Top Customer Reviews
Setup : some have complained about the setup being hard - I did all of mine from an Iphone 6 and each one was simple. For wireless you need to hold the 2 and volume down for 5 seconds to enable the wireless setup on the unit. The LCD on the 20 and 30 will also reflect this which is handy. Once it is in setup mode you will connect to it via your wifi setting on your phone - then launch the Bose app and setup the device. Pretty simple to me and took just a minute. If you hardwire the speaker then you need to turn your wifi on and connect to your home wifi and then launch the Bose app to setup. Either way it was quick and easy.
Now for the real shining star as to why I bought these. My wife is not technically inclined - so simplicity is a huge bonus in any electronic setup for her. After a few weeks of ownership I can tell you that it was a success. Being able to hit a single button and have her music start is awesome to her. The remotes are easy to use and you can use any remote with any unit so that is nice. She is very happy and now listens to music all the time. I find it pretty nice too that you can have 6 presets so she has a few and I do as well making it real easy to just pop on my music in my room while she's listening to hers upstairs.
As far as connecting to your music there are multiple ways. You can pair each speaker via bluetooth if you want to listen directly from your phone or such. It works fine when I tried it - no dropouts though I didn't test it long. Mine are all setup on the network and I will say they have been solid. Two are wired in and the other is wireless and I have had maybe two dropouts over many hours of playing on the wireless ones. The wired ones play solidly of course. And the dropout was about a second or two before it continued on so no big deal in my book - I am probably a bit far away and getting low signal where I have it placed. My library is on a WD my cloud drive I bought for this setup and it works perfectly. All my files are in flac format and no issues there either. I can't speak for using it with itunes or windows media player but if you get a my cloud for about 150 it will certainly make it simple.
A couple final notes. Being able to play your music on all devices at the same time requires the use of the app as far as I can tell. The process to link them all is simple but it would be nice if there was a way to do it from the remote - maybe I haven't found out how yet but I don't think it is possible. Also, my home internet connection went down once and for some reason it seemed to make the app hiccup when I launched it - I tried it a few times - it would work but only after sitting for a bit and sometimes throwing me a message about my wifi. I think that it might try to send out some data and have to timeout before continuing but I don't know and it wasn't a big enough deal for me to investigate.
That's everything I can think of regarding these units so I hope that helps.
Bottom line - If you decide to buy I think you will enjoy them but I recommend to stick with the model 20 for best value.
Once we got it home and hooked up, we were hooked. It had comparable, if not better sound for the price - but was worlds better in terms of convenience. The presets make this the home product to buy in my opinion. There is nothing simpler in the world of in home music than pressing the one touch preset and having your music playing instantly. And as if it wasn't easier enough to tap the speaker, it even came with a small remote with the presets and volume controls. (And our other speakers came with the same remote, which can work on any of the speakers, which is nice.) No need to hunt down a charged smartphone, unlock, search for/open app. Of course, for the times when the smartphone is the easiest way to access the music controls, there is the app, which I've found to be a great experience (simple interface, yet very customizable). We have internet radio stations (Pandora, etc.) programmed to the presets as well as our WD My Cloud drive, which contains our audio library. We can always select whatever specific songs, artists, genres, etc. that we want from the app, and when we're ready for a change in presets (the primary way we use the SoundTouch players), it is as simple as changing the radio presets in a car...no, simpler.
This has also proven to be a great purchase for the younger ones in our family (3 boys 4 yrs. and under). Our 2 and 4 year olds know that numbers 4-5 are their kids' music stations, and they love being able to turn the music on all by themselves. (In the mornings when they head downstairs for playtime, the first thing they like to do is tap-on their music.)
We love the pairing functionality of the SoundTouch systems as well. We love having the same music playing throughout our home, and it couldn't be simpler than the way it is set up with the Bose. You can easily pair speakers to play together or un-pair them to play different music on each speaker. Furthermore, we use the auxiliary ports to hook up to our televisions (one upstairs and one downstairs) for extra sound (our televisions have headphone jack output and we use a headphone jack splitter downstairs to use alongside our soundbar, since we haven't purchased the more expensive Bose one). This was another selling point for us over the Sonos that we tried out. The smaller Sonos speakers do not have headphone output, which limits its usefulness as an auxiliary speaker, which the SoundTouch 10 can do.
After half a year of daily usage, the only complaint I would have is that Bose does not seem to be in a big hurry to add more music services. Quite honestly, this isn't a big deal for us, since Pandora, internet radio stations (including local ones), and our network library (WD My Cloud) give us more than enough music. However, I had been using Apple Music when I purchased the Bose speakers, and the lack of integration was instrumental in my dropping the service when my free trial of Apple Music had expired (the Sonos wasn't compatible either).
That really is the only complaint. The only times the speakers did not play correctly, it was due to router issues, which had affected all of our wireless devices. While I would happily take a 7th preset option, I would probably have a harder time remembering which presets were which (something that has never been an issue with the 6 offered). Perhaps the only request I would make to Bose is to keep working to grow and expand this product, because it's one of the best pieces of technology I have purchased, and it has truly impacted our home in many wonderful ways! (Bring on the outdoor pairing speakers, maybe smaller ones for a bathroom, and continue expanding the music service options!)
If you're trying to decide between the Bose and the Sonos systems, I would counsel you to consider the daily usefulness of the Bose system's presets and physical remote compared to the lack of any non-phone controls with the Sonos. If you are trying to decide between just a bluetooth speaker and the SoundTouch, I would enthusiastically implore you to try out an internet connected radio. It truly is the ideal in-home music system.
Originally I purchased the SoundTouch 10, but after using that I wanted more and decided to get the 20 as well. Now I'm looking at getting the 30 and having my entire home completely filled with audio of my choosing. Also, the preset buttons are great! We have set stations for each one and it allows my wife to just hit a button and have music without ever having to grab the phone.
No complaints at all...You get what you pay for! Our neighbor has the Sonos system and is constantly jealous of our Bose system. Highly recommended!
(The only thing I use the SoundTouch 10 for is some music right in front of me in a large room where I also have a SoundTouch 30.)
