Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III
Bose is a famous music product brand in the premium segment of the market. Most of its products are widely appreciated by the customers. From the last couple of years, this brand has successfully dominated the portable speaker world and it seems like no other manufacturer is powerful enough to give a tough competition to it. The Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III has satisfied a number of customers since it became available in the country. However, not everyone can purchase this device as it comes at a much premium price of 22388 rupees.
Solid Build Quality
The aluminum finish of the outer shell offers this speaker a tough look. You will not find any kind of creaking or flexing on any part of the body. Even the design of the speaker has changed a lot from previous generations. Now it does not come with a flap cover that was also used as a stand. Instead, the SoundLink III offers two rubber feet at the bottom that hold any kind of surface firmly. The controls are also secured with a rubberized layer, which does not allow dust to enter inside the circuit board.
You do not get many color variants to choose from, but what you do get is an option to purchase an optional soft cover painted with the color of your choice.
It is a premium speaker model comes with four driver units and produces immersive audio. You might hear some audio distortion at the highest volume. Almost every speaker currently available in the market faces this problem.
The Bose Speaker generates deep bass and sharp treble levels. Since it produces clear and loud audio, you can enjoy the music from any corner of your house. The audio is so impressive and rich that the users feel like the instruments are being played just in front of them. I cannot imagine how Bose could manage to put this incredible sound device in such a small box.
However, compared to previous generations, you will not find much difference in the quality. The music reproduction has improved slightly, but not enough that you should spend a salary for the upgrade.
Limited Connectivity Options
German brand Bose might be a beast in speaker market, but it is much behind when it is to offer a class leading multiple connectivity options on a speaker. This SoundLink speaker model comes with just Bluetooth and Aux-in connectivity options. You are even not getting a storage card slot for plug & play feature. Of course, there is a mini USB port, but that is only to use for service purpose. Surprisingly, Bose has also put some connector pins at the bottom of this device, but currently there is not a single accessory available in the market that can take benefit of them.
Extremely Long Battery Life
The Bose speaker model throws every other portable speaker out of the competition with the power efficiency features. I am not joking here, the battery backup of this device is just awesome and beyond imagination. On a single charge, it offers a whopping 14 hours of usage, which is more than enough for a regular user.
- LED indicator lights at the front
- Dust proof control panel
- Sturdy and durable build
- Offers power backup of 14 hours
- 4 active drivers and 1 passive driver
- Bluetooth range of up to 30 feet
- Great frequency response range

- No microSD card slot
In the 25000 rupees price segment, the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker is the best choice in terms of sound, power efficiency and built (design). It is a suitable audio reproduction device for all kinds of users and usages. I was amazed after learning that this device comes with four active drivers on the front and one passive driver on the back. However, if you already own an earlier version of this model, then there is no need for an upgrade.

Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Music System
Do you want a speaker that can sync music over a wireless network? We are aware that ordinary outdated speakers lack modern connectivity features. Well, Bose might have a product that can satisfy both these needs. The Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Music System comes loaded a ton of extra features and is compatible with a wide range of modern technologies. It produces superior audio and is capable of giving a studio like feel to the users. However, you should understand that we are discussing premium features here, all of which come at very premium price of 19013 rupees.
A Design That Mimics the Surroundings
Bose has designed this product in a much innovative way. Since it is small, place it anywhere at a suitable place in your house like under the bed, around a shelf or even in the smallest corners. The speaker looks so great that you would want to show it off to friends. All its controls are located the top, so the users will not have to struggle to change the settings.

Moreover, this speaker also offers traditional features like Bluetooth and Aux-in connectivity.
Comes With a Remote
One of the main highlights of the SoundTouch 10 speaker system is that it also comes with a remote that features easy to understand controls. On this remote, you can find track control keys, volume rockers as well as all the buttons that are featured on the speaker itself. Interestingly, the remote also sports a set of like and dislike buttons, which are used to vote for individual music tracks.
Superb Audio Quality
Do not get yourself fooled by the size of this device. The drivers of this Speaker produce studio-grade sound. To be more precise, this Bose product is a full range speaker generates deep bass and ultra-sharp treble. However, as a pro user you will miss the equalizer controls, which are, exist neither on the button control segment of the speaker nor on the remote. I am unable to understand why the brand Bose devalued such important feature on a speaker.
Surprisingly, the manufacturer has also launched a dedicated Smartphone app to control this speaker system. Installing the app, you get access to a whole lot more settings to play with. This helps a lot to those users have a tendency to misplace remotes.
