    A review I watched the other day claimed that the new 13" MBP has better speakers than the 15". Has anybody compared the two side-by-side to confirm/deny this claim?

    I don't have the links now, but there are different YouTube reviews comparing the 13" non-TouchBar vs 13" TouchBar, and 13" TouchBar vs 15" TouchBar speakers. To sum it up it's 15">13" nTB>13" TB.

    I've had both and the difference is small but noticeable. The 15" sounds a bit fuller and has more bass. Also the stereo effect on the 15" is better because of the wider distance between the speakers. The 13" also tends to be a bit hollow, but thats just to my ears. They both sound awesome and a lot better then i had ever heard. The 15" is just a tiny bit louder and fuller.
