Bose today announced its Bluetooth speakers — the new SoundLink Revolve and SoundLink Revolve+. The speakers have true omni-directional performance, and an entirely new acoustic design. Also Revolve speakers spread sound in every direction — from a seamless aluminium design.
To do that, Bose engineers started from scratch. An entirely new acoustic package was developed first, and then matched with the cylindrical shape it required, and a single-piece aluminium enclosure. There’s no “front” or “back,” because Revolve speakers don’t have to be pointed to favour one location over another. They combine dual-opposing passive-radiators with a transducer — positioned face-down — and a new patented acoustic deflector.
With an added “pressure trap” to eliminate distortion, sound radiates uniformly in every direction — and without the sweet spots and frequency drop-offs of conventional 360-degree speakers. Set in the middle of the room, a corner, or anywhere in between, Revolve speakers deliver the same experience for everyone. Music is spacious, clear, and when you want — remarkably loud.
Both new Revolve models are just at home outside. They feature an IPX4-rating to withstand spills, rain, and pool splashes; and rugged durability to survive dings, drops, and bumps. A quarter-twenty thread on the bottom of each makes for easy mounting on a tri-pod for listening in the yard or an outdoor party.
Revolve is 6” high x 3 ¼” deep, weighs 1.5 pounds, and provides up to 12-hours of battery life. Revolve+ is slightly bigger for more performance at 7 ¼” high x 4” deep, 2 pounds, and up to 16-hours of playtime. Both can pair through NFC, feature plain-language voice-prompts for fool-proof set-up, and integrate microphones to use as a speakerphone, or with Siri and Google Assistant.
The free Bose Connect app now syncs two SoundLinks — any combination, for any models starting with the SoundLink Color II. New Stereo Mode enables left-right pairing, and new Party Mode lets you play the same music on both simultaneously.
And the original Color became a hit with its rugged design and colors, and has just been updated with the Color II. Today, Revolve and Revolve+ usher in the next generation of SoundLink, made possible by the same obsession that started it all — to make the smallest, best sounding wireless speaker ever.
The SoundLink Revolve and SoundLink Revolve+ Bluetooth speakers will be available beginning May 26, 2017, 2017 for INR 19,900 and INR 24,500, respectively, and come in two colors – Triple Black and Lux Gray. SoundLink Revolve and SoundLink Revolve+ are sold at Bose stores, Bose.com, authorized Bose dealers. Additional information can be found at Bose.com.
