Overview

Meet the speaker that brings your music and friends together-with a style that's all your own. The SoundLink Bluetooth speaker III is the best-performing mobile Bluetooth speaker offered by BOSE. It plays louder and longer than its popular predecessor, with advanced Bose technologies that reproduce the fullness, clarity and depth of your music. And a colorful assortment of optional covers let you personalize your speaker.


Pair and play
This compact speaker pairs easily with your smartphone, iPad or other Bluetooth device. It has a range of about 30 feet, so you can enjoy the sound you want without wires. Simply press and hold the Bluetooth button on the speaker's top panel, and then choose the SoundLink Mobile speaker III from your device. The speaker remembers the most recent six devices you've used, so reconnecting is even simpler.


Powerful performance
It's no secret: your music is the foundation for a good time. And this speaker delivers. Four drivers and two passive radiators provide full-spectrum audio and clarity at any listening level. Plus, you'll hear incomparable bass performance not found in other mobile speakers. And improvements in digital signal processing let you share your music louder than the previous versions.


Form and function
Sure, the sound draws a crowd. But this speaker also has a sleek look you'll appreciate. Curved edges and a thin profile make a bold statement. The speaker easily slips right into a bag or backpack. The silicone button panel protects it from dirt and dust, while a wraparound metal grille adds to its durability and resists fingerprints.

I purchased this unit to replace tinny sounding wireless speakers that either produced distorted bass or some sound frequencies appears to have been omitted. As soon as I turned the unit on, on thing definitely stood out - the sound produced has depth, I can only describe it as a kind of 3D for sound. It plays all audible sound frequencies very well across the board, with a good tone balance realistic to an original recording. This is what sets Bose apart from the rest, it is meant for one to hear the music as a whole, but if pure bass is what you want, this isn't for you, although not window vibrating, it can play pure bass sound for a small area. The reason for 4/5 stars is the fact that the bass tone of the unit does change depending on how it's placed, something I expected all Bose products to have resolved. But even with the tone loss, it's still minimal for those who like to hear the full range of music. Want a kick to the bass sound? Situate the unit close but not against a wall, not in an enclosure. You'd be surprised what a small wireless Bose speaker can do! Overall, this is a great sounding unit, I'm looking with interest to see how Bose improves sound with a limited amount of space within the unit.

Actually, extremely disappointed... I've been purchasing Bose products for years. I have two sets of computer speakers, a Surround sound system for my bedroom, a set of QC in-ear headphones. Just a month over one year ago I purchased a Bose Soundlink II, and aboaultely fell in love with it! It sounded perfect, produced such a magnificent sound (with a powerful bass), rattled my walls, all from that relatively small box. This used to be my favorite Bose purchase ever. Now, after one year the battery lasts an upsetting 5-6 hours, takes FOREVER to charge, and sounds maybe half as loud as It did when I purchased it. I call Customer Support, who's always been excellent in the past, to be simply told 'there's nothing we can do because it's a problem not in my database.' Which is concerning me even more, Bose, the company who boasts so highly of the 'research' to 'improve sound quality' doesn't care about an issue that causes the sound to literally sound half as good as it did when I brought the product, amazes me.. I litterallyused to brag about the products, the customer service. I'm not joking, this is the ONLY company I brag about. (I HATE Verizon, Apple, Comcast...)

Great Product

By gwdetroit

Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III:

I brought to replace my aging Bluetooth speaker and like the sound a lot. You do get full rich sound at lover volumes. If you turn up too loud you do loose some of the bass. There are features that I would have like to see in the speaker like always on. . . It would be nice to wake up to radio or alarm and having track skip buttons would be a huge bonus.

Perfect Size Fantastic Heavy Speaker!

By TK

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III:

This is the best portable Bluetooth speaker by far. Finally the perfect size and I love how heavy the speaker feels for its size. This box really puts out a great deep clear loud sound! It was a little more in price but really worth it. You won't regret this baby.

No replacement wall charger.

By GMa Sparkle

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III:

I received this as a gift. I love the sound it puts out also how handy it is to take places. I one huge complaint is that you can get a replacement wall charger for it. I have checked every where and they are not available. I had to get a car charger and every time I have to charge it I have to run to the car. Such a pain so sometimes I just don't use it because of the hassles. I hope they correct this problem. All I can say is just don't misplace your wall charger!

The Perfect Speaker

By Brandon

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III:

I bought one of these babies on Memorial Day with the intent of putting it in my spa. But first, I took it with me to the beach. It made the entire vacation better...we even took it in the golf cart. When I got home a week later, I reluctantly followed through on my plans to put it in the spa...then immediately bought another one! This speaker is perfect. I have a 400watt Bluetooth soundbar with a subwoofer, but the SLiii is 10x better to listen to music with... it's a very impressive piece of technology.

Fantastic piece of kit!

By Holmesy

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III:

I bought this after trying the new B&O A1 and A2 both of which didn't come close considering their status and higher prices. Tried the new KEF muo which gave very good high pitch quality but struggled to fill a 3x3metre room also had no bass at all. The bose will easily fill a 6x3m room with clarity and a decent kick of bass at a loud enough volume to enjoy. Bluetooth range on my samung s5 has covered up to 25m with a workshop in the way.

Sound Quality

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III:

This cool speaker was given to me as a birthday present by my wife. I have been amazed by the very high quality of the sound in this portable speaker. Battery life is great and I would recommend this to someone looking for a portable but it works just as well for a low cost room speaker as well.

Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III:

I just received it today. All it took was to get it out of the box, plug into the outlet, and pair with my phone. Within less than 30 seconds, I was able to start enjoying my music full blast. The sound quality is crisp yet very substantial. Wish I didn't wait that long!

Good but could be better

By deevel79

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III:

Good sounding speaker but not great. I also have the sounddock portable and the SL3 doesnt stand a chance when put next to the sounddock. I wish Bose made a nylon cover for the SL3 that actually covers the front and back like I have for the sounddock. It helps prevent sand from getting inside the speaker grill holes when at the beach. All in all its a good speaker for the price.
