Bose SoundTouch 300

 

The Bose SoundTouch 300 soundbar delivers strong audio performance with multiple ways to stream music and connect to your TV.

Immersive sound with adjustable bass and good clarity in the highs. AdaptIQ adjusts audio to suit your room's contour and reflections. Expandable with wireless Bose speakers. Versatile connectivity, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and HDMI ARC.

No treble EQ. DSP can be intense at high volume levels.

We have little to complain about with the Bose SoundTouch 300. For every limitation, like the lack of onboard EQ controls, there are useful features that might entice you, like the AdaptIQ settings that adjust to your room's contour and reflections. We...

Bose SoundTouch 300 review

 

Sound bars are more popular than ever, but high-end versions have an issue: their small size means they struggle to compete with traditional, larger loudspeakers. Companies such as Yamaha, Sony, Sonos and Bose, however, have learned how to use your...

The Bose SoundTouch 300 is capable of a gorgeously wide sound field, which benefits both music and movies. The speaker is capable of reproducing both dialog and incidental effects with crystal clarity. The system offers easy-to-use music streaming via...

Losing the remote can be more troublesome than with most gadgets. To get the best sound from the system you'll have pay up to a thousand dollars more for a subwoofer and surround speakers. The sound bar's wide effect only works with bare, unobstructed...

The Bose SoundTouch 300 offers sound quality that betters its Sonos rival, but bass is a weakness without the (expensive) add-on sub.

Bose SoundTouch 300 Review

 

What the SoundTouch 300 lacks in bass production, it makes up for in clarity and surround sound simulation. Adding a subwoofer to this sound bar would greatly improve the bass production and round out the sound quality. Without the subwoofer, it still...

It has great surround sound simulation.

The bass performance suffers because it doesn’t have a subwoofer.

If you add a subwoofer, this sound bar is one of the best-sounding systems available.

It has great surround sound simulation.

The bass performance suffers from the lack of a subwoofer.

Adding a subwoofer to this sound bar system could make this the best sounding sound bar system available.

Bose SoundTouch 300 review

 

This is a beautifully made, precise sounding soundbar

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

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

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

Bose SoundTouch 300

 

The Bose SoundTouch 300 is a premium soundbar equipped with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and multiroom functionality. It streams music from Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Music and NAS drives via the SoundTouch app, while a raft of nifty audio tech delivers powerful home...

Bose’s beautifully made soundbar delivers a loud, bass-heavy sound – but it lacks the bite and sparkle of its illustrious rivals.

Bose SoundTouch 300 review: Slick looking, but audio quality could be better

 

Gorgeous design, but the price is too high and the sound quality middling

Looks fabulous ; Attractive, easy to use app ; Room adaptive EQ

Expensive for a single soundbar ; Sound quality is good but not great ; Lacks Apple Airplay and Google Cast

For this sort of cash you can land yourself a very decent soundbar and subwoofer setup, a soundbase, or even a full wireless surround setup such as the Philips Fidelio B5 , which not only gives you a wireless subwoofer but also completely wireless,...

Bose SoundTouch 300 review

 

Can Bose's stylish new soundbar cut it against the competition?

Neat, discreet build ; Loud, expansive sound ; Vast streaming features ; Multi-room potential ; Good app user experience

Sound lacks subtlety and crispness ; Falls short dynamically ; Bass lacks absolute depth ; Needs greater midrange expression

Top points for style and specification, but uncompetitive sound is its undoing
