Our Verdict

The SoundTouch 300 is a beautifully made, precise sounding soundbar. But only those with an HDMI ARC-equipped TV should apply.

For

  • Wide, articulate sonic presentation
  • Gorgeous design and build quality
  • 4K pass-through with HDCP 2.2
  • Compatible with other multiroom components

Against

  • Potentially frustrating set up
  • Doesn’t come with a subwoofer
  • Dialogue can sound a little sharp

When the Bose SoundTouch came out in 2016, the world was a very different place. Sure, Sonos had developed its spectacular Sonos Playbar and Samsung began its path to aural dominance with the Samsung HW-MS650 - but, by and large, the soundbar space was owned by Bose.

These days, however, Bose isn't the driving force in soundbars that it once was and while that's disappointing in some respects, at least it went out on a high note: Boasting high-end design, this slim soundbar looks superb, and sounds above average. It's limited by a single HDMI-out but the SoundTouch 300 does enough to justify its position as a premium soundbar offering, with a broad, dynamic and articulate performance with both music and movies.  

...it also doesn't hurt that you can pick up the SoundTouch 300 these days for around $200/£200 less than when it first came out.  

Design

Build quality is commensurate with the price. Bose’s flagship bar sports a tempered black glass top plate (which admittedly is a bit of a fingerprint magnet) complemented by a wraparound aluminium grille. 

It's also worth mentioning that, as this isn’t a 2.1 package, there’s no subwoofer supplied, although Bose will sell you a wireless Acoustimas sub for an additional $700/£600. Turn it upside down and the base of the bar has two non-slip rubber pads. 

Connections, recessed at the back, comprise an HDMI with ARC (Audio Return Channel), plus HDMI loop-through, optical digital audio input, Ethernet, Acoustimas jack, Adaptiq microphone input and micro USB connection. HDMIs are v2.0 and support 4K HDCP 2.2 sources, such as 4K or the . There’s not much room to maneuver back there though and things do get a little fiddly when you try and lace the thing up. 

The ST300 comes with a large, generic Bose remote, complicated by buttons for features not on the ST300 at all (DVR, Channel +/-).

Setup

Key to the initial setup is the Acoustiq room calibration system, which tunes the output to your listening room. It's similar to the Audyssey and YPAO systems seen on AV receivers. However, while they tend to come with small standalone microphones which awkwardly need to be positioned at listening height (Denon and Marantz helpfully include a cardboard tripod with their receivers), the Bose mic is built into a plastic headband. This rather brilliantly allows the ST300 to measure at exactly the right listening height. 

Inevitably, there’s also a SoundTouch app (available for iOS and Android). This is designed for music streaming (services and NAS) from a smartphone, rather than full system control. It does offer presets, however, which can be assigned to different sources.

Don’t think you have to download the app, though. It’s easy enough to wirelessly stream over Bluetooth (there’s quick touch NFC for those with compatible smartphones) or use Spotify Connect. 

That said, connecting the ST300 via HDMI over ARC is the recommended way to use the bar. The SoundTouch will seamlessly relay whatever audio is being output from the TV, while that HDMI loopthrough accommodates another source not directly connected to the TV (just select the HDMI ARC input to view).  

Things get rather more convoluted if you opt for an optical audio input instead (if your TV does not support ARC). We tried setting the ST300 up using just such a TV and could get nothing out of the ST300 at all. We’ve set up numerous soundbars and soundbases this way, but the Bose was having none of it. After several hours of getting perplexed and vexed we gave up. Frankly, if your TV doesn’t support HDMI with ARC, you’re better off looking elsewhere. 

Performance

Get there in the end, though, and performance is sweet; there’s an awful lot to like about the ST300. It does an excellent job with dialogue, keeping centre-placed vocals crisp and clear. On the flip side of that, some content dialogue can sound a little sharp, but at least there’s no trace of sibilance. 

While the soundbar doesn’t create any faux surround, it does paint an extremely wide and atmospheric soundscape. This proves particularly effective with live sports – coverage of Anthony Joshua’s heavyweight title defense really did place me in the Manchester Arena. 

This immersive presentation works well on movies, too. When Watney drives across the Martian surface listening to Donna Summer's Hot Stuff (The Martian), there's just the right amount of club ambience in his futuristic dune buggy. 

 That said, dispersion is tuned for the horizontal plane. The ST300 doesn’t image (sonically) as high as it does wide. For the best integration, try and ensure the soundbar sits close to the screen – Bose sells an optional wall-mount, if required. 

If you do want a full surround sound system, the ST300 can be partnered with the brand’s Virtually Invisible (i.e. small at 10cm) 300 surround speakers (priced at £250 a pair).  The system is also compatible with the Bose SoundTouch wireless multiroom system which includes smaller Bluetooth speakers. 

One area where soundbars typically tend to lose out to multiple enclosure sound systems is unpicking complicated soundtracks. But the ST300 fares well in this regard. 

During The First Order Stormtrooper raid which opens Star Wars The Force Awakens, the clumping landers and resulting firefight finds room to breathe amid John William's symphonic score. Strings and brass sit back and away from the action. 

While the SoundTouch doesn’t do deep bass, we never really felt the absence of a sub-woofer. Poe Dameron's X-Wing is disabled with a satisfyingly visceral ka-blam. 

Musically, the ST300 holds its own. The Hans Zimmer/Junkie XL Wonder Woman Theme (from the Batman Vs Superman soundtrack) has a deep, triumphant riff that’s delivered with gusto. 

On the debit side, there’s no display beyond some mode LEDs, so you really have no idea where you are in terms of volume or modes.

We liked

Boasting high-end design, this slim soundbar looks superb, and sounds above average. At 97.9cm wide, it’s best partnered with larger screen sizes (50-inch+) and this width also has the benefit of creating a convincing stereo spread. 

Plus, 4K HDMI support means you’ll have no problems connecting next-gen AV components and should theoretically give the SoundTouch a long lifespan.

We disliked

If you’re not the owner of a TV with HDMI ARC support, just don’t bother. And with only one HDMI loopthrough input, there’s not much room for system expansion either. The ST300 doesn’t do deep bass, and that optional sub is a costly investment.

Final verdict

If you’ve already bought into Bose’s SoundTouch multiroom system, and have an HDMI ARC-enabled TV, then the SoundTouch 300 would seem a no brainer. It’s an impressive performer, capable of wide, detailed audio (although those hoping for gut-rumbling LFE will be disappointed). There are caveats regarding usability and price, but overall it warrants a cautious two thumbs up.

Best Bose speakers 2021: portable, multi-room, wireless

Best Bose speakers Buying Guide: Welcome to What Hi-Fi?'s round-up of the best Bose speakers you can buy in 2021.

The best Bose speakers are serious pound-for-pound performers. You get a premium build quality, intuitive controls and some bold, expressive audio. Even the small ones tend to impress.

In the past, we've criticised Bose's lack of support for hi-res audio files, but the latest models now support the likes of FLAC and WAV. Some models even support Amazon Alexa voice commands and music services like Spotify and Deezer too.

If you're looking to create a wireless multi-room system, the SoundTouch range is Bose's answer to a Sonos set-up. It's comprised of three speaker sizes – 10, 20 and 30 – that can be linked together to create room-filling sound. 

The Bose speaker range covers a range of prices at the more affordable end of the market but, generally, the more you spend, the more powerful and dynamic the sound. 

1. Bose SoundLink Revolve

Splashproof Bluetooth speaker with 360-degree sound.

Specifications

Wireless: Bluetooth

Battery life: 12 hours

Connections: 3.5mm headphone jack, Micro USB

Dimensions (HWD): 152 x 82 x 82mm

Weight: 0.66kg

Reasons to buy

+Omnidirectional delivery+Solid, punchy sound+Portable and feature-packed

Reasons to avoid

-Rivals offer more detail-Not especially rugged-Pricey

This multi-talented speaker gave us goosebumps with its bright, bold dynamic sound and refined performance. IPX4 water-resistant, it boasts a superb 12-hour battery, making it ideal an outdoor speaker. 

Bose has managed to extract huge performance from its cylindrical design, which pumps out 360-degree sound in an effort to eliminate sweet spots. The clever design even includes a pressure trap to reduce distortion.

It comes with a raft of features, including a dedicated button that allows you to tap into your phone's voice assistant (even if your phone is in another room). If you're looking for the best portable Bose speaker, grab one of these.

2. Bose SoundTouch 10

Affordable multi-room starter speaker.

Specifications

Wireless: Bluetooth, Wi-Fi

Battery life: Mains only

Connections: 3.5mm aux input

Dimensions (HWD): 21.2 x 14.1 x 8.7cm

Weight: 1.87kg

Reasons to buy

+Smart, compact design+Big, clear sound+Abundance of features+Multi-room

Reasons to avoid

-Slightly coarse treble-Midrange hardens up at high volume-App lacks some features

This might be the smallest and most affordable speaker in Bose's multi-room range, but we think it's also the best. Considering that it's the size of a carton of juice, the detailed, spacious sound - underpinned by deep, rich bass - is pretty darn impressive.

Bose has done a decent job of simplifying its user interface, so grouping this speaker with others in the SoundTouch collection is a cinch. There's support for Spotify Connect and Deezer, plus you can stream FLAC files from your favourite device. 

Fan of Tidal? Unfortunately that's not supported. If that's not a deal-breaker, the SoundTouch 10 is an is an excellent standalone speaker that can be spun out into a multi-room system.

3. Bose SoundLink Mini II

Palm-sized Bluetooth speaker that wows with weighty bass.

Specifications

Wireless: Bluetooth

Battery life: 10hr

Connections: 3.5mm aux input, Micro-B USB

Dimensions (HWD): 5.1 x 18 x 5.8cm

Weight: 0.68kg

Reasons to buy

+Full-bodied sound+Weighty bass+Portable

Reasons to avoid

-Lows Lack precision and agility

This diminutive speaker is just 5.1cm high, but you'll get a shock when you pick it up: it feels more like concrete than aluminium. The advantage of the stout build is that it translates into hefty bass that belies the size of this tiny Bluetooth speaker. 

The sound is warm, natural and expressive – without slipping into boombox territory – and the design is sleek. Buttons are kept to a bare minimum: power, volume and Bluetooth pairing (it remembers the last eight devices paired, making it a welcome guests at playlist parties).

The one area where this speaker doesn't quite hit the mark is the bass, which could be tighter. That said, this impressive, picnic-friendly speaker is plenty loud enough for a bedside table or a dinner party.

4. Bose SoundTouch 30 series III

The most powerful SoundTouch multi-room speaker.

Specifications

Wireless: Bluetooth, Wi-Fi

Battery life: Mains power only

Connections: 3.5mm aux input

Dimensions (HWD): 24.6 x 43.5 x 18cm

Weight: 8.4kg

Reasons to buy

+Powerful, spacious presentation+Good sense of timing+Decent low-end authority

Reasons to avoid

-Coarse treble -Hardness at high volume-Control app is slight disappointment 

The 'big daddy' of the SoundTouch speakers is undeniably chunky, but impresses with it's dynamic sonic ability. Bass is punchy and Bose's 'Waveguide' technology does a great job optimising the performance of the drivers, creating a big, room-filling sound. 

It's designed to be used as part of a Bose multi-room system, so pairing is simple and intuitive, and there's plenty of streaming support including Spotify Connect and Amazon Music. Bose has also added support for Amazon Alexa voice commands.

Compared to a Sonos system, you might find Bose's control app a bit fiddly but this is a well-equipped and accomplished wireless speaker.

5. Bose SoundTouch 20 Series III

Solid, mid-sized multi-room speaker.

Specifications

Wireless: Bluetooth, Wi-Fi

Battery life: Mains power only

Connections: 3.5mm aux input

Dimensions (HWD): 18.8 x 31.5 x 10.4cm

Weight: 3.2kg

Reasons to buy

+Good detail and dynamics+Intuitive app+Multi-room potential+Impressive scale

Reasons to avoid

-No hi-res support-Needs more services-Overbearing bass

Pitched between the smaller SoundTouch 10, and bigger SoundTouch 30, this compact offering delivers solid, insightful midrange performance. It's not shy when it comes to bass, either. Great if you're throwing a wild house party; perhaps not great if you're casually listening to Simon & Garfunkel. 

Like it's two cousins, the SoundTouch 20 series III is compatible with a decent range of streaming services including Spotify Connect, Deezer and Amazon Music. Controls are simple, with six presets offering convenient, one-touch access to your favourite music. 

There are better standalone Bluetooth speakers, but if you have your heart set on a Bose multi-room system, the SoundTouch 20 represents good value for money.

6. Bose Home Speaker 300

Good sized smart speaker with big, weighty sound.

Specifications

Wireless: Bluetooth, Wi-Fi

Battery life: Mains only

Connections: Aux-in

Dimensions (HWD): 160 x 142 x 102mm

Weight: 0.9kg

Reasons to buy

+Big, weighty sound+Goes loud without hardening+Google Assistant and Alexa

Reasons to avoid

-Poor detail-Timing is underwhelming-Lack of dynamic range-Cluttered and confused

Not the best for a classic, quality, hi-fi-type sound but the Bose Home Speaker 300 will certainly add some beef to your listening. Part of the wider Bose smart speaker family, it's voice-enabled through both Alexa and Google Assistant and can be used as a unit of a Bose multi-room set-up too. It also supports AirPlay 2.

Sound-wise, you're looking at a mono system here through a single, full-range driver which fires downwards into an acoustic deflector to spread sound 360 degrees from its ovular chassis. It definitely gives an even and impressively weighty performance that will please many but, if you're after something sonically more refined, this may not be the smart speaker for you.
