Product overview

Night moves

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. The SoundTouch® 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, the system or the included remote control.

Make it your main audio system

Press a preset … and listen. You'll hear why this is our best wireless music system before you reach the bridge of the very first song. A high-power woofer reproduces the soul of bass notes with depth and clarity. Two precisely positioned drivers tackle the mid/high-range notes with crisp, vibrant definition. Exclusive waveguide technology is also key to delivering the robust performance that pours from the SoundTouch® 30 system. Make it your main audio system, and let the power of your music shine through.

The power to grow your system

Start with one and add more whenever you want. The SoundTouch® 30 wireless music system is also part of an entire family of wireless products. They all work together to play the same music in every room, or different music in different rooms.

Free app puts you in control

The SoundTouch® app lets you explore music services like Spotify and Deezer. It also gives you access to thousands of Internet radio stations and your stored music library, so you can always find the perfect soundtrack. The app also transforms your phone into a powerful remote so you can control your music from anywhere in your home.

SoundTouch®—truly different

Set up six custom presets through the app or on the system itself. Make one a Pandora station and another a Spotify playlist. Your remote and SoundTouch® speaker will automatically remember them.

So when you want to use your phone or tablet to control your system, you can. And when you don’t want to power up, swipe and put in a passcode—you don’t have to. Just use the remote or press a preset button on your speaker, and your music starts in an instant.

Bluetooth built in

SoundTouch® systems now feature Bluetooth connectivity to stream music from any compatible device—whenever you want. This allows you to listen to even more sources, like YouTube.

Two color options

SoundTouch® 30 is available in Black or White and will look right at home in any room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a SoundTouch 130, 30, and 20...about the 30 After buying a SoundTouch 130, I was working in another part of the house thinking, "wouldn't it be great to have the same music playing in the rest of the house." It was at this time that I realized that I already had the building blocks in place to make that happen. I bought a SoundTouch 30 to place in the family room - Kitchen combination. Out of the SoundTouch 30,20 & 10, it has the best sound. It can cut through the noise and fill the space with music. It cost a lot more than the other SoundTouch speakers, but it will work in the larger spaces. It is heavy so it will not be portable sound like the SoundTouch 20. Because of the price, I only bought one to use in the biggest area. I use two other SoundTouch 20s through other smaller areas of the house. It is extremely easy to set up. I primarily use Pandora, Iheart Radio, and Blootooth streaming. I usually use all speakers connected together "playing Everything." I know there are people that love Bose and people that do not like Bose. I have always had great customer service and I have always had few issues with there products. The sound delivers...I would buy this again. This is the most exciting purchase I have made in a good while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced my Vandersteens and not looking back Just bought this trying to downsize everything in my life and what an amazing piece of electronics. Sound quality is excellent, it's easy to set up and easy to stream from computer or using the explore button to access online music. Only annoying thing is when you download the app on your computer you end up with some file called "Homer files" I am still trying to get rid of it. Come on Bose, you can do better than this in the tech department if you can create this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!!!! As Bose multiple home theater sys customer , I can not tell you enough how thrilled I am with this product switching this device from Sound link2 to Sound touch 30 series in my office settings. I am absolutely amazed at the clarity, the power and the most amazing sound that comes out of the Sound Touch 30,It has the power for a larger area as well, but I am enjoying every minutes of it. This system is a no brainier. To me it was money well worth spending. I am extremely satisfied and I highly recommend this great innovating system from BOSE !!!!. VIVA AMAR BOSE!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Speaker I have ever owned This speaker packs a punch, and the sound quality is unmatched. It has the capability of getting as ground shaking loud without distorting any of the music. The craziest part is that you can also make it extremely quiet to the point of you can barely hear it and the sound quality will still be preserved. These features make the speaker usable in any scenario. I can play light background music when family is over and turn it up when I have friends over. On top of that, the Bluetooth feature allows my friends to plug right in and play new songs that they want to show me. Before this I had only the older model of the 20 that doesn’t have Bluetooth, and the craziest part is you can “play to all” from the new speaker when your streaming Bluetooth, and it plays the Bluetooth stream on speakers even if they don’t have that feature which is AWESOME!!! I can’t be happier with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabalous Sound and Easy Set-up Just purchased the Sound Touch 30 after comparing the sound between this one and the 20. Definitely worth the extra amount for the rich sound and deep bass. The sound fills a large open family room with very high ceilings and have yet to crank volume more than half way. Set-up took a few minutes with the app and transferred itunes music library from desktop. Great to play back itunes library as well as internet radio and pandora. Wish it had more presets but the feature works fine as is using the app. Have not tried the bluetooth feature but like that its an option now on the product.

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.

Does the system support Bluetooth®?

Yes. Users can wirelessly stream music from a Bluetooth device to listen to even more sources, such as YouTube.

What Internet streaming music can I play?

SoundTouch® systems let you play Internet radio stations from around the world. You can also play Internet music services like Deezer and Spotify.

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.

What are the differences between the SoundTouch® 10, 20 and 30 wireless music systems?

Even though the SoundTouch® 10, 20 and 30 all offer Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth® connectivity and effortless one-touch presets to access your favorite streaming music, they each provide different levels of performance for different-sized rooms in your home. The SoundTouch® 10 is our smallest SoundTouch® system that delivers full, rich sound and Bose® performance that seems to defy its size. The SoundTouch® 20 is a compact, wireless music system that delivers clear, room-filling sound. The SoundTouch® 30 is our best-performing, one-piece wireless music system with Bose® waveguide speaker technology that produces deep, rich sound to fill your largest room. Another difference is that both SoundTouch® 20 and 30 display in-depth song, artist, station and connectivity information on an OLED screen whereas the SoundTouch® 10 displays simple connectivity information via 4 LEDs on the front of the product.

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, 10; 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, as long as each computer has the SoundTouch® app installed on it. Each computer appears as a separate library on the app's source list.

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.

Can I stream different music to different rooms?

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 play stored music from an NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive on SoundTouch® systems?

Yes, SoundTouch® systems are compatible with select NAS drives, including Synology’s DiskStation and Western Digital’s My Cloud™, so you can stream your personal music library even while your computer is off.

Can SoundTouch® systems stream AM/FM radio or TV audio from one room to another?

No. SoundTouch® systems are designed to stream Internet radio, music services or music stored on a computer.

Does the system support AirPlay?

No. Current systems no longer support AirPlay. However, previous generation SoundTouch® 20 and 30 systems will continue to support it.

What is the acoustic technology in the SoundTouch® 30 wireless music system?

The SoundTouch® 30 system uses a 9-lb woofer firing into proprietary waveguide technology to provide the low notes, while two drivers in the top front corners provide the mid to high frequencies. This is our best-performing, one-piece wireless music system with deep, rich sound powerful enough to fill the largest room in your home.

What is the difference between SoundTouch® 20 and 30 Series II and Series III?

The Series III uses a new dual band wireless platform that improves Wi-Fi performance in order to achieve faster speed, better range and less interference with other Wi-Fi products. Series III systems can also wirelessly stream music from Bluetooth devices. Additionally, the Series III has a new color treatment. Series III systems do not support AirPlay.

Does the system have a battery?

No, it does not have a battery.
