SoundLink® Color Bluetooth® speaker II 




Bold sound for wherever life takes you

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 silicone 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.

Bose Connect app mobile screen

One app. Complete control.

The Bose Connect app gives you easy access to everything your product has to offer. Get tips, unlock product features and personalise your settings, so you can spend more time enjoying the music instead of setting it up.

You can also easily manage your speaker’s BLUETOOTH® connections with a single swipe, so everyone can have a turn being the DJ. And when loud just isn’t loud enough, turn it up with Party Mode to play two wireless speakers simultaneously. Or switch to Stereo Mode for dedicated left and right playback, giving you a full and dynamic surround sound experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome sound, simple and fun I bought this last year and have fallen in love with it, I can honestly say that I am now emotionally attached to it. The sound at every volume level is perfectly balanced for such a small speaker. It produces pure clear crystal sound and I listen to everything classical, hip-hop, rock and so on. The highs are perfect and the lows are clear. The battery recently got damaged, don't know how but one phone call and it was all sorted. Free delivery to and from, and when I got it back it was literally a new speaker. Bose even put on a new cover (which they call a sleeve) without even questioning where the little knicks came from. All I asked was why it wont turn on or recharge. So thank you Bose amazing service.

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?

Yes, by switching to Stereo Mode using the Bose Connect app for dedicated left and right playback.

Is the SoundLink® Color Bluetooth® speaker II compatible with the Amazon Echo Dot?

Yes, you can connect any Bose Bluetooth® speaker to the Amazon Echo Dot. The Echo Dot connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather and more—instantly.
