About the Bose® SoundLink® Revolve II Bluetooth® speaker
A great speaker got better
A great speaker got better
Bose took one of their most popular Bluetooth speakers and made it even better. The Soundlink Revolve II delivers the same great sound as the original, with slightly longer battery life and an even more rugged design. Like its predecessor, this speaker can be easily synced with your Bose Home Speaker 500 or Bose Soundbar 700 to conveniently share music.
Spacious, 360° sound
The SoundLink Revolve II delivers deep, loud, immersive 360° sound. The sound from its downward-firing transducer is defused through an omnidirectional acoustic deflector, ensuring a uniform soundfield.
Two passive radiators reinforce the low frequencies, adding richness to the sound.
Ready to go
The SoundLink Revolve II delivers deep, loud, immersive 360° sound. The sound from its downward-firing transducer gets spread out by something Bose calls an "omnidirectional acoustic deflector." It allows this single small speaker to deliver a wide, uniform soundfield.
Bose Connect app
Download the free Bose® Connect app to your iPhone®, iPad®, or Android™ smartphone or tablet and turn your device into a remote for the SoundLink Revolve II. With the Connect app, you can pair two SoundLink Revolve II speakers. They can play two-channel stereo, or you can have them both play simultaneously for double the volume.
Take that call!
The Soundlink Revolve II is compatible with both Apple Siri and Google Assistant voice controllers via your paired smartphone, for hands-free operation. And you can receive calls through the speaker, so you don't always have to scramble to get to the phone.
The SoundLink® Revolve II comes with a USB recharging cable — just plug it into your computer or USB wall adapter. Or you can use the SoundLink Revolve charge cradle (available separately). The built-in rechargeable battery delivers up to 13 hours on a full charge.

More details on the Bose® SoundLink® Revolve II Bluetooth® speaker
360° Full-Range Sound: The Bose SoundLink Revolve II utilizes a highly efficient transducer for full-range sound, dual-passive radiators for deep lows with no unwanted vibrations, a pressure trap to eliminate any imperfect noise to keep the sound smooth, and an acoustic deflector for an omni-directional experience. Place it in the center of the room and everyone gets the same experience. Or, set it near a wall and sound will radiate and reflect around the room, immersing you and your guests. All this adds up to true 360° sound for consistent, uniform coverage.
Water & Dust Resistant: SoundLink Revolve II's water & dust resistant design means you can use it more places without worrying; like at the pool, in the bathroom, or by the kitchen sink. With extensive testing and an IP55 rating, Bose has ensured the speaker will long outlast an accidental showering of water and prevent the intrusion of dust. Thanks to its soft-material exterior, you don't even need to worry about knocking it over, tossing it in your bag, or sitting it down a little harder than you meant to.
Note: The SoundLink Revolve II is water-resistant, but not waterproof. The speaker should not be submerged in water.
Voice Guided Multi-Device Pairing: Voice prompts talk you through Bluetooth pairing, making it simple to wirelessly connect your Bluetooth-enabled source device to the Bose SoundLink Revolve II. The SoundLink Revolve II keeps track of the last eight devices to have paired with it, dropping the least recently used when a new one is paired. It even allows you to keep two Bluetooth source devices connected at once for easier switching between devices (however, it will only receive audio from one device at a time). The Bose SoundLink Revolve II will automatically re-connect with an already paired Bluetooth source device when it is in wireless range (up to 30'). Your Bluetooth-enable devices can be paired either via SSP or NFC.
- SSP (Simple Secure Pairing): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), the SoundLink Revolve II will search for the nearest Bluetooth-enabled devices to pair with; without the need for complicated pin-codes.
- NFC (Near Field Communication): The Bose Revolve II supports NFC pairing. NFC is a technology that enables Bluetooth devices (such as Android) to establish wireless communication with each other by simply tapping the devices together.
Wireless Music Streaming: Thanks to the support for Bluetooth A2DP & AVRCP, you can stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth source device to the Bose SoundLink Revolve II speaker system. You also get basic playback controls like Play/Pause, Volume Up/Down, and Previous/Next Track from the SoundLink Revolve II's top-panel buttons. The Bose SoundLink Revolve II has a range of approximately 30', so you can enjoy your music without wires.
Note: If you are using a smartphone and a phone call comes in, your music will be interrupted until the phone call ends. Once the phone call ends, your music will automatically resume.
Hands-Free Speakerphone: The Bose SoundLink Revolve II also features a built-in mic, so you can use the SoundLink Revolve II as a speakerphone for your smartphone. The built-in mic will be used to carry on your side of the conversation, while the other party is heard through the Revolve II's speaker. You can use the SoundLink Revolve II's top-panel controls to answer, end, and reject calls. The SoundLink Revolve II can even access the voice dialing functions of your smartphone and audibly indentify incoming callers (when applicable).
Digital Voice Assistance: The SoundLink Revolve II's built-in mic can even act as an extension of the microphone in your Apple iPhone 4S or newer, or compatible Android smartphone - allowing you to access Siri & Google Assistant.
Aux Input: The SoundLink Revolve II has a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting a external portable audio source other than your Bluetooth-enabled source device.
Bose Connect App: The Bose Connect app (for Apple iOS 11.0+ and Android OS 5.0+) gives you quick access to the key features like the auto-off timer, volume control, and battery readings. Plus, it's the easiest way to manage multiple Bluetooth connected devices. From the app you'll also receive software updates, product tips, and be able to personalize settings.
Stereo & Party Modes: For those times when one Bose SoundLink Revolve II isn't enough, you can use the Bose Connect app to pair two SoundLink Revolve II speakers together. You can select Party mode to pair two Revolve II speakers together for double the sound. You can select Stereo Mode to naturally separate and spread the sound across an immersive stereo soundstage.
Note: The Bose SoundLink Color II, SoundLink Micro, SoundLink Revolve, SoundLink Revolve+, SoundLink Revolve II, and SoundLink Revolve+ II are all compatible with Party Mode.
Bose SimpleSync: Bose SimpleSync allows you to pair a member of the Bose Home Speaker family (sold separately) with the SoundLink speaker for playback of the same audio signal. Use the Bose Music app (for Apple iOS 12.0+ and Android OS 6.0+) to setup and enable SimpleSync. SimpleSync then provides a one-to-one connection for a maximum of two Bose products (the SoundLink speaker and a Bose Home Speaker). The two products must remain within typical Bluetooth wireless range (30') of each other to stay connected. You'll be able to listen to the same audio signal from the Bose Home Speaker on the connected SoundLink speaker (you cannot listen to different sources). You can choose to listen on both the Bose Home Speaker and the SoundLink speaker at the same time with independent volume control; or just the speaker or the headphone. Compatible Bose Home Speakers include -
- Soundbar 500 and 700
- Home Speaker 300 and 500
- Portable Home Speaker
- You cannot wirelessly stream Bluetooth audio to a Bose Home Speaker and use SimpleSync at the same time.
- You can only sync audio from a Bose Home Speaker to the SoundLink speaker; not from the SoundLinke speaker to the Bose Home Speaker.
Top-Panel Controls: Top-panel controls include Power, Pairing, Input, Volume, & Multi-function. The Multi-function button provides Bluetooth music playback functions (such as Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track), as well as Bluetooth hands-free phone functions (such as Voice Control/Digital Assistant Activation, Answer/End/Reject/Mute Call, and Device/Speaker/Call Switch).
Rechargeable Battery: The rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 13 hours of playback time. Using the SoundLink Revolve II's microUSB input, the included microUSB-to-USB cable, and an optional USB/AC power adapter (sold separately - see Accessories Tab) you can charge the built-in battery. It takes approximately 4 hours to fully charge the built-in battery.
- Protection Mode: When your speaker is unplugged and unused for more than three days with a remaining charge of less than 10%, it enters battery protection mode to preserve battery power.
- Auto-Off: The speaker powers off after 20 minutes of inactivity (no sound coming from the speaker) while operating on battery power.
Optional Charging Cradle: An optional charging cradle (018RVLVECC, sold separately) keeps the SoundLink Revolve II charged and ready. It's a convenient home base for your speaker, and you can play your music while it charges. Just plug the wall charger and microUSB-to-USB cable included with the speaker into the cradle.
