Bose SoundLink III Review
The Bose Soundlink Bluetooth Speaker III is the speaker that brings your music to a whole new level - and without a single wire. The Bose Soundlink III is quite possibly the best Bluetooth speaker on the market. It plays music better, louder, and clearer than others you can buy, and the wide array of optional covers lets you find the perfect look for your own décor.
If you are a sports fan, you can take your pre-game activities to another level with the Soundlink III NFL Collection. Get a Soundlink in your choice of team logs to personalize and let everyone know who you root for.
The Bose Soundlink Bluetooth Speaker III are attractively styled in silver and black. They measure 10.08” (25.6 cm) w x 5.18” (13.15 cm) h x 1.89” (4.8 cm) d. The Bluetooth wireless range is 9 meters, and the rechargeable battery lasts about 14 hours. They also have an auxiliary input, micro USB port, and charging port. The Soundlink III is similar in size to the previous model, but battery life has been improves, as well as the audio, according to Bose.
The Soundlink III has a flat base that doesn’t require you to use a separate stand. That makes positioning it a breeze. You can get a zippered optional cover for it in a multitude of colors, or NFL logos. While it does have volume controls, aux input switching, and a mute button, it does not come with a pause or skip control - that has to be done through your Bluetooth device.
Linking your Bluetooth audio device to the Soundlink III is easy. Simply press and hold the Bluetooth button on the top of the speaker, then choose the Soundlink Mobile Speaker III from the options listed on your audio device. The speaker will remember the last 6 devices you connected to, so re-connecting is simple and fast.
The Bose Soundlink III has a full speaker set, with four drivers and two passive radiators housed in the sleek case. They are engineered to give outstanding full spectrum audio with crystal clarity. Bass performance has been optimized, and processing of the digital signal has been tweaked for louder volume and better sound.
The Bose Soundlink III charges with the included home adapter, but there is an optional car charger as well, for charging on the road. Unfortunately, you can’t charge through the micro USB port. That is only used for firmware upgrades.
One thing that is a bit annoying is the auto shut off feature. The unit will automatically shut off after a few minutes of non-use, and you need to actually turn it back on - simply re-pairing it won’t cut it.
Bose has hit the mark with the Soundlink Bluetooth Speaker III. It has a clean, techy look with basic colors in stock mode that allow it to blend into any décor, or dress it up with a color coordinated cover. The sound is typical Bose quality, with enhancements over the previous models. Battery life is very good, and if you listen continuously until the battery gets to zero, you should probably get some sleep as well. Controls are easy to understand, and it connects fast to your devices. All in all, it is a great addition to your audio equipment list.
