Bose SoundLink Flex Bluetooth Speaker Targets Adventurous Consumers With Its Rugged Design
Bose, an American company known for its audio equipment, has launched its new portable Bluetooth speaker for adventure junkies. The Bose SoundLink Flex joins the current family of SoundLink portable speakers: SoundLink Micro, SounLinkColor II, SoundLink Mini BT 2, and SoundLink Revolve 2. The SoundLink Flex, as its name suggests, comes with durable construction and flexibility to use it outdoors. It comes with a powder-coated steel mesh grill, which prevents it from rusting and discolouration caused by UV rays. Bose claims, if you happen to accidentally drop it in a pool it will float, and its IP67 certification (for water and dust resistance) assures trouble-free operation.
Bose SoundLink Flex Features And Specifications
The Bose SoundLink Flex comes with a silicone exterior. It measures 3.6 x 7.9 x 2.1 inches and weighs 600g. It gets a fabric utility belt, which lets you hook up to your backpack via a carabiner. The speaker is equipped with a microphone to take calls and control the voice assistant via your phone. On the exterior, it gets a few buttons to control the volume, powering on/off the device, and activating Bluetooth pairing.
The SoundLink Flex comes with a custom transducer coupled with dual-opposing passive radiators, which promise a loud and clear audio output outdoors. If this doesn’t satisfy you, then you can connect it with a second SoundLink Flex or any other Bose speaker to enjoy its Stereo or Party Mode. The Flex also comes with an interesting feature called PositionIQ, which detects the speaker’s position, whether it is hanging on your backpack, placed on a table, or placed on its back, and optimizes its output accordingly.
The Bose SoundLink Flex comes with a USB Type-C charging port and takes up to 4 hours to get fully charged. It promises up to 12 hours of non-stop music playback on a single charge. The speaker comes with Bluetooth 4.2 for pairing and a range of about 30 feet. The SimpleSync connectivity option lets it pair easily with other compatible Bose smart soundbars at your home. The Bose Connect app lets you customize its settings, pair with devices, and update its firmware via your smartphone.
