Once Sonos had their massive success with their wireless speaker system, every brand rushed to release a similar product. The idea that you can control your wireless speaker via your smart phone is brilliant. Your phone is always on you. By now we consider it an extension of us, another limb. So when you feel that you want to change your Pandora station or pick a new Spotify playlist all you have to do is whip out your phone and do so. Without the inconvenience of taking your feet off the coffee table and getting up to change it. What really got Sonos in the game was the fact that they released a line of wireless speakers that you can pepper around your house. Let’s say you would have one in the kitchen and others in the living room, bathroom and bedroom. Then you could control the volumes of each speaker individually or turn some of them off completely. Sonos truly did solve a problem for us: simple and easy control of music throughout our homes.
