Poor design out of the box

published

Spend $450 roughly and doesn't even have a power adapter that fits into a standard double power point if something is in the other socket its to wide. Simple things cannot get correct poor design before l even start to charge it straight out of the box.

What's the point of a Bluetooth Speaker That Can't Find Bluetooth?

published

My laptop connects seamlessly via Bluetooth to my mouse, phone, earphones, etc etc. It is also paired with my Soundlink speaker, but will the speaker connect? Not a chance! The Bose Soundlink just sits there saying that it can't find anything to connect to. Wasted so much time looking for a resolution to this problem. I used to think Bose was the top of sound quality. Not any longer. This is my last Bose purchase.

Purchased in for $299.

Another Battery Failure

published

Reading other reviews I now know I am not the only one whose Bose Soundlink Resolve simply stopped charging. My wife also bought one as they have great sound, hers has also stopped charging. Researching on the net I have discovered that Bose is aware of the problem. Well and truly out of warranty I now have useless landfill (paperweights?). I would not advise buying this particular Bose model.

Useless - stopped charging.

published

Bought from JB hifi 11/ 2018 $299, had trouble from the beginning charging it after battery empty. Then just stopped charging altogether. Contacted Bose $150 to fix. Not worth it out of warranty. Very disappointing. Dont bother.

Purchased in at JB Hi-Fi for $299.

The Bose Soundlink Revolve with the old firmware is great! The new Firmware is a Disappointment

published

If you can Get A Bose Soundlink Revolve Pre the notorious 3.0.4 Firmware it is a great unit. Poor value for money if it has the 3.0.4 firmware (has poor bass response and connectivity issues (just google it :-) ))
Don't whatever you do, don't let it update if you have the old firmware.

Poor sound quality

published

Nice design but very poor sound quality. Very disappointed with the speaker. Not what I was expecting for $300 . The design was nice and the connectivity was very easy though

Purchased in at Bose for $300.

Static noise

published

These speakers have a static noise that is particularly noticeable at low listening levels and in quiet environments. From reading the Bose community forum it turns out this is a design defect and applies to all samples of both the Revolve and Revolve +. None of the reset/repair/replacement options solve this problem. I strongly recommend NOT to buy this product.

Amazing sound but totally frustrating to use

published

The sound from this device is truly incredible for it's size but we often give up trying to pair it and revert to our cheap as chips JBL. Seriously, why doesn't a $350 Bose product just pair when you turn it on in range of a Bluetooth device just like the el cheapo JBL does??? I've even had it paired and playing and the Bluetooth drops out with the phone sitting right next to it! The kids are more techy than us and even they say it's well below par. If it didn't sound so amazing it would be in the bin by now.

Charging cable broke in a day

published

Sound is fine
The cradle is cheap and very poorly made - pins bent after a day
The usb female side only accommodated half the usb male side and snapped also
First soundlink mini was made with far greater quality than this piece of junk !!
Sound beats all the others

Questions & Answers

Tom
Tomasked

I bought the Bose Soundlink Revolve last week and like its perfect sound. The problem is that at most time it can not play VLC from My Apple iPhone. Meanwhile it can easily connect to any Sansung iPhone and plays everything. Do I have to change my phone or choose other device?
