Bose SoundLink Revolve Plus Bluetooth Speaker Review
Bose has carved themselves a prominent name in the world of sound. They were in nearly every home in the early 2000’s it seems, with the little white box that produced incredible sound. Well, Bose has done it again with the SoundLink Revolve Plus. It is on the larger side of the portable speaker spectrum but has a convenient carry handle. It offers 360′ sound and comes in a sleek looking water resistant case. The price is quite a bit higher than the competitors so we had to give it a thorough review to see if it really is worth the price tag. Bose is a familiar name with a long standing reputation among the consumer market. Take a look at my full review to see if the Bose SoundLink Revolve Plus holds true to the companies history.

Bose has been around since 1964 with a mission to produce high quality sound for the audiophile. They just introduced the SoundLink Revolve and the SoundLink Revolve Plus. We decided to review the Revolve Plus because it is a little larger meaning it has a slightly better battery life (16 hours compared to 12) and a much better sound range coming from the dual driver 360′ sound setup. One solid benefit of the Revolve speaker line is that they can pair with other Bose Bluetooth speakers to provide multi-room audio. This is great if you’re having a BBQ or a party. The Revolve Plus is water resistant so worry not about leaving it right next to the pool or out in the rain. The sound quality is awesome for a speaker this size and will easily fill a larger sized room. The bottom is protected with a rubber boot so you can toss it into your bag or tip it over without worry. The aluminum seamless frame is very durable and can withstand most impacts. The speaker has speakerphone capabilities and a built in mic allowing you to use your google voice or SIRI options to control your music. There are also track and volume changing buttons on top of the device. The sound output is better than most speakers of this size but it will cost you. One thing is for sure. The Bose SoundLink Revolve Plus is a serious competitor in the bluetooth speaker market. Even at the higher price.
While Bose does boast having superb sound coming from such a small package, the price is a little scary. The Bose SoundLink Revolve Plus has a price tag of $299.00. That makes the bluetooth speaker one of the highest priced on the market today. The sound is one of the best in its class. If you want the convenience of a easy to use charging dock, tack on an extra $30.00. Something that should come standard at that price in my opinion. The standard, smaller Revolve speaker is $100.00 cheaper but doesn’t come with the convenient carry handle and the sound quality just isn’t there like it is with the Revolve Plus. I’d pitch in the extra funds in order to get the Bose SoundLink Revolve Plus for better bass response and a much louder volume.
The reviews for the Bose SoundLink Revolve Plus are very consistent across the board. The price is high but the quality is awesome. Everyone seems to be okay with the price after unboxing and pairing the speaker with their devices. Pairing was easy and the sound produced is better than expected by far. Any warranty issues customers have had were covered quickly with a replacement unit. Customers seemed to be hesitant with the price of the Bose SoundLink Revolve Plus but it was easily justified after some use.
The Bose SoundLink Revolve Plus is an awesome speaker that produces incredible sound in a small package. It is durable and water resistant. The battery life is a little short for the size but the 16 hour playtime only requires a quick 3 hour charge. The speakerphone option is very clear and also utilizes your devices voice commands which is pretty convenient. The volume is much louder than expected making this portable speaker perfect for a large room or jamming out in your yard. If the volume isn’t enough, you can pair it with almost any other Bose speaker to make for multi-room audio or enough volume to take control of any party. If you’re willing to throw out the $299.00, the Bose SoundLink Revolve Plus in an awesome bluetooth speaker that will not disappoint!
