I thought it was overpriced, I was so wrong

By Straffy

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System:

On Christmas 2015 I bought a SoundLink Mini and I was so satisfied (see my review) that last Christmas I decided to step up a little and buy another speaker with a little more power to listen in the kitchen and the living room, and at the end decided for the SoundTouch 20. At the beginning I was a little startled by its price, at that price you can buy a much bigger system, but I did not want a big system. I do a lot of casual listening when I am at home, especially streaming music, and this speaker with WiFi capability seemed perfect to me. And its size of course, I wanted something bigger than the SoundLink Mini to have more power, but still I wanted it to sit on the counter of the kitchen. I am do glad I bought it. For my use, it is just perfect. It seats on thecounter between the kitchen and the dining/living room, it is quite a large space and the little guy is able to fill it with music quite easily, keeping the volume just above half. Of course this is not a surround system, do not expect the floor to shake, but the quality of the audio is really good, like the SoundLink its position needs a little adjustment to get a balanced sound otherwise the bass is a little too overpowering. The aesthetics is great, it can blend in any space, it is really well built, easy to pair if you use Bluetooth, the WiFi connection is great, so far it never lost it. It has a rechargeable battery inside, so you can disconnect it, take it into another room (it is not that heavy really and easy to carry) and it remembers all the settings. It is great for music streaming, you can preselect up to six internet stations and select them pressing one of the buttons. It has a nice black and white display that shows you in which mode it is, and details of the song it is playing. With these six stations you can use it standalone, without the use of any external device. A WiFi device is needed to configure it, and the process it is very easy using a free application that you can download from whatever platform you use. I really like the volume, usually when the volume is set using two up/down buttons there is too much difference between steps and sometimes you can't set the volume at the right level, it is either too low or too high; not with this device, pressing the volume buttons a bar indicator showing the volume level appears on the display, and you can easily and fast reach the desired level. My only critic is the user interface of the associated app. It works great to configure the WiFi and set up, very easy to use. Unfortunately it is not intuitive at all when you want to listen to it, the few buttons are confusing and it took a while to me to learn the steps to select which "mode" to use and how to select the station. I found myself thinking "now what", so I started tapping buttons, only after few days I got used to it. Overall I really recommend this product. If you don't need WiFi connection you can find something cheaper, otherwise this is perfect.

Missing AirPlay and Apple Music

By AlaskaKid

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System:

I bought ST 30 based upon past experiences with Bose products. It seems Bose is struggling to make their products relevant. I was disappointed to learn their is no support for Airplay. Bluetooth is okay but seems ST 30 does not automatically connect via BT as your earphones do. That said, my preference is WiFi and Apple AirPlay. Therefore I see no option but to return this product.

Beautiful sound, just ok tech

By Jonny

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System:

I have the SoundTouch 30 and 20 systems. The sound from both systems is phenomenal - clear, true and rich. The 30 is powerful enough to fill a large great room and almost an entire ground floor (approx 1.2k sq feet). We use it with various media including internet radio, iTunes and a lot of Spotify. The downside of Bose wireless systems is their lackluster tech - meaning SoundTouch app and integration with wifi and Spotify. Setup can be simply difficult to get working properly with multiple failures to connect either to wifi or Spotify. Often the system will get "confused" when switching from one media type to another and crash, requiring a hard reboot (i.e. Unplugging it and replugging it). The SoundTouch app has improved a lot in the last year but is still prone to not finding speakers on the network. Bose Wireless speakers cannot integrate with home automation and I would like to see Bose work on adding IFTTT and home automation hub support (Wink, Samsung SmartThings).

Perfect for my needs.

By TEBNYC

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System:

It's hard to believe that such great sound comes from this little unit. Setup was a very simple procedure as was the app that controls the various features. There may be a premium for BOSE products but it's well worth it. Wifi and bluetooth work flawlessly as does the downloaded app for my Mac. Don't waste your time looking for something better. In my opinion there are none. Great job BOSE.

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System:

I've owned BOSE systems for the past 17 years. I've been impressed with their equipment over the years and they seem to get better and better. Love the design, compact, easy set up and most importantly the sound they provide. I recently bought the SoundTouch 30 which I have in my garage and it's buy far the best ever! This system not 5 stars but 10 STARS !

Nice System - suggestions

By annebose

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System:

Have one sound wave, one twenty, one thirty, one mobile (no longer made), two tens, and one remote for my stereo. These soundtouch speakers are great sounding and easy to control. App needs to have on/off timer for morning and night time listening. Need to get with the times and have it connect with Amazon Alexa.

GREAT SPEAKER BUT NEEDS APPLE MUSIC SUPPORT

By Alecg01

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System:

Great design, amazing sound quality and pretty easy to use and setup. The only thing that this speaker needs is support for Apple Music so I can play my music from my account. Right now I have to use Bluetooth to play my music library (which works great). But if Apple Music was supported for this product, I would be able to use the presets and more of the features(without just using pandora or iHeartRadio). Please solve this issue, I'm sure many Apple Music users would benefit from this. Thank you!

Questionable at first, then totally satisfied.

By SARSeattle

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundTouch 20 Series III Wireless Music System:

I recently purchased this item for home use. I wanted a speaker to connect directly to my iMac and stream via Bluetooth. At first I found the same issue others have mentioned with way too much base I kept getting a mid-range tone feedback, perhaps due to placing it on a shelf directly in front of a wall. I kept trying to adjust the iTunes equalizer to compensate. I finally ended up downloading both the phone and mac app and synced them with the system. The app on my mac easily synced with my iTunes but I found the sound to be very flat. I found that streaming via bluetooth produced a crisp clear reproduction. I was amazed it was similar or better to the analog 3.5 mm mini jack connection. My advice for the base is to download the SoundTouch app and there you will find an option to adjust the base. Once I dropped it from 9 down to 4 or 5 the sound was perfect. I was able to return my equalizer to the normal settings I use, Rock or Electronic. If you plan to try this out in a store I suggest you pair it to your phone to hear the full sound quality. The demo is running with either a flat or no equalizer which makes the unit sound a bit dull. Use the pairing demo with your phone and make sure you have your EQ set to rock, electronic, etc. The sound will be completely different. Excellent job Bose on producing an understated, and attractive device with excellent bluetooth streaming and audio quality. I plan to add a few more SoundTouch devices in my house to stream in multiple rooms.
