- BOSE SOUNDLINK REVOLVE,
WHAT HI-FI?, AUGUST 2017
Deep. Loud. And immersive, too.
Meet SoundLink Revolve+, our best performing portable Bluetooth speaker yet.
This true 360Â° speaker was engineered to spread deep, jaw-dropping sound in every direction. That means, when everyone stands around it, everyone gets the same experience. If you set it near a wall, sound will radiate and reflect around the room, immersing you in that same feeling you felt at your favourite concert. And with a flexible handle, it's designed to go wherever you want to bring the music.
Deliver high quality, low note performance and reduce wasteful vibration by turning it into acoustic output.
Downward-facing, full-range transducer works with acoustic deflector for 360Â° sound.
Omnidirectional acoustic deflector
Spreads sound evenlyâ€”without a single dead zoneâ€”for uniform coverage.
More to hear. More to share.
Donâ€™t let its size fool you. This pint sized enclosure is packed with more technology than meets the eye. A highly efficient transducer. Dual-passive radiators. An omnidirectional acoustic deflector. All of which simply means you'll get lifelike soundâ€¦ and real-life goosebumps.
SINGS IN THE RAIN
You're not afraid of a little water. Your speaker shouldn't be either. SoundLink Revolve's water-resistant design means that you can use it in more places without worrying, like at the pool or by the kitchen sink.
Packed with power
A portable Bluetooth speaker needs impressive battery life. This one delivers. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery plays up to 16 hours: for full-day listening. Sure, some other speakers may play longer, but not without compromising the deep, powerful bass youâ€™ll get from ours.
Which one is right for you?
Our two 360Â° SoundLink speakers are similar. There's SoundLink Revolve and SoundLink Revolve+, which plays louder and longer and includes a fabric handle for easy portability.

One app. Complete control.
The Bose Connect app gives you easy access to everything your product has to offer. Get tips, unlock product features and personalise your settings, so you can spend more time enjoying the music instead of setting it up.
You can also easily manage your speakerâ€™s BLUETOOTHÂ® connections with a single swipe, so everyone can have a turn being the DJ. And when loud just isnâ€™t loud enough, turn it up with Party Mode to play two wireless speakers simultaneously. Or switch to Stereo Mode for dedicated left and right playback, giving you a full and dynamic surround sound experience.
Your music. Ready to go.
An optional charging cradle keeps your SoundLink Revolve charged and ready. Itâ€™s a convenient home base for your speaker, and you can play your music while it charges. Just plug the wall charger included with your speakers into the cradle.
Make a connection. Itâ€™s easy. Voice prompts talk you through Bluetooth pairing. You can connect to two devicesâ€”and the speaker remembers the eight most recently connected devices.
Youâ€™ve seen it before. Everyone crowded around with one friend on speakerphone. You struggle to hear them, they struggle to hear you. Not anymore. SoundLink Revolve speakers let you take calls right through the speaker, so words are clearer and less muffled.
SIRI & GOOGLE VOICE COMMANDS
Donâ€™t have your phone handy? Donâ€™t worry. Just press and hold the multi-function button to access the voice input for Siri or your Google Assistant right from the speaker.
SoundLink Revolve's water resistant design means that you can use it in more places without worrying. With extensive testing and an IPX4 rating, we've ensured your speaker will long outlast an accidental showering of water.

No. The speakers' wireless connection is BluetoothÂ® only.

The speakers have a wireless range up to 9Â m (30Â ft). Performance can be affected by obstacles such as walls, interference from Wi-Fi or other wireless devices.

Can I stream music (Spotify, Deezer etc.) from my computer to the speaker?
Yes, as long as your computer is enabled for BluetoothÂ® and is within 9Â metres of the speaker.
What happens when my phone is streaming music and a call comes in?
When a call comes in, the music will pause and the call will ring through the speaker. You can answer the call by pressing the multi-function button and talk into the speaker itself to conduct your phone call. When you end your call, music playback resumes.

What purpose do the voice prompts on the speaker serve?
They provide guidance during the BluetoothÂ® pairing and connection process. They also identify the connected source devices by text to speech, simplifying usage with more than one source device.
Can the voice prompts be disabled?
Yes. Simply press the "+" (volume up) and "â€“" (volume down) buttons simultaneously.
Can the SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+ BluetoothÂ® speakers be used to provide audio for video, such as watching a movie on a tablet?
Yes. However, the quality of the experienceâ€”specifically, synchronisation between audio and videoâ€”may be compromised due to various signal processing technologies implemented in the speakers. This is true especially when using BluetoothÂ® as your input. For better synchronisation and lower latency, we recommend you use the Auxiliary or USB Audio inputs. For the best experience, please update your speaker's software.
What does the IPX4 rating mean for the water resistant SoundLink Revolve speakers?
The IPX4 rating classifies the degrees of protection provided against the intrusion of solid objects (including body parts like hands and fingers), dust, accidental contact and water in electrical enclosures. For SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+, we've stretched beyond the required testing parameters, to ensure that your speaker will long outlast an accidental showering of water. This means that you can use SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+ in more places and not worry if it gets wet (for example, splashes at the pool, getting caught in the rain, washing your car, splashes in the kitchen, etc.). Just donâ€™t submerge it.
