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, more precise radio reception and built in DAB tuner.
It comes with a built-in DAB/FM/AM tuner. Plus, 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
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 favourite tunes with details you may have never noticed before.
"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.
The Wave® radio III features some noteworthy updates. An advanced DAB/FM/AM 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.

What different audio devices can I play through the Wave® radio III?
Aside from its built-in DAB/FM/AM radio, the Wave® radio III can play audio from most of today's portable music devices. The standard 3.5 mm AUX IN input accepts non-Bose accessories like MP3 and DVD/CD players, music phones and even older audio cassette players. Dedicated Wave® accessories connect to the radio's Bose® link input to offer a more robust listening experience from your compatible iPhone or iPod or wireless Bluetooth® devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops.
Does the Wave® radio III offer dual independent alarms?
Yes. Two different wakeup times may be set, customised for each person's preferences (radio station or beep, volume, etc.). This is handy if two people wake at different times.
Can I use headphones with the Wave® radio III?
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?
One. The Wave® III dock plugs into the system's Bose® link input. You may also plug the Wave® Bluetooth® adapter for Bluetooth® devices into the system's Bose® link input. Note: the Wave® III dock and Wave® Bluetooth® music adapter use the same Bose link input and thus cannot be plugged in at the same time. You may also plug non-Bose accessories into the AUX IN input using a standard 3.5 mm plug, such as an MP3 player, DVD player, etc.

Yes. The Wave® radio III can be used as Bose® Lifestyle® system expansion speakers via Bose® link.
