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.

SoundTouch™ systems connect directly to your favourite Internet stations and streaming music sources like Deezer™ and Spotify®, 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 favourite 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 favourite Deezer™ station, a playlist, Internet radio—to your six presets. Now they're just a touch away. 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 home cinema. Start with any one SoundTouch™ system, and keep adding them whenever you’d like. These systems work together to create our most powerful multi-room listening experience ever. You can stream different music in different rooms, the same music in every room or customise zones to play what you want where you want—even outdoors.

FAQs

What is needed to set up my SoundTouch™ system?

If you have a computer and a home Wi-Fi network, you have all you need for setup. Everything else required is included in the box.

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

No. You can use a computer to explore music and personalise presets using the SoundTouch™ app. And you can access your presets directly through the system's buttons and remote control, without having to use a tablet, smartphone and, once set up, a computer.

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™ and Spotify®. We'll continue to add new ones that become available.

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 customise zones to play what you want where you want.

Can I stream video?

No. SoundTouch™ systems are designed for audio only.

Can I use the SoundTouch™ controller with these systems?

Yes. The SoundTouch™ controller is an optional remote that can be used with any SoundTouch™ product.

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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound but drops out As usual with Bose the sound is excellent, but the preset radio constantly drops out. I've tried moving cordless phone away from it as advised, have checked the wifi connections etc but the radio constantly drops off. It is irritating given the price of the unit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissatisfied I own a SoundTouch™ 30 Series II Wi-Fi® music system. I have had it about 18 months when I listen to music from my iPhone or iPad view AirPlay it keeps breaking up or stopping. It doesn't matter whether I listen via spotify or my ITunes. Given the cost of this system I am getting very annoyed by the performance. Do you have any ideas how I might solve this issue?? Radio works fine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound and quality....app needs improving I have had the SoundTouch 30® for a month. I bought it to pair with my Cinemate 130® TV sound system, to provide music for a large kitchen/dining room. The set-up is straightforward, and the sound quality is very good. The only issue I have had is with the app. It works fine on the Mac but only allows me to access the music library on the Mac. My partner and I have different music libraries on mobile devices, and we cannot access these. It is possible to stream via AirPlay but this only works for the SoundTouch, not the Cinemate. This seems needlessly complex, and I would have thought that it could be solved simply. The App is functional but could be significantly improved. Overall a great system though

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound Personally, I had no problems setting up. I hadn't realised that once you have set up the presets for radio stations with your computer, the computer doesn't have to be connected thereafter, you just hit a preset number and the Bose connects to the radio station through the router. The address must be stored. Use it just like a radio once presets stored. As for sound, which is why I bought Bose, there is nothing similar with such a nice deep warm bass. No, there are no tone adjustments, but Bose spend years researching the right sound at the given volume. Stick with it and you soon realise its the best sound there is. Not experienced any wi fi problems at all. Nothing else has such deep bass, so I decided it is going to be my main hi fi and sold my lifestyle system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bose Sound.... But Great sound from the Sound Touch 30. This is a fantastic sounding speakerGot this in my lounge.Sound fills the ground floor.Lots of shortcomings though with the SoundTouch software App -Airplay has been known to drop out occasionally. It shouldn't because this unit is within 6 feet of my BThub5.Soundtouch app I feel is in its infancy & primitive compared to the Sonos set up and the new controller app ver 5.Sountouch app requires a lot of development especially with regard to -(1) provide live music streaming services ie 'Spotify' 'Google Play' etc etc(2) provide individual room speaker equalisation(3) improve the resolution for presentation of album artwork.(4) include 'crossfade' for songs,sleep timer,add to favourites etc etc.I am sure once Bose have addressed these issues in a year or so, SoundTouch will then provide some serious competition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good BUT Quite expensive, and sound is mega, but there seems to be no way to reduce base and treble etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Have been tempted by Bose for a while... This does not disappoint! Easy set up and sounds fantastic! Only comment is the user interface on the app needs a bit of work as quite basic. Otherwise this device is awesome!
Date published: 2014-05-23
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not entirely sure - still after 4mnths The product sound good but I have not had a very good connection with my music library. This keeps falling off and the SoundTouch shows an error 1806! My wireless connection has all bars blazing and yet I can't get the music library even today but can get the radio. A bit not impressed
