The SoundLink® Colour Bluetooth® speaker is a completely new SoundLink® design - but is still every inch a SoundLink®. It weighs just 0.56kg, and measures 12.7cm wide, 5.3cm deep and 13.5cm high to fit easily into a handbag, knapsack or the palm of your hand. Bose combined exclusive dual-opposing passive radiators with two high-efficiency transducers for full-range sound, including deep, low-note performance. With its size and performance, the SoundLink® Colour speaker is a small wonder, making out-loud listening undeniably portable, powerful and fun.
The SoundLink® Colour Bluetooth® speaker is so easy to use, you'll be listening in no time. It connects wirelessly to a smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth enabled device, and uses voice prompts - available in several languages - to simplify setup, and identify which source is connected. Turn it off, and the SoundLink® Colour speaker remembers the last eight devices paired when powered back on. It then automatically connects to the two most recently used -- your iPhone®, iPad®, Android®, or other Bluetooth enabled device. Switch back and forth without having to disconnect, reconnect and re-pair. Essential controls are on the product, and for added versatility, a 3.5mm stereo auxiliary input is integrated on the back of the enclosure.
The SoundLink® Colour Bluetooth® speaker outlasts parties and playlists with rugged durability. Using a lithium-ion battery, it can last for up to eight hours of unplugged play time, and fully recharges with most USB power sources in as little as three hours. Its exhaustively tested housing is made of elastomer and plastic and comes in Black, White, Blue, Red and Mint.
The Bose® SoundLink® Story
Bose® SoundLink® speakers have been globally recognised for delivering the category standard for mobile audio. The original SoundLink® Mobile speaker quickly redefined the Bluetooth speaker category in 2011, and was updated in 2012 to offer even better sound performance. In June 2013, the SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker joined the product line, instantly becoming the market leader in ultra-portable options. The SoundLink® Bluetooth® speaker III debuted in early 2014 and pushed the boundaries further - sounding better, playing longer, and still built to last, with a new look and profile, and accessories to add and change colours. Now, new offerings join the family: the SoundLink® Colour Bluetooth® speaker is the most affordable and lightest speaker option, and SoundLink® Bluetooth® headphones extend the line for wireless personal listening.
