As the outside is quite similar but the same does not go for the inside which is somehow different. Bluetooth LE support is available along with more memory and improved processor. The changes make the speaker more responsive especially when it uses any digital assistant such as Alexa.
The interesting that needs to be taken into account is that there is no change in the way Sonos One sounds apparently with the old and new models that offer somehow the same equality for sound. $199 is the amount at which this Sonos One speaker sells and the older versions are put on sale at the amount is discounted to $179 but the older Sonos One is only available at some selected retailers.
No matter which model you get out of the two Sonos One, you will definitely get AirPlay 2 support and that is making this deal of speaker a pretty good thing to go with before you throw in the specific features of Sonos that are making them quite popular among the audio fans.
This move that is specifically taken to improve internals is more towards the future-proof the speaker for some additional features that are currently in the pipeline to add so whether this is important to or not, you can opt the new model so we leaving the buying decision completely on you. No matter what model you go for, we believe that you will not regret the idea of a purchase.
