Bose is following the huge success of its Soundlink Mini, which we called the “Best Sounding portable Bluetooth speaker ever”, with the new $299 Soundlink III, the latest in its SoundLink product line.
This is Bose’s best-performing Bluetooth speaker yet, delivering a new level of audio performance, an all-new design, longer battery life, and accessory covers in five colors.
The SoundLink® III weighs just 3 pounds, and measures about 5 inches high, 10 inches wide and only 2 inches deep. It includes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 14 hours of listening, so the speaker will play all day long without the need to recharge.
The SoundLink® III streams music wirelessly via Bluetooth® A2DP, with a powerful antenna for reliable connectivity. New Bluetooth LED signal lights make pairing and/or switching a Bluetooth device easier. The six most recently used Bluetooth devices are stored in memory, eliminating the need to pair again. And control is simple: use the buttons on the top of the speaker, or through the smart device itself.
It connects wirelessly to your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth device, instantly allowing you to share your favorite music out loud, wherever you are and wherever you go. The Bose is built tough, with curved edges and a thin profile that eliminates the need for a built-in cover or stand.
The new SoundLink Bluetooth speaker III is available now from Bose for $299.95 at select authorized Bose dealers and on Amazon.com.
Accessory covers are available separately for $34.95 each.
