Bose Connect app

Download the free Bose® Connect app to your iPhone®, iPad®, or Android™ smartphone or tablet and turn your device into a remote for the SoundLink® Revolve. With the Connect app, you can pair two SoundLink® Revolve speakers. They can play two-channel stereo, or you can have them both play simultaneously for double the volume.

And you can pair two devices to your SoundLink® Revolve at the same time. So you and a friend can take turns playing tunes through the speaker and keep the music flowing.

The Bose® Connect app makes setup and operation easy (smartphone not included).

Simple setup and control

Voice prompts talk you through the Bluetooth pairing process, making setup fast and painless.

So you can control it without touching your smartphone.

Simple charging

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great speaker for the intended purposes (I.e. at the bbq or outside dinner) with excellent sound reproduction and easy to use. I was worried about some of the negative reviews I read online regarding the unit not working or not charging, I have none such issues. MyBose Quietcomfort headphones by comparison have been working flawlessly for over a year now, I would expect the same here.

Pros: Small size, easy to use, great sound

Cons: None yet

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Awesome product,sounds terrific for the size. Would have only taken 1/2 star away but unable to split stars. Only issue is the interface is somewhat frustrating. One of the reasons I chose these speakers, I have two,so I could do party mode. You have to name your speakers in the app to keep them straight but there's no way to physically tell them apart when looking at them. Being wireless and able to be moved all over makes it very easy to switch them up. Getting into party mode is clunky, should be easier to do. Usually takes at least 5 to 10 minutes to get the speakers behaving the way I want them to. Like many Products I find that the app and software are lacking in comparison to the actual speaker.

Great for Professional presentations, Garden & Shop

william from Fayetteville, AR on 4/15/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm reviewing the smaller Bose Resolve: Great for portable podcast/music listening when I'm working in the garden or my shop, or in professional presentations for a small group or board meeting. Since I move around so much when I'm working, the 360 degree coverage is perfect for me. The ability to hear my podcast or music clearly no matter where I am works great. Sound reproduction is clear and loud no matter the location of the speaker. Really pleased with the product. Plus, it's simple to use, and extremely well-made so I can use it outdoors without fear of damage. And this is the smaller resolve....very portable. There are many durable cases available for this specific product. I'm really satisfied with my purchase.

Pros: Sturdy, well made, easy to link my iphone. This could easily be used for presentations on a conference table. I will definitely be traveling with this unit. Plus I mostly use it in my garden and shop.

Cons: If you carry your iphone in your pocket while using this, your body can block the signal.

A nice little package.

I am 61 years old and purchased my first Bose product about 3 years ago. Started with a Mini-SoundLink and then a 2nd Mini SoundLink. Loved the sound. Last Christmas I purchased a SoundTouch 30 and two SoundTouch 10's. Love the sound. This Christmas I purchased a SoundLink Revolve for my home office and love it. Easy to use. Great sound.

Anonymous from Enid, OK on 1/5/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for my son for his birthday. It's a good wireless speaker, but it isn't even close to my Bose Soundlink that I use around the house. My Soundlink is a few years old, probably cost a bit more at the time, but it is far superior to his new Revolve speaker. The only thing these Revolve speakers have on the previous generation Soundlink is the 360 degree sound. Other than that it is my opinion that the old one happens to be better. Free shipping, no tax & I had Crutchfield points to use though so I'm happy.

Solid! The speaker feels like it means business and, for such a small package, the sound is great. Can't say anything bad about this speaker. The Bluetooth is easy to set up and then future connections are just automatic. Like you've read they are supposed to be!

Pros: Solid build; solid sound.

Cons: About a 12-hour battery charge.

Unbelievably awesome! We take this camping and also use it on our back patio. The sound is great from a small, portable speaker - 360 degrees! No one can believe it! And to set up - easy! Haven't tested waterproofness yet - but sure the kids can help with that.

Pros: Sound - awesome. Size - awesome. Ease of use - awesome.

Excellent sound from a small device that carries in all directions over a good distance. We used this camping at the ocean and on the beach and had no problem hearing our selections outside. The base came through loud and clear. Inside, company thought I had the large stereo speakers on!

Pros: Size, base, sound, portable, ease of use.

Cons: Stereo sound.

Amazing sound quality in a small package. I previously owned the Bose Mini Soundlink and was looking for an upgrade. The sound quality does not disappoint. I recently took the Bose Revolve with me on a beach vacation and it was perfect- very portable and splash resistant. I also noticed that it does not get hot, even when in the sun all day. Highly recommend if looking for great sound in a portable speaker. Battery life is great too.

Pros: Portable Great sound quality

Cons:

The sound quality is spot on. Classic Bose fullness. My only issue is the battery charge life. Advertised as up to 12 hrs. In my work invironment, I have to play it at full volume, therefore it's only good for 5 hrs.

Features

360° Full-Range Sound: The Bose SoundLink Revolve utilizes a highly efficient transducer for full-range sound, dual-passive radiators for deep lows with no unwanted vibrations, a pressure trap to eliminate any imperfect noise to keep the sound smooth, and an acoustic deflector for an omni-directional experience. All this adds up to true 360° sound for consistent, uniform coverage.

Water & Bump Resistant: SoundLink Revolve's water-resistant design means you can use it more places without worrying; like at the pool, in the bathroom, or by the kitchen sink. With extensive testing and an IPX4 rating, Bose has ensured the speaker will long outlast an accidental showering of water. Thanks to its soft-material exterior, you don't even need to worry about knocking it over, tossing it in  your bag, or sitting it down a little harder than you meant to.

Note: The SoundLink Revolve is water-resistant, but not waterproof. The speaker should not be submerged in water.

Voice Guided Multi-Device Pairing: Voice prompts talk you through Bluetooth pairing, making it simple to wirelessly connect your Bluetooth-enabled source device to the Bose SoundLink Revolve. The SoundLink Revolve keeps track of the last eight devices to have paired with it, dropping the least recently used when a new one is paired. It even allows you to keep two Bluetooth source devices connected at once for easier switching between devices (however, it will only receive audio from one device at a time). The Bose SoundLink Revolve will automatically re-connect with an already paired Bluetooth source device when it is in wireless range (up to 30'). Your Bluetooth-enable devices can be paired either via SSP or NFC.

  • SSP (Simple Secure Pairing): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), the SoundLink Revolve will search for the nearest Bluetooth-enabled devices to pair with; without the need for complicated pin-codes.
  • NFC (Near Field Communication): The Bose Revolve supports NFC pairing. NFC is a technology that enables Bluetooth devices (such as Android) to establish wireless communication with each other by simply tapping the devices together.

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 Revolve speaker system. You also get basic playback controls like Play/Pause, Volume Up/Down, and Previous/Next Track from the SoundLink Revolve's top-panel buttons. The Bose SoundLink Revolve 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 Revolve also features a built-in mic, so you can use the SoundLink Revolve 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 Revolve's speaker. You can use the SoundLink Revolve's top-panel controls to answer, end, and reject calls. The SoundLink Revolve can even access the voice dialing functions of your smartphone and audibly indentify incoming callers (when applicable).

Digital Voice Assistance: The SoundLink Revolve's built-in mic can even act as an extension of the microphone on your Apple iPhone 4S-up or compatible Android smartphone, so you can access Siri & Android's digital voice assistant (like Google Now).

Bose Connect App: The Bose Connect app (for Apple iOS 9.0+ and Android OS 5.0+) gives you quick access to the key features like the auto-off timer, volume control, and battery readings. Plus, it's the easiest way to manage multiple Bluetooth connected devices. From the app you'll also receive software updates, product tips, and be able to personalize settings.

Stereo & Party Modes: For those times when one Bose SoundLink Revolve isn't enough, you can use the Bose Connect app to pair two SoundLink Revolve speakers together. You can select Party mode to pair two Revolve speakers together for double the sound. You can select Stereo Mode to naturally separate and spread the sound across an immersive stereo soundstage.

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

Top-Panel Controls: Top-panel controls include Power, Pairing, Input, Volume, & Multi-function. The Multi-function button provides Bluetooth music playback functions (such as Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track), as well as Bluetooth hands-free phone functions (such as Voice Control/Digital Assistant Activation, Answer/End/Reject/Mute Call, and Device/Speaker/Call Switch).

Placement Options: Place it in the center of the room and everyone gets the same experience. Or, set it near a wall and sound will radiate and reflect around the room, immersing you and your guests. A 1/4"-20 threaded insert on the bottom of the speaker lets you attach the SoundLink Revolve+ to just about any tripod (sold separately).

Rechargeable Battery: The rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 12 hours of playback time. Using the SoundLink Revolve's microUSB input, the included microUSB-to-USB cable, and the supplied USB/AC power adapter you can charge the built-in battery. It takes approximately 4 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: The speaker powers off after 30 minutes of inactivity (no sound coming from the speaker) while operating on battery power.

Optional Charging Cradle: An optional charging cradle (018RVLVECC, sold separately) keeps the SoundLink Revolve charged and ready. It's a convenient home base for your speaker, and you can play your music while it charges. Just plug the wall charger and microUSB-to-USB cable included with the speaker into the cradle.
