Unleash the Power of Connected Sound

For more than 50 years, we have obsessed over making products people truly love. We focused on the small details required to make movies and music sound amazing. Now, we’re adding connectivity to the mix, and there's suddenly so much more our products can do -- but we know we can't realize that potential alone. Come work with us to create a new generation of experiences built on better sound.

SoundTouch Control API

There's no one right way to control a SoundTouch speaker. Click, swipe, wave, speak -- any of these might be best for the listener depending on the moment. By implementing the Control API, your can manage their SoundTouch speakers and listening sessions directly from your innovative interface.

SoundTouch Audio Notification API

It can be easy to miss phone-based notifications at home -- they get covered up by music, or the phone is charging in the other room. On select SoundTouch speakers, the Audio Notification API gives you another way to alert your customers when necessary. We've made it easy to gracefully wake or interrupt a speaker and play a custom audio clip for your customers.
