Deep. Loud. And immersive, too. SoundLink Revolve II is a portable wireless speaker from Bose that’s engineered to deliver true 360° sound for consistent, uniform coverage. Place it in the center of the room to give everyone the same experience. Or set it near a wall and sound will radiate and reflect around the room, immersing you in that same feeling you felt at your favorite show. The tapered cylindrical shape makes this Bluetooth speaker easy to grab and go. Its durable aluminum body provides worry-free protection, and its water- and dust-resistant design (IP55 rating) lets you keep the party going, even if it gets splashed by the pool. The rechargeable, lithium-ion battery plays up to 13 hours — for full-day listening. Voice prompts talk you through wireless Bluetooth pairing, and you can easily take calls with the built-in speakerphone. You can even access your device’s default voice assistant right from your speaker. Connect the speaker to an Amazon Alexa-enabled device, like the Echo Dot, for even more control. Pair two SoundLink Revolve speakers in Party Mode for more performance. Try Stereo Mode where instruments and vocals will naturally separate and spread across an immersive soundstage — making your music sound and feel as you know it should. Bose SimpleSync technology lets you pair the Bluetooth speaker with a member of the Bose Smart Family to play in sync. The Bose Connect app helps you manage your devices, unlock features, and access future updates. You can easily charge the speaker via Micro-B USB port. And the auxiliary input allows you to connect to other audio sources. This mobile speaker is available in Triple Black or Luxe Silver. Included: SoundLink Revolve II Bluetooth speaker; USB cable; wall charger.

    I just picked this up to replace a Klipsch BT speaker I’ve used for over 10 years.Why do I own a BT speaker and how do I use it? I’m a photographer and knowing the model’s music preferences, and having a service like Apple Music or Spotify, allows me to play music during the shoot to help put them at ease and bring out a bit of rhythm to help with posing, especially flow posing. Carefully adjusting the playlist can help bring about desired body language and facial expressions.The sound isn’t great but it’s very, very good, with a prominent midrange and inoffensive treble with sufficient baritone and bass notes. It’s been tuned well for its size and should work well with most any genre of music. Despite being designed and advertised as “360 degree sound,” the tweeter is clearly front-biased while either a port or passive radiator is rear-biased.Listening to Duffy “Rockferry” and Caro Emerald “Deleted Scenes From the Cutting Room Floor” both sound great. I’m not ashamed to break this out for a studio portrait or conceptual art shoot.The buttons could be better labeled with the industry standard rather than proprietary choices, but once you figure it out, it’s fine. I don’t need the water resistance but it’s nice knowing it’s durable. The exterior of my Triple Black unit is delightfully understated. Battery life is serviceable… I’d expect a unit of this size to have at least double the advertised runtime, so a charging base is already in the shopping cart. The lack of USB-C quick charging, especially in this latest, version II release is a huge letdown.The inclusion of a 1/4”-20 thread in the base, the standard thread for photography, is a huge boon, especially for photographers and using while outdoors as it can easily be mounted on a tripod or light stand for better sound performance.Ultimately, it all comes back to sound. It’s far better balanced than the Beats Pill and is able to be played at full volume, unlike the Beats, of which the bass heavy tuning causes the full range drivers to rattle and flutter at full blast. While the Revolve II is clearly directionally biased, it’s not as bad as unidirectional speakers like the Beats Pill. I’m able to set this up on a tripod in the studio, connect Apple Music, set volume to half and never have to touch it again as the sound is delivered in all directions.For the price, it’s one of the better portable BT speakers available. If you need more volume and higher fidelity, I’d recommend the Plus version, as it is large enough to accept Bose’s signature tuning and does sound better overall. However, for my purposes, the non-Plus version fits perfectly in my camera bag, alongside my lenses, making it perfect for studio and on-location use.It’s the best collection of compromises for the price point and sounds almost as good as it looks. The sound is actually so mid-focused and clean, I’m considering buying a second one to use in stereo with my iMac, just plucking one off it’s charging base whenever I head out to the studio or location.If you want a $200 portable BT speaker, you’d be crazy to buy anything besides this, unless you’re an uncompromising bass head. If that’s the case, buy a Sony and avoid the Beats Pill.

    I purchased this Bose Soundlink Revolve series II to replace an older UE Megaboom that was no longer holding a battery charge.First of alI, I was impressed by how easy it was to pair the bluetooth with our Android phones and our Samsung tablet.The controls are easily accessible on the top, and fairly intuitive. I also purchased the companion charging base, which certainly is not a necessity, but is convenient, and not outrageously priced.I was a little surprised at the diminutive size; this unit is much smaller than the Megaboom, with far less pronounced bass, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The Megaboom was just that – “boomy”. The Bose is much tighter in the low end and due to its size and weight, is easily portable.To my ears, the sound is pretty much omnidirectional as advertised. I walked in circles around it with music playing and did not notice any real hotspots or dead zones. Fairly even spread.Now let me state what this is NOT: Loud. If you are looking for a party speaker that will make your local DJ envious, this is not the product you are looking for.My wife and I are musicians, and we own professional sound equipment that will shake the walls and rattle the windows. I did not buy this Bose unit to do that. I wanted something that would allow us to have background music playing at a small gathering, while not overpowering normal conversation, or for when my wife and I are sitting on the patio by the firepit listening to oldies. For this use, it is perfect! Enough volume to clearly hear the tunes, but not so loud as to bother the neighbors.Battery life is advertised as “up to” 13 hours (and the Browns may win the Super Bowl). That’s far longer than we will likely ever need, and I haven’t tested its limits yet. In fact, we leave it on the charging base most of the time. Personally, I’ll be happy if it gives us four hours of battery play time.In summary, it’s Bose…legendary quality and distinctive “Bose” sound. If you’re not a confirmed, Bose-hating audiophile, or expecting a PA system, this little thing could be exactly what you’re looking for!My verdict: Recommended.

    Before Christmas my son asked for “big speakers” for his room. There’s very few large style speakers available with blue tooth. We have loved another portable Bose speaker so I purchased this one knowing that the quality would be there but wasn’t sure on the loudness. This thing is banging! The sound is amazing, it’s small/portable, and connects to the kids alexa pod so they don’t have to connect a phone or ipod to it. My afternoons are now filled with video game noises, “hey alexa play….”, and AC/DC blaring from the kids landing. Well done Bose!

    I expect a lot when I purchase a Bose product. It doesn’t disappoint. Great sound quality! Clarity is key.

    Great SoundThe sound is wonderful. Easy to connect. Can’t comment on how it will work outside because haven’t had the chance to use it outside.

    Excelente!Qualidade absurda, a marca BOSE não decepciona! Apesar do tamanho tem uma equalização incrível no ambiente, supera as expecatitvas! Único ponto negativo são os comandos de voz que saem da caixa, qualquer telefone que conecta ou avisos de bateria fraca ela anuncia no som e interrompe a música…
