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.
