Bose SoundLink Revolve+ Series II - Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Bose SoundLink Revolve+ Series II

Compact Size, Big Sound

Unlike traditional Bluetooth speakers, the Bose Soundlink Revolve+ II features one large, downward-facing driver. The biggest benefit of this unique 1-driver setup is how compact the overall speaker can be. Measuring in at 7.25″ tall and 4.13″ wide, it’s easy to carry or fit in a bag.

      The downward-facing driver faces an omnidirectional acoustic deflector that pushes the sound out evenly. To put it simply, it produces 360° of premium sound, making it the perfect centerpiece. Plus, under the grill, it has 2 passive radiators that give the mid and low ranges a nice boost.

Ready For Anything

     Don’t let looks deceive you. The Soundlink Revolve+ II is the best way to take Bose’s signature sound anywhere.

     With the tough rubber bumpers, it’s safe from minor falls. The upgraded IP55 dust and water resistance makes it a little more durable compared to the first Soundlink Revolve+. On top of that, the convenient flexible fabric handle is a nice touch.

Is It Worth The Upgrade?!

     I don’t like the fact that for the premium price, we’re still only getting Bluetooth 4.1, IP55 waterproof, and only 2 color options. If you own the first Soundlink Revolve+, it’s probably best to sit this one out.

     The only big upgrades are the water resistance and one extra hour of battery life, it’s more of a lateral move…

Conclusion

      On the other hand, the overall audio quality makes up for the deficiencies in a big way. 

     On top of all that, the SoundLink Revolve+ II has some nice luxury features. Connect wirelessly to another SoundLink speaker for stereo sound or multi-room mono playback. There’s even a 1/4″ threaded hole on the bottom for camera tripods, GoPro mounts, and other compatible stands.

     The Bose SoundLink Revolve+ II is perfect for audiophiles on the go. You get premium Bose audio quality in a compact and durable device.
