Bose expands its iconic SoundLink Bluetooth® speaker collection with the SoundLink Flex portable speaker. Featuring a grabbable, and ultra-rugged design, it features exclusive Bose technologies to deliver clear sound that can fill a living room while entertaining, and loud enough for any outdoor event. Bose PositionIQ™ technology helps to automatically detect the speaker’s orientation, so whether upright, hanging, or flat on its back, the speaker will deliver rich sound. Its IP67 waterproof and dustproof rating makes it a reliable companion on any kind of adventure.
A custom transducer of the compact speaker maximizes clarity and combines with dual-opposing passive radiators that turn vibration into a powerful audio output. To create natural, full sound, Bose proprietary digital signal processing (DSP) technology minimizes distortion.
Its IP67 rating and premium materials make the SoundLink Flex resilient. Resistant to corrosion and UV light, its soft silicone back and powder-coated steel grille protect it from drops and bumps. The tightly sealed acoustic components keep water, dust, and dirt out and won’t compromise audio performance. It can even float to the water’s surface after an accidental drop in the bathtub, pool, or ocean.
For the first time in a Bluetooth speaker, the Bose SoundLink Flex detects its orientation and automatically adjusts to deliver uncompromised audio through Bose PositionIQ technology.
Measuring 7.9″ wide, 2.1″ deep, and 3.6″ high, and weighing just over 1 pound, the Flex is available in three colors: Black, White Smoke, or Stone Blue.
The SoundLink Flex’s setup remembers up to eight connections for seamless switching from one device to the next. With the help of the Bose Connect app, the user can control the Flex, personalize settings, and receive the latest software updates. And on-speaker buttons allow to power on/off, turn volume up/down, connect to Bluetooth, and play, pause, or skip tracks. The Flex has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that offers up to 12 hours of playback. The speaker uses USB-C® charging with the charging port placed on the opposite side of the utility loop.
The SoundLink Flex is available for $149.
