There’s a world of music out there. This compact system lets you easily enjoy all of it. Use it to stream millions of songs from music services such as Spotify® and Pandora®, thousands of Internet radio stations and the music stored on your smartphone, tablet or computer.

There’s also a CD player and AM/FM radio tuner. So you can hear whatever you want with room-filling Wave® sound—all from an easy-to-use system with a fresh, updated design.

  • Lifelike, room-filling sound for Internet services such as Spotify and Pandora, Internet radio, your own stored music and CDs and AM/FM radio
  • Works with your home Wi-Fi network and Bluetooth® devices so you can play almost anything you can imagine
  • Waveguide speaker technology delivers deep, high-performance sound
  • Free app transforms your phone into your music remote control

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.

More features

  • Auxiliary input to enjoy another audio source (e.g., MP3 or DVD player) through your Wave® system
  • Headphone jack for private listening
  • Large visual display with adjustable brightness and automatic nighttime dimming
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extraordinary Sound System I waited five years before buying this item and really it's worth the price. when you close tour eyes you have the feeling that a large speaker is playing. The sound is so live and powerful. I'm just happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded Expectations Replaced a surroundsound system (shown in the attached photo) that had been relegated to "music only" duty when we purchased a Bose Lifestyle AV35 a few years ago. The sound quality of the Wave Soundtouch IV is fantastic and, in classic Bose fashion, amazes all who hear it and see how small and "simple" it seems. The move to a mobile app for control is pure genius. We can now control with any of our iPhones and iPads from anywhere in the house. This helps offset the downside of the IR remote which is only line-of-sight functional. The unit was extremely simple to connect to the house network and associated music subscriptions and libraries. The app, contrary to some other reviews, is very easy to use, has all of the functionality that's necessary for this unit combined with the remote. I know there are plenty of audiophiles that turn their noses up at Bose for being primarily a marketing machine but being the owner of four different Bose products, I have never been disappointed. This unit is well worth the money. Great job Bose!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Sound I have wanted this system for months and decided to ask "Santa" to put it under the tree this year. It is worth every penny. The set-up took only minutes and connected to my iPhone and iPod effortlessly. I am thrilled with the quality of the sound that comes out of this small system and it sounds like live music being performed right in the room. I think that the radio antenna being built into the power cable is innovative and typical Bose. I also own Bose home theater systems in my living room and bedroom, as well as Bose Sound Link headphones, so I had very high expectations for this product. It did not disappoint. My next purchase will be one or two wireless speakers to use with my system. If you are an audiophile, this is the product you need!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home run! I bought a wave radio 17 years ago and gave it to my son (still worked great). We currently have three Bose wave products which includes the new wave sound touch iv system. I am very happy with the new system. The option for Wi-Fi and internet streaming radio is definitely a plus over the previous systems we have. I wish we could upgrade the wave touch iii systems with the sound touch base that we had so they were all linked. I also think the newer radio has a slight improvent in sound quality over the wave iii system.... Larger speaker opening the reason?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful sound and easy set-up! Just bought the SoundTouch music system last night and did the set-up this morning. I am not particularly techy but the set-up worked like a charm! Takes a bit of time to load the SoundTouch app on the various devices (iPhone 5, iPad, home computer, laptop, etc.) that you will use to control the device, but nothing difficult about it. Lots of prompts and information that guided me through the process.I have the system linked to my iTunes music, SiriusXM, Pandora and IHeart radio, to name a few. The system is playing right now and the sound is great. Would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great System I bought the Wave SoundTouch IV a week ago replacing a Wave I I've had for some time. I also have a Wave III with a 4 CD player. I wanted the SoundTouch to be able to access internet radio and music apps such as Pandora via Wi-fi. I set it up and had it working in less than an hour. I am totally satisfied with the product as I can now pull my music collection from my PC, listen to virtually any radio station and use my Pandora subscription. My wife got the Wave III for her sewing room so everyone's happy. I'm now looking at the SoundTouch 10 for a different room. If looking for a quality wi-fi music system, buy this product, you won't be disappointed.
