(iPod), smartphone (iPhone/Android/Blackberry), tablet (iPad), or laptop
(Windows/Mac) in & around your home. The SoundLink Wireless Mobile Speaker utilizes
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 Leather Cover: An integrated brown leather 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. Additional nylon covers in various colors (burgundy, red, tan) are
available (sold separately).

lithium-ion battery provides approximately 8-hours of playback time. The lithium-ion battery charges whenever the system is plugged into a wall outlet with the included
