The freedom of AirPlay, the performance of Bose

The SoundLink Air system brings your music to life via AirPlay and your home wireless network. Enjoy all your content from your favorite Apple devices in clear, room-filling sound—in any room in the house.

Bose SoundLink Air Lifelike Sound
This compact, one-piece, wireless speaker system delivers full, lifelike sound.

Clear, full-range sound

This compact system delivers acoustic performance similar to that of the Bose SoundDock digital music systems, using Bose waveguide speaker technology. You'll hear the rich, detailed sound you'd expect from a much larger speaker. Just plug it in, add it to your home wireless network, and you have a go-to speaker for playing your favorite streaming content.

Easy to use

Instead of physically docking your device, you connect wirelessly via AirPlay to stream music from your compatible Apple device or a computer running iTunes. And you have full use of your Apple device as you listen.

Setup is easy. Just plug in the system, connect it to a computer with the included USB cable and go to the setup site. The site walks you through the steps to configure your system. Once you're up and running, the system communicates with your devices wirelessly over your home network, and you can move it anywhere you want to listen.

Versatility in play

Control SoundLink Air with your Apple device
You can use your Apple device or computer to control the system remotely.

The system also features an auxiliary input so you can connect and play music from other devices that don't utilize AirPlay. And an optional rechargeable battery turns the system into a portable speaker that you can carry easily from room to room with its built-in handle.

Control the system with your device or with the included remote. You can also adjust the volume with buttons on the system.

Multi-room music

Additional SoundLink Air systems in multiple rooms networked to your computer can stream music throughout your home. You'll never miss a beat as you move from one place to another.

Additional Features

  • LED interface lets you see which source is selected, network connection status and mute option
  • Convenient power supply features manageable cord, allowing for easy storage. Interchangeable prongs eliminate the need for bulky converters during international travel
  • Bose SoundLink Air at home
    Remote controls system power and volume and iPhone or iPod playlist navigation.
  • Optional rechargeable battery lets you play the system, unplugged, in any room

Customer Reviews

The sound quality is very, very good.
Greg Clark
Apparently it's a common problem for this model and one that can only be fixed by my sending it back to Bose for service.

I bought the Bose SoundLink Air system last weekend on a whim. It was one of those, "Hmm it would be really nice if I had a..." moments.

I went to Bose, found this system and bought it from Amazon (free shipping). I didn't look at any reviews because at the time of writing, there weren't any ANYWHERE. Try googling, you'll see what I mean. All you'll find are press releases.

So here is my review:

SETUP: 4 stars
There are different methods. The instructions out of the box require a computer to connect the system to your wifi network (AirPlay needs wifi). There are two other methods to hook up the Bose system to your wifi but to find them, you need to look at the owner's manual online.

Because I didn't have a computer handy, the alternative method I used required me to create an Ad-hoc wireless network on the Bose system, connect my iPhone to the Bose SoundLink Air wireless network, navigate to the Bose wireless network setup page with my iPhone, and enter in my home's wireless network info.

This might seem like a lot, but it's really fast. I was up and running in less than 5 minutes from the moment I pulled the system out of the box.

EASE OF USE: 5 Stars
As soon as you configure the wifi on the system, your iDevices (iPad, iPhone, iTouch, etc) will see the Bose SoundLink Air immediately.

To listen to music, simply start playing the music you want on any of your iDevices and hit the AirPlay button. Done.

PERFORMANCE: 5 Stars
My. Mind. Is. Blown.
Bose re-engineered this system since the last SoundLink Wireless system was released. This is the first Bose SoundLink system to support AirPlay (no Bluetooth) and it sounds phenomenal!! Amazing high, mids, and lows.

I wanted to check the state of some new Airplay speakers, so I decided to compare a few of them, namely the:
- Bose SoundLink Air
- Pioneer A4 XW-SMA4-K
- Pioneer A3 XW-SMA3-K
- Logitech Wireless Boombox

Right off the bat, you can notice that the Logitech unit is in a different category. It's much less expensive (1/3 the price) and uses bluetooth rather than Wi-fi. However since it received great reviews online, I decided to compare it as well. I'm glad I did (read on!).

First of all, let's talk about what's common here.
When using a bluetooth speaker (the Logitech here is the only one), you get instantaneous response when you change track, change the volume, press play or stop: that's the beauty of using bluetooth. Also, apparently bluetooth has less bandwidth than wi-fi, so it compresses the music before sending it to the speaker. However in real usage, I could never tell the difference. If you are a real music expert and have an very good musical ear, maybe you can hear it but I certainly could not. All the music I played sounded great whether I played it on the bluetooth Logitech or on the other Airplay speakers.

Using Airplay, you will encounter a delay when you try to control the music. It's around 1 to 2 seconds before any action on your iPod/iPhone will take effect on the speaker (except for Stop and volume changes which are almost instantaneous but not quite). This delay will also occur when you skip songs (something I hate) however it does not occur if your let your playlist continue and your iPod is simply going on from one song to the next. This means if you are throwing a party and try to skip a tune, you will get silence for 2 seconds.

My intention is to stream music to both upstairs and downstairs of my home wirelessly. I researched a lot, and zeroed in on two - Bose Soundlink Air and Sonos. I went to a store to hear the Sonos - even though Sonos seems to have an upper hand in functionality, I was not impressed with the sound quality at all. One thing that attracted me to Sonos was the ability to stream different music to different speakers from the same device, but that was not as important as the sound quality.

Bose recently released their Soundlink Air device - while I was researching, and I waited for a week to get at least 3 reviews before I decided to take a chance and buy it, mainly due to Bose's reputation of delivering excellent sound quality.

I received the speaker via UPS on time. It took me about 3 minutes to connect it to my WiFi - the instructions ask you to connect to a computer using USB to configure the WiFi which I did. Now I stream music from my iPhone, iPad or iTunes on any of my computers to this device. The sound quality is very good, though not as good as B&W (See below). It is very loud, has a great bass, the voice is very distinct, and at 1/3rd the volume, it is loud enough for my kids to wake up screaming from their bed (for the loud alarm call :)

I also have an Apple TV connected to my Plasma TV, and from my computer's iTunes, I select the "Multiple Speakers" option to send to both the Bose and Apple TV so I can listen to music in different rooms. I plan on buying a second Bose speaker after more tests, so I don't have to burn the life of my plasma TV just to listen good music.

The only problem I noticed was, once in a while, the connection drops. I believe this is because of my WiFi because at the same time, my AppleTV device also doesn't play the music.
