Bose SoundLink Revolve Bluetooth Speaker Unboxing Preview

So I got a new Portable Bluetooth Speaker. Did I need a new Portable BT Speaker? Some might say no (like my wife for instance), but I on the other hand I felt it was time for an upgrade from my 5 year old Kinivo BTX270 Wireless Bluetooth Portable Speaker I've been using for a while now.

I have to say my trusty Kinivo BTX270 Wireless Bluetooth Portable Speaker has been good to me and survived many trips, falls and the battery seems just as good as the day I got it. It's just that I have always liked the huge sound that seems to come out of the Bose Portable BT Speakers, even their super compact speaker line have a great overall sound with lots of base for such a small package.

My main criteria for a new Bluetooth Portable Speaker was:

  • Super portable and easy to throw in my backpack without taking up too much room.
  • A big sound in a small package with lots of bass and clear mids and highs.
  • Because this speaker was often going to be used in group situations I wanted a speaker that sounded good all around it, not just in one sweet spot.
  • A quality solid build that could take some abuse including a little bit of moisture.
  • Enough battery life to last the day off and on so I don't have to worry about the tunes cutting out right when the party starts to happen.

Well I'm very happy to say that the Bose SoundLink Revolve Bluetooth Speaker meets all of my criteria and yes at a bit of a cost but big expectations do come at a bigger price tag.

So far I am very pleased with my Bose SoundLink Revolve Bluetooth Speaker and I look forward to taking it with me shortly on my trip to Las Vegas for my 50th birthday!
