Bose Announces The SoundLink Air System, Its First-Ever Apple Airplay-Enabled Product

On a busy day for Apple products Bose decided to quietly announce the next generation of its portable wireless speaker, the SoundLink Air system, its first-ever Apple Airplay-enabled product.

The SoundLink Air incorporates proprietary Bose acoustic waveguide speaker technology, neodymium transducers, and Bose digital signal processing to deliver detailed, room-filling sound across the entire frequency range and at any listening level.

Setup is straightforward. Connect the SoundLink Air system to a computer using the included USB cable, go to, complete a few easy steps and the SoundLink Air system connects to a home Wi-Fi network. Once complete, an AirPlay icon automatically appears on the Apple device or a computer running iTunes (Mac or PC). Select it, and music is streamed instantly to the SoundLink Air system.

The SoundLink Air system has two options for control of basic functions: the Apple iOS device or an included infrared remote. It also offers an aux-in to connect to other audio devices and an optional rechargeable lithium-ion battery for more freedom. Unplug the system and place it anywhere in range of the Wi-Fi network for hours of uninterrupted listening.

The SoundLink will cost $349.95 and will be available for purchase on September 13th.
