    How would you compare the speakers on these two? How big is the increase versus ProMotion?

    The speakers are much better. And there are 2 more than there were on the 9.7. I am very happy I upgraded. Pro motion is great but I sold my 9.7 so I cannot compare side by side

    Just to clarify: the iPad Pro 9.7" already has quad speakers. I think the OP wants to compare both Pro models with quad speakers.

    I have both a 9.7 Pro and a 10.5 Pro - the speakers do seem better on the 10.5.

    Not sure about the 9.7 vs 10.5 tho I've had both, seem similar.
    To me the 4 speaker system is the best Pro feature... all iPads should have it in 2017.

    I don't agree that Apple should put the quad speakers on all the iPads. The reason being is they want to have more exclusivity to the iPad Pro and by adding the quad speakers to all the iPads, creates less of a separation from the Pro models. Plus if Apple included the quad speakers on the 2017 9.7 iPad, it would increase the overall cost.

    What’s the conclusion

    As I’m 90% towards 9.7 pro q1 2018

    Have to say think either pro will be an improvement since iPad Air with its solo speaker.

    Are the speakers of iPad Pro 10.5 comparable to a 50$ bluetooth speaker?

    I'd say even better
    I don't like one-directional sound coming from cheap bluetooth speakers. iPP has 4 speakers, stereo, with very good decibel

    At normal iPad distance use, the speakers are pretty good for listening to music or movies. I like them quite a bit. I'd rather, but this is obvious, use some good Bluetooth speakers for music, but the iPad ones get the job done. (I have the 9.7 Pro)

    True story--the last time we had our bluetooth speaker on in the kitchen (a few days ago), I was working at the kitchen table, and my wife turned the speaker off and asked me to put the music on my iPad Pro instead. She has been really impressed/amazed by how loud it can get and how full the sound is. And the bass will go to the bottom two speakers when you rotate the iPad.

    Either iPad Pro would easily have superior sound over the iPads with a single sided speaker. The 9.7 Pro still sounds great.

    Was that 10.5 or 9.7?

    10.5". We were both pretty impressed with the 9.7" inch speakers too, but the 10.5" seem to be even a little more powerful. (I acknowledge that could just be in my head, as I don't have the 9.7" to compare to anymore.)

    I think between the 9.7 Pro and the 10.5 they’re very similar. I tested the 10.5 at a store compared to my 9.7 and I couldn’t tell the difference. The 9.7 is a fantastic device and I didn’t see any need to upgrade after comparing it with the 10.5.

    I wish I couldn't tell the difference.
    After trying it, I'm itching to upgrade from my 9.7" Pro.

    Resist the urge :p from what I hear quality control is somewhat lacking on the new 10.5. Also, think about saving for the OLED 2018 model ;)

    Yeah, the yellow screen thread with its large amount of responses is extremely disconcerting to say the least.

    For me, an iPad and iPhone are the 2 single most-used devices in my life, more than my MacBook, consoles, handhelds... As such, in terms of utility rate, it kinda justifies itself for me to upgrade every cycle. Or at least I want to. :p

    It can be disconcerting if you read through the thread. But that's just one thread based off the millions of iPad users who purchased iPads and may never have issues with the yellow display. Highly critical Macrumors forum users are rarely indicative of anything in the outside world. Sometimes an issue with a device seems worse than it is because of how one focuses solely on one topic about a defect in one thread.

    Yep. There's ALWAYS a "yellow screen thread" for every model of iPad/iPhone. This is not the place to go if you want to feel good about something you bought.

    How many watt are the iPad Pro 10.5 speakers?
