  • Clear, Crisp Sound Quality
    Reviewed by Byrd - November 23, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was amazed at the sound quality produced by this small, portable, Bose Soundlink Flex Bluetooth Speaker. I have always wanted a Bose speaker because I've heard good things about their quality and sound, and this one did not disappoint! You download the Bose Connect app (which has in-depth information about the speaker and other Bose products) to your phone and connect to Bluetooth after first charging it with the included USB cord. Connecting to Bluetooth was very easy and the charge lasts for a long 12 hours. Once connected, it lets you know how much charge you have left before it needs recharged. It works like any other Bluetooth device and lets you receive and answer calls without problems and can connect to other Bose speakers for a surround sound effect. It is a very impressive durable, waterproof, and dustproof speaker that can be easily transported. But I was most impressed with the sound quality and the volume when used outside with family around a campfire. It can get really loud and the sound is still crystal clear. I felt like I was at an outdoor concert. My son was also able to easily sync his phone to the speaker. I highly recommend this speaker if you enjoy listening to music outdoors no matter whether you are at the beach, camping, or just barbecuing in your backyard. As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for" and this one is worth the extra expense for the quality sound it produces. I love it!! I was able to purchase this speaker at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion.

  • Great Bose Speaker for All
    Reviewed by atxn512 - November 23, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have always loved Bose sound products over the years and purchase them often. I recently obtained the new Bose Soundlink Flex Bluetooth portable speaker. I was impressed with how easy it was to sync it with an iPhone and Android phone at the very same time. The ease of operation was a major plus for this portable speaker. I downloaded the Bose Connect app and was on my way to getting the most out of the product. I was pleased with the rich sounds that were produced on the speaker. I used it to play music during work that I used to only have on headphones. It was great to give my ears a break from earbuds and have a rich background of great music playing endlessly on the Bose speaker. My friends were impressed with the sound quality of the speaker when I showed it to them. I was able to play different genres of music and have great balanced sound in all settings. I would highly recommend this speaker to my friends and family. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for your honest opinion.

  • Outstanding Sound & Beautiful
    Reviewed by JBTechfanatic - November 10, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Meet the all-new SoundLink flex from Bose. It's a beautiful, great sounding and wonderfully built. A Bluetooth speaker that you will definitely want with you anytime. It's a great portable way to enjoy your music, favorite podcast, or even use as a speaker phone. This feature packed device is one of the best sounding speakers I've heard in its class. yet it's still rugged enough to take it to the beach and not worry about it being damaged. I love it's Water proof and a rugged design. And the fact that it still looks flashy and sleek for even the pickiest person. And don't worry, it's full of features like USB type-c charging port. Bluetooth with 30 ft wireless connectivity range. The ability to connect with other flex speakers for multi-room audio. You also have the ability with built-in mic to use this as a speaker phone or voice assistant. Sync it with your assistant and your contacts on your cell phone. And don't worry if somebody calls. While you're enjoying your favorite tunes, you'll be able to chat with them with no problem and pure quality. As the new sound flex is a true extension of your mobile device. I also must mention that Bose position IQ detects orientation and optimizes the sound so it doesn't matter if it's hanging from your backpack or if you have it on the counter. You're always going to get the best sound quality and it really works. And who could guess you can get base out of such a small product that sounds distortion-free and you get 12 hours of battery life. My opinion is check it out as soon as possible. It's an outstanding product that I highly recommend. I received this product at a discount for my honest review.

  • Another Solid Bose Speaker
    Reviewed by WillD - December 9, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As an owner of many Bluetooth audio speakers, including multiple Bose speakers (three Soundlinks included), I was not disappointed in Bose's newest addition, the Soundlink Flex. The SoundLink Flex continues the legacy of great-sounding Bose portable Bluetooth speakers – big sound in a small package. I love my Soundlink Micro for biking and listening to music on the beach, but it was time for an upgrade, and the micro, while impressive, was never going to blow anyone away with its sound. The Flex is a perfect upgrade to the micro. It has much deeper bass and louder overall volume, which makes it better suited for outdoor activities. The highs are also clearer at both lower and higher volume levels. Yes, the Flex is a little larger and heavier, but the included strap makes it easy to attach and carry. The Flex is just as waterproof as the micro, so it is ideally suited for beach activities. I also take I t on my jet ski because it is loud enough to hear. Bose included a few new perks, including the ability to set up the flex as part of a stereo pair with other Soundlink speakers. This excellent feature allows me to connect my Revolve II or micro for some added sound and stereo for larger parties on my patio. The Bose Connect app quickly paired the Flex to my Android phone without any problems. While connected to your phone, the Flex can take calls, and the microphone is not bad if you are relatively close. It also allows you to connect to your phone's assistant to request music or other assistant features through the speaker. I did not notice any Bluetooth cutouts or interference issues. The flex is a fantastic addition to the Soundlink family. Disclaimer: I did receive a discount on this product for my unbiased review.
