- BOSE SOUNDLINK REVOLVE,
WHAT HI-FI?, AUGUST 2017
This true 360° 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 360° sound.
Omnidirectional acoustic deflector
Spreads sound evenly—without a single dead zone—for uniform coverage.
Don'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 sound… and real-life goosebumps.
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.
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 you'll get from ours.
Our two 360° SoundLink speakers are similar. There's SoundLink Revolve and SoundLink Revolve+, which plays louder and longer and includes a fabric handle for easy portability.

The Bose Connect app makes it easy to connect and automatically switch between Bluetooth devices. So your friends can take over and DJ without ever missing a beat.
For those times when loud just isn't loud enough, use the app to connect any two SoundLink Revolve speakers in Party Mode. Or get even closer to the feeling of a live performance by switching to Stereo Mode. Instruments and vocals will naturally separate and spread across an immersive soundstage—making your music feel alive.
An optional charging cradle keeps your SoundLink Revolve charged and ready. It'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. It's easy. Voice prompts talk you through Bluetooth pairing. You can connect to two devices—and the speaker remembers the eight most recently connected devices.
You'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.

WHAT'S IN THE BOX
SoundLink® Revolve+ is larger and generates higher-volume, more room-filling sound than SoundLink® Revolve. SoundLink® Revolve+ also has a carrying handle to make portability easier given its larger diameter. SoundLink® Revolve+ has a battery life of up to 16 hours, while SoundLink® Revolve has a battery life of up to 12 hours. All other features are identical.
The audio connection options for the SoundLink® Revolve and Revolve+ are Bluetooth® and 3.5 mm stereo audio cable. NFC can also help facilitate Bluetooth® pairing.
Yes, using the Bose Connect app, you can enable Party Mode from any of the following Bose Bluetooth speakers: SoundLink® Revolve and SoundLink® Revolve+.
No. The speakers' wireless connection is Bluetooth® only.
The speakers have a wireless range up to 30 ft (9 m). Performance can be affected by obstacles such as walls, interference from Wi-Fi or other wireless devices.
SoundLink® Revolve speakers keep track of the last eight devices that were paired and connected to them, dropping the least recently used device when a new one is paired.
Yes, as long as your computer is enabled for Bluetooth® and is within 10 metres of the speaker.
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.
In typical usage, the SoundLink® Revolve battery lasts up to 12 hours and the SoundLink® Revolve+ lasts up to 16 hours. Battery performance can vary with the content played and volume at which it is played.
While not playing music, much of the SoundLink® Revolve speakers' battery charge can be recovered in approximately four hours when using a USB power source. Charging from alternative USB power sources or when playing music may take longer.
They provide guidance during the Bluetooth® pairing and connection process. They also identify the connected source devices by text to speech, simplifying usage with more than one source device.
Yes. Simply press the "+" (volume up) and "–" (volume down) buttons simultaneously.
Yes. However, the quality of the experience—specifically, synchronisation between audio and video—may be compromised due to various signal processing technologies implemented in the speakers. This is true especially when using Bluetooth® 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.
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 don't submerge it.
