Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth Speaker II Becomes Water-Resistant

October 13 2016, 03:10
Bose announced a new member of its iconic SoundLink Bluetooth speaker family: the SoundLink Color II. This time, the main reason for the update was to introduce a more rugged water-resistant design, and new colors, maintaining the same quality sound of the original. The new Bose Color II speakers offer an even better combination of performance, durability and fun than its predecessor, making it ideal to take just about anywhere.

The new Bose SoundLink Color II connects wirelessly to smartphones and tablets to play streaming music and packs a punch using Bose’s proprietary dual-opposing passive radiators which convert vibration in a powerful output, maximizing every inch of its small enclosure. At about 5” wide and high, and 2” deep - and weighing just 1.2 pounds - the Color II defies its size, playing loud, low, and clear.

The improved durability of the Bose SoundLink Color II allows for an IPX4-rating for water-resistance to withstand pool splashes, spills, or getting caught in the rain. The new soft-touch silicone exterior has a great look and feel, and helps absorb more dings, drops and bumps. And the choice of material also allowed for new colors- Aquatic Blue, Coral Red, Soft Black and Polar White.

Integrated NFC technology offers touch-to-pair convenience, and set-up is fool-proof with plain-language voice-prompts. It features a built-in microphone for taking calls and accessing Siri, Google Now, and other phone VPAs. The lithium-ion battery will last for up to eight hours and is fully rechargeable via a USB port. The super-streamlined Bose Connect app allows connecting and switching between devices, update software, and more.

The SoundLink Color Bluetooth Speaker II is available in October for $129.95.
