Bose SoundLink Color II Complete Review is Finally Here
The original Bose SoundLink Colour Bluetooth speaker was all about affordability combined with high standards that are the very definition of Bose. With the sequel to the original, Bose SoundLink Colour II offers just the same quality sound which comes amalgamated with varied latest features which includes being resistant to water as one of them.
With dimensions of 5.25×2.25 inches, the Bluetooth speakers weigh only 1.25 pounds. The aforementioned dimensions make the speakers ultra portable in nature which boasts of incredible sound quality packed inside of a compact size. The speaker comes with the IPX-4 certification for water resistance. In other words, people can take the Bose SoundLink Colour II speakers anywhere with them, from the patio to the beach to the kitchen and everywhere in between. The company let go of the hard plastic material which was used for making the Colour II’s predecessor. Instead, the company has used silicone shell which is durable and rubbery and soft at the same time. But, the silicone shell is more attracted towards the lint and dust present in the surrounding. However, the aforementioned fact in no way undermines the fact that the Colour II Bluetooth speaker is a more robust compact speaker when compared to its predecessor.
The users are guided by voice prompts when setting up the Colour II speakers. The voice prompts work from a maximum of 30 feet range. The device holds all the buttons like power, volume as well as pairing options at the top. The company has even inculcated Google and Siri in the speaker’s voice abilities. This in turn allows the users to make phone calls and even finish prompts while being connected to any smart device. One can pair up the Bose SoundLink Colour II Bluetooth speaker upto 8 devices and enjoy unlimited music for upto 8 hours on single charge. All one needs is a USB cable for charging the Colour II speakers. People can make use of the Android and iOS companion application for renaming the speaker as well as checking the battery percentage and enabling or disabling the voice prompts.
Experts are of the opinion that the Bose SoundLink Colour II Bluetooth speakers outperform several Bluetooth speakers of the same size. But the lack of overall bass in the sound quality is hard to ignore. On can get the speakers in four colour options which include the Soft Black, Polar White, Coral Red and Aquatic Blue. Thus, all in all, the good things about the Bose SoundLink Colour II includes the compact portability of the Bluetooth speaker, delivery of impressive sound when compared to its size along with 8 hours of uninterrupted battery life. The speaker boasts of speakerphone abilities apart from being water resistant. However, the speaker comes with its own set of cons as well. The Bluetooth speaker lacks AC adapter in the box while the speaker’s soft-to-the-touch finish lures the lint and dust. But, in a nutshell, the Bose SoundLink Colour II is designed modestly and is an excellent water resistant Bluetooth speaker with enhanced sound quality.
