If you’re like me and always read product reviews from real people before splashing out, then you’ll probably be feeling utterly confused as to which wireless speaker to buy. So many conflicting reviews on these things. I was deliberating between the sonos play 5 or the bose soundtouch 30, in the end i followed my gut instinct and went for the bose.Not disappointed at all, in fact over the moon with itit’s attractive and fits right into my interior. It’s really easy to set up, just downloaded the bose app, registered it and away you go. Not had any issues with wifi connection, although i do have a wifi booster anyway. Love the 6 presets and the remote, it’s handy. Those people complaining about too much bass or sound distortion at high volumes, this is rubbish.Sound quality is brilliant, very natural.

Amazing around the house as they all link perfectly using. Amazing around the house as they all link perfectly using the app. Here are the specifications for the Bose SoundTouch 30 Series III Wireless:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • The best-performing one-piece wireless music system from Bose
  • Works with your home Wi-Fi network and Bluetooth devices so you can play almost anything you can imagine
  • One-touch access to music services (Prime Music, Spotify, Pandora), internet radio and music library playlists with six personalized presets
  • Powerful control with the SoundTouch app for your smartphone or tablet
  • Part of an entire family of Bose wireless products; dimensions: (H x W x D) 9.7 x 17.1 x 7.1 inches (25.75 lbs)

The sound from this thing is amazing, i already own 2 series iii 20’s and 1 series iii 10 which sound very good, but compared to this there nothing. The base and overall sound is so natural sounding. I have also connected this to smartthings and my logitech harmony hub, so have even more options to control it and automate it. When i was looking to buy other speaker for my dining room, i was looking at another series iii 20, as the price of this was really putting me off, however i took the plunge and bought this for my lounge and moved the series ii into the dining room, i did get this was £50 off which did ease the pain, however i would say hand on heart, for the extra £150 the series iii cost compare to the series ii, its money well spent.

Bass excellent 4 n half/5 every thing else 4/5 looks very good but n gr8 for tv n movies if you get n analogue 2 digital convertet but music excellent.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • If like me you have music via Amazon prime then simply
  • Big and bracing!
  • Amazing around the house as they all link perfectly using

Great bit of kit, for all you purists no the sound quality isnt as good as seperates, but its fine and the convenience of streaming makes it 5 star.

This bose soundtouch series iii wireless music system sits at the top of the bose soundtouch range and marks an evolution rather than revolution of a popular range. The key changes to the recently released series iii are that airplay has been dropped in favour of a bluetooth solution, the cabinet finish has been tweaked and i also i believe the price has been reduced too. In the box you get the speaker, mains lead, remote and instructions which are on a massive single sheet – you won’t miss them.To get going you have to register the device by downloading the bose sound touch app and creating an account – this enables you to connect the speaker to your network, be warned, even the bluetooth connectivity won’t work until you’ve done so. The unit also has built in support for deezer and spotify which is welcome. The overall build quality is top notch and my black version features a carbon fibre finish which looks really good, however, the remote, whilst adequate, is not of a commensurate build quality. There is a minimalist control panel on the upper surface of the unit with 6 presets and a discreet display on the front telling you the connection status and which scrolls the track title and artists name. Both installation and operation are slick and simple plus the unit looks really good in situ – minimalist but authoritative and it draws admiring glances. Make no mistake this 30 series model is heavy and fairly large, it is not designed to be a portable system so has no internal battery, however, you are rewarded by an excellent sound.

This speaker works non stop if you download the soundtouch app on your laptop and transfer your wmp songs there. Then everytime you go into it and play songs, it switches on the bose automatically. I have only just recently found this out. It used to drop out of the bluetooth everytime i played it directly from my wmp but now that’s a past problem. When i reshuffle songs on the wmp it automatically syncs the app. If you love deep bass in music, this is for you. Reggae lovers will enjoy this system very well cos it brings out every detail in the reggae and makes it heavenly.

A big speaker with big sound. . As i already own the soundtouch 10 and 20 i bought this thinking i knew what to expect, superb sound quality from a quality speaker. Absolutely blown away with the difference between the 20 and the 30. Take nothing away from the 20 as it is fantastic but the 30 with the inclusion of bose soundwave gives off a far more powerful sound with amazing base that would has no trouble filling a 20 x 14 room at even half volume. Make no mistake this is seriously powerful and has no noticeable distortion even at full volume ( i haven’t been able to keep it at over half tho due to not wanting to annoy my neighbours). The speaker unit is large (prob 1. 5 x the size of the 20) and heavy unlike the 10 and the 20 which are probably more suited if you plan to change rooms often. The build quality is excellent.

Bought it for my husband who thinks it’s great. We really rocked the foundations of the house when we turned the volume right up. Recommended by our son in law so great job.

Great sound but let down by amateur software. Having been a user of bose products for many years, i purchased the soundtouch 30 along with a selection of 10s and a 20 for use in multiple rooms. The sound quality is great and certainly up to the bose standard i have come to expect but it is seriously let down by the app which is unreliable and lacks some basic features (alarm clock function?) that users have been requesting for some time. The ability to play the same music across multiple rooms is great – when it works. The app (running on mac os and ios) is flaky and keeps crashing. I have lost confidence in bose products. Great hardware but the software is way behind where it should be.

Great bose sound as usual. . As per usual another superb product from bose great sound from a relatively small speaker. I use only as a speaker and can’t comment on its other functions.

Bit big for taking somewhere – it’s possible but really meant to stay in a room.

If like me you have music via amazon prime then simply. If like me you have music via amazon prime then simply link an echo dot (and ignore the low star reviews simply complaining that prime is only supported in us). I now have a voice activated bose soundtouch 30 with full amazon prime access.
