Bose SoundLink Revolve

Dubbed their best sounding wireless speaker ever — and you know they’ve made some great sounding stuff already — the Bose SoundLink Revolve and higher-end, handle-equipped Revolve+ are worth a listen. The speaker’s name and rounded shape point towards omnidirectional sound, and indeed both feature two opposing passive radiators, a downward-facing transducer, and an acoustic deflector, all ensuring that its sound is as clear (and loud) regardless of your position. The speaker’s aluminum shell is also sealed for water-resistance and the top and bottom are actually made of rubber to absorb shocks and bumps — and to ensure the speaker survives falls and a bit of roughhousing. Both also boast a universal threaded mount for attaching to a tripod or GorillaPod (or other accessory), 12 to 16 hours of battery life (for the Revolve and Revolve+, respectively), and work with the Bose Connect app for pairing multiple devices to make stereo setups or extend the music across larger areas with multiple other Bose speakers in Party Mode.
