OVERVIEW

Share your music and show your style.

Meet the speaker that brings your music and friends together-with a style that's all your own. The SoundLink Bluetooth speaker III is the best-performing mobile Bluetooth speaker offered by BOSE. It plays louder and longer than its popular predecessor, with advanced Bose technologies that reproduce the fullness, clarity and depth of your music. And a colorful assortment of optional covers let you personalize your speaker.


Pair and play
This compact speaker pairs easily with your smartphone, iPad or other Bluetooth device. It has a range of about 30 feet, so you can enjoy the sound you want without wires. Simply press and hold the Bluetooth button on the speaker's top panel, and then choose the SoundLink Mobile speaker III from your device. The speaker remembers the most recent six devices you've used, so reconnecting is even simpler.


Powerful performance
It's no secret: your music is the foundation for a good time. And this speaker delivers. Four drivers and two passive radiators provide full-spectrum audio and clarity at any listening level. Plus, you'll hear incomparable bass performance not found in other mobile speakers. And improvements in digital signal processing let you share your music louder than the previous versions.


Form and function
Sure, the sound draws a crowd. But this speaker also has a sleek look you'll appreciate. Curved edges and a thin profile make a bold statement. The speaker easily slips right into a bag or backpack. The silicone button panel protects it from dirt and dust, while a wraparound metal grille adds to its durability and resists fingerprints.

  • BOSE's best-performing Bluetooth speaker
  • Play music with fullness, depth and clarity
  • Wireless connection to your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth device
  • Up to 14 hours of music from rechargeable lithium-ion battery

I purchased this unit to replace tinny sounding wireless speakers that either produced distorted bass or some sound frequencies appears to have been omitted. As soon as I turned the unit on, on thing definitely stood out - the sound produced has depth, I can only describe it as a kind of 3D for sound. It plays all audible sound frequencies very well across the board, with a good tone balance realistic to an original recording. This is what sets Bose apart from the rest, it is meant for one to hear the music as a whole, but if pure bass is what you want, this isn't for you, although not window vibrating, it can play pure bass sound for a small area. The reason for 4/5 stars is the fact that the bass tone of the unit does change depending on how it's placed, something I expected all Bose products to have resolved. But even with the tone loss, it's still minimal for those who like to hear the full range of music. Want a kick to the bass sound? Situate the unit close but not against a wall, not in an enclosure. You'd be surprised what a small wireless Bose speaker can do! Overall, this is a great sounding unit, I'm looking with interest to see how Bose improves sound with a limited amount of space within the unit.

Actually, extremely disappointed... I've been purchasing Bose products for years. I have two sets of computer speakers, a Surround sound system for my bedroom, a set of QC in-ear headphones. Just a month over one year ago I purchased a Bose Soundlink II, and aboaultely fell in love with it! It sounded perfect, produced such a magnificent sound (with a powerful bass), rattled my walls, all from that relatively small box. This used to be my favorite Bose purchase ever. Now, after one year the battery lasts an upsetting 5-6 hours, takes FOREVER to charge, and sounds maybe half as loud as It did when I purchased it. I call Customer Support, who's always been excellent in the past, to be simply told 'there's nothing we can do because it's a problem not in my database.' Which is concerning me even more, Bose, the company who boasts so highly of the 'research' to 'improve sound quality' doesn't care about an issue that causes the sound to literally sound half as good as it did when I brought the product, amazes me.. I litterallyused to brag about the products, the customer service. I'm not joking, this is the ONLY company I brag about. (I HATE Verizon, Apple, Comcast...)

Other than the obvious top quality clear sound the best feature was an incredible bass even at low volumes.

Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III:

I just received it today. All it took was to get it out of the box, plug into the outlet, and pair with my phone. Within less than 30 seconds, I was able to start enjoying my music full blast. The sound quality is crisp yet very substantial. Wish I didn't wait that long!

Doesn't Take A Genius To Operate

By Ron

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III:

What an awesome speaker system. Not sure about all the negative reviews. Sounds like they are less adept to setting up the speaker and their devices properly. I had it up and running in less than 2 minutes. Sound is off the charts even at low settings. My living room area is about 1k square feet and it fills the room at less than 1/3 the volume. We have bought other Bose products as well. It definitely beats the pants off Beats!!!

Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III:

I bought the Soundlink III a week ago and am very happy with my purchase. It is very easy to use and the volume is louder than I thought it would be. For what it is intended to be used for it is hard to beat.
