Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III Review

Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III

Bose is always known for offering great audio quality headphones like SoundLink II wireless headphones and Bluetooth speakers. Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III is another example of excellent craftsmanship. It comes with great improvements over the predecessor. Let’s have a close look at its features.

Build and Design

Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III looks sleek and measures about 5 x 10 x 2 inches. The design is plain and there’s nothing great about it. Although Bose tries to spice up things by offering accessory covers but otherwise bland design. The silicone top protects it from dirt and dust and the metal casing makes it fingerprint-free.
On top left of the device, there are power, Bluetooth and auxiliary-input buttons and the right of the device features the volume control and mute. On the back, there’s an auxiliary input for connecting non-Bluetooth devices, a micro-USB and a dedicated AC adapter port.

This Bluetooth speaker is robust and comes with appealing sound. Pairing with Bluetooth test devices is a smooth process and the speaker will remember the device after the initial pairing. The speaker is easy to use and keeps connectivity simple. There’s a small battery-icon that indicates how much charge remains. The sound quality is extremely well-done and it boasts a pair of wide-bandwidth transducers on either side. The sound always remains clean and devoid of any annoying vibrations. Though the speaker is quite heavy but at the same time, it is compact enough to carry in a backpack.

Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III comes with a good battery that lasts for about 14 hours. The battery life is impressive but the only downside is that wall charger is necessary. There’s no option to charge via USB. The device features a USB port at the bottom but that is for service and firmware updates. It connects wirelessly to your iPhone, iPod, iPad or other Bluetooth devices. You can also check out the top Bluetooth speakers of 2016.
