Sonos has launched a new subscription service in the Netherlands that aims to lower the initial barrier to using its expensive connected speakers. The new Sonos Flex subscriptions start at €15 per month and can be canceled at any time. The service could expand globally if successful in the Netherlands.
The speakers are available in either black or white, and will be automatically replaced with the latest models as they’re released. Subscribers can alter their subscriptions or cancel at any time. Sonos Flex subscriptions are available at three different price points:
- €15 per month: two Sonos One smart speakers than can be paired together or used separately in different rooms. (€458 if purchased at Sonos.)
- €25 per month: Sonos Beam soundbar and two Sonos One speakers for TV audio. (€907 if purchased at Sonos.)
- €50 per month: Playbar, Subwoofer, and 2 Sonos One speakers for a more robust home theater setup. (€2,026 if purchased at Sonos.)
Orders take about four days to process and delivery is free, with an option for free professional installation of the €50 system offered to Amsterdam residents (Sonos’ European HQ is located in Hilversum, about 20 minutes away).
