Bose SoundLink revolve review: (A Portable Bluetooth 360 Speaker, Triple Black)
Bose SoundLink revolve review: I don’t feel any necessity to mention regarding Bose’s reputation. Bose is number one American brand in the speaker world. Though a few Companies are the contestant to Bose speakers nowadays, the Bose still holds the number one position in the market.
The Bluetooth speaker market has been changing a lot likes Bose kick-started a new creativity movement for portable speakers in crisp clear loud and room-filling sounds as per customer’s demands. Now more traditional audio companies are trying to grip the portable Bluetooth speaker’s market by modifying the design, durability and audio quality so far.
For Bose, the SoundLink name has become one and the same with popular as good quality, small, but loudspeakers. If you read my earlier article ‘Bose SoundLink Mini II review‘, you had a clear concept about it. And SoundLink Revolve is a truly portable, 360-degree sound-output that’s worthy of your auditory attention.
The excitement in Bluetooth speakers currently is all around 360-degree audio, with the music sounding the equivalent, it doesn’t matter where you are in the room. The SoundLink Revolve is getting 360-degree directional-audio act.
Superior design and materials combine with movability and compact auditory make this one of the best Bluetooth speakers everywhere – even though you have to pay a more price for it than common.
Design & feature:
Through this Bose SoundLink revolve review, you will have the clear concept about its design & features. The Tapered cylindrical shape makes The Bose Revolve wireless speaker easy to grab and go. The Bose Revolve has built by durable aluminum casing its Inside and a full-range driver hit outing downwards into an original diffuser plate, which objectives to spread the sound out equally in all directions.
There are two passive radiators inside too, which are responsible for strengthening the lower frequencies and placed opposite each other to stop out any vibrations. The Bose Revolve is an amazingly petite speaker, and it is fit into any space in the home.
The SoundLink Revolve is 1.46pound weighted and measures 5.97 x 3.24 x 3.24 inches (HWD). It’s has a circular base and a little smaller spherical at the top panel, giving the speaker a shape similar to a coffee pot, even though expressively larger. It’s available in Triple Black or Lux Gray colors, and sidewise from being smaller. The SoundLink Revolve is IPX4-rated, it’s mean they can survive poolside splashes and some raindrops, but fully not waterproof like IPX7 rated.
Onto the top rubberized section, there are power control, Bluetooth pairing, a foundation button that switches between the Aux and USB inputs, and a multi-function button that controls playback, track navigation, and call management. There is also a committed volume button that also works along with your mobile device’s master volume.
The spherical outer panel has holes for the speaker grille on its lower half, and the bottom is rubberized to avoid device’s movement due to bass vibrations. Near the down base, there’s a connection port for the micro USB charging, a charging cable is along with a wall adapter.
Bose provides a charging cradle in addition for $ 29.00, but it operates through the cable along with wall adapter that including with the speaker, so all this accessory does enable to charge without plugging and unplugging the USB cable. Bose approximations battery life to be 12 hours, but its results will depend on volume levels and your mix of wired and wireless playback.
The micro USB port can also be used for connection to a computer for playing audio, and there’s a 3.5mm Aux input port which is for wired playback from mobile devices, though this cable is not included with the speaker.
The built-in mic offers decent self-expression, though clearness is not remarkable, it’s basically average for the way in the monarchy of Bluetooth speakers.
Bose provides the free app to manage devices and multi-connection, this app is easy to use and well-designed. It’s the same app that most wireless Bose devices use for manage devices.
You can use the app at the SoundLink Revolve to control volume, playback, pairing, and party mode to multiple Bose speakers. You can also put out of action voice prompts and set an auto-off timer to save battery life.
The speaker’s controls are placed onto the top rubberized surface, and make the speaker a pushover to use. There are individual buttons for adjusting the volume, devoted buttons for switching between Aux/USB and Bluetooth audio sources, and a “multi-function” button that can be used to pause and play with a single press or skip back and forward with triple- and double-press. You can also hold it down to activate whichever Google Assistant or Siri, depending on which smartphone is connected.
We are clarifying its satisfactory performance through this Bose SoundLink revolve review. The biggest reason for go with the SoundLink Revolve that all around 360-degree audio, with the music sounding the equivalent, it doesn’t matter where you are in the room, it gives omnidirectional sound. This is great for party gathering so everyone can have the same listening experience no matter where they are sitting, for party mode, it is better to use multiple SoundLink Revolve devices. You can easily take calls with the built-in speakerphone with voice prompts talk through wireless Bluetooth pairing.
In expressions of volume, the SoundLink Revolve does a great job of thrusting music loudly in all directions. If you place the SoundLink Revolve at the center of the room, the speaker has a bit absences some bass response but that can be improved by placing the speaker near walls that reflect sounds and increase bass response.
Small Bluetooth speakers have a trend to amplify the lower frequencies in an attempt to impress, Bose has been the same trend of that in the past – but the Revolve airstrikes a pleasurable balance and navigates to making the bass go too boomy. Pairing with two sound link Revolve speakers in party mode for additional performance or put them in stereo mode; instruments and vocals will naturally separate and spread across an impressive soundstage. You can manage your devices to unlock Features and access future updates through The Bose connect app.
Generally, the Bose SoundLink Revolve’s sonic presentation is excellent, particularly when compared to the other 360-degree speaker like the ‘UE Wonderboom Charcoal’. Where the Wonderboom sounds stressed, the Bose plays loudly and smoothly. Bose SoundLink Revolve’s bass response also make sounds richer and more organized than the Wonderboom, which structures for a mid-forward sound. However, you should keep in your mind that the Wonderboom is half the price of Revolve for many reasons.
Compare with the ‘SoundLink Mini II’ earlier version of Bose device, the Mini II and Revolve sounds nearly as respectable but doesn’t match the spacious soundstage and instrumental separation of the Mini II – though, definitely both speakers sound very good and you won’t realize the difference unless you listen to them side by side.
The Revolve more appropriate to listening outdoors with the 360-degree sound than the directional sound of other SoundLink. The SoundLink Revolve is IPX4 rated, which means they’ll survive poolside splashes and some raindrops but you won’t down the speaker into the pool.
The Revolve’s Bluetooth range is average, its cover up to 30 feet only. Its battery life also normal as a speaker of this size that lasting 12 hours at reasonable listening volumes, though the Revolve+ improves on this slightly with a 16-hours battery life. The Bose SoundLink Revolve takes incredibly long 4 hours to fully charge when empty. It would have been nice to look for Bose jump to USB-C for faster charging in addition.
