Bose unveils new SoundLink Bluetooth speaker III; promises better sound, longer battery life
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 new SoundLink III integrates Bose proprietary technologies to reproduce music with
fullness, clarity and depth. Four neodymium transducers and dual-opposing passive radiators
combine with a new digital signal processing algorithm and improved electronics to play
louder than its predecessor, while maintaining balanced and natural sound at higher listening
The SoundLink III is engineered for durability and grab-and-go use. Its new industrial design is inspired by the SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker -- sturdily built, with curved edges and a thin profile that eliminates the need for a built-in cover or stand. A silicone button panel protects from dirt and dust, and a wraparound metal grille resists fingerprints. For personalization and added protection, new accessory covers are available in gray, blue, green, orange and pink.
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. 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.
