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

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...

Bose SoundSport In-Ear (updated review): Bose's sporty in-ear, now in new colors, takes the crown for comfort

 

The sweat-resistant version of Bose's popular in-ear headphone has come in a few different variations over the years. Here's our full review of the current model.

The Bose SoundSport In-Ear headphones are secure and comfortable as well as sweat-resistant, and their "open" design is appealing. They also offer pleasantly full bass and include an integrated remote and microphone and a nice carrying case.

They let sound in, so they're not good for noisier environments.

While the Bose SoundSport In-Ear may not be the best sounding in-ear headphone for the money, the design and comfort level are great, and it's ideal for people who want this sort of headphone style without the need to jam the tips into their ear canals.

Rubbish connectivity, great sound when it does con

 

Have had this for 6 months, constantly loses WiFi connection, then, when it is playing the app cannot find the speaker on network so can't control it. Very disappointing for a quality brand

Great Sound

 

I bought a soundtouch 20 and two soundtouch 10 speakers over a year ago ,they were not cheap ! The sound quality when the system works correctly (which is not often) is good ! The problem is the speakers are VERY POOR at staying connected to your home...

Instructions - Rubbish

 

Disappointing. Functionally probably O.K. with an expert. There might as well be no instructions - incomprehensible. I have yet to set it up! Avoid.

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...
