SoundTouch™ controller compatible products
The SoundTouch™ controller works with any SoundTouch™ Wi-Fi system. The controller is included with the SoundTouch™ Stereo JC Wi-Fi music system and SoundTouch™ SA-4 amplifier, and may be purchased as a replacement remote.
Your favorite music. At your fingertips.
The SoundTouch™ controller has a unique design that beautifully combines form and function. The intuitive controls give you immediate access to your music, so you don’t need to use your smartphone, tablet or computer.
You can adjust the volume, skip or pause songs, and turn your SoundTouch™ system on or off, from across the room. For added convenience, set up a wall-mounted cradle with the included bracket to put the controller anywhere you want. There’s a magnet in the bracket to keep the controller safely in place.
See what's playing
The OLED display shows you what playlist or station you're listening to on your preset. You can also preview the music on your other SoundTouch™ presets.
Feel free to roam about
You don’t have to be near your SoundTouch™ system to control your music. The SoundTouch™ controller has a range of up to 70 feet and runs on 4 AA batteries. To preserve battery time, the controller automatically goes into standby mode a few seconds after use. But it instantly wakes up anytime you place your hand near it. Choose your music, and bring the controller with you to enjoy the performance anywhere in your room. Or use the optional wall-mounted cradle and control your music from there.
Welcome to the world of streaming music
Not just another speaker
SoundTouch™ is an entirely new way to stream music wirelessly around your home, easier than ever before. SoundTouch™ systems connect directly to your favorite Internet stations and streaming music sources like Deezer, Pandora®, Spotify® and iHeartRadio, putting them right at your fingertips. Wi-Fi streaming is fast becoming the new listening standard. We’ve made it easier and more rewarding for you to enjoy.
All your music. At your fingertips.
After you’ve downloaded and installed the SoundTouch™ app, the SoundTouch™ controller gives you immediate access to your music, so you don’t need to use your smartphone, tablet or computer. The OLED display shows you what playlist or station you’re listening to on your preset. You can also preview the playlist on your other SoundTouch™ presets. For added convenience, you can set up a wall-mounted cradle to store the controller.
Powerful SoundTouch™ app
The SoundTouch™ app makes it easy to explore new music and organize what you have. Use it to set up the system on your smartphone, tablet or computer. Then the fun begins. You can drag and drop any music source—a favorite album on Spotify, an iTunes® playlist, an Internet radio station—to your six presets. Now they're just a touch away. But when you want to venture beyond your presets, use the app to find more music. Browse the online musical universe or files from your own music library. You can also use the app to manage multiple systems in different rooms.
Built for multi-room audio
If you truly love music, you want it to flow through your home. That’s why there’s a SoundTouch™ system for every room—from small and portable speakers to outdoor systems and home theater. Start with any one SoundTouch™ system, and keep adding them whenever you’d like. These systems work together to create a multi-room listening experience, so you can play the same music everywhere or listen to different music in different rooms—even on the patio.

Do I need to connect the SoundTouch™ controller to my Wi-Fi® network?
No. The SoundTouch™ controller does not connect to a Wi-Fi network. Instead, it connects directly to a SoundTouch™ system using Bluetooth® low energy technology.
Can I control multiple systems with one SoundTouch™ controller?
No. The SoundTouch™ controller is designed to control one SoundTouch™ system at a time.
Can I move the SoundTouch™ controller to a different room to connect to a different SoundTouch™ system?
Yes, but it is not recommended. Pairing it to another SoundTouch™ system involves multiple steps using the SoundTouch™ setup app. If you have several systems you’d like to use with the controller, a separate SoundTouch™ controller is recommended for each system.
Can I use several controllers to control the same system?
No. Only one SoundTouch™ controller can be paired to a system at one time.
How do I know which device or room is connected?
Simply select a preset and see which system reacts.
What is the range of the controller?
Approximately 70 feet from the paired system in wood-construction homes. In concrete, stucco or brick homes, the range will likely be less and may vary. The number of other active wireless devices in the house my affect range as well. You can also use the controller outdoors, but you shouldn’t leave it exposed to the elements or mount it outside of your home.
What if the range is not enough?
For most SoundTouch™ products, there shouldn’t be a range issue: the system the SoundTouch™ controller is paired to is usually in the same room. The exception is the SoundTouch™ amplifier, which is mounted often in closets, basements or attics. If the range is not sufficient to reach the amplifier, we recommend using Bose® Link extension cables to wire the SoundTouch™ adapter to an area within one wall or floor of where the controller is located.
Can I mount the SoundTouch™controller to a wall?
Yes, anywhere indoors with the included wall-mount bracket. The SoundTouch™ controller magnetically attaches to the wall mount so you can easily take it when you need it. The magnet is in the wall-mount—not the controller—so for example, you cannot attach the controller to a refrigerator.
How is the SoundTouch™ controller powered?
Four standard AA batteries. With typical usage, they should last 6 – 12 months.
How will I know when to replace the batteries?
When the batteries get below a certain point, the controller’s OLED display will indicate that it’s time to replace them.
Which Bose® products are compatible with the SoundTouch™ controller?
The SoundTouch™ controller works with any SoundTouch™ Wi-Fi system. The controller is included with the SoundTouch™ Stereo system and SoundTouch™ SA-4 amplifier, and may be purchased as a replacement remote.
