    A perfect price for a big brand

    I have to admit that the sound is impresive on this small speaker. I read a lot of the reviews from other people who purchased this item and also purchased the $199 model and compared them. Most of them say that there is a difference. I tried both at the store, and I can't see much difference, aside of price. I'm no expert with speaker but for the price, this speaker is worth every penny. I was very close to buying the expensive model and I'm glad I went with this one instead. This is a much lighter speaker than the other so it will be perfect for traveling.

    I was looking for a Bluetooth speaker for my office and quite pleased with the Bose product. I have been a fan of Bose for years and have a home theater system. The size is right and, though there are several color options, I ordered black. The speaker is a breeze to set up and only takes a minute. Sound quality is very good. I only wish the bass, which is substantial for a small speaker, could be controlled separate from the volume. Note that going close to the maximum recommended phone-to-speaker distance range will result in spotty transmission. This speaker is a keeper.

    I wanted a little Bluetooth speaker to have while sitting in the backyard each evening. I know Bose is a good product, read reviews and made the decision to choose this particular model. I ordered the turquoise since it cost less than the other colors, and I was a bit skeptical of the quality. Well, I can't be more pleased with this speaker! It charged quickly and immediately paired with my IPhone. The sound is fantastic. I'd highly recommend this product. No, I'm not a professional reviewer nor highly techy. I'm just glad to share my opinion.

    I research for weeks buying anything. The Bose Soundlink speaker consistently got positive reviews. Luckily at my local Best Buy they had the Soundlink and several other portable speakers. The sound on the sound link speaker was excellent. The sales girl connected her phone to it within 30 seconds. True to form it took me less than one minute to connect my phone when I got it home. I've also connected my tablet. The sound is very good and you do not get that tiney sound you get with cheaper speakers. I use it in the house and out on my deck . I recommend buying this speaker

    As with many Bose products, you have high expectations with sound quality and the Soundlink is no different. It delivers quite a punchy sound for something so small. The controls are easy to use and paired with my phone's BT without issue. I was hopeing the Soundlink would have controls to change songs, instead, just basics as play, pause, vol up and down. Depending on bluetooth device and version, you may experience a half-second delay with video and audio in Youtube. It's portable, holds up up well on a small charge, cost effective and great sound makes this a Best Buy.

    The most I like is the quality of sound, I was looking to have a portable speaker while training sessions and Bose really overpass my expectations about quality of sound in a little box, now that is only the beginning I just take my speaker with me and wireless works great, rechargeable battery provides me with at least 3 hrs workout session with no issue at all. The color is nice to me and the size is easy to carry. I love this speaker.

    Purchased this for mother in law for her house and we used on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We set it up to stream from Pandora so we had all the christmas songs going straight to the speaker via Bluetooth. NOw since, when i go there on Sundays for dinner she is rocking out to her easy listening with the speaker as opposed to the old boom box/cd player/radio she had.. She has called us countless times to thank us for the PERFECT gift... The sound is amazing and it is so portable and easy to setup she is 75 years old and figured it out with our help within 10 minutes

    Good little unit. I went into the store set on buying a different brand. After consulting with an employee, the convinced me this was the better unit eventnough it cost substantially less. I have no regrets, and two weeks later when I found that extra 50 bucks in my wallet I was doubly pleased. Typical bose quality. It may not be the best at any one thing but when you add it all up, it's a winner. Will accept 2 connections. Yhe only thing I wish Bose offered was a case that would accommodate the charger and cable for longer trips/vacation. No complaints.

    This is the second Bose Soundlink Color that I've bought in the last year. My daughter has used hers for the past year quite extensively and has even allowed me to borrow it when I'm doing projects around the house. Bose sound is the best and the small profile of the speaker really works well when you're moving around your house or the garage. It's highly portable and holds a charge quite well. Never had a problem synching up a device over Bluetooth. This particular item was purchased as a gift for my wife and she absolutely loves it. Highly recommended!

    After listening to many Bluetooth speakers at different stores I always found this one the best sounding to my ear, even when compared to other more expensive speakers( including Bose). After using this for several weeks now I am still extremely happy. Sounds great, has decent but not overpowering bass, feels very sturdy and well made, good looking to my eye without looking gimmicky, and the battery seems to last a long time between charges.

    I absolutely LOVE this speaker. It has so much power and the sound from this fairly small speaker is amazing. I've always been a fan of Bose and Im so happy I purchased this. I couldn't be happier with it. The only issue I have is that sometimes when i'm listening to music from my phone it breaks up if my phone is not close to the speaker. It can be very annoying sometimes, but nevertheless still a great product! I even got my mom one and she loves it just as much as I do. I would highly recommend. I can't wait to use this in the summer outside.

    There are so many bluetooth speakers out there, it' shard to decide. This one has out performed my expectations. Bluetooth connected, with an AUG option to plug in other devices, charges up and you can take it on the go! There is rubber surrounding the buttons so when you take it out, sand and other things don't get around the buttons. And the sound....well, it's Bose...so that probably speaks for itself but just for safe measure...it's wonderful! Very loud for a small speaker and the bass is great!

    Big Sound from Portable Bluetooth Speaker

    I was looking for a smallish, inexpensive Bluetooth speaker to use with my iPad. At my local Best Buy store I was about to buy a competitive model, but one of the staff suggested this Bose model. She set up a demo unit for me to listen to, and I was immediately impressed by the sound quality. It hit almost all of my important features: Great sound quality, reasonable size (fits in my iPad bag), micro-USB charging, pairs with two devices at once. If you're looking for a small speaker, pass up the Beats and Jambox and get this one. You won't regret it.

    I have several small speakers and they serve the purpose for certain things but for real quality full sound this little guy beats them all. Being Bose you expect quality, I personally thought the sound of this unit was even better than the larger Bose units in the store - not by much, but better. The portability is sweet. It fits in a small compartment in my computer case to take along on trips. I recently did just that, set it up on a work table and was most pleased with the sound. Simple set up, simple to use - I use with my I phone 6 and iPad.

    The performance is poor. I wish I never brought it, although. I like the convince of wireless. Traveling room to room with my music is very nice. However the quality of sound the loudness does not to me meet Bose. I have Bose in the car and the quality and sound is much better. Additionally my biggest problem is the sound actually fades in and out like a wire problem or something. It has only happened a couple of times but it is enough to make me want return the item. It is very annoying. I am glad I kept the box.

      Hello Ladyvee846. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The SoundLink Color is by far our most portable Bluetooth speaker, designed to take with you almost anywhere. For more volume and bass, we also have our SoundLink Mini II and SoundLink III. The SoundLink III is our best-sounding portable Bluetooth speaker with the most volume, bass, and clear highs, as well as the longest battery life of any of our Bluetooth speakers. The sound should not be fading like that though. That is something we would like to help you with. One thing to try is to update the software here: http://updates.bose.com/SoundLinkColor If that does not work, please call us at 800-380-4831. We are available Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 9pm EST and Saturday 9am to 7pm EST. Bose

    Not what I expected from Bose

    Having only ever heard amazing things about Bose products, I am very disappointed in the quality of workmanship of this bluetooth speaker. I have had problems almost from the start with the charger not fitting properly into the Bose speaker, thus the speaker most often does not charge and, consequently, does not work. Very poor workmanship. I cannot recommend this product. Best Buy will not take it back and Bose has already replace the cord once. What a problem for a piece of costly equipment that does not function correctly.

    This has been a surprise awesome gift for my wife. She has loved being able to take her music anywhere instead of tied to TVs, Home Theaters and the weak sound from her phone. I read reviews on Amazon and Best Buy.com and purchased off of user reviews and couldn't be happier. The battery life is exception as well and get quite a few hours of listening time, haven't measured, before needing a recharge. I now have family members desiring this exact same speaker as the audio quality is very good compared to others I have tried.

    Bose is an awesome brand. I have a set of Bose speakers in my living room that's over 20+ yrs old and i love the sound they produce. However I was disappointed in this Bose wireless speaker. I already have another (lesser brand) wireless speaker and I played both separately to compare and unfortunately I could not tell the difference. I felt the Bose speaker did not "fill the room with sound" like i expected. And for that reason I returned it. The reason I gave it 5 stars is because I truly love my 20+ yr old Bose speakers and it is a great product.

    I played with many Bluetooth speakers before choosing this one in the store. This was a gift for my niece and she needed something compact but so many of the speakers sound tinny and cheap. This speaker for the money was awesome. I personally haven't owned a BOSE portable speaker but I have had headphones, and home speakers and they always sounded great. My favorite portable speaker ever though is the Beats by Dr. Dre Beatbox. If you can find one get it! They rock so hard. Also the Klipsch stadium is a power house if you can swing it.

    This speaker brings out fine sounds from all spectrums of MP3/4 players at an incredible price point for Bose. I compared Beats and Sony speakers before buying the Bose Soundlink and found it had deeper base and higher tweet range than other products. It appears clunkier in style, but the sound it produces more than makes up for the styling. It is capable of attaching to multiple Bluetooth devices and announces which ones are connected when you turn it on. Battery life is very good - one session lasted a total of about 8 hrs on over a 24 hr period.
