Big, brawny 360° sound

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+.

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.

Simple setup and control

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.

Simple charging

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.

Product Research


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.

  • SSP (Simple Secure Pairing): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), the SoundLink Revolve 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 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 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 in your Apple iPhone 4S or newer, or compatible Android smartphone - allowing you to access Siri & Google Assistant.

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.

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.

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 on your Apple iOS or Android device 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).

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 12 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.

  • 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 30 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 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.

How does this compare with the Revolve speaker?

The only difference "I believe", is that the triple black is newer and has a charging cradle and the gray revolve has a cord from speaker to outlet. Either way these are great speakers with beautiful sound and because of my listening experience I chose to buy two as a gift for my son.
smith cathy  Jul 21, 2020
Good sound and convenient Bose soundlink speaker Satisfactorily guaranteed!!!!

How well does this work with Apple devices - including iMac? Not a complete idiot when it comes to electronics - but maybe borderline. :-D Thanks in advance.

I mean the sound is solid for its size. Works perfect with the mac or iphone. I don't even turn it up much and the base is impressive. Definitely well built. Best part of it is actually the bucket handle, I could hang it by my pinkie and move it from place to place while picking up other stuff. Its definitely worth the it.
ikenna  Jul 03, 2018
We love this little Bluetooth speaker! The sound is amazing and it connects easily to the entire family's phones. I have a Samsung Android, and my wife and 2 teenagers have I phones - they all connect very easily. It has great battery life, is aesthetically pleasing, and overall a great product! We've had lots of Bose products over the years, and almost always go with their electronics! Take care and enjoy!
malcolm  Jun 15, 2018
Not sure about iMac but it works great with my iPhone and my iPad.
steve  Jun 15, 2018
Yes! Easy integration/pairing for iPad, MacBook Air and iPhone.

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
How is this unit for outdoor, open areas? I have a pool deck (40'x50') and a hot tub deck (24'x50'), both open (no roof). Will this unit suffice to use in an area as large as either of these decks? If not, can more than one be paired wireless?

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  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
