Bose Soundlink III

Now that we have so many choices for our music streaming options, we have to figure out how we are going to transmit those audio waves to our ears. You may want to keep your music private by using headphones, or share your sound with others via a nice quality speaker.

If your speaker needs go beyond you and your close friends, it may be time to invest in a mid-range speaker that will provide enough sound to keep the party going, while still being portable enough to take with you to the next party of the night.

Bose’s SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III is a perfect mix of high-quality, loud audio output and small sized portability.

Bose is known for its high-quality audio and this speaker fits the bill with four drivers and two passive radiators that deliver full spectrum audio in a small sized speaker.

The unit is about 10 inches long and just over five inches tall. It weighs about three pounds, so it is small enough be used as a personal portable speaker, but it is powerful enough to fill a room without effort

Connect your iPhone 6 via Bluetooth for wireless audio playback. The speaker remembers the most recent six devices, so it isn’t likely you’ll have to re-pair your iPhone any time soon, even when your buddy wants to play his band’s new song from his own smartphone.

It runs on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can last up to 14 hours of playback on one charge.

There is a 3.5mm audio input jack on the backside, so you can connect other gadgets, like a DVD player or laptop, and hear your music in wide-ranging sound. There is also a Micro-USB port so you can connect the speaker to your computer for regular software updates.

You can get the speaker in basic black and silver. Or, if you are a football fan, you can choose from a number of different styles based on NFL teams, like the Giants, Packers, Seahawks, and more.

The Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III is available on Amazon for between $250 and $300, depending on your style option. There is also a cover, specifically designed for the case in a variety of colors for $35.

    This is a really nice speaker even though it’s very pricey. One big time annoyance for me though is the fact that the speaker will turn itself off after a brief period of time if it doesn’t sense any audio stream. Only way to turn it back on is pushing the “on” switch. Of course this repeats again and again. Called Bose support and they said it’s by design even though the previous 2 generations of this speaker didn’t do this. Silly.

    So tell me please why the one with no NFL logo is $50 more? I’ll spin by BestBuy today and take a listen but no way Id shell out $300. I’d much rather get the pair of amplified speakers from Vanatoo I’ve had my eye on for years, even though they aren’t super easily portable for $200 more as I’m sure they will blow this thing away sound wise. My JBL charge that I got for like $75 does just fine for on the go. I use at the beach and really don’t care if it gets dirty etc this thing would make me nervous.

  • This is too big for me. My Bose SoundLink Mini is a much better option for portability, and EASILY fills the entire house with music. It packs a ton of punch for it’s size. And only $199.

    The most secure unlocking site I have ever use for AT&T devices is attt-iphoneunlocking, never needed people over 6 hours to factory unlock some of my locked phones, we have the energy to factory unlock the new 6 and 6PLUS as well.
