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.

Soft-to-the-touch finish attracts dusts and lint. No AC adapter included.

Modestly redesigned, the next-generation SoundLink Color is an excellent compact Bluetooth speaker that's water-resistant and has speakerphone capabilities, as well as improved sound.

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.

Legendary Bose Sound!


I agree with most owners about the sound,and ease of use with this model. My only reservation is the lack of an st card slot....then it gets five stars!

Best thing ever!!


In my opinion I think everyone should own one of these. You can take it anywhere and it so convenient. Even though the sound is great for such a small unit I got a bass booster app with an equalizer and the sound was even more awesome.

Broke after 3 uses. Terrible product


I was given this brand new Bose soundlink as a gift 2 months ago. I haven't used it more than 3 times and now I can't even get it to charge. I tried changing charging chords multiple times and still got the same outcome. Complete waste of money

Love This Bose Speaker!


I love my Bose sound devices, so I was excited when I was invited to test the new SoundLink Color Bluetooth Speaker II. It did not disappoint. We use this speaker everywhere: in the house, backyard, out in the wilderness, and it always delivers crisp...

Great when it works!


I bought this a few months ago and listen every night. I have charged it every day until 2 days ago. It would not charge at all. No nothing and dead to the world. I have tried everything I have read about on line and Bose iPhone app.

Small Speaker Big Sound


This speaker surprised me. I didn't think it would be so loud since it's so small. I use the Bose Connect app which lets you adjust the volume and make it even louder. I could hear it throughout the house with no problem and it sounds great outside as...
