Bose has introduced its ‘SoundLink’ Wireless Mobile speaker, a portable powered speaker that connects wirelessly to any Bluetooth enabled device. ‘People want to listen to their music everywhere,’ said John Roselli, of Bose. ‘And millions of consumers already own Bluetooth-enabled devices such as the iPhone, iPad and Android phones that can store thousands of songs.’

The SoundLink contains four drivers plus dual-opposing passive radiators, and is around the size of a book. It has an integrated cover that unfolds into a stand. Open this cover and the system is ready to be played. Close it, and the system shuts down. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery is claimed to provide eight hours of playback time at typical listening levels.

Bose has elected to use the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) to deliver a reliable wireless connection. Pairing takes only a few moments, and wirelessly connecting to a smartphone or tablet is as easy as pressing one button on the speaker’s control panel. The six most recently used Bluetooth devices are stored in memory, eliminating the need to pair again. There are two versions of the Bose Soundlink available, one with a nylon cover ($449), and one with a leather cover ($499).
