Overview

Overview

Share the music. Show your style.

Meet the speaker that brings your music and friends together—with a style that’s all your own. The SoundLink® Bluetooth speaker III is our best-performing mobile Bluetooth speaker. It plays louder and longer than its popular predecessor, with advanced Bose® technologies that reproduce the fullness, clarity and depth of your music.

  • Our best-performing Bluetooth speaker plays your music with fullness, depth and clarity
  • Wireless connection to your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth device
  • Up to 14 hours of music from rechargeable lithium-ion battery
  • Colored accessory covers personalize your speaker and provide further protection from scratches

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.

Powerful performance

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

Sure, the sound draws a crowd. But this speaker also has a sleek look you’ll appreciate. Curved edges and a thin profile make a bold statement, especially when you add a touch of color with an optional cover. The speaker easily slips right into a bag or backpack. The silicone button panel protects it from dirt and dust, while a wraparound metal grille adds to its durability and resists fingerprints.

Personalize it!

Optional soft covers add flair—and further protection—for your SoundLink® speaker III.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anyone who buys anything else is an idiot I think I've had this for about a year now, and wow. Undeniably the greatest compact Bluetooth speaker available. I would never consider buying anything different. I've used this in a 45'x65' work shop and it completely filled the space as good as two large speakers would have. The sound stays full, solid bass, extremely clear highs, no part of the sound drowns out a different part of the sound. I'm absolutely a full believer in Bose being the only way to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Travels the world with us I bought my unit over a year ago and we absolutely love it. The sound reproduction is the best of any portable Bluetooth device, and I have owned various other brands. Frequency response is excellent, with solid bass and crystal sounding high frequencies. The only thing I would like to see is USB charging capabilities, it would reduce the need to pack one more charger. This is the first item that gets packed for our travels, be it across state to the beach or our carry-on for overseas trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best speaker I've heard This speaker has great base, natural highs. It is has very clear sound through out the spectrum. The bass is pounding, I have to turn it down, The Bluetooth works just fine except when I am close to a very strong emp signal, like the television or SMUD's electric broadcaster(electrical service meter) Very Happy with the product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sound Awesome Batter Life. I don't think I have ever done a review before but I just had to let you know about this awesome bluetooth wireless speaker. I have had this Soundlink III for about 4 months. I have never heard such sound come out of such a small unit. I am a Bose fan. Just about every thing I have that has to do with sound I have.

FAQs

FAQs

How is this speaker different from the SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker II?

The SoundLink® speaker III plays louder and has better bass reproduction than the SoundLink® Mini speaker II. This makes it well-suited for sharing music with others. If you're looking for a lighter speaker (1.5 lb) with increased portability, the SoundLink® Mini speaker II is a great choice for personal listening.

Does the SoundLink® Bluetooth® speaker III support Wi-Fi® or WiDi?

No, the wireless connection for this speaker is Bluetooth only. If you’re looking for speakers that connect via Wi-Fi, have a look at our SoundTouch® Wi-Fi music systems.

What is the battery life for the SoundLink® speaker III?

The battery lasts up to 14 hours on a single charge, a 30% increase over the previous model.

Does the speaker have a built-in cover?

No, the new industrial design lets the speaker stand upright without the built-in cover featured in the previous model.

How do I control the speaker?

Power and volume controls are located on the speaker itself. Otherwise, use your smartphone or other paired device to select a playlist, streaming audio source, etc. No remote control necessary.

What is the wireless range of the SoundLink® Mini speaker?

On average, the speaker will work within 30 feet of your paired Bluetooth device. Walls and construction materials can affect reception at times.

Can I stream music (Pandora®, Rhapsody®, etc.) from my computer to the SoundLink® Color speaker?

Yes, as long as your computer is enabled for Bluetooth and is within 30 feet of the speaker.

If I'm using my smartphone with the SoundLink® speaker III, will phone calls play through the speaker?
