Bose proprietary speaker
technology for lifelike sound performance. The Bose SoundLink can be moved from

Bose Proprietary Speaker Technology: The Bose SoundLink wireless
mobile speaker employs proprietary speaker technology that delivers robust sound
with convincing low notes from Bose passive radiators.
Note: The speaker is designed to sound best when placed on a
shelf, counter, desk, or tabletop that is 24-48" high. For best bass
response, the speaker should be placed near a wall; bass response decreases
as the speaker is placed closer to the center of a room.
Bluetooth Technology (with 30' range): The SoundLink Wireless Mobile
speaker is designed specifically for use with today's most popular Bluetooth
devices, such as smartphones, tablets, & laptops. Wireless Bluetooth Technology
eliminates the need to dock or physically connect your Bluetooth enabled audio
device. A 30' wireless range lets you keep your Bluetooth enabled digital audio
player, smartphone, tablet, laptop, or other device with you & place the
SoundLink speaker where you want it.
Note: On average, the speaker will work within 30' of your paired
Bluetooth device. Walls & construction materials can affect reception at
times. The Bose SoundLink is not compatible with all Bluetooth devices.
Pair & Play: The SoundLink wireless mobile speaker must be paired with
your Bluetooth enabled audio device initially. Simply press & hold the Bluetooth
button on the unit's top panel, then choose the "SoundLink" speaker from your
smartphone or other Bluetooth enabled source; and its now memorized, & ready to
play. The wireless mobile speaker keeps up to 6 Bluetooth sources in memory.
However, it can only connect to, and play audio from one device at a time.
Top Panel Controls: Power & volume controls are located on the
wireless mobile speaker, itself. Otherwise, use your Bluetooth enabled digital
audio player, smartphone, tablet, laptop, or other paired device to select a
playlist, streaming audio source, etc. No remote control needed.
Phone Interrupt: When you have your smartphone connected to the
SoundLink, an incoming phone call will mute the wireless mobile speaker & your
phone call will only be heard from your smartphone. When the call ends, your
music automatically resumes through the SoundLink speaker.
Auxiliary Input: The Bose SoundLink
is equipped with a rear-panel 3.5mm auxiliary
input for playing an MP3 player or DVD/CD player through the system. A 36"
stereo minijack audio cable is included.
Status Indicators: The status indicators, located on the front of the
SoundLink speaker, illuminate to indicate when a source or feature is activated.
Integrated Cover: An integrated cover protects the speaker
during travel & unfolds into a stand for instant playing anywhere. No sound is
emitted from the speaker unless the cover is opened. The included cover is a
dark gray nylon. Additional covers in various colors (burgundy, red, tan) are
available (sold separately).
