Sonos One Speaker Can Also Leave White Marks on Wood Furniture

Following a discovery that the HomePod smart speaker can damage some wood furniture, it appears as though the Sonos One may also leave white marks.

WireCutter recently reported that the Apple HomePod could leave significant white rings on some wooden furniture that may not fully disappear. In their review, the site noted that in the same location the "Sonos hasn’t caused damage in months of use."

However, according to a new report from Tom's Guide, the Sonos One can also leave marks.

When I got home, I saw a large white ring, a telltale indication that the HomePod's silicone base had messed up the finish. But, as I was inspecting the damage, I noticed a series of smaller white marks near where the HomePod was sitting. A closer inspection revealed that the Sonos One speaker, which also has small silicone feet, had made these marks on my cabinet. Looking around the top of the cabinet, I noticed a bunch of little white marks, all left from the Sonos Ones as I moved them around. So, they will damage your wood furniture, too.

In a support document, Apple says these marks are 'not unusual'; however, we've never encountered them before. A warning should definitely be provided to buyers so they can be more cautious with placement of the speaker.

You take a chance when you purchase their or anyone's first edition of anything. It will take a while (next generation) to get some of the bugs out. I'm sure it will be a much better device once it can do more and be compatible with more third-party apps. I don't buy that it's primarily a music device, otherwise they would have just made a great speaker. They want to compete in the smart speaker market. I think they still rushed this product to market.

The HomePod is primarily for listening to music and audio. It isn’t meant to be an AI speaker first.

I love how Apple is villainized for everything but when other companies found at fault, then it’s the acceptable norm.
