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. You no longer have to use a computer to hear the music you want to hear.

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.

Music is one touch away

When it comes to music, you know what you like. That's why we designed SoundTouch™ Wi-Fi music systems differently than others. They feature six presets that you can easily set (and change) directly on the system or with the free SoundTouch™ app. Instantly, your favorite music plays at the touch of a button, like on your car radio. It's an approach that makes streaming music as easy as turning on a light—only much more fun.

Powerful SoundTouch™ app

The SoundTouch™ app makes it easy to explore new music and manage what you have. Use it to drag and drop any music source—a favorite Pandora station, a playlist, Internet radio—to your six presets. Now they're just a touch away, from anywhere in your home. But when you want to venture beyond your presets, use the app with your computer, smartphone or tablet to find other 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.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bose meets my expectations A remarkable and very satisfying streaming radio system. I recently received the Soundtouch system as a gift and can candidly say it is the best music streaming system I have had the pleasure to listen to. Bose hit a home run on this product. It even out performs my Bose radio hands down, and I thought that was the best. Sound quality is exceptional and meets my demand for clear quality sound from a radio - regardless of the operating system. I have an expensive home entertainment system with ceiling speakers throughout the house and haven't used it since. I am now considering buying a second portable unit so that I can easily move it around the house or outside and still get the same quality music. If I could recommend one improvement it would be more programmable stations. Six just isn't enough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent speaker I received the Soundtouch 30 Black as a Christmas gift. I was considering various other brands, but when I hear this device at Best Buy, I was sold on it. Though there are many brands in competition for best sounding wireless speaker, I found Bose to have that extra detail and quality that I was looking for in sound. In addition, Bose design is always accompanied with elegance.The following factors is why I chose Bose over Sonos. Though the Soundtouch 30 is marvelous, it is not a miracle speaker. I does have it's coverage limits. My house has an open floor plan, and the speaker dosen't carry into other rooms as I expected it to upon purchasing it. Because I am so satified with the product, I will be purchasing the Soundtouch 20 within the next 6 months to complete me package. I am almost certain that 2 Soundtouches 30 for a big room and 20 for medium-small would be a sufficient set to satisfy any single family home owner for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stream music apps I bought SoundTouch 30, a year ago. It is OK via WiFi and Aux inputs. Besides using Airplay app on iOS, I also used the applications to stream music (via wifi connection) as AllConnect and Allstream for Android OS; Airfoil for Windows OS; they are OK.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do your homework before you buy it. This system has the BOSE high quality standard of excellence when it comes to sound. The complaints (as have heretofore been explained by others) is that this system will only play music via WiFi and Aux inputs. You cannot store songs on this unit, nor can you effectively stream music outside of Apple's iTunes and the corresponding devices. If you have an Android phone...good luck. The apps I have found that "work" are clunky and hard to use. They aren't officially supported at this time...so you get what you get. Too bad the focus is Apple centered and not more universal when it comes to Android devices. If BOSE will finally make this more system-platform agnostic, then this device will warrant a 5 star rating. Until then...middle of the road is the best rating I can give.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for Android Users For Sound quality I like to give 5 Star for this product, obviously it is Bose but I doe not buy and pay money just for aux play. Let me tell all limitation. I can not create a library from songs store in my android OS device. All problem is with app limitation. I can not play songs in my tablet over wifi. System must support feature like chrome device where I can transfer any sound (video or audio player from any source like YouTube or my video recording playing in my local ). In single line not valuable for money as it advertise a wifi speaker. Not a good idea to buy it. I have a simple question to Bose "does your company going to upgrade SoundTouch app (not just minor bug fix).FROM BOSEThis is good feedback and thanks for providing it. We've passed this information on to our software team. Our SoundTouch products also have a dedicated website where the community can leave feedback and request features. Additionally, new features for the systems will be posted there as soon as they are available. You can visit https:--www.soundtouch.com-Community to access the most up to date information about the SoundTouch products.Thank you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Caution on Sound Touch WiFi systems I can only relate based on my experience with my Sound Touch Wi Fi adapter but must issue a Warning to anyone considering making a purchase of a Wi Fi Bose System. I've used Bose products for over 30 years and always been pleased with their product but feel that Bose has really failed on this system. I was so encouraged when I realized they had this system so decided to add it to my new CineMate system in the Man Cave. Must have the CineMate one with 4K televisions. My sound Touch system has been nothing but a headache and to this point still isn't operating. I've had the adapter and most recently my control unit replaced and still can't make the connection via my android Samsung. I've been on the phone with technical support 2 or 3 times during the process. When it worked it was great but only worked about 3 weeks before I began having problems. So Buyer Beware!FROM BOSEThank you for taking the time to leave this review. We're sorry for the ongoing issues you are having and we take this very seriously. One of our wireless specialists will be reaching out to you shortly to help solve this and get the system back up and running for you. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from any song..any time..sound touch 30 …the future of music streaming... I just bought a sound touch 30 from a bose outlet store at a great price. So far the results are fantastic. Sound is typical for a bose product..outstanding. My experience in setting the unit up was painless with no issues. One of the better features of the system is the Deezer service. With access to 37 million songs i have become the defacto DJ of our social group. Also, if you travel, you can access any local, national or international radio station..internet permitting..of course. This will certainly give satellite radio a run for the money…no regrets with this baby….

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So Disappointed I have had this system less than 60 days and I am constantly having problems with it. We are constantly going through setting up everything time we use it. My spotify account will connect most days but if I want to go into the Bose app on my phone I have to go through set up.... It never shows connected. And not I have a problem with it that isn't even in the owners manual. I can't get anyone on the phone to help me ... and to be honest the Blue Tooth would have been much better. I have great internet connection with a dual broad band router so there should never be any problems. I wanted something that I could use "with a click of a button" It isn't worth the $400 I paid when I could have gotten a portable Blue Tooth one for half.....FROM BOSE: Hi Godfrey, We apologize for the issues you are experiencing and would definitely like to assist. If you can please contact us at 800-905-2156 while home with your system, we’ll do what we can to help with a solution. Our wireless support team is available Monday – Friday 8:30 AM to 10 PM and Saturday 9 AM to 7 PM, Eastern Time. Thank you.

FAQs

FAQs

What is needed to set up my SoundTouch™ system?

All you need is a home Wi-Fi network and a smartphone or tablet. Everything else required is included in the box.

Do I need a smartphone or tablet to use the system?

No. Once you've set up the system, you can access your music directly using the six presets on the system's button panel or remote. You'll use the SoundTouch™ app on your smartphone or tablet when you want to explore more music or reset some presets.

Are SoundTouch™ systems Bluetooth® compatible?

No. SoundTouch™ systems are designed for use in and around the home on your Wi-Fi network. Bluetooth technology is best-suited for mobile on-the-go applications where close-range connections are generally preferred.

What Internet streaming music can I play?

SoundTouch™ systems let you play Internet radio stations from around the world. Where available, you can also play Internet music services like Deezer, Pandora®, Spotify® and iHeartRadio®.

Can I play music stored on my computer?

Yes. SoundTouch™ systems can play music stored on your computer that is managed by iTunes® or Windows Media Player.

Can I stream from apps or music stored on my smartphone?

You can stream music from an iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch® to SoundTouch™ Wi-Fi music systems via AirPlay®. You cannot stream music stored on an Android™ phone or from apps on an Android phone.

Can SoundTouch™ systems be used in a public Wi-Fi spot (airports, coffee shops, etc.)?

No. Although most of these networks are free to use, their sign-up/sign-in processes differ from the SoundTouch™ app setup process. SoundTouch™ products are designed for in-home use, not on the go.

How many systems can I have on my network at one time?

It depends on the bandwidth of your home Wi-Fi network. For most homes, we expect you can have up to four systems connected wirelessly. For more than four rooms, we recommend using Ethernet wired connections to some of them.

What operating systems are compatible with the SoundTouch™ app?

The app is compatible with Windows® XP, 7, 8; 64-bit Macs running OSX 10.6.8 and later; any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS5 and later; Android devices running Android 4.03 and later.

Can I stream music from multiple computers using SoundTouch™ systems?

Yes, if you have multiple SoundTouch™ products, you can stream different music in different rooms, the same music in every room or customize zones to play what you want where you want.

Can I stream video?

No. SoundTouch™ systems are designed for audio only.

Can I set the presets on the system itself?

Yes. Just press and hold a preset (either the buttons on the system or remote control) to save whatever you're currently listening to. Note that you can also use the SoundTouch™ app to drag and drop presets from your computer or smart device.
