With the SoundTouch™ Portable Wi-Fi® music system, you can stream Internet radio, Pandora® and your digital music library easily with just the touch of a button. And because this system is so portable, you take it with you from room to room — even out on the patio. Wherever you place it, you'll experience your music with clear, full sound.
The SoundTouch Portable connects to your home network for wireless operation. Internet radio and popular music services are built in, so you'll have a world of music conveniently available at your fingertips.
The SoundTouch™ Portable features six preset buttons for quick access to the music you want to hear.
The free SoundTouch™ app from Bose® is the key. It gives you easy control of the music using your smartphone or tablet of choice. The app lets you assign up to six presets from your favorite sources. Presets can be just about anything you want — an Internet radio station, a Pandora® station, a playlist from your own music library, or a favorite artist. Plus, you can use the app to play music from additional stations or services not saved in your presets.
Don't have your smartphone handy? No problem. You can access all six presets either with the included remote, or simply by using the control buttons on top of the SoundTouch™ Portable.
The SoundTouch™ Portable is AirPlay-compatible, so you can wirelessly stream from your iPhone®, iPod touch®, or iPad®. Enjoy great sound from your favorite music app, a collection of tunes from your library, video soundtracks or game app sound effects. You can also stream music from your laptop or desktop computer's iTunes® library.
Add more SoundTouch™ systems to create a wireless multi-room audio system that's simple to use. You can play the same music simultaneously throughout your home, or have each SoundTouch™ system play different music from a different source.

You cannot set presets for AirPlay or the Aux input.
Aux Input: In addition to WiFi network connectivity, the SoundTouch Portable is fitted with a rear-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting almost any portable audio device with a headphone or audio output.

OLED Display: The system's OLED display provides source and song/station information.
Rechargeable Battery + AC Power: The Bose SoundTouch portable music system operates off of both a built-in rechargeable battery and AC power. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to 3 hours of music playback at maximum volume. The included external AC power adapter is used to recharge the battery and provide constant AC power to the music system. When you press and hold the unit's power button for a few seconds, a battery charge indicator icon will appear on the OLED display; it will show either <20%, <40%, <60%, <75%, <100%, or fully charged.
