Bose SoundLink Revolve / Revolve+ Bluetooth Speakers (2017)

BOSE SoundLink REVOLVE Bluetooth Speaker

True 360 Sound, Dramatically Deeper, Astonishingly Loud

Bose today announced the new SoundLink Revolve and SoundLink Revolve+ omni-directional Bluetooth speakers housed in an entirely new acoustic design. They differ in size and price with Revolve+ being the bigger pricier version that comes with a handle.

Revolve is 6” high x 3 ¼” deep, weighs a mere 1.5 pounds, and provides up to 12-hours of battery life. Revolve+ is slightly bigger for more performance at 7 ¼” high x 4” deep, 2 pounds, and up to 16-hours of playtime. Both can pair through NFC, feature plain-language voice-prompts for fool-proof set-up, and integrate microphones to use as a speakerphone, or with Siri and Google Assistant.

“When SoundLink first hit the market, it took the industry by storm,” said Glenn Gomes-Casseres, director of products for Bose wireless speakers. “We didn’t want to make small improvements to the audio that made it famous. We wanted the difference to be so dramatic, that it would take just one song to hear the best sound you’ve ever heard from a little speaker — all over again.”

To do that, Bose engineers started from a clean-sheet to redefine the relationship between size, sound, and battery-power. An entirely new acoustic package was developed first, then matched with the cylindrical shape it required, and a single-piece aluminum enclosure. There’s no “front” or “back,” because Revolve speakers don’t have to be pointed to favor one location over another. They combine dual-opposing passive-radiators with a powerful, ultra-efficient transducer — positioned face-down — and a new patented acoustic deflector. With an added “pressure trap” to eliminate distortion, the result is dramatic. Sound radiates uniformly in every direction, with deep, rich bass — and without the sweet spots and frequency drop-offs of conventional 360-degree speakers.

Both new Revolve models feature an IPX4-rating to withstand spills, rain, and pool splashes; and rugged durability to survive dings, drops, and bumps. A quarter-twenty thread on the bottom of each makes for easy mounting on a tri-pod for listening in the yard or an outdoor party.

The free Bose Connect app now syncs two SoundLinks — any combination, for any models starting with the SoundLink Color II. New Stereo Mode enables left-right pairing, and new Party Mode lets you play the same music on both simultaneously.

Pricing and Availability
Both are available as of April 13, 2017 in two colors –- Triple Black or Lux Gray.
