Now Sonos is expanding to personal audio with plans to launch a set of stereo headphones in a move outside of the home.
Speaker maker Sonos Inc. is planning to expand beyond the home with high-end headphones, according to rumours within the industry.
The wireless, over-the-ear headphones are still in the early development stages and could be launched by next year, say rumours. Renowned famously for their very high audio quality Sonos is working on high end technology to bring their sound quality to personal devices like iPods, iPhones and Android devices.
Sonos is focusing on audio quality and the ability to work with multiple music services and digital assistants, like its latest internet-connected speakers.

Sonos went public in August and now have shareholders to answer to, they are looking at new areas of growth and state that their research shows that over half of music listening actually occurs outside of the Smart Home.
Recently Sonos wrote "We plan to push our boundaries by investing resources to make the experience of Sonos outside the home a reality”.
