Folks, Black Friday deals are dropping early this year aren't they? And it's incredibly easy to get carried away in the buying frenzy – because when it comes to spotting a tasty deal on your heart's desire, you snooze you lose… Right?
Well, this advice may come as a surprize, but sometimes patience is a virtue.
What I'm about to tell you is something few other retailers (or competing online news outlets, for that matter) are keen to let on. However, at TechRadar we like to keep it real and so our advice is this: if you're looking to nab yourself one of the best Black Friday Sonos deals on a Sonos One, Sonos One SL, Sonos Move, Sonos Arc, Sonos Beam, Sonos Sub, Sonos Roam or Sonos Roam SL, do not click 'buy now' today… that's right, I'm telling you to hold off. Desist. At ease. Stand down, soldier.
Why? Because Sonos likes to take its time – but don't worry, the company has kindly informed us that deals are coming. Want a date to circle in your diaries? That would be Friday November 18.
Essentially, if you buy direct from Sonos or via "select online retailers" on or after November 18, you'll unlock rarely-seen discounts on no fewer than seven Sonos products – and said offers will last for ten whole days, until November 28 (or until stock runs out).
Additionally, Sonos tells us it'll be running a one-day-only deal on the portable Sonos Move on November 28 for 24 hours.

However, if you really (really) cannot wait 'til November 18 (or November 28, for the Sonos Move), the best deals live this very second are listed at the very bottom of this missive…
Sonos Arc soundbar: was
£899 now £699 at Sonos
This is a top deal chaps. Why? Because it's a stonking £100 cheaper than we've ever seen it to date and it's a sensational five-star soundbar with Dolby Atmos, TrueHD and Dolby Digital Plus. Setup is incredibly simple too. This is Sonos, remember, the firm that wrote the book on multi-room audio for your home. Our advice? If you've been considering the Arc for a little while now, this is the moment…
Sonos Sub (Gen 3): was
£749 now £599 at Sonos
Something about this design with the hole in the middle and those push-push drivers either side though, isn't there? Also of serious note is the £150 saving, which is almost £100 cheaper than we've ever seen it across the big online retailers. Yes, there's now a newer Sub Mini in Sonos land, but come on, where subwoofers are concerned we know which we'd rather invite into our lounge…
Sonos Beam (Gen 2) soundbar: was
£449 now £349 at Sonos
The second-generation Sonos Beam soundbar launched in October 2021 and while we have seen a few discounts to date, this is £50 cheaper than we've ever seen it. For your money you're getting a compact, stylish soundbar with excellent integration with the wider Sonos ecosystem, and immersive virtual Atmos support.
Sonos One smart speaker: was
£199 now £159 at Sonos
This is a good deal on a Sonos staple. Looking to get into Sonos' wonderful world of multi-room audio? This is your gateway product, although it's a veritable sonic delight in its own right and with no other speakers to work with too. We've briefly seen it dip to a few pounds cheaper in the past (£147 at Amazon, in January 2020 to be precise) but we can't promise that'll happen this Black Friday… or ever, given this talented speaker's indomitable popularity…
Sonos One SL smart speaker: was
£179 now £139 at Sonos
The same excellent little smart speaker, but why pay for voice assistant smarts if you don't want them – or you've already got a Sonos One and this one can be the 'slave' to the master, as it were? We've seen it £2 cheaper than this but no more – and considering how ubiquitous this excellent-sounding has become since then, this is a top price.
Sonos Roam portable speaker: was
£179 now £139 at Sonos
When Sonos makes a truly portable speaker that not only plays nice with your multi-room audio setup but also brings Bluetooth the party, you know you're onto a winner. And although it might have seemed a little steep at its regular RRP, this money is far more palatable – and it's never been as cheap as this to date.
Sonos Roam SL portable speaker: was
£159 now £119 at Sonos
As the One SL is to the One, Roam SL is to the Roam: the same solution (ie a portable Bluetooth and wi-fi enabled speaker) but no mics and thus no built-in voice assistant support, although it'll tag along if you've got voice control elsewhere in your Sonos setup. And this £40 saving is a huge discount; we've never seen it quite so affordable before.
Sonos Move portable speaker: was
£399 now £319 at Sonos
OK, the deal is that you can't hang around on this one: November 28 is the day, for 24 sweet hours only. After that (or while stocks last) it'll be gone. You want a Sonos Move? Well you've got to, um… move! We've seen it briefly drop to £329 before, but this is £10 cheaper than even that, its lowest ever price, which is almost certainly why Sonos isn't running it for long…
More early Black Friday deals
Maybe you're not looking to buy into Sonos this Black Friday. Maybe you chiefly want Black Friday earbuds deals, the best Black Friday headphones deals or Black Friday Apple deals – or to really hone in on the big cheese, the Amazon Black Friday deals event. Good on you, we say!
Trust us when we tell you that we can help you find the best deal. The ones we've picked out below are excellent, but they are a quick taster – so don't just click on the first big red discount that takes your eye, allow us to guide you.
Our considered, detailed and regularly updated Black Friday deals page is the place to start…
JBL Go3 Bluetooth speaker:
£34.99 £29.99 at Argos
Save £5 – What if your sole Black Friday wish is for a cheap, no-nonsense, waterproof Bluetooth speaker that'll fit in your pocket and provide JBL-quality sound for little money? Well, you've just found it. It's rugged, it sounds far bigger than it looks and now, it's on offer! As long as the five-hour battery doesn't bother you, this is a great shout for affordable portable music with friends.
Sony WH-1000XM5 over-ears:
£380 £299 at Amazon
Save £81 – quite simply the newest and best in Sony's class-leading wireless over-ear lineup. The older XM4 were outstanding, the XM3 before it were excellent, and it'll come as little surprise to know that Sony's latest XM5 proposition are also incredibly hard to beat – especially with a whopping 21% off! Have we seen them this cheap before? No, we have not – because these cans only launched in May 2022. Our advice? This is a top deal on a winning pair of new noise-cancelling headphones.
Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro
£139 £79 at Amazon
Save £40 – The Galaxy Buds 2 Pro only arrived in stores on August 26, and this is the first time we've seen them discounted. They're small, they're comfortable, the two-way speaker design provides impressive and detailed 24-bit audio and the ANC is seriously good for this level. The one downside is the battery life, at only 5 hours from the buds and up to 18 in the case. Our advice? If you're a Samsung Galaxy smartphone owner, they're a no-brainer at this new low price…
Sony LinkBuds S earbuds:
£180 £119 at Amazon
Exceptionally small, light, comfortable earpieces with a great control app plus a slew of well-implemented on-ear control options. They're not the most dynamic or zealous listen we've ever heard, but for this money the sound is still up there with the best in show. They're currently 34% off, and although we briefly (very briefly) saw them dip to one penny below £100 in October, at this price they're a solid bet from a trusted name in audio – particularly if you have smaller ears.
JBL Tune 760NC wireless headphones:
£100 £49.99 Argos, Save £50 – Admit it, you came to Black Friday for a 50% off deal, didn't you? And here's a half-price saving to shout about! Argos' pre Black Friday sale is so good, we cannot imagine the price dropping any further, especially when you consider that these attractive wireless on-ears offer active noise cancellation, dual device pairing and up to 35 hours of playtime with ANC on, or a whopping 50 hours without it! Our advice? If you want on-ears, this is an unbeatable deal.
Sony WF-C500 true wireless earbuds:
£90 £49 at Amazon
Save £41 – Under intense review, we called these Sony earbuds "great value for money" – but that was at the full asking price. With 45% off, we think they're an absolute steal and then some. Yes, 20 hours of battery can be bettered – but 10 hours from the buds alone certainly can't at this new low price-point. They're also light and comfortable, providing an exciting, musical sound. Oh, and we've never seen them this cheap – until now.
