SoundTouch 300 soundbar

Overview

Overview

You want the best sound.
So we made our best soundbar.


Many people view soundbars as a common solution to space-saving home cinema. But we don't aim for "common".

The SoundTouch 300 soundbar offers the best performance, spaciousness and bass of any one-piece soundbar of its size. Every cubic inch of it is packed with technologies that bring out the best in everything you listen to or watch. Custom drivers, proprietary QuietPort and PhaseGuide technology … and the feeling of hearing sounds where there are no speakers. It all adds up to a premium audio experience for all your entertainment.

… and it looks as good as it sounds

It's a statement in craftsmanship, really. This slim wireless soundbar features a premium glass top and perforated wrap-around metal grille that really draws the eye. And don't give that tempered glass top a second thought. It's as strong as aluminium of the same thickness—but much better looking.

Less effort, more music

With the SoundTouch 300 speaker, we put a lot of thought into taking the thinking out. And that extends well beyond its home cinema performance. When it comes to enjoying your music, you can listen whichever way you want, without worrying about which technology is best. This speaker lets you play music directly from a phone or tablet using Bluetooth®, or connect the speaker to your Wi-Fi® network for instant in-home listening, without the need for your phone.

Fast, simple control of all your music

Experience your favourite music from your SoundTouch speaker with the SoundTouch app. SoundTouch lets you take total control of your listening experience, right from your smartphone or tablet. Browse popular music services like Spotify® and Deezer, Internet radio or your stored music library. Easily personalise presets for one-touch access to the music you love, and control one or many SoundTouch® speakers around your home.

Want to kick it up a notch? Add more.

When you first hear the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar, you'll understand why we spent nearly 10 years perfecting the technologies that really make it sing. But you can have more, whenever you want. Just add the Acoustimass 300 wireless bass module. It's the difference between hearing bass and feeling thunder. Even more? Combine it with Virtually Invisible 300 wireless surround speakers for full-on surround sound.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great alternative to Sonos I have had the Soundtouch for a few weeks now and I have been loving it son far. While it is expensive it is cheaper than Sonos, and has all the streaming features I need from it, which is pretty much Spotify. The fact that it can be upgraded to a 5.1 style system in the future was one of the main selling points. The speaker itself is very well made and extremely easy to set up. If you have an ARC HDMI port you just need to plug that in and away you go. The speaker calibration seems to make quite a bit difference. It it is more deep than high, so it fits nicely under my TV without getting close to the lowest edge of the TV. It is quite wide, getting close to the width of my 55” screen. Sound quality is great but the base is lacking slightly, which is understandable for a relatively small/thin speaker. It is more than adequate for most of my usage though, but I think I will get the sub and surrounds later in the year, as it is nice to have a bit more power for when you are watching some movies. Overall, I am really happy with the speaker, and most importantly it just works without faffing around with changing sources or various settings, so my girlfriend has not complained about it yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent upgrade on the Bose Solo 5 I've had this soundbar for around a month now and thought I'd share my experiences of it so far. Firstly it looks amazing and fits very well with my curved Samsung TV. It is also very easy to set up even though it felt a wee bit silly moving around the room with the ADAPTIQ headset whilst completing the set up process. Secondly it sounds amazing! I had previously used the Bose Solo 5 soundbar which I'd been perfectly happy with but this takes TV viewing experience up a notch. The clarity of speech is a big improvement and so is the bass. Yes the surround sound and bass effect aren't quite as good as a dedicated multi speaker system with a separate sub but if like me your significant other doesn't want to have speakers and wires all over your house then this is perfect. I also have 2 SoundTouch 10 speakers which if you use the Bose SoundTouch app allows me to pair the soundbar with them meaning I can enjoy the same music throughout in multiple rooms and at different volumes in each room. Now for the only issues I've encountered. The preferred connection option is HDMI output ARC but this just didn't work for me for longer than 5 minutes at a time meaning I've had to connect via the optical output from my TV. Not a big issue but if HDMI ARC is the preferred option I'd prefer to use that option. The other issue was with the universal remote control. This was a pain to setup for my TV and Virgin Tivo box and after fiddling through the setup it became clear that my Samsung TV wasn't compatible with the universal remote. Again not a big issue but a little bit annoying. All in all I'm very happy with the soundbar and would recommend to anyone I know looking to purchase a soundbar.

FAQs

FAQs

Can the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar be wall-mounted?

Yes. The optional WB-300 wall bracket let you mount the SoundTouch® 300 flush to the wall.

How do I connect a Bluetooth® device with the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar using NFC?

Select the Bluetooth® source on the remote (or via the app). Ensure your mobile device has NFC turned on. Gently tap the device near the Bose® logo on the top of the SoundTouch® 300, and your device will automatically pair.

How do I connect a Bluetooth® device with the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar without using NFC?

Press and hold the Bluetooth® source button on the remote for several seconds until the light begins to flash. Ensure your mobile device is in pairing mode and select the SoundTouch® 300. You also can pair your mobile device to the SoundTouch® 300 using the SoundTouch® app. In the app, find the SoundTouch® 300 in the device tray, select "explore" and then select Bluetooth®. On your mobile device, select the SoundTouch® 300.

What kind of batteries does the remote control use?

The remote uses 4 alkaline AAA batteries.

How does the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar connect to a TV?

The simplest way to connect the SoundTouch® 300 is via an HDMI™ cable to your TV. If your TV has an "HDMI-ARC" connection, you should use that connection. If your TV does not have an HDMI™ connection, then you should connect the SoundTouch® 300 to the TV using an optical cable.

What placement guidelines should be considered to ensure optimal audio performance from the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar?

The SoundTouch® 300 uses the reflective surfaces of the room to deliver a spacious home cinema experience. To ensure optimal audio performance, the soundbar should be placed equidistant from each side wall and directly in front-centre of the TV. No objects should be placed on either side of the soundbar, nor should it be placed inside a cabinet, as this would result in a limited sound stage.

Can source devices, such as a cable box, iPod®, gaming system, etc., be connected directly to the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar?

Yes. For the simplest connection, you should connect all sources to the TV, and then connect the TV to the SoundTouch® 300 via HDMI-ARC. But if your TV does not have enough open HDMI™ ports, you can disconnect one source from a TV HDMI™ slot, then connect the SoundTouch® 300 to that open HDMI™ port. Then, connect that source to the soundbar and utilise the "pass-through" capability of the SoundTouch® 300.

Can I control the bass?

Yes. Bass can be controlled via the bass button on the universal IR remote control or via the settings menu in the SoundTouch® app.

Do I need a separate receiver with the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar?

No. The system connects directly to your TV.

Is the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar compatible with 4K video?

Yes, this system will pass through Ultra High Definition 4K video from a source device to the TV at 60 frames per second (FPS).

Does the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar have a headphone output?

No.

Can I use the SoundTouch® presets with the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar?

Yes, like other SoundTouch® systems, the SoundTouch® 300 uses presets via the SoundTouch® app and the remote control.

Does the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar have Bluetooth® and NFC built in?

Yes.

What accessories are available for the SoundTouch® 300 soundbar?

If you want to add deeper bass to your soundbar, then you can add on the optional Acoustimass® 300 wireless bass module. If you want to have a more immersive surround sound experience, you can add the optional Virtually Invisible® 300 wireless surround speakers. And of course, if you want the full 5.1 experience, you can add them both.
