Replacing the SoundLink II is the SoundLink III, a portable Bluetooth speaker from Bose, taunted as their best performing Bluetooth speaker to date.
The SoundLink III is set at almost the same price point as its predecessor but comes with more power using four drivers and two passive bass radiators and longer battery life.
There is also a range of covers to personalise your speaker and you can buy this as a bundle for a bit more money. For that you get a choice of 5 colours (gray, blue, orange, green or pink). Personally we think the case gives the speaker a retro feel.
Connection via Bluetooth is easy, simply press the Bluetooth button on the speaker then choose SoundLink Speaker III from your tablet or smartphone. It will remember up to 6 recently connected devices making it easy to reconnect the different devices.
With a fantastic 14 hours battery life and powerful sound performance, there is plenty to like about the SoundLink Speaker III.
Only ever so slightly bigger than its predecessor, it still slips easily into a bag and with a metal grill and fingerprint resistant wraparound body, you are assured of its durability.
While the unit comes with a fold flat power adapter, an optional 12V car charger is also available for those long trips.
