Music Throughout the House...Great!

Thomas from Waterbury, VT on 1/4/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just received and set up two of these to add to the Bose SoundTouch Music System IV Christmas present for my wife. They sound great, although full volume overdrives them a bit, but full volume is not necessary. I also bought and installed a Bose SoundTouch Wireless Link adapter to the aux in to my receiver/amp to send the sound out to all of its remote speakers. Now, I can play the same, or different music or streaming radio, wireless, throughout the house, as my wife has always wanted, turning on, or off, any speakers as desired. The only detraction to any of the Bose "SoundTouch" devices is that the WiFi setup via the app takes a bit of patience, and not as straight forward as I had hoped. However, a little patience, and in the case of setting up the wireless "Link Adapter", help from Bose Tech Support (excellent) now has all working fine.

Pros: Great distributed music and streaming radio throughout the house.

Cons: Patience required to set up with the "app", and no ability to send "aux in" signal (i.e. CD iPod...) to all of the speakers.

Anonymous from Douglassville, PA on 1/3/2018

Good sound, but it won't stay connected. I had it connected to an Echo Dot, and if I set up the bluetooth connection, it stayed connected for a while, but eventually disconnected. Bought an aux cable and switched it to aux. Again, ran for a while in aux mode, but the next day it reverted back to bluetooth with no connection. Press off button, and it does not tuen off...it cycles through the modes and stops on wifi (standby?) mode. Tried to troubleshoot through the app, but the app is pretty useless. I can't bother with reconnecting or setting it up every day. I'll just use it in my shop or somewhere I don't need it to stay connected.

Pros: good sound, slim design fits in many places

Cons: doesn't stay connected in any mode

I connected four Bose SoundTouch 10 wireless speakers with a Bose SoundTouch Wave in 2000 sq foot house. As usual with Bose they sound great! Plus, I cannot say enough about Crutchfield's technical support. I've been a Crutchfield customer since before they likely kept records. Their technical support is absolutely outstanding!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I already have several SoundTouch speakers, and needed one more. At first I was skeptical that the small SoundTouch 10, could reproduce quality sound, but no more. The sound quality and the amount of base, from this small speaker is amazing. I,m using one of these in a bathroom and one in a bedroom and they're more than adequate.

Pros: Small size, easy to set up, amazing sound quality.

Cons: None

Tried for Hours to Get a WIFI Connection. I Really Wanted This to Work

Paul from Havertown, PA on 8/8/2017

On paper, the Bose SoundTouch looked like the ideal solution for my 86 year-old mother-in-law. It could be set up to stream internet radio stations by merely pushing a button (#1 for classical, #2 for swing band jazz, #3 for show tunes, etc.) -- ideal for an individual not technically inclined. The preset buttons are unique to Bose. For instance, a Sonos speaker would require using an smart phone app to do the same thing. I am so bummed. I tried for hours to connect it to the WIFI in her retirement community. I had no problem at all connecting an iPhone, iPad and 2 PCs but the Bose would simply not connect. I really wanted this thing to work. The setup instructions are wretched. No documentation unless you go to the Bose site. Then there are all the 'secret handshakes' not documented in one place (press the '1' and '-' button to do this or the '4' and '-' button to do that) Clearly a half-baked product with no regard to user experience. Maybe it can be redeemed with future firmware updates, but don't count on it. I purchased it at locally at a big box store (same price) but ended up returning it. I guess Bose still lives up to its reputation: Badly Overpriced (and Overrated) Stereo Equipment.

Pros: Preset buttons make it simple to use.

Cons: Poor documentation. Complicated setup. WIFI connectivity issues.

Andrew from Mcdonough, GA on 5/29/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This really is one of the coolest things I've bought in a long time. I was wondering exactly how it worked when I read about it online and decided to give it a try. Turns out that you can use the wifi or Bluetooth. It will connect to your home wifi and 'mimic' your mobile device for Pandora, Spotify etc. So once you get it synched up, you can just turn the speaker on and it will start playing whatever mix or station you programmed. Your mobile device doesn't have to be in the room or even turned on for that matter. Alternately, you can use the Bluetooth and it will just play whatever's playing on your device. It has a line-in jack as well for old-school connections. We love it and I plan to slowly get more until we have multiple linked up throughout the house. The sound from this small unit is about perfect for our average-sized kitchen. Would like to see them add support for Napster!

Pros: easy to use, good sound, flexible options

Cons: no napster support?

Great Bose Sound From A Small Package!

Gary from Willow Spring, NC on 5/21/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Added this speaker to my Bose Wave Internet Radio and Bose Soundtouch 20 speaker. Sounds great all thru out my 2 story house. Soundtouch app works good on my Apple Ipad, Windows 10 Laptop, and Android cell phone.

Pros: Speaker sounds great and I love the compact size. The remote is an added feature.

Cons: Soundtouch app needs to be reworked. Does not work on my windows 7 computer. Crashes and can't find my speakers. Bose Tech Support could not fix problem. Also Bluetooth keeps dropping out on my Android cell phone.

Just what I expected

Anonymous from Valencia, Ca on 2/7/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for use with Amazon dot. Unfortunately the unit goes to sleep mode while in Aux after 20 minutes of inactivity making it completely useless. Bose Tech support has no fix for this problem. Sound quality is mediocre. Would never buy another Bose product. Way overpriced.

Pros:

Cons:

Great presence in a small package

Rickster from Chapel Hill, NC on 1/8/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this to pair with my SoundTouch Wireless Link and hifi. Playing Pandora all the time since I bought SoundTouch. Love it. Setup over wifi can be frustrating, though. Hopefully, they'll improve the app and connectivity over time. As far the speaker here, it has great presence. You can be in another room and know it's there. Do you really need to listen at full volume all the time, or do you just need music that fills the air? Bose exceeds all at the latter. I'll be adding another in the future.

Pros: Pairs great with Soundtouch wireless, bringing your old hifi into this streaming age. BT also available, if needed. Play synced with hifi or independently.

Cons: Setup could be improved; a little pricey; needs AC

Very fine sound quality from such a small unit. Did take a little time to set up, but nothing too complex. No hesitation in recommending. Only 6 presets may be a limiting factor for some people

Pros: Excellent sound quality. Excellent customer support from Bose and from Crutchfield in case you have a problem or a question

Cons: Only 6 presets, but easy to work around with the app. Did take a little time to set up. I did not think setup was that intuitive, but that may be more a reflection of my computer skills (or lack of)

Jessica from Zanesville, OH on 6/27/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The preset buttons are my fave, so convenient. I was debating over spending the extra money for the 20, which is supposed to be the room filling size, or save money and try the 10. The 10 has plenty of volume and sound and I have no regrets choosing it. My husband plays it in his office all the time and it sounds amazing. Since this is supposed to be the personal size, the convenience of a battery rather than a cord would make this speaker pretty perfect.

Pros: Preset buttons Wireless AND Bluetooth Sounds amazing Easy to use

Cons: Corded

Added a SoundTouch 10 to a system with a SoundTouch 20 and love the expansive sound from one room to the next. Fabulous sound quality (of course, it's Bose)! Size is perfect for tucking in a spot where it can be unobtrusive if that's the way you roll. Me? I love the design of the SoundTouch system so mine are placed to be appreciated visually and audibly!

LHS from Arizona on 11/29/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The sound from these speakers is phenomenal. It is very clear and crisp and has good bass. I blue-toothed one speaker to a 55" Samsung 4K TV and the sound is excellent and fills the entire 10x12 room. One speaker is more than enough. In addition, I placed 2 speakers in an audio room (15x20) and they provide more than adequate sound for a room this size. The speakers are extremely easy to connect via wi-if or blue-tooth and I am using both of these connections. Recommend these speakers highly for their excellent sound, versatility and ease of set-up. They are well worth the cost.

Aux Input: In addition to wireless WiFi & Bluetooth connectivity, the SoundTouch 10 is fitted with a rear-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting almost any portable audio device with a headphone jack or audio output. An available firmware update lets you distribute the aux input for multiroom audio.

IR Remote: The included IR remote provides basic wireless operation of the Bose SoundTouch 10 speaker. You are able to Power the unit on/off, adjust volume up/down, select between Bluetooth or Aux sources, or choose between the six music presets. You also get basic playback functions, such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track. You even get to rate your music (thumbs up/down) from the remote as you listen.

Alexa Skill (via Firmware Update): The new Bose Skill for Amazon Alexa is available through a free network firmware update and is enabled through the Skills section of the Amazon Alexa companion app on your Apple iOS or Android device. The update enables you to control certain elements of the SoundTouch experience through Alexa by speaking to an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Tap,  Echo Show, or other Alexa-enabled device. Simply say "Alexa, ask Bose to...". Voice control functions include-

  • Play music set to a SoundTouch preset.
  • Play content in a specific room.
  • Play the same music on all SoundTouch devices (everywhere).
  • Find out what's playing.
  • Play/pause/resume and skip tracks.
  • Adjust volume.
  • Turn on/off.

AC Power: The SoundTouch 10 wireless speaker operates off of standard household current using the supplied 5' AC power cord.

Product reviews from the Crutchfield Labs

Presets are a game changer for me.

Written by Chris, Advisor, on 10/12/2015 1:09:00 PM

After hearing this little speaker in a recent training I knew I'd have to own one. I've enjoyed a Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth®. speaker II that I'd borrowed from work for quite a while but I recently had to bring back. That speaker sounded much larger than it was and the Bose® SoundTouch® 10 wireless music system is more of the same. For its size, it can fill my dining room and kitchen area with ease!

My favorite thing about the SoundTouch® 10 system is that it has six preset buttons on the speaker as well as on the remote. I do use a smartphone a lot, but I'm glad I do not have to get my phone out and open an app every time I want to listen. I walk up to the speaker, push one button, and almost instantaneously hear my music. I'm really surprised at how fast it begins.

The presets are a differentiator for Bose® and I think most users would agree that it's such a simple, but genius, feature for a network speaker.

9 questions already asked

Special software which you download for free and same for smart phone and tablet. No sound card required. [ Charles  May 24, 2017 ]
If you can download the soundtouch app to your Asus it will work. I use it with my phone and tablet. [ George  May 24, 2017 ]
With good wifi signal and enough units to cover the area the system will work. [ Charles  Mar 13, 2017 ]
You may adjust the bass through the Sountouch software. [ Charles  May 24, 2017 ]
You can only adjust the bass from the app on your phone. Go to settings and following instructions. Replacement remotes are available at Bose but it won't help with the bass problem. [ George  Jan 02, 2017 ]
By position of the speaker, distance from the back port. Down load app to your smartphone or tablet. I never use the remote. [ Charles  Jan 02, 2017 ]
Yes, I use it. [ Charles  Nov 29, 2016 ]
Yes it does. I use it daily for a station I otherwise can't get through conventional means! [ Neil  Nov 29, 2016 ]
Yes if you can get tunein on your phone you can play it through the Bose wi fi through the phone [ George  Nov 29, 2016 ]
No, the way the speaker is constructed it cannot be wall mounted. [ MARK  Mar 27, 2017 ]
It does not appear to be designed to wall mount. No bracket or screw holes in the back to hang it from. In addition, it has a open port in the back, which I assume you should not block against a wall. [ JIM  Mar 27, 2017 ]
It could be on a small shelf. The AC power cord projects from the back and there is no hanger on the rear of the speaker. [ Gregg  Mar 27, 2017 ]
Not easily. There is no slot for a mounting screw, and the power cord sticks straight out the back of the unit, so it will not lie flat against the wall. Also, the rear port needs to be an inch or two away from the wall for best bass response. [ Michael  Mar 27, 2017 ]
No, the Sound Touch speaker is only compatible with systems which stream or broadcast wireless. The Bose Wave IV Music System requires the Bose® Bluetooth® music adapter. [ Charles  May 18, 2016 ]
I have no clue. I don't own the Bose Wave Music System iV. [ Scott  May 17, 2016 ]
Yes, but may not be the best with limited vision. If she uses or has a large tablet it would be better with the free download controller which is easier to view. [ Charles  May 18, 2016 ]
This model does not have radio. However, you can play radio stations from your device but you would most likely need wifi to access those stations. Works great with blue tooth from ipad/iPhone etc. but obviously they must have the music downloaded onto them if you aren't accessing cloud services. Also, there is an auxiliary port on this speaker so it can be used with iPods or MP3 players with no internet. There is some initial (simple0 techy set-up but the presets would make it ideal for someone with limited vision. The sound is GREAT! [ Joseph  May 08, 2016 ]
It is just a speaker, not a radio. You do not have to use the wireless Bluetooth connection but can instead connect it to other devices with a simple single rca cable. [ Sharon  May 07, 2016 ]
I have this hooked up to wifi, but it is Bluetooth... I have played thru BT with my phone also...hope this helps!! [ Robert  May 07, 2016 ]
no this really requires both WiFi and a smartphone or computer [ Harry  May 07, 2016 ]
Yes with blue tooth devises [ PATRICK  May 07, 2016 ]
Yes you can bluetooth [ Brian  May 07, 2016 ]
This model has both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi built-in. Bluetooth range is generally around 30-feet but Wi-Fi range would be determined by the strength of your home's Wi-Fi network capabilities. As long as your streaming device is able to connect to the same wireless network as the Bose SoundTouch, you can stream from anywhere in your home. [ Larry  Nov 04, 2015 ]  Staff
