Bose SoundTouch 30, 20, and Portable Wireless Speakers

Bose SoundTouch Wireless Speakers

Bose just released three SoundTouch Wi-Fi music systems, which let you stream music wirelessly in any room. Each speaker connects directly to the Internet using your existing home Wi-Fi network. If you have Wi-Fi at home and a computer, you have all you need to stream your stored music, Internet radio or music services. Every SoundTouch system is designed to automatically receive software updates to add functionality and content. SoundTouch systems will first offer Pandora (where available), and add the world’s most popular music services regularly, like Deezer, iHeartRadio and others.

Three one-piece wireless music systems debut today, each engineered to deliver the best audio performance available from speakers of their size:

  • The SoundTouch 30 Wi-Fi system measures approximately 10″H x 17″W x 7 “D. It features exclusive waveguide technology and a new proprietary woofer to deliver deep, rich sound and the power to serve as a home’s main music system.
  • The SoundTouch 20 Wi-Fi system is more compact at about 7″H X 12″W and 4″D. It offers natural, room-filling sound and can be placed almost anywhere.
  • The SoundTouch Portable Wi-Fi system combines full-range audio and a rechargeable, lithium-ion battery in a speaker no bigger than the average book — about 6″H x 10″W and less than 3″D. Take it with you in and around the home, and the music keeps playing.

Users can start with any SoundTouch system and add others for a multi-room experience: play the same music in every room, or different music in different rooms, indoors or out.

SoundTouch Wi-Fi systems offer streaming music at the touch of a button, or an app for advanced functionality. They feature six presets on the system itself or the system’s included remote, and each can be personalized to an Internet radio station, music service channel, or stored playlist. Set a preset, and it only takes one press — one second — to your favorite songs. It’s as easy and effortless as flicking a light switch.

The Bose SoundTouch app then lets you use your smartphone, tablet or computer for powerful capability and control: browse and discover content, operate any system in any room wirelessly, and combine all music services and stations with one look and feel. The new SoundTouch app is compatible with most Android, iOS, Mac OS and Windows systems.

Bose will also offer the SoundTouch controller, an accessory premium controller that works with any SoundTouch system. It features a circular design, volume dial and proximity sensor. All essential functions and information are integrated, including an OLED preset preview. The SoundTouch controller can be placed on a table, or on the wall using an included bracket.

For added flexibility, SoundTouch wireless speakers are also AirPlay enabled, so owners can stream content from their iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch.
