Bought the Soundlink Revolve, I was really contemplating buying the Revolve +, but they say size matters and it does. The + was just a bit too big to take on vacation. I travel quite a bit for work and the Revolve was just what i needed. The sound from this little guy is amazing. Kudos to Bose! I also bought the charging dock for added convenience. Then I saw the Bose connect had a feature called party mode or use them as L/R stereo speakers. So of course I bought another one and WOW! The Bass is not window shaking earth rattling, that is taken care of by my Bose lifestyle system at home. I use a spare Dslr camera case to transport these little guys. And yeah when I'm out of town in the hotels I'm sometimes told to turn them down, but even hotel staff was amazed that the sound they heard was coming out of these 2 little speakers. I know I got a little carried away but it just goes to show the power of these speakers. So far I own Soundlink mini II, QC-15's, 2 pairs of QC-35's (the wife wanted some too after watching me sleep like a baby on the plane, lol) Bose companion computer speakers and Bose lifestyle surround system for the family room.
What an amazing wireless speaker... but to be honest I expected nothing less from a Bose product!! Aside from the sound which is extremely clear and the fact that I can hear it in the front room when it is being played in the back of the house, I love the accessibility and how easily portable it is. I also loved the Bose Connect app and how easy it connected to other music streaming aps that I listened to the music through. All in all a very quality product that I highly recommend!
Let me start by saying that I have a few other speakers to compare this model to. These include: Amazon Echo, Echo Bose SoundTouch 10. These are all in the same genre of speaker I would say. Please see the picture for a side by side comparison.
First the size: it is about the size of a soda can. It actually has a very solid weight to it. It's surprisingly heavy for it's size. Definitely not cheap feeling!
The sound: I have to say, this thing is VERY impressive! It sounds incredibly clear and has plenty of bass to fill out the sound. The volume is fantastic! It gets loud enough to very clearly fill a modest sized room. I haven't used it outside yet, but I would imagine it has plenty of volume for use at the beach.
If you like having music next to the pool, then the splash resistance is yet another plus.
The sound completely destroys the Echo Dot. No comparison. My larger Echo is currently in storage, but based on my memory this is much clearer sounding than that Echo.
The SoundTouch 10 of course gets louder and has more bass. It is the same price as this speaker, but doesn't have the splash resistance nor the rechargeable battery. So this speaker can fill a gap that the SoundTouch 10 cannot.
In summary, this speaker is pricey but well worth it. It is built very durably with a good weight and quality. I have no doubt that this will serve you for years to come!
The sound is best in class. There is no comparison to other speakers of similar size.
Do yourself a favor and buy this speaker! You won't regret it!
I received this speaker mid April. I wanted a good speaker that wasn't too big and bulky but gave quality sound. When I say this speaker has far surpassed my expectations. The sound is amazing. You wouldn't think a small speaker would pack such a big punch. I use this speaker ALL the time when cleaning, working out, resting, showering lol, etc. you name it and I use it. The design of the speaker is cute and small and can be discrete if you want it to be. It was very easy to use just connect to Bluetooth and it recognizes the device and let the fun begin :) I have purchased Bose speakers before but they're bigger than this. I am pleased with the speaker and I have no complaints. I would definitely recommend this speaker to anyone that wants small but powerful. I would like to get another one for my daughter.
Over the years, I have been a massive fan of Bose and their products. This wireless speaker is one of a kind. After spending the past few weeks with the Bose Soundlink Revolve, I have been very pleased with the product. This product delivers such crisp and clear sound. I love how it is a 360-degree speaker, it fills the room with sound without focusing it to one direction. The bass is impressive, but could be a little bit stronger. But it does such a spectacular job combing the bass, midrange, and treble. The design of the soundlink revolve is very upmarket looking. It has a nice weighty feel, and it feels very sturdy and well made. In addition, the battery life is impressive. I got it to last for a good 12-13 hours before recharging. Operation and setup is very straight forward. I would absolutely recommend this to a family or friend that is looking for a high-quality Bluetooth speaker. So, if you are looking for a portable, well built, sleek design, and fantastic sounding 360-degree Bluetooth speaker, the Bose Soundlink is just for you.
I love music period! My music library is extensive, with over 3k songs across pretty much all genres. Some times its smooth jazz, reggae, classical, easy listening, hiphop, rock and roll, R&B, and so on. Now I've had every Soundlink BOSE has offered, beginning with the Soundlink I; so this review is going to be straight forward.
Again I LOVE MUSIC, so I want a speaker that produces crystal clear notes across the highs, mids, and lows, and fills whatever area (room/outdoors) I'm currently occupying. So I'm more interested in a speaker that delivers “complete balance” and not necessarily projects more bass, or mids., I like clear, natural, and loud notes that give you a great experience. I also use it when watching movies, cutting the grass, and taking a shower. In other words, I never leave home without it!
Now for the review…the Revolve Plus is BEAUTIFUL, in fact, the website pictures don't do it justice. Its light weight (lighter and louder than my Soundlink III), impressive volume, and crystal clear! It has other whistle and bells I won't mention in this review however, they're more “added value” as opposed to sound quality. As well, I won't be able to provide any objective feedback on battery life, although I did do a complete charge, and 8 hours later, its still going strong.
So here's where the review gets disappointing. I did a “side by side” sound quality comparison between my Soundlink III, and the BOSE Revolve Plus, and the results where surprising. While the Revolve Plus is noticeably louder than the Soundlink III, BOSE comprised on “complete balance” to increase the volume. In all fairness, both speakers were placed against the same wall, set to the highest volumes (minus 1 notch), using the same computer, same songs, and in my humble opinion, the Soundlink III wins. Yes that's correct. The Soundlink III delivers a more complete sound quality across the music notes, all crystal clear, with a touch of deep bass. Just enough to be distinctive without drowning out the rest of the range. On the other hand, the Revolve delivers the same crystal clear sound quality, at a much higher volume however, the touch of bass is more appealing on the Soundlink III. Yes its there on the Revolve, Just not as good as the Soundlink III.
So all you Soundlink III owners, DO NOT rush out to upgrade to the Revolve Plus unless you're like me, and just want a 2nd speaker that's more portable than the Soundlink III. Which by the way, now belongs to my wife (she's very happy!) Overall, I'm happy with the Revolve Plus and plan to continue enjoying my music library!
Yes it speaks. Once you turn on it speaks out battery status. It tells the device name it got connected/disconnected to as well which is pretty handy feature. Strong built. I have had a similar JBL speaker but with the sound quality of Bose that doesn't stand a chance. Sound is crystal clear even at high volume.
I have owned my SoundLink Revolve for about a year now, I use it everyday at work. I had no problems and was VERY happy until a couple of days I used it unplugged until I depleted the battery to 10%. I plugged it into the wall and left it charging all night. The battery is no longer holding the charge and now I cannot longer use it unplugged.
