The integrated handle makes the Bose® SoundLink® Revolve+ easy to take along.
The Bose® SoundLink® Revolve+ Bluetooth® speaker may look compact, but its sound is anything but. You'll experience deep, full sound in an immersive 360° soundfield. This slender, tapered speaker has an easy-grab handle for convenient portability. And its durable aluminum body is water-resistant, so a poolside splash or a sudden shower won't hurt it.
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+.
With the Connect app, you can pair two SoundLink® Revolve+ speakers. They can play two-channel stereo, or you can have them both play simultaneously for double the volume.
And you can pair two devices to your SoundLink® Revolve+ at the same time. So you and a friend can take turns playing tunes through the speaker and keep the music flowing.
Voice prompts talk you through the Bluetooth pairing process, making setup fast and painless. Thanks to built-in NFC (Near Field Communication), you can pair a compatible device just by touching it to the SoundLink® Revolve+. The speaker also has top-mounted indented control buttons. So you can control it without touching your smartphone.
The SoundLink® Revolve+ 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 16 hours on a full charge.

"Awesome" Great sound!.
Pros: Work on my house.
Cons: There in jail.
Very good overall sound. Strong bass and ample volume from this compact speaker
Pros: Strong bass, ample volume, portable
Cons: High end could be better (although not bad)
Sounds good very good.
Much smaller and lighter than I had imagined . I knew the sound would be great as I already own a Bose mini soundlink for travel but this may be my new travel partner.
Pros: Compact and light , easily portable GREAT sound
Cons: Non that I ca see or hear .
I bought this for a patio to pair with my Samsung LCD TV as a portable sound solution for when we are watching TV or want music outside. The sound is excellent and the pairing is simple and very reliable. Unlike some speakers it pairs automatically when it powers up, and the voice menu is very helpful so you know if it is paired to your phone or the TV. From a sound standpoint, I use it in a 20 x 12 covered patio, and it fills the area very well. It has good bass and is nice and clear. I generally buy Klipsch and I like their speakers a lot, this Bose delivers and I am not disappointed. The battery life is excellent, and again a plus is the voice menu that tells you the charge level each time you turn it on. I have not paired it yet with a second speaker through the Bose app but, I plan to get another one soon. It seems well built and I expect it to stand up to regular use based on the first couple of months I have had it. No regrets, if you don't mind the price, you won't be disappointed.
Pros: Quality Sound, Well Built, Well thought out programming and menu functionality.
This met all my expectations. It's nicely styled, portable, and has an excellent sound with just the right amount of bass. It easily fills my 600 square foot garage with all the volume I would ever want. I might even consider buying another in the future
Pros: Great sound Easy to carry from house to garage Nicely styled with tactile buttons
I'm a long-time Bose-aholic. Really impressed with the sound out of this little unit. I bought two for the patio. Like the 'party' option, or the 'stereo potion'. The app is a little clumsy, in that setting up a single speaker can be difficult. Like it, though.
Pros: .compact .easy to set up / use .terrific sound
Cons: .app a little clumsy
Bought it for my dad who likes classic music. He likes it.
The Bose SoundLink Revolve+ Bluetooth speaker is enjoyed by all in our house. Get in line if you want to listen to this speaker here. This compact speaker defies it's size with a booming bass and crystal clear 360 degree sound. Rarely have we used the maximum power as it's not needed. Great purchase and will be enjoyed for many years to come.
Pros: Powerful and well built. Great bass sound without distortion. Easy connection with bluetooth. 360 degree sound
great unit in a small discreet package but if your expecting in your face high volume operation this is not for you I however appreciate the 360 degree even sound and the undeniable full spectrum sound quality at any volume and the long play time between charges is just a bonus feature
Awesome - and I'm hard to impress. Less than 5 minutes out of the box & music was streaming from the Revolve+. Pretty basic, easy-to-understand setup instructions. I'm impressed by the quality of sound, especially the bass...the sound goes in all directions. I'm a Bose fan, and this speaker reinforces my adoration. Am charging it up via cable; tomorrow, I receive the recharging base to make the process easier and more attractive. Two thumbs up. The price is well worth it. Bose rocks!
Pros: First-rate sound
Cons: None whatsoever
I compared it against the best (UE Boom 2) and it came away shining. Loud, clear, and it had the bass volume I wanted. The battery lasted FOREVER if kept low, and way outlasted the competition at higher levels. The handle is perfect, and it goes with me nearly everywhere!
The sound is clear and brings the enjoyment of music to a higher level for the greatest listening pleasure of me and my family.
Pros: exquisite sound... brings out the richness of the melody; the handle ... I hang it in the middle of the room and the around sound just filters the room from every angle.
Cons: Needs a carrying case ... this is a speaker I take every where I go
I bought two of these speakers and they sound pretty good in stereo mode. The bass left me wanting more, especially at anything more than half volume. Above half volume, you can tell there is a lot of compression to the sound. I think for a portable/battery powered speaker it sounds decent, but for the total amount, I expected more. I actually ended up returning them because the two products were different colors. They were both "Triple Black" but one was a deep blue-black and the other was a lighter green-black.
Pros: Good stereo image Solid construction Light and portable
Cons: Expensive Weak bass Poor quality control
Love this thing. Super easy to set up. Very intuitive. Sounds fantastic. Don't skimp, for the best sound buy Bose. You won't regret it. You'll be enjoying it long after the sting of spending 300 clams subsides.
Pros: Sounds fantastic and is easy to use
Cons: None thus far
I bought this for my wife to replace a older Bose. She love's it and take it everywhere we go this thing rocks
Pros: Very easy to use small and light and last forever on one charge
Cons: Cost but you get what you pay for
I really didn't believe the hype of the speaker until after I bought it. I needed a speaker to use with my Mac computer and decided I would kill two birds with one stone by buying a speaker I could use outside of the house also. I decided to play basketball with my sons outside and we brought the speaker out with us. Turning it up to about 70% volume produced so much great, large sound that it seemed as if it was coming from a huge home stereo. This is easily worth the money even though it is not cheap!
Pros: Sounds like a HUGE home theater. Can be used as my computer speaker then brought outside to play.
Cons: None. Zero. Best I've spent on audio.
Has Bose's quality look and feel plus great sound...
Pros: Greate Sound
This Bose speaker is top of the line. Great Sound.
Reminds me of the old 901 with equalization applied to a midrange driver for highs and lows that are not natural for a midrange driver. Volume and quality are up to Bose standards, but I miss the realism of a real tweeter. Perhaps the 360 degree dispersion is part of the problem. My son loves it, but I prefer higher fidelity even if I need a bigger package and less peak volume potential to get it.
Pros: Size, volume, build quality
I purchased my second Bose Resolve 360 to Use in Combination with my Marantz NR1508. I live in a Studio and the Sound From 2 of These is Much More Than I Expected-If Money is Not in Your Way-Go For the Greater Volume & the Awesome Full Stereo Sound (Your Ears Will Be More Than Happy)! DEE
Pros: Sound Unbelievable for Size Puts Out a Clean 20 Watts With The Extra Charging Cradle Underneath-Never Will Need a Charge
Cons: Purchased a Couple of Weeks Ago & Can't Think of Any Possible Flaws!
I Love It Its Nothing Out There At this point that can beat this powerful little speaker There are no Cons Just Beautiful Sound Coming Thru.
Hi, Thanks for the input on this unit.....terrific sound and clarity.....easy to use and convenient. PS,....Tell Winston I said HI,,,,he is the rep who told me about this Bose. You have some fine folks on your staff.......I am not tech savvy but Winston took me to the second or thurd grade at least. Peace and health, Ken
The speaker: I think this is a great buy for the money. The Revolve+ puts out a lot of sound and has the quality you would expect to get from Bose. It's a lot lighter and portable than I expected it to be...and that is a good thing. I can easily push out quality sound to my entire pool area with no problem. Crutchfield: I have always felt confident ordering products through Crutchfield. That has be re-enforced once again. I love working with them and you should feel good about ordering anything through them. The only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 stars is because I think the user experience is lacking. Here's why: * I don't understand the point of the "Bose Connect" application. I don't need it to connect. Maybe if I have more than 1? Regardless, the experience is a little weak. * The buttons and the audible voice seem a bit outdated. I'm not sure what the right answer is there, but it makes the speaker feel less "high-tech".
Pros: * Amazing sound. * Light weight. * Strap/handle makes it easy to transport or hang. * Bose rules! Crutchfield rules!
Cons: * User Experience (UX) is a little weak.
Extremely clear. The output is amazing.
Pros: Doing business with a high class organization like Crutchfield you're going to get the best of the best. I don't need to say more.
Cons: None what so ever.
Great sound. Compact. Easy bluetooth interface
Pros: Sound, size, battery life
Very happy with the sound quality. I like that multiple Bluetooth devices can be paired at the same time. Also that I can pause/play from the speaker buttons as well as from the input device. Also like the mini cable input, so I have the option to connect an input device with a mini out directly (e.g., iPhone with a headphone jack). The optional charging base I purchased is a minor convenience but, knowing what I know now, it was not necessary.
Pros: Very good sound quality. Multiple Bluetooth devices can be paired at same time. Can pause/play from the speaker. Mini cable input.
Cons: Was not clear to me from the product description that the optional charging base not really necessary.
I love Bose products. This unit has a powerful sound
I absolutely love listening to music on this Bose Speaker! :) And thank you for accepting and sending me my order.
Great BIG sound, little package! Bought this to send off with daughter to college in the Fall! Fully satisfied. Now I want one for myself!!
Had it out on the patio & cranked it up. No distortion & very fine range of sound quality. Simply put....it's just great!
Pros: Convenient, great quality & sound
Will most likely give it 5 stars in follow up but let's see how it performs over longer period. Typical fast shipment from Crutchfield. Solid packaging and very easy setup. Seemed to sync even with older iPad and iTouch which have been quirky with my other Bluetooth hookups. My "not really fair" comparison is my B&W ZepplinAir which cost twice as much. But it's not really portable and tethered to a power supply. So having had several Bose Sound Docks in the past I thought I'd give the little Revolve a try and fully expected to return it figuring it couldn't really cut it outside a modest size room. Was very surprised when painting a deck how great it voiced once I backed it up to a post and positioned it lower to floor for more base. So like the old Sound Docks it loves having a hard surface to reflect off. At first I tried to drive it too hard and found that by lowering volume after getting optimum position, I could hear all the music without cranking to distortion level AND having to fiddle with moving the volume switch up/down between songs in shuttle mode of wide array of recorded tunes. I would say it is reasonable accurate in producing sound an audiophile can live with on the go.
Pros: Oh so small and easy to use. Good clarity. Quality Bose feel to controls.
Cons: None as of yet based on my expectations
We just purchased the Bose Revolve Plus and are enjoying it both inside and out! Great sound, very easy to use and versatile! We like the nice flat power supply plug too and are awaiting the charging base.
Fantastic sound! Please near wall for surprising base out of a relatively compact unit. Blue-tooth operation simple, quick and easy. If you are willing to pay for exceptional sound in a portable rechargeable unit, this is top drawer.
Pros: Sound Quality Ease of Blue-tooth connectivity Portability
Cons: Not a negative, but place close to wall for best base response
Great sound, solid volume, and awesome build quality. It's easy to use and looks great too. Very happy with it. A little bit pricey, but you get what you pay for
Pros: Sounds Great Loud Looks Good
good sound for such a small package
Great sound and battery life.
Pros: Sound, battery life, carry handle
Does exactly what the description says - beautiful loud music from a small, portable unit that looks like a "lantern"!
Pros: -Easy Bluetooth set-up. -It is light-weight and can be carried anywhere. -Great full Bose sound
This speaker far exceeded all expectations. Reviewed a lot of Bluetooth speakers and this one always came out on top. Does not distort at high volume and with the outdoor weather coming into full swing I use it daily. One of those items that once you have it you know you can't live without it. Received it several days after ordering from Crutchfield and setup was a breeze.
Pros: All good, long battery life
No matter where this speaker is facing, the sound always directed at the listener. It can be placed anywhere and still have that same great Bose quality sound!
|NFC Touch Pairing||Yes|
360° Full-Range Sound: The Bose SoundLink Revolve+ 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. All this adds up to true 360° sound for consistent, uniform coverage.
Water & Bump Resistant: SoundLink Revolve+'s water-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 IPX4 rating, Bose has ensured the speaker will long outlast an accidental showering of water. 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+ 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+. The SoundLink Revolve+ 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+ 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.
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+ speaker system. You also get basic playback controls like Play/Pause, Volume Up/Down, and Previous/Next Track from the SoundLink Revolve+'s top-panel buttons. The Bose SoundLink Revolve+ 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+ also features a built-in mic, so you can use the SoundLink Revolve+ 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+'s speaker. You can use the SoundLink Revolve+'s top-panel controls to answer, end, and reject calls. The SoundLink Revolve+ can even access the voice dialing functions of your smartphone and audibly indentify incoming callers (when applicable).
Digital Voice Assistance: The SoundLink Revolve+'s built-in mic can even act as an extension of the microphone on your Apple iPhone 4S-up or compatible Android smartphone, so you can access Siri & Android's digital voice assistant (like Google Now).
Bose Connect App: The Bose Connect app (for Apple iOS 9.0+ 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+ isn't enough, you can use the Bose Connect app to pair two SoundLink Revolve+ speakers together. You can select Party mode to pair two Revolve+ speakers together for double the sound. You can select Stereo Mode to naturally separate and spread the sound across an immersive stereo soundstage.
Aux Input: The SoundLink Revolve+ has a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting a external portable audio source other than your Bluetooth-enabled source device.
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).
Placement Options: 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. A 1/4"-20 threaded insert on the bottom of the speaker lets you attach the SoundLink Revolve+ to just about any tripod (sold separately).
Rechargeable Battery: The rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 16 hours of playback time. Using the SoundLink Revolve+'s microUSB input, the included microUSB-to-USB cable, and the supplied USB/AC power adapter you can charge the built-in battery. It takes approximately 4 hours to fully charge the built-in battery.
Carry Handle: A flexible fabric handle makes the SoundLink Revolve+ speaker easy to move and carry from room to room.
Optional Charging Cradle: An optional charging cradle (018RVLVECC, sold separately) keeps the SoundLink Revolve+ charged and ready. It's a convenient home base for your speaker so 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.

Upgrading for a better sound [ MAURICIO Apr 14, 2018 ]

Prefer Bose for this type of audio equipment. Also like the handle for portability. [ Carroll Dec 05, 2017 ]
A very convenient companion anywhere i go and the sound Awesome [ Santiago Sep 29, 2017 ]
Bose came up with a great idea, to have 360 sound. I will say right now soundLink Revolve is the best Bluetooth speaker on the market to day. Then you add to that, you can operate it in the rain and you can add a tripod to it Also I have purchased other Bose products and have had no problems with them.. [ JOHN Aug 23, 2017 ]
Sound Quality [ Devon Jul 14, 2017 ]
For vacation [ mychal Jun 26, 2017 ]
I've always liked Bose products and this one got good reviews [ DEAN Jun 19, 2017 ]
Have had good experience with Bose products in past. Like how simple they are to use. Tired of complex electronics that no one can work but the owner. [ QUIET WORLD Jun 18, 2017 ]
History of Bose quality products [ Andre Jun 15, 2017 ]
Great sound from such a small speaker!! [ Kevin Jun 03, 2017 ]
Trying something new [ gregory Apr 18, 2017 ]
I bought this because really positive previous experience with the Bose brand. It had the features I wanted, and lots of positive reviews. [ T Apr 15, 2018 ]
Yes [ matilde Dec 06, 2017 ]
Had a similar bose product and loved the fidelity [ Steven Aug 31, 2017 ]
Experience with Bose products. [ Michael Aug 20, 2017 ]
Seems like it would be the ideal speaker for me. Looks very smart [ Doyle W. Jul 17, 2017 ]
I have several Bose products and they are proven to be reliable and the sound is awesome too [ RICKY Jul 08, 2017 ]
Bose is a trusted brand. Watched some great reviews. Crutchfield had great reviews as well. [ Adam Jul 08, 2017 ]
1) Best reviews for a full sound bluetooth speaker 2) Handle makes it convenient to hang from a bimini top while sailing / boating 3) Would have liked it to be waterproof, but the review videos show a hose pouring over the speaker and it never stopped playing music. [ Nancy Jun 27, 2017 ]
My choice of speakers has always been Bose. [ James Jun 25, 2017 ]
Excellent sound for a small wireless device [ Patrick Jun 13, 2017 ]
As long as the sound system is bt compatible [ Kyle Dec 30, 2017 ]
I'm not sure but i don't believe so. The device appears to be a one piece non serviceable unit. [ Kyle Aug 23, 2017 ]
I've used it outdoors very successfully. It has a BIG sound and also connects really well from the source. I don't hesitate to recommend it. SK [ SALLEY L Jun 09, 2017 ]
IMO you would need two of these cover this open area. Yes they can be paired/linked with any other Bose Soundlink compatible device to my knowledge. Hope this helps. [ Kevin Jun 08, 2017 ]
Hi James. I use mine in an auto shop that is about 80' x 80' and even with the air compressors on and techs using power tools all day people complain that the speaker is too loud lol. So it should handle not only your decks but most likely your entire yard. Hope this was useful Kyle S. [ Kyle Jun 07, 2017 ]
Very good speaker that handles outdoors well, requires no cables that's the beauty of them. You can pair a max of two speakers, that could be used as L or R, or both in stereo mode. I think this should work for your situation, but everyone's music requirements are different. [ Ken Jun 07, 2017 ]
I use mine on my boat dock of similar size and it works great. And yes you can pair two units in stereo mode or what they call party mode. [ Phil Jun 07, 2017 ]
I think you will be happy with sound coverage for that area. We have a similar size patio area and we rarely turn the volume past 3/4. From what I understand you can pair two at the same time as well for stereo [ Todd Jun 07, 2017 ]
Not included in the box. Is a thin rectangle with fold out USA outlet prongs. USB cable detaches from the charge to provide additional options for charging. [ Todd May 01, 2017 ]
Yes [ Gurjeet Aug 26, 2017 ]
Yes [ James Aug 08, 2017 ]
Absolutely. I keep mine in the charging cradle full time, playing music all day. Grab and go when you're ready and battery at 100%. [ Buck Jul 25, 2017 ]
Yes [ Michael Jul 25, 2017 ]
Yes, No problem. [ randal Jul 25, 2017 ]
YES, I LOVE IT THE WAY IT SOUND . [ Gurjeet Jul 25, 2017 ]
Yes! [ CLAUDE G Jul 25, 2017 ]
