I know this has been asked a thousand times already, but i still cant find an answer. Most of people here and on reddit seems to agree that 2 play 1/ONE in stereo are better than a play 5. Is it just the people listening at lower volumes and more mellow tunes that thinks this? The play 5 surely must be better? My current ONE struggles past 60% volume in my ears. I like to listen to mostly hiphop and EDM, and im thinking of either buying a second ONE or changing my current ONE to a play 5. Im only gonna use this in 1 room for several years.
What is the better choice for loud and bassy experience?

The bass from a single Play 5 is very good and the overall mid and treble of the Play 5 shows its a much better speaker.
OP was asking about a Play 1 vs Play 5 so could only assume he was buying new. The Gen 1 Play 5 is poor compared to the Gen 2, bloated bass and the port chuffs along with the music.
