Sonos raising (Raises) the prices for the majority of their products amid a supply chain crunch is not so welcomed by a lot of people.

Sonos Raises Prices for Majority of Products amid Supply Chain Crunch

According to THE VERGE, Sonos has announced that many of its speakers will be getting a price increase, ranging from $10 more for its portable Roam to $100 more for its Arc soundbar.  

The company says that the price increases are making good on a promise it made during a call with investors last month and that the increases would be going into effect starting on Sunday, September 12th. You can see a table with all the price changes below as you read it down.

Sonos Raises Prices for Majority of Products amid Supply Chain Crunch

It shouldn’t be surprising if Sonos decides to raise the prices of their products especially with the rate of things going up these days every now and then. During its earnings call, Sonos cited both supply and demand factors in its decision to raise prices. 

In a statement to The Verge, the company said it’s “always assessing market dynamics including demand, supply chain, component costs, and the competitive landscape.” 

This seems to imply that the current chip shortage has something to do with these price increases, at least in part. That would also imply that the increased prices will be around for a while: some industry leaders predict that the shortage, which has affected cars, consoles, and computers, will last at least through next year, if not beyond.

The thing is that Sonos’ announcement doesn’t give consumers much time to decide whether or not they want to purchase one of the company’s speakers before the prices go up.
