Bose SoundLink Color: A truly portable Bose

First off, this item does not need any more reviews. It has plenty. But I feel I need to write one because, while there are a lot of reviewers who “get it” there are many who do not. This is a portable speaker. It was designed to be taken with you. It is *not* meant to replace your home theater system. So, to be fair you should only be comparing this speaker to other portable Bluetooth speakers. OK, so now we’ve got that out of the way. Here is what I was looking for when I set out to find a worthy replacement for my previous Bluetooth speaker – I wanted a good-sounding speaker that was portable enough, and rugged enough that I could take it with me when I travel, to the beach, on my deck, in my garage, in my workout room, and even as a tail-gating music source. Notice that I did not mention anything about replacing my home theater system!

With all the Bluetooth personal-size speakers on the market these days, it can be challenging to figure out which one will best meet your needs. Because of its portability and oversize sound, 

the clarity of this bluetooth speaker gives me a perfect alternative to headphones for audio books

I am impressed with the quality of sound, almost overwhelmed, considering that it is portable. The range of reception from an iphone 6 is twice what I expected (it is clear and uninterrupted at 35 feet through a wall). It can be configured for voice or any audio format I play. If I’m wanting deep bass, it’s there for me. All of my observations are relative to it being competitively priced and compact. I am an older retired person with diminished hearing; the clarity of this bluetooth speaker gives me a perfect alternative to headphones for audio books.

Blows the Mini Boom out of the water! I have had my Logitech Mini Boombox for two years as it still stands as an amazing speaker. Until I was playing this the Bose Soundlink Color in stores. I was so amazed how great sound and bass came from this speaker. The Mini Boombox held quite a good bass/ tremble quality for it’s size. But I far most enjoy the Bose Soundlink even it is double the size. Very happy with my purchase.

Best sound from Bluetooth speaker I’ve heard

I reviewed hundreds of Bluetooth speakers before buying the Soundlink Color. I even listened to a few more at local stores or those which colleagues had bought. But, none of then were the Soundlink. I still hadn’t found one that I was willing to pay for as the sound just wasn’t worth it my opinion. Then I read the reviews of the Soundlink and found it for the prime price of $99 with free returns. So, I said what the heck do I have to loose. It is a Bose after all and I can return it.

Exactly what I was looking for, and for the right price.

When I first purchased this item, the unit I received couldn’t hold a charge. I processed my return through Amazon a couple of days later (after testing the battery a few more times) and received my new unit before I even had the first one in the mail! Superior customer service with immediate action. That second unit has been a dream…
