Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III


The Bose SoundLink III is a solid replacement of the Editors' Choice SoundLink II, with powerful, clear sound in a functional, portable body.

Warm, full sound across a variety of music genres. Long battery life

Great sound, lacks power.


I like using this while working out but it needs more muscle. Considered the dr. dre and klipsch products but they did not offer a rechargeable battery. Still a nice compact system for sitting out back or at a picnic table.

Needs more oomph
