The feature that has been missing from its predecessor, Bluetooth. From a limited connection capability of the Bose SoundTouch 30 and Bose SoundTouch 20, which is a support for Wi-Fi, the new Bose SoundTouch 10 can now do the pair and play with any dominant devices offered these days, smartphones. In addition to a new connection feature, this Bose wireless speaker has a more compact and smaller size, as well as improved sound quality.
Bose SoundTouch 10 Review – Performance
Bose SoundTouch 10 Review is here. The Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Music System has a smaller size compared from the SoundTouch 30 and SoundTouch 20 yet the sound quality of this wireless speaker is also not the a belittling as well.
Considering the size of the Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Music System, the sound production was an absolute excellence. We are not exaggerating though. We did not expect the sound this Bose wireless speaker is producing. It is actually pretty impressive and great for a size this compact and smaller than previous models.
In addition, the sound was very detailed and clear that makes it feel more natural. We also tested it in wider room, like our living room, and the sound was still audible and clean even at higher volume levels. No distortions were observed while the tracks from our local music library, Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, iTunes, iHeart Radio, and other Internet Radio stations were being played. Also, the Bose SoundTouch 10 delivers an impactful bass output.
To make you more acquainted why the Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Music System has pretty great sound performance is because it has been inserted with a newly engineered “unidome” transducer. This allows the wireless speaker to create big, detailed, clear, clean, and loud sound that can really fill a large room.
To power up this Bose wireless speaker, you need to plug it in via a power cord (and not a micro-USB which is only used for future firmware upgrades).
Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Music System – Design
The design of the Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Music System reminds us of the Sonos Play:1. Although, you should take note that differences are still very observable with this one.
Available in both Black and White color options, the Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Music System is an attention seeker or an eye-candy. The design of this wireless speaker is very sleek and modern. It doesn’t even feel cheap at all thus making it look and feel more premium than other portable wireless music system out there.
Measuring at only 8.3 x 5.6 x 3.4 inches, this Bose wireless speaker looks minimalistic yet elegant. We mentioned that it reminds us of the Sonos Play:1 and that is because of its look and feel, although the wireless speaker from Sonos forms a cylindrical shape while the Bose SoundTouch 10 forms a vertically positioned rectangular shape.
At the front of the Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Music System is where the usual speaker grille and Bose logo are found. There is an addition to the front part, though. Aside from those that are stated, the front part also has an indicator for the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AUX connectivity. On the top of this Bose wireless speaker is where the buttons for the power on/off, Bluetooth pairing/Aux connection, volume up and down, and the buttons for the six presets (which are used for easier access and control over music options) are placed. While at its back is where the inputs for the power cable, Aux, and micro-USB (for firmware upgrades only) are found.
Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Music System – Connectivity
You can connect the Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Music System through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or Auxillary input.
What’s great with the connectivity options of the Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Music System is that the feature is really flexible. If you prefer using your home Wi-Fi network, then you can easily connect it. Just press a few buttons, then that’s it. Take note that its Wi-Fi has now been upgraded to dual-band 802.11n which allows for lesser drops and better quality in connection. You can now also connect the Bose SoundTouch 10 with your smartphones via Bluetooth. This is one feature that has been missing from its predecessors and this is one that makes us really happy. Lastly, you can also connect this Bose wireless speaker via a 3.5mm cable (which you need to provide for your own) or Aux input. This is used if you prefer using a wired connection.
