Sounds flat and weak. Despite using the equalizer adjustments - music is not crisp - clear - powerful. Not what I was expecting. I've heard better sound quality from cheaper devices.

Great little speaker

Have had this for about six months. Sound is amazingly clear and crisp. Tend to use it more than my 1000 dollar plus home stereo system for ease of use and the ability to run apps like Spotify. Great for sitting around the camp fire relaxing. Id give it five stars if it packed a little more punch volume wise. Going to buy a second Bose for true stereo, party mode.

Questionable Quality

Purchased this speaker 2 weeks ago and used it for the third time and it simply stopped working. Fully charged and tried connecting to other BT devices. No sound at all. Waited 20 minutes on hold for Bose customer service and tried all resets I had already tried with no result. They advised to return it to the store. Lets hope the next one is better!

Not Enough Bass / Not Worth the Price

Not Enough Bass Not Worth the Price not even included the charger block just cheap USB.

  • from Caledon, ON

It’s good but...

6 hrs of play time was all I got out of it.. not 8.. which sucks because I bought it for work, and now I have to carry the charger around with me..

  • from Ottawa, ON

Issues with USB port

4 months in and the USB port died. My cable charges my phone no problem. Many other users reporting a similar issue on the Bose website

  • from Vancouver, BC

Not worth the price

When you get logitech Z623's for the same price you will see its not worth it, its just a tiny bluetooth speaker

  • from port moody, bc


we all grew up hearing different sound systems and Bose was always a good name. I let my buddy who is an audiophile play with it. He wasn't a Bose fan but is now. Besides the great quality of product, the sound is amazing. no hiss as I have experienced with low quality bluetooth speakers. I would recommend this speaker to anyone looking for great sound and quality.

  • from Richmond, BC

Packs a Punch!

after working at an electronics store for a few years, I can say that bose's portable speakers have a depth of sound that no other speaker packs. This little guy is so powerful, fills up the whole room with sound, and very easy to carry around. enough bass to get the party started!

  • from Bella Bella B.C

Great Little Speaker

OH !! What Sound !! 😎👍

I've always heard how good Bose speakers were as I remember them back in the 80's for threater sound . This little wonder is totally awesome !! Worth every penny . Very easy to setup and simple to pair it to your phone . The outside covering is a great idea for protection from water . The quality is wonderful , the sound is almost surround . I recommend this item 👍

  • from Scarborough, ON

Very nice speaker

Can anyone tell me if they know the wattage of this speaker?

  • from Mississauga, ON

NO charger!!

This is my second soundLink Color and was surprised that for the same price as the older one they cheaped out and didn't include a charger for the speaker! Buyer beware Sound quality is amazing for the size

  • from Kitchener, ON

Love this little guy!

What an incredible little speaker! The sound quality is incredible it's super easy to pack and carry around for wherever you need some sound in your life! I've used it in the shower, love that it's splash proof - I did buy a warranty however, after reading lots of reviews that mentioned battery issues. Hoping it's never a problem!

  • from Langley, BC

A very impressive speaker

I recently bought this speaker and was very impressive by the sound quality and bass that this speaker produces. Don't let the size fool you! Set up was easy and the battery charged in a couple of hours. First impression are very good.

  • from Toronto, ON

Outstanding little thing

This is the best small speaker on the market. The sound is brilliant for such a small speaker gives a big big punch of sound for such a small thing. light to carry around and even put in your bag. fills a small room with such sound quality my friends are amazed my its sound. I tried out other speakers but this one is outstanding in design and especially in sound. Worth every penny thinking of buying another on to pair up. Another great Bose product.

  • from Toronto, ON

Stopped working after a week.. TWICE

Upgraded my Bose I to this one HUGGE MISTAKE. Stopped working within the first week. Yes I did the whole reset etc etc got replacement. SAME THING. emailed Bose as well they will do nothing but send me a replacement that is "guaranteed working condition" for what a week? Will be switching brands for sure.

Excellent Till 30 Days Ago

Bought this unit to listen to while outside. Excellent till mid-January 2017. Voice said "Battery Low ReCharge Now" As usual I plugged in the USB cable to the wall outlet and to the unit and nothing happened. Voice repeated battery low imessage. Swapped out the cable and adapter same result. Found a blog with instructions to hold down mute/play button and while holding button down remove the AC power, release button, reapply power and turn on and it worked. Then was advised to update firmware thru Bose site which I did and worked fine. Next time I got the low battery message a few weeks later, repeated the process all ok. Third time last night did not work after repeating the process. BOSE support no help. Had battery tested, all ok. I have been a BOSE customer since 1974 2 pair 901's and 3 pair of WIRED computer speakers which work fine. Very disappointed!!!

Used in Group Fitness Classes

I use the Bose Soundlink Color II as my main sound source in Group fitness classes and in rooms as large as a basketball court. This speaker's predecessor, the Soundlink Color served faithfully for over two years (someone recently "borrowed" that speaker from my unlocked car). The sound is bold and crisp and never distorts even at full volume and handles all genres of music. At night I use it to stream Baroque music at home. Some of the rooms where I teach have wired-in multi-speaker PA systems but my class participants actually prefer the clearer and perfectly articulated Bose sound. In the larger rooms I teach in a round with the speaker (and me) in the centre of the room and participants (up to 40) in a circle.

I bought this for my husband, as he requested, and it is such a fabulous little speaker. The sound is really so clear and excellent and this was much to my surprise. This is great value and nice and compact and far better than a few older speakers that we have that are much larger and you would think would be better sounding but nope. This little beauty is awesome.

  • from Toronto

Love it!

Our daughter bought it for us for Christmas. Easy for us seniors to set up; super simple. Great sound, size, design. Very happy with her choice.

  • from Montréal

  • from Orillia

  • from Quinte West, ON

Do Not Buy

This speaker sounds good but has many reviews on other sites where it fails to charge after a short period of time. This happened to me and all I can say is that I am very disappointed. This speaker should be recalled or Bose will lose many faithful customers.
