Bose Wave SoundTouch Music System Review

The Bose Wave SoundTouch Music System IV is everything I never knew I wanted in a sounds system. It is compact, wireless, and has beautiful output quality. At first, I was a little afraid of the price point, but don’t fret, this system is all you will ever need and is sure to last (you know… kind of like buying furniture).


The Bose build and performance quality speaks for itself. From picking up far out AM/FM signals to syncing up your playlists from your favorite stream service, this system just makes having ambient music in the house a breeze. Now, I am not a sound system guru and probably do not appreciate the technicals of this system, but my satisfaction is binary. All I know is that my Bose sounds much better than my previous systems I’ve had.

A quick note on my dislikes of the Bose Wave SoundTouch

The only thing that I (kind of) don’t like about this system is the design… it seems a bit clunky! I had a rough time deciding where to station it because I was trying to not make it the center of the room.  There are definitely sleeker looking systems out there, but as soon as I turn the Bose Wave SoundTouch, I don’t care. THIS THING SOUNDS GREAT! … even if it does look like a toaster oven from the Jetsons.
