Bose continues to take on Sonos with new SoundTouch speakers

Bose took to New York City to celebrate its 50th birthday in style. Not only did the audio company introduce a new partnership with streaming service Deezer, but it also introduced its Series II set of WiFi speakers. The revamped SoundTouch 20 and new flagship SoundTouch 30 (pictured above) are a follow up to last year’s home systems, as Bose looks to better compete with the likes of Sonos. The SoundTouch 20 and SoundTouch 30 are both capable of syncing across your WiFi network and can be controlled via Bose’s controller app, available for iOS and Android — the flagship model, however, is obviously the most powerful of the two from the inside out. The SoundTouch 30, as does its sibling, features the company’s Waveguide technology, which Bose says allows for the system to create a great amount of bass output from a very small enclosure, alongside a 9 lb subwoofer. And trust us, the thing is beautifully loud.

Content-wise, Deezer wasn’t the only new service that SoundTouch users can expect to have access to now, as Bose managed to get iHeartRadio and Spotify Connect, making the new (and older) systems that much better for potential buyers. Bose’s SoundTouch 20 and SoundTouch 30 are available now for $399 and $699, respectively. Sound off in the comments below and let us know if you’re into them.
