Bose today announced three new wireless systems created just for staying in: the SoundTouch 300 soundbar, crushing the limitations of single-speaker performance for music and movies, and two new luxury Lifestyle home entertainment systems, combining stunning surround sound with an equally stunning design. The new SoundTouch 300 measures just 38.5” W x 4.25” H x 2.25” D, and delivers the best audio performance for any soundbar its size, no matter what you’re listening to.
It’s Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled with NFC for easy pairing, so streaming Spotify, Pandora, or virtually anything else is simple and fast. For watching movies, shows or sports, it’s equally powerful. And it breaks from convention further with its thin profile and premium materials, including a perforated wrap-around metal grille and gorgeous glass top.
“With the SoundTouch 300, we’ve filled a gap in the market,” said Pete Ogley, general manager of Bose audio-for-video. “We pushed the boundaries of size, sound and design like nothing else available in the category. We added Bluetooth to Wi-Fi so you can stream anything, instantly. And because it doubles as a wireless music system and home theater system, you’ll get an incredible experience whether you’re listening to your playlists, enjoying Netflix, or watching the game — all from one gorgeous speaker.”
The SoundTouch 300 uses exclusive PhaseGuide arrays to send signals to the left and right of the room. So, according to Bose, you’ll hear what you won’t see – separate channels of a soundtrack or song coming from places where there are no speakers. Proprietary QuietPort technology ensures deep, clean bass at any volume – turn it up, and it won’t distort. Bose added advanced DSP for detail and balance across all frequencies. And because every room’s size, shape and furnishings are different, the SoundTouch 300 uses ADAPTiQ calibration to customize its sound to your home, automatically.
Set-up is easy with HDMI Audio Return Channel (ARC) – only one cable is needed to sync the SoundTouch 300 to a TV, DVD player or streaming services. The system is future proof, too; with 4K pass-through, it’s compatible with today’s technology, and tomorrow’s. While the SoundTouch 300’s performance stands on its own, it can be customized with additional components, including the new, acoustically matched Acoustimass 300 wireless bass module, and/or the Virtually Invisible 300 wireless surround speakers for a full 5.1 experience. As part of the Bose SoundTouch family, it can also wirelessly connect to other SoundTouch speakers around the house for the ultimate, multi-room entertainment system.
The Bose Lifestyle 650 luxury home entertainment system has it all – astonishing 5.1 performance from the most refined Bose design ever. It debuts the smallest satellite speakers in Bose history – four new OmniJewel satellite speakers, measuring in at a staggering 1.84” W x 5.77” H x 1.84” D. Each OmniJewel speaker includes new high-excursion transducers positioned in opposing fashion for dramatic output. Together, they work with a slim center channel and bass module for jaw-dropping, omni-directional sound. Packed with technology, all of the Lifestyle 650’s speakers are housed in brushed, anodized aluminum, driven by a sleek, curved console accented with polished glass. While the system components can easily disappear in a room, they’re visually stunning and meant to be seen.
The SoundTouch 300 soundbar, Acoustimass 300 bass module and surround speakers, and Lifestyle 650 and 600 systems are now available. The SoundTouch 300 soundbar will be sold for AED 2,999. Its optional bass module is available for AED 2,999; its acoustically matched surround sound speakers are available starting at AED 1,299. The Lifestyle 650 and 600 home entertainment systems will be sold for AED 16,599 and AED 12,599, respectively.
