List of Bose portable audio products

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The portable audio products sold by Bose Corporation have been marketed as the SoundLink models. These wireless speaker systems are battery powered and play audio over a wireless connection from a separate source device (such as a computer or smartphone). Most models use Bluetooth to communicate with the source device.




The first SoundLink product was released in 2009[1] and used a USB wireless transmitter plugged into the computer to receive audio from the computer (using a proprietary protocol— not Bluetooth).[2] The system included a remote control. Reviewers criticized the high price of US$550.[3][4]

SoundLink Mobile

SoundLink Mobile (first version)

The SoundLink Mobile was released in 2011 as a smaller, battery-powered model.[5][6] It used Bluetooth to communicate with the source device.[7] Reviewers praised the unit's audio quality, but criticized the high price and lack of a microphone (to enable its use as a speakerphone).[8][9]

The SoundLink Mobile was replaced by the SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II, sold from 2012 until 2014. It included a rechargeable battery that was rated at up to 8 hours of playback at moderate volume levels.[10] The rear of the device includes a 3.5 mm auxiliary input.[11] The appearance is very similar to its predecessor,[10] with the biggest change being the folding arrangement of the front cover.[12]

Reviewers praised the updated version for its audio quality and high volume for a compact device, but criticized its high price and the lack of a speakerphone function.[10][13][14][15] It was classified as an Editors Choice' product by PC Magazine.[11]

SoundLink Mini

SoundLink Mini

The SoundLink Mini was released in 2013 as a smaller model below the SoundLink Mobile. It weighed 0.7 kg (1.5 lb).[16] Reviewers praised the sound quality and build quality, but criticized the lack of a microphone.[17][18][19][20]

The SoundLink Mini II replaced the SoundLink Mini in 2015.[21] This featured the same sound quality and shape as the original SoundLink Mini with a few subtle changes. Firstly the controls on the top of the speaker changed from 6 to 5 individual buttons, removing the mute button and AUX button (The speaker changed to AUX automatically when it received a 3.5mm input) and added a multifunction button which could perform a variety of functions such as play, pause, and answer calls (due to the added speakerphone capability). The other major change to series 2 was the change from DC charging to USB charging, which provided a more convenient charging solution. The USB charging port also allowed the user to install software updates through when available. The SoundLink Mini II was quietly discontinued in late 2018, favoring the newly released Revolve and Revolve+. However, due to high production numbers, it was still readily available as of late 2019.

On 31 October 2019, Bose announced the SoundLink Mini II Special Edition. This featured the same design as the standard edition. However, it featured a better battery, which was capable of 12 hours of playtime and chargeable in 4 hours, as well as a USB-C port. The Special Edition is available in 2 colors, Triple Black and Luxe Silver.

SoundLink Revolve

After a successful performance of earlier models, Bose has launched the model Revolve and Revolve Plus on 13 April 2017. Some salient features are immersive & 360 degrees sound, water-resistant design (IPX4), durable, seamless aluminium body, NFC pairing for secure connectivity to your NFC-enabled devices.

The speaker's bottom has some connections that can be used with a charging cradle that can charge the speaker without connecting a charging cable.[citation needed]

SoundLink Color

SoundLink Color

The SoundLink Color was introduced in 2015 as Bose's portable Bluetooth loudspeaker.[22] It was battery-powered, and charging was via a micro-USB port.

The original Soundlink Color was replaced by the SoundLink Color II in 2016,[23] which had a slimmer design and remains on sale as of June 2019.[24][25][26][27]

SoundLink Micro

The SoundLink Micro was released on 21 September 2017. To date, it is the cheapest and smallest Bluetooth speaker offered by Bose. Even with its small size, it can be pretty loud. The main body is made up of silicon rubber, making it extremely durable and IPX7 water resistant. It is available in 3 colors: Blue, Black and Orange. A new addition to this series comes with a tear-proof strap on its back, which can be strapped onto bikes or backpacks. It supports Google Assistant and Siri as well.

This speaker uses a Micro USB charger with a charging cable included in the box. It has a battery life of 6 hours when fully charged.

Bose SoundLink Micro

With an output of 5 watt, it can easily power a small gathering.

Soundlink Flex

The Soundlink Flex was released on 21 October 2021.[28]
