It’s Friday, so that means once again we’re recapping some of the latest and greatest iOS device accessories that hit the market this week.
SoundTouch Speakers from Bose
Audio giant Bose is looking to challenge Sonos head-on with the introduction of its SoundTouch line of speakers. Designed to take advantage of multiple streaming music services like Pandora, the speaker line is AirPlay-compatible and connects directly to a Wi-Fi network. Powered by the companion SoundTouch app
, users can drag-and-drop any music source, like a favorite Pandora station, a playlist, or Internet radio station, to the six preset buttons on the speaker. The app also allows music lovers to browse online music choices or their own music libraries.
Buyers can choose from one of three different speakers with the capability. The smallest, SoundTouch Portable
, is $399.95 and features a rechargeable battery. SoundTouch 20
goes for the same price and is made for medium-sized rooms. SoundTouch 30
is the most powerful system in the arsenal, and features technology to fill the large rooms with sound. It will set you back $699.95.
Bose is also offering a Wave system and various other speakers/amplifiers with the SoundTouch capability.
