Notice

The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.


Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.


Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.


Regards,
Bose Customer Service Team

Which Soundtouch from the new series equals the Soundtouch 20

Hello I have Soundtouch 20 and thinking to switch to Soundtouch 300 or Soundtouch 500

 

But I want to make sure before buying them

 

Which Soundtouch equals the SoundTouch 20 in the voice? Soundtouch 300 or Soundtouch 500

 

Cause i'm using the Soundtouch 20 for the living room and I need same sound and voice be covered by the new one?

Re: Which Soundtouch from the new series equals the Soundtouch 20

Bose doesn’t make a Soundtouch 300 or 500, you’re conflating the Bose HOME and SOUNDTOUCH product lines. 

It looks like the Bose Soundtouch line is now dead. No more 10,20 or 30 on the website despite software updates being released recently. 

The Bose Home 300/500 can not be played using the Soundtouch app and instead make use of the Bose connect app. I’m not confident at this moment that you can stream across these two product lines seamlessly.

 

If true, this would have the unfortunate affect of killing Bose whole home audio. There is a gap in their product line currently, where one doesn’t have a “semi-installed” speaker that can stream across an entire home. 

Personally, I’d like to keep (insert monopolistic wire tap service) away from my home audio experience and the Soundtouch app does that extremely well. I can also emulate owning a custom Bose DS/freespace setup by using a 10/20/30 or the soundlink adapter.  All in all, Soundtouch fans are waiting Bose; a final word here is important before I invest more money. 

At the least, I can build my own speakers, amplifier and leverage the soundlink adapter
