    Bose SoundWear Companion reviews

    SoundWear Companion Speaker (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 133.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for Motorbikes!!! I ride a fairly "naked" Harley (FSXB Breakout) and was looking for a speaker that replaces a normal sound system which people normally get installed in large bikes, like RoadKing, or StreetGlide. Headphones on bikes are illegal in FL, so a speaker is the only legal and safe way to enjoy music. Tried different BT speakers that I mounted on the bike frame, but most of them were difficult to hear when riding over 50 mph due to wind noise. This Bose is different: with the helmet on and even at high speeds it is still very easy to hear and I average 8-9 hours on one battery charge. Tested them recently on my 7-hour ride from Mobil AL to Daytona Beach, FL. Definitely recommend for the bikers!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Companion for cyclists. When I first saw the SoundWear Companion speaker, last month, I knew it was the one that I needed. As an avid cyclist in the state of Florida, where wearing earbuds or headphones are illegal, I like to have some music on the road. Using Bluetooth speaker is not a good idea, you basically can't hear the speaker as soon you go over 20mph because of the wind. The SoundWear Companion speaker is the ideal speaker for my rides, I can hear the music, or talk hands free without loosing focus of my surroundings, I still can hear the traffic or other cyclists around me. Another great product from Bose

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprising Quality Purchased two of these last night as Christmas presents. My wife got her's early. Sat for about an hour listening to the Beatles and Neal Diamond off Amazon Prime and IHeart Radio. Totally forgot I was wearing the thing and it sounded like I was listening to my Soundbar or Color Link. The Low Base is astonishing for such a low speaker. Also called my wife while she was wearing it on her cell phone. She never had to take her phone out of her purse. The speaker told her who was calling! Really Nice! The phone quality was no different than if she was speaking in her phone mic! She was blown away at how well I sounded. In short! This device is my new favorite toy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceed my expectations! I was wandering around Best Buy the other day and I came across this device. At first I was skeptical because I thought it was going to be a bulky device with decent quality. I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt. Boy, was I wrong. The device is very light (surprisingly, since it looks somewhat big) and the sound quality is astounding. I really had doubts about the device mainly because of the look but once I connected my phone and played music, I was taken aback. I will definitely invest money in this product because it will be nice to utilize it when I study, clean the house, or do other household tasks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice speaker and convenient I received this as a Christmas gift from my spouse, we first saw them at a Bose store near our house and thought they were pretty cool. Their best feature is that if listening on a lower level, the person wearing this can still hear the music well, while people around them cannot hear anything. Only thing I did not really like is that the cover can be a pain to put on and take off at times (but does not really have to come off). Also, the material that the speaker, not covers, are made of, if you have pets, be aware.. the animal hair will stick to this so be careful where you place it if you do not have the cover on it. I have had this a few weeks and so far so good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super device! I received my SoundWear Companion Speaker yesterday and I love it! It's my seventh Bose product and I love each one. The quality just keeps getting better. My newest device has an amazing sound and my husband can watch TV while I listen to music without bothering him or having to wear headphones. So I can still hear timers and buzzers, etc. while I work. It's very easy to use and the instructions on the App are very clear. The piece is so light I hardly know it is around my neck. This feels like something out of the future; but Bose has it here today.Thanks and keep up the good work.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expected quality, unexpected uses... I've had SoundWear for about a week. It's a surreal experience how the music wraps around your head. I've found SoundWear is great for enjoying music while staying connected to our lively house without disturbing my family with loud music. I also use it extensively on WFH days to join conference calls. It's far more natural sounding than headphones or speakerphone, plus it keeps me mobile to pace around the office! ;) My only disappointment is the subtle delay that makes it difficult to watch video with SoundWear. Given the almost "surround sound" experience, I would love to use these to watch movies on my iPad, but the delay makes that annoying. Would have given 5 stars if not for the delay.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A cool piece of sound echnology! Just received SoundWear as a gift. First off as a gift the packaging was very high end giving one the initial impression that this is a high quality item! They are great to listen to music (Pandora) while doing other pc work and monitoring for incoming calls. The sound quality is great and your voice over the phone is also high quality, so nice for business calls when working at your desk The only item I would fault is the placement of the control buttons. Being placed on the outside edge of the Soundware makes keyboard 'strokes' like pushing two buttons at once (mute a phone call) very difficult. If the buttons were on the inside edge of the Soundware it would be so much easier. Not a deal breaker however. But another great BOSE product either way!
