Bose SoundTouch 10 vs. 20 — What’s Different?

Bose SoundTouch 20

OLED Screen – Since Soundtouch 20 is a more advanced model, it comes with a higher quality OLED screen that provides users with more info, than the Soundtouch 10 4 LEDs.

Mono/Stereo Output – The Soundtouch 20 also uses a stereo output, while the previous model transmits audio in a mono format.

However, you can still pair up two Soundtouch 10 speakers in order to achieve that desired stereo sound.

Design – In terms of size, Bose Soundtouch 10 does come in more compact dimensions than Soundtouch 20, weighing in at 3 pounds rather than the 7 of the newer version.

Sound Quality – Since Soundtouch 20 has two speakers instead of one, you can expect higher output and range from the upgraded speaker.

Apart from that, both speakers are quite similar in terms of sound quality.

Stereo Pair Option – While you can pair up two Soundtouch 10 speakers in order to achieve that desired stereo sound, you won’t be able to do so with the Soundtouch 20 models.

Ethernet Port – In case you’re having WiFi issues, you’ll be glad to know that Soundtouch 20 includes an ethernet port option which the previous model lacks.
