Bose SoundLink Color II

 

The Bose SoundLink Color II speaker delivers a strong Bluetooth audio experience in a compact, outdoor-friendly design.

Solid audio performance with rich lows and well-defined highs. Easily portable, water-resistant design. Simple to operate. Useful free app.

Not for audio purists or those seeking a huge bass sound. Light on accessories.

For its size, the Bose SoundLink Color II delivers a very solid audio experience, with rich lows matched with crisp highs. Anyone seeking a massive subwoofer-like sound, or a super-accurate sound signature, will need to spend more money on a larger,...

Bose SoundLink Color II review

 

I was a fan of Bose's original SoundLink Color Bluetooth speaker and praised it for being relatively affordable -- by Bose standards anyway -- and sounding good for its compact size. Its mostly improved sequel, the SoundLink Color II, also comes in a...

Like its predecessor, the Bose SoundLink Color is a compact portable Bluetooth speaker that delivers impressive sound for its size (the sound is improved) and 8 hours of battery life. It's now water-resistant and adds speakerphone capabilities.

Bose SoundLink Color II Review

 

It may not be one of the top three wireless speakers in our review, but the Bose SoundLink Color II is an excellent speaker for high-quality audio. It can handle a little splash of water, but it's not designed withstand anything more, so it's best left...

The SoundLink Color II has excellent audio quality.

The battery life is subpar.

The Bose SoundLink Color II’s high-end audio makes it an excellent addition to a dorm or party, but its lack of durability features and short battery life mean it’s not the best choice for adventurers.

Bad Battery Life

 

Bought 2 speakers for my kids for college. Replaced both of them in less than a year because of battery not charging. The replacements are now going out due to the same charging issue and I am NOT going to replace them because Bose can't seem to fix...
