Nice Device. The same size as the SoundDock II.

Sound Quality- Excellent. (5 Stars). The system definitely fills the room with great sound. The bass levels were crisp and mid/lows are very succinct
Setup- (4 Stars). - There are two setup options. Download the programs on your mac and run to setup your system. The Air system must run through your home wireless network. If the unit is far from your router you may have intermittent connection issues.
Connection (4 stars)- Once in a while, like Bluetooth the system drops the device. I had to reconnect, but this has been a rare occurrence. I have listened for hours without any problems.
Cost (3.5 Stars)- Wish it was rechargeable for the price.
Controls (4 Stars)- Since volume and changing songs on the remote have to go through your network there is a one second +/- delay. The same with changing the volume level.
I've had it for a week and love the system. Previously I had a SoundDock II. …

When I tried to download the s I was excited when I saw this new product which would give me wireless sound in the room I wanted. When I tried to download the software onto my mac, it would not accept my network password so downloading was not possible. It would download only when I removed my password, but that would leave my network vulnerable. Maybe i just got a bad unit, either way it's going back for a refund today. …

I n Like another reviewer, I am on my second Bose Soundlink Air, having taken the first one back because I thought it was faulty. I now realise the fault is built in: this system simply can't cope with wi-fi, despite its claim to be designed for that purpose. It used to be that it started to break up when I used the internet in the same room. Now it breaks up even when I'm not using the internet - it only seems to work without spluttering if I shut down all three computers. For the price, this really isn't good enough. This one will be going back to store too. …

Awesome sound and so easy to set up!
Just wanted a decent speaker for my new iPhone. This Bose speaker is awesome in sound alone.
Requires mains plug in, although re Just wanted a decent speaker for my new iPhone. This Bose speaker is awesome in sound alone.
Requires mains plug in, although rechargeable battery can be purchased as considerable extra cost. However, this speaker has a long mains lead, any longer it would possibly be out of range for the wireless router!!!
Set up only took a couple of minuets via my MacBook. Now I am wirelessly streaming music via my iPhone or MacBook. Both are running latest Apple software, no issues at all and it's been constantly playing for last Two hours or more!
Unit is stylish and unimposing, sleek and well designed/built. Small remote is a bonus, for when I am too lazy to get my IPhone out of my pocket. …

Can i bring the system to a beach or places wirelessly?
- Asked by Ryan M
Yes! For some reason, this feature isnt really advertised. All you have to do is hold the reset but Yes! For some reason, this feature isnt really advertised. All you have to do is hold the reset button down until the wifi light on the speaker turns orange. Then you use your ios device to connect to the wifi network called "bose soundlink air". I think this only works for music thats actually on your device and not for streaming but I could be wrong. Another option is to use an av cable and connect wired to the device, which works for all non-ios devices as well.
Hope this helps!
