Flexson Desk Stand : but to the point that they look like they should be provided with the speakers as standard

These are beautiful stands that look classy and harmonize well with the overall design of the play:1. As an extra, they lift the speakers a bit off the ground, so they are somewhat protected from spills in the bathroom or kitchen. They are a bit expensive, but that unfortunately is an issue with pretty much everything in the sonos universe. Worse, there seems to be a fairly common issue of too long screws being delivered with these stands. One of the two-stand-sets ordered here from amazon uk had the too long screws in the box, the other twin-pack had the correct screws. Luckily, a few spacer discs solved the issue.

Stands are as expected but as with other reviewers supplied with the wrong size bolts so will not tighten. I did check the size with a previous set i brought and they are longer. I contacted the seller who said they would pass my comment on to flexon and get back to me but it’s all gone quiet all for the sake of 2 bolts which they must know about already as i have now read other reviews with the same complaint but they are prepared to let it roll so ,if you buy them be prepared to have to bodge them to fit , such a shame.

Having read reviews that the stand improved the sound quality of the speaker by lifting it off the furniture i decided to buy one. Sound quality is definitely better and the speaker stand is very neat.

Speaker looks great raises it of the surface and enhances the sound , would recommend.

  • Nice stands, great shame about the retaining screw problem.
  • Great addition, if you get the correct length bolts
  • Stands are as expected but as with other reviewers supplied

  • Elegant metal design with chrome inlay
  • Black or white finishes to match SONOS PLAY:1

Very nicely designed speaker stands that stop speakers being too boomy on my desk. Look good with rage speakers too. I’ve already ordered a second pair for my second set off play 1’s.

Fantastic little stand for sonos play 1 speaker. The sonos looks beautiful on the stands and it improves the sound. Very pleased with this product, would highly recommended.

Bought as a gift for our sons sonos play 1, it is a great piece of kit, an easy fit to the speaker and creates a better sound as vibrations are lost that would normally be found by laying flat on a shelf or desk. I’m that impressed i’m now looking at getting 2 for my self.

Would have provided a 5 star rating if the fitting bolts weren’t too long. Other than that, they are sturdy and elevate the speaker sound throughout the room.

These are brilliant little stands, can’t rate them highly enough. Really speedy delivery and well packed, thank you very much.

So after reading so many reviews about this product and wanting to test out the added sound values of elevating the sonos speaker, i decided to purchase one. The product is well put together and you can hear a difference in the bass once in position. I’ve had this product for a few months now, and have since bought additional sonos speakers. I will next be purchasing the flexson wall mounted fixtures for two play 1 speakers.

Very pleased with these stands and a must have for anyone with a pair of sonus play 1. Definitely improves the sound, provides isolation and direction. I have mine in my kitchen firing down the room. Great for kitchen dancing on a saturday night.

We have six sonos speakers around the house and four already use these stands. These were purchased for the remaining two but the bolt is too long so doesn’t secure the speaker properly. The ones we’ve bought in the past were perfect so disappointed these are not. Going to see if i can get new bolts at a diy store rather than the hassle of sending them back. Aside from this issue the stands are a great addition and look good. Not sure whether it’s phsycological or not but i think the sound is better. Without the stands the bass is a bit “thumpy” and the stands make a more rounded sound. They look good anyway and aim the sound up into the roomfinal verdict – go ahead and purchase, keeping your fingers crossed you get the correct bolts.

Very solid and well made stand that works really well with the earlier sonos play 1. Very pleased with the item would certainly recommend.

Very very good,i have four speakers so i’ve just ordered another pair. Really improve the sound and look neat.

As per previous reviews these are really nice quality stands (and do look great) except the rear fixing bolt is a bit too long and so don’t hold stand securely onto the back of the play 1 speakers. I contacted the supplier 2-3 weeks ago, who asked me to send a photo of the bolt (which i did) and have heard nothing more since. In the end i added a rubber tap washer between the bolt and speaker fixing bracket which works perfectly (and you can’t see from the front). There is clearly an issue with the bolt length supplied and i hope the supplier sorts this out soon (otherwise i fear they will get lots of returned items).

I too have encountered the problem of the retaining screw being difficult to insert. For all the world it feels as if you are attempting to screw a british standard whitworth thread into a metric thread. It defies belief that flexson are happy to see repeated negative comments about this issue and do nothing about it, when it clearly damages their reputation and would certainly make me think twice about purchasing any more flexson products. In terms of resolving the problem, on the first speaker i attempted to insert the provided screw into, i could only get it about a quarter of the way in before jamming solid. Bizarrely the screw on the other speaker went in with no problem. I then tried swapping the screws over, and the one that had readily screwed into the second speaker went into the first speaker pretty easily. I found that the screw that wouldn’t go into the first speaker could eventually be encouraged fully into the second speaker with repeated backing off and reinsertion. So in the end i had both screws fully home without having to resort to either washers or re-tapping their threads.

They make one sonos speakers glimpse really superior in my bed space in addition they continue to keep the bass traveling via my home furniture and frustrating the relaxation of the property.

These stands will not likely overwhelm you but they do match the sonos1 speakers effectively. I use these in my kitchen and it is really very good to have the speakers sitting on stands fairly than sitting immediate on the shelves.

Like other folks have reported, wonderful stands but how can they nonetheless be sending them out with screws that are too lengthy. Conveniently set but fully unneccesary.

Unquestionably wonderful item appears to be like excellent nice and simple to install effectively made all-round good speaker stand would highly propose five stars ?????.

These stands are very well designed and durable. I’ve employed them to make my flooring-mounted sonos 1s a little bit far more well known and raise them previously mentioned trailing ivy crops. I will not visualize they’ve made any.

Excellent very little stands for the enjoy one boosting them off the surface area by about one. 5 inches and thus reducing any vibration. They look sensible and the bolt securely holds the speaker in spot. £20 for a pair i considered was reasonable. If your likely to spend closely in sonos which is not cheap then you can not quibble about charges for sundry things like this.

    A number of people are posting that the screw does not fit properly into the back of the speaker. I have just bought 7 stands and the screws fit fine. The problem is that you need to properly align the screws too the hole. A little patience and they will fit.

      1. There are no issues with the rear screw as reported. You just need to carefully locate the screw by finger and tighten by hand and they will go all the way into the sonos thread, you can then back off the screw and slide into the stand. Even then you can hand tighten the screw by hand and they will be secure or a quarter turn with a screwdriver just to make sure. If you don’t locate the screw properly at the start you will cross thread the screw and the sonos thread, you will then feel resistance which then creates cross threading then a gap will occur which gives the need to use washers as the srew isn’t located in the sonos thread squarely. Theres a nice finish to the stand and it matches the sonos play 1 design. There appears to be far less vibration which tightens up the sound nicely. Enjoy and be careful with those screws, fingers first, don’t use a screw driver until the very end.

    The stand is just perfect to elevate the play:1 speakers. The screws are the correct size, you just have to ensure they are lined up correctly. Persist, i promise they are the right size.

      1. Looks stylish and improved the sound. And at just over £10, a bit of a bargain too. Some people have complained about the screw supplied is too long, but i didn’t encounter any issues. I bought this item along with the short play 1 cable and it has tidied things up nicely.

    1. They make one sonos speakers look really good in my bed room plus they keep the bass traveling through my furniture and annoying the rest of the house.

  10. Does what it is supposed to do. I would think it is essential for the speaker, both for better sound and ease of movement as well as how it looks.

    Like others have said, great stands but how can they still be sending them out with screws that are too long. Easily fixed but totally unneccesary.

    1. It’s a very simple product but does the job well. It elevates the speaker an inch and a bit, and points the speaker at your face sitting at a desk. Design is solid, and the two play 1’s fit a charm. The stand (if the speaker is fitted tightly) will vibrate with the speaker – especially the front. You might get an added boost in mids and lows depending on the surface you place it on. However this is subjective as to whether it’s a benefit but i stuck the foam to the bottom to remove this. Again, not a downside just personal preference. Most like the added boost in soundfor added flair i took off the grill of the play 1 to see the drivers as i listen to music (yes, i voided the warranty for this) however this added a couple of millimeters of space between the stand and the player. Fixed by taking the unit back off of the stand and cutting a little rectangle of foam to put in that space that comes with the stands.

    Fit the sonos 1 play speakers like a glove. They look the part and also help the sound.

    1. These stands are well made and sturdy. I’ve used them to make my floor-mounted sonos 1s a bit more prominent and lift them above trailing ivy plants. I don’t imagine they’ve made any.
