The Bose SoundTouch 10 is the smallest wireless multiroom speaker family company . However, that does not mean that we are not looking at a quality speaker. The North American company has developed the SoundTouch 10 with the idea of ​​providing a rich and deep sound in any room in the house. An easy-to-use speaker that we can control through the Bose SoundTouch application. With the Bose SoundTouch 10 we can start in the world of WiFi speakers for a price of 230 euros. We are going to analyze in depth what the Bose SoundTouch 10 wireless speaker offers us.

Compact design

As we mentioned, the SoundTouch 10 offers a compact design , designed to be able to place the speaker anywhere. Therefore, the loudspeaker offers a rectangular design and is placed in an upright position. At the top of the device we find a series of buttons that will allow us to control the speaker. In addition to the volume and power buttons, we have six preset buttons. And is that the SoundTouch allows you to assign a preset for various functions, being able to access it quickly using these buttons. For example, we can save a Spotify playlist in one and an Internet radio station in another.

On the front of the speaker we find four LED lights, which mark the status of the device's connections. Although the ideal is to control the speaker from your mobile or tablet, the SoundTouch 10 also incorporates a small remote control . In this remote we find the preset numbers, but also the basic keys to control playback, turn the device off and on and control the volume.

The Bose SoundTouch 10 has a full dimensions of 21.2 x 14.1 x 8.7 centimeters, with a weight of 1.87 kilograms . This speaker is available in black or white.

Extensive wireless connectivity

Versatility is really important in these types of speakers. The Bose SoundTouch 10 incorporates Bluetooth connectivity , which allows you to listen to music directly from a phone or tablet. In addition, we can not only listen to music, but also any other sound that the mobile plays, such as a YouTube video.

But it also connects to the WiFi network so that we can listen to the music that we have stored locally. SoundTouch speakers offer wireless access to the most popular music services , such as Spotify or Pandora. But we will also have access to Internet radio stations and, as we mentioned, to our music library that we have stored on the computer.

However, we must bear in mind that the SoundTouch 10 has no battery . That is, even if it has Bluetooth connectivity, it is not a speaker designed to be taken down the street. It is a wireless speaker for use at home or the office.

As we mentioned, SoundTouch speakers form the multiroom family of the Bose company. We can connect up to four speakers wirelessly to the same WiFi network . If we need more, the company recommends using ethernet cable connections where possible.

What we can do is pair two SoundTouch 10 speakers , thus being able to separate the left and right audio channels to form a stereo pair and project a wider and more natural sound space.

One app to control them all

We can even access our music library, stored on our computer or on a NAS.

Through the application we can also customize presets to access our favorite music with a single touch. Of course, it will also allow us to control several SoundTouch speakers at the same time. We can transmit different music in each room, the same in all or customize areas to reproduce what we want in each room.

The application is compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10; with Mac computers with OSX 10.8 and later; with iOS 8.2 and later; and with Android devices with Android 4.4 and later.

The smallest of the family

As we mentioned at the beginning, the SoundTouch 10 is the smallest of the SoundTouch family of wireless speakers. A family that has two other members, the SoundTouch 20 and the SoundTouch 30.

The Bose SoundTouch 20 is quite a bit bigger than its little brother. It offers a horizontal format and incorporates a small OLED screen that shows detailed information about the song. Its full dimensions are 18.8 x 31.4 x 10.4 centimeters, with a weight of 3.2 kilograms. And it is intended to be used in a larger room. The SoundTouch 20 is priced at 400 euros .

The biggest of the family is the Bose SoundTouch 30. This speaker is much larger than its smaller brothers, although it maintains the design of the SoundTouch 20. That is, it also offers a rectangular look with an OLED screen on the front. On a sonic level, the SoundTouch 30 incorporates Bose speaker waveguide technology, which produces deep, rich sound to fill larger spaces. The SoundTouch 30 is priced at 600 euros .

Conclusions and price

The vast majority of stereo manufacturers have found that the wireless speaker market has a lot of buzz. Whether Bluetooth or WiFi (or both), users are very interested in these types of devices. And it is not surprising, since they allow a comfort when listening to music that we cannot find in more complex equipment.

The Bose SoundTouch 10 arrives to compete with rivals such as the Denon HEOS 1 or the Sonos Play 1. All of them are compact speakers, which offer wireless connectivity and are part of a family of multi-room devices. The Bose team is somewhat cheaper than its two rivals, but we must bear in mind that it does not incorporate a battery. We won't even have the option to buy it separately, as with the Denon team.

Finally, we will talk about the price. The Bose SoundTouch 10 is available in specialized stores with an official price of 230 euros . Currently the company offers a pack called Bose SoundTouch 10 Twin, with which we can buy two speakers with a price of 400 euros.
