Bluetooth speakers are all the rage this year, and the colorful SoundLink Bluetooth Speakers from Bose are hard to resist. Gone are the days when pairing the Bluetooth device was a hassle, Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth speakers ensure it's done via voice prompts. These speakers come in Black, Blue, Red, White and Mint color schemes. Weighing just 1.25 lbs, they are sturdy and deliver strong audio performance with a battery life of up to 8 hours. There is also an auxiliary input to connect other audio sources like a MP3 player too.
Performance: This is one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers for those who want to pay a bit less without losing sound quality. Some users have commented that the lows get a bit lost, but the highs and mids are excellent. You get surprisingly good bass from this little speaker, and the volume is very high considering its compact size.
The battery life on this bad boy is 8 hours, which is at the high-end of industry average. The upgrade to the Color II solved the battery draining problem that plagued the original model.
If you're looking for a "no fuss" Bluetooth speaker, this is your most reliable option. The moment you turn it on, it instantly pairs with your Bluetooth device, and there's no need to wait for the connection. It's quick and easy to set up right out of the box and Bose delivers a beautifully functioning sound system.
Features: There aren't many features with this speaker: simply the Bluetooth connection, quick USB/wall/car charging, and a feature that remembers the last eight devices it was paired with. It's designed to switch between multiple devices quickly, so you can have two or three phones, tablets, and computers playing music one after the other without having to wait for each to connect.
The power, source, and volume buttons make it easy to control the speaker, but you can also control it via your device. The plastic shell is surprisingly durable and can handle a lot of daily use, though the finish attracts lint and dust. The upgraded Color II has added water-resistance to its design, so you can use it near/around the pool, lake, river, and ocean without worrying about damage.
Price:This is the slightly cheaper alternative to our top pick--a whole $80 cheaper. The $120 price tag makes it a good option for those who want good sound without paying top dollar, and though it doesn’t have all the features you get from the Bose SoundLink Mini, it's a very reliable speaker that gets the job done!
