The radio that changed an industry. Now even easier to use.

Rich, room-filling sound from a compact tabletop radio that fits just about anywhere in your home. The Wave® radio III is our latest version of the product that brought radio to life in a whole new way—now with more convenience and more precise radio reception.

It comes with a built-in FM/AM tuner. Package solutions offer much more: music from your iPod®, plus Internet stations and playlists from your computer, smartphone, tablet or any Bluetooth® device. Your Wave® radio III can be your complete home audio hub—with sound you'd expect from a much larger, more complicated system.

  • Award-winning sound from a compact radio
  • Advanced tuner with radio text display
  • On/off/snooze with just a simple tap
  • Set two different wake-up times with independent alarms

Acclaimed performance

The original Wave® radio woke up an entire industry with its unmatched sound. And that hasn't changed. Bose proprietary waveguide speaker technology combines with advanced digital electronics to deliver performance well beyond the speakers' size. Get ready to rediscover your favorite tunes with details you may have never noticed before.

Elegant simplicity

"Setup" involves taking the radio out of the box and plugging it in. Done. It's that simple. You can operate volume, station selection and even some accessory functions with the convenient remote control.

Welcome additions

The Wave® radio III features some noteworthy updates. An advanced tuner delivers more precise radio reception and displays text information, like artists and song titles, from stations that broadcast it.

Waking up is now easier, thanks to touch-top controls and dual independent alarms. If you like to snooze in the morning, just tap the top of your Wave® radio III to buy some extra time. No remotes or buttons to locate. The dual alarms are great for working couples who have to wake at different times.

Yes. The Wave® radio III comes with a headphone jack.

How many Wave® accessories can I connect to the Wave® radio III at one time?
