SoundTouch® 300 soundbar

Overview

Overview

You want the best sound.
So we made our best soundbar.


Many people view soundbars as a common solution to space-saving home cinema. But we don't aim for "common".

The SoundTouch 300 soundbar offers the best performance, spaciousness and bass of any one-piece soundbar of its size. Every cubic inch of it is packed with technologies that bring out the best in everything you listen to or watch. Custom drivers, proprietary QuietPort and PhaseGuide technology … and the feeling of hearing sounds where there are no speakers. It all adds up to a premium audio experience for all your entertainment.

… and it looks as good as it sounds

It's a statement in craftsmanship, really. This slim wireless soundbar features a premium glass top and perforated wrap-around metal grille that really draws the eye. And don't give that tempered glass top a second thought. It's as strong as aluminium of the same thickness—but much better looking.

Less effort, more music

With the SoundTouch 300 speaker, we put a lot of thought into taking the thinking out. And that extends well beyond its home cinema performance. When it comes to enjoying your music, you can listen whichever way you want, without worrying about which technology is best. This speaker lets you play music directly from a phone or tablet using Bluetooth®, or connect the speaker to your Wi-Fi® network for instant in-home listening, without the need for your phone.

Fast, simple control of all your music

Experience your favourite music from your SoundTouch® speaker with the SoundTouch® app. SoundTouch® lets you take total control of your listening experience, right from your smartphone or tablet. Browse popular music services like Spotify® and Deezer, Internet radio or your stored music library. Easily personalise presets for one-touch access to the music you love, and control one or many SoundTouch® speakers around your home.

Bose + Voice. Now you're talking.

Play music. Turn it up. Or even ask what's playing. Without lifting a finger.

Enjoy hands free voice access to your music on SoundTouch speakers using any Alexa enabled device—like the Amazon Echo Dot. Just open the Alexa app. Search for "Bose" under the Skills menu. Then follow the simple one time setup.

So what can you do? Plenty. Start your funk playlist in the kitchen. Turn the volume up or down. Change tracks. Find out what's playing. And even control where it's playing—from the speaker in your kitchen to the speaker in your bedroom.

FIND A STORE near you to experience the Bose Skill for Alexa.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from ST300 amazing when twinned with VI300 Amazing Aesthetics and premium sound Having owner the Bose Soundtouch Soundbar for the past year and impressed by the immense sound by the bar on its own, I saw this as a further progression and extension, of my setup. I was happy with the sound produced from the soundbar, however now with these added I have a real and immense cinema setup. I expected the quality from both build quality and sound to be of the highest order, going on my previous experience of Bose equipment, I have never been let down, I have previously owned QC20's, QC25's along with a Bose Soundtouch10 Speaker setup. This has replaced my Roth Bar and Sub superbly, the bass is superb and tbh I don't feel that the bass is far off what I received with the separate hub on the Roth bar. Let me start with the design, the bar is just short of the length of my 42" TV and sits nicely in front of the TV without being overbearing or blocking the view as the height of the Bar is minimal. The speaker grill goes all the way around the front, sides and part of the back, this ensures sound is deployed to the area of the room that it is supposed to be. Albeit not a full 5.1 setup, the way this works is very impressive for such a compact unit and in our 4m x 3m living room the sound is impressive. The VI Speakers are compact and cubed, I have them mounted on brackets and they look superb and are ideally placed behind the sofa. The design of the product is focused on a premium feel and look along with superb sound quality. The top of the bar is a high gloss/glass look, this looks superb however ensure that you have a polishing cloth nearby as it does attract dust, a quick wipe and it looks like new again. As stated the length and height is ideal as it is not over bearing and doesn't try to become a "feature of the room" more of a simplistic and stylish accessory. Bose have managed to create an aesthetically pleasing device with crisp and quality sound dispersement in a device that would suit any living room. Straight out of the box I plugged it in, everything you need to get it hooked up are included. It comes with a HDMI cable, Optical Cable along with power cable and setup cable/microphone. I would advise reading the instructions before setting up, if this is done, setup is very straight forward. Everything revolves around the universal remote control and it guides you through the full process by verbal commands. You have to use the setup headset to ensure that the sound is perfect in the areas you usually sit in to watch tv or listen to music. There is a distinct difference if you listen to it when you haven't set the listening zones. With the VI Speakers added in certain films and sports it sounds like the crowd are behind you, which is AMAZING. You can set it up to play music or sound from your devices via Bluetooth and Wifi and this works through the Bose SoundTouch app available on android and iOS. This is a well thought out and designed app which focuses on ease of use and simplicity. I have also been advised it has NFC however I do not have devices that support this, so can't comment on this function. The included universal remote is a thing of brilliance and has replaced my All 4 One remote which we have had for the past 6 years. It allows you to control all devices easily and is easy to learn. The feel of the remote is once again premium and Bose has designed it to ensure that all features of modern day TV's can be controlled by it, ensuring that you don't have to go and find the remote for separate devices for certain functions. It also features a smart "all off / all on" feature which will turn on or off with a touch of a button. Overall this is once again a killer product by Bose, which albeit produced after many other manufactures already had products on the market. There is nothing I can identify that I am missing from this setup and think the R&D team have nailed this product to meet customer's expectations. We had friends over last week and they commented without prompting on the sound, we watched Iron Man and they loved the Depth of Sound provided. To the point where they have ordered one of these for themselves on Amazon. To sum up, if your looking for a sound bar that produces crisp sound and quality aesthetics. This is a must to consider and I highly recommend the Soundbar with the Virtually invisible speakers for truly immense sound. I highly rate this sound bar and invisible speakers and wouldn't do without it. well done Bose, albeit the delay this has been worth the wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer This was a real game changer to my TV experience. Flat TV’s look great but lack a lot in the sound department. Luckily, we have Bose! This bar is not only stunning to look at, it also packs a punch! Great quality sound, easy to use, and easy to pair with the subwoofer and virtually invisible speakers, making a superb home theatre! I love it and highly recommend it! It will completely change the way you watch TV or stream music.

FAQs

FAQs

Can the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar be wall-mounted?

Yes. The optional WB-300 wall bracket let you mount the SoundTouch® 300 flush to the wall.

How do I connect a Bluetooth® device with the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar using NFC?

Select the Bluetooth® source on the remote (or via the app). Ensure your mobile device has NFC turned on. Gently tap the device near the Bose® logo on the top of the SoundTouch® 300, and your device will automatically pair.

How do I connect a Bluetooth® device with the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar without using NFC?

Press and hold the Bluetooth® source button on the remote for several seconds until the light begins to flash. Ensure your mobile device is in pairing mode and select the SoundTouch® 300. You also can pair your mobile device to the SoundTouch® 300 using the SoundTouch® app. In the app, find the SoundTouch® 300 in the device tray, select "explore" and then select Bluetooth®. On your mobile device, select the SoundTouch® 300.

What kind of batteries does the remote control use?

The remote uses 4 alkaline AA batteries.

How does the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar connect to a TV?

The simplest way to connect the SoundTouch® 300 is via an HDMI™ cable to your TV. If your TV has an "HDMI-ARC" connection, you should use that connection. If your TV does not have an HDMI™ connection, then you should connect the SoundTouch® 300 to the TV using an optical cable.

What placement guidelines should be considered to ensure optimal audio performance from the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar?

The SoundTouch® 300 uses the reflective surfaces of the room to deliver a spacious home cinema experience. To ensure optimal audio performance, the soundbar should be placed equidistant from each side wall and directly in front-centre of the TV. No objects should be placed on either side of the soundbar, nor should it be placed inside a cabinet, as this would result in a limited sound stage.

Can source devices, such as a cable box, iPod®, gaming system, etc., be connected directly to the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar?

Yes. For the simplest connection, you should connect all sources to the TV, and then connect the TV to the SoundTouch® 300 via HDMI-ARC. But if your TV does not have enough open HDMI™ ports, you can disconnect one source from a TV HDMI™ slot, then connect the SoundTouch® 300 to that open HDMI™ port. Then, connect that source to the soundbar and utilise the "pass-through" capability of the SoundTouch® 300.

Can I control the bass?

Yes. Bass can be controlled via the bass button on the universal IR remote control or via the settings menu in the SoundTouch® app.

Do I need a separate receiver with the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar?

No. The system connects directly to your TV.

Is the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar compatible with 4K video?

Yes, this system will pass through Ultra High Definition 4K video from a source device to the TV at 60 frames per second (FPS).

Does the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar have a headphone output?

No.

Can I use the SoundTouch® presets with the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar?

Yes, like other SoundTouch® systems, the SoundTouch® 300 uses presets via the SoundTouch® app and the remote control.

Does the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar have Bluetooth® and NFC built in?

Yes.

What accessories are available for the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar?

If you want to add deeper bass to your soundbar, then you can add on the optional Acoustimass® 300 wireless bass module. If you want to have a more immersive surround sound experience, you can add the optional Virtually Invisible® 300 wireless surround speakers. And of course, if you want the full 5.1 experience, you can add them both.

What can I do with the Bose Skill?

With Bose Skill, you can play music on your SoundTouch speakers by talking to any Alexa enabled device, like an Amazon Echo Dot.
