Comments about Bose SoundTouch 300 Sound Bar:
First of all I was a bit nervous to set this up thinking it was going to be a bit difficult. To my surprise it was one of the easiest things I have ever done. I live in a apartment and not to big of a living room, so I started with the headset which was super fun to do, after that I was set and ready to go, it basically did everything itself, and the sound was so AWESOME!!! I download the app to my kindle fire and with a press of the button on the remote it started playing my favorite music!! I would recommend this to anyone who likes music and watch movies with great sound. I have also asked my neighbors if they can hear it when I turned the sound up and they have all said no, but I hear it perfectly. Love this soundbar very much!!

Great Great Great Soundbar...I love the sound of the music playing thru it..It's really clear and it doesn't have to be turned all the way up to hear it in another room...I wanted to try out the soundbar because I am a stay at home mom, and love being able to listen to music while I clean without being tied down by wires...I have this 4 stars only because I couldn't for the life of me get it connected to my Tv...other than that everything worked great
Exceptional Product - Highly Recommended
I have been building my dream home theater system and that is the primary reason I wanted to experience the BOSE SoundTouch 300 soundbar. I recently purchased a new 55" ROKU television and was now looking to begin adding additional items to continue building my dream home theater system. I have been using various Bose products for approximately 35 years - so I felt that if it was from Bose it would meet all my expectations - and it did. However, I researched various soundbars in order to reach an informed-decision of which soundbar I felt would best fit my personal requirements and lifestyle - both current and future. Working with a certain budget in mind, the two comparably-priced, high-quality soundbars I liked best were the Bose SoundTouch 300 and the Sonos PLAYBAR. However, the Bose SoundTouch 300, in my opinion, takes top honors because it is jam-packed with just about every current feature and technology a person could possibly desire - plus designed to grow with you on into the future. The Sonos lacks 4K video compatibility, lacks Bluetooth connectivity, lacks HDMI inputs/outputs, lacks an Ethernet port, lacks USB connectivity, etc. The Bose, on the other hand, is not lacking in any way - and the sound is unparalleled. I was a bit concerned when I looked at the first page of the quick-start guide and saw that it said to place the soundbar at least 1-3 feet away from other wireless equipment. That was a concern for me because my new 55" ROKU television is connected via Wi-Fi to my Internet router. However, I experienced no problems upon placement of the soundbar a mere six inches away from my television. I am very satisfied with the features of the Bose SoundTouch 300 soundbar. It is built with every imaginable feature and technology a person could want, plus includes a universal remote that makes switching between various sources a breeze. I love that the soundbar includes both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, plus offers HDMI inputs/outputs. I really love how easy it is to calibrate the soundbar to your room - you simply put on the ADAPTiQ headphones and the soundbar speaks to you as it fine-tunes the system's sound to your room. One moment I might be using the soundbar for my television and the next moment I'm using the soundbar to listen to streaming music. All done easily with the touch of a button with the included remote. Something I really love about Bose is that they make sophisticated products, but you don't have to be a professional to use their products. My only complaint is minor in nature - included in the box is a quick-start guide that I do not feel is adequate for setup of an elaborate, highly-sophisticated home theater system. However, using the online user manual, setup then becomes quick and easy. I have several friends who are either high-end audio/video enthusiasts, professional sound engineers and/or recording artists - individuals I know who have high-expectations. I am so impressed with this soundbar that I have already recommended this to many of these friends.
OK so I got this Bose sound touch thinking ok what can this tiny bar do for sound? Like I would have to have the subwoofers in order for it to sound decent, but actually I'm quite surprised with the sound! Its so crisp and clear! So loud but not ugly sounding so discreet as well! So you won't have this huge bulky bar in the way, its compact; it was so easy to setup and "install" I am extremely happy with how great this has made our movie nights! So loud and nice sounding !
I am really amazed at the quality of sound that the Bose SoundTouch 300 provides alone without any additional speakers. I have a very large living room that I calibrated it to and it not only sounds amazing in there but through the whole house with the volume not turned up completely. I can't honestly tell you just how loud it will go because while turning it up it was so loud that i couldn't stand it anymore and started turning it back down. But even that loud the sound was crystal clear. The thing i have found the most amazing about it is that my elderly father who has a very hard time hearing loves to listen to music. All the other speakers we have that he listens to if we turn them loud he can hear the words that are being sang as long as he is sitting close to the speakers. The sound quality with this soundbar he is being able to hear it no matter where he goes through out the house. I didn't think it was possible to find something to let him enjoy his music so thoroughly again. The only complaint i have had with it was the instructions that come with it in the box tells you very little and leave you confused on how to set it up but that was easy to fix by coming to the Bose website they have very detailed instructions on how to do everything here. I would recommend this product to anyone even to people with hearing problems.
The Best Sound Ever
Wow! Being a little hard to hear voices on tv when there is background noise on tv is very tough. I did not know how much of a show I missed because I could not hear. The voices are crisp. The sound is clear. I am so grateful for the Bose sound bar. The only con I have is it collects dust but no big deal. It hooks to tv very easy and simple. I am sold. I can not say enough positive about this speaker. I enjoy the tv again because everything is crisp and clear. I love the slim size of it.
Awesome features, surprising quality
By Juan Felipe
Let me start with how awesome the quality of Bose have reach levels beyond any of my expectations. I have acquire this speaker around a week and a half ago and I am surprised on how awesome the experience with it can be. Let me break down the review in some positive and improvements (or observations) for simplicity: Positive aspects: 1. Design. I was expecting a sound bar (like any other) to be functionally appropriate and to have the design oriented to the goal. The design however of this sound bar is frankly breath taking. It looks awesome and I enjoy to have it at home even when is off. 2. Crisp sound. The quality of the sound of this device is simply fantastic. Is crisp and clear, have awesome treble and a moderate amount of bass (for the soundbar ALONE) 3. The remote... I LOVE THAT REMOTE. It is a nice quality item with an easy configuration and the ability to control my TV, my Apple TV, even my Play Station!!! WELL DONE BOSE 4. I can hear Pandora an any other internet based radio... is that awesome or what? is FANTASTIC!!! sometimes I turn off the tv and just hear the awesome music without the need of any earphones or else. 5. Adaptation to the environment. I have placed this sound bar in 5 different places (I'm an engineer, I have to experiment) and with the audio configuration procedure (specified in the manual... ), it ADAPTS to each space awesomely, calibrating each position you usually have to watch tv or listen to music. Areas of improvement: 1. The bar itself is an awesome device, but without the subwoofer it loses a big amount of the power this device can give. Please don't take me wrong, the soundbar itself sounds amazing but I have another soundbar at home (that come with the subwoofer), and I can tell the need for the subwoofer to achieve total satisfaction. I believe that is a fairly awesome product that wont disappoint you... If you want total satisfaction, I suggest you to go also for the subwoofer... and if you have more budget, the complementary speakers will make your experience a dream.
Sound is Epic, Other Things are Not
The sound is incredible. Bravo. However, I have a few issues. Subwoofer doesn't always connect. I have to unplug it, then plug it back in again. (Yes, I moved it away from other electronics.) The lack of a volume display is not something I thought that I'd miss. But I do. A lot. Please put a volume number on the app. This unit should be capable of all the different settings that the other systems are (like the volume settings). And every setting should be available throug the app. The whole notion of having to memorize what the different combinations of flashing LEDs is a bit user unfriendly. But the sound is amazing. The metal and glass body is awesome.

Best soundbar ever
The bar by itself shines with a great spacious sound and a good bass after the calibration the sound is incredible for its size. My advice when calibrating the bar use the headset with the cable to the right as the photo and check that there are no large furniture very close to the bar or nearby walls can affect the sound and simulated surround effect and stereo separation. It took me a while to get it and I could correct it and now the sound is perfect in both music and movies this bar does an incredible job and immerses you in what you are listening with every detail in the whole range of frequencies a surprising low without using the unit Which are sold separately for bass. I recommend it 100% I am a great admirer the work that has done bose and dedicate so much research to its products which shine some more than others certainly but always looking for the best sound quality, I startedze buying a headphones soundtrue II I loved it so much that I was not stopped buying Every audio product that interests me Bose as my soundlink mini II or my 20 companion and now finally my first piece of my home theater Bose.

Room-filling sound in an elegant package!!
Let me start off my saying that I'm a fan of all things Bose. Every piece of audio equipment I own is Bose, and I find it hard to stray to anything else. This product is absolutely no exception. I'm coming from a Cinemate 1SR - which was, and still is one of the most fantastic sound bars I have ever listened to or owned. The SoundTouch 300 exceeds the performance of the 1SR, even without the need of an added Acoustimass module. There is deep, deep bass coming out of that tiny, slim sound bar. I hope I am able to get the wireless subwoofer to get the full experience one of these days soon. I don't yet have the wireless surrounds, but this does a wonderful job of throwing sound all over the room, even without them. Simply put, this one single piece of the puzzle will amaze you. The vocals are so crystal clear, and the music is so amazingly present, that it genuinely feels as if you're sitting in a full sized movie theater. Acoustic guitars sound so bright and open that you can hear the contact of the pick on the strings. Drums have a dynamic, resonating sound that can't be described, it has to be experienced to be believed. Overall, this product is a HUGE win. The only down side is that it was a bit time consuming to get up and running on my WiFi, but once I got the app installed on my iPad, it was a breeze. I would highly, highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for home theater sound in a sophisticated, elegant package, without having to wire everything all over your living room. A++
