    I wish I hadn't bought it

    Posted
    girliedrummer

    I bought the Bose SoundTouch 10 speaker for myself at Christmas time in 2017 and it has been a big disappointment. It's the only Bose product I've ever been disappointed with. My house is 2 levels and I have a cheaper 808 Hex TL Bluetooth speaker upstairs that I use. I bought the SoundTouch 10 to leave downstairs and play outside, thinking it was an upgrade from the $70 speaker I currently use. My chief complaints are: 1 The speaker doesn't remain on even though it's plugged in and not running on a battery. So to use it, I have to first turn it on and then it goes through 5 or 6 minutes of the lights flashing across the front. I guess it's warming up? Haven't figured out what it's doing there. Sometimes I have to press the power button 2 or 3 times to get it on. When the lights eventually stop, I have to press the Bluetooth button, wait for the light to turn blue, then go to the settings on my iPod, find the Bluetooth devices and manually connect. The whole process takes at least 7 minutes, which is wasted time. It can often take a couple of minutes to actually connect. Conversely, my cheap Bluetooth speaker upstairs also turns off because it runs on rechargeable batteries. If I have it plugged in, it stays on but if it's on battery, it turns off after 10 minutes of inactivity. But once I turn it on, it immediately connects with my iPod and starts playing. The whole process is 5 seconds compared to several minutes to actually play music through the Bose speaker. 2. Every couple of weeks, it won't connect at all with the iPod. I'll spend 20 minutes or more trying to connect only to get a message that the speaker isn't on or isn't in range, though the iPod is right beside it. I have to forget the device from my iPod, turn off Bluetooth and then go through the pairing process again. My iPod is connected to 5 other Bluetooth devices but the SoundTouch is the only one that requires constant re-pairing to work. 3. I downloaded the SoundTouch app to my HP Pavilion app so I can play music or podcasts directly from iTunes on my laptop but the app doesn't work. When I launch it, I first get a message that the display driver has stopped working but recovered itself. Then the app screen just stays white, with a "not responding" message. I've even left it for a few hours, thinking maybe it just takes a very long time to launch but it never responds. I've tried to repair it using the repair function in the app executable file. I've uninstalled and re-installed. I've even trashed the download altogether and re-downloaded it. It has never worked. When I run the Windows troubleshooter, it says the app is not compatible with Windows 8, though the Bose site says it's compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10. So I paid $214 for a speaker than can only play music by Bluetooth from an iPod. I literally only get about an hour or 2 of play from it a month because I don't often want to invest the 7-10 minutes it takes to get it started. Instead, I get the speaker from upstairs and have music playing in seconds or I use the home theater system that's connected to my TV downstairs. It takes about the same amount of time to power it up and the TV, and then move through the settings to play audio I really regret buying this speaker because it doesn't do what I was looking to do. The only GOOD thing about my purchase is that I intended to buy all the SoundTouch speakers and put them all over the house, since they could be paired together. Then I could play music and hear it regardless of which room I was in. I'm SOOOO happy that I didn't invest several hundred dollars buying the SoundTouch 20 and 30 speakers before I thoroughly tested out this one. I could have bought 3 more of the Hex speakers for what I paid for this one.

    Bose's response to the SONOS PLAY: 1

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    First let me just say that this is one of the first Bose products that I've actually owned. Having not really used their brand I was curious upon hearing about their new line of SoundTouch devices. I came from a family that was mainly with SONOS from the beginning and while I can say that for the most part SONOS is probably one of the best sounding speaker brands you could ask for, I did have minor annoyances with it from time to time. I recently moved away from my home and into an apartment and although I did like how SONOS hooked up to my Wi-Fi I still would have a dedicated speaker for just bluetooth devices. So since the SONOS speakers stayed with my family I had to ask myself the question of whether or not I would purchase a SONOS for my apartment or if I would give a different speaker a shot. The biggest factors for me, was that like SONOS there was a dedicated Bose app that can be accessed from my phone and tablet (which I really like) and based on other reviews I had read I knew that the sound would be very similar as well. The price point was the exact same to the PLAY: 1 which was nice, but the biggest reason that intrigued me was that the SoundTouch devices also supported simple bluetooth pairing which was a feature that I really wished SONOS would have included from the beginning. WHAT IS IT?: The Bose SoundTouch 10, part of Bose's new line of speakers that in certain aspects could almost be comparable to the SONOS PLAY: 1. With the same price range, similar sizes, and fantastic balance of highs and lows. It would almost appear that Bose is trying to win over people and take over a portion of the SONOS market. WHY DOES IT MATTER?: The biggest thing that the SoundTouch series has going for it when comparing it to SONOS is that this also supports normal bluetooth pairing! WHAT'S IN THE BOX?: The SoundTouch 10 system, power cable, USB cable, and remote. DESIGN: While I do feel as though there are better designs out there, this is not bad by any means. It's a very simple, clean look, that overall doesn't really draw too much attention to itself. This can be a good thing if you were looking for a nice speaker that would blend in with everything else in the room and not really stand out. PERFORMANCE: I basically have been using this constantly for the past couple weeks and I am really impressed with the sound! I like that it can be programmed with six different presets (Spotify, iTunes, Pandora, iHeartRADIO, etc.) and because it has Wi-Fi it can seemlessly play your internet stations just by pressing the correct preset button that you set it to. FINAL SCORE: 5 / 5 I really can't complain. The SoundTouch 10 provides just the right amount of sound for my studio apartment. And when I move to a bigger place eventually, I plan to either get another 10 or maybe a 20 or 30 to expand throughout different rooms. The fact that this speaker line is also expandable too makes it even better since you can start with just one and add more of them as you go. If you're on the fence about it, just bite the bullet and dive in. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with what you hear.

    My wife loves me more after this

    Let me start by saying that I'm not a audiophile nor am I a Bose fanatic or any speaker brand fanatic for that matter. My quest for a wireless speaker started at a friends house when he demonstrated to me his wireless Sonos system. It was impressive! He had a multi-room multi-speaker system that sounded great and Sonos came highly recommended by him. I had to have something like that! I pulled up the specs for the Sonos Play:1, it was wifi only. No bluetooth and no auxillary input? Sorry Sonos, I don't want to purchase a device that is designed to be limited in capability. I wanted to be able to use my speaker as more than just a cloud music player and I had two main use cases to meet: playing music (DLNA, Pandora, Amazon music, internet radio, etc) and playing audio from my wife's computer while watching movies or Netflix. I spent quite some time looking up ways to make a Sonos work because when a friend recommends something to me, I don't want to scoff at it without first having a good reason to. I came across a couple of different options for playing computer audio to the Sonos, but they involved running a piece of software on a separate computer and then introducing an audio delay into the video which works in VLC, but was not an option for Netflix. I wanted to like the Sonos system, but I just couldn't see any way for me to make it work. I'm too much of a power user to be satisfied with just being able to play music over my speaker. So that brought me to the 'Sonos alternatives' search in Google. For the same price as the Sonos I get a speaker that supports wireless, bluetooth, and auxiliary. Mind = blown. I was pretty hesitant at first after seeing how new of a product it was and how little it supported vs the Sonos system, but it had the basics that I was looking for, specifically the auxiliary option and Amazon Music support, which is the only paid music subscription that my wife and I have. I did demo the SoundTouch 10 in store before purchasing it after reading the 'no highs no lows, must be a bose' on so many Bose reviews, but honestly it sounded great to me, much better than I expected for such a small speaker. So I walked out with the last white SoundTouch 10 (after paying for it, of course) that my local Bust Buy had a few days before Christmas. Christmas Eve came and my wife queued up Its a Wonderful Life with some family over and we were having a terrible time hearing it from her laptop speakers. After a few minutes, I convinced her to open her present from me early and boy was she excited! It took a few minutes to get the app installed, update the speaker, and then get it connected to her computer (via a handy 3.5mm spare auxiliary cable I had), but it worked wonders. One speaker sitting on the floor behind her laptop on we heard everything plain as day. In fact, I'm sure that with every bell ring during the movie sounded clear enough that several angels received their wings. Last thing: the app is missing a lot of key features that I think would significantly improve my SoundTouch 10 experience including using custom playlists in Amazon Music and being able to build playlists from a DLNA source, but I'm told that the app and speaker are under active development and I've already seen at least one update to the app since we purchased it. I would gladly recommend this to anyone.

    Good Wi-FI Speaker/performance, but.....

    Posted
    MTang1106

    Bose/Sonos are the two biggest players in the Wi-Fi sound arena right now with competition emerging from all other companies (LG, Samsung, etc.). Bose has the luxury of long being a major player in the speaker/sound arena, and Sonos has been the leader in wireless Hi-Fi. I have tried both systems, and I feel it's best summarized as Bose being a jack of all trades, and Sonos being a master of one. Sonos has the superior app (I have not had the opportunity to try the new Soundtouch app to date), as well as superior sound to the Soundtouch 10. That's not to say that the Soundtouch 10 is not good, but it just is not as good as the Sonos Play 1. The Soundtouch 10 is a good speaker. It has great highs and mids, but it lacks bass definition if you're in a more open space. When I put the speaker with it's back in a corner, the bass improved, but the Sonos was good everywhere. Sonos was SIGNIFICANTLY louder as well at lower volume levels while maintaining excellent sound clarity. I found myself missing the bass lines on some of my music. And by bass, I don't mean club thumping bass, I mean bass guitar lines in rock music. To most listeners, the Bose will prob. sound really good, but side by side to a Sonos, there is no comparison in sound quality. Where this unit wins is functionality. The presets are nice and convenient, and there is Bluetooth and aux. input connectivity, which allows you more flexibility in the content you can play on the speaker. Sonos is only for music, whereas the Bose Soundtouch can be used for streaming your Netflix on your iPad, or quick connectivity for a guest. Another thing is the ecosystem. Bose also has the Soundtouch 300 sound bar which in my opinion is significantly better than the Sonos playbar both in sound and aesthetics. Once you commit to Soundtouch or Sonos you're committed unless you want to use multiple apps which would defeat the purpose of Wi-Fi speakers in the first place. I would suggest weighing whether you want superior sound purely for music of if you would like more flexibility in functionality I would give this a 3/5 stars for sound and a 4.5/5 for functionality.

    I'm a Pandora One subscriber, so this right up my alley. Pandora is primarily what I use although the Bose Soundtouch works with other internet music sources, such as Spotify, Deezer, iHeartRadio, SiriusXM and your home music library. Soundtouch also connects to what feels like an endless amount of internet radio stations. I also own 2 Soundtouch 20's. All of these Soundtouch systems work in unison and it's fabulous. Every morning as my wife and I get ready for work, I turn on 3 of these Soundtouch units all playing whatever we feel like listening to as we get ready for work. So as we walk through the house, they're all playing the exact same song at the exact same time. The sound quality on the Bose Soundtouch 10 is great. On the 20, even better and the 30, the best. But with each numerical upgrade comes a bigger physical size and a bigger price tag. The 10 is great for bathrooms and smaller areas. The 20, I have one in my bedroom and one in the living room. The 30 is too big for my liking, but sounded great at the best buy store. Buy any of them, you'll be happy.

    Tried for Hours to Get a WIFI Connection.

    On paper, the Bose SoundTouch looked like the ideal solution for my 86 year-old mother-in-law. It could be set up to stream internet radio stations by merely pushing a button (#1 for classical, #2 for swing band jazz, #3 for show tunes, etc.) -- ideal for an individual not technically inclined. The preset buttons are unique to Bose. For instance, a Sonos speaker would require using an smart phone app to do the same thing. I am so bummed. I tried for hours to connect it to the WIFI in her retirement community. I had no problem at all connecting an iPhone, iPad and 2 PCs but the Bose would simply not connect. I really wanted this thing to work. The setup instructions are wretched. No documentation unless you go to the Bose site. Then there are all the 'secret handshakes' not documented in one place (press the '1' and '-' button to do this or the '4' and '-' button to do that) Clearly a half-baked product with no regard to user experience. Maybe it can be redeemed with future firmware updates, but don't count on it. I purchased it at BestBuy (same price as AMZ) but ended up returning it. I guess Bose still lives up to its reputation: Badly Overpriced (and Overrated) Stereo Equipment.

    Great But A Tad Complex

    Great sound - if you like the Bose sound. Bose has always had a very distinct sound to pretty much all of their speakers. This one does not fail that template. It is however a tad complex to get up an running and linked in with your WiFi. Note that you must run the Bose 'Sound Touch' app on a smartphone or tablet to use the WiFi features. It really is best as a speaker for playing back Spotify and Pandora or music from a hard drive attached to your network via WiFi I haven't used it as a Bluetooth speaker and probably won't. I purchased it specifically because of the WiFi. It's way more reliable, seems to use less battery on your smartphone than Bluetooth and when used in WiFi mode, eliminates all of those audio dropouts and notifications from your phone, while still leaving you full use of your phone... Including taking and making calls. That's pretty NICE! It's loud enough that two of these will cover a whole floor in a lot of homes and stays clear at full volume. However.... This device must be plugged into an AC power outlet. It is NOT really a good fit for on the go or outdoor use.

    Getting speaker to connect to tp link router was very difficult , Used app and Moto G4 android 7.0. tried all trouble shooting steps in manual , app and website. Searched Bose forums , and ended installing Bose app on Win 10 PC , connected with usb cable and it synced with router 1st try. (router was found using phone app , but couldnt connect ?) Was close to returning it , glad I didn't . Sound is fantastic inside the house and outside in the yard. Connects easily to router when outside the house well over 50 ft. away. Have not experienced any buffering or loss of signal. Streams flawlessly for over 8 hrs. a time outside or inside. Love the preset buttons on the top , this solved wife's reluctance to use bluetooth speakers we have , no pairing , connecting and opening settings or apps. Walk by speaker hit preset and it starts playing ( or use the very good remote controller ) .We don't tend to play it extremely loud in the house but outside it is capable of very clear high volume levels without distortion, and as long as app is open on your phone , your phones volume controls speaker volume. She easily loaded all her streaming music accounts into Bose app , and easily manages all playlists and stations from the one Bose app.

    Wanted a bluetooth speaker for my laptop for watching movies and listening to music. This speaker seemed to fit the bill. I should have done more research. I thought at first it had an internal rechargeable battery. It does not. It has to remained plugged in to an outlet. Strike one. Like I said, I should have done more research. Bose is synonymous with great sound. Well I can't say that I am completely happy with the sound this speaker puts out. I have a small bluetooth speaker I use for my iPhone that sounds much better, and it's not a Bose. I listened it in the store and it sounded good there, but doesn't seem to sound anything like it did in the store at home. Oh well. It doesn't sound bad, just not like a Bose. Strike two. Set up was relatively quick and easy. No complaints there. However the ap leaves much to be desired... Not going into detail there. But I don't use the ap and the speaker presets anymore....... All in all the speaker is adequate to meet my needs. However, it's not one I am totally happy with.

    Not fully compatible with Bose Music System IV

    We bought the Soundtouch 10 Wireless Speaker believing in the Bose literature, the Best Buy salesperson and the reputation of Bose as cutting edge tech. We found out the hard way that you can't link the Soundtouch 10 with the Wave Soundtouch Music System IV when playing CDs on the latter. Subsequent on-line research revealed that this is a well-known problem that Bose has chosen to dismiss, opting to advise us a work-around using a computer to record CDs and then play them using Bluetooth/Wifi. UGH! If you advertise as "fully compatible", the product should be fully compatible. I mean, Bose sold us the CD player! So, like thousands of other disappointed customers, we will not deal with Bose ever again. We kept the speaker: sound is good and the speaker is compatible with playing podcasts off my phone, and it is compatible for streaming on-line radio. Still, disappointment lingers every time I play a CD and can't use the wireless speaker to extend the sound to the next room.

    I wanted something to connect to my Echo Dot and/or Echo 2 in order to improve the audio quality.The selection at the local BB (Phillipsburg NJ) was overwhelming but I could listen to the plethora of solutions at the push of a button. Plus, the roving floor experts were extremely accessible, enthusiastic and helpful. With the help of my ears and their expertise, I settled on this item. Upon easy installation, I found that it was even better than I thought. Aside from Bose-quality output, the ability to maximize my SiriusXM subscripton and the remote is just outstanding. The remote works with every service that I have tried and has liberated me from constantly shouting at Alexa to adjust the volume, change tracks and more. This thing is the best and I am saving to get another one to pair for stereo sound. BTW, the app is outstanding, allowing me to play the library on my phone via my favorite app (Rocket Player) that is replete with equalization and other advanced playback features.

    I received this system for Christmas as the last edition to my SoundTouch family. I now own the 10, 20 and 30. I started on the SoundTouch journey last Christmas with the 30, and have acquired the 20 and 10 to date. I have no complaints about the systems. The app makes operation an ease. The app allows you to play all units at the same time, separately and much more. I use the 10 as "accent sound" on a corner bookshelf that I have in the same room where I placed my 20. The 10 is more of an accent speaker. It is not designed to necessarily "blow you away" but it lives up to Bose standards. I highly recommend Bose SoundTouch 10,20 and 30 to anyone who is looking for a quality, versatile wireless system. The beauty of these systems is that you aren't forced to overextend yourself by purchasing them all in one set. You start with one and continue adding as time goes on. Wifi adds to the beauty, as it allows you to move the speaker anywhere you desire without working about extending wires etc. I am a very satisfied customer.

    Sound is great, but what I like most is being able to use my phone to access all the free streaming services loaded on the speaker. Yes, I could use my phone to access the services and then link to the speaker via Bluetooth, but with the Bose app I like using the streaming software on the speaker itself to browse through tons and tons of radio stations around the world and listen to local radio from other countries. It reminds me of the old days of searching through shortwave radio frequencies to see what you could pick up (except no static, and you know exactly what station you're listening to and where it's originating). Of course, I also stream music and podcasts from the usual services when I'm more in the mood to do that. Summary: Very versatile and has a good sound.

    I already owned a SoundTouch 30, so I bought this SoundTouch 10 so that I could more fully "fill" the room with sound. It works as expected including the "Play Everywhere" function in the app. My one regret with all the SoundTouch products is that they do not incorporate a graphic equalizer (other than for bass where the default is all the way up). I would greatly appreciate the ability to adjust the high and midrange frequencies. Since the SoundTouch 10 only incorporates a single speaker, it is incapable of producing true stereo sound. What would be a great idea would be if you could by two of them and with an equalizer set one to only play the right channel and the other to play only the left channel. This would give you the opportunity to set the units on opposite sides of the room and really enjoy the true stereo of the music. There is a reason that music is recorded in stereo, and it would be nice to enjoy it. If you are looking for a wireless unit the will allow you to play music in different rooms, this unit will do that; and do it well.

    I was never a big Bose fan of their wireless speakers. My wife bought a Bose Link wireless speaker for her office and I thought my cheaper bluetooth speakers sounded just as good for half the price. I then started looking for Wifi speakers for our home. I looked at Sono's but the sound coming from the Bose Soundtouch 10 was just a little bit better especially in hearing the vocals. Once I got Soundtouch 10 home and listen to in my home office, I was blown away how good it sound in my office. I love it some much I bought the Soundtouch 20 for kitchen and another Soundtouch 10 for our bedroom. I love how easy it is to pair the speakers to my phone and app. The presets on the speaker is also great. I listen to my favorite Pandora or Spotify Station at a push of a button. I don't have to have my phone or tablet with me. Another bonus is that I can use it on my Mac computer when I am working. I highly recommend the SoundTouch System to anyone looking for a WiFI speaker system.

    I got this in conjunction with an Echo dot. Stand-alone, it works great. I particularly like the 6 pre-sets. But I cannot get it to work consistently with the Dot. I was planning on using the Bluetooth connection. It worked initially, but then I switched it to play music from my ipad. When switched back, the Dot said it was connected...but...no sound. Nothing I did seemed to work. So...I bought an audio cable and connected it via the AUX port. That worked...except...the speaker times out after 20 minutes of inactivity. It must be turned on manually or via the remote before it can be used with the dot. What's the point of having an always-on device like the dot...when the speaker times out? It seems to be a common complaint. I tried the telnet trick to disable the timeout, but that didn't work...still timed out. I'm hoping for a software update to fix that. If so, it would be the perfect device for use with the Dot.

    Simplicity

    I chose this model based upon the reviews for ease of use. I wanted a system that will reliably connect to my WiFi and an app that is sufficient to play the various music I have. When it works, the app is sufficient to accomplish my goal but that’s only when it connects, which is sporadically at best. I’ve been toiling with this device for 5 days and still cannot get the app to connect to the speakers or to get the speaker system to recognize my router. I’ve tried resetting the router, multiple times, to no avail. The sound quality it what I expected from Bose and when it works it lives up to its billing and reviews. I’ve attempted to link my Sirius XM account to the app and spent over 90 minuets on the phone with Sirius tech support since the app gave me a message that Sirius wasn’t available. Still cannot connect to Sirius. Maybe I have a defective unit and most likely will return this.

    I am an old time music fan. I have a quality seperate unit stereo with large 4 element bookshelf (more like floor standing) speakers and this speaker gives that unit a run for it’s money. In sound output and quality of sound. I have always been a fan of the Bose 901 speaker. It was always the gold standard and what I compared my current sound system too when I purchased it. Technology and innovation. This was not on my radar till a co-worker brought an older gen model to work to play Christmas music a couple of years ago. I work in a large open space building with cubes. The little speaker filled the space with music. I now have 3 at home. I can be at one end of the house and it sounds like it is in the same room with me. I love these.

    I wanted a speaker so that I could listen to the music on my ipod in my home rather than through the earphones. I found that Bose no longer sells the speaker that you could use to charge and listen to the ipod, so I began researching what was available now. I looked at the Bose Soundtrack 10, 20 and 30 wireless systems and read all the reviews. I finally decided on the 10 even though I was not sure it would be large enough for my great room/kitchen area, but it was on sale so I decided to take a chance. I am so glad I did because it provides excellent sound over the whole area. I do wish it would charge the ipod while playing, but I am VERY satisfied with the sound. I am using the bluetooth feature to listen to the ipod.

    My journey with Bose multiroom speakers started off rough. I couldn’t get the speakers to connect with each other to play the same song in different rooms. I had to spend close to 2 hours on the phone with techinical support to get them to finally work like they were suppose to. Once they fixed it. I have been highly satisfied. The remote works beautifully. The app is easy to use. The best part I was not expecting; not only does these speaker have Bluetooth the Bluetooth connection can play as multiroom speakers. This made my life!!!! Bose made me very happy! Only got a 4 and not a 5 because of the week of stress of trying to finally get in touch with someone who could get the speakers to work. Skip the forums and call Bose technical support to save yourself a lot of time and energy. The company is a little in denial.

    I would recommend this to a friend
