Bose SoundLink Revolve II

The Bose SoundLink Revolve II Bluetooth speaker is sleek, dust- and water-resistant, super portable and offers full 360 surround sound, wherever you choose to take it. It’s simple to set up, and a second SoundLink Revolve II can be paired up to engage Party Mode.

13 pre-installed languages ship with the SoundLink Revolve II (English, Spanish, French, German, Mandarin, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Portuguese, Swedish, Dutch, Russian, Polish) and once plugged in and turned on, a voice will prompt you to select and confirm via a press of the Multifunction button.

The multifunction button further controls skipping forward/backward to next/previous track and answers/ends a call (press that button again to answer a second incoming call). Callers can also be switched from one to another as well muted/unmuted.

The speaker’s built-in microphone acts as an extension of your smartphone’s mic. You can access voice control on your mobile device to make/take calls, play music, provide the weather forecast, game scores and more. You can also disable auto on-off by simultaneously pressing and holding the “+” and Input buttons.

For its relatively small footprint, the SoundLink Revolve II’s sound is rich and full. We tested it in our home office, in the bedroom and at the park (using Spotify playlists).

Bose designed this speaker with a super-efficient transducer, dual-passive radiators and an omnidirectional acoustic deflector. By placing it near a wall, sound will radiate and reflect around the room.

An additional feature (not mentioned in the quick start guide) is the option to plug a 3.5 mm stereo cable into the AUX connector at the back of the speaker.

The product ships with a USB micro-B to USB-A cable. The optional charging cradle (CAD $39/USD $29) provides an easy resting base for taking the fully-charged speaker on all your adventures. Note that the charging cradle has the same micro slot to accommodate that same cable mentioned above.
