Bose® SoundLink® Air wireless music system, Black

Product information

The Bose SoundLink Air system brings your music to life via AirPlay and your home wireless network. Enjoy all your content from your favourite Apple devices in clear, room-filling sound - in any room in the house. Set up is easy, and thanks to cutting-edge Bose sound engineering, you’ll enjoy more detailed , expansive sound than you ever thought possible from a wireless system.

Key benefits:

  • This compact system delivers exceptional acoustic performance using Bose waveguide speaker technology. You'll hear the rich, detailed sound you'd expect from a much larger speaker. Just plug it in, add it to your home wireless network, and you have a go-to speaker for playing your favourite streaming content.

  • Instead of physically docking your device, you connect wirelessly via AirPlay to stream music from your Apple device or a computer running iTunes. And you have full use of your Apple device as you listen. Setup is easy. Just plug in the system, connect it to a computer with the included USB cable and go to the setup site. Once you're up and running, the system communicates with your devices wirelessly over your home network, and you can move it anywhere you want to listen.

  • The system also features an auxiliary input so you can connect and play music from other devices that don't use AirPlay. And a rechargeable battery (sold separately) turns the system into a portable speaker that you can carry easily from room to room with its built-in handle. Control the system with your device or with the included remote. You can also adjust the volume with buttons on the system.

  • Additional SoundLink® Air systems in multiple rooms networked to your computer can stream music throughout your home. You'll never miss a beat as you move from one place to another.

  • LED interface lets you see which source is selected, network connection status and mute option.

  • Convenient power supply features manageable cord, allowing for easy storage. Interchangeable prongs eliminate the need for bulky converters during international travel.

  • The SoundLink Air also comes with a remote for total control over your listening.

Q & As

Bose® SoundLink® Air wireless music system, Black 4.6 5 18 18
Excellent I got this as a present for my boyfriend, the sound quality is amazing! 20 June 2014
Terrible Won't play more than a couple of songs without cutting out and that is if you can get it to play in the first place. Contacted Bose who confirmed the software on the docking station is up to date and the only advice they could offer was that it could be the wireless signal. None of my 7 other wireless devices have an issue or stop working the minute the microwave goes on! 09 April 2014
What a gem! Bought a recertified Bose SLA - and it is as good as new! But I shouldn't have expected anything less from John Lewis! Have been reviewing different systems to use and I kept being drawn back to this one. It is amazing! Best thing I have ever invested in! I have listened to more music in the last few days than ever! It all sounds awesome on this system. I am even going to treat myself to the smaller speaker so that I can have stereo sound playing in the kitchen and the living room simultaneously. And John Lewis service is fantastic! 29 March 2014
Amazing sound quality but needs decent Wifi I have given the Soundlink Air 4 rather than 5 stars because the unit is particularly discerning on WiFi quality, more so than anything else we use over WiFi. It took 3 Devolo powerplugs to meet its standards but once done it was worth it as the sound quality from a device of this size is astonishing. No luck with our iPad or iPhone so far but this does not concern us as we run it off an iMac for all conceivable purposes. 04 March 2014
Amazing product! If you are put off by the price of this, don't be. It is worth every penny and you get what you pay for. Amazing sound quality and so easy to set up and use via AirPlay. Tried a cheaper air speaker from another manufacturer but I returned it. So glad I paid the extra and bought this. 22 January 2014
Great sound This speaker is awesome. Easy to set up. Service from John Lewis was faultless as normal 15 January 2014
Compact, elegant, and sounds great Big for a 'wireless' speaker, this unit is very small by the standards of normal stereo speakers. So it has its work cut out producing volume and a semblance of bass, but the designer has voiced the Bose Soundlink Air beautifully, giving a big, generous and warm presentation of a wide variety of music. The unit is elegant and well finished, and its only demerit is the high asking price for the (optional) rechargeable battery. Love it. 26 November 2013
