Bose has announced an AirPlay addition to its SoundLink line of mobile speakers: the SoundLink Air Digital Music System.

The SoundLink Air represents the second generation of the company’s wireless product family and along with its sibling, the SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II, should deliver even better sound thanks to improved neodymium transducers and better DSP performance, combined of course with Bose’s signature waveguide speaker technology.

The SoundLink Air features sleek styling with gloss black trim, a remote control, and a protective bifold cover that unfolds into a stand. Measuring 12” x 7″ x 4″ deep, it’s portable (although not all that compact), but for taking it on the road you’re going to need the optional rechargeable battery. And that’s where things start adding up. Priced at $349 US (plus $90 for the optional battery), the SoundLink Air offers premium sound at a premium price.

The SoundLink Air Digital Music System is available now from Bose. For more information, check out the product page at
