With true omni-directional performance, and an entirely new acoustic design, Revolve speakers spread deep, jaw dropping sound in every direction -- from a seamless aluminium design.
“When SoundLink first hit the market, it took the industry by storm," said Glenn Gomes-Casseres, director of products for Bose wireless speakers. “We didn’t want to make small improvements to the audio that made it famous. We wanted the difference to be so dramatic, that it would take just one song to hear the best sound you’ve ever heard from a little speaker -- all over again.”
Bose says it developed an entirely new acoustic package then matched it with a cylindrical single piece aluminum enclosure. The speakers don't have a front or back, rather they combine dual opposing passive radiators with a powerful, ultra-efficient transducer -- positioned face down -- and a new patented acoustic deflector. A 'pressure trap' eliminates distortion and sound radiates uniformly in every direction.
Both new Revolve models feature an IPX4-rating to withstand spills, rain, and pool splashes; and rugged durability to survive knocks, drops, and bumps. A quarter-twenty thread on the bottom of each makes for easy mounting on a tri-pod.
Revolve is 15.2 cm high x 8.2 cm deep, weighs a mere 0.66 kg, and provides up to 12-hours of battery life. Revolve+ is slightly bigger for more performance at 18.4 cm high x 10.5 cm deep, 0.9 kg, and up to 16-hours of playtime. Both can pair through NFC and integrate microphones to use as a speakerphone, or with Siri and Google Assistant.
The Bose Connect app can sync two SoundLinks. A new Stereo Mode enables left-right pairing and a new Party Mode lets you play the same music on both simultaneously.
