Bose SoundTouch 20 Series III review

 

A solid showing, but sound quality doesn't quite match the competition...

Good detail and dynamics ; Intuitive app ; Improved file compatibility ; Multi-room potential ; Impressive scale

No hi-res support ; Needs more services ; Overbearing bass

Bose is heading in the right direction with the latest SoundTouch 20, but sound quality still needs improving

Bose SoundTouch 20 Series III review

  (Rating Hidden)

There's no doubt that Bose has a good reputation for wireless speakers. But previous models from the Bose SoundTouch series haven't been without their issues. Now at their third attempt, we fully expect that Bose will have fine-tuned their multiroom...

Disaster and a let down for Bose

 

I bought this product 11 January 2018. Out of the box very impressed. Set up as instructed. First blast of sound reasonably good. Radio station lasted about 5 minutes before giving up. Tried another station and got nothing every time. My internet is...

Great Sound, Terrible Software Support

 

I've had a Bose Cinema system for years and it was been fantastic. I bought two of the SoundTouch 20s and a SoundTouch 10. It was relatively easy to set them up and the synchronized sound as you walk from room to room is pretty cool (not easy with...

Disappointed

 

I got this as a Christmas gift from my wife and son about w and a half years ago. The sound is very good, very rich tones and excellent bass but I've had so many issues with it as well. My iPad would keep losing connection to the speaker and previously...

Great sound, shame about the aux latency

 

The quality of sound from the SoundTouch 20 is remarkable and it's compatability is much better than the sonos. However the major snag with this product is the latency when using something through the auxiliary input. This comes as a huge issue which...

Consumer review (johnlewis.com)

Ran for 5 minutes then switched itself off

 

I have no doubt this is a very good speaker, but it would not connect with the two Bose speakers, I already had. John Lewis sent two of their staff to set it up, they failed, (it was my fault, it was something I had done ?) it has been returned. I...

Sound quality you expect from Bose

 

We've owned this speaker now for about 4 months. It's totally awesome! The sound quality is just so clear and crisp with wonderfully deep bass. Myself and my wife use the speaker through our wifi and use Spotify. We both listen to different types of...
