Why is it Better than Bose Cinemate 10?

Now, we all know that money is one of the main factors when buying anything, so we have to find a soundbar that can match that can meet our desires without washing our wallets out.

The Cinemate 10 and Cinemate 15 in a glace are completely identical and not only look but in specifications too, they are quite identical.

But hold your houses!!! Even though they may look quite similar in appearance, the price of the Cinemate 15 is more than Cinemate 10 by almost a hundred bucks.

There it is you have a difference in case of the pricing. Now if pricing is the only issue then it is obvious for you to ask why not Cinemate 10 with the low price option.

But hold on a sec, it may not be visible but the whole difference comes in case of the grille; the Cinemate 10 comes with a rubber grille but the Cinemate 15 comes with a metallic one, due to the design it may not be visible but due to this change in the material the sound output of the bar differs from one another.

The grille also plays a role in the longevity of the product as the metallic grille is more durable than the rubber one.

Apart from that, the remote in both the cases comes with their one variety and feature the Bose Cinemate 10 comes with a Four-button remote while the Bose Cinemate 15 comes with a Universal remote.

In terms of features, there won’t be much of a difference in both the cases but if you are looking for a device that is going on for the long run then you should go for Bose Cinemate 15. Spending an extra hundred bucks will be worth it.
