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

 

An almost perfect blend of sound quality, portability, and reasonable price

Great Sound quality, water resistant, good battery life

Rubber coating sometimes hangs onto dust

The Bose SoundLink Color II strikes a near perfect balance of sound quality, portability, and price. Sure, you can get slightly better sounding or more portable speakers, but the Color II is such a great blend that we doubt anyone will be disappointed...

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.

Bose SoundLink Color II review

  (Rating Hidden)

The second generation of a hugely popular Bose wireless speaker, the SoundLink Color II arrives amid huge expectations. The American audio stalwarts are renowned for top-quality audio, but its speakers haven't always performed impeccably in our tests....

Must Have for Camping Trips

Dissatisfied

 

Received for a Christmas gift. Already own a pair of QC2 headphones, so I'm familiar with Bose products. I am thoroughly disappointed with the sound quality. It seems Botse spent so much energy ensuring they could get good bass out of a small enclosure...
