Bose SoundTouch 30 series III review

 

The 3rd generation SoundTouch 30 was a solid performer in 2016 - how does fare it two years later?

Powerful, spacious presentation ; Good sense of timing and dynamics ; Decent low-end authority

Doesn’t build on detail of smaller Bose speakers ; Coarse treble and hardness at volume more noticeable against newer rivals ; Control app is a slight disappointment

Two years is a long time in this market, and our re-testing of the SoundTouch 30 series III shows it’s now time for a fourth iteration

Bose SoundTouch 30 Wi-Fi system

 

Great sound hampered by selective connectivity

Wonderfully loud sound ; Modular setup ; Simple interface

No Bluetooth ; Not enough support for online services

The SoundTouch 30 will deliver punchy audio to any sized room, whether it plays a role in a larger speaker network or it is used as a primary sound system. The ability to pair multiple systems together makes the SoundTouch a worthy adversary to Sonos’...

Bose SoundTouch 30 Wi-Fi music system review

 

Bose delivers wireless audio that works perfectly and sounds amazing, but getting it set up is exceedingly cumbersome.

Given the high cost, it's hard to recommend the Bose SoundTouch 30, particularly as it won't be any audiophile's choice as the primary speaker. This is an interesting device which could be used in multiple scenarios, and there's no denying that it...
