I was looking for a portable bluetooth speaker for my trip back home and decided to try out the Bose SoundLink Color. I have a pair of Bose SoundTrue (on ear) headphones that I absolutely love, so the $129 SoundLink Color seemed the obvious choice.
I’m quite impressed with the quality and punch that lightweight and easily portable speaker packs. The acoustic guitars of SiriusXM’s Coffee House sound absolutely wonderful on the speaker (as they do on the headphones as well). I was quite surprised to find that the SoundLink Color also emanates a deep, quality bass. If I hid the speaker you’d be easily fooled into thinking the music was coming from a much larger sound system. I’ve heard Beats Pills and I have to say the SoundLink Color easily exceeds the quality of even the $300 XL pill.
The audio guided bluetooth pairing is pleasant to use. I have the speaker paired to both my iPad and phone and it was easy to set up and switch between either. The battery life is also impressive, I haven’t run it dry yet. That said, I usually leave it plugged in while hooked up (via the aux in port) to my SiriusXM unit in the bedroom.
I love listening to acoustic Coffee House music on the SoundLink Color in the morning while enjoying my coffee. I highly recommend the speaker if you’re in the market for an easily transportable bluetooth speaker with exceptional quality. Pick one up for $129 and hear for yourself!
