carrying case is also well constructed with recycled materials. Plus despite weighing a few grams more than Sony’s & Bose top tier offering; these feel remarkably light & comfortable to wear. It’s not an exaggeration. The ear cups are held by strong magnets. If those need replacements down the line, that option is available to you. Overall satisfied with these headphones. Can improvement be made for a version 2? Yes. Wish it had WiFi support like it’s other products. But what is presented is a wonderful pair of premium headphones.

    These are great headphones! The ANC works well, Bluetooth switching between devices is super easy, and they look great. I do wish the bass was a little bit louder but I adjusted that in the Sonos apps.

    Truly Top Notch Headphones!

    Sonos has made a name for themselves as being a premiere speaker provider with their excellent line of speakers, soundbars, subwoofers, and more. However, they have notably never had any sort of headphones - until now of course. The Sonos Ace have been anticipated and my experience so far has not been disappointing! PROS: - Immediately I was impressed with the design of these! They look so modern yet sleek and slim. They have a nice premium feel to them, and I love the removable cups as well. - Setup is largely a breeze. They work via Bluetooth and you simply use the Sonos app to set them up (or you can just connect them via Bluetooth) and you are ready to go! The Sonos apps comes with some EQ settings and others to tweak if you want to. - The sound quality is superb! I found the bass to be very impactful, the vocals to be crisp, and overall felt like a concert on my ears. - The noise cancellation is also very impressive. It does a great job drowning out the background noise to let you focus in, but with a click of a button you can switch to aware mode to hear everything around you which is a really nice feature. - Speaking of the buttons, I surprisingly loved the physical button controls! You see a lot more touch controls in headphones but I found the way Sonos made their buttons as very easy to use, there is no room for error, and its simple enough where it does not feel like you have so many buttons to push. - Also with buttons comes another cool feature, the soundbar switch. Once you set it up with your Sonos Arc, you just long press the silver play button and it will automatically switch whatever you have playing on your Arc soundbar to your Ace headphones. It really helps tie in your whole Sonos system together and makes for a useful feature when you are watching something on TV and do not want to wake anyone or maybe you just want a surround experience. - The Aces also have head tracking which allows for some really fun Dolby Atmos viewing or even listening without the soundbar. - Lastly, I love how fast they charge and how easily they charge. Everything is done via USB-C and can even hardwire into your phone/laptop via a USB-C jack which they include. CONS: - At the time of this writing, Sonos just released a new app for their speakers and headphones that replaced the old app they had. It’s been met with some criticism but I largely have liked the new app. However, when it comes to the headphones it does feel that they are still building the app to catch up with the hardware they have now. I have faith Sonos will remedy this, but just be aware the app experience can be inconsistent. - Speaking of which, one of the best features of the Sonos speakers system is you can pick and chose which speakers play music at a certain time. As in you could have 5 speakers play the same music at the same time if you so wanted! But the headphones are left out of this cool feature meaning you can not group the same music on your kitchen speakers and headphone at the same time if you wanted to. BOTTOM LINE: - In a world full of competing high end headphones, the Sonos Ace stand out. They look amazing, sound amazing, have very useful buttons for ease of use, and the soundbar to headphones switch is super easy to use and convenient! It’s also hard pressed to find all the high end features this comes with and this price point - Sonos made a hit through and through!

    A new midrange ANC headphone that lacks identity

    PROS: premium feeling lightweight and comfortable physical buttons beautiful case in the box (all $300+ headphones should have a case, but sadly they don't) CONS: lacks a signature sound (too neutral with no punch) doesn't work with all Sonos soundbars doesn't function fully with Android devices (the Arc switch) relies too much on Apple's influence no audio over wifi (a feature we all wanted) price doesn't work wired without battery turned on Sonos has been my go-to for audio speakers for quite some time now. I purchased a pair of the original Play 1s in 2014, less than a year after they debuted. Since then, I've gotten nine additional speakers from them to use all around the house and outside the home (Sonos Move and Sonos Roam). I've had very few negative experiences with owning them throughout those years. Despite minor hiccups with internet-dependent devices, my experience with Sonos products has been premium. The recent app update may have sparked some debate among Sonos owners, but it hasn't affected the seamless integration of the new Sonos Ace headphones. These headphones, which connect effortlessly via Bluetooth to any device and through a user-friendly app, have been a breeze to use. I was able to add them to my collection using my Android app, even with my wife's iOS device nearby. According to Sonos, headphones have long been the most requested product. They've been in the lab for years, developing what they believe is one of the best ANC headphones on the market. When unboxing them, you will soon see they are another premium device that shows how much care the company puts into quality. These are incredibly lightweight yet feel premium in every single way. From the physical buttons to the steel adjustable headband, these headphones feel and look like a Sonos product. You can tell the Apple Airpod Max inspired them - which makes sense because Sonos has always felt like an Apple device. Owning an Apple device enhances your experience with Sonos. For example, an iOS device can use Trueplay (an advanced auto-tuning tool for your speakers), yet an Android device cannot. And even though the Android Sonos app has improved much over the years, the iOS app has always been more fluid and trouble-free. As far as these Ace headphones go, owning an iOS device is required to use the function of changing from Bluetooth audio to listening through your Sonos Arc. Currently, this is the only soundbar available to listen to TV audio. The beam will be available later, which is nice to know. As an Android user, Sonos chose to prioritize Apple in this regard, and I can't help but feel slighted by that. Especially considering Apple is their biggest competitor in this headphone space. It makes sense to prioritize Android for the Ace because Apple users have the Airpod Max available, which works seamlessly with Apple devices. Sonos wants to be known as either a product for all or just for iOS users. Having some features available on one platform and not the other doesn't make sense. Thankfully, in my case, my wife's work phone is an iPhone, and I could test the "button" to switch from music to TV audio through our Arc. The audio switching works well. It's reasonably seamless and doesn't have trouble with lagging after the button is pressed. This is causing many Sonos users to use the Arc. I do wish, however, that it worked for ALL products before launch - when I hear the words "it's coming..." it makes me feel like the product is in a beta phase. What about the sound? That's the number one crucial feature for me. I'm a headphone lover. I own more than ten different over-the-ear headphones. Each has a distinct sound stage and signature, yet I have my favorites to listen to regularly. For reference, I'll list some of my own: Blue Ellas, Mark Levinson no.5909, Bowers & Wilkins PX8, and PX7s. The Mark Levinson's, for example, retails for $1000, so comparing them with Ace's may be unfair. On the other hand, each of these sets of cans has a distinct sound signature that differentiates them from one another, and that is where the Sonos Ace lacks, in my opinion. The sound is very balanced and crisp but lacks much bass or soundstage. In other words, it's too neutral. You can, however, change the equalizer in the Sonos app. It works well if you want to raise the bass, for example. But a sign of a new headphone is not having to use the equalizer. Most people who wish for a distinct sound will use the equalizer. I was also surprised that Ace does not have a passive mode. You have to turn it on for both Bluetooth and wired audio. I'd love for it to be used with no battery and a wire. The ANC works very well, too. The sound is isolated quite well when you turn it on, and the transparency is better than average. In that regard, they aren't better than the AirPods Max, but those are tough to beat. The Ace's ANC features do well for a $450 pair of headphones. The battery is excellent, though. It is supposed to last 30 hours, and for listening to them often for about a week, I only had to charge them once towards the end of that period. The one feature I looked forward to the most with the Sonos Ace was audio over wifi (like the Sonos speakers do). That would have set these headphones apart from the plethora of other options. I'd love to listen over wifi and hear superior audio that doesn't rely on Bluetooth. You'd think Sonos would have continued to develop that feature into their debut headphones, but I understand that technologically, that may not be possible in 2024. The Sonos Ace is a good pair of headphones if you want something to use with your Sonos Arc. If you don't have an Arc, I'd say there are plenty of other headphones that sound better or the ANC better. My favorite ANC headphones are my Mark Levinson, but there are also the Focal Bathys if you want to get top-of-the-line ANC wireless headphones. For $450, I think the price point may be a bit high. I'd like to see these go for the $350 mark due to the need for more separation from other products. Sure, you can listen to TV audio through the Sonos Arc easily, but most TVs have Bluetooth capabilities anyway, so it's not a groundbreaking feature - it's just a tad convenient.

    Good, But Not Quite Great, Headphone from Sonos

    PROS + Lightweight and comfortable for long periods of time, particularly fantastic headband with smoothly adjusting earcups + Minimalist aesthetic fits well with other Sonos product + Removable magnetic earpads that can be swapped + Solid sound with good imaging and great detail, which is great for spatial audio + Spatial audio sounds good and feels more open despite the closed-back nature of the headphones + ANC & Audio Passthrough, while not the best I have heard, do a good enough job for their purposes + Physical buttons on the headphones provide most of the control you would need without needing the app + TV Audio Swap works seamlessly and sounds good for personal home theater listening, with no latency issues + Bluetooth 5.4 support + Included hard carrying case for storage + Long battery life CONS - Missing a bunch Sonos-specific ecosystem features you would want/expect at launch (no wifi-streaming to the headphones except for TV Audio Swap, no integration with other Sonos products for multi-room listening or streaming audio, can’t use the Sonos app to play content to the headphones, TV Audio Swap only supports Sonos Arc at launch, etc.) - EQ is too basic, only letting you adjust three bands (Bass, Treble, & Left-Right Balance). I wish I could have adjusted the mids, as the default sound signature, while not bad, isn’t quite to my taste - Earcups are pretty small for my ears and the vegan leather pads, while comfortable, get warm - Carrying case leaves something to be desired. Specifically it has no handle, uses a recycled fiber-like fabric that I am personally not a fan of the texture of, has a sharp edge around the recessed zipper, and only fits the headphones in their smallest configuration, so I have to resize it for my head every time I take them out - Headphones regularly disconnected from the app and needed to be reconnected by power cycling the headphones and/or app. Not deal-breaking, but annoying when trying to do things like adjust EQ. SO-SO * Overall sound quality is good, but not remarkable in my opinion. My opinion changed a lot on it. For some things I liked it, others not so much. They have very good detail (things like drum reverb is well represented), but the neutral signature doesn’t feel very neutral, almost sounding a bit more v-shaped to my ears. Some may like it, others might not, but given the simple EQ and lack of audio profiles, not much can be done if it isn’t to your taste. * Minimalist aesthetic also makes them a bit unremarkable looking in the market of wireless headphones, depending on your preferences Some uncommon connectivity bugs that would lead to brief (1-2 second) crackling in the sound, usually when connecting to an audio device or right after TV Audio Swap THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT I wish I could give ½ star ratings, because to me this is a very solid 3.5 star product. I am a big headphone lover, having collected quite a few pairs over the years. I wouldn’t consider myself a true ‘audiophile’, but I do think I am a pretty discerning consumer when it comes to audio. The Sonos Ace are what I would call a solid “good” headphone, but a bit unremarkable, at least at launch, given their asking price and the market as a whole. I have used Sonos products for many years in my home and I am quite familiar with their ecosystem. However, despite being their first headphones, there is not a lot in the Sonos Ace that feels like a distinctly Sonos product. I have a lot of mixed opinions after using them for a broad range of content. On the one hand, I personally really like the design, build quality, and comfort. They are minimalist with a matte black finish that looks great and are extremely comfortable to wear. They are lightweight, and all buttons have a nice tactile feel that makes them feel very well built. They are primarily plastic, but that does pay rewards in comfort. The one big exception for me being the earcups, which feel a bit too small for my larger ears, and whose earpads (while comfortable), got too warm for me after an hour or two of use. Thankfully they are magnetically removable to clean off. The headphones also have all of the standard bluetooth headphone features you would expect. You can connect via Bluetooth 5.4, use the buttons on the earcups to adjust volume, play/pause, skip, etc., change between ANC and audio passthrough modes, and you can connect to 2 bluetooth devices with multipoint connection. The ANC is good, in keeping with the competition, and the audio passthrough works well. Neither feel very natural, but they are both effective enough and what they are setting out to do, and most importantly for me, they have no negative effects on the sound quality at all. Where the headphones are more mixed for me is in terms of the sound quality, and overall features for the cost. On the sound quality front, I really liked them for some things, like spatial audio mixes and home theater listening, but for regular stereo listening, they were a bit mixed for me. I personally found the mids a bit lacking, and low-end detailed, but missing a bit of thump, at least out of the box. Thankfully I was able to EQ the bass up a bit which I liked, but the overall sound profile still didn’t feel very balanced, with no ways to adjust the mids or swap any preset profiles. They definitely aren’t neutral sounding, almost leaning a bit v-shaped or bright. Honestly, I think a lot of people will like this out of the box just fine, and some people will probably even prefer their default sound signature, but for me, I found them a bit fatiguing and imbalanced for my tastes. They absolutely do not sound bad at all, so I highly recommend trying them for yourself if you can at an in-store demo, but for the cost of them and their brand, I had higher expectations. Thankfully, where they do perform well is with spatial audio mixes. Dolby Atmos from Apple Music sounded largely fantastic with good spatial presence and imaging. Likewise, using the TV Audio Swap feature with the Sonos Arc worked very seamlessly, swapping audio with one click of a button, and no noticeable latency between the screen and the sound I was hearing. Effects were well placed, and there was good spatial separation. The head tracking I wasn’t a big fan of and tended to disable. It certainly worked, but wasn’t very natural sounding to me. At launch there was no ability to tune the audio with Trueplay or otherwise, and the TV Audio Swap feature only works with the Arc at launch. And this is my biggest disappointment, as other than TV Audio Swap, and using the Sonos App (which I have mixed opinions on), the headphones don’t feel very different from any other bluetooth headphones for their price. You cannot even play music to the headphones with the Sonos app, which feels very strange, or use other Sonos enabled devices to stream audio to the headphones. It would be great to be able to instantly swap audio from my other speakers to my headphones when I am ready to leave the room or not trying to disturb someone, but at the moment they are separate systems entirely. On the whole these are not bad headphones at all, but given their asking price at launch, and the expectations coming from a brand like Sonos with such a deep ecosystem, they do feel a bit underwhelming for me. I can see others’ mileage varying, and I do highly recommend trying them for yourself. This is also a product I can see getting better over time as software updates enable more features, but at launch, it is hard for me to wholeheartedly recommend them without caveats.

    Excellent first foray by Sonos

    Sonos has finally come to market with a upper end set of cans in the $400+ price range, but can they compete with other similarly priced headphones? Arriving in very industrial but basic packaging, you get your headphones semi pre-charged, a USB-C to USB-C cable, USB-C to 1/8", carrying case, smaller carrying pouch inside for your two cables and some literature. I very much like Sonos packaging and looks. Taking a first look and wear of the Aces, they are aesthetically pleasing and streamlined. Compared to Apple's Airpod Max's, they are much lighter and incredibly comfortable. If you're worried about having a larger sized head, don't be. I wear a size 8 hat and they fit very nicely. They feel much better than Apple's Airpod Max's and Studio Pro's 2 and 3 for fitment. I was very pleased with how they feel and look. I compared the Aces versus my original Studio Detox wired headphones, Studio 2 and Studio 3 Pros and Apple's Airpod Max's. I also have a range of lesser priced headphones thrown in the mix for comparison. You can use them right out of the box, but you will definitely want to download and use the Sonos App as there is a sizeable update waiting for them which can be installed via bluetooth. Speaking of the app, as soon as you pair them to an iphone you will have the opportunity to install the app as you can click right through to the store and download it. Be warned there are two apps for Sonos. Their older app they've used for quite some time and their newer version released this year. You will need to use the newer version. I tested the Ace's in a number of scenarios including wired directly into a DAC on my computer along with wireless with my phone and my AppleTV which is the newest 3rd generation 4k model. For headphone song testing I always use the following selections: The Spinners "Rubber Band Man" Remastered - I like this one because it has excellent mids with the twang of the strings that lesser headphones can lose pretty quickly. Samuel Barber's "Adagio for Strings" - The extreme highs on this at 50%+ will crack and break up lesser headphones very badly. Kitaro's "Caravansary" - Perfect blend of highs and lows with a bit of bass punch to give you an overall soundscape with subtle harp mids that can get lost on some headphones Lil Wayne's "6x9" - Will absolutely show the limitations of bass on some headphones that can't hit that deep thump of the hook BASS: The Ace's faired very well. Let me start this off by saying if you prefer a lot of rich, deep, heavy Bass the Ace's are not for you. They lack the teeth rattling bass of the Detox's and the bottom hit of the Studio 2/3. Their Bass doesn't even match a few pairs of very low end gaming headphones in terms of punch and vibrate. Is this a bad thing? Not really as what Sonos has done is present a very balanced soundscape from top to bottom and usually what is sacrificed in that is enhanced Bass. Even adjusting for more bass, it just doesn't hit like some of the other headphones. I love bass, but I prefer that soul jarring bass to be external so it's ok. Lil Wayne's "6x9" quickly showed the limitations of the Ace headphones. HIGHS: They passed the Adagio for Strings test with flying colors and didn't even have a hint of cracking or breaking even at 75% volume (which I had to hold away a bit from my ears as it was too loud) which is fantastic. All the subtle highs of Caravansary were there and on full display. I even picked up on some subtle little studio clicks and sounds on Rubber Band Man that I had only heard on my Airpod Max's. When you're in this price range, the separation is the subtle little nuances in sound and the Ace delivered where it needed. MIDS: The ultimate test for mids, for me at least, continues to be Rubber Band Man. The snapping and twanging of the rubber bands as the song hums along really will let you know where your mids rank and the Aces had no problems presenting them front and center and easy to discern from everything else. Audio quality the Aces are a solid 9/10. ANC (aka noise cancellation): Phenomenal. Out of all my ANC enabled headphones, I think the Sonos do the best job and where I test I have a very strong and loud blower. I didn't even realize it was on till I took them off even with no audio playing. With my Studio headsets I can always hear the blower in all situations to a degree even farther away. I can even hear it a bit with the Max's. Some of it has to do with the absolute comfortable seal the Aces provide around my ear. One other thing is I have found in the past some ANC can cause me slight ear discomfort rather quickly. I did not experience this with the Aces. Easy 10/10 AppleTV: Since the Aces are standard bluetooth equipped headphones, pairing them to my AppleTV, just like my iphone, was straight forward and easy. I tested them compared to my Studio 2 and 3 Pro sets along with Airpod Max's. Watching Foundation Season 2, especially key moments like Episode 8 when Sal is trapped in the prison the Sonos Ace are miles ahead of both the Studio 2 and 3 studio headsets. Subtle sounds like the insects and ambient noises were so front and center with the Sonos Ace. The sounds of the thought suppressor blades were much more separated and clear with the Ace headset too. There was so much more warmth and richness overall. The Sonos Aces are much closer to the Airpod Max's than the Studio 2 and 3 Pros in regards to quality of sound and total balanced soundscape. I would say they are on par with the Max's even. They're really good. Another solid 9/10 SONOS Eco System: We have a Sonos Arc soundbar in our bedroom we use but we also use the older app on my wife's system/account along with the older app and it appears either your devices must be on the same account and/or use the same version of the app. The blessing of a completely seamless eco system is the synergy and flexibility of all the devices working in a shared, cohesive fashion. The curse obviously is to achieve this level of functionality all devices have to be on the same page to work which can be problematic when you have a series of devices under your roof being used/managed by different people/accounts/wifi networks. I will eventually update and merge everything on the same eco system from top to bottom as I do want to try out the room mapping feature to see what type of surround sound landscape can be provided. 7/10 Overall: I will be the first to admit I was a little wary of the price tag and was unsure what the Sonos Ace headphones could bring to the table but after having held them and used them for several days now I think they are worth the price even standing on their own outside of the Sonos eco system. Like Apple, integrating them into your Sono eco system brings even more usefulness and quality of life functionality but even if you're not a Sonos user, the Sonos Ace headphones can stand on their own. They are relatively light weight and comfortable, stylish, well built and they have a very balanced and lush soundscape especially when watching selections with my AppleTV. The negatives they do have are few. They do not have an over abundace of bass so if you're into bass heavy headphones these are not for you. If you're on the older version of the app you will need to upgrade to the new version to not only update and keep your headset current but to integrate your pre-existing Sonos network/items with the Aces and take advantage of the soundbar synergy. Again, overall, I am highly impressed with Sonos's first foray into the high end headphone market and I can officially declare the Sonos Ace headphones as my new preferred set for watching my streaming programs.

    The Best Wireless Headphones I Have Ever Owned!!

    This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.

    I’m going to start this review by saying these headphones have amazing sound quality, excellent build quality and great comfort. They have become my favorite wireless headphones and I have a lot of headphones. Sound QUALITY – First thing I want to say is that these headphones have amazing sound quality. The clarity of the music and the well rounded highs, mids, and bass is unlike anything I have experienced from other top contenders. I listen to a wide range of music genres and they sound great with everything I listen to. Honestly I don’t think my other headphones will be used anymore. Build Quality – These headphones are built solid, but at the same time they are light weight. Other headphones are either solid metal and heavy or plastic and cheap feeling. The SONOS ACE have a mix of plastics and metal but they have managed to give them solid build quality while keeping the weight down which leads to extreme comfort. Comfort – Speaking of comfort, these headphones are super comfy. They have really soft padding on the headband and on the earcups. Wearing these for long hours I have only noticed a slight heat up of my ears, but its nothing that I would consider a downside or affecting the overall comfort. The earcups are also removable with magnets securing them to the headphones, so if needed they are very easy to clean and replace. Active Noise Cancellation – So I have two other headphones that I would say have the best noise-canceling on the market, until now. I ride the train on a daily basis and it can be a very loud environment. I have tested the SONOS ACE against two of the top market leaders and they absolutely do a better job than both of those. I honestly didn’t think they would but they are superb. When they say world class noise cancelling, they are telling the truth. As of today they noise cancelling is stellar. TV Audio Swap – This is the area where things get a little complicated. SONOS has marketed these headphones as a home theatre headset when connected to one of their soundbars. I have both the ARC and the BEAM Gen2 and using the TV Audio Swap feature is very easy to do, by long pressing the multi-function button the audio playing from your TV instantly transfers to the headphones. This feature works as it should and I believe is really nice. However, due to the wide range of streaming APPS I have found there is an issue with the volume output of content depending on what you are watching. I have notified SONOS about this and they promised to fix this with a software update before the headphones launched. There was an update on June 4th, but the change in output volume sadly was only an incremental change. I believe that with more feedback from consumers SONOS will figure this out, but as of today I don’t think its completely there yet. Don’t get me wrong, the audio is still usable and depending on the format of the content you are watching you could get good volume output, but its not consistent and because of that more headroom of the volume output is needed to make up for these inconsistencies. I would say right now if you are buying these for the TV Audio Swap feature, you might find it under-whelming. I only hope SONOS will listen to its fans and figure this out. Hardware – The button layout on the SONOS ACE is very well laced out. There is a Content Key Button which serves as a multi-function button. You can adjust the volume of the headphones, play/pause content, answer or end a call and long press for the TV Audio Swap from a supported soundbar. In my testing I can say the button is very easy and accurate to use and have found no issues with the function or placement of this button. There are two other buttons on the ACE. There is a power/pair button on the left ear up and under the content button on the right ear up is a noise cancel/aware mode button. Aware Mode – This is a feature that everyone does a little different. SONOS has defiantly done a good job here. When using the Aware Mode, You can hear everything around you and most important it sounds very natural. It doesn’t sound like your listening to the surrounding environment through microphones, which is exactly how this feature works. I have had conversations with coworkers and family members with no issue. They have nailed this feature as well. If you have made it this far into the review, congratulations!! You have made it to the end and I will leave you with this, If you are a SONOS fan and are looking for an amazing sounding pair of wireless headphones, then I highly recommend you give these a try. I honestly believe right now it will be hard to find better. If you want them solely or largely for the TV Audio Swap feature, be prepared to feel underwhelmed as of today, but I hope they sort this out soon.

    The Sonos Ace is an great product upon initial first impressions. It is light, very comfortable, and the sound quality is good. I really appreciate that the headrest does not clamp on your head super strong, the headset doesn't weigh a ton so I feel that you could wear it for several hours without fatigue. The ANC is also very good with equally good transparency mode, and switching the audio from the Arc to the headphones is seamless. The controls are very easy to use and have a fair amount of travel, almost sponge-like, so you have to press in a fair bit for it to register. That being said, let's get to where I think they could improve - for one, the case. The case feels not as robust or durable for a premium product - it gives me a feeling of while it looks nice that it may not be durable or last for a long period of time. Inside the case, there is a magnetic pouch that is the type to squeeze to open to put your USB-C / audio cables in. But, it is also made from the same kind of material that makes me doubt its durability. The other issue, I think may be more of a personal one, however, is the fit. I have a rather large head, and have to extend the earcups to their limit to fit comfortably. Lastly is the sound quality. The sound is good and has a wide soundstage. Is definitely good for easy listening and is pleasing. My slight gripe, however, is that the Sonos app only has two sliders for EQ adjustment - bass and treble. If they were to have an advanced mode for more granular EQ adjustment, I think that would go a long way for the sound to be more "impactful". If there are songs that I want to rock out to, this doesn't have quite the presence versus some other competitors. Therefore, as I said in the title, the Sonos Ace is a great all-around product and a very good first effort. I can't wait to see what Sonos comes up with next.

    Finally Sonos entered the headphones race! I was waiting for them to do so for a while now and i am happy they did it. *The Price it is a little high i would say for this great but not perfect set of headphones. They missed a great opportunity to make a difference on this audio/headphones race and wished they came with something new the competition doesn't offer. *Design is great and i do love the fact that they used physical buttons for commends! I also apreciate the dual color of the earpieces i think it is a smart move, it makes it easier/more intuitive to put them on right/faster. Also light weight and very comfortable! *App works fine and i do recommend adjusting a little the EQ, try the audio track head movement. I wish here the EQ would be a little more complex with more settings. *Noise canceling it is amazing. One of the best if not the best i ever tried so far, even the other mode Aware it really works and makes it possible having a conversation without having to remove your headphones to do so! It's a very good pair of headphones with a nice good quality sound and feel to it! There is some improvements that can be done to the app and maybe add wifi connectivity even though that might affect de battery life which currently is good.

    Sonos missed the mark to differntiate

    This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.

    The Sonos Ace headphones present a mixed bag. For those already invested in the Sonos ecosystem, such as those who own a Sonos Arc, the Ace could be a worthwhile addition. However, if you already own high-end headphones like the Apple AirPods Max (APM), Sony WH-1000XM5, Bose QC Ultra, or Focal Bathys, the Ace might not offer enough to justify the investment. The headphone market is competitive, and alternatives like the Focal Bathys and Apple APM stand out at this price point. Sonos missed an opportunity to differentiate the Ace in a crowded marketplace, especially considering their strong brand and technological prowess. Notably, the Ace lacks features like Hi-Fi, Lossless sound over Wi-Fi, and the ability to play music from the Sonos app, which is significant oversights. In terms of sound quality, the Ace delivers loud and satisfying bass but lacks the depth and refinement of the Bathys. The mid-range and vocal clarity are decent but do not match the detailed and immersive experience provided by the Bathys. Instrumental separation is also not as tight, making the soundstage feel less defined. I find the sound stage and audio quality slightly below the Apple APM, but that may just be my personal preference. The Ace excels in comfort, being the most comfortable headphones I've worn since the Bose QC45s. The APM, while providing good sound quality, is heavy and can become fatiguing quickly. The Bathys are comfortable but have smaller ear cups. For Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), the Ace and APM perform equally well, while the Bathys fall short, especially for frequent travelers. In terms of Dolby Atmos, the APM outperforms the Ace, which does not effectively utilize this feature, and the Bathys do not support it at all. Overall, while the Sonos Ace offers solid performance, especially in comfort and sound quality, it does not surpass the excellence of the Focal Bathys and is almost on part with the APM. I personally don't see a compelling reason to choose over other high-end headphones.

    Better Than AirPods Max

    I have been comparing them to my AirPods Max and Sennheiser Momentum 4. They have more physical bass than AirPods Max but slightly less than the Momentum 4. They have basic EQ settings which is nice considering AirPods have none and I like adding more bass. They are more comfortable than the other two and the physical buttons are easier to use. I dont use my AirPods Max often because it is so heavy and the clamp force was too strong. So far the Sonos Ace is better than expected. I cannot test the TV Swap feature since do not have Arc soundbar. Will try it once update for Beam soundbar is released. I have almost one of every product Sonos makes so probably could consider me a Sonos fan. The new Sonos app has been nice and have not had any issues. If you want it to sound even better you can purchase Creative BT-W5 bluetooth adapter that supports AptX Adaptive bluetooth codec. The blueooth adpater works well with my iPhone or Android when plug it into the USB C port using a short USB extension cable. I also have a headphone amp and multiple pairs of Grado headphones so do wired listening sometimes but mostly prefer wireless headphones for convenience or on the go. The Sonos Ace will probably become my main pair and have Momentum 4 as backup especially since the Momentum can play music when battery is dead if you use wire unlike the Ace which needs to be turned on.

    Sonos Ace, Everyday Review

    Posted . Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
    This reviewer received promo considerations or sweepstakes entry for writing a review.

    Overall, I’m giving the Sonos Ace a solid, positive review. I’m a general consumer and slight audiophile. I own a pair of AirPods Max already and was really curious about the Sonos Ace, given the APM are technically outdated (rumored to be refreshed soon). I am genuinely going to keep the Sonos Ace. I went on a long haul, international flight with them and have done some general listening etc. with the Ace as well. I don’t own anything else of Sonos nor have ever tried anything else. I am in the Apple Ecosystem. Spatial Audio with the head tracking is actually pretty cool in comparison to APM, I think they did a fair job there. Noise cancellation, for me, is on par with APM. It was really good. The sound quality is great, it doesn’t have as open of a sound stage as APM and a bit less bass, this set of headphones is very well rounded/balanced, and the comfortability is very well done— has that snug fit like APM but doesn’t give the same fatigue like the APM, I assume because it weighs less and the build is a bit different. Ears didn’t feel hot either, just a bit warm. I was able to comfortably wear the Ace’s for 10 hours straight (note a little bit of fatigue but that’s natural for that long listening time), the battery lasted the flight there and back, plus the bit of time initially on the road. I had charged it to 100% and didn’t charge it at all again until after my trip. Two things to note, the Sonos gave me a little bit of an issue with the on ear/off ear detection (resuming audio after putting them back on). The other thing is that you cannot use them as wired headphones unless they are turned on. All in all, I think Sonos did a good job with their first pair of headphones. Would recommend only if 1) you have the money to comfortably spend and 2) you don’t have APM or have serious issue with APM after owning a pair. At the moment, I think the Ace is a bit above the APM given they have not been refreshed yet.

    I had an opportunity to test these on a 11 hour flight, which is what this review is based on. Overall, these are a high quality build with premium materials. I love the magnetic detachable ear pads as a feature for easy replacement. The headphones are attractive, and the minimal branding is a big plus. Also, the price is a big obstacle given how many less expensive excellent competitors there are. Noise cancelling: this is where the Sonos is getting a 1 star ding. Compared to the Bose QC Ultra, I feel like the Bose have them beat. On the long flight, I was feeling a bit fatigued by the amount of plane and passenger noise that was making it's way through. I wear glasses, so it's always a factor that a bit of noise seeps in, but in this case, even when I took my glasses off, the Bose seem to do a better job of silencing plane noise. Sound quality: great sounding headphones, as you would expect from a Sonos product. I have no complaints. Comfort: I liked the shape and fit initially, but I felt a sense of relief when I removed them as the big cups started to feel a bit heavy and large compared to the Bose. I have a pretty average sized head (I think) and these definitely wouldn't bother me if I was wearing them for less time - maybe commuting on a train. For the longer flight, I wished they were lighter. Minor note: the power button is on the bottom of the left side. I found that I was inadvertently turning off the headphones with my thumb when I went to make fit adjustments. A small but notable design flaw. Final thoughts: in the end, I decided to return these in favor of sticking with my Bose QC Ultra. For the premium price, the noise cancelling on the Bose is better and less expensive. When Sonos comes with an Ace V2, it is going to be a big winner. They are going to get better at this, and these are definitely a step in the right direction, just not for me right now.

    Great headphones if you have the means to splurge

    I own the Airpods Max and B&W Px8s. The Sonos Ace is really giving the Max a run for its money, and the value compared to the Px8s is just short of miraculous what Sonos were able to get away with. If you're looking for transparency (ie, awareness) then nothing comes close to the Airpods Max. Apple simply just does this better than any headset I've owned or tested. I still wouldn't recommend the max though (see below). ANC on the Sonos Ace is comparable to the Max. I really couldn't tell the difference to be honest. I don't own a set of Bose so I'm not even going to go there (I'm sure you'll find plenty of reviews stating that's the gold standard for ANC etc.) The sound on these are really good. I'm no audiophile, but these are just as good as the Max in my opinion. Weight and comfort, the Sonos Ace are lighter than the Max and on par with the Px8s. They're very comfortable and I've worn these for very long sessions without any fatigue. What about the Px8s you ask? Save your money and pick between Sony, Bose, or Sonos if ANC, transparency, sound and mic quality is important to you. The Px8s are overhyped and in hindsight I've begun to question their reviews. And frankly having owned the Px8s for over a year, the headband is starting to fall apart. The sound, ANC, mic, and quality is nothing to write about. Their app software is a mess which probably explains why I was never able to get the headphones updated (after awhile I just stopped trying). Get these if you're in the market for a new pair of headphones, and have the means to splurge. The Sonos Ace is my new daily driver. Avoid the Max at all costs. Apple refuses to acknowledge condensation buildup in the earcups is a problem which causes a loud static sound in your ears. You'd think their design team would have figured out that metal surfaces tend to cool quickly and attract condensation. Their design team forgot that people sweat, or that some use headphones for long sessions. Their solution? Take off the earcups and wipe down the condensation buildup (which means you're always constantly checking every 1-2 hours to see if it's time to wipe them down again). If headphones are your goto for long audio sessions, then the Max ain't it.

    I have owned both Apple Air Pod Max and Sony XM4. Both are very good but the Sony Ace overall is my favorite. The fit is by far the most comfortable as the Apple Max is way too heavy and bulky and the Sonys hurt after 2-3 hours. Neither is any good for travel. The sound of Ace and Max are both excellent and Sony is pretty good but are also 4 yrs old. The cases for the Ace and the Sony are both excellent. Don't even talk about Max case. But for me being a Sonos soundbar Arc customer, thats where the Ace is way ahead. Switching to watching a movie in Dolby Atoms via the Arc to the Ace is a push one button solution and so simple and the sound of the Ace in Dolby Atmos is incredible. Finally, the noise cancelling is the best over Max and Sony. The biggest compliment I can give the Ace is traveling on a plane, almost pure silent experience and falling asleep and sleeping soundly for 4-5 hours. Very good product and worth the price in my opinion.

    I’ve been using the Sonos Ace headphones for a week now, and they have completely changed how I experience music. The sound quality is incredible, with every note, from the highest highs to the deepest bass, coming through clearly. The sound is balanced, though not overly punchy, which I appreciate for a more natural listening experience. The lossless streaming and spatial audio make it feel like I’m right in the middle of the music. The noise cancellation is fantastic, blocking out all the background noise so I can focus entirely on what I’m listening to. But if I need to hear what’s happening around me, the Aware mode is super handy. They’re also really comfortable, with soft memory foam cushions and an adjustable band that fits perfectly. The battery life is fantastic, lasting up to 30 hours, and a quick 3-minute charge gives me another 3 hours of use. Calls are crystal clear too, thanks to the beamforming microphones. The controls are easy to use, and I love that the audio pauses automatically when I take the headphones off. Switching between devices is a breeze, and the Sonos app lets me tweak the settings to my liking. My favorite feature is the TV swap mode with the Sonos Arc – it’s perfect for late-night TV watching without disturbing anyone. Whether I’m listening to music, taking calls, or watching movies, these headphones provide an amazing experience. Highly recommend!

If you're looking for headphones that combine top-notch sound quality, comfort, and stylish design, look no further. Highly recommended!

    Shines in comparison to AirPods Max

    It's very obvious the people at Sonos were paying attention to the market, because they fixed everything that the AirPod Max headphones got wrong. I have used the AirPods Max since they were first introduced almost 3 years ago and enjoyed them a lot. The AirPods Max sound great, the controls work perfect, BUT they just aren't very comfortable and they're a little on the heavy side. The Sonos are very light, have very little clamping tightness on your head. You can hardly even tell you're wearing them even after almost 2 hours. The controls are easy to figure out without thinking about them. I like how they have a real power button and it's on the opposite side from the rest of the controls on the headphones so you don't get it confused with the volume and noise cancellation buttons. I will definitely be keeping these and using them every day!
