Bose has introduced the SoundLink Bluetooth® speaker III, which connects wirelessly to your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth device. It’s available now and costs US$299.95.
Four neodymium transducers and dual-opposing passive radiators combine with a new digital signal processing algorithm and improved electronics to play louder than its predecessor, while maintaining balanced and natural sound at higher listening levels, according to the folks at Bose. Its industrial design is inspired by the SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker.
A silicone button panel protects from dirt and dust, and a wraparound metal grille resists fingerprints. For personalization and added protection, new accessory covers are available in gray, blue, green, orange and pink.
The SoundLink III weighs just three pounds, and measures about 5 inches high, 10 inches wide and only 2 inches deep. It includes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 14 hours of listening.
The SoundLink III streams music wirelessly via Bluetooth A2DP. The six most recently used Bluetooth devices are stored in memory, eliminating the need to pair again. And control is simple: use the buttons on the top of the speaker, or through the smart device itself. Go to www.bose.com for more info.
