Pair and play
This compact speaker pairs easily with your smartphone, iPad® or other Bluetooth device. It has a range of about 30 feet, so you can enjoy the sound you want without wires. Simply press and hold the Bluetooth button on the speaker's top panel, and then choose the SoundLink® Mobile speaker III from your device. The speaker remembers the most recent six devices you've used, so reconnecting is even simpler.
It’s no secret: your music is the foundation for a good time. And this speaker delivers. Four drivers and two passive radiators provide full-spectrum audio and clarity at any listening level. Plus, you’ll hear incomparable bass performance not found in other mobile speakers. And improvements in digital signal processing let you share your music louder than the previous version of our Bluetooth speaker.
Form and function

The silicone button panel protects it from dirt and dust, while a wraparound metal grille adds to its durability and resists fingerprints.
