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

Somewhat pedestrian design. Highs are slightly less crisp than before

Whatever you may think of Bose, the company makes some excellent Bluetooth speakers. Its previous two models, the SoundLink Mini and SoundLink II, both earned our Editors' Choice in their categories for putting out a surprising amount of warm, clear...

Bose SoundLink Bluetooth speaker III

 

The III is similar in size to the previous two generations of the speaker but changes its design, and improves its battery life, and according to Bose it also plays louder and sounds better.

The Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III sounds great for a compact Bluetooth speaker, playing louder than its predecessor and offering much better battery life. It also has a sleek and sturdy design, an auxiliary input, and the option to swap out...

The speaker is pricey and has no speakerphone capabilities; requires dedicated AC adapter for charging (doesn't charge via Micro-USB).

Though it remains somewhat pricey, the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III is a superlative portable wireless loudspeaker, improving on its already impressive predecessor.

Bose SoundLink 3 review

 

The Bose SoundLink 3 surpasses its predecessor in nearly every way, but the price tag might put it out of reach for some music lovers.

Bose Soundlink III

 

Power at a price

Warm, rich sound ; Real loud ; Solidly built ; Powerful battery

Expensive ; Bass bias ; Drab looks

The Bose Soundlink III expects a sizeable amount of money for a portable Bluetooth speaker. There are options that offer much more value for money but if money is not a concern, then the Bose Soundlink III won’t let you down.

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.

The Bose SoundLink III is a worthy follow-up to the Editors’ Choice SoundLink II, offering slightly bigger, slightly warmer sound that presents plenty of detail and texture across the spectrum. If you want to spend a little bit less on a Bluetooth...

Great!

 

Love the Bose! Sound quality and build is excellent. Inability to link multiple speakers together is one drawback. Love the sound though!
