Sonos speakers are not only some of the best wireless speakers you can buy for your home, but they are also great for Apple users in particular. This is because, with AirPlay 2 support, recent Sonos speakers (as well as some not-so-recent speakers) come out of the box. The Sonos One (Gen 2) and One SL are among the best AirPlay 2 speakers for Apple fans because of this support, and you can get them off for up to 28 percent this Cyber Monday.

The Sonos One (Gen 2) is Sonos’ Alexa-equipped smart speaker’s latest iteration. It’s predominantly the same as the Sonos One first-generation, with Bluetooth Low Energy add-ons and an updated processor. It still has a sleek, minimal look and sound that fills the room. Using Alexa or the Google Assistant, you can control it with voice commands and it also works with AirPlay 2, which connects to other non-Sonos AirPlay speakers. Because of this, you can also use Siri on your iPhone or iPad to control music playback.
Also, the Sonos One can be placed with another Sonos One in a stereo pair, either Gen 1 or Gen 2. Stereo pairing allows for stereo separation, where each speaker assumes different parts of the audio load, resulting in a more detailed overall sound. You can also connect this stereo pair with other Sonos products like the Beam soundbar to create a wireless surround sound system for your entertainment center that doubles as a great stereo setup when you only want to play music.
The Sonos One SL operates in much the same way as the One, with one crucial difference: there are no microphones on the One SL. That’s why Alexa and the Google Assistant have not been built in. The Sonos One SL exists to put those fears to rest for those worried about having an always-listening microphone in their home. And you can still use this speaker with voice assistants via your iPhone or Android device, as Alexa can be integrated with the Sonos ecosystem on the Echo and the Google Assistant, while the AirPlay 2 support allows you to also use Siri play music through the speaker.
Apart from the lack of microphones, you get the same sound quality, support for AirPlay 2, stereo pairing, and other features you expect from the Sonos One.
Sonos makes some of the best speakers on the market for everyone, so make sure you take advantage of this deal while shopping on Cyber Monday.
