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.

            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.

              Comments about Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III (Silver):

              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.

                Bought this to use on my patio and have been very happy with its performance. Audio quality sounds great and as with most Bose products delivers.a large sound field from a small package. Battery life is great I have had the unit playing music on my patio for over 8 hours with no problems. It is a little pricey but with Bose you get what you pay for.

                  I am a part time yoga teacher. I bought this speaker to play music during class and not have to rely on the stereo equipment of the studios or wherever I teach. The speaker does really well. It has a very good range and depth of sound for its size. It is also good for picnics, back-deck grill outs, hotel rooms, and anywhere you might need good quality sound on the go. One con I can think of this far is the price.

                    I move every 2-4 weeks (professional housesitter), but won't sacrifice supurb sound quality for my music. I had the Soundlink Mini for portability, and liked it a lot. I decided to upgrade to the Soundlink III, however, for a bit more robust sound, and I'm very happy.

                    Fills a whole floor of a house with sound, but still light enough to throw in a bag. Bluetooth works flawlessly, and battery seems to last forever. Love this thing.

                      Unmistakable Bose sound quality in a nice portable package. Pairs very easily with my iPhone 5S. Sound quality seems best when you place near a solid object or have something to bounce off of. Fills a very large studio space with excellent sound. Excellent materials - looks, feels and most importantly SOUNDS high quality.
