Chances are, all your favorite music is on your smartphone or just a few clicks away on the Internet.
Realizing this, Bose has introduced its SoundTouch wireless speaker system with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity that allows users to stream online music from their smartphones or the Internet throughout their homes.
To drive the point of enjoying music throughout your home, Bose has introduced the new SoundTouch 10, the smallest speaker of the group. However, what the SoundTouch 10 lacks in physical size, it more than makes up for with crisp, size-defying sound.
Users can begin with the SoundTouch 10 and add bigger units, such as the SoundTouch 20 Series III and the SoundTouch 30 Series III — which are being adapted to have Wi-Fi capability — as they go on. The SoundTouch 10 will cost $199.95, with the larger SoundTouch 20 Series III running $349.95 and the SoundTouch 30 Series III $499.95.
Initially connecting from your smartphone to a SoundTouch speaker via Bluetooth or the SoundTouch mobile app, music streams from the device right to the wireless speaker, delivering that clear sound for which Bose is known. Essentially, your smartphone becomes your remote control, which is pretty convenient.
With a few SoundTouch speakers in the home, Wi-Fi can be used to have them connect with each other and play the same music in different rooms throughout the household ... or different music in different rooms throughout the home.
According to reports, Spotify will be available on the SoundTouch wireless speaker system in early 2016. That would allow playlists worth of music to go directly from your smartphone to Bose's high-powered speakers. The speaker system also allows users to save some of their favorite music.
Sounds like a good deal all around.
