This compact wireless 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.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE SOUND

You want to fill your room with music, not equipment. The SoundTouch® 20 wireless speaker is just what you’re looking for. While it has a small footprint, it’s engineered for exceptional sound. Not only will you get the most from your music—you’ll also get our obsession with delivering better sound.

ONE SYSTEM FOR A WORLD OF MUSIC

SoundTouch® speakers give you wireless access to popular music services like Spotify®, Internet radio stations and your stored music library. All in one system.

Made for the way you live. And the way you listen.

They all work together. So as you go from room to room, your music goes along with you. Use them to play different music in different rooms, or the same music in every room.

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. Browse popular music services such as Spotify® and Deezer, Internet radio or your stored music library.

INSTANT LISTENING

Only SoundTouch® lets you save your favourite music with six preset buttons for instant listening, so you don’t have to waste time searching for your favourites.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I thought it was overpriced, I was so wrong On Christmas 2015 I bought a SoundLink Mini and I was so satisfied (see my review) that last Christmas I decided to step up a little and buy another speaker with a little more power to listen in the kitchen and the living room, and at the end decided for the SoundTouch 20. At the beginning I was a little startled by its price, at that price you can buy a much bigger system, but I did not want a big system. I do a lot of casual listening when I am at home, especially streaming music, and this speaker with WiFi capability seemed perfect to me. And its size of course, I wanted something bigger than the SoundLink Mini to have more power, but still I wanted it to sit on the counter of the kitchen. I am do glad I bought it. For my use, it is just perfect. It seats on thecounter between the kitchen and the dining/living room, it is quite a large space and the little guy is able to fill it with music quite easily, keeping the volume just above half. Of course this is not a surround system, do not expect the floor to shake, but the quality of the audio is really good, like the SoundLink its position needs a little adjustment to get a balanced sound otherwise the bass is a little too overpowering. The aesthetics is great, it can blend in any space, it is really well built, easy to pair if you use Bluetooth, the WiFi connection is great, so far it never lost it. It has a rechargeable battery inside, so you can disconnect it, take it into another room (it is not that heavy really and easy to carry) and it remembers all the settings. It is great for music streaming, you can preselect up to six internet stations and select them pressing one of the buttons. It has a nice black and white display that shows you in which mode it is, and details of the song it is playing. With these six stations you can use it standalone, without the use of any external device. A WiFi device is needed to configure it, and the process it is very easy using a free application that you can download from whatever platform you use. I really like the volume, usually when the volume is set using two up/down buttons there is too much difference between steps and sometimes you can't set the volume at the right level, it is either too low or too high; not with this device, pressing the volume buttons a bar indicator showing the volume level appears on the display, and you can easily and fast reach the desired level. My only critic is the user interface of the associated app. It works great to configure the WiFi and set up, very easy to use. Unfortunately it is not intuitive at all when you want to listen to it, the few buttons are confusing and it took a while to me to learn the steps to select which "mode" to use and how to select the station. I found myself thinking "now what", so I started tapping buttons, only after few days I got used to it. Overall I really recommend this product. If you don't need WiFi connection you can find something cheaper, otherwise this is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs. It's hard to believe that such great sound comes from this little unit. Setup was a very simple procedure as was the app that controls the various features. There may be a premium for BOSE products but it's well worth it. Wifi and bluetooth work flawlessly as does the downloaded app for my Mac. Don't waste your time looking for something better. In my opinion there are none. Great job BOSE.

FAQs

FAQs

What is needed to set up my SoundTouch® speaker?

All you need is a home Wi-Fi® network and a smartphone or tablet. Everything else required is included in the box.

What Internet streaming music can I play?

SoundTouch speakers let you play Internet radio stations from around the world. Where available, you can also play Internet services like Spotify® and Deezer®.

Can SoundTouch® speakers be used in a public Wi-Fi® spot (airports, coffee shops, etc.)?

No. Although most of these networks are free to use, their sign-up/sign-in processes differ from the SoundTouch® app setup process. SoundTouch® products are designed for in-home use, not on-the-go.

Can I play music stored on my computer?

Yes. SoundTouch® speakers can play music stored on your computer that is managed by iTunes® or Windows® Media Player.

How many speakers can I have on my network at one time?

It depends on the bandwidth of your home Wi-Fi® network. For most homes, we expect you can have up to four speakers connected wirelessly. For more than four rooms, we recommend using Ethernet wired connections to some of them.

Can I stream different music to different rooms?

Yes, if you have multiple SoundTouch® products, you can stream different music in different rooms, the same music in every room or customise zones to play what you want where you want.

What operating systems are compatible with the SoundTouch® app?

The app is compatible with Windows® 7, 8, 10; 64-bit Macs running OS X 10.8 and later; any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 8.2 and later; Android devices running Android 4.4 and later.

What are the differences between the SoundTouch® 10, 20 and 30 wireless speakers?

Even though the SoundTouch® 10, 20 and 30 all offer Wi-Fi® connectivity, Bluetooth® connectivity and effortless one-touch presets to access your favourite streaming music, they each provide different levels of performance for different-sized rooms in your home. The SoundTouch® 10 is our smallest SoundTouch® speaker that delivers full, rich sound and Bose® performance that seems to defy its size. The SoundTouch® 20 is a compact, wireless speaker that delivers clear, room-filling sound. The SoundTouch® 30 is our best-performing, one-piece wireless speaker with Bose® waveguide speaker technology that produces deep, rich sound to fill your largest room. Another difference is that both SoundTouch® 20 and 30 display in-depth song, artist, station and connectivity information on an OLED screen, whereas the SoundTouch® 10 displays simple connectivity information via 4 LEDs on the front of the product.

Can I play stored music from a NAS (Network Attached Storage) drive on SoundTouch® speakers?

Yes, SoundTouch® speakers are compatible with selected NAS drives, including Synology's DiskStation, Passport + and Western Digital's My Cloud™, so you can stream your personal music library even while your computer is off.

Can SoundTouch® speakers stream AM/FM radio or TV audio from one room to another?

No. SoundTouch® speakers are designed to stream Internet radio, music services like Spotify or music stored on a computer.

Does the speaker support Bluetooth®?

Yes. Users can wirelessly stream music from a Bluetooth® device to listen to even more sources, such as YouTube.

Can I stream music from multiple computers using SoundTouch® speakers?

Yes, as long as each computer has the SoundTouch® app installed on it. Each computer appears as a separate library on the app's source list.

Does the speaker have a battery?

No, it does not have a battery.

Do the speakers support near-field communications?

No. SoundTouch® speakers support Bluetooth® connectivity pairing via the physical buttons on the speaker or the controller app.

Does the speaker support AirPlay®?

No. Current speakers no longer support AirPlay®. However, previous generation SoundTouch® 20 and 30 speakers will continue to support it.

Can SoundTouch® speakers be used together?

Yes. Any one of these systems can be used with another system (from the current series or from a previous series) to create a multi-room audio system.
