Experience robust Bluetooth audio with the silver SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III from Bose. This speaker incorporates four drivers and two passive radiators to produce dynamic and clear stereo sound. Integrated Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity allows you to wirelessly pair with other Bluetooth-enabled devices. A wired 3.5mm audio interface is also onboard for wired audio connections.

The built-in rechargeable battery provides approximately 14 hours of playing time; a wall charger is included with the speaker. This speaker also has a micro-USB interface, which is used to update the speaker's software for ongoing Bluetooth device compatibility. At 10.1" wide and with a weight of 3.03 lb, the Bose SoundLink III was designed with portability in mind.

Pair and Play
The Bose SoundLink III is designed to easily pair with Bluetooth-enabled devices like iPads and smartphones. It has a wireless transmission range of about 30 feet for extended operation without wires. To pair, simply press and hold the Bluetooth button on the speaker's top panel, and then choose the SoundLink Mobile Speaker III from your device. The speaker remembers the most recent six devices you've used, making reconnecting simple.
Powerful Performance
Four drivers and two passive radiators are engineered to provide full-spectrum audio and clarity, even at high volume levels. Bass performance has also been optimized for a dynamic listening experience. The digital signal processing has been improved over previous generation models for enhanced sound at louder volumes.
Form and Function
The speaker's curved edges and thin profile are designed to give the SoundLink III a sleek appearance. The silicone button panel helps protect it from dirt and dust, while a wraparound metal grille adds to its durability and resists fingerprints.

    I love this little/big sound system. My sole purpose was to have it outdoors on the patio and near the pool. It's not water friendly so keep it far from any possible spills and splashes though. I have quite a large yard and pool area, the sound fills my yard and I have yet to turn it full blast, no need.The mobility of the SoundLink III is awesome and the sound impresses others everywhere I take it. Because I am a little fastidious about damage I did buy the rubber cover offered in accessories, but I prefer a more secure and protected way of transporting my little gem. A small, adjustable camera bag did the trick. Why four stars instead of five, I wish it were easier to carry. Although if I wanted "easier to carry" I could have gotten the SoundLink Mini which is also impressive.Oh, and a remote would be cool to. Maybe there is an app for my phone that I don't know about that would allow me to mute, or adjust the volume when I am not in reach of the III itself.

    Bose is an amazing brand but I have seen other models that are competing at this price and I just don't think this is the no.1 in it's class. Design I'd give 4 star, sound quality 3 star. The sound quality doesn't seem rich and deep, mid-tones are okay. Battery life was less than expected.

    Great Battery Life

    By Tony

    from NJ

    Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III (Silver):

    Traditional Bose sound. Very robust and deep base. Very easy to setup up. Battery life up to 14hour. Beats its competitors. My sister bought this for herself and I ran out next day and got myself one.

      Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III (Silver):

      This is a terrific product. The sound is excellent and can achieve good volume. It can receive bluetooth signals over a great distance (but that may be more a function of my computer than the receiver). The only thing I haven't tested yet is how long a charged battery lasts, as I keep it plugged in most of the time.

      This product was a gift to my son it was in his wish list. The good thing is that he got to try it in my house since this way a got the chance to experience the sound and it was fantastic. After that I decided that I will get something different for my self from Bose. The sound was clear and amazing. I will get the radio with Cd system from Bose witch is very good looking and the sound is amazing too.

          What an outstanding piece of technology. The SL3 speaker provides full rich sound in such a small and portable package. "Audiophiles" will scoff at it but for the size and price you will not find a better product. Fills a room with quality sound playing almost any type of music. The simple interface makes it easy to use. About the only thing I'd like to see improved is a better travel case for it.

            There are no audio cables to connect, when you get tired loosing connections over bluetooth. "Best" speaker maker can't keep up with the technology? Bluetooth 2 only?

            Sound quality is good. But for the price, can it you expect less?

This and B&H's consistently fabulous service were the perfect match and resulted in one very pleased customer.

                    Very good sounding for its size, like many Bose products. Better sounding than the smaller tube shaped units, although those are more easily portable. That said, one could still stow the SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III in luggage pretty easily and have good sound wherever. Very solid build. Very good aesthetics. Easy to setup. No call taking functionality. Not featherweight.

                    I wish I could give 5 stars, but I couldn't. The speaker is very well build, slim/light and has a HUGE battery life (+7 hours tested). Its loud, but not much louder than 'mini soundlink'. You'll get a very nice sound quality even at max vol. The problem is that you cannot expect deep bass, to listen hip-hop or jazz this sucks.In summary, it fills a large space, can be used outdoors nicely and is compact enough to carry everywhere. Besides battery life, mini soundlink is 80% and much cheaper.

                    Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III (Silver):

                    I have a few parties lined up this summer's end. This unit has great sound (of course, it's Bose!). It pairs easily, and the indoor bluetooth range is about 20' with my iPhone 5S.
                    Bose doesn't allow discounts anywhere, so I knew I wouldn't suddenly find it for less after I bought it. The control panel is sealed/rubberized against moisture, and wipes clean easily.
                    My only complaint -- for this amount, an INCLUDED storage/carry sleeve or case for the unit and charger would have been better.
                    I don't need to spend extra on fruity colored plastic shells.

                      The sound from this singular unit is as good if not better than larger, more cumbersome speakers. Sound quality is top notch. Its sleek design and simplicity of installation make it a perfect fit for the 15' conference room table. Very satisfied.

                      I have purchased each of these systems (1,2, & 3), and they have always performed as advertised. This third version is on par with the previous versions but think it has slightly better base tones and sound clarity. For a mobile speaker you can use anywhere, there is no other better speaker in the market. I would also recommend buying the case as it provides a little more protection to the system.
