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 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 Excellent little speaker I have been using this speaker for a few weeks now and am absolutely thrilled with its performance. The sound quality is excellent just what you would expect from a Bose product without being too heavy on the bass so is pleasant to listen to a variety of music. I am also thrilled with its bluetooth capabilities, it is easy to connect to a wide range of devices and picks up a signal from quite a distance so doesn't break up even when wandering round the house. There are no worries if you're out in the garden with the product even in the inclement British weather as the product is splash-proof, it also feels pretty sturdy with three children running around. It has a very tactile feel to it and I think the range of colours that the product comes in makes it appealable to all ages. The battery life is also excellent only needing to charge it once in two weeks despite being used for a few hours a day, ad it will definitely be accompanying us on our summer camping trips. I would recommend this product to all family and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bose sound link color 2 I wanted to try the Bose sound link color 2 as i was thinking of buying a bluetooth speaker, i have herd so many good reports about Bose equipment but never had the privledge of owning any,so when i was accepted to test the Bose sound link color 2 i was delighted. First thoughts when opening the box was how small the speaker was, my first thoughts where it would be nice and portable which it is as it has a built in battery, second thought was as it is small it is going to lack in audio quality well i was wrong on this one the performance of the Bose sound link color 2 blew me away, i have had the speaker 3 weeks now and still cant beleive how good it sounds, not only does it sound good it looks good as well and wouldn't look out of place in any home. I have used it whilst in the shower, cooking in the kitchen, i even used it instead of my main audio system whilst i had a few friends over for drinks they didn't beleive i was playing my music through this tiny speaker and my phone, i also connected it to my smart home system to stream music and it worked flawlessly. The speaker is very easy to use and was up and running within minutes connected to both my phone and smart home system.The only negitave thing i can say about the Bose sound link color 2 is that it doesn't come standard with an adopter plug this is a small point but it really would be nice to have one included. I would highly recomennd anybody in the market for a portable bluetooth speaker to check out the Bose Revolve as you wont be disapointed. Thanks Sam

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.

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.
