High-performance sound

The Wave® SoundTouch® system features the legendary performance of the award-winning Wave® music system. An exclusive Bose® innovation—waveguide speaker technology—delivers the deep, rich sound of larger and more expensive stereos.

Exploring music with SoundTouch®

With SoundTouch®, you can discover and enjoy music more effortlessly than ever before. Wirelessly stream millions of songs through Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio™ and Deezer, as well as Internet radio stations and your own music library. A powerful app lets you control your music from anywhere in the house with your phone or tablet. And six easily programmable presets let you play your favorite music from the app or the included credit card-style remote.

The Wave® SoundTouch® music system is also part of an entire family of wireless products, from one-piece music systems to home theater. They all work together to play the same music in every room, or different music in different rooms.

Elegant simplicity

The Wave® SoundTouch® system sets up easily in minutes. The app helps walk you through the steps. Regular or home-burned CDs/MP3 CDs load directly into the front, and your streaming music sources and AM/FM stations are available at the touch of a preset. A slim infrared remote control lets you operate all system functions from anywhere in the room, and the convenient touch-top controls for on/off/snooze are completely invisible. You hear your music with clear, full, accurate sound. All from a music system that fits virtually anywhere: living room end table, kitchen counter or bedroom nightstand.

Ease of use

Proprietary Bose technologies automatically perform many of the adjustments needed for high-performance audio. So you can enjoy the performance of a large, multi-component stereo without a row of controls. The large, easy-to-read display shows the music source, time and more. And the dual alarms are great for working couples who have to wake up at different times. If you like to snooze in the morning, just tap the top of your system to buy some extra time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Love it!!! I bought these speakers a couple of months ago and have been using it to play Pandora, Spotify and music using bluetooth. The outstanding and most noticeable thing with this product is the bass and quality of music at low levels of volume, the quality of bass is stupendous. I have used several systems in the past, including Sony and Sennheiser, but I have struggled to enjoy the Bass on low volume. You will be surprised to notice the size of the speakers in comparison to quality of music they produce. I also own a Bose Home theatre system connected to my TV and Yamaha Digital receiver and I might sound biased towards Bose systems. The fact is that there are other manufacturers who make amazing products which are comparable to Bose systems, but, one of the biggest challenges which I believe Bose has managed to solve in over a decade, is to make its products smaller, compatible and portable (portable across different environments and usage). Bluetooth + wireless, what else do you want. You can utilize these to pretty much play anything from smart phones, TVs, tabs, computers etc.. By the way, I also have Bose Premium audio system in my Car and I also use Bose QC 35 headphones. I can guarantee that I have never been disappointed.
