Available in three color options -- black, white smoke and stone blue -- the Flex is IP67 dust- and waterproof. It also floats, an important feature if you're in the habit of dropping your Bluetooth speakers in your pool or another body of water. I personally wouldn't want to drop it anywhere, but Bose says that thanks to its soft silicone back and powder-coated steel grille it "won't peel or flake and is resistant to corrosion and UV light." So it's designed to be durable and can survive small drops.
I compared the SoundLink Flex with several other compact portable speakers. The one that it seems to get compared to the most is the JBL Charge 5, which costs $180 and is also fully waterproof with an IP67 rating. The Charge 5 is a bit bulkier and puts out a little more sound. Its bass is bigger but arguably boomier and more forward so the mids, where vocals live, can sound a little recessed. The Bose has a better overall tonal balance and the bass has more definition. I preferred its sound overall. Both speakers lack EQ settings in their apps, so you have to go with their signature sound. That's fine by me, but a lot of people like having some sort of EQ settings to play around with.
Play your music wherever you are. No matter what you're doing. Weighing in at just 0.54 kilograms (1.2 lb), SoundLink® Color II is just a little heavier than a football. And using it is a breeze. Control multiple functions with the press of a button, like answering calls on speakerphone, skipping tracks, switching between connected devices and more. And you can take SoundLink® Color II along for day trips without missing a beat of your music. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 8 hours of playtime.
Sure it has other features (speakerphone, party mode) and it comes with an app. Instead of getting overwhelmed with features, though, Bose just wants you to listen to music, anywhere you can carry the speaker to.
The SoundLink Mini II replaced the SoundLink Mini in 2015. This featured the same sound quality and shape as the original SoundLink Mini with a few subtle changes. Firstly the controls on the top of the speaker changed from 6 to 5 individual buttons, removing the mute button and AUX button (The speaker changed to AUX automatically when it received a 3.5mm input) and added a multifunction button which could perform a variety of functions such as play, pause, and answer calls (due to the added speakerphone capability). The other major change to series 2 was the change from DC charging to USB charging, which provided a more convenient charging solution. The USB charging port also allowed the user to install software updates through btu.bose.com when available. The SoundLink Mini II was quietly discontinued in late 2018, favoring the newly released Revolve and Revolve+. However, due to high production numbers, it was still readily available as of late 2019.
I had the same problem. Solution: 1. Reset the speaker holding mute for 12 seconds and turn it on 2. Go to the iPhone bluetooth setings to unactivate or delete the bose soundlink Bluetooth 3. Turn the Bluetooth off 4. Turn the bluetooth on 5. Wait 5 seconds and it will detect the speaker again
I have a problem to connect my device in the soundlink wireless speaker. The bluetooth is blinking all the time. I tried to reset and still the Bluetooth is blinking. Could somebody have an idea how can I have my soundlink wireless work????
Everytime I try to connect a different device to the soundlink I have this problem. Supposedly it is meant to connect to eight devices but I have foun that you get one and then you need to reset if you wish to use another. Another exanple of BOSE hype. Disappointed.
Hey thankyou. Was soo very frustrating. The clearing bose from my ipad and resetting helped though not the resetting of bose. Wonder why this happens though! You saved me my shop visit. Many thanks once again. Love.
I have a problem with a bose soundlink mini. My problem is. I charge it up. Yeah fine. I connect to my phone. I play a song. And sometimes i get 30 seconds play amd it resets itself. Sometimes it can be an hour or longer. Very tempremental. I went in to the bose store and they reset both system and bluetooth. I played it gor a while. Got home 20 minutes later and it rest again. It pissin me off. I dont wanna send it back because i will have to wait 2-3 weeks for it to be repaired and i just cant wait that long. My personal opinion on the matter is it could be a faulty battery. Because when i put it on charge it filled up. And i noticed while it was still plugged in the green LED which is normally solid was blinking yellow/green. If any one could shed some light on the situation it would be a great help as i dont really want yo wait 2-3wks because i doubt they are going to give me a replacement while mine is being repaired.
If I turn off the bose power button the music STOPS on the windows media player and you have to press play on the media player to get it to play again but again it only plays through the computer speakers.
I also am having the same 3 flashing lights and the speaker switching off by itself while playing. Sometimes it happens very frequently like every 30sec sometimes it can go days without it happening. I sent it to a bose service center twice! they told me there was nothing wrong. But the problem still persist. Anyone knows what the problem is?
I hardly ever use my sound link and only for the occasional use in the garden (once every 2-3 months approx at best) so it not had a lot of use since purchasing upon its release 2-3 years ago. Not happy!. Just to add, i can t even find where a software update or complete reset can be done online, to see if that clears the fault.
In order to solve the 3 Lights on issue with sounlink mini U just have to NOT SET VOLUME IN 100%, even 99% will help, this is an issue that i hear some other where, try it out for some time now and it works just fine, remember just DONT SET VOLUME TO 100%
I have a Bose soundlink ii. I have the red blinking issue. Have also had the speaker not turn on when I press the power button which was resolved by placing it on the charging stand to charge for a few seconds. Once on the charging stand and taking it off straight away it says the power was 80%. Theres definately a glitch in the software. Expected better from Bose for the price.
Only when I connect it directly to power, it is able to connect to my android by Bluetooth but no sound. If I turn android bluetooth off, Bose unit reverts to blinking red light so bluetooth connection keeps it in some state where it does not go to this red blinking phase.
Soundlink 1 When plugged into mains bleeps and flashes yellow then red continuously. Bluetooth works ok. updated to latest firmware and reset with mute button several times. Please advise if it is the battery thats had it where can I buy a new one. Thank you.
My problem was my iPhone and iPad would not pair with my sound link 3 but they would both pair ok with my sounddock10 the soundlink3 would also pair ok with my iMac tried the reset nothing happened the forget this device then re pair worked a treat.Thanks so much!
So I bought a new battery for my bose bluetooth speaker. The red battery light is flashing. I did the 4 hour charge and it still flashes. I did the reset and it still flashes. Is this a problem with something else? I dead calling bose but I guess I have no choice.
