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.

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.

Must Have for Camping Trips

 

Used this puppy on a few camping trips now and its been amazing to have on hand. Its an instant hit when people realize you've brought the tunes with you and I'm very satisfied with the purchase. Strap it on to the back of an ATV and you can still hear...

Portable, great material, size is solid and sound is powerful

Battery life, sticky connectivity at times

Great Sound

 

The sound quality is exactly what I expected from a BOSE product. High fidelity and plenty of bass. The only poor feature is the voice prompts from the speaker. I'm sure I set it to "English" but I can't understand a word that it says - too soft and...

Great item

 

Only criticism would be that I can't find a way to change the sound levels, I don't think this is possible.
