The Bose SoundTouch system has good overall sound. It's speakers are easy to use but the apps to control it are very difficult to use. It has Bluetooth and works with Google Play Music but doesn't have AirPlay.
Sound is based on our panel of 3 music listening experts’ appraisal of different pieces of music (classical and rock/pop). The speaker is positioned about 2 metres away from the listeners, with the panel assessing overall sound quality.
For networked speakers this is done individually and as a system.
Ease of use considers both the Apple and Android versions of the apps and the ease of connecting and setting up the speaker, as well as sending music to the speaker.

The sound quality for the size of the unit is very good, crisp and clear with good base quality. It provides the flexibility to bluetooth to the device or use the Bose App, which isn't difficult to use like stated under the test. I found it very easy to sync up Spotify and Pandoro accounts and regularly bluetooth to the device as well.
I've noted if you're using the bose app to set volume, then use your phone volume buttons, the sound it suddenly increased significantly, you have to think about whether you're using bluetooth or the app, otherwise things get very loud.
Yes, I recommend this product.
