• Very loud
  • Portable
  • Comes in many colors
  • Rechargeable


  • Not waterproof

The Bose Soundlink Color is a portable bluetooth speaker by Bose. The speaker comes in many colors including black, blue, mint, red, and white. The speaker has good sound quality and can get very loud. The buttons at the top are intuitive and easy to use. The speaker is portable, but it will probably not fit in your pocket. You could either carry it or put it in a bag if you want to bring it somewhere. It does have a rechargeable battery so you don’t need to carry batteries or have an outlet near you to use it.

The Design

Personally, I think the Bose Soundlink Color looks really good because it comes in a lot of different colors. I also like the bluetooth functionality since you have the option to connect wirelessly to the speaker. You do have the option to connect via a 3.5mm audio cable if your device doesn’t have bluetooth, or you prefer a wired connection. The top of the speaker is also very nice. It is a soft rubber material and features six buttons. From left to right there is the power button, the bluetooth button, the aux button, a play/pause button, and volume down and up buttons. The play/pause button is great if you want to pause a song quickly without having to use your phone.

The Audio

Let’s get this out of the way…this bluetooth speaker is loud! When you use the speaker at full blast, you can hear it from far away. This would be perfect if your having a party outside with your friends or just want to play your music really loud during the day. The audio quality is also very good; the words are crisp; and it sounds good.


This speaker is bluetooth so you can connect to your phone or laptop without a cable to wirelessly play music. I found the bluetooth on this speaker to be really good. I can move my phone far away (like 20 or 30 feet), and it will still play the music. The speaker can also simultaneously be connected to two devices at once such as your computer and phone. The speaker does remember some of the previous devices paired with it, so you don’t need to constantly re-pair every device to the speaker.

Overall, if you want a good portable bluetooth speaker that you can carry around and use at parties to play music, this is a great speaker for you. It is kind of expensive at over $100 dollars. I would have liked the speaker to be waterproof so you could bring it to the pool or beach and not have to worry about it getting wet. You can buy the Soundlink Color bluetooth speaker here.
