Ahead of the holiday season, Bose, a brand well-known for its audio products, has launched a new portable Bluetooth speaker — Bose SoundLink Flex, which is designed for both strong audio performance and durability.
The company says that the device comes with features “to deliver astonishing audio performance.” It is also claimed that the custom transducer provides maximum audio clarity and “bass that you can feel in your chest.”
It comes with dual-opposing passive radiators and the company’s digital signal processing tech for minimizing distortion. The speaker can detect orientation and adjust the audio output accordingly. It is also the company’s first Bluetooth speaker that uses this Bose PositionIQ tech.
The SoundLink Flex is IP67 rated, making it water, dust, and dirt resistant. Further, the company says that it will float to the surface if dropped in water. It also claims the device is resistant to UV light and corrosion, meaning it won’t peel or flake.
It can be connected with up to eight Bluetooth devices and can be easily switched from one device to another. If you want a stereo sound experience, then you can connect two SoundLink Flex or other Bose speakers and soundbars.
It can be controlled through the company’s own Bose Connect mobile application as well as the phone’s voice assistant. The device offers up to 12 hours of playback on a single charge and the battery can be recharged with a USB-C cable.
The Bose SoundLink Flex is available in three colors options — Black, White Smoke, and Stone Blue. It is available for purchase on the company’s official website for a price of $149.
