On Tuesday, Bose announced a refresh of their SoundTouch systems, that’d be the SoundTouch 10, SoundTouch 20 and SoundTouch 30. These are their somewhat in-expensive speakers that work really well. Some of the key new features that were added were Bluetooth and WiFi. The SoundTouch 10 is actually the new kid on the block, so to speak. As the SoundTouch 20 and SoundTouch 30 have been around for a good little while, and have already established themselves as kings when it comes to theater audio. Quite a few movie theaters use Bose for their audio, so you know it’s pretty darn good.
The new SoundTouch 10 is smaller than the SoundTouch 20 and 30, as you’d expect considering it’s name. The SoundTouch 10 uses Bose’s 2.5-inch “Unidome” transducer. Bose says that the new SoundTouch 10 will play cleaner, deeper, and louder than any other single speaker in its range. Really firing shots at their competitors with this release. Spotify will also get integration with the Bose SoundTouch 10 in early 2016. This will allow users to stream from Spotify to their Bose SoundTouch 10 just using your phone, and over WiFi. Similar to what Google and Spotify are doing with Chromecast Audio. The new SoundTouch 10 is available now for $199.95 from both Amazon and Bose.com.
As for the bigger brothers, the SoundTouch 20 and SoundTouch 30 didn’t receive a huge update, however they did both get WiFi and Bluetooth in this update. To be a bigger competitor to Sonos. And if there is a company that complete with Sonos, it’s definitely Bose. The SoundTouch 20 is available for $349.95, and the Soundtouch 30 for $499.95. Now remember these are pretty large speakers, and you’re going to get a whole lot of sound out of them. These are going to be great for a home theater. If you haven’t had the chance to check out any of Bose’ speakers or headphones, I’d encourage you to do so. We’ve reviewed a number of their headphones and absolutely loved them all.
