Overview

Our take on the Bose® SoundLink® Color Bluetooth® speaker II

“Awesome!” “Amazing!” “Fantastic sound!” Our customers raved about the original Bose® SoundLink® Color Bluetooth® speaker. They should find even more to like in the updated Bose® SoundLink® Color Bluetooth® speaker II. It puts out a big, bold sound and comes in a variety of fun colors. And it's water-resistant, so you can enjoy music anywhere from the ski slopes to the beach. The soft silicone exterior of the SoundLink® Color II makes it easy to hold, as well as protecting it from dings and jolts.

Just the right upgrade

JCBR from Mayaguez, PR on 12/2/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a grand upgrade to the original Soundlink Color. Just the right sound with speech off the TV thru the AUX input. My music out of my phone by Bluetooth sounds incredible for such a small speaker, however, nothing like the sound of my Bose Mini II. For the price, it is just the right speaker size to carry around on trips I am very satisfied with the ease of connecting from my iphone with all my music, classical thru latin. One favorite spot of it is while listening to music while out in the backyard. Great sounding gear for the price. ...and I understand that it can be used with a second speaker for stereo.

Pros: Nice feel To the touch.

Cons:

Compared to Original Soundlink

Robert from Ketchum, ID on 6/26/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I own several Bose products and purchased this as a Father's Day gift for my Father in Law. First, it's well built and the Bluetooth pairing is very easy and much easier than the original Soundlink. The rubberized coating will protect it well and the weight makes it easy to tag along. The mids and highs are very clear and it's surprisingly loud so I give it a good rating on overall sound. The bass is a little bit light for my taste and is definitely not as good as the original Soundlink in comparison. For the price and size it's a great product but don't purchase this as an upgrade to the original Soundlink.

Pros: Great Mid and High Good Bass but not as good as the original Sound Link Bluetooth connection is very easy and is much better than the older model

Cons: Bass is not as strong as the original Soundlink.

Crutchfield customer from Linesville, PA on 6/13/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I can't believe the sound that comes out of this speaker. I come from a time when you needed a set of speakers as big as refrigerators to get good bass response. I'm not sure how they get that response in a unit that can't be moving much air but it works.

Mitchell from The Colony, TX on 11/12/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice BT speaker, perfect for little outings and pool/spa outings. Sounds amazing for such a small sized unit.

Pros: Affordable Compact Sounds great

Cons: Volume is a little wonky. Normally the device playing music controls the speaker volume, but not on this one. Found that turning the volume all the way up on this speaker then controlling volume from the playback device works best.

Great quality

Jodi from Oxford, CT on 10/30/2017

Chris from West Chester, PA on 8/18/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product. Puts out fantastic sound quality. We have used on the beach and at the pool side. it has been wet (accidentally) and it lives up to its waterproof claim. I would recommend this to anyone in the market. If you take it to the beach, I encourage you to cover the ports with scotch tape. Keeps sand out of port.

Pros: Sound quality Lightweight Great bass Reasonable pricing

Cons: No port covers.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I recently bought two of these terrific speakers--one for my wife and one for me, and we are both extremely satisfied with them. They were very easy to pair with our iPhones and iPads, and they have the great sound quality we both expect from Bose. They are simple to move around and feel very comfortable and secure with their silicon-covered exteriors. We love them and have already recommended them to a number of friends.

Kelly from Long Beach, CA on 6/13/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It is not a surround sound home theater system. It is a small, portable speaker. And it works great! The sound is crisp and clear, decent bass (great for such a little thing), easy to use and very portable, holds charge for plenty of time. I like it. Can't imagine why someone wouldn't.

Pros: Sound quality, bass, portable size, lightweight, long battery life, adorable.

Cons:

Awesome sound in a wireless portable speaker!

Fred J Neslage from Rogers, AR on 6/12/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have long been a Bose speaker fan, but I never knew that they made wireless portable speakers. This Bose Soundlink Bluetooth II speaker is absolutely awesome. I read about this product while browsing Crutchfields online catalog. I was looking for a wireless speaker to use with my Apple tablet and phone. The Bose Bluetooth portable speaker was a Memorial Day weekend special. Knowing that Crutchfield stands behind the products they sell, to include lifetime support, I purchased the Bose Soundlink Bluetooth Speaker. This little speaker easily fills our living room full of beautiful sounds. It is easy to pair with a tablet or phone. We use it outside on our deck or anywhere we want music. Now I am looking to purchase a couple of Bose wireless speakers to use with our flat panel tv in the bedroom. I would not hesitate to recommend these speakers to all our family and friends. Try one, they sell themselves. The Bose Bluetooth Wireless speaker is also perfect to take on vacation or outings. Just because you are away from home doesn't mean you have to do without world class sound!

Pros: Awesome sound. Portability. Super easy to program.

Cons: None

Features

Rugged, Water-Resistant Design: The SoundLink Color II features a durable soft-touch silicone exterior and a water-resistant IPX4 rating. Its rounded, compact shape fits easily into your bag or backpack. What's more, you can choose the speaker that best matches you with one of four colors - Aquatic Blue, Coral Red, Polar White or Soft Black.

Passive Radiator Design: The Bose SoundLink Color II portable Bluetooth speaker utilizes dual opposing passive radiators that pump out a lot of sound. 

Voice Guided Pairing: Voice prompts talk you through Bluetooth pairing, making it simple to wirelessly connect your Bluetooth-enabled source device to the Bose SoundLink Color II. The SoundLink Color II keeps track of the last eight devices to have paired and connected with it, dropping the least recently used when a new one is paired. Your Bluetooth-enable devices can be paired either via SSP or NFC.

  • SSP (Simple Secure Pairing: With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), the SoundLink Color II will search for and connects to the two most recently connected active Bluetooth-enabled devices. However, it will only receive audio from one device at a time.
  • Near Field Communication (NFC): The Bose SoundLink Color II supports NFC pairing. NFC is a technology that enables Bluetooth devices to establish wireless communication with each other by simply tapping the devices together.
Note: Once paired, the Bose SoundLink Color II will automatically re-connect with your Bluetooth source device when in wireless range (up to 30').

Wireless Music Streaming: Thanks to the support for Bluetooth A2DP & AVRCP, you can stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth source device to the Bose SoundLink Color II. You also get basic playback controls - like Play/Pause, Volume Up/Down, and Previous/Next Track from the SoundLink Color II's top-panel buttons. The Bose SoundLink Color II has a range of approximately 30', so you can enjoy your music without wires.

Note: If you are using a smartphone and a phone call comes in, your music will be interrupted until the phone call ends. Once the phone call ends, your music will automatically resume.

Hands-Free Speakerphone: The Bose SoundLink Color II also features a built-in mic, so you can use the SoundLink Color II as a speakerphone for your smartphone. The built-in mic will be used to carry on your side of the conversation, while the other party is heard through the SoundLink Color II's speaker. You can use the SoundLink Color II's top-panel controls to answer, end, and reject calls. The SoundLink Color II can even access the voice dialing functions of your smartphone and audibly indentify incoming callers (when applicable).

Digital Voice Assistance: The SoundLink Color II's built-in mic can even act as an extension of the microphone in your Apple iPhone 4S or newer, or compatible Android smartphone, so you can access Siri & Android's digital voice assistant.

Bose Connect App: With the free Bose Connect app for Apple iOS 8.0+ and Android OS 4.3+, you can manage all of your connected Bluetooth source devices with an intuitive graphic interface that lets you switch between devices whenever you want. From the app you'll also receive software updates, product tips, and be able to personalize settings.

Aux Input: The SoundLink Color II has a rear-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting a external portable audio source other than your Bluetooth-enabled device.

Rechargeable Battery: The rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 8 hours of playback time. Using the SoundLink Color II's microUSB and included microUSB-to-USB cable, you can charge the battery from a free USB port on your computer or a USB-AC power adapter (sold separately). It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the built-in battery.

  • Protection Mode: When your speaker is unplugged and unused for more than three days with a remaining charge of less than 10%, it enters battery protection mode to preserve battery power.
  • Auto-Off: Your speaker powers off after 30 minutes of inactivity (no sound coming from your speaker) while operating on battery power.
Note: Use a 1000mA power source for the best charging experience. Using a power source with less than 1000mA may result in a slower charging time and you may not be able to charge while playing audio.

Placement Options: For optimal performance, place the back of the Bluetooth speaker near, but not directly against a wall. Bass response decreases as you move your speaker away from a wall. You should keep other wireless equipment at least 3'away from the speaker to prevent interference.
