From the pool to the park to the patio, the SoundLink® Color Bluetooth® speaker II is a tough and water-resistant companion that's perfect for any adventure. Featuring a soft-touch silicone exterior and a built-in microphone for calls, it's your go-to speaker with bold sound, wherever you need it.

Black SoundLink® Color II

Innovative technology for an inspired performance

SoundLink® Color II is a result of Bose engineering, so it's packed with exclusive technologies. Like the dual opposing passive radiators, which help it pump out sound while keeping vibrations to an absolute minimum. It's how we make a speaker that rocks your world without moving an inch.

Rugged. Soft. Water resistant.

The SoundLink® Color Bluetooth® speaker II is designed for life on the go. The wrap-around silicon body gives it the compact durability you need to throw it in a bag or backpack and take it anywhere. But it's rounded with a soft-touch surface, so it's still easy to carry in your hand. And, the SoundLink® Color II is water resistant, so you can listen by the pool or lake, too. It's tough enough to keep up, with a design that keeps your music portable.

Built to go

Play your music wherever you are. No matter what you're doing. Weighing in at just 0.54 kilograms (1.2 lb), SoundLink® Color II is just a little heavier than a football. And using it is a breeze. Control multiple functions with the press of a button, like answering calls on speakerphone, skipping tracks, switching between connected devices and more. And you can take SoundLink® Color II along for day trips without missing a beat of your music. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 8 hours of playtime.

SoundLink® Color II's top button panel

Easy connecting. Easy listening.

Enjoy any song from almost any device — if it's Bluetooth®, you have everything you need to start playing. SoundLink® Color II features a reliable wireless range of about 9 metres, and connecting is seamless. Voice prompts talk you through the pairing and you can quickly switch between two connected devices. It even remembers the last eight most recently used devices, so you can reconnect your phone, your brother's tablet or your housemate's girlfriend's laptop.

An app can make the difference

We want you to get the most out of your Bluetooth® speaker. So we designed this free app that makes connecting and switching between devices easier than ever. Bose Connect will unlock future product features, give you access to product tips and even let you personalise your settings. The app will also make sure your speaker always has the latest software with quick and easy updates. See how a simple, intuitive app makes all the difference.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Bose Bluetooth Speaker I have been wanting a SoundLink bluetooth speaker for a while now. I know Bose makes exceptional products. This product is like all the rest. Easy to set up. I actually installed the app first which made it super easy. Plays my favorite music with a rich tone that I am enjoying in my family room right now. But I can take it outside and enjoy it too. And it is waterproof to boot. I love the colors that it comes in too. So don't hesitate to buy one. It is a good price too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little speaker!! The Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth speaker II ships with only a partial charge so I had to charge it when I opened it. It includes a USB jack so it can be charged by plugging it into your computer. However, it does not include a block for the USB and it does not include a plug in adapter. Fortunately, I have several chargers and I was able to use my Kindle charger to charge the speaker. It also has NFC pairing - NFC is a technology that enables Bluetooth devices to establish wireless communication with each other by simply touching the devices together. I tried that with my t.v. and it worked perfectly. The speaker has voice prompts to assist with pairing. The prompts clearly tell you what device the speaker is paired to (LG phone etc) and also what the battery level is. But if you don't want the voice it can be disabled. Bose also has a free app you can download to your phone or device to control the speaker and switch between devices connected to the Bose Soundlink II. I chose not to use the app because I have no space on my phone for more apps. There is also a USB jack to plug in devices that might not have Bluetooth capability. It's listed as being able to keep track of 8 devices. Also, the speaker remembers multiple audio sources, so you can switch back and forth between a phone, a computer, etc You can also use the Soundlink as a speakerphone to make and receive calls. When you receive a call the voice prompts announces it and you can easily answer your phone with no loss of connection. There's a built-in microphone so you can answer calls without having to pick your phone up. When you end the call the speaker will automatically begin playing music again. It is very lightweight and portable so you can easily bring it just about anywhere. If you like to move around a lot or listen to music or news outside, this speaker is great for that. The product features state that it can connect wirelessly from up to 30' away. I found that to be true. I put the speaker in my bedroom doorway while I was painting my kitchen; two rooms away and the sound was great- loud and very clear. The Bose speaker is water resistant, meaning it won't affect it if you get a few drops of water on it. However, it is not waterproof or immersible/submersible so it can't be used in water and it can't be totally submerged in water. All the buttons - Power, Bluetooth indicator, volume, language selector and Multi-function- are on the top for easy access and the charging port/headphone jack are on the sides. The only issue I had was that the buttons are very hard to see. They're either white or a very light gray and they blend in so much with the black background that they're almost not visible. pressure sensitive controls Most importantly, the speaker sounds fantastic --the quality of the sound is very good. The sound is full, rich and clear and the volume is surprisingly loud. It's a disappointing now to watch t.v. or listen to music without the speaker I would definitely recommend this speaker

FAQs

FAQs

What are the differences between the SoundLink® Color Bluetooth ® speaker II, SoundLink® Bluetooth ® speaker III and SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth ® speaker II?

While they're all designed for portability and Bluetooth® connectivity, SoundLink speakers differ in size, battery life and composition.

• SoundLink® Bluetooth® speaker III is the most powerful portable speaker from Bose®, is made from premium materials and has battery life of up to 14 hours
• SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker II delivers full sound with dramatically deep lows, is available in two colours (Carbon or Pearl) and has battery life of ten hours
• SoundLink® Color Bluetooth® speaker II features a water-resistant design, has a battery life of up to eight hours and is available in four colours: Aquatic Blue, Coral Red, Soft Black or Polar White

What purpose do the voice prompts on the SoundLink® Color Bluetooth ® speaker II serve?

The voice prompts serve two key purposes. First, they provide guidance during the Bluetooth® pairing and connection process so the customer understands how it works. Second, they identify the connected source devices by name, simplifying usage with more than one source device.

Is it possible to disable voice prompts on the SoundLink® Color Bluetooth ® speaker II?

Yes. Voice prompts can be disabled by simultaneously pressing the "+" (volume up) and "-" (volume down) buttons. We recommend leaving voice prompts enabled because of the additional functionality they provide.

What is the range of the SoundLink® Color Bluetooth ® speaker II's Bluetooth ® performance?

The SoundLink® Color II's Bluetooth® link is capable of stable operation at up to 9 m (30 ft). Performance can be affected by obstacles such as walls or metal, interference from Wi-Fi® or other wireless devices and device manufacturers' Bluetooth® implementations.

How many devices can pair with the SoundLink® Color Bluetooth ® speaker II at once? What happens if I have several Bluetooth®-enabled devices in my house?

The SoundLink® Color II keeps track of the last eight devices to have paired and connected with it, dropping the least recently used when a new one is paired. When in Bluetooth® mode, the SoundLink® Color II searches for and connects to the two most recently connected active Bluetooth®-enabled devices. It will only receive audio from one device at a time.
If you wish to connect to a previously paired device other than the one(s) already connected, press the Bluetooth® button. Press once to identify the currently connected devices; press again (within three seconds) to search through other recently connected devices on the pairing list. If you wish to connect to a new device, press and hold the button until the indicator light blinks blue. If voice prompts have been disabled, the Bluetooth® button will behave differently; one press will make the SoundLink® Color II ready to pair.

What happens when my phone is streaming music to the SoundLink® Color Bluetooth ® speaker II and a call comes in?

When a call comes in, the audio on the SoundLink® Color II will pause, and the call will ring through the speaker. If you wish to answer the call through the SoundLink® Color II, simply press the multi-function button to answer the call. You can now talk into the speaker itself to conduct your phone call. Once you end your call, music playback will resume. Some details of this experience will vary depending on the implementation by the phone manufacturer.

What is the purpose of the multi-function button?

When in audio playback mode, the multi-function button allows for play (press), pause (press), track forwards (double press) and track backwards (triple press). Pressing and holding the multi-function button will activate the voice control capabilities of your device (for voice dialling and access to Siri or Google Now™). Pressing the multi-function button again will exit the voice control mode.

When there is an incoming call, pressing the multi-function button will answer the call, and pressing and holding it will reject the call. During an active call, pressing the multi-function button will end the call.

What is the battery performance of the SoundLink® Color Bluetooth ® speaker II?

Battery performance varies with the content played and volume at which it is played. In typical usage, the SoundLink® Color II battery lasts up to eight hours.

How long does it take to charge the SoundLink® Color Bluetooth ® speaker II's battery?

While not playing music, much of the SoundLink® Color II battery's charge can be recovered in 3 hours when using a USB power source of at least one amp of current. Charging from alternative USB power sources or when playing music may take longer.

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

No. SoundLink® Color speaker II's wireless connection is Bluetooth® only.

Can the SoundLink® Color Bluetooth ® speaker II be used to provide audio for video, such as watching a film on a tablet?

Yes. However, the quality of the experience—specifically, synchronisation between audio and video—can be influenced by the implementation of Bluetooth® on the device, and the best performance will occur when wireless interference is minimised by keeping the SoundLink® Color II and the device in close proximity, less than 2 m (6 ft), with no objects between them. Use of a Wi-Fi® network in the area may also affect performance.

Does the SoundLink® Color Bluetooth ® speaker II have a stereo pairing feature?

No. The SoundLink® Color speaker II currently does not have this feature. However, we plan to enable it with a software update in the future.
