    Aesthetically pleasing. Bought the SoundTouch 300 to replace my Definitive Technolog speaker and Integra system. Replacement was due to moving into a new house with TV above fireplace. Tower speakers would have worked but I had to compromise with my wife. So out with the old and in with the new. While the Bose does not compare to my old system when it comes to sound and power, it is sufficient for the money. I had roughly $4k invested in the old system. To expand the Bose sound I will need to add the sub and virtually invisible speakers. When will the VI speakers be available in white?

    Most bang for your buck! So I’ve been using the Bose SoundTouch 300 soundbar for a little over a two week timeframe. I must say that this is an excellent soundbar. Not only that, it gives you the potential for expanding as the budget allows. I love that it enables you to match the sound dynamics with your specific room, 4K HDMI input/output, and/or Optical. I was a little skeptical at first but the sound and bass is quite potent for a soundbar but then again, it is a Bose. I tried it in my bedroom and my living room and in both places it performed very well. It has ADAPTiQ audio room calibration from Bose which can be configured at 5 locations to ensure best performance regardless of your location within the room. Now I am not expert but while watching a movie I thought I heard a sound coming from my kitchen. Now I have not seen other soundbars do that unless you have other speakers hooked up to the system. In addition, it has wireless streaming capabilities and so far I have not had any issues with it. You have the option of playing music through Bluetooth as well as Wi-Fi if you use Pandora, Amazon Music, or SiriusXM. I’m sure you can stream other services but those were the ones that I used. The soundbar looks slick yet discreet.
    It is easy to set up and sounds great. After having it for just over a couple of weeks I decided that I do not need the wireless subwoofer but that is just my personal preference. I really like the option of using either Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to play music. I like that there is an ARC connection. Looks awesome too. While I have no need for the universal remote included, I’m sure it is great for some people. As far as price goes, the price is decent considering you are buying a Bose product.

    soundbar of the century. When receiving the Bose Soundbar 300 I was expecting just a little sound to boost the TV or play music through my living room. Boy was I surprised when my house inside and out was filled with sound without using Maximum volume. There is some type of sonic device that allows you to calibrate the soundbar to work the best in your home. To me it seemed like a dolphins echo locator. After completing that task the sound bounced off the walls. I would watch a movie and feel like I am at the theaters. The quality of the speaker gets a big fat 100% it is sturdy a little heavy but not to bad. I do not have to worry about my kids breaking it. The Bose Soundbar 300 surpassed all quality standards I had in mind. The design is perfect, the Bose Soundbar 300 fit right under my TV with no problem. The Bose Soundbar 300 did not take to much room everyone that came but was amazed at the sound that came from that little bar. My soundbar is very easy to use not to mention the remote control is universal with all the codes located in the manual. I can’t say that it was lacking in any features due to it going over and beyond what I could have imagined. My daughters love having dance parties blasting music on the our Bose Soundbar 300. I recommend this product to all family and friends. I give this product 5+ stars.

    Sound quality that my family can enjoy! My family and I are sticklers when it comes to our sound systems. My family and I are always looking for ways to improve the sound for our family movie nights, video gaming, and music experiences. Well Bose out did themselves when building and designing this Soundtouch 300. Before even hooking it up and hearing it in action I could tell this is a beast and is going to give a top of the line quality sound and a sleek stylish look that will enhance my entertainment center! My family and I are loyal gamers and play in leagues, so to have a high definition sound is very important to us. Well that is just what this Soundtouch 300 offers. I can hear my opponents and the sound effects of the game crystal clear making my gaming experience reach a new level. We also do family movie nights once a week and with this system it just helps you get lost into the movie. My kids love watching their favorite films while using the Soundtouch 300, they say to me “mom this is just like at theaters”. This also a must have if enjoy listening to music like my daughter and I do. You can get a pretty loud sound and can adjust the bass to make music really have some kick behind it. I like to use the bluetooth feature to link my google playlist from my phone to the Soundtouch 300. I recently had friends and family over and we turned on some music to get yhe holiday spirit going and all my guest could not help themselves from staring at the system. I got so many complements on how awesome it sounds and looks. Setting up this Soundtouch 300 was very simple and user friendly. This included everything I need to set it up including the correct sound cable. I have
    a 60 LCD TV I bought 2 years and the HDMI
    Arc cable was not compatible but no worries
    there because this included and additional
    optical cable that did the trick. The universal remote control is pretty sweet as well, I could
    link it to my TV and my DVR with full functionality just like the factory one that
    came with them. Cant forget to mention that
    it also included an ADAPTiQ headset. I
    definitely would recommend this to all my
    family and friends. This is a extremely nice sound systems that has excellent quality, sound, and looks sleek and sharp!

    Give it a try, and you would like it. I always thought that a Soundbar should do a world of good for the PC setup I had – which predominantly is for my photography work. I had progressed from various desktop speakers – From Mercury to Creative’s SoundBlast – 2.1 and 5.1 to Klipsch’s 2.1 ProMedia, and finally moved to a vibration speaker from Adin – a very useful and powerful speaker. The reason why I moved to a smallest possible speaker – that too a vibration – is because the speaker is dependent on a medium to produce sound. I could place it on a solid wood, or a glass surface, and each surface would produce distinct music – tones. It had been my companion for a good 3.5 yrs, and I was looking for something more, as its were outweighing the benefits, mainly because of the necessity of a medium. This affects the way I could hear the music – my thoughts were to go back to my Klipsch, and then I saw Bose had released a Soundbar.

    When I heard of Bose was coming up with a soundbar which includes a variety of connections/streaming – it got me interested. Though my makeshift speaker has both wired and Bluetooth connections, the output wasn’t all that enthusiastic. Everyone I spoke had been using the soundbar with their TVs, but I researched to see how people use a soundbar with their PCs, but couldn’t find much about it – as everyone has different configurations and soundcards. I found that my motherboard (Asus Z87 Pro V) supports both HDMI and SPDIF, and the latter my folks, is how Bose is streaming all my FLAC and Wavpacks! Yes, Bose 300 Soundtouch 300 soundbar supports – WiFi, Bluetooth, HDMI and SPDIF!

    I have been using the Soundbar for about 2.5 weeks, and the music is far better. It is actually music to my ears! The connections were straight forward – I used the SPDIF cable provided and connected my PC to the Soundbar. Enabled the optical output on my PC’s sound configuration, powered on the Soundbar and that’s it. All sound! I used the Adapatiq calibration tool and positioned myself across 5 places to make sure, I get consistent and constant tones across the room. I am not sure why the calibration is just limited to 5 points and not more. Wouldn’t a larger room need more points for calibration? Since the SB is intended for a large living room? Though, there is specification not to place the SB in a corner, I went against it and it still gives great output.

    About the music,
    I predominantly use my PC for photography and keep myself occupied with a library of songs that I had built over the ears. Occasionally, I watch a movie or animation with my two-year-old son. There seems to be a balanced output from the SB. Midranges are pretty good. I couldn’t get a chance to play high bass or trebled music. I am sure there would be shortfall on that, as the SB has to be coupled with Acoustimass 300 Subwoofer for a good bass effect, though there is an inbuilt option to switch bass using the remote. Back to topic: I was able to hear and feel the surround sound effect, even hearing tones and instruments that I had never heard in the songs I had heard before. That was something very revealing. Switching to the dialogue option on the remote enables to a good voice output while watching a movie.

    Finally,
    Bose, known for their range of music speakers and ear/head phones, has made sure that they are in the market for more – exploring the Soundbar, but the competition is pretty stiff with people settling for other brand’s low priced soundbar which does give similar output, but having used it for a while, I would say though priced well above the competition, it may be worth your money for the brand. I’ll be posting more reviews going forward on the Soundbar – try other options to connect to the soundbar – cellphone and WiFi streaming. At a first try, the procedure to connect to WiFi was cumbersome and couldn’t be achieved with their manuals, I could never connect with my phone to enable the WiFi on the soundbar. I had to rely on my PC to enable and activate the WiFi on the SB.

    Nice Upgrade. We got the Bose Soundtouch 300 to upgrade from our Samsung HW-H450. In all reality I was expecting more of a theatre like sound when watching movies. The Soundtouch has amazing clarity sound and it’s very sharp, yet it’s lacking in the bass department. I’m guessing this might be cause we only have the sound bar and no subwoofer. We use the Soundtouch daily in our family room and it’s hooked up to our Samsung Smart TV and Apple TV4. The design is great! Not huge or bulky and having minimal hookup wires is a huge plus. The setup process is quick and pretty simple. Very easy to use and having one remote to control everything is awesome. All in all I think it’s a great product, but I highly recommend to purchase the subwoofer as well.

    Amazing sound bar. I have had my new sound bar for about two weeks. This sound bar really exceeds my expectations I absolutely love it . This Bose 300 soundbar has great features one of my favorite features is the sound touch app. I can play music from my phone through the soundbar it’s great . I am a huge fan of being able to be outside of my house or in another room and can still control the sound and music while not being right in front of the soundbar. The sound is so crisp no static at all . Another huge plus for me is this soundbar makes watching a movie feel like you are in a theater. The thin glass top and slim look gives it added style that you don’t see in most soundbars. I didn’t have to purchase anything to be able to use my soundbar right away it comes with all the cables , remote and even batteries for the remote . I’m super happy it comes with a headset that way if I want to have it turned up when others don’t I won’t be disturbing anyone it’s a win win situation for us all. It’s even really easy to to keep clean just lightly wipe it down and you are done. I honestly can say this is the best soundbar we’ve ever had and I wouldn’t want a different one it’s wonderful. Super easy to set up , very durable , love the design beyond great product and fabulous quality

    This is the greatest sound system ever.! This sound system is awesome. It literally shakes my living room. The Bose soundbar 300 completely changed the way you watch TV and movies. Completely exceeded my expectations. Sounds fill my entire room as if I was in the movie or in the studio where the song was recorded. The slim design makes it very easy to change around and it matches my living room. First time hook up was a breeze, it was very easy to setup. NFC connection is very much appreciated just set it on top and it’s connected. My only bad thing is there isn’t any physical display unless you download the soundtouch app. Overall if your looking to upgrade your home system this would do the trick. It’s not very big in size but it makes up in sound and that’s weary really matters. I’ve already recommended this product to many friends and family members.

    Arlene434. This is my first time buying Bose. I have been admiring Bose for many years, just never broke down and purchased it. While I was in the store shopping (for a new surround sound system) and testing the sound quality on SoundTouch and heard the sound that came out of the SoundTouch 300 I was blown away. But the price scared me away. I purchased another system but was disappointed and found myself a few weeks later buying the sound bar, subwoofer the two small surround sound speakers and speaker stands from Bose. Here it is day two having this system and I have no regrets and it’s worth every penny. All my other devices was connected to my tv so the sound comes though the sound bar subwoofer and the two surround speakers. All works great. I should have done this to begin with. But I finally learn my lesson. I tell all to invest in this product if you love quality. My movies and music sound awesome. It’s like fine wine and a good meal. Thanks Bose. I’m a believer and a customer for life!

    Worth Every Penny Spent !!!! I had my eye on this product since its launch. Finally got it in time for christmas and since then I have not left my house. The sound is crisp, clean and controlled. The sub gives you the feeling that its there and it does not bother you.

    The Set-up –
    1. Unbox – give or take 15 mins
    2. Hook Up – give or take 05 mins
    3. Adapt IQ – 05 mins

    All in all 25 mins. Easy Like Sunday Morning

    Totally recommend this product to whom who wants a minimal look, rich sound and an immersive movie / music experience.

    PS: Just have to figure out the universal remote control – nothing to do with the product – just my learning curve 🙂

    I have owned SoundTouch systems since 2015, and have continued adding on to original configuration over the years. I just installed a refurb10 for use on my patio. (Currently – 1×30 plus 6×10; 2 of the 10s are setup as stereo pair). INSTALL: I have never had any problem installing or setup; I am not sure why others have had problems. So I was curious if this was a new problem as I added this new refurb unit this week. But worked flawlesslly thorugh the sounddtouch app. SYSTEM FEATURES: In addition to sound quality, the features I love and use most: 1) stereo pair capability; 2) the 6 pre-set buttons for any apps, and now favorites ; 3) app partnerships are all the main apps – eg iHeart, tunein, Amazon, Spotify. 4) Spotify app is really cool because it allows you to run directly form the Spotify app or through Soundtouch app. Spotify app has expanded feature capabilty than through Soundtouch app, and you can add Soundoutch speaker as output device. 5) ability to add one or many speakers to same “station” through the app, and are perfectly linked as you walk from room to room – no reverb or delay There are other features I do not use, but I have played with: bluetooth, Alexa, direct connect, PC music library. They all worked well. We have enjoyed our system so much that we have given the speaker names to represent cruises and vacations we have been on, instead of “kitchen” or “family room”.

  14. Dretlaw,

    I was first exposed to the unbelievable crisp and clear sound output of a Bose wave radio when I visited a friend’s home over 15 years ago. I could not believe where this big sounding music was originating from as they had no stereo component systems. After inquiring with my friend, he said it was a Bose wave radio/CD system. Since then, I’ve always wanted a Bose wave system, but never quite got around to owning one. After coming across the latest SoundTouch wave IV version on sale, I finally bit the bullet and purchased one. Unboxing the system brought back fond memories of that iconic shape and listening to a couple of songs, the sound is just as crisp and clear as I remembered. The sound is well-balanced with good bass, although some may criticize it for not having more. It depends on how much bass was actually recorded in the original tract. The wi-fi set up was a little frustrating at first, but after establishing connection, it never had any hiccups. I am able to stream my Amazon music or play music from my smart phone via bluetooth. Along with Amazon music, other online music services (e.g. Pandora, Spotify, Sirius XM, iHeartRadio, etc.) can also be set up as presets for easy access. The power cord serves as the radio antenna, and so far, the radio stations I listen to are clear without any audible static interference. I also have many music CDs that I am now looking forward to listening to again. For those who are not tech or computer inclined, an aux port is available to connect a music player or smart phone to play music wired. Eventually, I plan to purchase other SoundTouch speakers to have the option of playing the same music simultaneously in other rooms or even outdoors via the SoundTouch app. I love the touch on/off feature but wish the remote control had glow-in-the-dark buttons. I also need to remember to put it at the same spot every time to prevent losing it. I chose the Espresso as it blended well with my matte black entertainment center. I’ve had the SoundTouch wave system IV now for a week and love it and I’m looking forward to many years of listening to great music/sound. I’m glad to finally own a wave music system which now has even more play options than before. I highly recommend it.See more

  15. Cookie,

    This was a Christmas gift for my Mom. We have rhapsody, now Napster accounts. We wanted my mom to enjoy her favorite songs, on a Bose, without YouTube’ing songs. Really wish it was just the regular Bluetooth that just simply connected to your phone, versus an app with only the few music apps chosen by Bose (not to include Napster). We also enjoy listening to the radio and thought it would be clear with the digital transceiver; same reception as our last radio. Not the worst, not the Bose I was expecting.See more

    I bought the Bose SoundTouch 300 with subwoofer because I have a couple other Bose products. Also I like the brand so I went this. The setup was complicated and also the feature that made me return the SoundTouch 300 and subwoofer was that if the system is idle for 18 minutes with no sound coming out of the SoundTouch 300 it would shut off my tv and the SoundTouch 300. There is no way to turn this feature off. I looked and saw other people had this issue also. People complained about this feature.See more

    While it says it takes Alexa voice commands, it also requires ANOTHER Alexa device to talk to it. Instead of saying, ‘Alexa play Pandora’, you must tell your Alexa device, ‘Alexa tell Bose to play Pandora’. It listens to Alexa, not you. It was about $100 for this speaker, and ANOTHER $100 for the Alexa speaker. Alexa speaker has great sound – making the Bose speaker useless – it was returned.See more

But worked flawlesslly thorugh the sounddtouch app. SYSTEM FEATURES: In addition to sound quality, the features I love and use most: 1) stereo pair capability; 2) the 6 pre-set buttons for any apps, and now favorites ; 3) app partnerships are all the main apps – eg iHeart, tunein, Amazon, Spotify. 4) Spotify app is really cool because it allows you to run directly form the Spotify app or through Soundtouch app. Spotify app has expanded feature capabilty than through Soundtouch app, and you can add Soundoutch speaker as output device. 5) ability to add one or many speakers to same “station” through the app, and are perfectly linked as you walk from room to room – no reverb or delay There are other features I do not use, but I have played with: bluetooth, Alexa, direct connect, PC music library. They all worked well. We have enjoyed our system so much that we have given the speaker names to represent cruises and vacations we have been on, instead of “kitchen” or “family room”. The attached photo is Barcelona.See moreWhile it says it takes Alexa voice commands, it also requires ANOTHER Alexa device to talk to it. Instead of saying, ‘Alexa play Pandora’, you must tell your Alexa device, ‘Alexa tell Bose to play Pandora’. It listens to Alexa, not you. It was about $100 for this speaker, and ANOTHER $100 for the Alexa speaker. Alexa speaker has great sound – making the Bose speaker useless – it was returned.See more

  23. Dretlaw,

    I was first exposed to the unbelievable crisp and clear sound output of a Bose wave radio when I visited a friend’s home over 15 years ago. I could not believe where this big sounding music was originating from as they had no stereo component systems. After inquiring with my friend, he said it was a Bose wave radio/CD system. Since then, I’ve always wanted a Bose wave system, but never quite got around to owning one. After coming across the latest SoundTouch wave IV version on sale, I finally bit the bullet and purchased one. Unboxing the system brought back fond memories of that iconic shape and listening to a couple of songs, the sound is just as crisp and clear as I remembered. The sound is well-balanced with good bass, although some may criticize it for not having more. It depends on how much bass was actually recorded in the original tract. The wi-fi set up was a little frustrating at first, but after establishing connection, it never had any hiccups. I am able to stream my Amazon music or play music from my smart phone via bluetooth. Along with Amazon music, other online music services (e.g. Pandora, Spotify, Sirius XM, iHeartRadio, etc.) can also be set up as presets for easy access. The power cord serves as the radio antenna, and so far, the radio stations I listen to are clear without any audible static interference. I also have many music CDs that I am now looking forward to listening to again. For those who are not tech or computer inclined, an aux port is available to connect a music player or smart phone to play music wired. Eventually, I plan to purchase other SoundTouch speakers to have the option of playing the same music simultaneously in other rooms or even outdoors via the SoundTouch app. I love the touch on/off feature but wish the remote control had glow-in-the-dark buttons. I also need to remember to put it at the same spot every time to prevent losing it. I chose the Espresso as it blended well with my matte black entertainment center. I’ve had the SoundTouch wave system IV now for a week and love it and I’m looking forward to many years of listening to great music/sound. I’m glad to finally own a wave music system which now has even more play options than before. I highly recommend it.See more

  24. Cookie,

    This was a Christmas gift for my Mom. We have rhapsody, now Napster accounts. We wanted my mom to enjoy her favorite songs, on a Bose, without YouTube’ing songs. Really wish it was just the regular Bluetooth that just simply connected to your phone, versus an app with only the few music apps chosen by Bose (not to include Napster). We also enjoy listening to the radio and thought it would be clear with the digital transceiver; same reception as our last radio. Not the worst, not the Bose I was expecting.See more
